'Pet' names for our Doblos?

Inspired by Techno-PC's recent post......

"I am taking the "ugly bugger" in for her first service"

I thought I'd see what other names we have given to our cherished Doblos.

Ours is sometimes called 'Dobbin' but more commonly 'the Pope mobile'.

Love to hear your names.....

Re: 'Pet' names for our Doblos?

we call ours "Dobby"

but I sometimes sing along to Hawkwind in the car and replace the word 'silver' for 'orange'

Re: 'Pet' names for our Doblos?

We tend to refer to ours as 'dobby'. However the lads at work have labelled it 'the sunshine bus' and 'the fishtank'
I wanted an 07 reg one so we could call it James Bond (doblo7 if anyone hasn't got it)

Re: 'Pet' names for our Doblos?

Rather sadly I called mine Debbie last weekend in a vague hope to appeal to the God of motoring and let me make it to my destination. (Driving nearly 200miles with exhaust snapped just behind the cat and held together with silencer bandage!)

She made it there and back before I had to do a better repair. Hoping to take it to Longlife exhausts next week... can only be cheaper than Kwik Fit!

Re: 'Pet' names for our Doblos?

Thanks for all your names. They are generally more affectionate than I thought! The winner has to be Doblo7 James Bond.

We way we refer to our Doblos probably says as much about us than it does about the cars. I get the feeling we are a pretty hard-working and friendly if mature bunch.

Compare our responses to this thread to this similar one https://www.fiatforum.com/leisure-lo...names-car.html
which seems to be by somewhat younger Punto owners........
