Sweet Pee. The previous owner 's wife named the car Betty as in (Betty Ford).
Me being a rebel without a cause said I would have none of that and named her Sweet Pee. All my friends, neighbors and people about town ask me how sweet Pee is doing. What can i say.

I bought "Vermin" from my pal down in Fresno. Didn't notice the name somehow until the seller, actually we traded, delivered it. The we both had a good laugh and I called to tell the owner Vermin had a good home. Now he lives in Australia in another good home. Many a good laugh for all of us from our pal Bill Williamson down there in Fresno. Need to get by and see the boy in person. I just don't travel there anymore and he doesn't get out much either, so we have never met. Vermin had a plate on the opposite side from the license with his name, "VERMIN' just like a license plate. That stayed with the car.

I found ELMER scratched into one of the spokes of the steering wheel on my AA; so I’ve been referring to it as Elmer ever since.

The 1930 ford I got in high school had "Hector" painted on the dash.

Never did give my A a name, just called it the "A". But from this day forward she will be named after Henry's Wife."Clara" After all she was Henry's Lady.

"Olive" is a fitting nostalgic name for our Kewanee Green Cabriolet

Naming Vehicles.

I had 5 trucks to load my cropduster aeroplanes, they all had a number. No one could remember which was which including myself. So I gave them all names. There was Chick e Babe, Spuds, Wharfie, Freddy and Scrooge. That stopped all confusion.
My roadster ute I named “Woofa.Express” after a dog I had with 100% character and personality. He was not permitted in house or car with the exception of the ute and Woofa concidered this his birth right. Woofa was skittled chasing another dog and I’m still grieving 3 year later. So in his honour I named this vehicle Woofa.Express. My tourer is “Desert Sands light” and resembles what we all would call “Olive” thus the name Olive. My dog “Fugs” is to have the Roadster Coupe named after him “Fugs Limo”. My FX Holden is to go to my daughter Sarah. (each of my kids has been promised a vintage). Sarah was born in ’74, (the year cattle prices collapsed). Because neither my wife and my self could agree on a name the two finalist names were put in a hat and Sarah’s name was drawn. But in the interim, because she was born on Bastille day she was called Fifi. Now at 46 she is still Fifi. So the FX Holden is named “Fifi’s Carriage”.

As a footnote, our kids are nick named Mushy, Moo, Fifi and Turtle. My friend Johnny tells me Turtle was an unfortunate pick because that’s what a girl is called; one who gets on her back and can’t get back on her feet so easily.
