Name My1966 Chevy Pick-up

I have been cruising the streets of Portland with my trusty friend, an 1966 Orange  Chevy pick-up truck for 10 years now. We've scored some serious side-of-the-road treasure. Even at 46 years old this classic turns heads when we're on the hunt. One time while garage saling, I came back to find a man's legs sticking out from under her; he just had to check out her engine!

What I am trying to say here is we've been through a lot and this classic needs a name. Some names haven't stuck (Mabel, Gertie and Gus). Now, dear reader, I turn to you; help me name my truck!

Leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.  Bragging rights could be yours if the name sticks.

Look forward to our monthly "Adventures of (Name of Truck)" posts.

Here are a few photos to help you get better acquainted:

Gosh, she's a beaut! I love naming my cars. I wish I met her when I was up there. It sounds like she's hauled a lotta loads. One name that comes to mind is "Lolo" or Lois-an oldie but goodie (oh, and my mom's name :D). Or you could go a little more on the nose and name her "Pumpkin"? Like I said, it's hard to name "someone" you haven't met...standing by to see whatcha choose! Good luck!

I think Creamsicle would make a pretty good name from the looks of her.

Q! Joy here... Gotta moniker for ya!

Penelope...Penny for short. Because she's the color of a new penny and because a whole lotta "pennies" is what you save (for yourself and for those who follow you lead) by doing what you do!
