Name Your Car Day

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

emoticon Name Your Car Day emoticon

When : Always October 2

Name Your Car Day is today. Does your car have a name? Lots of people name their cars. People with big boats, name their boat, and we think nothing of it. So, why not name your car or truck!?

Every car has character and personality. We spend a lot of time in our cars, and caring for them. So, its only fitting that each car gets its own name.

Selecting a name should be made with care and consideration. Give your car a name that properly reflects its character. What you name you car should be a proper reflection of its character and performance, and your desires for your car. In general, guys names are for guys' cars, and girl names are for the cars that you ladies drive. Aside from that, selection of a name is wide open. But, be have feelings, too.

Here are some of our thoughts in selecting an appropriate name for your car:

Don't select wimpy names. That might give your car a personality complex and it will perform accordingly.
Do give a strong, aggressive name to sports cars and cars with powerful engines.
Sleek, sexy feline-like cars savor names that begin with "lady".
Old junkers are proud just to be around. You can call them just about anything. Try "Tramp", or "Old Yeller", "Old Blue".
Pick names to reflect your personality.
"Pickemup" trucks must have country names.
Don't give common names (like Joe, Mike or Sue) to luxury cars. They beam over names like Reginald, Archibald, and Crystal.

    Cute post.

As lar back as I can remember, my dad always called his vehcles "Betsy" regardless of it being a car, van, station wagon, or whatever.

I never named my vehicles, and now I don't drive anymore so nothing to name.

    My present car, a Buick LaCrosse, is named "Vito".
Years ago, when I was a freshman in college, (1971)my dad bought me a 1962 Buick LeSabre!! Cherry!
Two tone metallic green with blowholes, a 454, straight eight, glass packs, .. I actually OUTRAN A STATE POLICE CAR!! On the expressway.
I called him , aptly, "Flash" as in Flash Gordon.. emoticon emoticon

My dad was a sheriff, but I still had to hide the car in the yard for a month so the state bulls would forget it,, they could not get close enough to get my plate number, thank goodness!! Nobody here ever found out what I did..
Wasn't I a stinker???

  I've always given my cars feminine names. Then I met a woman who had given her minivan a masculine name (Ivan). I was astonished at the (to me) novelty.

    My car has always been :Nellie" as in "Whoa Nellie"! My first car was a 1963 ford falcon, which my boyfriend said looked like a hot dog, and was then called the "hot dog"! I loved that car!

    Some cars beg for names. Other cars are so bland that they defy being named. What an interesting day. I had an 1961 Ford Falcon Ranchero once. The car was baby blue with a 144 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder engine and a 3-speed on the tree. These old Falcons were slow. My brother borrowed the Falcon. Before he drove off, I told him to be careful because the car was no rocket. After that the car was called "The Rocket"!

Thanks for a great post.
