The Toyota Priapus.

No, it's not mine. We don't name our cars.

But our floor-washing robot is named "Scoobie", and if we get a rug-cleaning robot then we're going to have to name it "Shaggy".

The Honda Element was designed for young people but boomers (like me), ended up buying a lot of them.

Hence, the "Elderment."

We had a '67 VW camper with license plate APT875 - it was, of course, the apartment. Then there was Old Blue, a 1966 3/4 ton ex-cannery truck running split rims and a monster 351 V6. Got the same 6mpg empty or loaded with as much rock as you could put on it.

I named my first car - Flo - you know "going with the flo!"

I know - pretty cheesy - but I was 16!
