    Default The "Name All the Track HQ Cars Initiative"

    We need to name all the cars on TrackHQ worth of a name. We currently have as examples:
    • Crusher = Emilio's Miata
    • Hello Kitty = BellWilliam's Miata
    • Kaboom = Hakeem's Mazda



    You can name you own car or name someone else's car. You can name your car's current name or TrackHQ members can elect to more properly rename a car. There are not many rules and no etiquette in typical TrackHQ style.
    To the right of The Sheriff. Isn't everyone?

    Well isn't William's car Enzo? Gordon now has Hello Kitty.

    My car has been named Sparky by either John Wing or Emilio because of its electrical issues.

    Why is it only the Mazda's have names. Are the owner/drivers a little bit more in touch with their sensitive side and the rest of TrackHQ is just a bunch of brutes?

    Or "Carl." Or Grimace, because it's purple like the McDonald's character, if you're old enough to remember him.

    No, it's just one of the many things we get done on the oval at ACS.

    "On any given weekend, more Mazdas are raced than any other car." (Mazda TV commercial, but true). So because there are more Mazda race cars, it just seems like they are the only ones with names.

    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    That way, if the car overheats we can call it hot Carl. On second thought ...

    So named for its ability to throw sparks everywhere but the combustion chamber.

    A few corrections

    Emilio
    Crusher - Orange enduro Miata
    Bubbles - New enduro Miata
    OGK - (Orange Giant Killa) E3 enduro car
    Onelap - 95 R street car project (as in one lap needed to win Hoosiers)
    Super - Silver NB SuperMiata

    William
    Enzo - Rd T25 winner, Miata

    Sonny
    Monty- Silver (soon to be white) E3 Miata

    Eric
    Sparky - Named it after it shot a spark out the dash when John tried to start it here

    Gordon
    Mega - 400whp Miata beast
    Kitty - (not "Hello Kitty") black enduro Miata

    Andrew
    Theseus - 350whp black Miata
    Rover - Red enduro Miata

    suggestions:

    Rob
    Gopher - Burgundy SM

    Richard
    Hope - Formula Mazda
    WWW.949RACING.COM
    SuperMiata

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.
    But obviously I just dont get it. -fatbillybob
