Almost everyone names their boats, and proudly displays it on the stern.
Some dudes, have names for their pickups.
And, I'm sure that most of us have a name for our tractors.
For some reason, we continue to describe our rides in the
forums as %$#& with ^%#&^.

After diner, do you say to the wife, I'm going out to the garage to change
the oil in %$#& w/^%#&^?
No you don't.
You have a name for it, and enjoy the look you get from the wife. She
looks at you like you have 3 eyes, right.

So, post a name, picture, and an explaination.

I don't have names for my machinery, even though each one seems to have a personality all its own.

Thanks,, I needed the laugh!

I have pretty much taken to either using the name/number or using the generic her/she/ole girl. Not very original, but it works.

My dad, who's name is Dan, has a ford 8n he calls Henry (after Henry Ford) and a oliver77 he calls oliver. One day his neighbor asked him if he could pull a fallen tree out of the creek on his property. My father of course was glad to do it and started old henry up. The tree was to big and heavy for henry so he went and got oliver, bigger tractor with loaded tires and wheel weights. Oliver pulled it out without to much trouble. A couple days later my father got a thank you card in the mail with with a gift card to Tractor Supply Co. The card read, Dear Dan, Henry and Oliver....

My old napper rear engine riding mower is Joe, a good friend of mine sold me Joe a few years ago and his wife named it Joe after my friends father who bought it brand new. And it was funny my wife and I were watching Forest Gump nd when the movie showed tom hanks mpwing the grass my two year old yelled JOE. Not uite the same but dang close the handle bars are about the only difference between the two.

Now the Wards is called the Wart for now till we give it an official name, my old f250 is Bertha.

Well, you got me thinking. I always used to say that a car/truck would perform better if it had a name. So, maybe I need to start naming them. I will let you know how it goes.

I haven't named any of my tractors but I have named my truck .. does that count ?

Her name is Dorthy andI call her Dot.
That can also stand for "dumb old truck", depending on whether or not I'm having trouble with her.

I think I have named every Car, Truck & Tractor I've ever owned with Female names.
. My Most memorable one is Definitely Big Bertha. She was a 1951 Hough Front end loader. Allways regreted selling her. When I Bought my first 1951 David Bradley , My Wife took one look at her and said, " Well, She's no Big Bertha, I tell you that." So I named her Little Bertha.

I don't name my tractors but had to come up with a way to distinguish which pickup I'm referring to so I call them by color.
There is:
red and black, a 1984 F250 4X4.
maroon and silver, a 1988 F150 2 wheel
ole blue, a 1975 F250 2 wheel
blackie, a 1986 Chebby c10 2 wheel
The I have another Ford but I never drive it. I call it dually because it is a 1985 F350 dually diesel. It is also blue but I already have a blue truck :-/
Then I have the GMC Suburban I take to tractor shows because it pulls better than the others and it has lotsa room inside.
