Not a lot of rhymes for it.



Those aren't hoopties, they're donks.
Yeah, the car really is a Hooptie.

EDIT: I followed your link and I think I have more:

Frugal Regal

and I got a laugh thinking about Conjugal Regal, as I strongly suspect my oldest niece was conceived in the back seat - But I can't prove it.

Now add the "Buke" car key (with my local bostonian, drop-the-ah, accent) and I wouldn't want to wash that creme colored (or maybe creme covered) cah.

I did some searching on the net and found some old Buick slogans...

Dream Up.
Buick. It's All Good.
Isn't it time for a real car?
Buick. The spirit of American style.
Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?
When better cars are built, Buick will build them.
Today the discriminating family finds it absolutely necessary to own two or more motor cars.

I got a chuckle at the real car slogan... It was probably a Jab aimed @ Toyota and Datsun in the 70's.

Ok, I added a poll with my top 3 choices. In 10 days the poll will close, and I will submit to whatever has the most votes at the time of closing. Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

Try to avoid that one, I've never found it to be very flattering. At least until I remember that they are just jealous because my Buick is so awesome...

-Bob C.
My wife's family refers to the brand (and the few they have owned) as "Boo-Ick". Of course, they have silly names for nearly everything except Mercedes. They call Subarus "Scooby-Dos", etc.

A friend of mine had a mid 90's Regal and she had personal plates on it that read DA BUI, because that's what her kids called it.
