a generally flashy car that has no business being broke down. For instance, a Mercedes with peeling paint or a Jaguar with a garbage bag over the window. Can also be used when a car looks good on the one side, back, or front, but when you walk around to the other side, it is so messed up that you can't believe it is the same car.
Ever since James got rear-ended at that stop light, he's driving a striaght up hoopty hybrid.
