names for your benz?

just wondering if any of you have a name for your car. My brother named his "trogdor the burninator" (go to to make any sense of it) a friend with his 325is called it Elise, and another friend with an E30 M3 called his "buzz". Any ideas for mine? What's yours called?

oh yeah... we also have a tahoe we call "the beast" because of it's insane amount of torque, threatening size, and less than economic gas consumption.

I think the name of a German battleship (the Scharnhorst, the Bismarck) would be appropriate for the 380SE.

The Volvo that's my daily driver? Very fittingly referred to as the "World's Fastest Tractor".

my cars never get named. they arent people or living things, they are machines and thus I don't give them a personality.

That and I can never decide what name I like more.

'92 300CE - Sold
2004 C240 - 744 - C7 Wheels - Android Radio
2002 C320 - 816 - Sport Wagon

My 300 SEL is called Pearl because her color is black pearl . My 300TD is called Myrtle the turtle, go figure. My wife's C240 is called my wife's C240, as wifes go, its just a car to her.
