With the media spotlight shining brightly on other stories, You may have missed “Name Your Car Day” on October 2. Ships, boats, spacecraft, planes, trains and other transport get named, but we often neglect our daily drivers.

Vehicle names follow gender lines with macho names for guy’s cars and trucks, while in my experience, women will favor whimsy and cute.  Pickup trucks lean country. There are classic cars and junkers, luxury and sports cars.

I had "Pony" for my Mustang, "Moon Unit" for a van (that looked like a lunar rover from Heavy Metal Magazine.) A relative named her black Comet "Sambo." Not real PC, was it?

What name is/was your favorite? What kind of car and what name?

Leave your answers in the comments.
