My car is blue and German so I hoped the word 'blue' would be something cool in German.
blue. blau (blou) - rhymes with "cow"
Therefore, I had to go to option #2 - a German name.

I just refer to our Durango as "my baby". If I was to fce it an actual name, maybe "Moose"? The older style Durangos have a look that reminds me of a moose (without the antlers of course lmao).
Wh refers to his cordless drill as "Betsy".

So my mom shortened the name. Her suburban just became the burban. When she downsized to a Tahoe her methodology led to poor results.

I have a suggestion for her, Moo - my friend who owns a Tahoe calls it the taco. Slightly less scandalous than the previous option.
You can call me NIK

I never had a name for my former car until I didn't drive her anymore - now she's my old "baby". The car I drive now is called "my Dad's car" because it was his and I it still is. I just drive it. and I love it!!

Hubby's truck is a Ford F150, fully loaded, lifted, and with big, thick, shite-kicking mud tires on it.
We call him The Beast.
My dainty-by-comparison auto has been dubbed HERcedes.

My favorite book as a teenage boy was "The Mad Scientists' Club" by Bertrand Brinley.
They had a character, Zeke, who owned a junkyard and had an old truck, named "Richard the Deep Breather".
It struck me funny, and this was well before I understood the other interpretations for deep breathers.
Nonetheless, I haven't named any of my vehicles. Although my motorcycle, which is a Yamaha Virago, has potential, just based on that name. Google "Virago synonym" to see what I'm talking about.
Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

Apparently all of my cars have been female, because they've ALL been named "Bessie" - I have no idea why. Also, the two I have now both have vanity plates that begin with KATZ(***) on them, so now everyone knows I'm a crazy cat lady. Actually, I've gotten a lot of compliments on them!

One of my high school friends named his car "my pants". It made for endless immature jokes.
They got worse when his stereo got stolen and there was a big hole in the dash and he would talk about the hole in his pants and everything that fit there.

I haven't named any of my cars... but the family car growing up was a 1972 Gold Dodge Dart... "Goldie"
It was the car I inherited when I started driving in 1984.

I've always named my vehicles. My dad did, too. That's where I got it from. Now my kids do it.

We call our Tahoe the hoe. We call my 2001 Mercedes E class the POS. There are more things wrong and broken with that car than I can count and every fix is $1000 even for stupid stuff like the broken cup holder.

My first vehicle, at 17, was a big old Plymouth Fury. We called it the Tank. That thing had the touchiest brakes of anything I have ever driven. It probably got 10 miles to the gallon (who really knew back in those days?). You think my Dad was making sure I was safe on the road?!?!
