More than Half of Us Will Nickname Our Car — Dave’s Diary
I love the new Mercedes commercial with Santa sending the white cars to the folks on the nice list
and the red cars to the naughty. I thinks it’s a cute and effective ad. Our cars do reflect our personalities and that often includes the car’s nickname. A recent Automotive.com survey shows that 61% of car owners have named their car. The most popular name among the respondents of the survey was “Beast.” Other popular names include: Batmobile, Betsy, Big Red, Christine, Lucy, Penny and Silver Bullet. I admit to owning a Fox, Ox and T-Rex!
