    It's things like this where I wish the internet would pull together and start uploading videos by the thousands of their car now named Eleanor.

    Well good thing mine isn’t a ford! Haha Mine has been Eleanor for awhile and it’s not changing. I even tried to name it other names but it just never felt right until I called her Eleanor, it was just meant to be

    Little side rant, but I've never understood the female names for the cars. Does a 600hp car with straight pipes and stiff suspension seem like a beautiful woman? I've always thought of my cars as masculine.

    Good point BUTTTT the pleasure it brings us, I’d rather it be feminine than masculine :sneaky:. With that said, there’s nothing wrong with liking the same gender :thumb:

    The allure of a car has for decades been "sexy" curves/lines, flashy paint (makeup), etc. Not unreasonable for the stereotypical male to be "attracted" to his car, always the running joke that a guy loves his car more than his gf/wife, spends more time and money on "her", she'd never cheat or leave him like his "real" girl might...

    Watch this scene from Christine - this movie was a love story about a jealous girlfriend ;)

    I truly hope there is another set of rims for that Mustang and those are just beater rims put on for shop work or something.... those things on there now are horrendous.

    I can understand a cease and desist order forcing the Youtuber to stop using the name, but how do they come and take possession of real property? Property bought and paid for by someone else??
