Re: Does your car have a name? and is it a girl or a boy?

All my cars have had names; some of them I can even still remember. Sadly not all can be revealed on a family forum.

Renault made a big thing of this with the promotion for the 5 (remember the 'What's Yours Called?' ads of the late '80s?). I bought one for the wife, & he quickly became known as Arfur, ('cos he was only arf' as big as the company Granada I was driving at the time).

Before that was Patrick, the green Hillman Avenger, which is a double entendre (work it out).

Then came the black Ka, shortly to be sold/scrapped, which I named after Guy Gibson's dog, but then couldn't refer to in public in case it caused anyone any offense.

The Granada got replaced by a little Suzuki Van (cloned Bedford Rascal) called Baldrick (as it was part of my cunning plan to retire early). That lasted over 20 years & finally ended up being traded as scrappage against a 500 last March.

The 500 quickly got a second set of wheels (shoes?) & so I decided it must be a girl. Once I'd waxed it it reminded me of the red lippy from those Maybelline ads & that name seems to have stuck.

The Panda I bought the other week (for herself) was named Pearl just yesterday (her idea - which is at least better than having yet another Snowdrop on the forum). You can probably guess what colour that one is.
