    Name Giff's truck

    As inspired by Vehicles planners drive and their nicknames, give my truck a nickname.

    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    I'd name it 'Chip' due to: 1) it's small and chocolate colored like a little chocolate chip and 2) it's got chipped paint on the doors.

    A variation on the above:

    Old Cancersides

    (due the melenoma-like, rust (sp?) patches on the door)
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    BUCK

    "Buck" for the missing grille, or
    "Buck" for what it's worth.

    Baldy. For those tires.

    OT: we have an ordinance here that prohibits parking on anything but a "hard, dustproof surface". Where do I send the Zoning Infraction Notice?

    Two local favourites

    1) Pussy Hauler
    2) Tyre Fryer

    Must be stencilled across the back window or bug deflector.

    How about POS? (Based on colour and body condition)

    Trash-truck (due to the state of the truck)

    POS would also be acurate :-P

    Yeah, the wording is a little suspect, when read litterally. The interpretation is not to cause dust clouds when the vehicle is driven over it, as with, say, gravel.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"
