Re: What name have you given your T

My 26 touring name is Lizzy, short for Lizzabeth T Ford. My 31 A pickup is named Glen for the previous owner. And my 47 CJ2A Willys Jeep is named Teddy, short for Theodore Roosevelt because he is a Rough Rider. And Lizzy's middle name so far is Terrific and not Trouble.
