Good Morning all,



I'm not sure where to put this one, and this forum seems to be the catch-all for now. I work in the advertising industry, and I am working on a concept for a radio ad. I need a bunch of names for "a person who is passionate about cars" to pull it off. So lets hear it -- what kind of things do your family and friends call you?

I thought "enthusiast" was the term for such a person

Well almost anything would be better than what "Black Magic" (the car product company) came up with.

I think "Carcissist" was one of the worst ever

Tried to edit previous post...didn't work



Some of the more common terms are:

Gearhead

Motorhead (also the name of a heavy metal band)

Car buff

Petrolhead (via the BBC show Top Gear)

I refer to myself as a gearhead but then my wedding ring is this:¬*http://www.coolthings.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/gearring1.jpg my wife insisted and said it fit my personality.¬*

I think ENTHUSIAST is perfect as long as you take the broad definition. You could be passionate about economy cars, luxury cars, orphan brands, trucks, SUVs, CUVs, it doesn't mater your are an enthusiast.¬*
