After reading CRZ's recap (and if you haven't you should read this one) I got to wondering how many people actually give their car a name. I for one was oblvious to the idea until I met my girlfriend two and a half years ago.

She had a car that I was afraid of named Mr. Shakey, for obvious reasons. When she asked the name of my car and found out I didn't name it she was SHOCKED. I kinda pussed out and blamed it on the fact that I had just gotten the car, an 88 Honda, just a little while ago. Plus I wasn't to high on the idea of naming it at the time, but after being pressured I named him Mr. White. Partly because he's white and partly because I had just watched Resivor Dogs recently I guess. It could also have to do with the fact that I was feeling very uncreative.

Since then we moved east giving Mr. Shakey away, he ended up getting stolen and is still MIA. She later picked up a car she didn't like and stuck it with the name Mr. Blue. She's since dumped that and now she driving Rita. So we have Mr. White and Rita...anyone else name their cars?

Mine doesn't really have a name, but it's often referred to as "that pile of shit" so maybe I'll go with that.

I too was converted to the "car-naming" camp by my girlfriend (now wife). She had (and now we have I suppose, no prenup here!) an 86 Honda Accord named Phil. At first I was skeptical calling an inanimate object by an anthropomorphic name. It seemed like I was 6 and talking about my Teddy Bear or something. But now he's "Phil" to me too.

As for what to name the car, manuals transmissions are male. Automatics are female.

I had an '84 VW Scirocco I called "Nanook" because the heater didn't work very well (leaky heater core). Even had it on the license plate. That car was my best friend ever.

I had an '89 VW Fox I named Utah because it had a UDOT window sticker in the back that said "DON'T WASTE UTAH" (referring to not littering) and I thought of it as a subliminal message to tell people not to rear end me. They never did!

My '90 VW Corrado was named "Satan" because it was bright red and possessed. Damn car.

My '75 VW Dasher was called "Lemon" because it was yellow (it was a wagon with FAKE WOOD PANELING! HA!). It wasn't a lemon in the "runs like crap" way though.

CRZ, that was a great write-up on your beloved Colleen. I remember reading that original article.

Some cars are legends.

When I first got my 92 Grand Am, I named it "Starship" after the personal jet Led Zeppelin used to fly around in. Those were some good times.

My car is the Wonkamobile, because everything in it seems to be backwards. The antenna is one of those in the dead center of the roof, the air conditioning kicks in when you turn the heat on, it gets 1000 different FM channels, none of them clearly. It's's the Wonkamobile!

Okay, my first car was an '84 Silver Nissan (Datsun) Stanza Hatchback stick shift. I refered to it either as "The Stanza" or "Liquid Chrome" for the unbelievable speeds I could coax out of that car. This was a car that had a lot of trouble making it up hills in 4th gear. It survived 3 accidents (a drug dealer running from the cops, a deer, and a neurosurgeon) none of which was my fault, but then the fourth (another dear) managed to explode the front grill, and push the engine block back.

My second car was a brown automatic 88' Ford Thunderbird. Got my first speeding ticket in it, and then the engine blew up. I'll call her "The Bitch"

My current car is a '92 dark blue 5-speed Honda Accord, runs like a dream and I love it. No name yet.. any suggestions?

The only one of my cars that ever got a name was my 1982 Blue Subaru Wagon that lived for 189,000 miles - I even dumped a bucket of Gatorade over the hood one cold sunday morning in western nebraska when it hit 100,000 - her name was "Sue Baloo"

Well I always call my car the L-Mobile (a play on my nickname L-Mo.)

I just stick a number at the end of it.. L-Mobile 1, L-Mobile2, and hopefully in the distant future L-Mobile 3.

I have a Cadillac which has no name. She does not desire one. She is just....large. I also have a broken down truck named Rocinante. He survived a 60mph rollover accident, but frame rot killed him. Gotta figger out what to do with him. I also have an Oldsmobile which I have not named yet. I don't even know its gender yet. I'm in the process of forming an intimate commuting relationship with it.

i didn't name my car {it's still in my parents name) but my first bike was a 96 Ninja, and it was black w/ purple rims, so i named her Psylocke (the purple ninja from the x-men)

My current bike is a 87 Honda VFR Interceptor 700F2 and she's named Lilith (The Darkstalkers character, a former biker friend of my named his bike, an 86 500 VFR Morrigan, Lilith's sister...)

Psylocke isn't a ninja! She's British!

Can you tell how long it's been since I read comics?
