Default What's your car's name?

This will be a rather useless thread, but hopefully fun!

I've never "named" any of my cars before, but I've noticed that there are several 928 owners here who have named their babies. Some are quite clever and others leave you confused, but there always seems to be a reason behind the name.

I'm debating a few choices for my mocha brown '78 Euro, and a few possibilities are "Belsnickle", "Klaubauf", or "Krampus". All of which are traditional characters from the "old world", and Santa's darker counterparts & companions.

The Belsnickel shows up at houses 1-2 weeks before Christmas and often created fright because he always knew exactly which of the children misbehaved.[2] He is typically very ragged and mean looking. He wears torn, tattered, and dirty clothes, and he carries a switch in his hand with which to beat bad children. The children escape unharmed, but they are scared into being good so that Santa will bring them presents on Christmas.

Kinda describes my rather obnoxious, tattered & brown (but very well running) 928! Your vote?

If your car (or one you've owned in the past) has a name or nickname, what is it & where did it come from? Post a photo & explanation.

Well, I have "the white car", "the green car", and "the black car."

My profile pic shows why and which one is which.

Simple and unpretentious. Those who know me know all three are Porsches. Those who don't usually don't care. And a lot of those who do know don't really care all that much.

My car doesn't have a name till I have to work on it. Then it gets called all sorts of descriptive names, mostly a POS!

Alright, I'll be the immature juvenile. My 928 is named the 'Red Witch'.

Trinity talks about how blue your car is all the time, Bertrand!

The names of my current cars are in my .SIG. My red 944 turbo was 'Jake', but he's gone now.
