being pulled over or otherwise harrassed by cops for being in an old, cheap or rundown vehicle. Especially in an affluent area.
my friend complained on facebook that she was frightened by two belligerent undercover cops who pulled her over for a busted headlight. After she insisted that uniformed patrolmen show up to reasure her that they were genuine, one of them commented " oh they were probably real cops, they're just used to dealing with rough neighborhoods and after all you're in a pretty old car" I commented on her post " you've been the victim of shitbox profiling"
