Alfas - What's yours called??

Well ya read around the forum, and I've seen a few people reffering to their Alfa's by name... misty, bella, etc etc

So... What's yours called and why??

My 147 was named Rocky by a lad called Chuck...

reason being:
she's had a timing belt break needing massive engine work, she was crashed into by a toyota hilux, and has had a few other niggling problems..

But no matter how much of a beating she takes she will NOT stay down...
hence, Rocky (the black italian stallion)

What's your Alfa's name, and why?

Mine's called the 159 or the Sportwagon

Only ever named one car - my red Ren 5GT turbo, which was called Lucifer. Main reason being I audibly called it a "wee devil" the first day I had it and the turbo kicked in, but also the reg was C867 LUS.

Havent thought to give it a name. I will admit to saying, in a soft caring tone i add, 'that's my girl' as i leave something else behind, but other than its annonymous.

Re: Alfas - What's yours called??

Well mine is defo a girl, but so are all the cars I've had.

Mainly because they cost a lot of money, and they're never far from throwing a tantrum and leaving me stranded somewhere wondering what I'd done wrong.

Re: Alfas - What's yours called??

Never gave any of my cars a name.... they are called by their model name....
Even though each Alfa seems to have a personality of their own, I also cannot put them into any gender... its an object after all (admittedly, objects of beauty, style and grace)

Re: Alfas - What's yours called??

I call mine Misty. MST in the reg number sparked it off I guess. It's only the second time I've given a car of mine a name. The first time was my Fiat Coupe which I called Big Fat Chap, the reg number was BFC on that one. But I think I was refering more to the driver than the car

The numberplate thing doesn't work with mine 'cos it's a private plate JGH. Mr PG says it stands for Julie & Grant Hollis until we get divorced and then it'll be Just Grant Hollis

Mine's male - same reasons.

But if you get the right one - well that's a completely different story. Or so I've heard. It once happened to a friend of a friend of a friend ........ But then she's a notorious fibber.
