    Hi guys.

    I'm just curious about what people here have nick-named their cars.

    There is a whole philosophical discussion about whether you should name your car here.
    My car's name is in my signature, below. The name really means nothing to me, but a lot of people get into naming their car.

    Wow. I can't believe in 2106 that you can't say *sugar* on a forum?

    Cool names. I wonder if "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is taken...
    Or "The Binary Time Travelling Machine"
    Or "Made in Gallifrey"
    Or "Warp-drive upgrade to follow"

    I don't want to force a gender identity on it/him/her while so young, just 6 months...although Elon painted it/him/her blue already, so it might be too late for all that PC rubbish anyway.

    First name was 42, but then things got really weird, so settled on Kilowatt after a cartoon character my kids liked.

    Ha ha... I'm a big fan of the Disney movie, I used to remember all the songs in sequence! And, at one point in time, I used it as my wifi password. :)

    Well, to be more precise: They don't get names from me. My boat doesn't have a name either.

    Mine is definitely "Tessie". I say "is" because I know she is there waiting, even though I won't see her till Friday! And for some reason I am sure she needs to be called "Tessie" rather than "Tessy". Am I over-thinking this?
