The Cube (I, it was year 2001...sigh) was nicknamed like that by a friend.
The name stuck, the Cube II is the one I bought after the original was stolen.

I didn't want to give Rovers a name, but I coded the 109" under "Project Rollergirl", being a rolling chassis, a day I felt like watching "Boogie Nights" again

An old friend named my Porsche Piglet after the Winnie the Pooh character so following that theme the yellow Series IIA 88 got named Pooh and the big slow blue diesel 109 SW got named Eeyore.





The D-90 is usually called the D-90 unless its the wife (who calls all of them indiscriminately that damn Land Rover).

I used to call my Landrew Von Rovenheimer, but since I added some Disco II front seats (that I need to wire up to reduce the amount they're reclined) I call it The Lounge Rover.

My 90 was named by my girlfriend (now wife) "the coffee spiller" for obvious reasons.

Now my kids call it that.

Maybe I should get Bilsteins?

When I got mine it was so covered in huge amounts of rust my son said you better be careful working on that Dad or you’ll get Tetanus. The name stuck.

Depending on what kind of mood I'm in and how well she's been behaving I have different names. I recently renamed my 110 "The Need Machine". It's just always needing something.

In the future, I'm going to name all Rovers after some type of boat (i.e. "Grady", "Hinckley") because I've come to the conclusion that owning a D is just like owning a boat in terms of maintenance (especially when you're trying to stay ahead of corrosion).

there are only 2 good days when you own a boat ... the day you buy it and the day you sell it
