I am sure everyone has wondered where this term cam from?

These are often incorrectly called "Guibos." There was a brand called "Giubo"--short for "Giunti Boschi" (giunti meaning joints), and pronounced "joo-bo" in Italian.

So we don't have "guibos", we have a "Giunti Boschi" in our 2002s! Now you can really impress your parts supplier, girlfriend/wife and auto enthusiasts with your knowledge..... And if you hear someone say gwee-bo, you can tell them it's joo-bo, pal, JOO-BO!!

Uhhh....how about "flex disk", or "doughnut."

Sometimes I say "Guibo" and sometimes "jewbo."
