Hooniverse Asks- Are You Known For Your Car-Affiliation?

Robert Emslie February 8, 2012 Hooniverse Asks 145 Comments

Carroll Shelby will forever be inexorably linked to his epochal Cobra sports cars. No matter that prior to their inception he had a pretty successful racing career, or that his Southern California shops also turned out a butt-load of other successful racers and road cars, he’ll always be the Cobra guy. We should all have it that bad.

Some of us do – one of Hooniverse’s favorite Hoons is the lemons E30 campaigner and unique-choice Ford fanatic known as LTD Scott, who is forever linked to the fox platform Fairmont replacement, the LTD II. Hey Scott! In my small circle of acquaintances I know someone who is considered ‘The Jag Guy‘ and another who is the NSU go-to.  And when judging at Concours events there’s alway a Ferrari guy or a Rolls guy whose vast knowledge of specific brand minutia makes them the only ones worthy of appraising such hallowed brands. They have, so to speak, been brand-branded.

But what about you? You’re certainly a Hoon, otherwise why else would you be here? That means that you have a certain bent for cars and trucks, and as such you assuredly have become close to one make or model more so than any other. Are you the Mustang guy? Or maybe you’re the M3 girl? Is that the case, how well known are you by your car affiliation?

  • Around seedier parts of the internet, I am known to have an NSX affiliation.

    IRL, I am known as that dude with a truck that will maybe help someone move if there is beer and pizza after.

  • SSurfer321

    Everyone knows me by my truck.

      Having a truck when there are piles of snow in a parking lot = great parking spots for a few days

      I'll have to dig up some of mine. I loved making people wonder what was wrong with me.

      Ah, here's one.

        I loved Christmas shopping at the mall after a big snow. I'd park the F150 on the 20' tall mounds of plowed snow near the entrances. I lost the pic but I had suspension at full travel on one side and completely compressed on other. So much so that I told my brother riding shotgun to be careful when opening the door so it didn't hit the asphalt.

        • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

          I can dig it.

          I vaguely remember taking this pic, and I think this was day three for my owning this spot.

          The first day, the RR tire was off the ground. Meh…that's what the T-case lever is for. It was winter, so the hubs were locked all the time, anyway.

          Retrofitted manual hubs due to distrust of the vacuum device which controlled the automatic ones. That, and simpler is better in many cases.

      • Scandinavian Flick

        It doesn't snow here, but there was a guy at my high school who parked his lifted Wrangler on the dirty side of the parking logs. I have to say, I kinda envied his VIP parking spots…

    I've had as many as six at the same time, if you include parts cars and projects along with drivers.

  • fodder650

    Originally I stood by my Triumph's as the only car of choice then I had a change of heart. Every time this car was mentioned I would defend it. I am seriously considering restoring one even. Am I known for this though? Somehow I doubt it.

    • pj134

      Saw this in a parking lot not too long ago.

      <img src="http://i.imgur.com/c052v.jpg&quot; width=500>

      • fodder650

        Sure it's a Pintostang but it's still a Mustang

        • pj134

          I'd rock one. The only real problem I can see with them is their engines and that problem is fixed easily enough these days.

        • Scandinavian Flick

          I actually really dig the Pintostangs. The Cobras are pretty mean looking…

          • fodder650

            Plus it's the unloved Mustang which gives it a special place. Even though it's only been 30 years very few people know about them

  • ash78

    "Hey is that one of the new Jettas? Looks good!"
    "Thanks, but it's actually a 14-year-old Passat."

    I guess I'm the VW guy among friends and coworkers. My immediate family (parents, bro, wife) have owned 25 of them over the past 40 years, 4-5 of which were passed/sold into multiple family hands–including our two current daily drivers. Before that, my grandpa drove a Type I while practicing law in DC in the 50s. The international influence in that town made him sort of an early adopter.

    I'm not a VW fanboi, per se, but I learned from my dad a long time ago that trading a little bit of reliability for a lot of driveability and enjoyment was a worthwhile tradeoff, even in a mainstream car. Among all the beige, I still think VW is among the least objectionable brand.

