Lil' bit a humor. SVO / WVO.

Phat Diesel....One of the names I thought I'd call my '83 Rabbit 1.6 D.
Or perhaps....Oilly Rabbit....Phried Bunny.....

Any ideas ?

How about the Greaser Bunny? Not quite as rare as the Easter Bunny, and the chocolate's not as good...

How about "The Rabbit"

"You're going to Kingston to buy groceries? That's a bit of a drive, better take The Rabbit."

Naming cars is stupid.

naming

cars is harmless fun. saying something that gives others pleasure is stupid is not polite and mean and not necessary.

i used to name my cars and still do occasionally. most of my benzes have been otto. my dodge truck is the big dog. my wifes pt cruiser is the grape.

lighten up please, glinko.

I indiscriminately call a lot of things stupid.


I'm stupid.

(no really I am)

I mused over calling the 240 "Cross-Eyed Mary" when I first got it because the PO had done a horrible job at aligning the headlights.


Then I wanted to call it Benjamin Flatte.



Now I just call it "The Mercedes."

"Take the mercedes, dad, it needs a run (it's also running low on fuel and you always top it off when you drive it)"

I disagree, you're absolutely correct. I am/was being an a-hole and need to amend this problem.

Ah yes, the 52 HP (hare power) diesel. or was that 48? Can't remember the year they upped the juice. Actually pretty good little motors. Too bad a lot of the American VW mechanics had no idea how to work on them. Then again, a lot of us were on the wrong end of the learning curve. I got to where I could time the darn things by eyeball and be more than close enough to run well. But no more cogged belts. Now I'm chain drive! Still have my VW tools hidden away somewhere.
I'd like to name my cars, but I'm not very creative. I guess I'll just have to grab some names from Wagner operas.
My Suburban on the other hand IS the USS New Jersey. That thing is a battleship and consumes fuel like one! But, like the ship, when called upon to do its job, it does it well.
