    Dear wordref friends,

    Do you know slang to mean "car" in an informal context?

    In Spain we could say, for instance, buga and carro (though in some latinoamerican countries it's just the common word to mean car).

    Thank you in advance!

    There are many, buggy, jalopy, banger ...
    Depends on the context and on which side of the Atlantic.

    'Wheels' is another informal name for 'car'.
