    Your colt should be named "Dog Meat". After the movie Caddy Shack 2. In that movie, Jackie Mason's horse that kept farting was named Dog Meat.

    Something about this car reminds me of my first car. I needed a car in college because I was working on a field study, so my Dad bought me a 64 Volkswagen Bug, this was 1977 or so. I knew how to drive an automatic but this car was a stick and there were a lot of hills between my dorm and the field study. He and my brother brought it down and left it without even giving me a lesson. The name she got was "Dammit". Somehow, I'll bet you've even called this car that name, or worse, a time or two!
