altho i never have officially named my car, it is known as the "silver streak" among my cousins and myself. this sometimes requires explaining as the car is gray in colour!
my aunt who was the original owner and is now in her late 70'* is well known for her heavy foot. my cousins and i often joked about the looks when this prim and proper lady in this big, heavy sedan pulls out to pass a line of traffic and takes off like a runaway train. the favourite movie of a cousin and i was the 1976 gene wilder/richard pryor movie "silver streak". hence the name.
funnily enough, when she replaced the bonne with a 2002 jag last year, the jag was a matching shade of gray so it instantly became "silver streak part II". especially after her telling us how much smoother the jag was at 100mph than the bonne!
