When the owner of a Chevrolet Impala places a small metallic "P" in front of the stock badges on the car completing the phrase "PIMPALA". Usually seen in accordance with:
-a set of obnoxious Chrome rims
-fake "Chrome" trim everywhere
-cheap sound system which rattles more than bumps
-Check engine light on, misfire, or smoking
-Neglect such as rust, paint peeling, dents
That guy is a tool driving around his "Pimpala" with some old out of date 20" peeling chrome rims with fake chrome door handles.
Sell your "Pimpala" and buy a 95 Impala SS. Won't make you a "pimp" but at least you'll have a very respectable car.
Common phrase used as an answer to "Why do you ask?"
Usual Meaning: I was interested in your answer and will base my future responses around said answer.
Very similar to "Just asking"
Guy: Are you single?
Girl: Yes. Why do you ask?
Guy: No reason I was just curious.
Girl: Hey what are you doing tonight?
Guy: Not much, why whats up?
Girl: I was just curious. (Will generally follow up with girly phrase implying she wants him to hang out with her.)
