So, there I am driving around town and I'm thinking to myself, which is quite often and very common... and I think, wouldn't it be handy to have a JNC dictionary to help with all the terms that get tossed around? I mean, before I came here I had no idea what a Hakosuka was, and I'm still trying to figure out "hoon"

Being mostly a Toyota guy, I often have no idea what the Datsun or Mazda guys are talking about. And what about those drift guys.... what the heck are they trying to say? Of course there are plenty more Japanese terms that have crossed over to the western world that could also use some explaining.

So it dawned on me that as soon as I got home, I'd log on to the JNC forum and call out to the powers that be - the all powerful and mighty masters of JNC and GrandJDM, in order to request an official JNC / GrandJDM Urban Dictionary.

Now I know Ben & Dan are off enjoying themselves at Motoring J Style this weekend, and heaven knows what Kev and Van are up to, but I pose this to you, the readers and members of the forum - what say you?
Yea :tu: or Nay :td: ?
I've even included a poll that awaits for your answers!

Heck, this is something that could even work it's way into the magazine.

Well hoon is an Aussie term that means gearhead, but it tends to have some negative connotations about driving too fast and misbehaving behind the wheel.

But...you have to take it in context of the Aussie sense of humour, where your best friend is " a complete bastard" but your worst enemy is only "a bit of a bastard".

Aussies say negative things without intending to be mean, so if you are into cars you will be called a bloody hoon many many times :)

Hah, I prefer to be termed a hoon, as opposed to a boyracer.

It just makes me sound so much older and more experienced :lol:

Maybe we could get an Aussie slang dictionary too? I've always wanted to talk like Alf Stewart on "Home & Away". Stone the flamin' crows!

Australia also gets a lot of Americanisms.
But over the last few years I have been hearing Americans uttering Aussieisms (and it's pronounced 'ozzie' guys)
Unfortunately most of them are the blue variety.

Actually, should do one that teaches Americans how to speak like an Aussie.
For starters it's called Strain (Australian). We have the cities of Melbin(Melbourne), Synny(Sydney), and Brizbin or brizzy(Brisbane).
And you need to forget the letter R. :D
We drive nIssAns (not Neessahns) dAtsuns (not Dahtsuns) and soobaroos (however the hell you say it) :?

For the purposes of Toyotageek's upcoming dictionary :) "Bogan" is essentially the same as "Hoon" but with added redneck :D

My wife used the term "arvo" twice in an e-mail to an American friend yesterday. The friend had to google the word to find out what it meant.

It's Aussie slang for "afternoon" BTW.
