I named mine Raisin Bran...cause its got 2 scoops.
I named it Winkie! My wife calls it Scoot-Scoot.
The Magic Pumpkin...
The drummer in my band gave it this name and it just stuck.
Vlasic - Because it’s green like a pickle and a classic!
Sometimes when I'm working on it I call it a bunch of names...
Patches...name came from people here on the board...
the number one reason I'm reluctant to paint it one color...
Never named any of my vehicles. Just call the Maverick "The Maverick"
Same for me, just never got into the naming cars deal. I do call it a turd if that counts!
When my car was on Power Tour East in 1999, it dropped a lifter. I decided not to mess with it until I got it home a couple days later. It seemed happy enough, driving along, ticking away.
At that point, I thought it should be called "Timex" ..... takes a licking, and keeps on ticking.
When we pulled it apart to take a look, there were two more lifters trying to die. Seems the 7000 rpm springs I put on it were a bit much for the factory lifters. Aftermarket lifters went in, and all was well again.
How many Comets and/or Mavericks did you see on YOUR HRPT in 99 ? I've made nine Tours so far .. and I met only a few on the runs . A lot of participants and spectators invariably asked .." What YEAR is it ? " .. That's usually a question people ask when they have No Idea what BRAND the cars are .. When I'm asked I just tell them the year and wait for the NEXT question .. : ) .. Still Lots of Fun on these Tours ..
How many Comets or Mavericks did I meet on Power Tour?
In three tours (99, 00, and 01) , I met you and another CAMEO member ... that's it!
