Car names?

I'm wondering how many of us have named our cars? I'd be interested to know the names if you have one...

If you haven't grown up by the time you're 60, you don't have to.

I call mine Fabiana. She’s my Italian mistress and does a good job keeping my bank account drained. Uncle Mike does your car have a name?

I call mine SCATOLETTA (small box). It has a more of a meaning in Italian. When compared to other cars in North America, she looks very small but a lots of PEP.

Tuesday will be a sunny day 7c I will take her for ride, then she will be winterized till April 2018.

This summer I had lots of fun driving it around where the curiosity, head turns of people and complimenting me for the nice car. But the best was " WHAT'S AN ABARTH", cause no where you see FIAT on the car.

124 RED SPIDER MANUAL STICK ABARTH. FORGE VALVE V4.1 Euro-drive-lite- RACE + map, NGEN Coils and PTP turbo thermal blanket, catch can and REMUS Axleback exhaust with Carbon Fiber tips.

"Fifi"...I guess I could have called her "Rosie"....ha.

I can't decide between Bianca (she is white) or Anneliese (Carlo Abarth's 3rd wife).

Turini 1975 white. Enjoying it very much, thank you for asking.
