    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Thumbs down How do you refer to your car ?

    As per title.
    When do people when refering to their car call it " HER" or "SHE" ?

    " I took 'her' for the MOT and 'she' passed ! "
    " She's just had a wash and wax ! "
    " I took 'her' out for a test drive ! "

    Sorry but this makes me cringe !
    It's a piece of machinery. A thing. An item. Not a "she" or "her" .
    Leave the "she - her" thing to the pipe smoking, floppy hat wearing, real ale drinking, 2CV driving narrowboaters !
    Rant over.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
