Before I got my first vette a good friend told me "remember, vettes are made for cruising". So I tried a bunch of combinations at the secretary of states office to get a plate that had cruising in it - I landed on RUCRUZN - and that's been her name ever since

I have today purchased a 1980 c3 coupe. Eldest daughter calls it my "penis extension" as she thinks it is a mid life crisis thing.

I looked under my two vettes and found that they are girls, so that is why they wear bras. The "Pumpin" or "The Baby"is what I call her.
She getting a new 400 engine in May being built now..

It's called "The Boat".  because I'm just like the guy who has a small yacht in his backyard who pours lots of time and money into it, but it's never been on the water.

My '80 Vette got tagged with "four fingers" after her owner, yours truly. As one could expect - there's a story behind it. But between the paint last fall, the new motor next week, and the interior on order - she's reaching money pit status. I wouldn't have it any other way!

I call my '68 Rally Red Roadster Shark "Number 10"......Why? Well it is my 10th corvette........also #1 was also was a '68 C3 and then came the '75 Shark and they were followed by  2 C4s, 2 C5s, 3 C6s including a Torch Red Grand Sport Roadster...........The lines on the C3 are the best representation of flow, style and art combined.  The shape epidimizes speed while standing still.............all wrapped up it one word.....BEAUTIFUL.....which in my mind equals a "10"

my 82 is named "Lucille" - Lucy for short - after my mother. She was a feisty little b*tch that needed much attention, and let you know when things weren't right. 
love you Mom!!!!

Norsky said: Every one in "The Fleet" has a nickname -
 
"The Toy" -- '70 convertible
"The Beast" -- '90 ZR-1
"BIGBRRD" or "BLKBRRD" -- '78 Trans Am
"Betty" -- '28 Model A Ford Tudor
"Scooby Doo" -- '04 Subaru Outback
"The Silver Buckboard" -- '01 F-150


"The Toy", "The Beast", "Betty" and "Scooby Doo" have all gone down the road to new caretakers.  "Da Barge", our 1994 Class C RV, has joined the ranks since this post was originally made as has a 2014 Toyota RAV4 which is sometimes referred to as "Yoda""BLKBRRD" is still in the garage and its new Colorado plate is pretty darn nice IMHO (it will go on the car in July when the current "blah" plate expires).

I call my LT1 the Blue Beast. With no air, no power steering, no power brakes, a four-speed, side-pipes, and rock hard suspension, it is a beast to drive!
