This is Buttercup when I bought him 2-3 years ago.

Somehow 'Buttercup' just doesn't seem appropriate for the car that he is going to be.
Any suggestions?
I've thought about 'Ebony' but that's not carved in stone.

Hey Jerry, Lookin' good. I was just about to ask about black paint and what people are using. And then I see your post. Soooo, what are you using on Buttercup/ebony? I was thinking DuPont 99K. Let's hear from some of yall on your choice of Black paint.

Jerry, if there's anything consistent about you, it's your taste in air cleaners.

I think you should keep the name. A black car named Buttercup sounds like something you would own.

Good to hear from you Tex.
Since a Medallion/Rubber Seal distributor is only 1/2 mile from me, that is what I use. On this one we are using plain ole single stage urethane enamel.
Of course I don't do the paint and body work myself. I tried it once and decided to put my talents to easier tasks. I let my flunkies, uh, I mean compatriots do the hard work.

Jerry Forrester

That sounds good.
James, one of my compatriots, squirted the black stuff on last Sunday morning. We will wait 'til next Monday then we, I mean 'he' will start the color sanding and buffing.

That looks REALLY Good if you like the Sinister "Black", :( but it had a LOT more character and looked sharper in Yellow and White. :rolleyes:

I think Raven should work well. I'll admit I am predjudiced in that I knew a woman who was stunningly beautiful who had almost blue-black hair and that was the name her parents gave her at birth, her curves were almost as good as Buttercup's.

How in the world did you let a woman like that get away.
Yeah, I know. A woman like that is high maintenance. Even more that an old Stude.
My daddy always told me "Boy, if it's got tits or wheels, it's gonna give you trouble".

I was okay with her age being 30 and I 25, her having a husband made it difficult...

My mother said, "Testicles or tires" but hey, that's just Mom being Mom!

I agree with mbStude & StudeRich & I'd go for/sugest Blackie Buttercup.
& I also think the yellow & white was more characteristic, there's enough black Hot Rodded cars, but that don't matter since it aint my car, it'seriously neat now thou... ;)

I find that naming them only promotes jealously and bickering between them. Referring to them as (Color)POS seems to keep things on an even keel around the SOB enclave. ;):D Bob

I am against naming cars and do not name my own. In this case a name was requested for someone else's car, so I complied.

Dad had a cat that lived to be about 20 years old. When it died I called him to express my condolences. I knew he was okay when he said, "Funny thing about that cat, it never had a name, but why in the hell should you name something that's never gonna come to you when you call it." I've kinda adopted that attitude with cars. Mostly it's **%&##*!!! and that's on good days.

You guys have made some really good suggestions. Too good in my opinion. You have made it extremely difficult to make a decision.
I think I'll take Matt's offering and just stay with Buttercup.
Thanks to all who participated.

Plus Betty's already my Lark's name...however she looks like she'll be going away in the fairly near term, sigh...

I see you're in Georgia; "Georgia Rose" comes to mind...look up the old jazz ballad by that title and you'll see the connection...Of the names proposed so far I'm liking "Raven" best.
