    Cadillac XLR

    2004 Black Raven

    Default I'm new .... Lola's an '04

    Hi ...

    I guess I just got lucky when I found another XLR Forum!

    Lola is the name that I gave my XLR when I found her almost 2 years ago .... she is my DD .... we travel in her too ....

    This is the only car - out of about 43 - that I have ever cared about .... Now I know why men love their cars so much ...

    You sound/look familiar. Do you hang out at the BBB in Burbank after consuming copious amounts of turkey during the month of November????

    Ruth Ann,
    My nephew and I were cruising on Saturday, and we had a discussion about how often I called my car "She" and he said it "feels" female!
    Anyone else have a "pretty girl" or are there some "hotdudes" out there?
    I will have to give some thought to this, and name my baby girl.

    I am here too.

    Ruthie will still take care of the posting. I will still take care of Lola.

    It will be awesome to see everyone again when we go to San Antonio. We have had great times at every event.

    He's been lurking .... through me....

    I guess he got thrown off of the other forum too, because he can't get on either ... I guess he is guilty by association!

    Ray,it's great to hear from you. I hope all is well. RA says you have done a wonderful job taking care of her over the past few months. She and Lola are lucky to have you. Hope to see you in SA.

    I name all my cars, makes getting rid of them harder though. My wife typically gives hers masculine names, I give mine feminine names, or we select asexual names. The XLR is Ondryia, if you are familiar with song Valley Girl by Frank & Moon Zappa. I feel more normal knowing others name their cars also.
    Phase II: who celebrates their cars birthdays? I recently was in an accident that totaled one of my older drivers. While speaking to the attorney I mentioned the car was like family, and we had celebrated it's Car-Mitzvah. She was laughing so hard she had a tough time finishing the phone call.
