My ride is always an extension of myself.
My 57 is a she - "Black Bettie". Shes all dressed up and pretty.
My dodge is a he.
That sounds like some of the old farts I hang out with
All my cars need me to spend money on them to keep them happy, and my daily driver leaks trans. fluid on the driveway every once in a while.
It's an "IT". It's a thing...
Mine is a hermaphrodite. It's got something for everyone!
my 65 catalina hardtop is "selina"
the 52 chevy chopped is "ruby", she was red once and had a sticker of a pin up named ruby so it fit
and my 63 catalina is named "neptune", from the color, but still a girl.
And if i get a truck again it will be a neither, too manly so i usually call them the pick em up truck like alot do, it IS in the way you treat them i guess.
Come on look at the "Hooters" on her... and that big ol smile!!
Even wife and daughter name our daily driver cars. Wife's car is a 99 Expedition (Sally) and she named my 2002 KIng Ranch F150 "Duke" because of the saddle leather seats... we got a Focus we just call a "Piece of Shit".
Mines a transvestite....
In English, not-living items aren't subject to a gender, like they are in a Latin language, like Spanish fr instance.
In Spanish "vehicle" is called the masculine word "vehiculo" (with an accent over the "i" my computer won't do in English.)
But I wouldn't take that to have much relevance to women because in Spanish, there is no female word for "brain".
Even though they have gender specific names, Herman, Bertha, they must be bi-sexual because as I'm working they either get "You BI**H" or "You SON OF A B***H" with a "mother f****r" thrown in here or there for good measure. (These are normally associated with skin and blood being left on some portion or a bolt welded with rust and unmoving).
SHE........ guys aren't this much trouble.
Back in the day guys used to hang coconuts on the back of their model T's with a sign that said "you can't call me Lizzie now."
it's a he, i've never had that car wake up and say "huh, i don't wanna be YOUR car anymore".......happens sometimes with females. his name? EL CABALLO LOCO!!!!
93 Surburban - Sir Burb / male
99 Sonoma - General / male
01 Camery - Batmobile / movie car
54 F100 - Miss Fortune / female
62 Falcon - Jalopy / ??????
Mine's a she of course ... "Victoria" .. Ford decided that for me when "she" was born ...
a big fat fucking bitch who thinks she knows everything. wait a minute, are we talking about cars?
Mine's a ho, I mean girl..............
Her name is Lucille.
Guys I hate to say it but, "If it has Tits or Wheels its gonna cause you trouble" Thats the way i see it....
Her name is Miss Behavin'. She's almost ready to crush the ricers and donks around where I live.
For all the reasons above mine are she,mike bike is called miss lead,unfortunatelly there was a car in a magazine called the same,pissed me off but oh well,he's in for a ride if my miss lead is any indication,but my rides earn their names based on all kinds of shit.
Not sure...havent had it long enough. What do you guys think? How bout a name?
Miss Fortune. Like the name of my car, it's a name from a WWII bomber. Plus, it sounds like the name a hot rod should have.
Yea, I vote Miss Fortune.
My '56 Ford F350 tow truck is Captain Hook. My '31 Ford is Mr. Grumpy. I bet I could come up with a name for you, too, but you won't like it. Ha!
I guess I will have to put it up on the lift and look.
How about "Indecision" or maybe something more obscure, like "Neopolitan"
Looks a bit "Dodgey", Also kinda "Frumpy" looking.
PM me and I'll tell you where that name came from.
If mine was an Automatic ,it was a she ..4,, speed's are always a he...
