Default Adage for car enthusiasts?

World over, watch enthusiasts are known as WIS. It stands for "Watch Idiot Savant" and the famous watch site Timezone is credited for it.

What is the terminology for car enthusiasts? If there is one, please enlighten me. If there is not, let us coin one and let TBHP be credited for it by posterity!

A car enthusiast is generally called a "Petrolhead", "Gearhead" or just simply a "car guy".

Team-BHP's car enthusiasts, on the other hand, have a special moniker : BHPian!
