  • Great post!

    I’d never heard the term ‘Banger’ used to describe an old car until I came to the UK. Back home (Canada) they’re known as a ‘Beater’. One of those words that clearly means the same thing but has been regionalised for the sake of it!

  • Very useful post for next time we have to deal with an ‘Arfur Daley’ type used-car salesman!

    Many of those much-loved police Cozzies would also have been known as ‘jam sandwiches’ due to their red-and-white striped paint job.

    I remember a few other soubriquets too – ‘Dolly’ for the old Triumph Dolomite, ‘Moggie’ for Morris Minor, and of course ‘Bug’ for the VW Beetle!
