Talking Why Did You Name Your Focus That?

I dont no aobut you guys and gals, but i took along time to name my baby. And theres a good story behind her name.
I want to make this a thread about the reason you named your car, what you did.

My cars name is Penelopi. Named after the greek wife of Odysseus, who in the twenty years Odysseus was gone, turned down many men hoping her true love would return.
This name fits my car becasue just after i got her, i lost my license for an entire year. She sat in my driveway that entire year waiting for her TRUE driver to return. My dad took her to work and back, my freinds drove her with me in the car, but she never quite purred like she does for me now. So there she sat and waited for me.

Thus, the name Penelopi was bestowed unto her.

Well, I call my car the Lord of the Skies, which in Spanish means "El señor de los cielos". El señor de los cielos was or still is, nobody knows the real truth, a Mexican drug dealer who's real name was or is, Amado Carrillo Fuentes. Amado Carrillo literally translated into English means Beloved Little Car. I know it sounds odd but in Spanish it doesn't. So at the end, my fofo is my beloved little car, The Lord of the Skies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amado_Carrillo_Fuentes

"FoFo"

saw it on these forums, sounds cool, and thats about it

Fo=Ford
Fo=Focus
Fo+Fo = FoFo

Yes not very original...but neither was my last car's name.. A Mercury Grand Marquis...I either called it by "Grand Monkey" or "The Merc"

Anyway
ammm no estoy muy seguro de eso, pero por lo menos aki en Tijuana si se utiliza algo asi como, "mira ese pinche carrillo", y stoy seguro ke tambien en otras partes de Mexico, alomejor es mas propio de las personas de Costa Rica pero de que en Mexico se usa, si se usa.

Both my Focuses are named GoldDigger, cuz ever since we got the first shes been costing me more then any other car we own lately ( plus there both gold color) lol

Lets see I've owned the first for roughly 2-3 years and already spent double what I paid for it when I bought it.. the second which I bought not even a week ago is already grinning for one heck of an expensive overhaul ( new engine, new interior parts, and a makeover only my Ex would ever think of (if I was around she usually got the deluxe and gave me the sad puppy face, in other words Pay the $100-200 bill)

hehehe Once they both settle down robbing me blind I may change there names
