I am having a issue here with my cruise buddies in Cleveland. They make fun of me and think it is unmanly to name a car. They all agree that Stuart is a fine car, but naming him Stuart is a little precious. Its just that Stuart feels like he has a personality, where my Geo feels like an appliance, and no one names a toaster.

Stuart is down for his nap now. I wish I could drive him everyday, but Cleveland Ohio is salt center USA>

Stuart B. Baker is his full name. I do not think a name like Thor or Road Warrior would suite a beige sedan.

I think you should change his middle initial to D...then he could be STU D. BAKER [:o)]

I never named a car myself (at least not a complimentary one), but my kids years ago somehow named my '53 "Happy Days Car" and it has kind of stuck.

Dick is right. Just tell them his name is "Stu". That's macho.

Speaking of the appliances, if I decide to get one of those new Scion xB rectangular box vehicles, it really won't deserve a human name. But it could be a really good appliance. Besides, why buy a new car with style in mind when I already have a Studebaker? Can't really beat that for style.

My '61 Hawk is named "Carrie's Curse".
Gave it that name way back in high school as it took all my time away from my girlfriend.
We've been going together and married for almost 35 years. Nothing's changed;)
Oh, the yellow truck has a name too.
It's called the "Yellow POS"...
Yep... Nuthin's changed, fer sure[:0]

Some suggestions for my Avanti:
Sherwood...after the man who had it built.
Raymond...after it's designer (or at least head designer)
Exxon Valdez...for its oil leak

Or maybe The Rat Pack...because driving it listening to the "real oldies" station (the only music I can pick up on AM)...takes me back to that era that I was far too young to experience personally (though I feel like getting a suit with a narrow tie to dress the part when I drive it).

Some of our cars have names.

The Silver Hawk is 'The Shadow'.(Solid black paint) The name came from the old radio show.

The '63 GT Hawk is 'Sweet Magnolia'. It's Ermine White and one of my grandma's cars.

The '51 coupe is 'Old Bullet'. (Kinda self explanitory. ;))

The Sky Hawk is 'Ferrous Oxide'. (it has rust issues. [xx(])

The '56 Power Hawk ('54 Commander coupe clone) is 'The Coupester'. My 6 year old cousin named and claimed it. [8D]

The '56 Champ two door is 'Charlotte', but we just call it 'The '56'.

My Scotsman is known as 'The Great Pumpkin', 'Orange Crate', and several other 'orange' related names.

I have too many now to name and and too short a memory to recall them anyway. Of course I could be like George Foreman and name them all "George". ;) When I bought my first one (a '49 2R5) I called it Clem. The second (a '46 M15A) I named it Hank. I soon had more vehicles than there were Studebaker brothers so I gave up.

The only exception is my '62 Champ which is named "Ole Yeller".

My Mum had a '56 Chevy wagon she named Bessie. My wife and I had a '72 Cadillac Fleetwood that we named The Queen Mary. She was always referred to as 'The Queen.' We always joked that two Hondas were necessary to park it. Kind of like tug boats. Actually, Hondas kinda look like tug boats...

Then there's Sweetie, a '62 Lark 4dr, whom I sent east to Kent in Michigan, and Poor old Frumpy the unwanted '52 (for whom I've yet to find a home), last (but not least) Pick-A-Truck the '62 Champ.

Lest we forget The Blue Witch, a '64 Wagonaire, who went to George in So. Oregon. Also La Poubelle, another '64 Wagonaire who also went to George.

I almost forgot my namesake, Grandmum's '62 Regal wagon, Studeclunker. Robin's egg blue with a dark blue interior. She was my favourite of all.

I tell folks that my Transtar's name is Pete, but I have a hard time actually using that name when talking about him/it. It's "Transtar or "truck" in casual coversation.

I DO like Ike for the '57 President. It would be GREAT if I could get a vanity plate that said that or ILKEIKE (I like Ike - for those of you too young to remember.[}:)])

I aften refer to the 58 wagon as "thundertub" in deference to it's rumbling dual exhauts and it's size!:D

The only car I ever named was the first one I had that someone gave me when I was 13 years old. It was a 40 Plymouth that I named Elouise. I even wrote it on the door. I just call all my Studebakers "Baby" as in "come on Baby, I know you can get me home".:D

I don't have a "I Like Ike" bumper sticker but I do have one from the 1964 election on my 64 Daytona. I use it as a quiz to see who can guess which canidate it is representing. Mr. Biggs can probably get it. I don't think I will post it here. I will make a new thread.

We've named the Lark "Barney" from the name on its dealer license plate frames :)

I had a 1960 Lark 6 two door named "Larky Lark" and my current Cruiser is "Cruiserdooze" but the brand Xs go unnamed. Dillo you might want to name that Scion xB "Algore."

I wouldn't say it's unmanly to name your Stude~ all of mine have/had names!!! Most were named by friends, or already had names when I got them...

One of my first cars was "Angel" a '58 Scotman wagon that was far from being one! My girlfriend at the time named her that because she was blue, and I had just joined the NAVY. I've often thought that Angel was jelious of the girl who named her- Once while picking up said girlfriend from the AmTrak station something under the dash shorted out on the OD cable, smoking her out while I tried to stop it! I fixed the trouble, and drove home hoping we'd get there!!! I later gave this car up as 'partial' trade for Sweet Pea. The next day she was sold off again~ I don't know where she is now, but fear the worst...

My wife and I named "Stella" together. Stella means "star" hence Starlight Coupe. Not to mention I liked the name tie-in to "A Streetcar Named Desire." You don't know how many times I yelled "STELLA!!!" in rage when trying to replace her rear motor mounts![xx(]:D

There's an old tune - Stella by Starlight, Eric. I doubt it's a tune you'd be known to hum, but it's not a bad song. Maybe you should get a copy of it to have playing when you've got Stella on display somewhere.:D

That reminds me, when I bought my 62 GT Hawk in 1965, the song "Hang on Sloopy" was popular and I named it Sloopy.

When I bought my '64 HT for the second time (I'm the 5th and 9th owner) Dustybob dubbed it "Rerun". It stuck. My '64 Cruiser was "Rainman" because it was "an excellent driver" (you had to see the movie). BTW, Dustbob's GT Hawk is "Thumper" which relates back to a clutch problem years ago.

Not bad. Not bad. I just did a quick iTunes search... Tons of great artists have either sung or played Stella by Starlight. Folks like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Tony Bennett. Now... which version do I go for?![8D]

My wife likes to name my cars. She named the 60 Lark - Sweat-Sue, the 51 Champion she named Bubbles. And now the 56 Power Hawk, that I don't even have yet she has already named Rosie. I am thinking that as long as she keeps nameing them, I am safe to continue my collection [?][:0]

I never understood or cared for naming cars. Even when I had ten cars at a time, I could keep them straight when referring to them, without pet names. I have owned more than 50 Studebakers and more than 100 cars and the only one that picked up a name somehow was my 1959 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special (the white whale).

Gee, let's see, now; my oldest son Dennis, in 1970. named his first car, a '59 Lark, "Sherman"[B)] after the tank. He has continued to name every Lark he has owned, 10 or 15 of them. He has also named my green Lark "Kermit"[^] and his sister's pink Lark "Miss Piggy[:I] Then there is the Saint:(, previously owned by a priest, and Black Beauty (self explanatory).[8] My daughter has even named her '07 Expedition "Xena" because it looks like one tough Ford.
