We've given our cars names for 20 years or more. It began when we acquired a Ford Escort 1.4 from a relative. It was brown and slow and became known as sluggy. The next named car was a 406 Coupe, named Polly Peugeot. Others have been Alfie (Alfa) and Fifi (Fiat). At the moment we have Mick Jaguar (F type), Bubble (Abarth) and Lexie (the XE).

I suppose it was a way of differentiating rather than using 'my car' or 'your car', as either of us would take the most suitable car for the journey.

Although, thinking about it the ones she liked somehow became 'her car' and those she didn't like became 'my car' 🙄.

Mine comes from my love of the brain numbing cider Diamond White in my younger days and my surname being Wright.
