I'm getting in on this a little late, but my coupe was called the Bumble Bee because when I bought it the paint was a GM yellow and Honda Black that made it look like a bee. It is now painted Chicle/Copra Drab, so no more Bumble Bee. Mostly just call it "the A" now.

Add "Fay" -- after my cousin/land-lady. She is also a 1930 model . . .

The names for my vehicles are more generic, i.e. "The A" or "Town Sedan" (Altho my wife refers to the Town Sedan as "Your Girl"). Then we have the "Grocery Getter" or "The 55", My wife's "FLEX" or my "Truck". Then lastly there's my grandson's Taurus "The Bull".

Our 30 Town Sedan is named Priscilla, after Priscilla Mullen, a little girl on the Mayflower who took quite an interest in John Alden, a cooper on the Mayflower. They later married and had 10 children. I am a descendent of John & Priscilla , so our old girl is Priscilla.

My 1929 cabriolet was called "Bessie" when my grandmother had it from 1930 to 1954. When I got it a few years after she died, my mother did not like the name because it was her name. So the car lost its original name and has remained nameless for all these 50 plus years. Once it is back on the road in a few months, if I get the urge to name her, it will be "Bessie," in memory of both my mom and grandmother. I have already given her a gender in my mind, something I have not done to a car before now. I have never given any of my cars people-type names, but this may be a first.

Nancy ---- for the former owner's wife who never liked the car and rode in her once.

My 1923 T was Betty Ford (because she only had one headlight)

Actually, since our tribe does not practice the ritual of "car naming" none have been chosen for any vehicle. Was however thinking of providing a moniker for the 1931 Tudor which was bought by the previous owner from a guy on Manhattan Island, New York City decades ago.

As the story goes, back in the day, this Model A Ford car was chased through Times Square and down Broadway a few blocks by the monster primate "King Kong". The name that came with this car was in fact . . . "Fay Wray". She was the screaming blond babe who was driving this actual car when pursued by the big ape through Manhattan streets in 1933.

" Fay Wray" . . . Kinda has a ring to it!




Fay Wray

When I restored my 31 coupe some 30 plus years ago, my oldest Grandson would always go with me to some of the car shows. He would always refer to the "A" as precious, he is 30 and married now.
Consequently it will be his when I am gone. My 31 S/W was called Deen , by my youngest Grandson it was green in color but he couldn’t say green, he is 21 now. Same with this car it will be his when I am gone.
