You guys and gal probably know this one but I thought it might be fun. I was reading some "history" about the bucktooths. The slang for the grill and the truck was dagmar. Anyone know why?

raerjim is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Dagmars are the conical shaped front protrusions on a grille. They point forward, like the rubber tipped ones on a 57 Belair. Coined after a 50's TV personality with very pronounced cleavage and pointy bra.

Summer teeth. That's a good one. Haven't heard it before.

I don't see a lot of girls with summer teeth. However, I do see plenty with butter faces... where everything looks good but her face.
