So why are vehicles considered to be inherently female, or to have a gender at all?
    All my cars have always been "she" when I refer to them. And yes...I have named my cars. My first was a black on black 1991 Ford Taurus SHO that I named Brandy. I had a thing for Brandy at the time (the singer). My current Civic Si is named Tiffany. She's much more refined than Brandy, and is a bit more upscale than my old Ford Taurus SHO. It makes sense to me.

    No why do a lot of people refer to cars as "she's"? This is my personal opinion.

    They are constantly needing to be taken care of (think oil changes, tune ups) , will not take you anywhere unless you take care of them first (fuel them up), but when you take care of them...they take care of you.

    My car came from the factory gender free. I have no mechanism to make it male, female, or gay. Is gay a gender? Some people think so. They're f--ked up-----figuratively or unnaturally.

    The 60s VW Bug that my mom used to drive she named it Putt-Putt. I think it was considered an "it" at that time.

    Since my first post in this thread, I have completely forgotten what name I was referring to that I supposedly gave to my Civic. Just goes to show you how a) unimportant names are for my cars, and/or b) how unimportant a name is for a Civic.

    However, my MINI had a name (male). It kind of konked me on the head - I didn't have to think about it.

    My Beetle has a name. When I got the car I asked my daughter what she thought the car's name should be. She came up with Ginger. The car is red, as she had recently been to Scotland on a work/study program, so that name came to her pretty quickly.

    Also, I want to thank Snowood for bringing back some of these funny older threads. Always good for a chuckle.

    Mine is Margot. Figured Harley was too obvious/cliche for a Rallye, so went with the actress's name
