ghetto sled
(n) car, usually American made, that generally sports a rusted body covered with
house paint. Synonym of hooptie.

i've never heard this term b4 in my life.


btw it is impossible to make a dictionary because the slang is too dynamic. it changes too fast to be documented properly. the best you can do is archive old slang.

you might be able to say this shit in Uzbek but ova here you could get yourself shot for saying these words.
