Trying to find out the origin of the term. I did learn the origin of the word Jalopy (named after Jalopa, Mexico).

Overheard once on the 4500 block of West Oakland in

urban St. Louis:

"DAMN but that's a madass phat hoopdy he just rolled up

in! Where'd that motherf*cker buy *that*? Those dubs be

CLEAN."

And that's the censored version.

hoopdy = cool, not cool, ghetto-ish, not-ghetto-ish,

any number of things, but they all apply to somebody's

"phat" ride.

mike, methinks you might need to spend more time in the

ghetto.

But then, don't we all :)

Mad skillz, yo

....in these parts(Milwaukee/Chicago metro areas) a "hoopdee" refers to a $50 car. A real piece of shit. Definitely not fly at all. No self respectin b17ch would set her a$z in one. The polar opposite of a Lincoln Navigator with 22 inch wheels. Started in the African American vernacular but has since been adopted by us Euro-Americans, usually to describe our work rides. Behold the quintessential hoopdee. The 1975 Buick Electra 225 or "deuce".

Ditto. Mike and I in Ohio and Indiana (respectively) don't keep up on things quite as well as those of you of the larger cities.
