Cool What do you call your car?

I call mine "The Grinch"
Freinds call it the snot rocket, bugger, and feeling froggy.
I even refer to it as the "ol wagon" at times.
What do you call yours?

It depends on how the car is acting. When it is good to me i call it Betsy, When it acts up or leaves me stranded it's name it ***** (aka female dog).

Mine's "Li'l Bandit", courtesy of my girlfriend. She just started calling it that one day and the name stuck. The name is a reference to Snake (the career criminal) and his car on "The Simpsons"

Mine is Bigred. Even though it is maroon, I have plans to paint it red to match the name. I grew up with a bunch of thugs, so the color red just stuck with me.

I usually refer to my cobra as da snake.

My 90LX has no name yet I have to see how it performs at the track. Hopefully "The Beast" will fit it.

88workcar I like the color of your car cause it is different. I am thinking about going with a bright orange for my stang.

later,

Right now they are "the bike" and "the GT."

I've called the car many different things, Sally, 'The Turd' (since its supposed to be the slowest of the GT's) 'The Freak', see sig..

I plan on getting an older one, so I may end up calling it them cammer, and the windsor but only time will tell.

I had a 95 blue thunderbird that I called blue beast and when the tranny went out I called it blue lemon.

I call my mustang "She" and "Her". I reckon she needs a real name but I haven't gotten around to it, yet.

I'm thinking about calling mine "Clark Kent" because except for the Stormin Norman hood it looks totally stock, down to the pony rims. It is totally docile and unassuming looking (though the exhaust note does give it some authority, even at idle) and you can't hear the Kenne Bell supercharger at idle... BUT when the bad guys come around she will FLY and usually beat the crap out of them! Thought about Silver Bullit but have seen that one too many times and besides, I have spent a lot of time and effort to keep mine a sleeper so I think the dual personality of Clark Kent is fitting. Or maybe it shoud be Jekel & Hyde...

Default The Mustang

I just refer to mine as the Mustang. My wife calls it "that @#$%& money sucking piece of &^%$# ****". I asked her if her car could run a 13.6? She said what's a 13.6? So now you know why I just call it the Mustang.

LOL

I refer to it as either the "Fox", the "79", or the "The Stang" (pronounced with emphasis). I relate to it more as a pet than a woman. It can't compare to a woman (....in some ways, at least )
