This is our first car. We haven't named her yet, but she drives like a dream.

She's a 2003 Crown Victoria. She served as a police car is Toronto and as a result she was pretty much bare when we bought her. She has 270k on her, which is a lot, but she still hasn't given us any trouble.

Isn't she gorgeous? Any name suggestions?

A veteran of police work with 270K. You need a tough one, so I would call her Margaret Thatcher.

Hehe! I bet everyone thinks it's a ghost car when you're out driving around! It looks like she is in a not too bad condition, take care of her and have fun!

I had a white car I called The Ghost.

I could tell right away it was a cop car, lol. It's probably doing well (even with so many miles on it) because cop cars are very well maintained by the departments.

kk~

Haha that's so awesome.

I agree, you need a total tough sounding name.

Although I'm at a loss as to what, haha.

Don't get angry when people start being really slow and cautious around you...I've seen several people driving cop model cars and having fits behind the wheel because traffic slows down on the highway and whatnot.

I'm not good with names...I just call my car...my car? Haha.

LOL @ madmilt! My boyfriend also owns the car, and he shot this name down. Completely understandable. What guy wants a car with a name like Margaret? I would totally totally love to name it after Margaret Thatcher though.

Actually, to everyone that said people think we're a ghost car; we get waved at all the time! Mostly from Ambulances/firetrucks/other Crown vics. Basically anyone in the emergency response field. We get some pretty amusing looks and glances, and as an upside, people move out of your way on the highway when they see you coming up really fast behind them :D

Just don't let your boyfriend become a "whacker" where he adds antennas that don't do things and lighting to the inside.
