    I was watching a Hot Rod TV show they did on "Killer Paint" owned by Mike Levee (sp). Most of you im sure have heard of him and his magnificent art work with a air brush gun. He mentioned in the show when he was doing a job on a truck that most guys name there car, and i was wondering if you guys do, im guilty of it i guess, sometimes in the last 7 years getting frustrated id say that thing reminds me of Christine's attitude, so we started to refer to it as Christina. After Mike Levee mentioning that i was wondering just how true it is?

    my kids give me a hard time about that, i never name any of my pets (expect the dogs) i mean it's not like i can call my turtle's name and it going to come to me, but i have been known to name a car or two...
    1964 max wedge is named "max" (of course)
    1963 "440" named "penny" (becuase thats all i spend on it)
    1970 camaro named "goner" (when it's done it's a goner)

    I had a 68 Formula S Barracuda that a buddy named the green slime (because it was green and he thought he had top eliminator that day with his blue car). Otherwise I was never into fancy names.

    My white RR is the 68 RR or the white car.
    The R4 69 RR is the orange car because it looks more orange then red.
    The hemi Belvedere is the hemi car. Or I suppose I should call it "finally".
    Green 66 Belvedere is the green car or rolling dyno or track car.
    71 Ranchero is the Ranchero.
    I now own my deceased buddy's 67 390 4 spd Ranchero so it is known as Mongo's Ranchero. His nick name was Mongo.
    71 F250 is "the blue truck".
    Durango is the Durango.
    52 Ford F3 pick up is the Sanford and Son. Of course!
    Dart GTS 340 convertible is the Dart or GTS.

    Geez, looking at this list I'm starting to think I'm Noah's Ark. Two of everything!

    My `68 Road Runner is the "JUNKYARD DOG" or "DOG" for short. When I started stripping the paint off of it I uncovered an vintage race car paint scheme and this was on the doors. How could I call it anything else? The other cars probably will get names after I start working on them.

    My wife calls the Dakota "Bad Penny". I'm not much on naming equipment (although I do talk to some occasionally), but I think that has a great dual meaning and decent ring to it.
