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.

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.

I call it "The CR-V". When I got it, I had "The Integra" ('92), the "The Honda" ('96 Accord), and the bimmer which my wife calls "Gidget". I sold the Acura, so we were down to "Honda", "Gidget", and "CR-V". Then a couple of weeks ago, I got rear ended in the Accord and it got totalled.

Now, I may change it from "The CR-V" to "The Honda". Time will tell.

Hot Shot

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.

I always name all of my cars too. Our g35 is named Gia and my old civic was Tino. :)

Car Names

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.

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.

When I went to the collision center to take off some after market parts, I cried when I saw him, I cried when I left him. I even wrote him a note and left it in the glove box. Poor Valentino aka Tino! :(

I feel your wife's pain. I think the the black pearl is an awesome name though.

Dana,

Looks like the rear crumple zone saved you, big time! It "gave its life" for you. :)
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!

I still miss him, but Kermit is starting to fill the void!

Kermit

"I think the the black pearl is an awesome name though."

I owe that to Honda's paint namers. I also briefly considered bullbat which likewise is related to the paint name, but Black Pearl seemed more elegant.

Kermit was the name of our froggy looking 90 Ford Tempo, Kermit the Ford.
