My username is my cars name. It didn't really get a name until I got my new plates *** ARR. We were watching Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl, and it went from there. It'* black, it'* shiny and it crewed by the damned. It started as a joke, and it stuck. Heck even my D.I.C says Black Pearl when it starts up

Same for me, car'* name. After I nitroused the car, the first nite out I blew away a Mustang GT. And the following day went to a Fair and saw a cool red license plate with a Cobra on it. Very similar to this



Bought it, put it in the back window. And the name just stuck. A mental "finger" at Ford'* Sport offering.

Not sure how many of you saw the movie "last samurai, but in the movie there is a samurai named 'Nobotada". His armor is gold just like my bonneville. And given my partial japanese heritage i thought it was fitting. 84 is just the year i was born.
