Mine is also named Betty White

She is wrapped in white vinyl

So she is old, white, and wrinkly, thus very similar to Betty White.


Side note - I did not name cars until I met my wife.. she names all her cars. She has a 2014 Jeep Cherokee (little Cherokee, not Grand) and she named it Jasper.. she said "it's a Jeep so it's gotta be boy... But he is kind of girly, I'll name him Jasper, that sounds like a name a gay guy would have"

I recently bought a beater for work, so it got named Chris Brown (I named this one), I still have to go get the custom plate for it CRSBRWN. I found another one like my beater in amazing shape recently and I wanted to buy it just so I could part them in the driveway side by side, one with the tag of CRSBRWN and the other RIHANNA.

My Ram got named Christian because it's gray and can be domineering.

My wife is weird sometimes. Lol.

Not it exactly 'named' but it's referred to as the 'Pop-Rod' since it looks like a grandma/grandpa car visually.

It's now much lower to the ground so that removed some of the 'grand' vibe. My dad's dad was known as 'Pop'; I call my dad 'Pop', & since I've been in the gray-man club for years you can figure the logic out.

Greetings Guys; My favorite on the place on internet to correspond. First Merry Christmas & Best wishes. Car names, The Slug, a 61 four door blue flame my dad took in trade for my 63 Vette after I entered the Service. I drove it once on leave & told Pa I never wanted to see it again. He sold it a few weeks after I shipped out (war 1966). I did get $900 for it & used it for a down payment to buy the 68 L-78 Rat Camaro. After the service didn't drive the Camaro during the winter & purchased the 64 Silver wagon. It became the Starship-Gray Ghost. Then came the Bronze Brick, yes I do miss it. And now days the GuTOo, the wife gave it that name. Oh this coming June 5th at Great Lakes Drag Way some of us Holden owners will be meeting up for some rubber burning. If your in the area join us for some Fun. Ole' Bob.

The Monte? No. My S-10 is my "Little Buddy" and my Van is "Ole Bear" Both appellatives arose for differing reasons but basically pertain to the role that each serves for me. Practical example, my Little Buddy brought me home from the hospital last week.

Merry Christmas to all here as well.

I have only had one car with a name . I didn’t name it my friends did . It was a 1969 Javelin that was called Silver Bullet . I would love to have another one but there hard to find and part are even harder to find. I think the name came from an old Coors light add. I would like to name my Caballero but all the names I come up with are to common . We don’t need more trucks/cars called White Trash or Mullet.

Hey, if it's a Caballero then why not delve into a Spanish text and give it a Spanish Moniker, like "El Jefe" or whatever.

My two that where named where both said by my oldest brother. He said the name and it stuck. My 69’ Cutlass was Gutlas ( he’s a Mopar man) and my 78’ 442 ended with Ugly1 as pictured on my avatar. Loved both and wish I never sold them.

Should be proud of that one!

Small Block? Mighty Mouse was the original name for a 350 cid or any clear “white” alcohol. Gin, Tonic, Quavo…give it a set of red halo headlights call it Johnny W. ( Winters) if you’re a blues guy. Tonic used to be medicinal if you drive it for fun.
