Re: Baby names What have you named your R? (CM2RAS)
Lol, nice idea for a thread as well! I've never named any of my cars, though they have all at one point or another acquired names. My Dad named my '85 245 "Wolly" for Wolly the Wolvo, I guess, I dunno....apparently one of us kids couldn't pronounce Volvo lol. Then the '95 940 was named Sven, after several nights of cursing and yelling at the car when it required waaay too much time and parts removal IOT perform simple maintenance. Something to the effect of, "Gaddammit!! You know, there's a Swedish engineer named Sven the Svede laughing his arse off thinking about the poor bastards who are working on this *%&^'ing car!!" ....something like that, lol.
My current R was named Rebecca by a friend of mine. I dunno, we were all going to lunch, and she pointed to my car and asked if we could ride in Rebecca instead of her mom-mobile. .....and the name stuck I guess!!
