Called my former New Beetle "The Pod" as in "Ok, guys, let's all board 'The Pod'"

And my wife's Ford Wagon is "The Mother Ship" ha ha.

Once in a while I refer to my xB as either "The Toaster" or "The Pod" or "The Box"

Blue Meanie... what do ya think of that one? Just curious. Popped into my head as I was checking for spelling errors.

We got our new baby on May 24. Have been reading this site since then, and finally had to actually register...just for this question! I got to drive the new XB to work for a day or two (he actually replaces my hubby's old Grand Am) and the guys I work with named him (I work for a structural engineering firm).

They named him:

Plumb Bob Square Car (He's a Blackberry Crush dude)

We call him Bob!

We LOVE Bob!!! I drive a 2006 VW New Beetle Convertible, but I love driving this guy. He looks cool, gets just as good gas mileage as Pepe (the bug) and gets just as many smiles! :D

Can't wait for our first out of towner with Bob!

I don't even know you yet I like you already :)

Oh, and I switched from a 2001 New Beetle TDI (blue). Boy was it hard to give that up, but I sure am lovin' the xB.

When are we going to see photos of the 2 cars together? Kinda like this.


DOH!

Welcome to the site!

Not really into naming the cars per se, but when we had the Beetle we called it a Pod, or "The Pod". And of course, that makes my wife's wagon The Mothership. Now that we've got the xB, it's pretty much referred to as either "The Toaster" or "The Box".
