    anyone get a weird email from toyota asking

    if your car is a boy or girl ?

    What kind of parking does your car love the most?

    What movie genre does your car like the most?

    If your car had a wardrobe style, what would it be?

    Ready to name your Toyota?

    It reminds me of this campaign a while back. Here is @Bill the Engineer 's Firebrid name plate.

    Are you "really" sure it was from Toyota? Look at the email header carefully.

    The other campaign I references was a Toyota USA thing.
    I agree, the email the OP received looks suspect.

    Boy or girl? It's a car...it's gender fluid (??)

    Parking? If it's plugged in somewhere, that's always nice, we don't plug in at home

    Movie genre? It hasn't been to a drive in, but if it did, it would be something light..anime??

    Wardrobe? My skinny jeans, gym clothes, and sweaters are in the back and trunk..fitness athlete/gym rat, occasional jacket for court (I'm a lawyer if I still need to be, I try to avoid it)

    Name? The Prius (aka the New Prius)
    I wish it said Supra on it instead of Prime, but I'm waiting on Toyota for that!

    Sure, every car has a name. Usually displayed in the lower front windshield. For Toyota, it's usually something like JTDHIH06Q85LZ4567 :)

    My car is a she, and the name is Pree.
    She likes to plug in, and from the rear has a grin, and the front has a Leno type chin!

    Come-on, It's a car! I am not going to fall in the trap of being emotionally attached to this piece of metal (and some plastic and fiberglass)!!! NO, NO, NOOOOOO! We made that mistake when we named our chickens!:cautious:

    My car is called Eevee. It's the white robot from Wall-E. I drive a white Prime for one thing I can drive it in "EV" mode.

    My mother when I was a kid, started the tradition of "naming" our automobiles.
    When I started owning automobiles of my own? Any I kept for any appreciable time, I gave a name.

    The strange thing is there was one exception. My Prius.
    I loved it, I liked it, I kept it for 3 years. BUT....I never could get a name for it. It was always just "The Prius".

    Now back to a Honda Fit...well it's name is Kellas, named after the Black Scottish wild cats found in Scotland.
