Slang names for cars


Recommended Posts

Back in the 1990s I owned what transpired to be a unicorn poop rare RHD 2 door Mk1 Jetta. 

Bored one day, I hacked up a couple of spare mk1 Golf badges I had lying around, along with the Jetta bootlid badge. When finished, my car proudly wore its GoGetta badge for the remainder of my ownership. It actually looked almost OEM too.
