I'm hopping on this kinda late, but I called my green '98 Yoshimi, after the Flaming Lips album "Yoshimi Battles the Giant Pink Robots." I named it that because whenever I hear that album, it reminds of last summer when we were cruising around in Jackson Hole, WY. I was a wildlife biologist there, and I had to drive about 100 miles a day to keep track of our grouse and whatnot, so I'd roll down the windows and crank the Lips in my lean mean field machine!
Ironically, Yoshimi "died" while I was listening to the same album on Feb. 15 when we were struck by a semi while traveling on the interstate. RIP Yoshimi!!
