Please help me name my new car!

I just got my first real car, and I am having trouble thinking of a name for it. It is a metallic grey BMW Z4. Do any of you have any suggestions for names?

Sporticas? A cross of sporty and Sparticas.

Shadow

Zed?

Barney

MLC Toy.

While I respect your right to attempt to anthropomorphize your machine by giving it a name, I still find it completely assinine to do so. It’s a freakin’ machine.
Got a nme for your toaster? Any clever nickname for your gas grill?

Oh No ! Geico Took And Used The Name I Suggested Above, Jackwagon . . . I Just Saw Their 30 Second Ad On TV. Check It !
