My last car, Blue Polo, was called Sonic.

Fitting. Great for undertaking that car was.

I don’t. MrsN does. Usually based on some letters in the registration.

The last one was called Grace apparently. Because of the classic advertisement of Grace, Space, and Pace. She was distraught when the car was written off.

This one is apparently called Michael because the registration has MHL at the end. Ignoring the fact that I am waiting for the V5 (thanks for the reminder!) so that I can transfer a private registration to it. It’s not a name or anything like that, I just wanted something with XFS on as that is what the car is.

“You useless f*cking heap of junk” is what I spend most my time calling my car.

My hobbies include being quiet during trips, clapping with songs, and diabetes.

When I was a bit younger, I had two cars in a row with dubious number plates. Which was a pity as I was rather pleased with the cars, but my mrs nick named them;

Golf GTI - Number plate ended in FNY, consequently nicknamed fanny!

Audi TT - Number plate ended in CCK, consequently nicknamed c0ck!

Not my car, but I borrow Gertrude, the 12 year old audi. She's a bit banged up, but still a bit of a goer.

Mk5 Golf called Rhydian, then an Astra H hard top convertible called The Kaiser, then a Mazda 6 called Marilyn. Unfortunately the Mrs wanted a dog, so I had to swap Marilyn for a Honda CRV which so far remains nameless. Still trying to work out it's character in order to be able to give it a suitable name.

Hmmm, I also had a Honda CRV that I couldn’t name either, must be a design flaw.

Before that I had, Jaws, Carrella, Baby, Flash, Baby 2, the ugly CRV, and the neighbour calls my current car Fire Engine.

I like the car, but it's pretty utilitarian so doesn't really speak to me. I might just call her The Machine.

Not me, but at the funeral of an elderly uncle, some years back, yarns were being told that involved several of the cars he'd had over the years.

It was along the lines of, "You remember Ol' Bess", the *whatever the old car was*.

And someone else would say, "No, Ol' Bessy was another car, a *whatever that one was*.

And so forth, until it sunk in that's what he called all his cars.


I've only felt strong affiliations with my early cars, but those were proper cars with character; cars that you knew would be pot-luck if they would start in the mornings.

You can't do that with modern motors.

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.

I once drove through the Forest of Dean whilst my ex-wife (and I think this was before we married, sometimes the signs are so obvious that we just do not see them) repeatedly hit me with a road atlas because I had been critical of her map reading. And it was an old school A4 hard back cover one.

And why not? Cars are wonderful things that take on their own personalities sometimes!

Having been a mechanic I appreciate it when somebody genuinely sees their car are something a bit special, it means they look after it and keep it clean.

My first car when I passed my test in 1988, was a big Hillman Avenger estate. I had to name it after my footballing hero, "Big Al".
