Car nickname?

So my wife and kids started this tradition a while back where we give nicknames to our cars. I guess it is easier for them to remember than the make and model. Although "Mom's car" would be simpler, it's not as much fun for them.

The first car was a silver Odyssey minivan nicknamed Spaceship Earth because it looked like the big globe ride at the entrance to Epcot in Disneyworld. We named a Prius we had Larry for Larry David since we watched a lot of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The latest is Sam - a black Pilot nicknamed because the front looks like a pilgrim hat and I guess they thought Sam was a good pilgrim name.


We in the process of naming our new-to-us black MY11 E550 Luxury. So I thought I would see if anyone else out there has any interesting nicknames for their car.

Anyone can to share?

E550 = Speedy. But they are both 4matic so neither should be Shaky. What's the story?

The story is that the other car needs a new set of rims. All four are bent!

Oh, maybe I can try Dark Knight since mine is black. They will probably laugh at me.

Sounds like you need a custom license plate frame...

not here. I love telling them to remove the license plate frame and any decal on the trunk. They always ask why and I always ask them if they are going to pay me to advertise for them.

after I got my last car the dealer/salesman was asking me to 'do him a favor' and give a good review: as if!!!!!!!


when I asked the dealer to 'do me a favor' and not **** me over, did that happen? NO!!!!

2016 Audi S8 Plus/ 2011 Mercedes e550 4Matic//Gone:1985 500SEL/2000 e320 4Matic/ 2001 e55 Kleeman
I always give my Mercedes German names. My first, a 1985 500sel was anmed Ziggy. My 2000 e320 was named Fritz. My 2001 e55 is Ziggy 2. My wife names her cars as well. Her 2005 Lexus rx330 was named Lilly and our cpo 2011 rx350 is Leo. With all of our cars, it can be easier to just say "let's take Ziggy". Of course personalizing cars makes it harder to say goodbye! Thanks. Regards. Ned.

So Dark Knight didn't work. We settled on 'Clark' for two reasons.

1. for Clark Griswold for my goofy experiences with plugging a tire and running down my battery already with this car, and
2. for Clark Kent since my E550 Luxury doesn't look that fast (luxury model) but can fly when needed.
