Your car’s just another member of the family, right?  That’s why he (or she) often gets a name, just like the people and animal members. On ERIE’s Facebook page, we asked what your car is named – and why. Here’s what some of you said:

The Silver Bullet, because it resembles one in both color and shape.” – Ayrn H.

Stretchy McVroom-Vroom. My daughter chose it.” – Jodi R.

“My daughter owned a Malibu named Barbie! Right after we had to take Jean-Claude GrandAm to the junkyard.” – Nancy J.
