Little Bunny FooFoo walking through the forest. Scooping up the field mice and bashing them in the head.

When we were in high school my sister named her car Elizabeth Ann. Don't know why, it was a navy blue Pontiac LeMans. I had an orange Pontiac Tempest. No name. Later when I sold it to my brother in law, he named it Al.

I finally started naming cars when I bought my silver BMW convertible. There was paperwork in the glove compartment from the previous owner, he had joined an on-line Beemer club, and his password was "Velvet". So that became her name.

We've had many trucks with no name. Then we bought a white Toyota SUV with an 8 cylinder engine, so he became Butch. As we also had another white SUV with a 6, he became, of course, Sundance. Sundance has since been donated to Rawhide Boys' Ranch. We bought ANOTHER white SUV, a Mercedes, and he is, of course, Benz. I tried to call him Ben, but hubby always says Benz.

We also have a boat, a Mariah Shabah. So her name is Shab.

I named the cars I considered keepers. The project cars or the weekend cruiser cars. Those cars tend to have more sentimental value to me, and naming them helps reinforce that. I don't call them by their names though, but they are named.

The everyday point A to point B cars just get referred to as their model name.

My husband calls his Toyota truck "The Toy". I was recently gifted a Prius which I call my "little black rocket" because its black and sort of looks like a rocket to me. My daughter and Son in law who gave it to me, gets such a kick out of me naming it that. I was really in shock for such a generous gift though. Its not new, a few years old but only 90,000 miles on it so for a Toyota, that like new! It took me a minute to get used to it but now I love me little black rocket, lol.

My wife and daughter named the cars. I bought a new car a few weeks ago and my daughter is wanting me to name it. Nothing comes to mind. Guido? Mater? Luigi?
