My GSE is "SexOnWheels II" Her predecessor, a 2000 Alero GS coupe being the origional "SexOnWheels" Which, got it'* name from a comment another member of Aleromod.com made about my car. I had saved up, kept collecting mods, then in a long weekend dropped the car, put on 17" chrome wheels, tinted the windows, painted the headlights, and applied huge gold vynil flames to each side transforimg the typical yawn-inducing Oldsmobile into a unique head-turner.....the 1st comment that was made on the forums was " Wow. That is pure sex" I laughed my *** off, and the name just stuck.

I've been trying to think of names for mine. I was thinking about going with something related to 'envy' since it'* green. I went into the thesarus and found some....
nouns: backbiting, bad sportsmanship, coveting, covetousness, enviousness, evil eye*, green-eyed monster*, grudge, grudging, grudgingness, hatred, heartburn, ill will, invidiousness, jaundiced eye*, lusting, malevolence, malice, maliciousness, malignity, opposition, prejudice, resentfulness, resentment, rivalry, spite
verbs: be envious, begrudge, covet, crave, desire, die over*, grudge, hanker, hunger, long, lust after, object to, resent, thirst, turn green*, want, yearn

Out of those I was thinking Grudge, Heartburn, Ill Will, Spite, Thirst.... Or I may just go with G-Ride, since my last name starts with G.

After reading all those definitions for envy I thought "Mistreated" would be a good name.
I am not sure how you drive, but the definitions lead to mistreatment.

For some crazy reason after reading all that the words "Beyond Redemption" came to mind. I'm weird like that. LOL

The purchase of my car was the result of a self-proclaimed Midlife Crisis. I was sick and tired of driving a mini-van, had been divorced for three years, and had never, ever bought a car that I really liked all on my own...heck, I got married at 19 and never really made any decisions totally on my own... so at Xmas in 2004, I realize that for the first time, I needed to do something for myself. Crisis Management is what she was ...and is today...

I've never had a car that makes me smile when I see it...that makes me feel good to drive...that is cool enough for the kids to want to be seen in it.

In college, my friends called my 73 GP “Sober-Cab”. I was responsible for picking everyone up and then heading out to the first bar. The ride was one way only. After the first bar we walked. After a few, no-one seemed to mind walking, actually, no-one seemed to remember walking.
