    I think it would be important to the car...she may not answer to a new one..
    An Elvis CD would appropriate music...

    Oh yes, keep the name. She knows who she is and probably earned that name somehow.

    I llike the idea of vanity plates with that name on it.

    Be sure to keep that letter with the car too. Someday she may be at that super auction on TV and the letter will make her all the more valuable. How cool!

    hmm, doubt it. g-ma had a push button plymoth seneca. in the 60's we had an automatic valiant. in the 80's we had a 60's stick valiant.

    lol. I'm 6'1". I could steer that car with left knee, shift from first into second with the right while balancing gas/clutch pedals with my feet while I was brushing my hair into a ponytail with my hands.

    18 year olds are idiots. hee!

    In my defence, it was summertime in the hills of middle texas with no airconditioning, the windows were down & my hair to my waist. Just HAD to be tied back.
