Naming a vehicle

Okay so in Stephen King did it, does any one else do it.
My friend and I in Highschool named a car we used to roll around in "The Shaggin Wagon" It was an 85 Chrystler Reliant wagon. We dogged the hell out of it. IT lasted a good while then one day it finally gave out. Well the tradition kinda stuck it was bad luck or karma or whatever to ride in or own a vehilce without naming it.

So does anyone here have names for their vehicles????

I had a friend whose first car was a purplish minivan that his mom gave him when he turned 16. Named that bitch the periwinkle princess.

I have never officially named a vehicle. I am very sentimental about my rides though and sometimes refer to them with nicknames...

My 83 Firebird - Bird of Prey
Titanium ZX6R - Silver Bullet
My old 69 Nova - "The Hulk" (it was green and had a big block 454 engine)
OUr Trailblazer EXT - APC (armored personnel carrier) or "Huey" after the Vietnam era helicopter

Others my family has owned get referred to by their color, Ole Blue, Little Brownie, greenie, ect.
