He didn't pull anything on me. He'* not responsible for any marks the bra leaves after it'* off the lot which i can see as reasonable, I wouldn't want to be if i were a dealership either. It came new with the car and it was my choice to keep it on...as stupid and as crappy as it was. Someone else had the same problem with the same bra, so it'* something to do with the bra, not the dealership.

Red Baron is on a distinguished road
Default

Named the car after the famous WW 1 fighter ace Manfred von Richthonfen, he was givin the nickname Red Baron, he flew a blood red bi plane and is know for having the most kills out of any WW1 fighters (over 80). Making him extremely wanted by the British forces. The reason i choose this name for my car is 1its red 2 in search of 80 kills
3 ricer kids much like the british are tryin to shot down the redbaron.
Having the iron crosses on the sides people ask me if im a racist, thinking of the swastika?(sp) Then i tell them my car is the red baron they say, whats that.

Mine..."Aeraeik"... is the name of a character in my husband'* second novel (so is "Lictalon" actually). It'* a sci-fi novel set in post-apocalyptic North America, and Aeraeik is a Wolfen (alien race...wolf like, but humanoid form) Quitoria (bounty hunter) cyborg. He is powerful, fast, has all the gadgets and is pretty slick too, so the name fit like a glove.

You all seem to came up with some clever names for your cars. Mine seem so plain and simple. Next car I get, I am going to have to ponder really hard for its name.

Mine Was Si-yar.. which is mispelled just to be unique ( and I was then ).. It'* not Sire like a horse.. but what people called the nobles and such back in medievil days.

Than recently a few months back I have been contemplating on a name change.. the car is white.. so I thought of Snow White ( but too feminine.. no offence.. that'* like callin it Tele-Bonnie or Bonnie-Tubbies kinda thing ).. then sleepin beauty cause it'* a sleeper and a beauty but heard that name has been tossed around by a few already. My favorite idea so far was "White Supremecy" ( and no I"m not a ****.. kinda funny to see an Asian Pride guy in a KKK outfit.. lmao ) but refer to the car and all.. but knowing my luck.. when I drive thru the ghetto.. I"m going to get drive by shootin on me .. and knowing my luck I'll get pulled over by some non white officer slappin all the ticket he can on me.. which probably will include Racial profilin and Racial Hate crime

The first one was never published...it was just a practice run (so to speak)...it serves the purpose of backstory now as his series will begin with novel two. He is about halfway done with that (it is mostly written, but needs a lot of editing and rewrites), but he will be trying to get it published when it is done. It'* very good (and I'm not just saying that because I'm married to him )...and we'll be sure to let the forum know when he gets published. If you ever wanna hear a very long and detailed description of the novels, just ask him at a meet sometime (just don't do it unless you have a few hours free :P ).
