post #31 of 56
Unfortunately, all of my photos from those days were stored in my basement when it flooded.
You may be able to find some in the of the West Coast collections of artcar photos.
I know there are a couple of coffee table books, dunno if Sci ever made it in any.

My aunt has a bright yellow beetle... with tweety painted on it!! (It's very embarassing, really) The headlights are big blue eyes, the roof has a few hairs and the hatchback has a tail. If I didn't hate tweety.. it would be a pretty neat car. But unfortunately every time I drive in it I have to duck my head to make sure noone sees me in it!

I call mine "Mario Kart" partly because it is red. However, I often pretend I am Wario, complete with evil laugter!

I first read the title of this thread as 'do your cats have names??' and was thinking, ummm, who's don't?

I don't have a car, but if I did, I imagine I'd name it.

No but I know it's "alive" and it does not want one.

My first truck, 1987 Chevy S10 short box, with a 350 engine, wow the thing would go, her name was MY JUNK

My 1st car, a 1986 Dodge Omni, was known as the Whalermobile because I was constantly going down to Hartford Whaler games. Unfortunatly, it was a red car (and would match the current Carolina Hurricanes color scheme) and not green or blue. I miss the team more than the car.

There's a car in my family that's known as the Clown Car. It's a 1995 Geo Tracker, white 2 door softtop convertable. It's gone from my sister to my father to my brother. It actually is a great car for either parking in the city or getting around in bad weather. It just looks like something that should be in the scrap heap.

My current car (a silver Saturn) doesn't have a name, even though it's my favorite one I've had so far.
My first car was an '86 Olds Calais. It was so old, the fabric liner on the ceiling was falling down and I could hardly see out of the rearview window. We called it Amy's Ghettomobile.
My 2nd car was a '96 Red Civic. It was so cute. I called it "The Copmobile" because it is true- police DO like to pull over red cars most frequently!!!

My 1st car, an '89 Chevy Cavalier, was called the "Bugmobile" because when it had belonged to my om, there were a bunch of really gross dead bugs in the back window. I immediately vacuumed them out, but kept the name.

My current car, a '98 Dodge Neon is called "Leon the Neon." My dad came up with it, and it made me laugh.

Well I've had a few cars my lifetime but have only named two...

My 1997 Pontiac Grand AM that I named Bertha. I loved that car right up until the time I caught sight of Beast my current car. 2002 Buick Rendevous Red.

I also named my Mom's car Burnehilda. Another Buick that I used to have to borrow all the time because the Grand AM would break down.

My dad has an old truck that he named Old Grey. Old grey is nearly retired but gets driven around down at our farm occasionally. Along with Blackie who I believe broke down last weekend. He was a good old truck although he looked like someone took a baseball bat to him.

My old car was named christine because it had a mind of its own.

My beloved car is called Dave Vegas!

He is a Vauxhall Corsa Vegas (Special Edition) and I loved the fact that he was a Vegas and English, so I liked the idea that he would be like a Bingo Caller from Blackpool or something!

Just Ol' Blue......piece of junk car I have.....
post #46 of 56
some of these car names are great!! I esp. like "Luci" as in short for "Lucifer" and the motorcycle "Bastet" My family names their cars so my mom's Toyota 4-Runner is "Big Red" and my Toy truck was "Lil' Red" and my '89 Toyota 4wd Corolla Wagon is "Sport", and my husband's Chevy 3/4 ton, 4wd "yard mule" is "The Chevy" which actually implies the truck's personality - it hauls the firewood, makes the runs to the county dump & climbs up & down the mountains of CA, NV, & AZ with 'nary a complaint!!

Mine doesn't have a name, but I do call it "my Celi". However I have seen that ALL Celica owners call their car, "Celi".

post #49 of 56
Of course!!!


From top to bottom:

"Vultor" (94 Firebird Formula)
"The Claw" (95 Eagle Talon Tsi AWD)
"Silver Bullet" (96 Camaro Z28)

I think all cars should have names!

My first car was a 94 Ford Escort hatchback, bright blue - no other name for it than the smurfmobile.

My current car a silver 2 door Civic is Bullet just bc when I got it, it seemed so much sleeker and faster than the Escort.

My friend had an 88 Chevy Nova that she used to call Puppy bc it needed lots of love and encouragement (it was so old and always breaking down!)

Ahhhh, another child of the 80's!!!

Can't name a car Bullet b'cuz that's my DAD's nickname (not many people know his real name)

The youth leader at my church (who's been youth leader since I was a youth) still has her 81 Ford pickup - baby blue w/white. She's SugarPlum, or SP for short. I remember more than one road trip with her patting the dashboard, saying, "C'mon SP, you can do it!!! Good girl SP, almost there!!"
