    I call my car the "Wonder Dodge" because it is a 1989 Dodge Shadow and it is a wonder that it is still running!! (refer to my thread, "what car should I buy?")

    Always! My current car, a dark red Acura, is called Raz (short for raspberry). My previous cars have been: 2 bronze Chevettes in a row named Bompy and Biff, respectively; a dark blue Ford Tempo named Edison, or Ed for short; and a dark red Subaru XT named BuBu.

    All my cars have distinct personalities.

    I don't call my car anything but growing up my mom had a cherry red Ford Fairlane and she called it Betsy.

    I used to drive around a blue 84 Toyota tercel station wagon I called it "TurdCell" becuase it was/is really ugly (thing still runs!). Right now Ive had a blue 94 mustang but I cant think of a good name for it. (Ive ha it for 2 years but still NO NAME) poor thing I usually just call it the mustang or my car

    I LOVE this thread. Now I don't feel so strange. I never named cars, until my daughter got hers and named it "Morfia." Why? I don't know? My 1988 Red Caprice is "Myrtle." My 2001 Green Saturn is "Peabody." My brother had a black car the called "The turd." Wonder why?

    I USED to name my car's: my first was a 1960 Opal Rekord, ugly thing, named Prudence Elizabeth Louise; my 2nd was a 1963 Buick Special, dark green, convertible, named Jennifer Catherine Patricia.

    Then I graduated, and got a 1968 Mustang light green convertible, named it Jason, short for Jake the plumber, he's draining me of all my resources. I had that car for 12 years.

    Finally started to get NEW cars: 1980 mustang, named "Brandy", was the color of brandy, too. Then came parenthood and more boring cars, Ford Escort station wagons, and Aerostar, a Windstar, then an Escort coupe, current car is a white Ford Focus, which is 3 years old, my son and I did our 9000 mile cross country trip in it, and it's still going strong.

    Don't know why I seem to be stuck on Fords. And I have stopped naming them!