    • Irishzombieman

      I used to work with a dude whose family owned a diesel Rabbit they'd bought new ~1978 if I remember right. It had been in daily driver use right up to the time I knew him in 2006, was on its 3rd family generation and 5th or 6th family member, and had just gone over a million miles with zero major mechanical repairs.

      Reliability like that will make VW people out of entire extended families.

    • pj134

      Yeah, my grandfather started buying Mercedes…es in the 50's and my mom says when they were on a trip and saw another one it was shocking.

      You should get an account so you can start collecting your imaginary points! If you do, en.gravatar.com .

      • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

        Ash, here's what PJ means, it was very confusing for me at first how to make an account here. Make an account with intensedebate.com (I think you can as yo make a comment). Then you can make an icon/avatar with gravatar.com and link that to your intensedebate.com account. You can comment with that intensedebate account here and at atomictoasters.com and intensedebate account allows you to get email notifications when people reply. Just don't mess-up like I did and put in your email address incorrectly when making the account cause then your username will already be in use. Oh and you can change your screen name independently of your account name with intensedebate as well. Occassionally The Right Honourable H. N. Lucas, that blasted rodent, messes-up with intensedebate, should feel just like home did then.

        • pj134

          Don't tell me what I mean! I don't even know what I mean!

    • Scandinavian Flick

      Holy…. ASH!!! 😀

  • Well, I did drive two different Corvettes. The first a '77 I got towards the end of my junior year of high school in 1990 and drove until 1996. I then got a 1994 Corvette in 1998 and drove it until 2004. So for a good while I was known for Corvettes. They are still my favorite and I am a fount of useless knowledge about the minor year differences up to the end of the C4s. In about 2006 I got my first BMW and have had 3 different ones since then and still have the Z3 I'm trying to sell (sort of). I've been sort of soured by the whole BMW experience though.

  • $kaycog

    I'm pretty much known for being a Fordfan, both on the internet and in real life. I'm especially fond of this Ford. I guess "fond" is putting it mildly.

    <img src="http://www4.images.coolspotters.com/photos/31793/ford-motor-company-and-ford-gt-gallery.jpg"width="500"/&gt;

    • Inquiring minds want to know…have you had much experience behind the wheel of a GT? I, like most of the people I know–even car people–have never even sat in one.

      • pj134

        She has ridden one that a friend who works at the local Ford dealership picked her up in before it was delivered to the purchaser.

        No, I don't stalk anyone. Why do you ask?

        • $kaycog

          Good memory, pj! 😉

      • $kaycog

        Yeah, what pj said. I first saw the Ford GT in its 2004 Superbowl commercial…………I fell……..hard! My ride in a Midnight Blue one was like no other ride I've ever had. Guys followed us until we stopped because they had no idea what they were seeing. It took my breath away.

    • Here here!

    • Scandinavian Flick

      You're into GTs? Really? Why didn't you ever say anything?

    • FЯeeMan

      I hate that the GT is so out of reach for you, 'cog…

      • $kaycog

        Thanks for that. Like they say…….never say never. 😉

  • Oh Rob.

    Rob, Rob, Rob.

    While I appreciate the shout out (and I was going to use myself as an example as soon as I read the title until I read the rest), it is my duty to educate you on the clusterfcuk that is the LTD.

    This is an LTD II:

    <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/e2/Ford-LTD-II.jpg/800px-Ford-LTD-II.jpg&quot; width=550>

    It was made from 1977 to 1979, and was based on the Torino.

    In 1983, Ford split up the LTD nameplate. The full size (Panther) car that was previously called the LTD became the LTD Crown Victoria (and later just Crown Victoria):

    <img src="http://static.cargurus.com/images/site/2008/05/02/09/35/1983_ford_crown_victoria-pic-32818.jpeg&quot; width=550>

    At the same time, the Fox platform Fairmont/Granada replacement was introduced as the LTD (i.e. the car I have a sickness for). Not LTD II, or anything else. Just LTD. They were made from 1983 – 1986.

