Car slang
« on: August 10, 2011, 10:28:59 AM »
You don't sound cool if when you use terms like "whip" and "ride."  It's a fucking car.  You sound like a fucking moron if you say, "My whip."  Those round things that your tires are on... wheels.  Not "blades," "shoes" or "dubs"  Rims, while not completely accurate, is also acceptable.  Chrome is not "bling."  All these terms make me fucking cringe when I hear them. 


But it is acceptable to refer to a wagon as a longroof  :yup:

You decide this all by yourself or is there an automobile slang conglomerate that decides these things?

Just sayin. :)

what about calling big tires "meats" or "big and littles" or "slicks and skinnies"

Slang doesn't bother me at all as long as it's not over used or just plain stupid.

Calling tires "meats" at least somewhat makes sense. Calling a car a "whip" makes no sense what-so-fucking-ever.

It makes perfect sense if you know where the term came from. Granted it originally only included the steering wheel.
