The Cock Pit?
Now that's some funny sh*t right there.
I came up with a great one for my '33 Plymouth, but I can't tell you, its a secret.
I've always ended up calling my cars "piece of shit"
4 door road whore
Or Dave. It looks like a Dave.
This!!! Like a couple others, i'm not into naming the cars, even if they are an important member of the family.
If asked what I'm driving, its either "the '27" or the "Roadster" for my '27 roadster. Or I'm taking the fiddy one ('51 Chevy). I use to say i'm taking the Ford, but that got confusing since we have a Fusion & an Escape as daily drivers...that didn't work out so well.
It looks like a Pam to me
A buddy of mine had one (46 Plymouth) and we just called it the "Rock" as in Plymouth Rock. He would say " let's jump in the Rock and cruise".
My 49 Plymouth got named the Black Pearl (not by me) because of the hood ornament and.. well... it's black... mostly
Never name a car, let others call it something all they want. name it and the real trouble begins.
I tend to find them lurking around in my head somewhere. Lots of shadows in there with different names lurking around. When they see me building something, one of them kind of steps to the front.
What's with people nameing thier cars, I just call mine the " Hot Rod " and everyone seems to know which car I'm talking about when I say it. Call it what it is. Name your kids and your dog.
I think using your avatar name would be cool. Driving a car named"spanish Fly" should get you plenty of looks.
Separate names with a comma.
