Ultimate Hot Rod Glossary – The A’s
“I’m gonna give my mouse some laughing gas, add some zoomies, throw on some big baloneys, and hit the quarter-mile with my tri-five.”
Okay, who talks like that really? Probably no one, although hot rodding does come with so many unique words and slang terms that it’s almost impossible to think of them all.
Well we’re going to try anyway – and we even have the big ‘n littles to call this the “Ultimate Hot Rod Glossary.” Judge for yourself and tell us what we missed. This week are the A’s, and next week we’ll bring you the B’s.
