What do you name your ride?

Just curious what everyone name's their ride?

My Track car I named Sphinx, because the car is a giant riddle that can never be solved completely...

Pamela. Because her awesome handling and braking have saved my life a few times from idiotic drivers. Just like she does on Baywatch.

The '11 335d is Gretta, the '03 325i is Gretchen.

Had to go w/ some strong, German-sounding female names to represent the 3-series' mild manners, until you piss them off!

I think it's a sign of serious psychological problems when you give a name to a car. It's ok for animals but for cars no.

The same thing I've named all my cars:


Car


Sorry, although I have nothing against people naming their cars, I'm not stealing 50 cars in one night to give my car a catchy female's name. Although my GPS' name is Stacey

OK, so how do you distinguish the GPS from the car? The talking is the voice. Let's see what else we've used when the car's had issues? The headlights are her eyes. Tyres are shoes. Wheels are her feet.

Oh, BTW ours is Thelma. And if you ask, we'll tell the story!

I named mine Heidi and the seat belt assist I named Jeeves. Jeeves can be a handful sometimes... he doesn't always hand me the belt like he should.
