    Does your car or truck have a Name/Title?

    Or are only the crazies still doing this?

    I think I fit all the categories.

    The Expedition, is always just called "The Ford"

    The Triumph is "The bike"

    The Chevelle is "The Chevelle" or "Dad's Car"

    The GTO has been various things...but never a name, more just a description, my favourite recent one being "That black thing" from when someone local asked what it was.

    The Mark IV has somehow become known as "Big Blue" but that title caught on long before I had ever heard it used, so I am not sure of the circumstances.

    The Mack is "Blockbuster" and is named after a song, actually.

    And my Cadillac is "Branwen" because she is easily the best of them all and deserves a name.

    I know I am not the only one (The Roo Wagon, Sabrina, etc) so who else does?

    I go by "the Cadillac"

    or "the V'' to friends.

    but a personal name? Nope.

    No exciting or weird names here:

    1995 Cadillac - "the Cadillac"
    2007 Jaguar XJ8 - "the Cat"
    2001 Chrysler T&C - "the van"
    1957 Mercury - "The Mercury" or "that old car" (my wife's name for it)

    My wife refers to our Thunder Grey Coupe as "The Shark". Kind of does.....grey color, fin in back, grill is aggressive.

    Alexandra. I fought with it for a long time, but since she's my baby, she deserves a title.

    83 lesabre- "the pimpmobile" (due to it being burgundy inside and out)
    86 cadillac "the crapillac" or "lawn ornament" (it looks alot better in pics than up close, and it actually left a 30 foot long dead spot in my yard) my dad also calls it "the shagillac" occasionally, which is funny since it has no back seat
    My dads 99 E350SD 7.3TD- "the beast" "the work van" "the truck" "need salt? we deliver!" (Due to leftover pinstriping on the back of the rear doors)
    00 safari "the shagfari" (yes ray...it actually caught on), "the little van" (when compared to the e350, its not that big, because the e350 is monstrous)
    87 silverado (caddy motor donor)- "the beast", "that crappy truck"

    Re: Does your car or truck have a Name/Title?

    Somehow I have always had names for our cars. But only for those I really liked and were sort of members of the family. Here are some from the ancient past:

    My Dad's 1960 Cadillac Fleetwood after he had it painted white - "Moby Dick"

    My bright red 1958 Jaguar XK 150 drophead - "Roccinante"

    My amaranto (dark red) 1964 Lamborghini 350 GT - "Passionella von Climax" (Posh for short)

    Our 1972 British Racing green XJ6 - "Sheamus Mac Manus"

    Our 1975 white with dark green landau roof Chrysler Cordoba - "Mrs Simpson" (Wallace for short)

    Our 1975 "Phoenician Ivory" Cadillac Seville - "Samantha" also "Sammy Seville"

    Our white 1978 Dodge Diplomat wagon - "Dudley Do Right"


    My wife's espresso brown 1980 Peugeot 505S - "Yves"

    Our bright red 1983 VW Scirocco Wolfsburg ED. - "Pocket Panzer"

    My pewter gray 1995 Seville STS - "Gray Wolf"

    There were many other cars, but none of them elicited a name except to the 1984 Audi 5000S which became known as "That Damn Audi!"

    One of my neighbors had a 1980 Audi 5000S, he spoke highly of it. In fact it was on his recommendation that i bought our "Damn Audi." His was totaled when it was hit by a 1984 Summer Olympics bus! I always wanted to tell him that bus did him a big favor!

    Clever. But didn't "that woman" as she was derisively referred to by the Queen Mum spell it Wallis?

    All of my cars have had names, as have my sisters' and parents' cars. I think one of the most fitting was Frumpy Fred, the name I bestowed on my Dad's '62 Ford Falcon, which being an image-conscious teenager I was embarrassed to be seen in. I thought it was the dorkiest car on earth.

    You are quite right, the Duchess of Windsor did spell her first name "Wallis," my mistake!
