    Once upon a time, an old clunker was called a Jalopy. At some point, and I don't remember when, the term almost disappeared from common usage. When was this? When the term Hobo went out of fashion? Before? After?

    I think that over time, the term Jalopy changed to "clunker" and then to PoS ;)
