Default How did you come up with the names of your car?

My black car was shiny, had tint, sounds a tv, vcr and was always clean. So when i drive pass a neighborhood with the music playing, everyone, especially the ladies would look, turn there heads and watch me drive pass. So thats how it became the Show Stopper Edition (My SSE definition). I miss that car. This car i have now might get that attention.

NorthStar is two-fold, I'm a fan of astrology and the fates in the universe plus the car is powered by a Cadillac NorthStar engine.

RedLight District was aptly named when I changed all the interior lighting to red in the 89SE. I give props to Drifter on that one

Well my nickname for years has been "Merlin", and last year I got personalized plates "MERLIN1". I mean I always call my Bonneville, Bonnie, but since everyone here has a "Bonnie/Bonne" (except a few) I decided to name it "Black Magic". Obvious reasons, A) MERLIN B) The car is black.

Mine has been dubbed "The Raven". My buddy has this obsession of getting a big raven painted onto the hood. Sort of like the Phoenix on the FB/TA'* of old.

Well considering my nic is DeathRat.......Bone-Evil is a play on words with a DeathRat Twist! My car has a skull motif (Death & Bones) as well is maroon in exterior colour (hence Evil = blood red) Therefore Bone-Evil struck! My other car is presently known as "Grey-Death" & still awaiting a deathly entrance into it'* realm of racing.

I've been searched the first 2 times coming back across the Canadian border into the US. I guess they think a young guy in a somewhat flashy car who went to TO for a day or two had some ulterior motives. Well they were wrong.

Plus a couple of my friends a while back have said that some ppl may probably think I deal drugs since it'* a nice car and most ppl my age don't drive a car like that. (Which really isn't true anyway...a lot of 21-22 year olds have decent cars..I'm excluding the ones that drive their parents' BMW'* in college)

So Jim thought up DrugRunner as a play on words/joke since ppl that may label me as one will get what they want.
