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).

Banjo (or Bang-go:s6: ) diff (early Holden 6)
Slide and Glide (GM Powerglide trans)
Opera window (the rear 1/4 window glass in the body of a car, not the one in the door)
Moonroof (sunroof)
Hood (Yank speak for bonnet)
Trunk (Yank speak for boot)
Windsheild (Yank speak for windscreen)

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

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