Soon after getting the 2002 home from Seattle the usual question came up about what name we should give it.
Our '67 Beetle which all of my girls learned how to drive stick was named Ringo. The Beetle. My '89 911 C4 is named Heidi. German high maintenance super model.
Every cool car we've had gets a good name.
So, what would be appropriate for a tough old car that's been through a lot but is still great looking and dependable? My Wife Jo, said Betty. That's her Mothers name. A very cool lady from the New Orleans Irish Channel. She raised 5 kids through some tough times. Always took great care of everyone and anyone. Was there when you needed her and sometimes when you didn't. Perfect.
Sadly she passed away this year. We'll keep her memory alive the best we can.
