Antediluvian

Antediluvian

<ant-tee-dee-loo-vee-an>

ancient; old; outdated;

extremely old fashioned or antiquated

The antediluvian car did not have windshield wipers. They weren't invented yet.

Memory trick:
Ante = before
diluvian = flood
So old it was before the great flood.

Used at work:
My antediluvian computer is the reason I can't get anything done. I need a new one.
