A jalopy (American English), bomb (Australian English) or banger (British English) is a decrepit car, often old and in a barely functional state. A jalopy is not a well kept antique car, but a car which is mostly rundown or beaten up. In terminology, British slang the terms clunker, old rust bucket or simply bucket are used to refer to decrepit cars but the favored term is old banger, often shortened to banger. In Australian slang the terms lemon, rust bucket, old bomb or bomb are used to refer to old, rusty and/or rundown cars. In American slang clunker, old rust bucket and bucket are also used. So too are beater and the more urban hooptie, which gained some popularity from the humorous song My hooptie by Sir Mix-a-Lot. The word jalopy was once common but is now somewhat archaic. Another information about Jalopy, a jalopy was an old-style class of stock car racing, often raced on dirt American ovals.
