It's some type of squash I think, but it's got bumps and has streaks down it. I usually grow crooked neck or prolific.

Crook Necks sometimes do grow bumps but the bumps in combination with the stripes make me think it has some gourd parentage. Do you save seeds?

My first thought was maybe Pumpkin (Cucurbita mixta 'Orange Cushaw')

but probably a variety of Crookneck Squash (Cucurbita pepo 'Summer Crookneck') Here's the database link for more:

I'm with you, Pork. It looks very similar to an ornamental gourd that is often sold here in the fall.
