As I mentioned in one of the previous entries, we are looking for a catchy, but fitting name for the “Ol’ Dodge” as it has been referred to as of late. Any vehicle with as interesting of a history, as cool of a patina, NEEDS a proper nickname for us to refer to it as. We have been kicking it around here in the office, but nothing has seemed to stick. We figured we’d turn it over to our readers to give us a great name for the “Ol Dodge”.
For anyone that missed it, I posted the history/background on the truck in my initial entry here on the blog. This truck was once a workhorse, then forgotten for many years in the woods, but now is going to live again! (although in a Frankenstein-type manner). I even considered naming the Dodge something that relates to zombies, I figure they are very much alike! Think about it, the truck will be coming back from the dead, and it will look like it did when I pulled it out of the woods, but somehow will be living and breathing! Either way I’ll leave the ideas up to you after reading the background story and looking at the pictures!
We will be picking the most creative name that catches our eye on 6/17/2011. So comment on this post with your entry, and we will announce the winner shortly after the 17th! The winner with our favorite nickname will not only get the bragging rights of naming our Dodge Truck project, they also get a handy-dandy 133 Piece Black&Decker “Project Kit”, while our runner up will receive a 220 Piece Rotary Tool Set. Pretty good for just making up some silly names for a rusty “Ol Dodge” eh?!
So what are you waiting for? Drop us a comment with your best nickname now!
