"Penny" got her name 'cause she's RED and cost me a pretty penny!  Big%20smile 
 
Mama hates "the other woman."  She'd be happy to see her gone. 
 
She also thinks that guys who name cars are crazy.  I name all of the "special" ones (not hers).  They all have a personality.

Mine is "Little Suzy" or just "Suzy"
It came to be when I was planning and doing the mild engine build up.  Very often when I spoke to someone of the project I kept hearing "That will wake it up"    Then there is the song, "Wake up Little Suzy, wake up"
Okay it may be spelled differently, but hey, I can do that.
 
So there you go.   And while not a race car, Suzy did wake up.  Now she shines too!  Thumbs%20Up 
Guess that means Suzy did the old Rise and Shine!  Wink  Rolling%20On%20The%20Floor%20Laughing

I had never named my Vette until I joined this site.  My wife has called it a few things from time to time, but we won't go there.  After all this is a family show!
 
TargaBlue72 just seemed to fit for obvious reasons.Wink

   When we got ours it was charcoal grey/black. I decided it should be the original color since the grey color was a disgrace. WAR BONNETT YELLOW is correct color sooo. My daughter names EVERYTHING, so the bumper car became  BONNIE. I do not care what its called as long as it is not derogatory. Seein this ones a "girl" the next one will be a boy. Its also the only one we have so its our favorite.

My wife bestowed the name "Happy" on my corvette. She named her that because I tend to smile alot when I am driving the corvette and driving the car makes me "happy".
