As for me, the car nickname I remember best was the Warbler.

When I was in the military, all I could afford was a rickety 1960 Rambler sedan. Its paint was several sickly shades of hospital green. The car bounced down the road, moaned, smoked, rattled – even whistled.

It wasn’t just because of its whistling that I called that car the Warbler. On the trunk lid were huge chrome block letters spelling RAMBLER. I pried loose the first R and the M, reversed them, and turned the M upside down. Voila! WARBLER. It seems appropriate.

Now, let’s hear from you.
