I'll be referring to mine as "my SUV".

Sports? Fully sport capable and quite sporty to boot.

Utility? I'll be utilizing it a whole lot.

Vehicle? Yeppers.

We could adopt "Eli". At least it can be derived from Elise.
The "back off" mud flaps seem wise. People tailgate my Highrider but I can see around them. In the Elise I won't be able to tell if someone is about to pass them as I pull out to pass the car in front of me!
Of course as long as I have the revs up it would have to be an Enzo to hit me.

Aloha, Paul

I just like "lise" (as in lease). Liz sounds ugly.

I'm naming mine "Rumpledforeskin"

When the group Journey was trying to come up with a name for their band, they held a contest on a radio station for the listeners to name the band. One of the entries was "Rumpledforeskin".

My god, is everyone going insane waiting for their cars to show up?! This thread is about as interesting as the one following the demise of the official board. I couldn't care less about either

Besides my desperate longing for my Elise to show up, I cannot wait for the day that we actually have real car owner type stuff to debate endlessly!
