Does your car or truck have a name??

  1. Just wondering here, I know that Rusty has named his favorite truck Totanka Blanca. So I'm just wondering if any off you have named your favorite vehicles??? I've named my 1977 Corvette coupe, Ruby, due to her deep rich red color. Just wanted to know if you've nicknamed any of your babies out there!!! Happy motoring!!! Warrior Woman.

    When the kids were in HS they named our cars. The 71 VW is Ringo (still own), the 68 Valiant (long gone) was George. The 66 Fairlady was Pinkie because of the faded red paint(just sitting up on blocks).

    And for some reason the 73 Dart is Leonard. At the time he was a dull grey with base coat over the worst spots and looked leopardlike, so Leonard the Leopard. We still have Leonard and are restoring him.

    The others are just Buick, Lumina, Van, Truck, White truck kinda dull.

    I had a 71 Gremlin in high school. It was a really funny blue color and we called it the "Blue Goose"! I had a Buick Skylark in nursing school that I called the "Cancer" car because it was rusted so bad. When I got married, I had a Horizan. My husband would call it the "Lee Ioccoa piece of ****"! Haven't named a car since!

    I have several names for my truck, but they are usually used only when it refuses to start.

    I call my 250,000 mile chevy S-10 lucky. On account of I feel lucky every time I drive it and it hasn't caught on fire. Unfortunately my mechanic kindly asked me not to bring it back to him next year for inspection.

    I called my first car (73 super beetle) Betsy

    OldBessie, our old 1980something plymouth reliant station wagon. We paid $200 for it. Ugly but dependable car, even loaned it to friends and my sister who lives 600 miles away. My teenage dtr hated her, I always threatened to paint it the school colors with her ball # painted boldly on the hood and her name on the side, and to drive past the school honking Mean mom ain't I?! LOL
