Question of the Week...
Do you name your vehicles?
I had some fun comments about Minnie-the-van over the weekend, so I thought this would be a good question of the week.
John and I have always named our vehicles, but we're not too terribly clever in the name department. When we were newlyweds, we had a Maxima that we nicknamed "The Max", and we called our Mazda was "The Maz". Clearly, we're very original. We did have a Plymouth Horizon once that we tried to call "The Hor" but that never seemed to stick, and thank goodness that car wasn't around for very long.
Years later, we had a Honda Civic that we dubbed "Little Lou", and honestly, I have no idea where that name came from, but it fit and we loved it!
These days, John drives a black car that we've had for a long time (we keep our cars forever), so it's name is "Ole Black", and when we bought our van six years ago, we collectively decided on "Minnie-the-van".
What about you? Do you have any special names for your vehicles?
