they probably refer to it as its proper technical name:tetchmeister said:So how do you refer to your car when choosing which to take somewhere?
"let's take the white one?".
So do you name your children?wellfan said:No, as both our cars are white. Just say lets take the Fiat or the Vauxhall.Maybe my post was a bit cheeky but the OP did ask.
I have owned dozens of cars and never felt the urge to name any of them. Also I do not know of anyone who has named their car.
Maybe it is something peculiar to those living south of the border. No racism accusations please, just thinking out loud. I have noticed that Fiat 500 owners do also like to name their cars, however, this car is mainly bought by females. So maybe also a female thing.
Edit. Wife has just reminded me that I did have a name for my last car, a Fiat Grande Punto. It was referred to as that Italian pile of s..te.
