Naija Car Slangs Translation Needed by mtyekinni: 4:46am On Nov 08, 2009
I live in a motown (motorcity) suburb.
I have been dabbling in buying & selling cars now for 9yrs (since late 2000)
It took a while for me to adjust to my fellow countrymen calling every SUV a jeep.
In the States Jeep refers to the Jeep brand- Cherokee, grand Cherokee Laredo,
liberty, commander, wrangler, patriot & compass.
About 2weeks ago I had a customer ask me to help her
get an american specĀ  Sunny, she explained that she has been driving
a vtech but wants an 03-05 Sunny. Of course it took me a while to
figure out that Sunny is actually Nissan Sentra - worse still I have never
heard of vtech ( I assume from her description that it must be a honda
accord- I am probably wrong smiley )

My point can Nairalanders please explain the terms baby boy, frog face benz etc, etc &
all the other commonly used car slang on this thread, it will be useful if new terms can
also be explained to us jjc on this thread.

Much obliged for your help.
