    Mines called cedrick the clio

    previous cars were named (in order of owned)
    - Clio 1.2 billabong: The Aussi
    - Lexus IS200:Toms (only because she was tuned, and tom spec'ed)
    - Suzki Swift Sport: Mario (as in mario kart because the way it was abused)
    - Astra VXR: Wagon! - Also nicknamed "friday afternoon job"

    The Filthy Rocket.
    Sometimes I describe it as a French tin bucket aswel.

    I never named any of the other cars i've owned as they didn't have a personality like the Clio.

    I named a nova I had Da Kid, as the reg was D--- KYD, I've not named any others as I didn't get attached. I've always thought of my Clio as Nicole as well due to the old adverts for the Clio, papa?....Nicole?!

    Mk1 1.2 clio, Dave, because everyones got a mate called dave...
    Mk2ph1 1.6Rsi clio, Big dave, after its predecessor.
    BG 182. John (regis) Because its short, black and goes fast round bends!!

    I can't bear cars with names. Makes my skin crawl, ever since a boss I didn't like called her 1.2 Fiesta "Speedy". She was so pathetic.

    It's a car, not a pet.

    Each to their own I suppose. My folks always named their cars, so I did with mine (apart from a focus that was just a stop gap) and my sister does too!! The names got to have a link to the car though. a 1.2 fiesta couldnt be called speedy!!

    I couldn't agree more.

    It's almost as bad as people who refer to their car as "she" and "her".

    Urrrgh.

    Did name my old van, It was a faded red Peugeot Partner with about 300k on it.
    I owned it from 17 and drive to 6th form in it at the time, few people made postman pat comments so I named her Patricia.
    Loved Patricia...then I killed her :confused:

    I'm driving a shitty white Daewoo Matiz here in Korea so I had to call it.... Fridge Freezer!
    I'm not normally one for naming cars though my mates in college called my first car, "Crotch Rocket" because I was the first person to pass my test in my year so all the birds wanted a lift even if my car was shite!

    No, he said what you call your car not your... Oh, nevermind.

    I leave naming the car to the other half. So I've had Big Ern' (A Sierra) and Little Ern' (A Fiesta ZS) and now the 182 is just known as SB (Silver Bullet). While I go along with it and call it SB I make a point on not giving it a gender.

    Mines called Chloe, my ex gf didn't like it cause her best mate is called Chloe and didn't like the thought of me driving her. (she was fit tbf)
    When I had my Peugeot Speedfight I called that Alice. No idea why but it suited it.
