Beater meaning

Beater definition

An old or collectible vehicle that is in drivable condition, but looks terrible inside and out, and probably is missing many original parts. Often used to describe a car that is past the easy restoration stage but still contains many good driving miles. It is also a term for "urban combatCar" and is usually used in conjunction with the word winter, as in "winter beater," which is a car that is so far gone, it si sacrificed to the salt covered roads of winter. It is a disposable collectible that is driven until it disintegrates. In other words, it looks as if someone had been beating it for quite a while.
