Help me Name my 89 Cooper!

Post by Minidave » Sun Aug 21, 2016 5:29 pm

I drove the Mini home today from Lawrence via Baldwin City and a bunch of back roads and I'm happy to say it ran great.....no issues save it got a little warmer than I wanted when I pushed it. I already have an aluminum radiator that I think will cure that, other than that it ran fine and was fun to drive. The Play Mini exhaust really barks and pops, especially on deceleration - fun stuff!

Ready for a fall run!

So, help me name my Cooper, open to any ideas!

Some suggestions I've received so far.....

Tiny Hulk
RG, or maybe Reggie (for Racing Green)
Archie
pooper cooper
green machine
Oliver
Bullitt
Green Envy = Greenvy
Green Lantern
Mean Green
GangGreen
Speedy
Nigel
Reggie
Alfred
(Since John Cooper tuned these things) Johnny, J.C.
John
Green Hornet

YES! I ran over the mayor's foot in my dad's garage while riding my Green Machine. It was about the size of a Classic Mini.

Really jealous of you Dave. 2 Mini's, 1 MINI, and a Jaguar.

I had the money to buy that little guy too. But I figured paying off some large bills was more important right now and I didn't have a garage to store it, though Tommy naturally offered his garage. I wonder why, lol.

My suggestion focused on your doggies. they ride around with you. I know, a little weird. car rocks though :ds:

How about John ? For the name. simple and to the point. And you already know the last name.
