I've seen a few commenters suggesting that we catalog some TTAC "memes". Panther Love is arguably the frst, but things like "40 MPG Encore", "Trifecta Tune", "Game Changer" and the like. The forum is a good place to compile a master list. *Personally, I think the Chrysler minivans are a meme in and of themselves.

So, Pentastar Porno-Star, if you will?

I remember way back was "Big 2.5", "American Leyland", "Maximum Bob", "Rattlesnake Ed",*"Death Watch", "Suicide Watch", and "Birth Watch".* Maybe the 800 word limit and no HTML allowed too.



Farago went through a phase where he used photos of cheerleaders in lots of the stories when he thought the media wasn't taking someone to task or being too soft. It was funny for some time but then he started to use more racy photos and eventually some of the readers told him to cool it.

Bertel Schmitt being BS and very fond of Asian women far younger than he along with Japanese Bondage photos.*

Jack as our "Tame Racing Driver" (the Stig) and his gold hoodie featured in a few reviews.*

Vodka McBigbra as his companion (which inspired some of the B&B to try renaming their own ladies.)*

Z71Silvy and his reflexive hatred of all things Ford, suggested by many that perhaps his family was murdered by a Crown Victoria.*

Vanilla Dude (killed by Bertel in one of his many "ban hammer" binges) who would write long philosophical tomes on being middle class in America, the American Dream, and the proper cars for a man with a wife and 2.5 kids.*

I would argue Kenmore is a meme with his love of "appliance" cars which we enthusiasts decry and lust for MILFs and soccer moms.*

I know there are many more out there.*

@Lie2me, thank you.

How about the "meme" of all the dead segments of the US automotive market? Affordable Convertibles are dead, full size sedans are dead, midsize/compact pickups are dead, station wagons are dead...

Dead manufacturers. Lincoln is dead, Acura is dead, Scion is dead.*

Lie2me 02-26-2014 05:56 PM

GM= Government Motors (Man, I'm tired of that one)

tresmonos 03-07-2014 03:38 PM

I miss Vanilla Dude.
