I don't know if we are just a bunch of crazies in our family or if many people do this, but we name each car we own...

For example, our Jag was called "Jesse"... we called her "Jezebel" when she was acting up. I saw someone on the forums who named his Cube "Cubert"... so it got me wondering... who else named their car and what did you name it... and why, if there's a reason/story behind the name.

Ours is called Izzy. As in "What is he (izzy) driving?"...

Well I didn't really give mine a name. Most people I know refer to their car as a "she". "Ain't she a beauty?" "She runs great!" I didn't really feel my cube was a "she", but I don't really feel it's a "he" either. So I decided my cube is androgynous. :D
What could be short for androgynous?...Andy? No, I had a cousin named Andy, and he was a BAD seed, a bad annoying seed.

My family refers to it as the FRIDGE or the CLOSET. Well anyway, as of now, no name for mine. :)

I generally call it The Pube, got that from a friend. But he also recalled that before I had a green '54 Chevy, I had to use my dad's green '49 Plymouth. I called both of those The Green Bomb, so now he calls my cube The Green Bomb too. So it's the third in a series of some sort, I guess.

Huge coincidence: On "My Classic Car," a green '54 Chevy drives right in front of a green 4-door Plymouth. Two of my Green Bombs in one shot! What are the odds? And I have the video as a QuickTime file!

My Bitter Chocolate cube is named "Boxy Brown", LOL! My boyfriend wanted to call her "Bouillon", I wanted "Foxy Brown". My mom thought "Boxy Brown" was better. I think it suits her quite well.

Most people call my Cube a box or A Cube (in a smarta$$ tone with rolled eyeballs). I tell them Toyota makes the box car I drive a Cube. I'm thinking of putting Shallow Hearse across the windshield in black letters. I just call it my hearse for short.

Went in to pick mine up from the service department today and when I walked in the associate said Sugar Cube right! They loved it and loved the brushed ripple hooks too. They had the WOW never seen this before look. Like Nissan is the only one who can fill a hole.
