Today is, ‘Name Your Car Day’. So I must ask…….’Do you name your cars???
Some stats on car naming.
20% of people have a name for their car (AutoTrader.com)
– 44% of people have a nickname for their car (Cooper Tires)
– 79% of people remember the name they gave their first car (Carfused.com)
– 93% of people can remember the color of their first car while only 88% can recall the name of the first person they kissed. (Carfused.com)
I name my cars for sure! I talk to them too but different story. I didn’t name my first car. Not really sure why as it was definitely a place I frequented often and it SHOULD have been named.
The second car I ever bought myself was a black Toyota Corolla, 5 speed. His name was Bob Marley.
My current car is a white Toyota 5 speed. Her name is Trixie and she is named after Speed Racer’s girlfriend. (remember that cartoon?)
Oh……and I definitely DON’T remember the name of the first person I kissed. Do You?
