Mine has been labelled as 'Elle' apparently because it sounds classy :lol:

My 5 is called Jessica...I'm not sure why - she just suits it! (J reg helps I suppose!)

Other cars have been called:

Carmen - Red MGBGT
Marilyn - White MGBGT
Rosie - Black Range Rover
Betty - White Nissan Micra
Trixie - White Golf mk1 GTI
Snowdrop - Bedford flat-bed classic truck

I like cars having names :roll:
5 is my lucky number...

Mine's called Patsy (as in Ab Fab) coz she's my selfish car - sorry dear, no I can't you and your mates up from Dunfermline at 3 o'clock in the morning - you won't fit in my car! :D

Holy thread revival Batman!

My Eunos is called "Wee Maz", and the CX-7 is called "Big Maz".

Pretty self-explanatory :D

I affectionately and ironically call ours 'Speedy'. This is me paying homage to 'Speed Buggy' which was a favourite cartoon of mine when I 'was' a kid. I also illustrated an MX5 version of the Speed Buggy logo to get printed into a t-shirt for my son..

I know that's not Fred with them but no idea who it is!

Yup, Hanna-Barbera made Scooby Doo and Speed Buggy and all the other classics like Wacky Races, Yogi Bear, Hong Kong Phooey. Think they knocked them out the door so fast they just re-used character designs from other shows.

As mine is an R reg, I'm thinking of something beginning with Q ...

No really, can't decided between Roly and Randolph. Any thoughts?