    <img src="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/2886/3101/32214050355_large.jpg&quot; width=550>

    Don't feel too bad, as I have had to give this lesson many times before. Consider yourself educated on 1980s Ford boxes!

  • Kogashiwa

    It sometimes doesn't take much to build up a reputation.

    When old Infinitis break down they do so properly, and are quite likely to be off the road for a month or more; and that's what happened to me the fall before last. The car went into the shop in mid October and wasn't able to be ransomed till near the end of November. My only other option was the bike, so that's what I did, pressing Honda's finest into daily commuting duties through a miserable Manitoba late fall (cold November rain etc.). Commuting by bike is pretty common for me in reasonable weather but thanks to that one month I got a reputation as a hardcore motorcyclist that I frankly don't deserve but hasn't faded away yet. I think most people at work didn't even know why that crazy guy was still on the bike when it was threatening snow and freezing rain.

  • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

    My car forum 'name' says it all.

    • pj134

      You put less than warm saddles made with Cadillac leather on cats and ride them?

      • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

        Y'know…that's an interesting idea.

        I need larger cats.

    • OA5599

      You are into Northstar-powered Jaguars with exceptionally strong air conditioning?

      • Northstar-powered Jaguar

        What a wonderfully wonderful concept. Anybody ever done this?

      • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat


        Wait…that's not a bad idea….

        Though, for the Super V8, I'd lose about 80 HP…unless I found a wrecked STS-V. Those things are rarer than unicorn farts.

    • Irishzombieman

      I still associate you with Benzes.

      • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

        Well, I moved to C&sup3; because the W124 was retired, though I still have it. Reminds me, I need to sell that sucker….

        This is Cadillac #3, the first being a '73 Coupe deVille, a yellow one, in the mid-90's, then an '85 Fleetwood Brougham d'elegance from late-'00 to 'bout '03 (HT4100 and everything), and finally this car.

        I just can't stay away from them, though I did consider an S600, 1995, for a while…then I did some simple math comparing the $3,500 asking price to pretty much any vital part which may fail.

        It lost…badly.

    • I have the same issue….wait…waht?

      • C³-Cool Cadillac Cat

        Don't sell yourself short.


  • fodder650

    You should have been the person used to describe this entire article. No one is more committed to one make or model then you are

    • $kaycog

      I tend to go overboard with just about everything I do.

      • PowerTryp

        Don't start drinking.

        • $kaycog

          Good advice. The few times I went overboard on drinking cured me. I don't like feeling like crap the next day.

          • PowerTryp

            You don't get hangovers? I hate you…

    • Irishzombieman

      Oh–one make or model. I thought $kay meant she was especially fond of that one *individual* Ford, up on the roof there.

  • HSA

    I bought my new daily driver while on vacation. It was not until the second day after my holiday when someone asked if the Lancia in the parking lot is mine. Needless to say the question was rhetoric. Actually I haven't had a Lancia for years before this one and none of my workmates has ever seen me driving one. Still, it was quite obvious for them who of the 45 of us might be the one to suspect.

  • no

  • fastminirob

    I am sort of known as the MINI guy. But I am a lover of classic british cars and cars in general.

  • pj134

    I don't have an "affiliation"… but I do have a wider breadth of automotive knowledge than most and a condition I will call automotive ADD though. I just kind of bounce around from what tickles my fancy one month to the next. This makes people think I'm obsessed with cars in general for some reason.

    Just because I can identify a car that was one of two built by its fuel cap doesn't mean it's an obsession…

  • danleym

    Considering I drive a K5 in St. Louis, where in a city of 1 million+ people, I have only seen 2 other K5s, I tend to stand out. Mostly, though, I think I just stand out as the weird guy who really likes old cars, and would rather spend the weekend in the garage than watching 10 football games. Which I don't think is all that weird, but I haven't run into many people around here who share my affliction.

  • tiberiusẅisë

    For the most part I think I'm just known as the guy who is a little special, bless his heart.

    • pj134

      Yeah, this describes me pretty well too.

  • 98horn

    I have a penchant for 2 seater fire engine red japanese sportscars. I previously rocked a 1991 MR2 turbo, and more recently sported a 2005 S2000. Sadly, both are gone. My current object of desire is a 2013 Grabber Blue Boss 302—But a have a feeling that a red FT86 ToyoBaru may be in my future, once they put a sufficiently hot engine in it. If I were pressed, I'd say I'm a big fan of muscle cars, but clearly, the heart wants what it wants.

  • PotbellyJoe

    My reputation at work, church and social life is that I know cars, car sales and people in the car world. Everyone I know well enough to know my reputation come to me about what they are buying, what price they are wanting to be around and if I know a good sales guy.

    I have almost all of the more commonplace brands covered. I think I know of at least a sales guy, or manager, in each of the top 20 brands.

    But with being "the car guy" means I get the service questions too, and though I am technical in my knowledge and know my way around a wrench, it is hard to diagnose a car's issue from my cubicle.

  • EA11R

    All my friends-of-friends know me as "That Altima guy." It's not as bad as it sounds; mine's faster than half of their sports cars.

    • pj134

      Which half?

  • Absolutely not. No way. By no means.

  • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

    Ha I read that as affliction at first! At work people come to me if they bought a new car or have a car question, here I am not remarkable at all, and that's great!

  • lreeves

    Yup.. I work in IT(answering the bleating cries of end users by phone and e-mail). I've had multiple people that i've never met say "aren't you the guy with the bmw?" when they get me on the phone.

    Cars owned:
    E30 318i
    E30 318is
    toyota camry(DD)
    Nissan 240sx(lemons)
    E46 330ci.

    I think they're on to something.

  • smalleyxb122

    I seem to have acquired an undeserved label as the Fiero guy. A few years ago, I bought an '84 Fiero to try to save on fuel costs. The '84 quickly revealed itself to be a total POS, so I bought an '87 off of a friend that was in better condition, but had a slush box. Over the next several months, I very slowly worked to swap the 4-speed from the '84 into the '87, and before I ever finished the swap, I found a good deal on an '86 GT. This is how I came to own at one time 3 Fieros.

    The '84 and 87 combined to become my LeMons racer, and I drove the '86 daily for the past year or so.

    There have been occasions of other Fiero owners stopping by my house just because I have Fieros parked out front, even though I'm currently down to just one and a half of the little buggers.

    To cap it off, any time a friend, family member, or co-worker comes across a Fiero for sale, or just sees one on the road, they feel it necessary to tell me about it. There was a Fiero for sale street-side about 3 miles from my house last fall, and 3 separate people saw fit to tell me about it. (one of them even told me twice, since he couldn't remember if he had told me yet).

    Over the years, I have developed an appreciation for my GT, and find myself defending the Fiero to many a disparager. So, as much as I feel the label of "Fiero guy" is undeserved, I concede that I may have inadvertently stepped into the role.

  • Devin

    Brand loyalty is for suckers! While I've got a bit of a reputation for knowing weird obscure details and being able to identify pretty much anything on local roads, I'm not affiliated with any one brand and never will be. Hell, haven't owned the same brand twice. But I suppose everyone knows I do prefer hatches above all.

    I almost wrote Brad loyalty. That's for the wife or husband (I don't judge) of Brads.

  • When Hooniverse first started and I made one of my first comments, somebody said, "I'm so glad to see the silver Ford GT made it over here."

    So, I'm either known for my car affiliation, or just for my avatar. In this case, it's a fine line.

    • You made me click. If I hadn't, I would have continued to assume your avatar was a Camaro.

      • pj134

        All this time I thought it was an AMS 300ZX.

        • Scandinavian Flick

          I thought it was a whale shark.

  • Only when people acknowledge them as cars.

    • Don't be so hard on yourself. At least half of your cars are cars.

      • That doesn't help if I'm mostly known for the other half.

