I call my ride "MAVERICK" unlike my handle which is a derivative of the same word but without an "e". Its been named as a ride which has great independence in action and thought and ofcourse its named as am a die hard fan of NBA team "Dallas Mavericks"

Infact i have it inscribed on the front wind shield

Default weird chap

I think I may be the odd man out here.

The only time I name a car is when she breaks down and I'm resisting kicking the crap out of her.

I call my Santro 'The Green Goblin'

She is green with green underbody neons, strobe lights & a sweet sounding exhaust. The name was suggested by fellow bhpian Nitroxx and was agreed by other mumbai members too as she has managed to gain the respect in the team and liked by all.

I've christened my Safari - The Truck. Its definitely a male and the name has a macho touch to it.
I've never bothered to name either my Zen or Pulsar anything other than Zen and Pulsar. I guess its the time I spent on TBHP that got me to name my ride The Truck .
Bugs.

Smile What is your car’s names and “why”?

Does your car have a name – a personal name, not the brand name?
If yes (and also if you would like to share that name) what is that name.

And most importantly why did you choose that name for your car.

I am starting this thread because my car has a very “sweet” name, but I’ll share my cars name later only after I get some responses.

Thanks
