As a former sailor I hold to the tradition that ships are women. So, I'll be naming her along the same lines.... I know FbodFather thinks that V-8's are male. But I have to disagree. If an aircraft carrier with all it's might can be a woman.... I'm perfectly comfortable with my Camaro being one.

Now, as for the name... I'm not quite there yet. I probably won't know that until I see her for the first time.

I agree with gtahvit.

My cars have always had female names. This one will be no differnet.

My wife is starting to get jealous. She says I talk about this car when I wakeup and before I go to sleep.

What is wrong with 2 women in your life?

It's a boy for me...you just can't talk to women about some things.....
I haven't decided on a name, though. It'll come to me when I take delivery of it.

After much thought and consideration.

I have decided to name my camaro Jedrek. It means Strong and Manly, and it is Polish origin.

Really? I thought since you had the goal of making it Pink and Black you might give it more of a feminine name. Just curious.

I always refer to my cars as "she". There are just too many similarities...pleasure, pain, $, etc.

I never understood why you would give a "thing" a name. I'll call it car or maybe camaro, but won't refer to it as "she" or "he"

All my friends call my Blazer Jimmy, which is also my name.

My dad calls his GMC duelly BuRT for Big Red Truck and his Garmin GPS Martha. So I will have to wait till I see what the Camaro's personality is. But if I paint it like the pick in my sig, I might name it Smokey.

My dad named it Martha cause everytime she says recalculating it sounds like she is scolding him for missing the turn.

HAHAHA, we named our Clarise (Silence of the Lambs) she was just the creepiest thing in the car, would speak randomly and try and have us make "illegal u-turn in 100 ft" EVERYWHERE...

All this GPS talk makes me think a GPS thread with the pros and cons of the various models is in order.

As for the name thing, I never actually named mine, just always called it "Girl"

Can you imagine a GM navigation system with Fbodfather's voice?

"Don't make that turn or I will send the Suburbans after you and you will be joining Shunt"

"Have faith and I will get you there"

Carey the Camaro? To go along with Silvia the Silverado; and Katie the Caddilac. Maybe a little Billy the Bridge and Larry the Ladder in there too.

Name of New Camaro

Not sure what I will name my new Camaro but my 80Z and 91Z had the license plates CAMZ. My nickname for the 80Z was the Nickle and Dime Machine.

Since my name is Kolby maybe I'll call it Cheezy?
