    I'm on my 4th car and have never named any car I've had. I tend not to keep them long enough to feel it's fair to name them... makes it harder to get rid of them then... Like a pet dog :lol:
    Hoping to get car number 5 before Christmas! :D

    not gonna name that either :p

    :lol: kinda... that and trying to pull myself out of the red at the moment! :-? :-(
    I have a big car with big car insurance price on it... so looking for something smaller and cheaper to run...

    If I *was* to name my present car I'd call it "Amplo", which is big in Portuguese! :lol:
  8. My car is a Peugot 206 called Clive and my friend has a Micra called Hattie. I think the names Hattie and Clive go quite well together when we're out on the road!

    My car has a mans name coz its diesel and it sounds manly when you start it up, not quiet and serene like most petrol cars. :D

    I've named most of my cars apart from the nasty piece of Far Eastern trash that's been trying to kill me for the last 12 months.

    A Reliant Regal called L'Escargot
    A pair of violently coloured Citroen GSs called The Yellow Peril and The Mean Green Machine
    An Austin Maxi called Jemima
    A Fiat 127 called The Flea
    A Lada Riva called Babushcar
    A Citroen 2CV called Cynthia
    A little old pastel metallic green Fiesta called Fernando
    And now my lovely Volvo is called Helga...

    I am very sad and am having therapy.

    My first car was a red Fiesta "Harrier" - I suppose it was a special edition so named it Harrier / Harriet.

    My second car was a Peugeot 306 Diesel - so we called him Percy.

    Our current car - ummmmm - can't really recall what we call it!

    A friend of ours drive a car that is shaped like a box - so we call it "the box on wheels" - we haven't told him yet though!!!

    my mum has a very sad obsession with trevor brooking (some random footie player) so every car she has is called trevor.
    except we had a little old mini with really bad suspension that we called tigger and a seat alhambra that we called jumbo ...

    my dad doesnt name his cars (i think he thinks its too childish or something)

    My first car was a 1980 Datsun Cherry.

    It was named "Illegitimate Child" the Datsun.

    It just rolled off the tongue one day, and just stuck.

    I just tend to call them "S**** Metal" after a few months...

    edit: I think the bleeper's being a bit over the top there lads!

    Kepps: edit - I think you could be right Lynchie - will investigate...

    Haven't named my car as such but certainly called some of my cars names in the past!! (probably due to my Italian car obsession - they have a habit of breaking down frequently and expensively)

    Although my first car (an orange VW Beetle born in the same year as me) went by the name of "Betsy":-?

    Mines called " the sewing machine" because thats what it sounds like. Its only a little old metro but it goes and its mine so I dont care when the local School kids laugh when it grounds on the speed bumps outside the school! :)

    Only had my new car for a week when someone drove into the side of it :x So i've not named it, it could be a written off so I would be a bit sad to say that it might be going to car heaven without a name:(
