    After searching for a long time, i finally found a Skylark to work on just across the border in Minnesota.

    After hauling it back with ugly a** cream colored primer on it, i figured i couldn't go wrong with flat black paint until I could afford real paint. So as a couple of buddies and I are spray-bombing it black, who comes on the radio?, none other than Ram Jam.

    And the name stuck, "Black Betty"

    The Rivski.

    No real reason I quess.
    Me and my friends had a habit of adding "ski" to the end of names to create kind of a term of endearment.

    Like Brewski for beer.

    Friends call me Daleski, so Rivski kind of fell in line.

    okey here's my story.
    My first ever car was a 1974 Chevy Monte Carlo (still have it) and I found it online through this Yahoo Newsgroup http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/73to77chevyabodyshowcase/
    The founder of that website is the previous owner of this car. He had more Montes at the time, and everybody knew his cars and he had a habit of naming cars. The one that ended up being mine went by the name 'The Maroon Monte'. Everyone knew that car. I'm fixing it up but I plan on some kind of maroon-ish color again for the repaint. Just because I bought it like that and it looks great. The name will still fit. Shorly after I got this car I nicknamed it Nuthin' Fancy because it could really use some TLC and it turned into a project car pretty soon after. It was really looking like it was Nuthin' Fancy. This is also inspired by the title of this Lynyrd Skynyrd album (my all time favorite band).

    My 1975 Buick Century didn't came with a name. And I haven't named it (her?) yet. It's been called by others 'The Red Scare' of 'Red Devil'. But with the bonestock little V6 engine I don't see these names fit so well. Maybe when my 350 build is complete and it can really set sail those names will be more fitting. Scaring the rice burners, hunting the streets.
    To my Chevy I always refer to 'The Monte' and my Buick 'The Buick' usually.

    A very good friend of mine has a 1969 Kingswood called Black Betty. Love that name. It fits that big ol' boat just fine. He was missing some of the side chome trim and emblems. And he made emblems himself, saying 'BB' now on the front fenders. Everybody thinks it stands for 'big block', but it's Black Betty (it has a 327).

    Pretty simple... my daughter named it. What do expect from a 2-year old? Emma digs the Boo-ick.

    While its not a small car, Ive always refused to admit that its a big car from my viewpoint, other cars are just itty-bitty. But I will admit that its something of a land-yacht. (I used to drive 55+ ton tanks for a living. Size is relative!) Plus, I was often tinkering with it, making sure everything was tuned just right, my buddies would tease me and Id tell them: I cant tune a piano, but I can tune a boat! and thats where the name Tuna Boat came from.

    Mine is called the "Bomber"...short for Big Buick Bomber....

    I brought a muscle car review magazine into high school to shut my mustang driving friends up....it was a cover story on a GSX i think....the title read "Big Buick Bomber!" ...friends made fun of me and since then they always called my car the bomber...i love it now...and they shut up after a few Buick lessons.

    That was a decade ago...

    I call Tyler's car Lucy, or Loosey. Because every bolt on the car was loose when we got it. And I mean almost every single bolt, internal (engine) and external. Made it easy to tear it completely apart though.
    It doesn't really have a name though, and none of ours do. Only what I call them at the moment, usually not repeatable.

    My 72' GSX clone is named "Velvet Hammer". Which is basically what it's usually referred as. Muscle car with luxury.

    Other than that, I'm thinking about naming it Slagathor..

    When I first saw the car, I thought "That's one sinister looking beast" and it stuck. I was pumped that the plates were available too.....
