Since Mine is Clover Green Pearl I've Been Knocking around with Either Marvin (For Marvin the Martian) or Shamrock. I'm leaning towards Marvin.tayjenn said:Silly I know...but I am getting quite attached to mine. When referring to it I call it the V......"So, you want to take the V out tonight or your car?" My boyfriend just calls it the Honda. Just curious to see if people are nuts like I am.
I always name all of my cars too. Our g35 is named Gia and my old civic was Tino.All my cars have had names. A small tribute to my sister. Long story...anyway,
Car #1 Nelly (Nissan)
Car #2 Lance (Nissan)
Car #3 Hot Shot (CR-V)
My daughter picked the name. Although, 'The V' seems to slip out more often then Hot Shot.
You are so right! The reason I got a cr-v was because someone rear ended my beloved Tino (96 civic ex). I loved that car so much and didn't want to let him go.The trouble with naming your vehicle is that it creates heart ache when it is time to part with it. My wife loved our recent departed mini van Vincent Van Go and was insisting that we keep it forever. The van had reached the age of Jean Claude Damn Van in maintenance costs and I was trying to find a way to ease the pain of parting. I was looking at a 2007 EX in Nighhawk Black Pearl. I fell in love with it, but I could barely get her to sit in it. (This is the the first time since 1970 that I have feel in love with vehicle, the rest of the vehicles had the excitement of buying a washer machine). My wife is a Pirates of The Caribbean fan and as we were leaving At The Worlds End, it struck me, call the new CR-V the Black Pearl. That helped. When I decided to buy the car, I bought a black pearl pendant necklass. The first time my wife sat in the car, I told her to open the upper glove compartment. There was the black pearl pendant in a small black box. That helped too. I am still in the doghouse for getting rid of her beloved Vincent, but she is coming around.
Only have had the car two days and I love it with exception of the headlights on low beam (did they put shades on top of the headlights) and indeed the arm rests are terrible. I will say that Vincent was a far more comfortable vehicle, sort of like an old shoe.
That's what I said! It was pouring down raining and Tino didn't even slide or anything. I took care of him and he took care of me. He drove like a brand new car. (to me) The insurance adjusters said that the interior was flawless and the engine was super clean!Dana,
Looks like the rear crumple zone saved you, big time! It "gave its life" for you.
