Re: truck names

I think Gertrude is a good name.

Perhaps Sunny if it was painted a bright color.

My truck is called Gretchen

Re: truck names

My wife calls mine "That D&*@ Piece of $h17" She and it have a troubled past...keys locked in it on a cold November day, rusty brake line busted at a Home Depot parking lot, spun a bearing going down the highway to an auction.

Re: truck names

You can't really pick a truck name. It just happens. The truck will find its own name eventually. I've got a feeling that when mine does, it'll have several cuss words in it.

Re: truck names

When I bought my blazer the valve seals were shot. Every time I started the truck it would smoke, so I named the truck "Smokey". The 86 pickup I use to own was just a plain tan, plus my favorite Sci-Fi show was still on tv, so I named the truck "Moya" after teh ship from Farscape...

The guy started the thread and hasn't even talked about any of our ideas. Guess we haven't hit the right combo yet!

I agree with Matt any thing with a motor in or on it finds a way of giving itself a name...I do alot of vanity plates ( there kool and cheap and say so much) I have WRKNSTF on my F350 diesal..you figure it out?? I have been fighting to get my new to me 70 slammed long bed done on a tight budget....

I was thinking for a plate........LO BGT.......

Re: truck names

My room mate's '74 Blazer is called "Tonka"

My truck doesn't really have a name. I call it "Truck" alot when I'm @ work. My mom suggested I call it "Banshee" and the g/f doesn't want me to name it.

You could call it "Rig"

Re: truck names

My burb's the Tank. I've had enough collisions with everything to get it that name, not to mention everything went on it and it's still my DD.
I had a white town car a while back that for some reason we named the "infamous white lincoln". The best day ever was when the cops said they were looking for the infamous white lincoln and now they'd found it.
