  • A vehicle that is far too low to the ground and has so little suspension that it "scrapes" along its bottom when negotiating any kind of raised surface in the road. Not to be confused with a "whip," which is a vehicle that, for some unknown reason is being operated by a driver who is OUTSIDE the vehicle. (Ghost-Rider!)
