Mine was a white 1997 VW Golf. Husband came up with the name Tootencarmen. We currently have a 2001 Skoda Fabia called Vroomhilda. I don’t know how he comes up with these names!

Skoda might be facing retirement before too long as we’re planning a baby at some point (need to shift some weight first) but we’ll see how the MOT goes next month, if we need a new car we have our eye on a Suzuki SX4. We’d probably call it Susie or something similar.

theatrejulia:  Relax? You’ve had your identity stolen, you should know better than anyone that posting answers to security questions on a public, searchable forum is idiotic. Anyway it’s not like my posts are just for you

theatrejulia:  my first car was a white.  Very old. Very square Ford Fiesta. He was called Chad after my favorite drummer Chad Smith from the RHCP. That car was awesome.

theatrejulia:  For the love of Christ why do you think my posts are solely for you, like yeah you started the thread but there are 5 pages of people who probably didn’t think twice about innocently answering a question, and I feel obligated to protect them. It is my professional opinion, as someone who has years and years of experience in exactly this, that this isn’t information you (general YOU, not just *you*) should be sharing as it is a very common security question. Sorry not sorry, I’d rather be a debbie downer than someone at risk of identity theft

A hand-me-down CAR from my mom, unloving named “The Deathtrap.” (Brake lines snapped, locks would freeze closed, the INSIDE of the windows would freeze, the trunk leaked so the back floorboards would floood during rains). LOL I have come so far.

Well fak. I edited my post bc, as MinnieGrace pointed out, maybe it’s not the smartest to post the deets.

I had a VW Jetta. No idea what year. Old. Very very decrepit. But I loved it. It had all the symptoms of old age plus the symptoms of my neglect. (missing lights etc.)

When I was 16 I went to Europe on exchange so I never got around to getting my driver’s license (only had my learners permit) Well, when I got back I just didn’t really think to get my license. At some point my brother went into the military and gave me the Jetta. And I drove it. To work. To my Prom. and yes, eventually I drove myself (alone) in that beautiful car to the Transportation Department to finally get my license. 😂 So lucky nobody noticed. 

Damn. That car was awesome.

(here in the right color and everything. *sigh*)
