Yep - and I'm on your side - cars are not people and need no such affectation 
as cute names to be enjoyable for me. I'll let you in on another observation 
though - having been through this same discussion on other groups, I'd warn 
you that the OTHER sort of person - the one that has to name his MGB 'Susan' 
or some such, has been known to take grave exception to any suggestion that 
such behaviour on his/her part is open to comment, much less crititcism.

So any suggestion that the 'Namers' need to get a life, warm animal, doll, 
spouse, whatever, as an outlet for whatever urge makes them name their cars, 
may be met with accusations that you are a heartless bastard, run over small 
(cute) animals on purpose (we don't of course - those little blighters can 
puncture a tire quick as you can say "Meow-squish"), or are a secret Triumph 

You have been warned!
