I'd never named a car before coming to this site, so I just used whatever came to mind at the time.

BoB (now retired) was a Bucket of Bolts.

Zed is a bit obvious (if you ignore the X)...(and don't speak with a 'Murrican accent)

Baa is a BA Astina.


When I finish rebuilding my bike, I'll have to think of a really clever name before I add it to the garage.

Smile naming cars

Hi
everyone i have named most of my cars. only ones not named where alfa romeos. i loved them so much had everything i was looking for in a car. newer versions lack charater. my motorhome was named by my partner got it home after 8 hours driving across northern england to the very top of scotland. she said what a beast thus named beastie. lol. everyone who has driven or riden in it thinks its far from a beast easy to drive and all are planning road trips in it. that was the orginal design brief.

Mine was easy. It was literally written on the passenger side door!

Apparently the original owner had a spiteful ex-boyfriend that kicked the door in, and etched some colorful words and whatnot into the side of the car. Fortunately, it was almost all in the one door, so I was able to replace it before the kids started asking what it meant. It was also part of why I got it cheap.

But the name has stuck.

When I started reading your story I remembered a picture that I saw on Imgur!

I wonder how often that happens...

Instead, I would subtly ask for my keys back to get something from my car, and then just drive off!

It's German, it's big, it's fast.

So I thought of a big German who liked speed.



And yes, he was a evil, vile human being.

Everything apart from the Auto is lovely. A bit like if Hermann stuck to stamp collecting and flying...

I named mine in honor of all the hybrid owners who pull up next to me and start smirking, cause at the same time, I'm doing the math in my head and smirking right back. Gotta say, this little car has grown on me, and when it finally dies I think I'm going to bury it in the back yard in the pet cemetery
