    "Car" is not known to me in Britain as any form of personal description.

    Maybe "card" - a slightly old-fashioned dialect use meaning an amusing person.

    Just possibly "car" might be a sexual reference. In my young days in Britain in the 1960s a girl was known as a "bicycle" if she allowed everybody to ride on her. Thus might everybody ride "in" a car?

      I have a friend who thinks a master baiter is the guy who puts bait on hooks on fishing boats.

    No idea, that's not a typical thing to call someone.

    We've heard "card" but not car.

    Card -- a witty or eccentric person, a "character." "The Card" is a 1911 novel by Arnold Bennett. "The word is now much less common, but it was formerly often preceded by a stock adjective, such as 'a knowing card,' 'an old card,'..." etc.

    This is religion. Try words and word play.
