My mom names all her cars, usually after animals. (The big van we used to go on all our trips was called The Blue Goose.) She got annoyed when I told her I wasn’t going to name my car, and came up with a name for it herself. I forget what it was.
Every car I’ve had has been given a name, except for my Gremlin, which didn’t need (or deserve) one.
My current ride is Totally Ambiguous Pat, it doesn’t have a gender (a first for my cars), nor does it have a personality, except for being reliable. But Betty, Fred, Baby Blue Bunny, Lance, Miss Hollywood, and Heinz-Harald all had personalities and some were even reliable.
I always name my cars, as does my whole family. My current car is named Gracie . My grandmother once had a dull brown Buick that was named The Turd.
Hang on. I"ve lived in CA my whole life and I can’t remember a green plate. Specialty plate? Algae? Aside from those, I only remember black/ gold, blue/ gold and white/ blue.
