    I usually just call mine "the 36", but when it comes time for a little striping (at some time way off in the distance at this point), I'm gonna have "Tabulae Rasae" lettered on the rear panel somewhere.

    That's Latin for "Blank Slate", 'cause I'm pretty much starting from scratch on it. ;)

    he ment his mothers name like the Enola Gay I am sure.

    There was only one car that had a name growing up, and it really fit. Late friend of mine had a 40 Ford Coupe, with a large displacement Pontiac in it, with a commercial rad and no fan, hard to believe.
    It was called "Famous"

    You have to remember to, back in the old days, car shows that people went to in those local arenas in the 70's everyone had their handmade signs with car descriptions and stuff. He never went to those but the name fit.

    I personally cant call cars names. I referred to my 1939 Chevy as the 39, my 32 Ute is either the Deuce or the Ute. My mom did name my 33 Chevy 3 window as Herman (after Herman Munster) Stock height square head. Hey she played the plate number on my 39 and won money so dont laugh lol.

    I though britany would have larger headlights though....
     
  19. my topolino was referred to as "my Lil Beast" by a Hamber a few times....so i figured i'ld keep it....Lil Beast.......think it fits... and also figure the guy who called it that, well he's been around a few topo's in his time, and he's been a great help in getting mine back together.....thanks big guy............

    My 7 year old has nicknamed our 32 sedan project RUSTY. It has a small amount of rust in the wheel wells and thats it. I guess to a 7 year old it looks pretty bad.

    our 69 vette is "jaylow" (has a monster bootie)
    our 48 anglia gasser is " angie" (the evil older sister)

    me thinks we have too many cars...
     
  26. My wife names both of our cars, the 79 ford f250 she named "Myi Truck" which gets confusing when I refer to her by name . . .
    Our current project is named "Vicky"
