The polar opposite of the CoolCar. Often found in InjunCountry and {{Ruritania}}s, or in the parking lot of HonestJohnsDealership. Expect MyCarHatesMe to happen a lot when driving this junker.

Added DiffLines:

* The sloop ''Antelope'' from ''Barrett's Privateers'' by Music/StanRogers qualifies. She is described as having a list to port, ragged sails, leaks badly enough that the pumps have to be run all the time, and her cannons are described as being both cracked and having a low shot weight (4 pounds in an era when even warships often carried 12 or 18 pound guns).

Added DiffLines:

* The pick-up truck commandeered by John, Sarah, and the T-800 after the SWAT van gets wrecked in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' qualifies as one, due to it's almost total inability to maintain normal freeway speeds, let alone escape from the T-1000's liquid nitrogen tanker.
-->'''John''': Step on it!\\
'''T-800''': [''looks at speedometer, which is hovering between 50-55mph''] This is the vehicle's top speed.\\
'''John''': '''''I COULD GET OUT AND RUN FASTER THAN THIS!!!!!'''''

** For that matter, Earl's El Camino. One of the doors went missing, and Earl had to steal a door from a blue El Camino (that's been missing a door ever since, yet still on the road). It only goes up to a certain speed, the engine coughs and sputters sometimes, the air conditioner doesn't work (and neither does the tape deck. Part of it is justified; it's mentioned that Randy once put bubble gum in the gas tank to see if the car's exhaust would blow bubbles, and (due to poverty) Earl doesn't really take care of the car.

** Several others have shown Joy's Subaru BRAT to not be in the best condition; several episodes mention it breaking down, and it's also (due to the placement of the back passenger seats) not exactly a family car. In a NoodleIncident, the car got stuck in reverse, but since the kids still had to get to school, Joy drove them anyway and got [[TheTroubleWithTickets a ticket]]. In the same episode that mentions that incident, we have this exchange:
--> '''Darnell''': I wish we had a car that flew.
--> '''Joy''': Hmph. I wish we had a car we didn't have to start with a spoon!
--> '''Darnell'': Seems like such a shame to waste your wish on something ''that'' small.
