** The car was a hand-me-down from a male relative (father, uncle, grandfather, older brother, older cousin, etc), who either loved 1970s cars, was a drunk driver, drives like a madman, or is too cheap or poor to get it fixed.

* '''Exaggerated''': All of the above, with the caveat that the car must be started using some non-conventional means, originally came from a country that no longer exists due to civil war, economic collapse, or a brutal invasion from a neighboring country, and has more duct tape than paint on it. It also breaks down about once a week, has been on ''60 Minutes'' more times than it's been on the road, uses ridiculous amounts of gas, has been mistaken for abandoned and/or stolen from a junkyard more times than it's been on the road, and was once disqualified from a Soapbox Derby race for lack of structural integrity.
