DUDE!! I had a 1972 Dodge Tradesman van! It was blue. I had it till 1986 or so. It went from front line to the “surf mobile”. There was sand in that thing older than my kids.

97 Grand Cherokee, inherited from my dad, passed to my younger son. Had the wicked Jeep death wobble every few months. We named it death wagon.

A friend of mine had an old beat up Datsun pick up he called Hiroshima's revenge.

I had an AMC Pacer that had a few problems. I called her Emily, from the Simon and Garfunkel song For Emily Wherever I may Find Her.

When I was young, I had a red Chevy Beretta. So, I obviously called it the Red Barchetta.

My current 4runner is Beast, and my Wife's CRV is the Cervix.

My little black VW Golf R is 'Black Magic.' 350hp out of a 2 liter turbo 4-pot is pretty smart, especially with the Haldex all-wheel drive. Looks like a 4-door grocery getter, but eats Porsches. I've never had so much fun!

The Mini cooper is Mandrake, short for Group Captain Lionel Mandrake RAF.

The long departed 1964 Pontiac Catalina was Gwendolyn. She was a big girl.

Brown 73 caprice classic called "The LT", got it after grandfather passed,it was a built as unmarked police car, apparently my grandfather bought these back in the day.

my folks bought a mazda pickup in the 80's Dad told me they went to the Porsche dealer to get their new car when I was away at school, I got very excited until I got home at Christmas, it was the "911" from then on.

Had an mini van when the kids were growing up. Dog ate its own shit and barfed in it the first week we had it, was the "sharf van" for the rest of its days

I had a black base tacoma with a five speed and 4 cyl that nobody else could drive because the clutch was so finicky called it "Lord Vader" because only dad could drive it and am a huge star wars geek plus the color.

Had a neon that my kids drove and since my oldest is named Lauren it got named the "Lauron"

And finally the neon got hit by a drunk driver and totaled, we replaced with a rabbit for the kids that they dubbed it the "conejo"
