    quote: 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
    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".

    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...

                      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.

                      the BerStuda Triangle

                      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                          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.
