Do you have a name for your car? You're not alone.
So popular is the trend of naming your car, that a recent RACQ survey found almost half of all drivers aged 16-24 had done just that, with women the most likely to personalise their ride.
“Many people have a special connection to their car, especially their first one,” RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said.
“So, we’re not surprised many drivers give them a nickname.
“Some of the results are quite creative but many of the nicknames are inspired by the car itself, particularly the colour or model.”
