Other Funny Names for Car Parts.

G'Day all,

Just thought I would start a thread on what other funny names you use for car parts, or have heard them called. I'll start the ball rolling with a few.

Automatic Transmission:- Sludge-O-Matic, Think-Tank, Trau-Matic (Holden Tri-Matic).

Diff Centre:- Pumpkin (Ford 9" Removable Carrier Type, as opposed to Bog Warner which isn't removable).

Disk Brake:- Top Hat (AU Falcon on, as opposed to earlier type Unicast with intergral Hub).

What about the 1/4 panel, looks like a full one to me.
