I had to Google the name of your truck and it lead me to the other forum where you documented it's resurrection.

That was quite the journey and I admire your dedication to the project.

Welcome to the forum and I look forward to more of your story.

I've gone to calling mine Annie....since she's red. Lame but effective.
My white van is Betty Blanco

We have a 2002 Black 2500 avalanche with a 3" lift. Due to the old saying that if you can't run with the big dogs, they stay on the porch, we named ours BRUTUS....because he is a big dog with the 8.1 engine. A dream to drive. He is like a Bull Dog.

"Alice" an old woman (340k miles) with an attitude that ain't that pretty to look at but does everything you need her to do and then some!

I have a few nick names for my Dark Green 2002 Z71 with 300,000 miles. "The Green Machine", "Smokey", and "EXXON" because it looses oil like the Exxon Valdez did in March, 1989.

Sylvester..Sly for short..since my 02 is a member of the "Cat eye era", Sylvester is the coolest cat i know...:cheers: Enjoy the day.
I've always thought Chevy trucks of that era (mine is 2003) looked like hornet faces. More sinister due to the inward slope. I named mine Bart. Actually BART. As in Big Ass Red Truck.

as we were making the drive to look at the Av i bought, my wife mentioned how it was a "diamond in the rough", since it was far better condition than anything else in the price range. And the name Diamond stuck.

Searched a little and didn't find anything on the topic. Let's hear what everyone has named their Av! I know some of us call our trucks Big Blue, or something like that, but I know there are some original ones out there.

Mine's named Jester. Part of it is from Top Gun, and also, my wife gave me one of those Homies little plastic figures that looks like a jester. He's my co-pilot, lives in the ash tray! >:D

Who's next?
Hi Redspook..I call my SUNBURST Avalanche FLAME 🔥.. like the fire.. because I get ALL kinds of looks when I was driving her

Old Grey Ghost, Kind of like me. Got some dings and abrasions but still going strong LOL!! Well, maybe still going on would be more appropriate. Even the license plate is fitting for the name. My FCC license name k0old.

When I first bought my Avalanche, I had never thought of naming it...but my wife's cousin called it Hercules, due to how incredibly strong this truck is. It's a champ. I guess that is its name :woot:
