John: "Its a 15 minute run from dragonfire crossing to lookout mountain road, but we need it down to 12 minutes. Police are lining the road, the clutch is hot and slipping, and Rich can't drive like that with a cast on his arm. Who are we going to get?

When a hoopty
comes to a stop, and the worn springs nose dive under braking, and then begin to bounce up and down, long after the vehicle has come to a complete stop. Usually, emmitting a loud metal-to-metal squeaking and groaning sound because the rubber spring isolators have long since been eroded away.
This may be accompianied by a subsequent stall, and backfire, with or without smoke, and/or a radiator shooting steam out of the grille.
See Movie: Uncle Buck
We were at the local cruise in, when everyone started laughing at this 80's land yacht that pulled off a wicked hoopty stop. The driver thought he was cool, pretending he had hydraulics, but it was really lame.

One of the poster-child examples of an sad, grey, and generally unhealthy looking vegan
that emphatically advertises their lifestyle/diet is better than yours. Quoting statistics, what they really put in meat, and how the animals are killed. All in a defensive and appalled reaction as to the fact that you eat like a regular and normal human should, and could care less.
Man, I was just trying to finish my burger, but this veganaught jumped up and started going ape-shit!
