I was accused of being 'crazy' for giving my new car a name. I've named all of my cars and think they all have distinct personalities.

Do you name your cars? I gave my 01 Sable the name "Noxie" :merc:

I've named my cars.

My 1995 Taurus SHO was named "Shogunn" (with two N's because SHOGUN with one "n" was not available as a license plate). I've since sold that car (but kept the plates).

My current vehicle, my 2007 Taurus SE, is "Jib-Jab", as the randomly assigned license plate starts with "JAB".

My 97 SHO is Christine, because when I first got my car she woudlnt shut off even with the key out. Also the movie was on the night I brought her home the movie Christine was on tv. Then my 97 F150 I named it big blue, just cuz its a big and its blue lol. When I had my old 96 F150 its name was black betty. When I drove it home the song black betty by spiderbait was on the radio. Thats how that one stuck.

I refer to it as "el toro," but I wouldn't say I named it that, really.

My friends generally refer to it by the name on the license plate, but that's actually the name they use for me as well, so that doesn't really work either.

i named my 98 se Patrica Olivia Schumacher (P.O.S.) when i first got her and was not so happy about it. since then however the taurus has grown on me quite a bit. especially since i blow away most of my friends ricer cars with their obnoxious exaust systems and rims worth a grand while their front bumper drags on the ground and their cars wont start when its below 30 degrees.

My Gen2 was called Tortoise... mostly cause it was green and a buddy of mine wanted to put a vinyl turtle shell on the roof. The Sentra was called Xsentric.... then it started falling apart. Now its just called the Sentra. Rachel's Gen4 she named Touroouse. I have no idea why.

My first car I bought was a 86' escort with a busted windshield and no side mirrors. Me and a friend bought it for the purpose of putting it into a demo derby. Once we got it to my moms house we wanted to start it up and in our infanite wisdom decided against going and getting gas at the station but use the fuel that was in the shield, which turned out to be already mixed for the lawn mower. When we started it up there was a lot of black smoke and it smelled like a gas powdered weed wacker. So from that day forward it was named the "Weed Wacker" for some reason it never actually made it to a derby and ended up in the junk yard. Just thought I'd share that interesting story with everyone.

As for my Taurus my dad called her "Baby", how creative he can be, "Black Stallion" is what me and my brother have been calling her. Now that she's mine I have stuck with "Black Stallion" since I haven't had any creative flashes.

Sometimes I call mine "The Leviathan". But more often I use the name "S.P.O.C". (Sorry Piece Of Crap) :(
