Funny subject. But I kinda think that a car is not predetermined to a
particular gender, it earns its gender.
For instance, my brother has an old 911T (' 71). Her name is Lucy (as in
Lucille Ball). He's constantly saying...in a Spanish accent, "Lucy, have
you been up to something?", when it's having mechanical troubles. OTOH, my
former car (a '94 Mustang GT Conv.) had a gender neutral name (the Flexible
Flyer). I thought it was definitely a male, though.
My new car ('98 A4Q 2.8) is a tough call. I think it is too sophisticated
to be a man (no offense intended). Silky, smooth moves, with an 'athletic'
body style and a soft touch. Yea...my car is definitely a 'she'.
Now for a name...
