Hi guys,

Just a thought ... Considering the profound relationships team-bhpians profess to have with their machines, it seems to be a logical conclusion that at least some would have christened their wheels ....

as for me ... my zen is called Halo ... inspired by the cute halogen fog lights i'd installed to combat delhi fog .. (rendered completely useless on moving to mumbai !) ..

the new ikon .. well .. still thinking what to call her ...

so am i the only nutcase who has a name for the ride ?

.......

I have been thinking of naming my zen for a long time now but cant find one thats appropriate. Can anyone suggest one?The car is golden brownish in color. How about Desert Eagle (inspired by Bullet Tooth Tony from the movie Snatch) ?

This is what Addy calls my car and I agree with him ...
Scuderia Jag LeMans Santro with Tubi Exhaust

Scuderia - Coz I love Ferraris
Jag - Coz My car is green
Tubi Exhaust - Coz my silencer has broken so it gives kinda that sort of sound which I really love.

Cos in Maharashtra the most of the Shiv Sena cars have a tiger sticker on them. And "Jai Maharsahtra" is like "Good Morning/Good Evening/Good Night" for them. Anyways lets not get into politics.

Back to the topic.....hmmm....a name for my car * .... i havent kept one. Since Toyota gave birth to the Qualis, i wudnt wanna change its name and take away the Qualis' birth-right *

Though I never really thought of giving my Contessa a name, I sometimes refer to her as "rusted heap". Some people I know, call her "Flying Rani".

My white Zen is called Evo Z short for Evolution Z short for Evolution Zen in a logical sequence of the Lancer Evo VIII, IX, X and then Z !

Kawasakinetic Ninja is my black Kinetic Marvel...

Haven't found a name along the same lines for my silver CBZ yet..!
