My cars are perfect inside. I don't keep trash in it, and vacuum regularly. Well, there is the truck with the drooping headliner that hits my head. Just need to glue it back.

When my dad was still single, he once almost bought a XK-120 thinking it was a Chevrolet-powered replica. Then he figured out it was an authentic Jag, so he feared the maintenance cost...

Some friends gave me a ride home one night. He drove. She hung onto the piece of binder twine that held his door shut.

When the gas man drops his hose and caves in your fender and the gas station accuses you of fraud without even going outside to see it because it needs paint.
Other than Dodge not knowing how to apply paint in the early 90s there's nothing wrong with the body of this vehicle 2dings 0 dents.

You know you're an EcoModder with a jalopy if you add duct tape to it more often than you add fuel.

I'd say if you are a regular on this forum, you know you drive a jalopy. Many of us are trying to save money, and people don't bolt on wheel skirts on a nice new Lexus, or add a lawn edging air dam to their Rolls Royce.

How about clear lexan skirts on an Infiniti?
