do you name your pinto if so whats its name?
« on: May 28, 2013, 12:38:35 AM »
i personally name every thing i drive ,ride,work on. it all comes from my grandpa ,and since today is the day of memmorium this little tid bit came to mind.he said"if you name your cars and machines it will be treated like it is respected or loved" he also said a car or bike, machine, would announce its sex and all you had to do was listen.  so my current stable of friends and lovers are as follows. my 72 sedan as a pinto was named bean as it was brown and a pinto"pintobean"the c4 corvette that now resides under the before mentioned 72 sedan was" Lucy",after her body was cut off it became "fun".and now the two together are "pinette" my 04 supercrew ford is "hector" my01 mazda 3000 is "lil grey" and mmy 96 cbr  is 'rat rocket" and the crazy butt quad i built is "yamauki"

Only a few of my cars have names. My '74 Duster has had her name "MOONAGE DAYDREAM" airbrushed down the quarter panels since the late 70's.
 
My Grabber Orange '07 Mustang became "Orange Crush" when I hit the wrong station on my XM radio & REM's Orange Crush was in the 1st moments of the song. The car had less than 500 miles on it when the name came to her.
 
My '80 Runabout got the name "Callisto" after the mythological nymph that transformed into a bear as an act of revenge because the build plan for this car transformed 20 times in as many months & I swear I'm gonna finish this car or set it ablaze out of spite.
 
My other cars may get named if the name presents itself....
'73 Sedan (I'll get to it)
'76 Wagon driver
'80 hatch(Restoring to be my son's 1st car)~Callisto
'71 half hatch (bucket list Pinto)~Ghost
'72 sedan 5.0/T5~Lemon Squeeze

According to what I was told when I bought her, my '72 Pinto Squire was named Priscilla back when she was brand new.  I figure if she has answered to that for 41 years, then Priscilla she shall remain.  My 2012 Lincoln MKT is nicknamed "The Hearse" because with its tuxedo black paint, it pretty much looks like a hearse!  My other three vehicles are not named at present but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any.  The vehicles are a toreador red/sand Ford F150 stepside Lariat 4x4, a magnolia (beige) Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, and a dark green BMW Z3 with a tan convertible top.  Ideas?

As a lot of the Pinto Peeps know, my red '71 sedan is the venerable Ruby RedHot. My '73 green wagon had lots of names that just didn't stick 'til War Wagon came to stay. I figured that name fits because a) she is that dark metallic green that the U.S. Armory cars near where I grew up sported, and b) she has a Naval station sticker on her windshield and an Air Force base sticker on her front bumper (a donation from another '73). The '74 Runabout is Wildfire because her coppery paint just glows with a fire all its own when the sun hits it and her sister the Grabber blue Squire is the unflappable Moxie BluBelle. My non-ford is Rodeo Girl because, well... she's a Rodeo. lol Named after a Tanya Tucker song.  :)

name the f 150 martin the rolls beatrice and the bmw august

I'll take your suggestions under advisement.  Do you care to share the reasoning behind those names?  Another friend suggested "Cassie" for the BMW.  Her reasoning: same color scheme as a green bean casserole... shortened to Cassie!  I think the Rolls-Royce deserves a British-sounding name.  I've thought about either "Felicity" or "Prunella", after two of my favourite British actresses.

Well... there's also Edwina and... (darn! I can't remember her bestie's name on Absolutely Fabulous. lol ) I was thinking Magnolia would be a nice name. I know it's not properly English, but it's her color... and it IS such a grand name and flower for a grand car. To me, it suggests a genteel, classy persona that's decidedly Southern... kinda like the blue bloods of the FFVs (First Families of Virginia). Magnolia makes me think of a sweet but potent perfume that wafts through the summer breeze and puts me in a peaceful easy mood.  And if THAT'S not enough... remember the English habit of naming their daughters after flowers (Hyacinth, Iris, etc.) or am I thinking of Keeping Up Appearances? lol ;D

Well, if you're thinking of Keeping Up Appearances, that would narrow it down to "Hyacinth", "Daisy", or the inimitable  ::)  "Our Rose"!  Or maybe my Rolls is of 'somewhat' male gender... then it could be "Sheridan"!

I chose Martin for the  F 150  because its manly yet refined as old as it is. Beatrice for the rolls because its old arrogant and sounds like control but soft. as for the b.m.w. august could go either way as far as sex but i thought of vibrant, angst, spoiled care  free. also thats the names that popped when i thought of the marque

I rather like your suggestion of "Martin" for the pickup.  As you said, it is manly yet refined, plus it could also be considered a reference to my preferred guitar brand: C. F. Martin! 

