I have always given names to my cars, though, I still do not have a proper one for my xB. Curious as to what you guys have named your Box..or other cars.


97 Honda Accord Coupe- "Cherry Red" (though my buddies called it "lipstick red!"

2001 Honda Crv - "The Silver Surfer"

1986 Mercury Cougar - "The Big Cat"

1995 Mercedes Benz W140 (500) - "Big Body"

2006 Audi A4 Avant - "Butter Navy Avi"

2009 - WV Tiguan - "Big Tig" and "Penelope"

No! I name all of mine! My xB is Florence, like Florence and the Machine, but really more like Florence Nightingale (cause it's my nursing ride), and most definitely not like the god awful town of Florence.

We've had an Edna, a Bertha, The Bee, etc. :)

Ha great! My newly purchased box has yet to earn a name however. I have been leaning towards Rock Box, the original/best Run-DMC rap/rock song.

I've always just used the color as the identifier, probably because I've usually had more than one of the same kind of car, so you couldn't use the model name to signify one versus the other. When I had two 3rd gen Camaros, I called one Maroon and the other Red. I sold Maroon and the wife (girlfriend at the time) drove a T/A for a while, but traded it in on a black Z/28, so we went back to colors again, Red for one, Black for the other, with my DD Sunfire called Blue. Now, we have 2 xBs, and an iQ. The xBs go by their colors again, Blue is my 1st gen, Green is my wife's 2nd gen, Silver is the iQ, and I still have Red if I want to go fast on the weekends. :D

My kids have christened our 1st Gen "the boxcar". In retaliation I call them "the boxcar children" (title of an old series of kids books, kind of dopey)

The novelty of a lesbian driving "The Gay Box" or as it currently stands "The Rainbow Box" is too hilarious to pass up among my friends.

I was just wondering if anyone named their 'Box the name I think I will start calling my Box,


DIRTBox.


It's White and shows ALL the road Kill bugs en Stuff.

Also, the PO had stickers on the car, that when removed took minute parts of the clear coat with it.

So it always has a Dirty look to it...even when semi-clean...

When we originally bought my xB back about 5 hrs ago, it was the wife’s daily. And since she’s a mom and it’s a scion we called it sciMOM.

Now I’ve got it, and even tho doesn’t quite match as well but, its changed to sciDAD.

other cars we’ve had over the years tho:
04 mitsubishi lancer ralliart thunder gray - lancerghini
09 vw jetta laser blue - blue car
09 vw jetta candy white - white car or yeti
01 vw jetta blue lagoon - old blue
14 mazda cx5 graphite gray- MOMzda
04 gmc yukon sandalwood metallic(aka tan)- yuck or yucky
08 vw rabbit candy white - wabbit
18 honda hr-v aegean blue - MOMda
