I always named my cars, and considered them part of the family...kind of like a motorized pet or something.
With that, I present a brief family history:
Snowball / Bessie ~ 1999 - 2002
This was such a cool car to have as a teenager - I loved it like a precious little baby... until it died a horrible death by throwing a rod through it's own engine (no one told me I had to get the oil changed on a regular basis???)
Zippy ~ 2002 - 2005
Zippy was sweet little car... but I had a bit more need for speed :) At one point, Jen, Steph, Tshirts & Tiara's and I all had the same car - just in different colors!
Zippy is now living a gentle life of retirement with my Dad, who washes her regularly and never exceeds 40 mph :)
late 2005 - 2006 ~ Brief Interlude in Vehicle Ownership
I sold cars for Infiniti for about a year, and drove a company demo...the red sedan had a permanent rattle, the white sedan that I hated, the silver coupe that was super-dangerous because I exceeded the speed limit on a regular basis... you get the point :)
The Silver Bullet / Speedy ~ 2006 - 2009
Leased when I left Infiniti, this was definitely the nicest car I'd ever owned... and I loved the heck out of it!
However... SB/Speedy is being turned in this morning to make room for the newest member of our family...
Introducing..... the car that doesn't have a name yet :)
Yay, thanks Newlywed Husband, for getting me a car with navigation (for the new j-o-b)!!! And in black - so chic!
I need your help in deciding a name - and keep in mind that all my cars are girls - I've never had a boy car and don't intend to :)
