Hi bees! Long time no see! I never thought I would be one of the bees that dropped off after marriage, but it seems I kind of am! Super sporadic. I *have* been reading more often than I post though. 🙂
Anyways, I posted/participated in posts about what kind of new vehicle to get, etc. AND yesterday DH and I finally found the *perfect* one! 🙂 I say “new” because it’s technically “used” with 4,500 miles on it. But seriously? It’s pretty darn new. Lol.
I got a 2012 Hyundai Sonata. It’s sooo pretty and roomy and I just adore it. Plus we got an excellent deal on my trade – way more than we ever thought they’d offer us for it, considering poor Zippy (old car) had 133,000 miles on her and was a 2004. Lol.
I took a cheesy picture of my old love and my new love together. 🙂
My new car is basically the grown up (four-door and bigger) version of my old car. haha. I didn’t even notice until we had them parked next to eachother.
So what should I name her? I’m big into naming cars and just want some fresh ideas and to share. My old car was named Zippy because she had some serious “get up and go” due to her V6 and my lead foot. My new car has a 4 cylinder but it’s turbocharged (Weeee!) I’m such a guy at heart.
Without further ado……..

Nancy Sonata (like Nancy Sinatra) or Frank Sonata (if you wanted it to be a male)!
My sister’s car is a Toyota Celica and it’s name is Tom Celica. My Toyota Yaris is Emmylou Yaris. Hehe!

Frank Sonata!!! I love that. I was going to say Bond. Your car reminds me of a classy tux, so James Bond.

I like Frank Sonata. Haha.
Glad to see you around!!

@RyantheGirl: That is so cute and creative! Love it.
@MrsFuzzyFace: I totally see the tux thing, now that you mention it. I suppose we could do a little gender rearranging. 😉 I suppose “she” doesn’t have to be a “she.” Lol

My old Rover Metro was called Ricky Marvin (God rest his rusty soul…..) I remember once circling a bunch of boy racers in the local park playing You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate on full volume… possibly the only time I was ever remotely cool…. or maybe not.
What about Harriet Stott?

The new one is the black one?

@RyantheGirl: I didn’t know anyone else still had a Celica! haha. Although mine is now back at my parents’.
I really like the Sinatra play on the name!

@AmeliaBedelia: I love Sonatas! (And Elantras, which are similarly styled and more in my price range – that’s what I’m thinking I might get in a couple years!) Maybe a name that plays off the swoopy sleak styling? ‘Swoopy”? “Slither?” Or something related to beauty… OK, clearly I’m terrible at car names. Oh well – enjoy your new lovely!

Welcome back and congratulations on the new car! I don’t have any name suggestions, but Frank Sonata is pretty funny.

another vote for frank or nancy sonata; it’s way too cute to pass up.
The only girls I know who name their cars just add a -y at the end – Nissan Cube became Cuby, a coworker’s car is Colby (can’t remember the make/model). Kind of boring and mine would sound stupid if I did that because I have a Yaris.

Oh man! I’m terrible at naming vehicles. I had my last car (Hyundai Tiburon) for 5 years and she never had a name. I traded her in 4 months ago for a Hyundai Tuscon and it’s still unamed. I’m sticking around to see what people come up with and what you decide.
PS, here’s my car if anyone has any ideas for me 🙂
