The naming of the car: Minerva

We (finally) have a name for the car. She will henceforth be known as Minerva (or, when not making official proclamations, we'll call her "Minnie"). The name was given to us by Betsy in Connecticut.

Why we like the name:
Minerva is the goddess of commerce, crafts, wisdom, engineering, medicine, and music (She invented music - good personage to have along for a road trip!).

She also guided and protected Oddesus through his adventures in the Oddysee. Here is a quote from Minerva when She reveals Herself to Oddeseus shortly after he returns to Ithaca:
Did you not know Jove's daughter Minerva- me, who have been ever with you, who kept watch over you in all your troubles?
