What is the nickname for your car?
« on: October 13, 2020, 02:23:02 PM »
I have decided to call my red Hertz "Dorian Gray" due to the painting I commissioned on 6s843.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Steve McDonald Formally known as Mcdonas

My kids and a niece call mine the “Rustang”
Must have been the winter driving and two trips to the Bonneville Salt Flat that caused that name
Owned since 1971, now driven over 240,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

My buddy bought a 68 GT350.  He asked if I thought Sally was a good name for the car.  My response is below.  It is not politically correct and not meant to offend anyone, but he thought it was hilarious.

"The Mistress"  My wife's idea after the three years I spent restoring it in the late 80's.  And yes, we are still happily married.

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

Dot-Com

This is my late father-in-law’s Mustang that he bought in 79, and we restored about 10 years ago. He could never understand what dot-com stood for because he would hear it on radio commercials. So that’s what we named his car🏁

Yup, that my 67's name also, or I say the GT350. People give me that blank look, like what is it? Thats the problem with my Ford GT, I call it the GT and they think its a 95 Mustang GT or something like that.

especially back when the kids were small we always had nicknames for the D.D.s - and have sort of carried on with that - but the Tiger was known simply as "the Green Car" (we've had a LOT of white vehicles over the years).
... now it is just "the Tiger".
I do sometimes refer to it as "my little green car" when talking with enthusiasts of "other brands"  ??? ::) to try to avoid sounding like I'm bragging  ;D
