I'm not into naming my cars, but I think my '65 Jetstar 1 is named "Holy Crap". That's what I keep hearing when someone looks at the interior and sees the 4-speed shifter.

The Beast

Mine is 'The Beast' because when I bought it, it was totally unsafe to drive on the road, tiller steering, an unsure distributor, and the unholy growl it made when I first floored it.

All Toronado's get called Torque a nado

1969 98 convertible:


Beulah after my grandmother - stubborn and cantankerous, but I love her anyway

I haven't had enough time with my Cutlass Supreme or Malibu to name yet, but I am leaning toward "boar" for my Malibu since it is such a beast and "Prissy" for the Cutlass Supreme since it is fragile and needs protection

This car makes me sad. Super clean workmanship, but if this is a factory original 67 W-30 (one of 502), I have no nice words for how its been stripped of its dignity.

But something tells me its not original. I think its a 66 air cleaner.



ANYWAY, back to the topic at hand.

1972 Cutlass Supreme: "Blue"; viking blue with blue interior, white top
1972 Cutlass Supreme: "Crush" ; Orange, 455/400/posi equipped.
1971 Cutlass Supreme convertible: Was going to be Raggedy Ann... until I found out that its factory Triple White. Will be "Snow White" or maybe "Pearl" when I'm done. (Unless Disney says something about it )

My parents former black 87 trubo T-Type Regal, we simply referd to as the , "Buick", some folks called it the "GN" or "Granny"

The white(and rusty) 1973 Toroando we had from 1983-1988, was the, "TANK".
I call my red and gold 68 Toronados as "W-34" or the "68s"

My AMC Eagles, 81 SX/4(2.5 4-cylinder) and 83 Egale wagon9258 six), my parents 1980 AMC Eagle 2-door sedan plus mine 1985 and 1986 Chevy Spetums (Isuz I-Mark) I called "Sh*Tboxes"

I came home one day to open the garage and find my '69 442 gone and my wife's car in the drive I got a cold brew and waited. She pulled up with my daughter and I asked her why she took the Olds? "I like taking THE HOTROD to school,the kids love it." Couldn't blame her and the name stuck.

I was originally going to call my 442 "silver lining", but while I was working on it I heard the Grateful Dead's Touch of Grey on the radio. When I heard the line about every silver lining's got a touch of grey, well it just seemed right.


So now the 442 is "A Touch of Grey"

The '67 Delmont has always been "Big Red" for obvious reason.

Nice. There were quite a few classic drag cars with that name.
