Do you name your car, /o/?
What's her name? Or is it a boy?
It's an identifier. I drive a terminator so obiously it should be incorporated in my identity on a auto related community for transparency.
If my email address were email@example.com you would have a excellent point
One of the serials under the hood ends in 666 (no pics because about 400 miles away from it due to family inna hospital)
i've brought it back from the dead twice now
It can haul all my worldy posessions without complaint like a proper beast of burden.
Not that guy, but you "breathe" cars? Fuck man that sounds autistic.
We name cars for the same reason we name our pets. Sure animals have a gender and will respond to a name but nothing says we have to name them. It's a sense of attachment and it's not complicated.
I gave up on them after during an innawoods thread they called me a murderer for going out hunting, and also participating in mountan lion abatement.
I gave them a 3 post lecture on the ecology, how and why of hunting and abatement of some species, but they weren't having none of it.
Further notes on my truck, two marks from trees (look like someone kicked the side panels with size 30 boots) after calfire ran me off the road twice, mostly superficial and mostly just scuffed the paint.
Dented front bumper after a fuckhuge dog ran out onto the highway and I nailed it at 45 (slowing from 65) and the dog lived, I decided to keep the dent, that and I can't afford to repair that.
A single crease along the tailgate where a fully loaded cotton trailer popped free of the hitch, and rolled downhill pushing me downhill with it. Surprisingly I did not wind up in the canal, neither did the trailer.
Gender depends on the vehicle.
Sports cars, and some sedans are female et al Mazda6.
Some other sedans like the charger could be female, but in the butch-lesbian style.
My 300ZX was Chloe
My Mitsubishi raider was the Red Raider because I'm in Texas and isn't that clever amirite?
Trucks are generally male.
>naming any vehicle that isn't a boat
Wanna know how I know you're gay? (its not the miata)
here's some gay dance music you can listen to while you fuck
Here's where I expose my autism.
Each of my cars gets a male name, that comes from the country of their origin, that also alliterates with the manufacturer's name.
It started when my ex-gf named my first car, and we liked it because it coincidentally ticked all those boxes.
My first Citroen C2 (french) was called Cécil.
My Abarth 500 (italian) was called Alberto.
My second Citroen C2 is called Claude.
And my next car... well that depends on what it is.
Ford Focus ST?
Honda EP3 Type R?
>Musashi (or Mr Miyagi)
>Tatsuya (definitely not Takumi)
etc etc etc.
Come at me /o/
You're *in* a boy?
found in trash
9999999 torque because volts
1996 Dodge Intrepid I bought in 1997 as an ex-rental.
I name her "Nabiki" after Nabiki Tendo because she was awful expensive for me at the time.
Wish I had kept her.
(not my Nabiki, but very similar)
>So people take shelter when you approach?
It had (and still has) two thunderbolt within a spiraling storm stickers on the steering wheel and dash. I thought Typhoon sounded better than Hurricane or Cyclone.
No proper name.
It's simply my danger ranger.
or "the rang" shorthand.
I call my Montero Sport XLS, "Monty The Champ."
My s10 is named Lucy due to having the curvaceous stepside and being bright red.
My buddy named his 1987 ford f150 "Lightning Larry Luciano"
>mfw it's not even a lightning
i once had a KIA spectra whose rear badging was falling off in pieces, only c-r-a were present out of "spectra" and the "I" in KIA was missing so if you read it left-to-right all the way across it read "craka" and thus was that sad little KIA named.
You never quite get over the car that showed you that cars can be fun. And being a literal aspie makes it worse.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to go out shiny and chrome, sideways in a ditch on fire because I tried to turn.
Eva, I don't know why but it fit, and literally everyone I know (including my boss, my mother and my mates mother) referred to it as such
>Hyundai Accent MVi
Christina, also for reasons I don't know. Didn't get used much
>Fiat Punto "Sporting"
Louise, after some blonde girl my mate knew. I didn't name her but the name stuck
H A R U K A
Ruri, because she's small, feisty, cute, and wears black and white.
I know, I'm a huge weeaboo faggot.
And the car in question.
I know, I'm only a tripcode short of being as low as /o/ gets.
They're called the Sparco Terra, mine are 16x7. They're dirt cheap too, only $99 a wheel. They should fit an '09's lug pattern, but I don't know about suspension and fender clearance.
It's the only choice we have, and honestly, I prefer it this way. If I wanted a two door car, I'd buy a proper RWD sports car, I love the ST because it has all of the practicality of an everyday 5dr hatchback but isn't slow or boring.
My 740 Volvo was named The Bermuda Brick because everything kept disappearing in the rear seats and people lost their stuff in that car, nothing was never ever found or seen again. my friend lost his iphone in that car, we immediately used the locator function and it failed to locate the phone, which is odd because it was still turned on.
E32 is Erika
GTC LeBaron is very imaginatively LeBaron-chan
W123 is Zyklonwagen
300C is Beatrix
Some of you guys have some fucking hilarious names.
I don't have a name or my car at the moment. Any ideas? Car is a '05 Pontiac Sunfire, pic related is the only one I have. Light has since been fixed and dent pounded out.
>happy little 93 corolla
>named it skipper
