Certainly female.

Not really to do with personality, more to do with expense, hassle and lack of ability to be without.

I've named all my cars, it's the right thing to do. They break down less if you name them, and when they do, you've got something to shout at them :D

Oh, she's called Alfie btw. Not what I would have chosen to call her, but when I was searching for a name, someone suggested it, and despite me saying 'that's a crap idea', it just stuck.

mine's a she... defo, but she doesnt have a name... shes got a feature shaped like a females..errr.. feature!!!

Sometimes i do think my car's human becos everyday she is different... never the same. Unlike my honda which was always the same, everysingle day, always made the same noises etc.

Its better to be human... cos one day you'll be thinking... come on cheer up... then the next day you'll be thinking "I remmember now why i bought you baby"

:cool:

I was tempted to call the Alfa Sergio, because it was fast (surges) and Italian. But in my mind it was always called Vilk (my mum pointed out the letters on the number plate were close to the Polish word for Wolf, and that seemed approproiate).

The Puppy is just...like a puppy. Scamps about, is a bit unruly at times and has heaps of energy.

But I wouldn't ever name a car. That's just silly. ;)

Let me set this straight. I think my car is a PERSON, but I don't think she's human.
That'd just be weird :rolleyes:

Sadiki, you bad boy!!! :cheese:

My Alfa has a name, of course... some of you know it. I call her Eve, inspired on our sweet and tender Eve and the good Friend she is to me.

Yes, my 147 is my Eve and I love her. :)

I call my 166 Juliet, and she speaks to me (generally to tell me I am going the wrong way, or to turn left/right just after I needed to brake for the corner - is the SatNav set for driving at 10mph?).
