  • Ford Model: Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec (Mk7)

Posted 01 September 2009 - 09:39 AM

Just a silly little topic - trying to think of something different to ask, to while away the minutes.

What do you call your Fiesta? (I've seen a few good'uns mentioned on these forums, but thought we could gather them all together in one 'pet names' thread).

Also, any unique suggestions for what I could call mine when I get it? (Clean ideas please!) I'm normally quite good at this sort of thing, but my mind's gone blank at the moment.
(The car I have on order is a Colorado Red, Zetec 1.4, 3-door, petrol, manual transmission. No extras - just the bog-standard model).

Apart from calling it 'Red' or 'Fiesta Rantzen' (sorry, bad joke), any ideas would be welcome.

Cheers,

Sarc.

Yours could be Colin - Col(orado)in. I also like Fiesta Rantzen. :lol:

Mine's Frosty - everybody sing - "Frosty the Fiesta, was a jolly happy car..."

Always wanted a Husky, and this is as close as I'll get for a while :lol:


I've always thought Dylan would be a good name for someone/something?

I generally don't name them - I don't like to get attached due to the inevitability of a trade in.

I almost shed a tear when we traded our old Megane in a few years back.












My, what a manly moment for me.

But if I had to I'd go for something very generic. Like Steven or Carl or something.

I like your 'frosty' name - goes quite well. Not sure about calling mine Colin though! Might get a few strange comments - me being a bloke, and all that! :blink: Thanks for the idea though.

I sense a slight 'Magic Roundabout' theme here! :D

I only name my cars when I consider them special - my first car - Suzuki SC100GX was called Farter (FTR plate) and the only other one that really stuck was Tango for my Hot Orange Convertible MINI. This one will get named but just need to get hold of him and find out what his personality is like - PEA POD works as PO'D are my initials too (shame I can't get P34 POD number plate tho)

I like the 'Uncle Festa' nickname - don't worry, I won't nick the idea though. :) Still trying to think of a pet name myself for my own new car.

I know what you mean about the 'attachment factor', (Reel105). I'm trading in an eleven-year-old Megane, (under the scrappage scheme), to buy our new Fiesta, and although I can't wait for our new motor, I'm dreading leaving the old car in the dealer's car park - especially knowing what's about to happen to it in the next week or so. Very sad! :( (These tin boxes become part of the family!)

Mine will be called Claudia since it's incredibly sexy and made in Germany.

I once had an XR3i which I called Sharon after a friends wife (it was short, fat, moody and always wore black).

LOL - love the name for your old Suzuki. (Hope it passed it's emissions tests). :lol:

Pea Pod sounds good for the squeeze colour.