If my Rolls were a Silver Cloud then I think Beatrice would fit perfectly, but (at least in my opinion) a Silver Spur is much too modern-looking to be a Beatrice.  I want something to reflect her British heritage and at the moment I'm leaning toward "Maggie"...  A derivitive of the colour name (Magnolia); and as a way of paying homage to the great British actress, Dame Maggie Smith; and to a lesser degree (and a far greater stretch), Princess Margaret and PM Margaret Thatcher. 

The jury is still out on naming the BMW and I am still open to suggestions.  I'm inclined to say it is female, but she is no lady... she's given to running around topless out in public! :o

Dwayne, your Beemer might be a Giselle! lol Perhaps Lady Godiva because she shows it all! lol


As for Maggie... if there was a May in reference to her, you could call her Maggie May,... or go the Beatles spelling and call her Maggie Mae.  Alas, those two personas weren't exactly "dignified ladies". lol  ;D

The RR line has always unashamedly reflected, in my opinion, good taste.  Bentley motor cars however, are gorgeous.

Hmmm... wasn't aware of Janis Joplin's Rolls (her Porsche is legendary), but there are definitely interesting ones out there: most notably, John Lennon's and Liberace's.  Beauty, of course, is in the eyes of the beholder but I respectfully disagree with your list of ghastly cars, with the exception of the Saab.  Now they were ugly!  My apologies to any and all Saab aficionados!

I actually had the opportunity to purchase a Bentley Turbo R prior to buying my Silver Spur, and it was a VERY nice car.  Somehow or another, though, it just never appealed to me in the way the Rolls-Royce does.  If however, I were buying  new one today the Bentley would win out because it is much truer to its heritage.  BMW has taken Rolls-Royce in a totally different direction.  I think their idea was to harken back to the days of the Silver Clouds with their Phantom, but I personally think they look ridiculous!  Goodwood will never match the elegance of the cars from Crewe.

I have called my pinto "Ginger" on several occasions. Not necessarily "named" her that, but I do use that name instead of "the pinto" from time-to-time.

Came up with that name because mine is red, and another name for a "red-head" is Ginger.

My 1972 Extreme Pro Street Blown Ford Pinto is called "THE BEAST".  It was a beast at the drag strip at 1000 HP with best time of 9.98 seconds and 148 MPH in the quarter mile.

It was a beast of over 2 years work to change it to street legal (mostly electrical stuff) and get the HP down to a manageable 612 turning a new posi center section with 3:70 street gears.

No one has yet to challenge "THE BEAST" on the street.  They just shake their heads and give me a thumbs up.

Well, I simply call my 1980 hatchback "tha 80" cause the front clip throws people off. The 1976 trunk is called the "UAV".

First off, HI! It's been a long time. LOL I still come and read the forum here and there and am in contact with Fred a lot. I just kind of got out of the Pinto kick for the time being and got into the VW thing again. I still have my Pintos and love them all though.

Here are some of the names

The Green Machine




The Ghost




Nellie Belle



Bella, actually my favorite Squire. Still needs to get it's motor R&Rd though. She is sitting below the Green Machine in the Pinto Shed.



Mad Max.



This next one is the only Pinto I have currently registered right now. The rest are all non opped. This one had a name that Becky and I came up with and I hate to say it, I don't remember what it was, mainly because we started calling it it's new name for what it is. LOL It has a big dent in the passenger door jamb and I bumped into a telephone poll backing up once and put a dent in the rear and messed up a prestine bumper (yah I was mad at myself). This Pinto is the best little Pinto we ever bought and just started up. It starts after sitting forever and it runs like a champ. This is also the car we loan out if a friend needs to borrow a car. We tell them they can borrow the "beater Pinto"! :D  It has been getting some love the last couple days as I have been driving it while I work on my bus. It was so nice to just pull up to a store, get out, leave the windows down, and walk in. Don't have to worry about locking it up! Nobody wants to steal an AM radio! LOL

The Beater Pinto!


I have others but they currently don't have names and are not running. Here is a pic of the Pinto Shed. It has 5 Pintos and 1 Maverick in it. (older pic because Green Machine is now on top of Bella.)

The collection in the "Pinto Shed" is the coolest thing ever. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I had a Green 75 Runabout that I never quite got running. It was called the Green Zombie. No name for the current Brown 73 Runabout but my SAAB resents being lumped in with the world's ugliest cars... it's just exceptionally frumpy.
