After thinking about this for about three seconds, and since "car name" threads never, ever die, I actually HAVE named every single car and truck I've ever owned...
As in "C'mon, Bitch, start already!", or "Let go of the that damn bolt, Bitch!"...
So, yeah, "Bitch".

Spooky for my '60 F-100 in my Avatar. Everyone says it gives off a weird vibe and it's been nothing but mechanical trouble since I've owned it.
