    I'm excited and thought I would share.

    I picked her up yesterday.
    I'm looking for a name to call her too..any suggestions.
    She looks exactly like the picture, minus the rear spoiler.

    Congrats on the new wheels! Sorry, but I'm not much on naming vehicles.

    Naming a vehicle is an art. The best names come during a moment of inspiration and are based on the character, and sometimes, a characteristic of the vehicle. For example, my 1983 Cadillac Sedan Deville has been named "Big Grace", Gracie, for short. I needed a car badly and could not afford one. By Grace, I feel, I was able to get the car, a good one, for $1000. She has a healthy appetite for gasoline, is large, but moves gracefully. Grace is a good name because it works in two ways. "Bluebelle" looks like a good name for yours, at least until you receive inspiration for the best name.

    It's very cute! What is it? Did you get it in that color?

    I'm partial to blue because I love blue but my car is black... a real PITA in the summer here in Florida :(

    Very nice wheels. An appropriate name will come to you.

    The last car I had with a name was my '81 Plymouth Horizon. It was light blue, so I called it "Beyond, The Blue Horizon".

    :D

    My Nephew had a blanket he liked to sleep with, it was blue but he had 2 blue blankets and the one he liked was big so he would call it BIG BLUE

    So maybe just call it Big Blue or BB

    Hey, awesome car. CONGRATS!!!! What kind is it?

    I know how important the name is. I got mine a couple of weeks ago and I am still agonizing over what to call her (errr, i think its a her lol). For your car I am really loving Smurfette! I think it is totally adorable.:bow: Good luck with her!

    If anyone wants to name mine, see pic below :D

    Do you think your car is more of a boy car or a girl car, Toni?

    If it's a boy, to me, it looks like a Fred. If it's a girl, it looks like a Louise.

    Super Beetle! She was my first love. There is nothing like the smell of a vintage Bug interior. No other car ever smelled the same.
