I propose a master thread / sticky that is an index of common terms / acronyms used in this forum (and others). I had someone ask me what MVS was. I politely explained there are other forums but with mutual respect for each other. Anyway, at first I didn't know what FCP was and I had never seen JY but figured that out from context. Is an indie shop indie or indy? So maybe a master thread to serve as an index to terms. What do you think? Do you have contributions? Did I FUBAR some of my terms or the whole thing? Should it be alphabetical or sorted first by subject like parts, parts suppliers, websites, other? Maybe this belongs in a different forum on this site? Maybe this has been done before but I have not seen it. Thanks everyone for any contributions!

stealer - Volvo dealer
ee - EEuroparts
FCP - FCP Groton
IPD - IPD (maybe list URLs for websites?)

Apologies, didn't realize you were targeting only these vintages.
That one holds a special place in my heart and wallet as it tore up my savings account at the time.
