OK, dear readers. I am putting together a list and want your help. The few thousand of you who loyally read this site should have enough collective experience to make this happen. I’ve been fascinated by how each car and truck that has a cult-ish following has a nickname made up for it that all the owners know. For example, you all know Corvettes are called Vettes and Mini Coopers are called Minis or Coops, but did you know Ferraris are called Pony Cars? Subarus are called Scubbys? GTOs are Goats?
So that’s what I’m making a list of and if you know of any, add it to the comments so I can have the definitive list which I will make freely available to everyone once it’s done.
- Chevy Cobalt: Balt or C-Balt
- Pontiac GTO: Goat
- Porsche: P-Car
- Ferrari: Pony Car
- Subaru: Scubby
- Mini Cooper: Mini or Coop
- Please add any you know in the comments. Thanks!
