Is your car a "he" or a "she?"

Another random question... Jejeje. My computer's broke, so I'm just sitting on my crappy laptop surfing the forums, cause I can't do much more then that. But anyway, you know how people refeer to their cars in a masculine or feminine voice, so I wonder how you guys see our cars? I know my car is a "he." I never seen anything feminine about it. When people refeer to a T-Bird as "her," I wanna tell them, "Excuse me, that's a him, thank you."

I know, I know, stupid discussion. But hey, I'm bored. I'm gonna kill the person who came up with that damned worm that won't even let me boot up my main computer even with a boot disk.... ::cocks gun:: Raawwrr!

My cars don't have names, and when they do, it's mostly expletives. This much I *do* know.

The '95 GT is a boy, for sure. Through and through, this car has been nothing buit a bastard, one that sucks the life and finances right out of me. I love it none the less, but that's something that a nice young female wouldn't do. Furthermore, the car is hardheaded. That's a male trait. And it thinks it's the freakin alpha dog too. So yeah, it's *definitely* a boy, 99% of the time, it's a prick.

The '89 LX, on the other hand, is a girl. OMG, this is so weird to explain. Basically, long story short, the car was owned from 1989-2002 by an elderly couple. It was stored in a barn, and driven to such fun filled events and places as the "Yacht club". It hung out with all sorts of elite people, and was bone stock with 15,300 miles when we got it. The car is triple white. It's so clean it's almost sickening. Literally not a mark on it. Therefore, the LX has an attitude. It's "prissy"......like that damn hen in Looney Tunes. Gets on my nerves at times, almost like the car is too good for *me*! So that was in definitely a female, and a high maintenance one at that.

FWIW, I *never* refer to them as "she" or "he". It's always "The GT", "The LX" or "them".

LOL Sounds female to me!!!

My car has no gender, its an inanimate object so is referred to as "it". Though I do usually refer to it as "the Tbird" or "the bird".

And like many shadetree mechanics, it does tend to earn other less pleasant names at times.

I always refer to the cougar as "her", "the Cougar", or "the Cougie".

Why "her" I dunno. But, I'm pretty sure this is the most trouble free relationship I've ever had though

Everyone calls mine THE Cougar. But I think the Cougar is a "she". Before I changed the fuel pump, it would always get a little moody at the same time every month, no word of a lie.

"She aint a Cadillac and she aint a Rolls, but there aint nothin wrong with the radio"

Of course everyone loves a hard worker, they do all the work!

My Thunderbird is definitely a female. My F-100 I think I decided was masculine once it was rolling, but the other day I got in and said "Let's go, darlin'" and that was just awkward for both of us.

Neither of them has a name, that's too much of a commitment.

My first car, the 96 Thunderbird, was definantly female....Her name was Elaine...she had class & style.

My second car, the red 2001 focus, was an evil, evil woman named Christine. She just wouldn't die...couldn't be destroyed. I tried to get rid of her, but she came back....

My third car, the Orange 2004 Mustang....I'm not really sure. I called it "The General" for quite a while.....becuase.....you know, the color! I guess it seeems like it's a dude, but I'm not really sure....OH I GOT IT! MY MUSTANG'S NAME IS PAT! IT'S PAT! IT'S PAT! IT'S PAT!

my bird is a her, if you ever listened to me talking to her you would figure it out by the female dog term

our white 03 silverado and white 93 f150 are usually referred to as the white truck. when asked which white truck, normally the main drivers name is used....our trucks have no gender

Owner, for some strange reason, has decided to spend her money on Photography Equipment. Preferably Canon. Any chance of Donations to a poor college Equine Science student? hehe

I can try, can't I?....

Well, I got my 'Bird and the GTP from the same person (g/f), so she kinda decided for me. The T-Bird was a girl because even though her rear end was loose, I loved being inside her all the time.

The GTP is a sexless, heartless, wallet-sucking demon.

i think my 02 GT is a guy. its more angular, reminds me of some muscular angry dude at the gym. now if it was more curvy like that of a 94-98, itd be a girl. plus it roars, like a dude when he explains to his buddies "dude this hemi at the track last night, so loud, like BRAHHHHHHHHHHH BRAHHHHHHHHHHHHH, when it revved at the line it was like Brah BRAHHHH!" i think my car likes to backtalk sometimes to me, like "hey man, you really need to blow me, honestly." and im like "someday my friend, some day....." but he might undergo a sex change to a sleeker look, roush stg3 kit and GT500 silver/black stripes scheme and named "Eleanor".

my 97 eclipse gst was definately a chick. reffered to my friends as "Dizzim"(longhand pronounciation of DSM). i referred to her as slut, as she took 20psi like a little ***** and came back for more. plus the curves of a 2g, and the tail that looks like a chick at the club with the tightest body and the roundest most perfect *** that you could ride all night, and the slanted eyes in front that looked all seductive.

i think my tbird was also feminine. velvet was her name(after the song, Black Velvet". she was a big ***** though, the kind youd **** but probably wouldnt tell your homies about, nor was she any type of eye candy, but she sure was comfortable when you two was ridin it, a chick like you could **** for hours and not get tired or back pains cause she knew how to move in teh sack.
