Kaylee is the name of a character played by the actress Jewel Staite on the short-lived TV show "Firefly".
I lol'd. Yup...that'd be a dream of mine right there...

She's such a cutie. She's actually 9 years older than me too...don't care.

I've had my fair share of clever license plates too...

My MazdaSpeed3 was "6SPD3" 'cause it was a manual 6 speed MazdaSpeed3...

My Fusion (and now my GTI) was/are "GMEASEC" (gimme a sec(ond)
The Fusion because it was lowered and just plain slow. The GTI because...well I like the plate. LOL

Hell it aint bad luck naming your car a human name lol. I named my Olds Brian (from Family guy) because its a dog, drinks alot, and is white with black and hints of red lol.

I named my Focus Jerry because I am just bad with names and it looks like a car a Jerry would drive :p

It took me about a week to name my Focus but her name is Fiona, I refer to her as Fi when I'm talking about my car/ to her. In the times when you do something really stupid and have to apologize so she doesn't get mad and break something expensive. Like some have said, drive it around for a while the name will come to you. And cars don't always have to be girls I had an old POS MX6 that was called Joe.

I always name my cars after racing drivers.

My Focus is Jackie, after Jackie Stewart, given that he won three Formula 1 world championships with the Ford DFV engine, and worked as a brand ambassador for Ford after retiring. Plus, he was an advocate for safety, so I figured that couldn't hurt either.

My previous car was Jacques, after Canada's only F1 champion, Jacques Villeneuve.

My 10-day old SE is named Daniel-San. Why?

Mr. Miyagi: "Daniel-San. You FOCUS!!!!"

My F350 is Tom Dually. That's the way we roll up in here.
