    We Corvette owners already know that we are a "Strange" bunch so let's see just how strange. I'm sure many of you have named your car so let's hear from you what is it?

    My car is "The Scarlet Avenger" or just "Scarlet" for short, yep, it has something to do with living in Virginia and GWTW.

    Keep 'em rollin'

    I've never named any car of mine but I know many people who have; I just can't seem to bring myself to do it.

    Yeah, owned three corvettes so far and a ton of Hi-Po vehicles, but have never named any of them, just enjoyed the heck out of them.

    Bill,
    You're not alone. I've named my Vette. I call her "Vixen."

    Please keep in mind Corvettes are livin' breathin' things with feelins .

    My first vett was a white 69 so I called it "Whitey " and My diesel truck is called "Big Boy".But other than that I've never named to many cars.

    Now we are getting into the swing of things, show some imagination guys/gals it's more fun to be a little "out there" because average can be a bit boring. I'll bet female names will out weigh the male ones, it just seems natural.

    Jdeatsch --- Wow, a Corvette named Hudson, I hope that doesn't upset the Time-Space Continuum. I suppose next we will hear of somebody with a Ford naming it Edsel!!

    Vette Boy --- you've got a good color for gravel roads. I had a silver 88 Allante for a few years and it always looked clean even though I'm a mile back from the mailbox on a gravel road.
    I'm really sorry to hear about your pal.

    I named mine "War Pony". I'm a member of the Comanche Nation of Oklahoma. Our people were known for having the fastest and best horses among all native nations. Additionally, Comanche horse herds were large. Well, with 350 horses (stock ) under the hood, my C5 carries on those traditions well.



    BTW, this is only the second car I've named. Way back in high school, I named my 1979 Trans Am "KATA". It stood for Kick A$$ Trans Am.
