I've noticed that several Packard owners (like me) have nicknames for their automobile.
Ernie Vitucci refers to his as "Miss Prudence".

I've been calling mine "Best Other" ever since I got several trophies under that heading. Trophies were awarded to Best Ford or Best Chevy and I always fell under Best Other.

My wife refers to my car as "My mistress" and declared that we should name her something appropriate to the era. We chose Evelyn.

My wife names my cars:
1955 Clipper Custom (owned 21 years) Jezebel
1940 160 Touring Sedan (owned 14 years) Bathsheba

I guess you could say she's jealous of the time I spend with the cars.
