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.I've never really understood why so many people refer to their car as a "she". I am older than most, and it has been this way for as long as I can remember and probably was the same way well before my time. I rarely hear a vehicle called a "he". So why are vehicles considered to be inherently female, or to have a gender at all?
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.
