Car names

This is my beloved car. I've never loved a car like I love this car. It makes me feel super cool. I feel like I'm noticed when I drive this baby down the street. Some people know me not by name but by my car. I've even met and made friends because of this car.

My car has a name - all of my cars have had names. I call this car the Juicy Mobile.
I even contemplated getting vanity plates that said "Juicy" but decided against it. Getting back to car names.................I'd be interested to see how many of you name your vehicles. Please let me know.

Names of cars past include: The White Cloud (a 1960 Chevy Impala)
The Bug
The Brown Log
The Green Weenie (or at least that's what I called it) Yes, I know this picture shows a silver car but ours was green. And really rad for it's day. That's back when Nissan went by the name Datsun.
 My first car, was a Toyota Celica which I called my Maroon Marauder. It survived the beginning years of me driving, my years in college and a bit after that. It was a great little car and ran like a top. I had a foot shaped chrome gas pedal in it which made me super cool. I was sad to see it go because it was my first. And you know that you never forget your first.
My second car was a hand me down from my hubby which I called the Turd Mobile (he was really offended at that name by the way. But hey, it was brown and shaped like...well, you know what I'm getting at.) It had every bell and whistle known to man and was very nice. But it looked like a.....oops, there I go again.

One of the last notable cars I had was the White Whale or Willie. I like to roll down the road yelling "FREE WILLIE". My kids got a kick out of that. For being such a tank, it was a really nice ride. I drove around 12 people all at one time in it once. I was sad when I sold it, too. I wanted to make sure it went to a nice loving home. I happen to know it's happily living out it's existence as a family car because I've seen it a couple of times since it sold. I saw it on the interstate once and I actually waved at it! I'm sure the people inside thought I was crazy - waving and smiling, etc.. I wasn't waving at the people, I was waving at Willie!

I don't plan on ever getting rid of the juicy mobile. It's such a collectors item that when I'm through with it, I'll save it until one day it will be worth a million dollars.

So please let me know dear readers, did your cars have names? What were they?
