I think cars name themselves. You're gonna have to drive it for a while. It'll come to you. Maybe.

Cars have thier own personalities. Unfortunately, Japanese cars are fairly souless and lacking personality (until they get old). The price you pay for reliability.

I bought a Nissan once. Great car. Fun to drive. Never gave me a problem and it never got named.

However, if you are determined to name it before knowing if it has any quirks—(cue up the Jefferson Airplane) how about "Plastic Fantastic?"

Really tried to get JuiceBx, but it was already taken. I ended up ordering:

OJ BOX

Mahalo!

As many of you know, I've been driving around with no plate for almost a year. I procrastinated as I hate the DMV, so when I finally went to pick up the plate, I was informed by the DMV that they destroyed the plate "OJ BOX". I had to choose another plate on the fly....so almost a year later the plate on my car is:

MAITAI4

I'm a lot happier with this plate. It fits the car, I guess just like naming a baby, sometimes you've just got to wait...

Coincidentally, today is the 1 year anniversary of driving my orange monster off the lot.

Congrats on the name. I know what you mean about the DMV...disorganized chaos with long wait times. I too had a personal license plate made for my little electric car and procrastinated, but picked it up minutes before getting tossed in the destroy bin. Mine says "VAMPTKI" so now I am going to decal that baby up. Wanted to get a custom paint job but couldn't afford it.

So, after a year of driving your car, how do you like it? They look so utilitarian...bet it comes in handy for hauling tikis and such. Does it get good gas mileage? Got spinners...air shocks?...JKG.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY OJ BOX
