Default Naming your car...

How many of you guys actually have a name for your car?
I have seen some of them. Like Zilla, SLEeper, and Silver Bullet.

Today my crew made fun of my Bonnie being all clean and shiny in the middle of bad weather and snow/slush.(drove to work clean and home dirty) They decided somehow to start calling the car the "Black Pearl". I had to hear it all day. I told my kids what they called and now it is stuck as they love the name.

It'* better than the name they called the last car..."Big Green".

I had to come up with a name when it was selected for COTM, so i picked "Green Streak." I kinda got tired of the name tho since the car is a Super Slow Edition.

Mine is "White Lightning II". My first '94 was "White Lightning", but I sold it due to multiple problems. :(

I was in the same boat as JDB.

I needed a name for mine when I won COTM and chose Sapphire due to the color

To the members of BC, myself and a growing number of my friends, she'* been known as Guinevere
Chose that name because the name means 'Smooth' and 'White'.

Otherwise she'* been known as the Boozemobile, most of my friends called it that through high school, until they found out her name, so some of them have started calling her Gwen.

LOL. Same here. Its simple I guess, but kinda funny for 2 different members.

Now I need a proper name for the truck....I normally refer to it as the Evalanche or the Ascalade simply for its abundance of options, practically making it an EXT. However, I've not gotten a personal name for it. Relevant suggestions are welcome. :P

My b-ville is named Twilight because is a sort of smokey, not really sure what you'd call it sort of a color. My stang is Enigma because the strangest things kept happening with her and I couldn't figure them out.
