Default Car names

Just sheer pure curiosity here. What'* everyone'* car name, and why?

Mine'* the Chestnut Mare. She'* brown and has a flat spot on the front two tires (no anti-locks and i had to brake to miss a deer), so it sounded almost like hoofbeats when I drove for awhile. Not to mention the large size of my car to begin with. Also because of all the horses under the hood

I'll bite.

I had the wacky notion of putting red interior lighting in my Bonneville, so Drifter in all his wit dubbed my car the RedLight District...it caught on. So it stuck



NorthStar was derived as an inside story coupled with the fact that its powered by the almighty Northstar V8.

Good times

Mine is DrugRunner. Jim suggested it after I told him I was searched at the Canadian border. Then I was searched for a second time a month later. So since I'm not a drug dealer, my car was dubbed "DrugRunner" Gives people something to think about.

However, since DrugRunner can be taken the wrong way by some I've been thinking of a new name lately...one that can be displayed on the small back window that someone won't TAKE OFF!!

I was thinking "RumRunner" since I had a Rum Runner at Tully'* and it'* one of the best drinks I've had...and it'* not too far from DrugRunner.

But Merlin was thinking of naming his RumRunner, so if he wants it, it'* his

Red Baron. After the fighter plane. I dont know why but that popped into my head the day I got him. Got the maltesse crosses (sp?) for it shortly after. "Even though it doesnt have wings it still flies".
