I confess I sometimes refer to my iQ as "the escape pod"....partly because it is small enough to be the escape pod of many vehicles around me on the road, and partly because that's just how great I feel driving it.

Who came up with "moon buggy"...I love that one!

How do you refer to your iQ, whether actual names or not?

I was considering that exact name after my sister suggested that we could pack my iQ into her SUV and use it for away missions. :)

I named my iQ "Pirouette" because I dance and it just seemed appropriate given the iQ's amazing agility.

Ha...that's awesome!!

According to the iQ Farcebook page, at the factory it is referred to as "the brick."

I've always thought "iQtie" was pretty clever, too.
I was going to get a vanity plate with iQtie on it but then I thought people might think I'm vain. LOL My initials are TLC and some of my friends call me "Tee" so I use IQT for a nickname for my baby. :)

Mine is Cliffjumper, or CJ for short.
Sometimes referred to as my "Ridiculous little car"

I've found myself saying things like, "Come on, CJ, let's go home." as I walk out to the car after a long day at work.

While I conversationally refer to my car in various ways, I myself have never outright named a car, try as I may. In some obscure corners of the internet, I am fairly famous for doing (or in this case not doing) this. Not sure why.

I was just talking about this the other day. At the moment the iQ is known as "thelittlecar". But if I were to name it, then "Sheldon" it would be . . . . brilliantly nerdy. (after Dr. Sheldon Cooper from the TV show The Big Bang Theory)

My partner and I had two BMWs when I bought the iQ. His is a 7 Series, mine is a 3 Series. His is referred to as the 7, mine as the 3. I've nicknamed the iQ the minus 2.
