Default Do you name your cars?

I'm curious if you guys give names to your cars. I know it's silly, but would love to hear some of the names you give themasuming you do.

My son and Inamed our first car, which we pretty much rebuilt, 'The Professor'.This is because we learned a LOT from it, and it only responds if you give it the 'correct answer' ;-)

Thx

I let Associated, Kyosho, Ofna, Mugen and Losi do the naming for me. They have done a descent job of it so far!

my old T-maxx i call "Mr.Frumpy" because it drives like its on marshmallows.
the now dead rc18 i built that could do over 80 i called "melty" because it melts the gears before top speed.

the stupid powerfull OFNA 9.5 i call "scary" because it is incredibly loud and powerful its kinda scary.

but really 9/10 i just call them the t-maxx the r-18 and the 9.5 and to me they are all "rigs"

lol that's one thing i hated about my baja, it filled my back seat with grass every chance it got.

all the buddies i run with know my rustler as the trusty rusty, i'll bring a new/ newly fixed toy out to bash and wind up breaking something and i always have the rusty in the trunk itching to run.

The only car I ever named was an HPI RS4 3 Evo that I made all aluminum and called Purple Haze. It's also my profile pic.

I dont name my cars, but I name some of my wood airboats I've built. The theme of my first outrigger hydro was "speed or bust" and so far its still at "bust". "Sweet Home Minnesota" was my more recent build (which too is at the "bust" stage), and the current hull I'm building is "Lady Luck". Nothing original or catchy.... Just something, since everyone else has a name for their "craft(s)"..

Only thing I ever name is my 1:1 boat. The current one is named "Legacy" but even then I uaually refer to it simply as "the boat".
Cars, toys, etc I just refer to by make, model or owner. Like my Jeep, the Seadoo, my wife's car, the Glock, etc...
