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

Vette(s): 1980 Coupe, T-Tops, Red, 4-Speed, ZZ4 350 from Chevrolet Performance.
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!
Vette(s): 1981 Great White Shark. Red Interior, 350/190hp. PS, PB (SS), A/C CC, T-Tops, Going to remain as Stock as possible. Served three years in Active Duty Army, then Retired Air Force after 34 years! Badger State Vetts Car Club. 175,000 Original miles!!
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"
Vette(s): SOLD - "The Toy" - 1970 Convertible SOLD - "The Beast" - 1990 ZR-1 (#682) "BLKBRRD" - 1978 Trans Am, 400ci/285hp, 4 spd, Black w/black interior, Hurst t-tops
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 "Da Barge", our 1994 Class C RV, has joined the ranks since this post was originally made as has a 2014 Toyota RAV4 which is sometimes referred to as "Yoda".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).
