This is "Henry", not for Ford but for my Uncle Henry who owned it for 40 years.

Henry "James Bondo" Rudolph Ford

Rudolph is for his lighted hood ornament.
You can figure out the rest.

Ol' Henry for short.

My car is Gracie (Gracie Allen) and my truck is Molly (that should be obvious to any old radio fans)

My 34 coupe is called 'CLYDE'. The original owner called it 'Bonnie Jean', but as it was at that time a 4-cylinder model, maybe it suited that name. It is now a V8, and definitely not 'feminine'. I bought an old chrome plate topper 'CLYDE', off an internet auction, and figured that maybe this was just meant to be.
My 37 coupe is called 'Elizabeth', the original owner who I bought it off told me that she bought the car at the same time as the Coronation of the Queen Mother, who was Elizabeth. My 37 coupe is definitely a 'Lady'.
My everyday driver 38 deluxe sedan is 'ol Smoky', due to its original 100,000 mile engine blowing out more smoke than you would believe.

<<<<<< "Mrs Bishop" or "The Bishop" the original owners name was Bishop & the the original owner/builder of the old rock house we have lived in for 25 years , with a B in the chimney , & now home to my RHD 36 was Bishop also . so we think the name is fitting.
Cheers
Tony

That's assume...I enjoy reading all of the stores about the names of your cars. Good reading.

Not very original, my '36 Ford has always been referred to as "Henry".
I named my '39 Plym conv.. "Walter".. not because of Walter P. Chrysler, because of the wheezing, coughing boy friend of Meg Ryan, in "Sleepless In Seattle"..
I had a '68 3/4 ton 4x for many years which my kids named "the tank".. for obvious reasons..
