FIAT - Fix it again, Tony
LOTUS - Lots of trouble, ususally serious
PORSCHE - Poor Old Rich Sod Cannot Have Everything
BMW - Buyers Mostly Winkers (or something like that)
VAUXHALL - Vehicles are Useless, Xeroxes have a longer lifespan

Anyone for any more?

BSA again - B****y Sore A**e.

Not an acronym, but Frantic B*****d for Francis Barnett I liked - or was that the owner.

Actually, BSA B series singles were very strong, and there were lots of lovely Gold Star bits to put in them. Mind you, I had one really explode - 7 1/2 k was too much.

Re: Car Acronyms - Brian
I thouth that QUANTAS was "Qite a nine trip, arrived safely".

And BOAC was "Boys overseas acting foolishly"
Re: Car Acronyms - Brian
Sorry, can't spell BOAC, too early in the day for a Saturday
Re: Car Acronyms - Brian
The BOAC quote should have been, referring to their pilots "Boys overseas after cr*mp*t". (Official version given to me by a British Midland Airways stewardess).
Re: Car Acronyms - Colin M
BOAC, before my time!
