Your Corvair's name

Post by Skrain »

I noticed that a lot of the Model A Owners I chatted with have names for their cars and trucks.
Just wondering...how many Corvair owners have names for THEIR cars and trucks/vans?
I'm trying to decide on one for my 64 Monza Spyder Convertible. :think:
I'm kinda leaning towards "The Flying Banana", since it is bright yellow... :rolling:
1964 Monza Spyder Turbo Convertible.
1949 Ford 8N Tractor
2006 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road 4X4 Pickup

Latrodectus

A form of widow spider, since your Corvair might be thought of as a Yellow Spyder.

Kind of a far reach, but...
