What is your car named? And why?

My car, a 2016 Mazda6, is named “Sylvia.” Why? I wanted an “S” name since “six” starts with “S.” Sylvia came to mind for some reason. So, as we were leaving the dealership with her, the car became Sylvia the 6.

On the way home (we went to an out of town dealer because the local one is terrible), I had Pandora radio going and on the ‘80s Country station (don’t judge). This song came on:

I took that to mean I made the right choice with the name.

^^First photo I ever took of the car.

Now, for my truck. It’s a 1995 Chevrolet S10 LS 4x4. Finished in a faded patina of GM’s impossibly ‘90s color, Raspberry Metallic. My wife calls it pink, and I have to admit, it pretty much is.

So what is the truck’s name? Rizzo. Why? Pink truck, pink lady.
