Road Words

Anyone who has spent any time at all on misc.transport.road has been subjected to the word viatology: a silly made-up name for the thing roadgeeks & road scholars do.

This morning, I discovered another new word:
retro-vating, which comes from the Route 66 discussion list. Used in a sentence, you could say "Debbie is retro-vating a motel back to it's former 66 glory". Now here's a made-up word that actually means something and you can understand it at a glance... unlike that other word ;).
