Even after 8+ years of ownership, 1000s of miles of "faithful" service, all the blood sweat and tears, work, money and (my) ideas that have gone into the (unique) car -

Its still an "it" and does not have a name -apart from "the Mondeo" (its a "man" thing) :lol:

My girlfriend insisted on a name for it - as did my family. Family because my old Punto earnt the name Brum (or "Crum" by my other half...that was before we were together too - turned out to be more accurate as it did start crum-bling around my ears)

The Focus was called Freddie and Lottie called her Fiesta Frankie. Her family have always named their cars lol

I tend to just call it "the car" or "the Focus"

Her previous car was called Norman (R-reg Saxo) because that was the previous owners name. And the family car is a Meriva (as were the peevious two Zafiras) called Jeffrey...because it came from Jeffrey's Farm.

I don't have a name for it any more,

But before I got it remapped I used to call it "tafuck"

When accelerating from 1st to 2nd I'd say "come on tafuck"

But since the remap I don't talk to it anymore lol

My friends affectionately called my old car Nigella, from the NG numberplate. Current car hasn't really been named, although maybe I should continue on the theme of daytime Food Network personalities?
