Slang term for an obsolete, worn-down machine or hardware device. Derived from the misspelling of the word "Jalapa", which is the name of some town in Mexico that is famous for the Jalapeno pepper, and its former junk-car-scrapping industry.

Slang for a car, usually old cars, somewhat of the ford model T Design. Some cars that can be seen as "classic" today can be considered a jalopy, but mostly anything before "classic" like a old old classic.
There goes old man Jenkins in his jalopy.
