Another thread with much concern about the use of words and grammar was on the board a few days back. I got to thinking about my distaste of the term "dizzy" used for a distributor and realized it wasn't any different than others problems with other terms used here on the board.
I thought the thread did cover the topic very well in that "build" and "kit" were words/ terms used frequently here on the board, making them, pretty much colloquial ( characteristic of or appropriate to ordinary or familiar conversation rather than formal speech or writing; informal.)
Looking back through the years Hot Rod magazine writers have continually tried ( sometimes successful, sometimes not ) to introduce new words to the hobby. For what it's worth, you wont find the term Hot Rod once in any issue of the magazine Throttle ( predecessor to Hot Rod by several years). You will also be hard pressed to find the term "Gow Job" in any Hot Rod magazine before the 2000's.
My point is our language as our hobby is forever changing. Like it or not. Boy this makes me dizzy. :P

This topic will make us DIZZY!
Maybe we could talk about the term "Rat Rod" more, that should wake the natives.

This the general section of this forum, there is no rule that says we have to talk about models on here 100% of time, and after your thread about leaving and going on about freedom of speech, you say what you just did. Ok then
