    For me, the Wife’s car is York (as in Your Car)
    My car is Mike (as in My Car)

    However to the wife, my Car is York and her car is Mike… you following?

    Also when I bought my toy, I vowed I would not give it a name, however the previous owner had already called it Charlotte and it stuck.

    That’s 2 minutes of my life I will never get back….

    My wife names all her cars Heathcliffe.

    A while ago she was driving a really old, rusted car that was unreliable. So I went off and found her a nice 2nd hand car and bought it as a surprise.
    When I arrived home with it and handed her the keys, she burst into tears as she was more upset that she would have to get rid of Heathcliffe.

    My wife’s family refer to them by colour. So we stared doing that, but now we have two grey cars. We still do it, and it still seems to work somehow.

    My ex GF called our A Claas, Klaus.
    She called my M3 Convertible, bluey (laguna seca blue. See )
    Then we had a B Class and she called it Boris.

    Lovely girl.

    The wife hates them all as a resultwishes they’d all just get on with it

    You know, there might be something in that…

    My old TVR Griffith was called Sully – big blue monster.

    I name all my cars. It’s no worse the manufacturer branding them with fanciful model names IMO (would you have driven a Cortina in Cortina?)

    Perhaps oddly, I don’t name my bikes.

    I’ve always named my cars. The name always has to have something to do with the registration though. My current car has WRZ at the end so the name is WuRZell. My last car had LFG at the end so the name was eLFie-G. The one before that had OCA at the end so the name was OsCAr, and so on..

    Thinking about it, our VW Touran has a name. “Utter sh*te”.

    The naming of cars is a difficult matter, it isn’t just one of your holiday games…

    My focus was the slug, because it was slow and left a shiny trail everywhere. Mondeo has no name but might aquire one some day.

    I drive Stacey the Safety Bus – named by Miss njee20 to encourage safe driving. She has Pollyanna (Polly) Polo.

    Previously there was Fiona Fiesta (aka Crazy Fi) and Huxley Pug.

    My other half refers to our Golf as “the VW”. This is accurate but given our other car (van) was also made by Volkswagen it isn’t very useful.

    Tom at college had a fierce panda.
    We currently have Delilah the Peugeot Partner, and Betty the Fiat 500. Both named after hearings songs (more or less).
