Default Name your ride.

I have owned 2 cars till now, 2 bikes and a moped and 4 bicycles till now (some sold). But with vehicles I treat them special and also name them. It gives me joy to know it and call it by name. I wanted to share the same with you all. So you can let us know what you would name your vehicles as


SAINT - OHC Vtec 1.5 (2005-till date) - This vehicle has given me peace and i love to drive it alone and to different places, I can rely on him very much

LOVER - Suzuki Fiero (2002-till date) - It was brought on the birthday of my first lover. So

MENDER - Pinnochio Mach type Race Bicycle (2008) - It my newly acquired possession. I am yet to write a post on this fantastic looking vehicle. Think of me as a fat pencil and use a mender/sharpner on it.


RASCAL - Maruti 800 type 1 1994 model (2001 - 2005) - Rascal because of the troubles it gave me, but i have troubled him a lot too. it was my first car. Now he is sold and gone

RAMBO - Suzuki Samurai (1999 - 2002) - WOW this was some bike to remember, the offroading myself and my friend vinay (who is now in dubai) have done on this is worth remembering. its used be all night long journey on the highways of karnataka. It would push to limits and never break or squeek. It was hard to part with this guy.

Well, my first bike was a Suzuki Samurai and I had "Terminator" sticker work on it.

Currently, own Matiz and NHC.

Haven't really thought about the names for them ... but the way I have driven both these cars so far, I would name my Matiz as HighWay Star ... I have done about 114K kms so far ...

and NHC ... I am treating it like a kiddo ... am being very gentle and caring ... for now ...

Note from the Team-BHP Support : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.

my best friend in the us, quraish, has named his merc "Basanti" ... I've not decided on a name for the Viva or the Logan. But in our family we have never bought a car that says its your or my car, both are family cars. I'd like to get myself a Black Maserati GranTurismo someday & call it "The Godfather"

I have named my Silky Silver Swift as "Silver Star" , Based on the exotic flower found high in the mountains of Switzerland.

I talk to her "only" when I driving alone, else everyone thinks I am mad
