    Best name I've had was the Bobopposite. I thought about calling it SHET but Somewhat Heavy Equipment Transport wasn't as catchy

    My M928A1 has become named "Yeller". Someone referred to her as Old Yeller in reference to her (ugly) paint color, but it stuck!

    "I'm in this weird predicament where I know where every grease zerk on an M939 series truck is, but can't even fix a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower. Is that any indicator?"

    The Ward LaFrance M1A1 Heavy Wrecker is named "Papa's Lil' Home Wrecker". (Appropriate risque' WWII bare-bosomed nose art pending completion of repaint of vehicle.)

    our M 931 is the Chief, the M 109A3 is the Deuce and the Gama Goat is simply either the goat or the racin Goat .

    I've named all my trucks.
    My 1991 HMMWV is named Stormy.

    Once bought a 2500 Dodge Ram at state auction to haul stuff I was buying at GL in Oceanside. Coming up the grapevine hill I told my wife let's name her Rhonda. Clicked on the radio and "Help my Rhonda" came on. She's been a great truck.
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    My m109a3 had 'Belleville the Dollhouse' written in pencil on the driver side engine flap. So she is 'Bella'. Haven't named the m37 yet or the m1008 railroad truck. Everything else I have is named, usually the name just comes to me naturally while driving them.

    And when at last he came upon the vehicle, he perceived the distress of the engine therein and forthwith struck it with a hammer and it was good. Thereupon the engine ignited and was filled with strength...

    Don't follow me, you won't make it! Heck I probably won't!

    My 76 has "L'L Hummer" on the front and sides of the hood. Was that way when I bought it. I have also seen it on YouTube from before I owned it. Smashing up a Jeep Cherokee.
