A car that tends to be older often with an addition of shiny rims and a lowering of the suspension. Car is driven with windows down and a motion being made of lowering and raising a flat outstretched hand. Yea.

Not just an old american rust bucket P.O.S. car, but any ride that is slightly lees than pimp. A hooptie is any vehicle which was once nice in its heyday, but is now past its prime. Hooptie is a statement of pride, not deragatory in any way.

An older American car that was once upscale but is now only driven by destitute niggers or mexicans. The primary identifier of a hooptie is that both the hood and the trunk are longer than the passenger compartment. Since all the shocks were worn out 17 years ago, all that excess weight in the ends of the car tend to make it sort of pitch and roll a lot.

Any car that the owner has spent more money on trying to spice it up than it is worth. If you come to Fresno, California, you will see an '83 Corolla with $2,000 rims or...or...HAHAHA! You will see a '94 Geo Metro with a $4,000 paint job and $3,000 rims I recently procured in a race because he thought it was fast.
A prime example of a hooptie would be an '89 Ford Probe with $5,000 worth of accessories or almost any Honda.
