Way too much imagination here.

I think that the guy would prefer something simple, yet dignified, like

DAVE

Best of luck with DAVE or whoever he becomes.

Regards,

Brian

Perhaps "Long John Silver" or "Long Jane Silver" (if it is a she) or "The Silver Money Pit" might be appropriate.

Frank,

Now you know that SYLVIA is already taken.

Sylvia Robinson to be more precise. My trailer has taken on the alter ego of Mrs. Robinson, from the movie "The Graduate"

Let's just say She's been around the block a few times, was getting pretty bored with suburban life , and now just wants to have some fun. After a little spa time and some nip & tuck she is really to go.

And she still looks great for a mid-century modern classic.

Oh Yea, and that silver sounds like Sylvia thing.....

I'm not good at this either but I like either Earl or Casa Grande Dinero.

The very first post here questioned, "how do people come up with painting these things?" It reminded me of the time I was sitting in a principal's office discussing potential new textbooks for the next school year (my job at the time.) We were in a distressed part of the city and were watching a fellow painting his back porch the crappiest color of yellow-green you could imagine. The principal and I even discussed the problems with painting a house such an ugly color. The guy finished painting the porch and you could just see him look into his paint bucket and wonder what he could do with the rest of the paint. He kinda wandered around looking for something to put the paint on............and then he spotted it. While we sat in the office talking, he walked over to the curb and started painting his car this same UGLY yellow-green color....using a heavy duty paint brush! So, there are those out there that will do the darndest things!

A name....you want a name? There have been a couple really good ones mentioned but you need to come up with something that is meaningful to you or really is of interest to you. Pick a good one, travel safely and enjoy 'streamin down the road.

Ok, now that was a lot of information...how did this thread get here???? I will help too. I think I bought that car a few years ago. It was a 1967 Firebird convertable. UGLY was not the word for it. But when I stripped all the paint off the car, it was in great shape. I paid $50 for this car, put about 4k into it, and sold it for 12k. So all in all, it was a good deal. I wish I had that car now...

Oh, back to the name thing. My wife doesn't count on the contest, so if we go with her idea for a name then we will pick a winner with the best one here. Might even have you all pick the best.

Her idea is "Quicksilver". There is a reason for this. Terlingua Texas was one big mercury mining town until the late 40's. I still don't get the "silver" part because the ore is realy red. I know, I have some right here...that is why I am slow...

Keep up the good work...I will be back to check on you all later.
