I have always named my cars over the years. They generally just come to me after being with the vehicle and knowing their ways.
Feel free to add a pic and a story, if there is one.
86 Merucry Cougar - "The Big Cat" Obvious. This car was hella long, and growled when I hit the gas!
97 Accord Coupe SE - It was red, so I called it "Cherry". My buddies teased me and called it "Lipstick"
2001 CRV - "Silver Surfer" - Because it handled so well...particularly in the snow (and it was silver )
95 Acura Legend "Lady Legend"
2009 Tiguan - still working on a name but I have been playing with "The Town Jeweler".
The name comes from a line from one of my favorite rappers who says "Reckless naked girls get necklaces of pearls...compliments of the town jeweler" The Tig is White Gold, but looks like pearl to me at times.
The name still doesn't quite fit yet though.
