Who can tell me about the tradition of naming your race car with a woman's name?

Thanks.

Let's see, compared to a mistress, girlfriend or Wife, a race car:

  • Takes up as much, if not more time.
  • Costs just as much, if not more for up-keep.
  • You can be just as passionate about.
  • Can be just as tempermental, if not more so.
  • Often has as sexy lines as any of the aforementioned.
  • And you ride (in) it.

Given the above, I don't see how you cannot name a race car with a woman's name!

Just keep end mind the rate at which these relationships last.....better name it after your dog. :lol: Your car will be much more loyal, obedient and happy to see you.
