The "Rail"! Because it handles like it's on one! Or "The Sled". Hmmm As I was just reading another thread where somebody left a nasty "hater" note on another members car that referred to the size of his junk, let that car now be known as "The Donger" (I hope you guys and gals remember that 80s movie 16 candles)

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

Well George, it happened!! Her name is now "Moxie" - If anyone has ever seen Lost In Yonkers, thats where my wife and I both turned to each other and agreed, the Viper DEFINITELY has Moxie!!:headbang:

My '02 ACR is named Elvira...because I figure that if Elvira Mistriss of the Dark (who also has beautiful curves) ever wore anything other than black, she'd wear a Graphite Metallic color. My '03 Mercedes SL500 Sport is named "Sadie", my '06 BMW 750Li is named "Penelope".

Regards,
Aaron

Hey. Wait a minute!! :confused:

Yeah I know. Old thread. Can't remember that far back...

See below.

:D
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

Any new baby should have a name.

When mine was delivered (weighing 3,284 pounds, zero ounces, arriving a bit overdue), she didn't have a name for a few days.

Finally, it was decided that her name would be 'Vy'. It seemed appropriate for a Viper.

As a 1992, she was a bit red when she came home, but apparently are babies are like that when they first come out.

I find myself often saying ‘veeper’
Because many years ago I read a magazine article (remember those days?) about comparison with Lamborghini Diablo vs Dodge Viper,
And there’s two things I remember
1-they were showing off the Viper’s impressive torque by accelerating in 3rd gear from a standstill. So they tried the Diablo and it also succeeded. The test drivers were very impressed and said “the Diablo also has torque!”
2-the same article indicated that an Italian test driver pronounced Viper as ‘veeper’

So yeah I say Veeper (mostly just in my head)

Devil ZB II

You may heard of Wangan Midnight ... the unbeatble Datsun 240Z has the bad habit of crashing/killing but always being fixed/returning in this anime because the people are so addicted to it - and it is called Devil Z. Well, of course I'm not Akio Asakura, but my Viper also got into an Autobahn crash and I fixed it on my own (same addiction) ... only natural to use the platform designation ZB II of my 2010 Viper as funny (or not) nod in that direction :)

I name my cars after ex girl friends. Not going to tell the names of my current residents. Never know who's looking in.

I know that feeling. At this point I almost feel like I should name mine Phoenix... Had one "off-road incident" that didn't hurt it too much, but left some noticeable "features" in the floor pans are required a new rear panel and bumper to fix. The other rebuilds have just been engine related after rod bearing issues. The first one I caught early enough to not do serious damage, but the second time around it shattered a rod. It will always get rebuilt though, I have no intention of ever selling the car.
