My car is named Haunz (sp). When my dad had his TT it's name was Auto, and when my mom had her BMW 325 XI sport wagon we named that Gretchen. She now has a 330ci Convertible and we decided to name that Bitch.
I've never really been big into the naming of cars thing. The way I see it, it I can't yell "here (insert name here)" and it doesn't come, then there's no point in naming it. But that's just me. That, and I've never really been that creative. Maybe you guys could help me out.
Heh...funny you say that about naming it a German male name...mine's name is Fritz. Long story on the name...but everyone makes fun of me b/c I named it a guy's name, when "everyone knows cars are girls." Well you look at a black 2002 GTI w/ 17's and tell me it's a girl. Ha! So Fritz it is.
Everytime I race a Japanese car... wether it is on the street or quarter mile I pet her on the passenger's side center console and say "That a girl... Good girl" which basically started when I baby sat my brother's Doberman "Vicky" he always called her that.
