    Car Nicknames

    I know you guys all have nicknames for your cars. I'll start off with mine...

    Black 1996 Tahoe: "Black Beauty" or "The Hoe"
    White 1997 GMC Safari: "Mystery Machine" or "Big Bertha"
    Gold 2002 Olds Aurora: I'm not too sure yet!

    ...Actually, I wouldn't mind some suggestions from the audience for a nickname for the Aurora....I was thinking "Goldie" but it got kinda boring and feminine.

    Re: Car Nicknames

    G6: "The G" or "Stealth"
    Equinox: "Nox"

    Pretty basic here...

    My new truck is called "Z" for Z71. My old truck was called "thunder" because of the loud exhaust I had on the truck.

    Re: Car Nicknames

    I generally refer to them as what the are, i.e.: the Chevy, the Trans Am, etc. but-

    '69 Chevy C/10 - "Rumbles" or "Rumbly" due to the lope, but I like to call it my "Hot Rod"

    '84 Trans Am - "Knightrider" for obvious reasons, named so back in high school even if it is blue-grey

    '78 F150- "The Beast" just cuz it looks horrendous and has gone through so much but still keeps goin

    '05 Sunfire - Doesn't really have one, don't know why

    I'm not one for nicknames myself but a friend once dubbed his car "TJ" after his then girlfriend Tamara Jane. She thought it was magnificent. He did it because they were both bitches. The car outlasted his GF.

    I gave my aurora 2002 a nickname of sparkie goldie. Sparkie is from the word spakplug since gmc spark plug wire is my always problem with it, goldie is from golden.
