On the 2nd October 2019 the classic car community celebrated National Name Your Car Day.

Here at ClassicLine we love celebrating a national awareness day, even more so when it’s an automotive occasion. Ok, so this may be an American holiday, but when it gets folk talking and sharing their classic car stories, we have to join the party!

To celebrate the day, the ClassicLine team asked some of our favourite car clubs to tell us the names you have bestowed upon your pride and joys. The response was outstanding! So good in fact, that we have picked our top 20 favourite classic car names to share with you.
