Eric, don't you think the member that has 'Black Ice' as a name for his car that you just noticed before posting this topic might be at least a LITTLE upset with the near-plagararism?

Why don't you come up with something YOU can come up with? Make it YOURS. Make it UNIQUE.

i'd been thinking about it for a few weeks, one of my buddys from school suggested blue ice and i said why.. he said 'the car'* been cold to you ..broken down alot. ice is cold so blue ice since it'* b lue'

it'* been running thru my head

i think it'* a bad coincidence perhaps. .

Thats how things get real names! Someone says something and it just sticks. As far as originality, well, I'm sure there are several cars out there named " *color* ice" but I can see how that would be frustraiting considering the timing and same club. Friend of mine had a white tempo, it had 2 names, "white lightning" and "The POS". It got hit and totaled and he got a brown bronco 2. It only followed that when a POS gets hit you end up with a "Brown Streak". May not be original but they stuck, he wasn't too fond of the name for the bronco at first but then it just became to be the right name. Just like my old "Flying Death Rocket" (red lumina with no cat and un-safe seat belts) and my freinds '84 GP which I can not post the name of but I can tell you that the replacement for it was a white Explorer and was named "The Cracka"

Some names are original, some are not, some you hate but they end up sticking and eventually funny. Have fun with names. I think cars with true names end up lasting longer and become immortalized.

I liked this post. It made me laugh about the 'brown streak'

I know where the name of the 84 gp was going also.. LOL

i can't think of any other good name that i like for it. i do see where he'* coming from about the name being similar..
