    Default What do you call yours??

    Now then, having bought a PA-20 Pacer recently, a close member of the family asked me what I called it??!!

    Sometimes in the past a car/motorcycle/airplane has acquired a nickname, sometimes through an incident, memorable event, whatever......

    So, has anyone given their Short Wing Piper a nickname - and why???

    Depends on whether she is behaving or not. Usually though "SPIRIT OF ADVENTURE-SWEET T" Named for my beautiful wife and our adventures together.

    I call one of mine "The Pacer", one "The Clipper" and "The 175". I do have a name for my pool cleaning Polaris. I call him "Lil' Bubba. He isn't very smart, but he works hard. My cat is named Buddy.

    Gee, is this limited to tail-draggers?

    Having grown up with boxer dogs all my life until age 20 or so, I grew to appreciate the rather "abbreviated" nose (I'm trying to be nice here...) on those wonderful dogs. The first time I spied my PA-22, it was love at first sight.... "Stubby" immediately became her name.

    Of course, then I saw Aaron's ("sophistical" on this forum) PA-22; the person who sold it to him had the AUDACITY to paint "Stubby" right on it! Anyway, too late: Stubby it is for my 57A. Aaron will just have to come up with something else!

    One of my Son's previous partners who had a daughter around 8-9 years came up with the name "Sweet P" P for Pacer

    Well my Tripacer was named the Piper Pub by the previous owners. You can find pictures of it at Oshkosh with a beer tap in the baggage door and the Cub logo
    was modified so the bear cub has a beer mug in his paw. So N4358A is the Piper Pub!

    Mine used to be a Tripacer (or as Roger says, tried to be a Pacer, haha!) then was rebuilt as the Racer, so I usually just call it that.

    My Tri is called "Might as Well" because I said it so often when I was rebuilding it. The Pacer I'm doing now seems to be "Why Not".
