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

Pea Pod sounds good for the squeeze colour.


I am not sure that they worried too much about emissions back in 1983!

and as for the car - Green - Meanie, Goblin, Apple,

Have to say I kind of like the Goblin one (although the reason behind that is kind of rude! LOL)

Have something to contribute?

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).



I'm guessing mine will be Spanish - apart from calling it Cruz (as in Penelope), I can't really think of any other Spanish connection! :blink: (Please don't anyone suggest I call it Alonso!)

Unless there are any other clever ideas, I may end up calling my new car 'Rantzen' after all, (as in 'Fiesta Rantzen'). It's the only vaguely witty thing I've managed to come up with so far - not that I am, in any way, a fan of that particular celebrity, I hasten to add!

Or maybe 'Scarlet' - to match the colour.

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


Haha good try, but no cigar I'm afraid.

Brian was from Spaced 'ello Brian'. Just liked the idea of being able to say that when I was walking towards the car

Diefenbaker is from an old show called 'Due South' (thank you kindly) hence the mourning of the lost Husky

Dylan I've loved ever since I saw Dylan Moran Live: One of those names that seems to suit everything (male)

Having said that I might change my mind if the numberplate inspires me to do so. Depends on what it is

I stand corrected. :) I thought I'd heard the name 'Diefenbaker' somewhere before. I used to watch 'Due South' many moons ago. (not sure if you remember the episodes where Leslie Nielsen appeared - classic stuff).

My current car is called "the quattro" as it's an old audi (from Ashes to ashes - "Raymundo, fire up the quattro"). It's not actually a quattro I just like the name. Lately it's been called the Panzer, as in german tank. It drinks like one and is as big and heavy as one.

For the new Fiesta, that will have to wait for a name, a bit like a new baby you wait till it's "delivered" first (see what I did there?)

Flic, whenever you talk about Fabio I always think Fabio and Grooverider - I think they're some useless drum and bass djs from Radio 1. You need a friend with a Fiesta called Grooverider, so you can take them both out! Or maybe not...

LOL ... like your style, (and sense of humour as bad as mine!) :D And some good ideas for my car there - something to think about.

You have to wait until you have had it a few weeks to get to know the personality of the car too - although Pea Pod is growing on me and I can get a suitable personal plate for it that I can keep when the Fiesta eventually does go

although , I wonder if I can get a 608LIN plate . . . .

I'll doa search later but I bet they have either both gone or are so expensive as to not be an option - I can get a POD plate for around 250 tho!
