PRV - rough as a bears arse with a useable rev range of 2499 - 2501 rpm. Fitted to such things of beauty as the Peugeot 604, Volvo 264, Talbot Tagora, UMM Alter II, Renault 30, Renault Espace, Delorean and Citroen XM. 

Barrett - to buy a plastic car that is rusty as fuck.

Hirst Cab - anything that would have been seen around Wakefield in 1983 illegally plying for hire.

It's very easy to get a 1.3 Marina sideways, especially if you put a Vauxhall Viva engine in the boot without any restraint.

Grenading - When a car drinks all it's own engine oil via ill designed turbo oil seals, revs uncontollably finally ending in catastrophic engine diahoria by shitting out all its mechanical parts through the side of the engine/back of the exhaust.

For further reference see Renault Laguna II DCi

 

Also applies to automatic gearboxes that sponaniously refuse to the single job they're designed for by not changing gear, illuminating various spurious and alarming lights on the dashboard and finally going permanently into gaelic huff by mechanically shrugging their shoulder. This finally see's you dragging it to the scrap yard with the only consolance being that in a few weeks the engine probably would have grenaded anyway (see above).

For further reference see Renault Laguna II DCi

"Made of unobtanium" - parts that you won't find anywhere other than a scappies yard or a "specialist' breaker. Most often refers to that bit of trim that was uniquely fitted to your car for one week only during August in 1984. Likely to be a badge, 80's stylee stripe or bit of dash furniture. In more modern motors refers to anything that you can only buy from a franchised main dealer at extortionate prices, like parts for smarts  :mad: or electronic thingumajigs

Could we keep it to genuine autoshite language? That'd be more help to newcomers (assuming they bother to read this thread, which they probably won't).
