RTZ. My mum wanted to call it Ritz, but at the end of the day its still a Fiat Punto.

RTZ doesn't even have an airport/airline code to ally it to!

My indigo blue '02 GMC Yukon is known 'round here as "The Blue Beast" or simply, "The Beast." My work ride is a '06 Ford Crown Vic, named "The Blue Bomber," though the department dumped the blue paint job five years ago.

My car is called "the car".

Pretty obvious, if you think about it.

My car, a Nissan Sentra, is known as the Go-Kart. It got that name because a family member, who drives a F-150, got in it for the first time and said, "Man, it feels like I'm in a go-kart". Plus, most days, I drive it like a go-kart!

Pratmobile, Shitmobile or Brown Volvo for one of them....

My main car is just "Blue Volvo" or "The tank" after an episode with a deer..... see my profile for pic of her in front of Concorde.

As Banco says, I also sometimes refer to it as "That f**king heap of shit" when I'm annoyed............ I need to sell it later this summer as I'm off to Australia for 6 months........ Anyone interested.........?

123000, 1993 K, Volvo 440 1.6 Li, Lots of Service History, Well looked after (I worked at the garage I bought it at), well maintained, EW, CL, MOT Dec 06, will have tax to June 07, new tyres put on a month ago.

(By the way, yes I can see the irony of slagging it off then asking if someone wants to buy it...... I was only semi-serious)

My state-issued plate has the letters "ENT" at the front, so my green Taurus has been called "Treebeard" or just "The Ent". I don't call it that, though. I just call it "My/the car". For a change of pace, I'll say, "My/the Taurus".  Smile

Personally, I think naming a car is kind of weird, so I avoid that. I thought it was a rather niche thing to do, but youse are disproving that notion quite fast, lol.
