generally, the first of a year model i get just gets the designation "The 67" or "The 59"...Although the idea of naming my 59 rag the "frankenrag" has come to light

My new bugs name is Elsa because she'll look like a white queen when she's restored and because I have three young girls.

Names don't come easy to my vehicles. I don't choose them. They have to present themselves.

Shortly after I got the car, my daughter came up with 'Ginger.' She had been to Scotland a few years ago on a summer work/study group and became fascinated with the reddish-headed population there, referred to as 'gingers.' My car is red, so it seemed a natural.

My '65 Beetle is affectionately known as 'Gretchen'. It was the name given to her by the original owner, but it was forgotten as she passed through many hands over the intervening decades. I bumped into the original owner by pure coincidence just after I purchased the car 17 years ago, so once again she became Gretchen after I was informed of her true identity Cool

The previous owner (for the last 27 years!) named our bus "Eve".
In honour to Eve Muir, the wife of famous John Muir who wrote the popular VW guide: "How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive: A Manual of Step-by-Step Procedures for the Compleat Idiot"

As the bus received many different spots of primer over the decades, kids in the neighborhood also called it the "Cloud-Bus".

I've named all three of mine. 64 Bug was the first and I dubbed it Harvey. Came to me with a Herbie kit on it, but it was a little shabby so deemed it Harvey, Herbies drunken/disheveled evil cousin. Dune buggy I call Burt or Bert. Was Berndt which is a German name and since it has flames..... 60 Rag is Barry, short for Blueberry since its blue.

Just a question. VW came up with the Bug and the Rabbit. Since I have both does that mean I have a Bugs Bunny?

My 63 Pearl White sunroof bug is "Herbie", because it was a Herbie replica for 12 years. The decals have been removed a couple years now, but we still call it Herbie.

My 62 Maroon hippy painted sunroof bug is "Ruby." My daughter named her as soon as I pulled in the driveway pulling it behind my truck. It was solid maroon at the time. I got out, and her and my wife were standing there and she declared, "Her name is Ruby. She's Herbie's girlfriend." That was 10 years ago when she was 6. The name stuck. Now that I've covered it with hippy flowers, peace signs, rock group logos, slogans, etc. the name seems even more fitting (and that wasn't what I intended to do to the car. I was going to do a high end custom car and paint it orange). My inner hippy took over and that was that.

Ruby the day I brought her home and she was named.

Ruby now hippified.
