  • Woody or Woodie?

    With the debut of the '47 prototype at the Museum for this International Meet, downplaying the answer is not an option. Is it a Woodie? Or a Woody? The Museum display says, "Woody." Not one of Merriam Webster's ancient references.

      He actually prefers Woodrow.

      I've used both. I'm not sure it matters since it's more of a nickname than a model name.

        They are practicing fiscal responsibility. There is one less letter in woody than woodie!

          Generally, in the old car world, it's Woodie.

          Example: the National Woodie Club...

            Sadly, most internet references to the Jan & Dean/Brian Wilson song that made the term, um, ubiquitous seem to be from transcription, not the copyrighted text. And we're sick of the Beach Boys anyway. Right?

            I hope no one will prove the point by the standard reference work on the subject, Urban Dictionary.

              Distinction not cost effective.

                  I think you're thinking of the old Kingsmen song....
