Does your car have a name?

by on January 26th, 2010 at 11:55am in News

I was inspired by an article I was reading on the web today, Does Your Car Have a Name?

Now with some brands, I wouldn’t think to ask, but with MINI I know almost for a fact, that every single MINI out on the streets today has a name. So what is it?

Share with us your MINI’s name and of course the story of how she, he or it received that famous name!

My car is “El Gato Negro” (the black cat)…

After seeing two black cats come across my white car in the first week of purchase I was scared that it was an omen, my car would have bad luck. I decided that the only way to feel better was to embrace the sitings by christening the car with its new name – El Gato Negro  =)

    Love the comments!

    I have to say that the teeth on the “Curv Etr” are a great edition – one of my favorite added MINI elements.

    Alan – does the Sunshine Supercar have any other fun insignia!?

    My car is called The Bullet
    It’s a dark silver JCW Clubman. Just seems appropriate.

    I have Clive, he is a very proper Brit lol.

    Mine’s named Elphie….which is short for Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West from the book/musical Wicked (read the book, have seen the musical 6 times in 5 different cities). Elphaba is green after all :-)

    License plate reads DRK KNT The “Dark Knight”. It seemed appropriate with my last name being Knight and the car color being black. Love the names of “The bullet and “Curv Etr”. My good friend, Robert has his JCW Mini named as “Lil Jon”.

    What great names. I have to say the name Clive makes me chuckle! It is a perfect British name!

    Mom’s Mini is affectionately known as Tinkerbelle(a sassy little lady!). My Wrangler is called “the Wobbler”and my Freightliner is known as “Budweiser” as it spent most of it’s life hauling Anheuser goodies.
