We all have our own lingos in different places. I want to see some of your favorites.
Any physical injury incurred ........"That'll buff out"
The 60's,"Grass, Gas or Ass, Nobody Rides for Free", Not a ref to girls "Haulin Ass" from my racing days, "Bravest of the Brave" very fine line to "Dumb as a Box of Rocks" "Hero or Asshole Move" Hero when you get away with move, Asshole as your flipping over fence, why did you think you would get away with that move ? These few poped into my old brain this AM.
When street racing, "You chase you race." regarding red light starts.
Flatties,4 bangers, shoeboxs
"Hammered", could refer to the coupe with the mail slots or the driver. LOL
Cuttin a fat hawg in the ass or haulin the mail both come to mind as well and both mean the same thing.
When I was in high school in the Pacific NW, "Runnin the gut" meant cruising main street.
Bump stick refers to a cam shaft, loud peddle refers to the gas peddle and loud season refers to anytime that it is not winter around here.
Mouse and rat motor are two of my favs.
Not a "HAMB" ish phrase, but a car phrase none the less. I picked it up while at a SCORE race in Mexico while trying to cross the course:
Me shouting at a local: Compa! Is it safe to cross here or are there booby-traps?
Local: Jes. Jew can play a cross here, perro jou're gonna need four times four!
It took me a few moments to realize that he meant 4 wheel drive (4x4). The custom plate on my chase vehicle now reads "4TIMEZ4"
"Goes like a scalded cat", "Runs like a raped ape" are the two I use most often.

These maybe more local to south Florida.;Thats a "Trog" meaning was if car was junky or just lots of wrong stuff done,.
Cut-up,we used to mean a custom that had lots of mods,could of been good or bad.
Here one of my favorites:
"If its got TITS or TIRES, you're going to have problems..."
Heard this one from my dad " Shits and gets"
yay...another worthless thread idea that's sure to become a Featured Thread...

^^^^^What he said^^^^^
For me, I'm going back to the "stupid things said/heard at the parts store, car show, cruise night, race track" threads. Some real meaty, automotive subjects there, as well.
Gonna drive my Pontiac GOOLIE with the 710 cap and the Coke bottle inside the quarter panel
Here in East T.N. its when a car is priced wayyy to high we say. MAN THEY MUST BE PROUD OF THEIR SHIT.LOL.Bruce.
OK but let me tell a story first.
City cousin goes to Montana to stey with the country cousin. The city cousin says "what do you do for excitement around here." So the country cousin throws a case of beer in the cooler and they load up on the ol cowboy Cadillac and head for the hills. They try cow tippin' and jungle ridin' for a while when they come up on this sheep with its head stuck on the barb wire. The country cousin says "Hot dang" and jumps out and starts pourin' it to that ol sheep. Then he says, "Dang that were fun wanna try?" the city cousin says, "OK, but do I have to stick my head through the fence?"
OK back to car stuff, "beater, and heap" both mean drivers.
You are a grumpy little elf today Larry......................
I'll shoot you... In the face...... With my meat musket!
There. Now the thread will get deleted, and you can go about your day happy as can be.
Larry: "Thanks Chad"
Chad: "For nuttin, Larr-Bear. I got your back, Amigo."
What the hell is "pouring it to that sheep"?
Runnin' the valves.
Pedal to the front bumper.
Chrome wont get you home.
Ovine carnal knowledge
Thanks Karl you saved me from dropping the F bomb today. @xpletiv must be the city cousin.
Ok back to car phrases which by the way there were a couple in my sorry that I wrote for Larry.
Cuttin a cats ass is the same as makin donuts.
The roadster owners usually say "coupes are for chickens"
Seems like I was constantly pleading to unknown people with my hood open: "Can I get a jump from ya'?".....
Usually followed by the question, "You want a WHAT?"
from the list of DEPARTING (opposite of saying hello)
