Talking to your Jeeps? O/T

Okay, a while back I posted asking if anyone has named their Jeeps. Quite a few of you have. Well, I noticed the other night that when my Jeep acts up I talk to her. Is this normal? I do it with my new Z car too. Is this a sign I need to get away from Jeeps and Z's? How many of you talk to your Jeep(s) or other vehicles? Is it just simple talk, of do some of you get in involved conversations with them? If so, you're going on my list of people not to 4x4 alone with[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Talking to your Jeeps? O/T

Converse with them, hell, I usually argue with'em! And usually lose! And all my Jeep stuff only ranks second to my '16 Model T Ford on a cold morning. Any of my neighbors can fill you in on some of those verbal abuses!

Re: Talking to your Jeeps? O/T

Maybe I'm strange, but I talk to my Jeep on a daily basis...and yes I address her by name. I find solitude in driving her and it only helps by talking to her(best when done alone). And I know I'm not the only one!!!!

Talk to a Jeep? Hell, I have a realtionship with mine! If she's good to me, I help her all that I can, and we have a very healthy relationship. I even lost my last girlfriend because I love my Baby so much! She said that either the Jeep goes or she goes, so who wants to go Wheelin? }

Re: Talking to your Jeeps? O/T

I don't talk to my Jeep/s because they don't answer so I talk to myself instead ... and I don't answer either ... thank goodness ... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

But, I know all about the caressing part, especially when she's nice and warm ... oooohhh ... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Talking to your Jeeps? O/T

I talk to my Jeep and treat it based on how its running. If its running crappy or making a noise then it doesnt get the engine wash it wanted or the fenderwell spray it needs. I know that this isnt the best form of maintenance, but it hasn't let me down yet!
