imo = in my opinion
imho = in my humble opinion
iirc = if i remember correctly (I think)

Cant think anything else right now that hasnt been covered. What drives me crazy the most are the new camaro color acronyms. I have to go to the website to check the full color name many times. Why can't they use "man" colors .... you know red, blue, black, white.

Don't beat yourself too hard with that cane. You're pretty good with the acronyms already. You have IOM SS/RS LS3/6sp in your profile.

Also, look in this thread and you'll find an extensive list of them courtesy of CamaroSpike23. The thread is aptly named 'Acronyms' lol


Oh, ya, just do a Google search using the acronym in question. Works every time.

My personal favorite is TMFA. It comes up a lot when you talk to engineers or military people. Take a wild guess. :-)

Bump isn't an acronym, it just bumps the thread back to the top of the list.

+1 is agreeing with the post.

OP = original post or original poster.
