just wondering what you named your bus (if anything), and why...

mine's "the beast" because i'm used to driving little cars, like my squareback, my old Z, or my motorcycle.

...just curious

I named mine Big Loaf. I'm really stoked because I found out that BIG LOAF is available as a license plate too.

My 78 Westy I named Brooke... I wanted something from the year I was born and something that I knew would be at the parts yard if I did nothing... I found her in Brooklyn New York (hence Brooke).... Paid $800 for her... have almost 2 grand into her... and she's ALMOST ready to pass inspection and start the major repairs!! HA HA But when we're done... I hope Brooke and i spend many a night camped next to a flowing mountain stream... or brook.

My '77 Sage Green Westy is named Shrek. The license plate says so too. Its a big ugly road ogre that people are always in a big hurry to get away from.

My 71's name is Max (female not male) oddly enough it is one of my favorite names for a female besides it is also the name of a TV character played by Jessica Alba and when I am done with max she will be just as sexy.

The bus that owns me is Goldie. She is gold and white and I am in the gold business. And like the good lady she is, Goldie gets a lot of my "gold".............

Magic Bus or the "thumpin' pumpkin" since it's stereo is louder than shark's because he went with a less than quality head unit. Wink

Dante for mine because I plan to bring him into hell and back on a trip through Central and South America. I've since purchased the flame covered seat covers which makes him look mean...or as mean as a bus can get anyway. The first song I ever played on the car stereo was The Hell Rider by Judas Priest. Hence, Dante - The Hell Rider.
