What will I name Her?

Oh, Hello 2007 Honda Fit Sport Version in IRIDESCENT orange (sorry, had to yell it out!)

For some it is a Mercedes, for others a vintage 1957 Corvair... Me? A Honda Fit, preferably in Orange. Dreams come true, oh yes they do!
(Currently in my heart there is also the melancholy of watching the Golden Egg's taillights fade out of that big garage...
And the gravity of financial obligation (nominal as it is))
Ah, life: the mixed fruit basket of bitter and sweet...

So far it's between Tiger Lily and Copper Slug...

Any suggestions?

I vote for Copper Slug.
We have a Fit and absolutely LOVE it. You will be AMAZED by how much you are able to squeeze in there. We fit this in with relative ease: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80119463
I still can't believe it to this day.
Excellent choice - CONGRATS!

oooo I thought 'golden egg' was pretty but this car is sooo cool. I can really see you in this one. Im liking the copper reference, coppersmith perhaps.

My vote is for Tiger Lily.

I, too, get attached to my vehicles. I can still get teary over one of them...

Funny how we can attach gender. Mine have been a mix of masculine/feminine car souls - it always seems clear to me which they are :)!

I'm with Nancy, I think I have an orange crush on your new car. We haven't had a car payment since 1994-I wish you could send me some of that new car smell.

P.S. She looks like a tigerlilly to me.

How about Trumpet Vine...

It would remind me of a great song by Kate Wolf...

"the trumpet vine grew in the kitchen, bloomed bright orange on the wall."

I like Tiger Lily. My own suggestions include:

-Tequila Sunrise
-Fiesta! (exclamation point oh so necessary)
-Fizz (like a soda!)

Congrats! It looks great!

Nectar.

That's my suggestion.
Popped a note in the mail for you today my girl. Just a short one. Just an exclamation of sorts.

I miss you to your very bones.
