Question of the Week: Do you name your cars?

I had one I called CASH COW…every week it was something else that cost $$$$

I have a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 that is named Bella… short for Bellissimo or beautiful. Wife named her but she also calls her the thirsty bitch

Yes, my 1963 Ford Galaxie 500 XL (owned 32 years) named ‘Gloria’ and 2005 Chrysler Crossfire is ‘Ginger’! and my daily is a GMC Sierra 4x4 pickup truck (no photo) named ‘Bertha’ -she’s a big girl ! 100_1211|666x500

Every car and the '53 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup I once owned have been named. We become attached to our primary mode of transportation like we are attached to our pets. Thus they get named!

When I was a kid in the late 70’s early 80’s I had a 69 Mach 1 I named the General Grant because Grant beat Lee ( Dukes of Hazzard reference for the less informed ) . The next Time I named a car my Girlfriend named my 06 Mustang because when I bought it there was a National Insurance commercial about a guy with a giant baby which was his Blue late Model Mustang and they Played that song "Baby " by Mickey & Sylvia , my Mustang is Blue so …

I just recently purchased a 72 F100 I call " Big Brown Bertha " .

Yep, doesn’t everybody? My 50 Silverstreak is “Bonnie the Ponty”, my 50 mildgreen Buick Special is “Mildred” after the original owner and my farm truck is “Bessie”, of course. :wink:

Yes; I call my 65 Corvair “Willow” as it’s painted Willow Green.
