Most Eccentric Rich Capitalists Enjoy Driving Expensive Sedans
Miss Cellania has a list of Automotive Acronyms, of which perhaps the best known is Ford: "Found On Road Dead." (At least, I think it's the best-known; the only time I ever actually heard it spoken was while I was trying to get an old Mercury started in the parking lot at Heritage Park and a couple of clowns in a Pontiac tossed it at me as they whizzed by at 14 mph.)
I offered my standard (okay, maybe it's automatic) rendering of "Oldsmobile" "Old, Leisurely-Driven Sedan Made Of Buick's Inferior Leftover Equipment."
Other old favorites:
And it took a while, but I finally turned up one for my own car: "It Never Found Its Niche: It's Truly Inconsequential."
(A truly prodigious list can be found here.)
