: : I've heard, and seen in print, the phrase "La-di-da" used as Cockney rhyming slang for car. Does anybody have any information on the origin of this usage?

: I don't know that one. As far as I am aware, the 'standard' rhyming slang for car is 'jam jar'.

: DFG

Yes, and cigar is the standard CRS for 'la-di-da'. I've not heard it as car before.
