Have you ever named your Corvette?
I’ve never named my ’66 Corvette, but I do refer to her as “baby” which is a good enough name for me since I’m the only one that drives her. You know, Goodnight Baby. Good morning baby. You want to go cruising baby?
I’m certifiable for sure but I’m not alone! I remember Corvette Racing’s Johnny O’Connell named his C5 Corvette “Sweetness” and a mutual friend names her C7s after the paint color: “Laguna” was her old Blue C7 Stingray and “Sebring” is her new Orange Grand Sport.
With next Tuesday, October 2nd being “National Name Your Car Day”, we wanted to find out if you have given a name to your Corvette.
The GM BuyPower Card commissioned a survey of licensed drivers across the country with 42% saying they have named their vehicles. And proving I am not crazy, 55% of those in the survey say their cars are identified as female. We plan on sharing the rest of the stats from the survey next week but I wanted to get our reader’s input as well.
So take our quick and easy poll and let us know!
If you have a cool story about how your Corvette earned its name, I love to hear that as well and perhaps we can share a couple reader stories in next week’s post. Use the comment form below and tell us how you named your Corvette!
