I notice in all the posts that people speak of their ridge almost as if it is a person. The only one I've seen that has a name for their ridge is ladyridge.

I will think of a name for mine but must give it plenty of thought. Had it for three days and still getting to know it. Once I get a good feel for my ridge's personality I will no longer refer to it as "it". But will assign an appropriate name.

To me, any good Ridgeline name MUST start with an R.

For example, Ruby Ridgeline, Roxy Ridgeline, Randy, Rodger, Roddy, Rodney, Ralph, Roscoe, Rex, Rebecca, Rox, Rocko, Ricky, etc.

But then I've always been for alliteration, evef if I can't spell it.

BTW, I'm reserving Ruby for my soon to be owned Red Ridge. In fact, Red is a pretty good name too.

My sister used to have a Dark Brown MustangII Carmen Ghia with that cute landau roof in buckskin. She called her Carmen. I thought that was cute.

I just woke up. So I'm stuck on the word cute. I apologize.

You did not realize that my Ridge does have a name. It's the short version of my screen name,( 2BUKU, The Ridgeline Raider), it is also my personalized license plate number! ;)

I call mine the UglyTruckling -- it's a term of endearment, of course. (Several family members quizzed me when I first bought it -- is it a truck? is it an SUV? is it a car? what do you call it?)

I have never quite understood the concept of naming a car/truck, but to each their own :) My honda element was named "the toaster" by my friends children, and that did stick......... :D

My Ridgeline's nickname is "Henry". My mother-in-law (who only decided to get her driver's license at the young age of 70 :eek: ) started it when she bought her CRV and called it "Charlie". Of course we had to name our vehicles..."Fred" for the F-150 and "Bob" for our little Toy Echo.

It's fun to talk about our vehicles using there nicknames when in public. I'm sure we've had some strange looks. :rolleyes:

I find naming my vehicle which provides safe passage for me and my family from point A to point B gives it a personal touch and allows me to be more caring and sensitive to her needs.
I got my first car in 1977 ( after testing and parallel parking in the dead of winter in Moms Maxi van for 1 year) and it was a 1977 AMC Gremlin. "HE" was white with a black stripe down the side and blue interior. Of course the interior was decked out with blue fur and panelling in the back. I did this myself and everyone thought I was nuts. Made me love it even more. :D Anyway, I name him Bobby McGee since it was one of my favorite songs at the time. Every car since has had a name and all my cars have had longevity with me or after.

A brand new '77 Gremlin! Were those prior to the bubble gremlins? I thought the later gremlins were reasonably fun looking. I think maybe they were ahead of their time. Dodge is taking chances like that now and it's paying off despite their crappy cars and trucks. I sat in a Dakota. It just has a SUPER cheap feel across the board.

Shoulder length hair, parted down the middle...super-wide-leg jeans...3-inch platform shoes...

And I wasn't even one of the "cool" kids in high school :cool: . Math grades too high I guess :rolleyes: .

I think all photographic records were destroyed. :D

Ugly Truckling is an excellent name. I call the Ridgeline in general a "cruck" -- or some people say "car-ruck" (two syllables instead of one). It's clearer than calling it a tar, anyway... or an SUT, which doesn't roll off the tongue.

I like Toaster for the Element -- that's a good name. :) Wish I could think of something clever for mine!
