I do. πŸ™‚

My car is a Silver 2004 Toyota Solara…I named her Zippy…because I have a lead foot and she has a V-6. I got 2 speeding tickets with her. Embarassed Lol. I’m about to get something new and I’m kind of sad to see her go. πŸ™

ETA: My Mom’s Suburban is called BATTY. Why? Mom says “Because it’s a Big Ass Truck…BAT…Batty.” Lol.

I drive a gray 2002 Beetle, and her name is Betty.  Everyone knows about her name, and friends will ask “So how’s Betty doing?” all the time!  I picked it because it has a ring to it – Betty the Beetle – and because I tend towards more old-fashioned names often (I don’t know any Betty’s my age)

@NowDontLetsBeSilly: Hehe, when I was growing up, our old station wagon’s name was Bessy, and then the Chevette that followed was Bessette πŸ™‚  B names are just very fitting for cars for some reason!

I do!  My car’s name is Binks.  It has to do with the letters on my license plate, plus it just sounds cute (she’s cute).  πŸ™‚

FI’s van is named Barney (it used to be his Oma’s and she named it but rarely drove it).  So, Binky and Barney hang out together in the driveway!  Haha.

I have a Toyota Matrix and I named her Matilda. Before that, I had a Mercury Tracer I named Trixie and a Volkswagen Jetta named Greta. I name everything though. My last laptop was named Noah (like from the Notebook because it was a notebook PC) and my current laptop is named Harry Potter because it’s an HP.

@BrianneG: I named my last HP laptop Harry Potter also!  I got a new one, and it’s name is Herbert Pierce. 

I name everything also.  I named my bf’s BMW Bartholomew because it contains the letters b, m, and w.  I named an owl necklace Owl-fred.  My old fish was Gilbert Milton Jefferson III (there were no I and II).  And my teddy bear is Harold Monroe.  I don’t know why cars don’t get last names, it seems everything else does.

Haha, my little bro and I had a near-fight when I got a car that was to be his for a while (he was in an accident with mine, but not his fault), so I named it while I had it.

When he finally got it, he wanted to rename it. We agreed to disagree, so we each refer to it with different names and the whole family knows what car we’re talking about. LOL.

heck yes! 

My very first car was a 1998 Hyundai Accent (white) and I named her Shelby because she kind of looked like an egg … egg shell … Shelby …

I now have a 2006 Chevy Aveno (bright blue) named Tobey. Love him!

I also convinced my fiance to name his silver Equinox Geno after Evegeni “Geno” Malkin who plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins. lol

My friend in college named her car Binky. We all called it Binky. In fact, when we were trying to decide which car to take I would say, ‘do you want to take my car or Binky?’
