    Ya know for some reason I've always given names to my pickup trucks through the years and got to thinking if I'm the only one that does this or are there others out there like me.

    I've always named them "Maria" (for some reason) until I got the VooDoo Blue color in 2020 and decided to name him "BigBlue".

    I'm really curious to know what others have named their pickup trucks (and why) so let's keep it clean and attach a picture. Fire away ! ! !

    Even though I have a 2nd Gen, mine is called "the Rorschach Test" due to 1. My profession, and 2. due to the act that everytime a person looks at it they see something a little different.

    I named my teddy bears/toys when I was small kid. I outgrew that. I find the naming of inanimate objects strange as an adult.
    Same goes for calling inanimate objects male/female pronouns. Very strange practice to me.

    I'm a car geek, so I understand these things have different characteristics and diving experiences [much like humans], but to go so far as naming them?

    maybe someone can explain it to me? what persuades someone to give an inanimate object a human name as opposed to saying 'My Tacoma'?
