It’s been several weeks now and still no name. And trust us, we have tried. ALOT. By the way thanks Dan Nelson of Nelson Boat Works for stealing the best name ever. “OLD GLORY” for the little racer you restored a couple years ago. But we need to move on. Below is a short list of the names we have thought of, and some of her history to see it unleashes any creativity.
FADED GLORY – Depressing
GLORY – Not bad, but kinda close to OLD GLORY, dam you Dan Nelson, you took all the Glory out of this.
LIBERTY – Taken by a Dumas Model Co.
DIXIE – Racist
PEACHES, She is from Georgia. But not pink.
VELMA – The name of the original owners wife.
MISS BUTTS – She is from BUTTS county GA
RAT TURD – hey, it is what it is.
FAT HEAD – The aluminum head is fatter than the cast iron one.
SPARKY – Not sure why? Its just short fun name. but not sure I want it to live up to that name.
FREEDOM – time out on the lake with some American pride.
REMEMBER – She was delivered on Sept 11…..1936 though.
“lil’Chris – Fun race name
A couple rules, it must sound like it was named in the 30’s, 40’s. And thats about it.
Here is a bit of her history to help.
She was originally delivered on Sept 11,1936 to Atlanta GA, Purchased by Uncle George Maddox and his wife Velma, in 1945 and it raced on Jackson Lake GA in Butts County. All she was known as is Maddox’s Red White and Blue racer. She originally had a red leather interior, and still has her original “H” engine with Aluminum Head. She is also covered in fiberglass, so we did explore “UNDER GLASS” stuff. See this isn’t so easy is it. And it must be perfect. Have fun today.
