Brits Name Their Beloved Car

 

Yesinsurance.co.uk have annouced details of a survey of British drivers. It seems that British drivers love their cars so much that 30% give them a name. The most popular names being Betsie, Freddie and Babe.

Men are more likely to name their cars than women.

The survey also revealed that 50% of UK drivers give their cars either a female or male status.

  Someone was bored....  
 
Really why all the useless surveys? Its nearly as bad as that survey that reported that most strippers don't use their real names. I'm thinking, um gee ya think?

So some people name their cars, why bother collecting a survey about it?

  Handyman  
 
I used to advertise that "Handyman and his truck Maurice were available 24 hrs. per day for emergrncies" The customers loved it. "That convinced me to call" they would say. How about "Katie the Snowplow" remember her?
