Do you name your car?

I named my Elise this weekend...her name is "Claire"...


And yes, I'm aware that Claire is a fat girls name... :D

I named mine Miriya. The name comes from the green-haired, green-eyed alien femme fatale ace fighter pilot from the anime series, Robotech. Fierce competitor, petite (when in "micronized" form), and curvaceous.

Simply "Liz" for me. Lisa was wayyy too tame. My Eclipse Spyder is "Zippy" but that seems like a misnomer now.:rolleyes:

I've been toying with names. My M Coupe was Ima (short for Imola), S2000 was Mia (after the Pulp Fiction character)...

Maybe I could stick with the same 3 letters and go for Ami :p

Iono.

I always name my cars. We all know "Wedgie" is my X 1/9. "Screamer" was my celica. "The pimp mobile" is the Datsun.

Havent decided what to name the elise yet. Cars have personalities, so I'll have to wait til she arrives before I can name her.

No, they name themselves.

Our cars have names, but they let us know what they want to be called.

1990 Eclipse: Frisky

1998 M3: Trigger

Wife's 1992 Integra: Sneapy (an Arapaho word meaning "runs on cheap tires")

Wife's 2002 WRX: Snort

1985 Econoline E-350 diesel: The Chez Geek Courtesy Shuttle

When the Elise gets here, it will probably pick a name for itself.

I don't name cars....I don't name anything. I once had a cat which I called "cat". If I call my Elise any name, it wouldn't be nice and it would be because it isn't being nice!

To quote my dealer after our last conversation:

ME: "When does my car arrive?"
DEALER: "Good news Lillie, you've been upgraded from SEE status to HFO status."
ME: "Would you care to share what that means?"
DEALER: "You shall have your car shortly after hell freezes over, but at least you'll have it before the sun engulfs the earth."

So, ummmm, still DOOMED!

Sounds like Nick.

Dealer: No updates on your car since being told that it was in build in early August.

Me: What about the weekly updates that Lotus sends you?

Dealer: Hahahahahahahaha [nearly chokes to death from uncontrollable laughter]

Me: So, when might my car arrive?

Dealer: We will call when it arrives at the port.


These days, my friends only ask once "So, where's your car". After my invective filled tirade about delays, price increases and lack of communication, they quickly withdraw with "So, let me know when it gets here".

I can only imagine what you're going through. Well, actually, I went through it in May-Jun-July. Consider it a rite of passage to Elise ownership. .NO ONE SHALL BUY AN ELISE AT MSRP AND ENJOY WITHOUT ENDURING THE REQUIRED RITUAL!! . And to think I have 6K on mine already. heh heh heh. :D

Sorry, that was cold. I hope you get yours soon.
