my husband is a mechanic so we went through a slew of car names when I was pregnant. I got the final say, and my daughter's name is Penelope :) but some of the names that made our list were: Bentley, Shelby, and Cheyenne. we also discussed Eleanor (gone in 60 sec. reference) and Sally (after the song "mustang Sally")
