I call my Jeep "Mine"
Gold Digger.That's what it was called when I got it.Seems appropriate.If it had hands they would be in my pocket.

THe fed is the Sr dragster of course ,but the 63 Dodge to your left is called Milli cause it was built as a millienium project on 2000.
The V10 truck order number --0001 is called Bertha cause what else would you call a big ol truck with 488 cubes of power.
an the Pt cruiser turbo Gt is called Petee. of course.
And the altered with a jeep grill and mimicked body is called THE HEEP for Hemi-Jeep.
My car's first name is the same as Smokey The Bear's middle name. We call it "The Car."
I call mine WHATZIT, alot of people have asked me what is it?
Sherman.It´s a truck and drives lika tank.
I have a 63 Dodge that we call the old Dodge,a 57 chev that we call the 57, we call our drivers by what they are, BUT I have a canary yellow 79 chev 1 ton 4x4 with a 454 that we do refer to as 'ol yeller'
I know what I call my everyday driver but I don't think you really want to hear it!!!!!!
All my cars/trucks end up black so the '36 Ford 3/W will be some shade of black yet to be determined and called "Tar Baby" ................
Mine has been call all kinds of bad names during the build so now I call it, My lil "A"ttitude
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.
I've always named my cars and bikes....
1931 sedan..... Maynard
1932 roadster Elroy
1950 chevy Millie
1941 cadillac Ruby Mae
2007 JeepSRT8 Hoss
2006 BMW1200RT Otto
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....
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............
This one's called "Mini Merc" a 3/4 scale 51
More info here:
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.

Goddam worthless rusty piece of shit. Kinda catchy, isnt it?
