    Sounds weird.. but anyone have a name for their DSM? LOL

    If so, what is it and why?

    I named mine Christine because I'm a bit of a movie buff and there's a movie of an old red car that kills people. It kind of reminds me of me and my Talon, but instead of killing people it kills my wallet.. :cry:

    Yeah, I named my car Talon. I know.... not very original.:ohdamn:

    But I pronounce it TAL - LON.

    I think I did it because there was this weird owner of a DSM shop that said it weird like that so I started saying it jokingly... Not as interesting as naming it after a killer car from a movie..

    My old car was the Ecli because the "p" had fallen off the back so it read Ecli SE.

    This car is Tissy...because I like pronouncing acronyms (TSI)...nad because is sounds like pissy...which she can be

    Mine is "Eclipse". It already had a name when I got it. You can't rename an old dog or it will get confused.

    I'm currently on my 2nd & 3rd DSMs. The first one was my car for 15 years, and it never got a name. It was always just "the Eclipse". But DSM number the second is "Murderwagen". It came from the deepest darkest depths of Springfield, IL, with poorly murdered-out lights, a smashed-up rear 1/4 panel, and a rattle-canned metallic black paint job. It also had no muffler when I bought it. It's totally brutal. It's so metal.

    DSM number the 3rd is pretty much an exact replacement of "the Eclipse". I've toyed with naming it "the Spook", or "the Spook from Spokane". It's like a ghost of the old car, which is why I bought it, and I flew out to Spokane to get it. I haven't really worked on it or driven it yet, so a name might come up, but it hasn't yet.

    My car is called Kiara Snowshoe.

    I write and draw on occasion, and the Eclipse reminds me of a rabbit character of mine. All black, nimble, and a bit of a personality. :p

    The Talon is "Black Betty." Some broad also gave her the name "Bertha" at one point and sadly it caught on with some people, but "Black Betty" is official.

    Also all the "negative" ones listed above.

    My Grand Am is "Silver Bullet." Was my buddies car and he had named her that before I got it.

    I named mine Caroline because "sweet caroline" was first song that came the radio as I drove away with her. I named my other DSM Georgia because that's where the transmission came from that I used to convert her from AT to MT.
    Cars must be given a name IMO

    ah, the same reason why mine are all girls. In order to keep them happy, you have to keep giving them money and once in a while you get a ride. :rocks:

    As a matter of fact I do:
    I used to have a beater baby blue integra as a dd. A couple of us jokingly started calling it "The Dolphin" or The Fin for short:)

    So being that the Talon has more power, looks meaner and has the colors for it: It was coined "The Shark":rolleyes:

    Sad thing is: I think the Fin could have beat the Shark when it was completely stock with 13b/auto:shhh:
