Oh boy, is there a story behind mine. There was this girl back in high school, and I really liked her, I mean, a LOT. So we finally went out on a date, all went well, she didn't like the movie, because she was scared (saw 2), but that ment she got pretty dang close, so, that means she trusts me. I was all cocky and like, oh yeah, she'* all mine, and then I was talking to my friend on Instant Messenger (NEVER talk on IM drunk ), and I started talking about Emily, and saying she was my girlfreind and how we were gonna get married in a few years and all this complete BS that wasn't the least bit true. Now this kid, Henry, who'* a big a$$ (and a ricer, btw, haha), copied and pasted that whole conversation, printed it out, and gave it to Emily. It ruined my life for the next 5 months. I went into a deep depression, started hanging out with the wrong people, did some bad things, and actually almost got arrested. Then I made up with Henry, realizing that I would do the same thing to him, and I started getting out of my funk. I graduated, was accepted to Xavier, got a job, and got my car. and THAT is how my car got its name.

I called mine "The Reaper"

story behind that was i was thinking of what to name the car because so many people had names for theres but i didnt, so as i was thinking a song came on the radio that i thought fit perfectly that song was Blue Oyster Cults "Dont Fear The Reaper" I always looked at my cat and thought it had a mean/sinister look so thats what stuck

Mine was named after the now dead Bonneville that belonged to Complinitor (our first Treasurer/Store Manager). His car was sandwiched between two 18-wheelers.

Badzilla was totalled, and Complinitor bought a Monte Carlo SS. With his permission, I renamed my 93 GreenZilla in honor of his late car. Badzilla at the time was our quickest L36 car.

SLEeper is an easy one to figure out.

Grandma'* Revenge

It was thought up by another member (Sorry, I don't remember who you are ) but it really stuck with me because it was so true. My grandparents owned the car before me. My grandpa was the primary driver of the car since my grandma didn't like the hard steering and stiff button on the floor shifter (she has arthritis in her hands). In 2000, my grandparents bought a Toyota Avalon XLS that was much easier for my grandma to drive. Once my grandpa died in 2003, she really wanted the car gone, esp. since she had no need for it. So, guess who got the car

Long story short, "grandma" got "revenge" by not haveing to deal with, or drive, the SSEi again by giving it to me.

Also, 2000SilverBullet came up with the term "Gravenge" as a shortend version of the name.

First 94 was "DrugRunner" because I had been searched every time at the border.

This one I guess has inherited "DrugRunner 2." I actually was searched again in August. But it'* a continuation of the past Bonne since it'* life was cut too short.

Coincidentally, I actually kind of work in the drug business now
