Snit as in "Driving off in a Snit". I saw that in Mad Magazine over 40 years ago.

I call the 29 Tudor "The Gerald A" after my dad, That was his name(no middle name just the letter A).
I affectionately call the son's Subaru Outback "The Rice Burner", Which is just a Detroit area thing, Unfortunately!

My 31 Roadster's name is Milly. When I got it it had a California plate with the letters MILLY. Another Model A, my dad's car which I have owned since 1986 is called Julito, It was built in July 1928 (Julito is small Julio which is Spanish for July. My 31 Roadster pickup is called Willy after my father in Law who loved pickups.

I wonder if there are any women here? Looks like girls do not give names to their drives.. On the other hand, we are less likely to drive old ones. I'm lucky to steal the old pickup from my husband, just for fun. And nowadays cars don't have that much of a personality imo...

Our 31 wide bed needs paint thus is named "Chip". The 30 roadster could use a new top, nickname "Raggedy Annie". The Vicki is named "Miss Daisy" but lately she has been somewhat cantankerous so she has been referred to as "Christine".

I have 3 Model As named as follows:
1931 tudor named Smitty after the man I purchased it from.
1930 Fordor named the Green Machine as per its color.

1930 Town-sedan named Caliche. Caliche is a gravel like road foundation material which is a light tan color and very dusty. I found this car in a shed which had open ends. It was stored there for numerous years and completely covered by caliche dust-even the fenders were tan. Hence I named it Caliche. I did a frame up restoration of it and you can see it in my avatar.

I was single and 54 year old and bought a 1929 AA CCPU. Henry Ford called his Model A's Henry's Lady, I named mine my old lady.

Dad I don't think named the A when he had her. But I named her Barbara. For the first woman I had a crush on when I was a kid. Barbara Stanwyck-I know class and style when I see it!

My wife calls our Town Sedan "The Ol' Girl"... because Ol' Girls are creaky and drip a little.

Not very original here. One is the Roadster, and the other is the Truck.......

Back when I was spending every weekend working on the Truck, my wife referred to it as "the other lady". Ed Williamson
