Anyway, Fred is the ninth most common name. I can totally get behind naming your car Fred after it gives up the proverbial ghost. If the only way you can get you car started is by using your feet, Flintstones-style, you’re good here.
I'd actually award bonus points if you name a vintage Ferrari Dino Fred. But you wouldn’t. You’d probably be too busy naming it Lucy or Lola or Buddy or Steve.
