Purchased a '95 RT/10 in September and it's now peacefully hibernating for the Winter. Just curious about a nickname for it. Used to have an Electra Glide that I called 'Bandit' because whenever I rode her, she stole all my time.

My wife named her Sporty 'Gayle', which means lively.

Not sure about the Viper though - after some pondering, keep coming back to the name 'Brutus' -
'cause it DOES have ***** and a stick shift......

Anyone else have nicknames for their rides?:dunno:

I named mine "Spanker". This was also my original forum name here until Lee deemed it was too ***** for the site.

I called my 94 "Red Viper", my 98 "Silver Viper", my 01 "Yellow Viper" and now my 03 "Gen 3 Viper". I am so damn creative I surprise myself... :****:

Had a 58 Impala named "casper"--all white
40 Ford coupe street rod we called "big red"
39 Chevy street rod called "pinky" -- all pink.
Not very imaginative, but maybe you can refer to the color?

My '02 ACR = Elvira (cause if Elvira Mistress of the Dark ever wore something other than black, it'd probably be Graphite Metallic and the GTS curves reminded me of her)

My SL500 Sport = Sadie

My BMW 750Li = Penelope, after Penelope Cruz....car is black (like her hair), loaded with options and such a refreshing drive...you can just sit there and it does all the work.

Next is either another Viper, a Hummer H1 and a Black Tie edition Prowler....I'm always thinking of appropriate names for each.

Regards,
Aaron

Thanks for all the feedback!

One of my wife's favorite movies is 'The Jungle Book'. She suggested calling it 'Kaa' (after the python in the movie) and it also doubles as 'car' for those with an East Coast accent. :D Our other car is an older Cadillac which a friend of mine calls the 'Land Yacht' :)

Since she was so gracious to let me make the purchase to begin with, I think it's name is going to be Kaa! :2tu:

Oh, and she corrected me about 'Gayle', her bike's name - it means source of joy....:dunno:

Yeah, I'm kinda stuck finding a nickname for mine.
But I do agree that it should be a female name.

Just let the name happen. Best way. Sometime you will be driving it and you will say "Oh, ****..." or "Damn..." or "This thing is just an ______". Just something will pop out and that will be the right name!

For instance, I have a friend that got real mad one night when he was bowling and took his shirt off in anger. He was the hairest guy anyone had ever seen and someone yelled out "Fur Curtain" at the sight of his chest. It stuck and his nickname has been "Fur Curtain" ever since. Just let it happen...:D

My CBR1000RR (sport bike) was named 'THE *****' because if you didn't treat her right (with respect), she would throw you to the ground and stomp on you. For my Viper, 'The Snake' seems to be fitting.
