Mike Germanaro looked at himself as the King of the Road! But the truth was that he was fooled into buying the old busted-ass red piece-of-shit jalopy.

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.
In the ghettos and the trailer parks, you will even find some people living in jalopies.

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.
