I think this is one of the best bits


QUOTE Many male scangers also fit the boy racer stereotype: modes of transportation will often include small cars such as Opel Corsas, Toyota Glanzas, Mitsubishi Lancers, or Honda Civics or CRX's, modified with expensive parts such as UV lights, Lexus style Lights and blacked-out windows. These cars are also sometimes decorated with objects such as black registration plates (illegal except on military vehicles), 'No Fear' or 'Fast Car' stickers. This type of modified small car is sometimes pejoratively referred to as a 'muppet-mobile' or a 'scanger-banger'.

Clicky

Very accurate


QUOTE Dundalk, the northern-most east coast town in the Republic of Ireland, also has its own class of knackers, often referred to as 'scummers' or 'scumbags'. They can be broadly broken down into, and seen to have come from, large housing schemes in the town built in the 1970/80's. These housing estates formed their own gangs with a bitter rivalry, comparable to the hate seen between English Football Hooligans. They too sport a chav-style ensemble, but replace the Lacoste tracksuits with Adidas, Le Coq Sportif, or (in the middle 1990s) Kappa. They, in typical scanger fashion, sport baseball caps with fiercely rounded peaks. Their manner of speaking of late involves replacing vowels (especially broad vowels) with an i. For example, "man" become a high-pitched "min" and most of these words are spoken with a tightened chest, resulting in breathlessness.
