Hooptie finds it's origins dating back to the mid 1950's. The original, corrupted phrase is 'Coupe D', referring to a Cadillac Coupe deVille. Over time, Coupe D was rolled together into hooptie. Used to describe everything from "any old car" (thank Shaq for that) or more specifically a large domestic sedan. Popularized by Sir Mix-a-lot, the word moved from a mere description to a slur. Oddly enough, the word can have a variety of meanings, depending on the context, ranging from pride of ownership to an outright insult.
"Man, check out this new hooptie I picked up. $500 and the dash is still perfect!"

"Dammit! my (insert cool car here) is in the shop. Guess I'll mob the hooptie to work."

"Well, it might be a hooptie, but hey, it's got it's own class of demolition derby."

Any car, typically an older or particularly cheap model, which has had more than its value's worth invested in aftermarket (and typically cheap-looking) modifications.

The archetypetal hooptie is a beaten 70's-model American car with dark tinting and flashy (if not actually expensive) rims, but may include anything from an iced out Geo to a dilapidated van or Honda.

Compare with beater; contrast with whip.

A junky, wothless car that the owner had put money into that only makes it look worse. Or even comical. Examples would be spinning plastic hubcaps, a fin, offroad tires, and a cheap stereo from Value City that will be stolen soon because the window will not roll up.
