Say Hello to My Little Friend
In light of the drive I'll be making (at least temporarily) to Bloomington, I decided to get rid of my 2000 Nissan Altima with 90K miles on it and get a new car.
Initially I thought I'd buy a used Honda but the prices of the used were just a couple thousand off the new car prices and the interest rates were way lower for a new car. So I bit the bullet and got a new one. I love it, I've only had it 6 days and it's been years since I had a car payment, so ask me how much I like it again when I make that first payment on August 30th - I might be singing a different tune!
So, I'm really feelin' like this car needs a name. Don't you? Something like Sharky. Doesn't the front of it look like a shark head? So, announcing, the official "NAME ANDREA'S CAR CONTEST!" Get creative folks, I just might pick the name you suggest!

Great White Shark is considered the most dangerous of the sharks.

The great white shark has a conical instead of flattened snout, black eyes, and large, serrated, arrowhead-shaped teeth.

White sharks swallow unchewed creatures and objects half their size, especially seals, dolphins, turtles, other sharks, chunks of whale, fish, and ship's garbage.

name it safe and boring and nothing exciting ever happens to it or its driver.
Chauff'e `a blanc
which means 'White Hot'
or, as in th efdirst suggestion, something boring?
Blanche which translates to white woman.
(sorry)
but, still.
Blanche is kind'a boring. Good idea.

OMG...I can't believe you already have White Lightnin' on there!!!

That's Ryan's and my version of "SHAKE and BAKE" from Talladega Nights!!!

We say "It's like White Lightnin'" all the time!!!

That's got to be it!!! It was meant to be. Or at least that's waht I'm calling it!!!

Are you dizzy from sucking in that new car smell yet? I would be.....LOVE IT!!!

I'm do like "White Lightnin".

Maybe "Pork Tornado"...the other white meat.

How about "Pearl" or "Ranch". You could make it feminine and name it "The Ranchess".

Naming Cars is a tacky thing to do. Maybe even bordering on trashy. Definitely hillbilly. Keep it dignified.
