It appears that my son, with his precious sense of humor, has named the new truck "Casper" because it is the only thing in the yard that isn't dark, besides the camper. Although he still says he is searching for other possible names. We had always called the Excursion the "Beast" or "Baby" depending on who was talking until Trent(my son who was 9 at the time) called it "BAT". We had asked him several times why he called it "Bat" and he would just smile, until one day he finally broke down and told us. He said he thought if he told us why he called it that he would be in trouble, He said it stood for 'big *** truck'!!! My wife still hasn't let either of us live that one down!

For the first 12 years she was christened " the bus" because all the kids at the bus stop up the road would line up when they heard me coming up the hill. They had good ears, the school district had a fleet of NAVSTAR busses at that time so they had the right motor. Then in 2012 I had a little fender bender and replaced the grill, bumper and headlights with 05 parts so she was christened "Jenni with a nose job" aka just Jenni.
