“Jelly Bean” and “Pearl” could be characters from a children’s book. They aren’t. They both have horns, steering wheels, tires, and, well—you get my drift. They’re car nicknames. “The Gray Goose” and “Big Blue” fall into this category as well. A few years back my friend, Becky, nicknamed her 2000 Dodge Caravan “The Swagga Wagon.” Her then teenage daughters, who were mortified to be seen in the van, nicknamed it “Social Suicide.” :+) Kim, my blogger bud, shared the story of a high school friend who nicknamed her car “Baby” because she spent half her time saying, “C’mon Baby….C’mon Baby…” :+)
With the official start of summer just three days away, I guess I have cars on my very fried brain. Right now I’m dreamin’ about hitting the highway in the Mercedes Benz pictured. In my fantastical dream I’m safely strapped inside “Bullet” and steering her at an ever-so-slightly accelerated speed toward the salty breezes of the North Carolina coastline. Ah…
Well, enough about me. I have questions for you!
Have you given a current or past car a nickname?
Do you have a dream car?
Will you be hitting the highway this weekend or summer?
Feel free to answer one, two, or all three of my questions. I sure hope to hear from you!
