What is your Pathfinders nickname?

Recommended Posts

I find that many people who are really into their rides eventually name their vehicles. I figured this would be a fun thread so let's start... What is your Pathfinders nickname?

 

Mine is affectionately known as "Rustina" AKA "The Rustfinder"

Put some 15x10 turbines on it, tires poke a bit. Started referring to it as the "Stancefinder"

Haven't named mine yet, but I should call it the money pit, almost as bad as owning a boat.

Maybe I'll give that name to my 240SX, though it too could just as easily be Rustina.

About a good inch and a half of tread sticks out, throws mud all over the side. I got a set of fender flares, but I'm not quite sure how the back ones mount yet. Haven't really looked, but the front mount through the tabs on the fender, but there aren't any on the back.

So mine is not quiet a Pathfinder, but in 1996, it was the closest thing Nissan offered in our country

Earned the name "Hillbilly" in 2006 already. But I have carried the name further by in the way the vehicle has been modified and fixed over the years. Budgets have always been tight. Vehicle has been written off twice by the insurance, but I have each time been able to rescue it. End result is some sketchy work and repairs.

 

But it has never left me stranded next to the road or trail. Gets used as my daily intimidation tool...err.... driver.

 

He is part of the family.

 

Disclaimer! ! No offence intended to Hillbillies. I use this term with utmost affection.

Now you mention it, the donor vehicle I bought for the last rescue, was a 82 MQ Patrol UTE for its suspension. It also went to saving another two vehicles with a heap of spares left that have probably helped even more.

Rat Trap, because there was a dead rat in the resonator when I got it.

 

PATJ, the upper mounts on the rear flares are these hokey U-shaped plastic bits that sort of clamp the flare to the fender, with a fastener just to hold them shut. Not all flares are alike, either, I picked one off a '93 (I think?) at the wreckers and it didn't fit my '95. I think the U-shaped bits were even different. But the ones off the '95 later fit my current '93 no problem. :shrug: A friend of mine with similar wheel poke on his S10 has been running lawn edging for most of the winter and it seems to work pretty well.

When I first saw it, it was completely buried in snow. All you could see was the top of the roof. I call her Yeti.

So there are at least three on here that are called "Beast". I've never changed a given name for a truck, but I'm considering it now.

The truck. makes it easy to refer to since we also have 'The car', 'The van' and 'The bike'

I'm wondering why most people like to give their trucks female names. It's not like you're gay if you name it Bill, you know :D