  • Irishzombieman

    If I'm known for a certain car, in real life or online, 'tis my Metro. I wrote an article about it for [Redacted] (like they'd ever do a post like that *now*) a couple years back that at one point made it to the top result spot when you googled "Geo Metro". Friends and co-workers can't believe I keep the thing alive.

    I can't believe anyone on earth wouldn't.

  • PowerTryp

    Yes, the people around me know that there is ever a car question I'm the go to guy. It's a good and a bad thing.

  • Scandinavian Flick

    As soon as you mention even a passing interest in Volvos, you are pretty much branded for life…

    <img src="http://oi40.tinypic.com/34h97x5.jpg&quot; width="400"/>

    …not that there's anything wrong with that. 😉

    • Pile enough dead SAABs in your driveway and people will tend to forget about any previous Volvo ownership. Trust me.

      • Alcology

        Pile enough dead hookers in the trunk and people will tend to forget you were ever a person, never mind a car person.

        • Okay, I will put my ignorance on display…

          I know it's been around forever, but where the heck did the whole dead hookers meme originally start?

          • Alcology

            Before memes that's for sure. I always think of Dirty Work, but it's way older than that

            • I remember when growing up in Europe in the 1980's we used to joke that various criminal organizations preferred American cars because their large trunks made it easy to carry dead bodies…

    • Yeah, that was especially convincing when I found out you knew (or know of) my co-worker's roommate's 2JZ powered 240.

      • Scandinavian Flick

        Around here, if I see a Volvo that has been modified in any way, I already know them…

        • vwminispeedster

          Do you know the blue "noise bomb" 240 coupe? He races in LeMons with a Mustang? I love that car. The Volvo. Not the mustang. Only idiots races mustangs. Oh wait.

      • Number_Six

        Not really: the first Mazda was a 1981 626 coupe (rwd, 4M) and the second is an RX-8. Not much Ford DNA there.

  • Joe

    I'm owned five Toyota pickups, including my last three vehicles.

    But I don't think anybody's paying attention.

  • I was a little surprised when my Uncle-in-law called me a "Ford guy"…but I guess I owned 2 at the time, so…

    Everywhere else I'm just the car guy/old car guy.

  • I_Borgward

    I started off as the Rambler guy. Mostly because no one else had one in my town.

    Then, I moved on to being The Big-Ass Car Guy because of my ongoing love affair with mid-60's Wildcats, Rivieras and Deuce and a Quarters… when more than 3 different people call you the same thing, you know you've got a rep.

    Now, I am the Volvo guy. A side effect of having two 240s.

    I've never cared for being associated with mass-marketed consumer products, and am notorious for peeling off emblems and even "rebranding" items when they come into my possession. One of my old Econolines sported a VW emblem on its grille just for laughs. I'm averse enough to branding that the first thing I do with new clothes is cut off tags and labels. But, in the end, people tend to do it on your behalf anyway, especially when it comes to your vehicles.

    Sometimes you just have go with the flow and not fight it. Sure. I'm the Volvo guy. You betcha.

  • I'm not sure, I tend to be attracted to models rather than brands resulting in:
    (The first two were hand me downs from my dad, not really my choice, but the prices were right.)
    Who knows what the next one will be? I'm hopping for something old and very small, most likely Italian.

  • e46christopher

    While I prefer to consider myself an automobile enthusiast, and genuinely like many styles and makes, I do have a favorite: BMW. (And I should note that I am not a tool or douchebag!) Front engine; rear wheel drive; usually available with three pedals; goes, turns, and stops well. Oh, with few notable exceptions, nice styling and proportions. Since I was a kid, BMWs have always hit all of the right buttons for me. I have owned three, and currently have two e46’s.

  • vwminispeedster

    I am known for my Citroen affiliation but the Citroen knowledge belongs all to my Dad, Henry Hanzel. We knows them inside and out, I merely was given the opportunity to drive them in high school in Oakland. woop woop. Now the "World Famous" Citroen DS couch that brings LeMons HQ "french-ass-pleasure" (as quoted by Jay Lamm), that is all me. I really need to make more automotive based furniture. It is damn comfy.

    • vwminispeedster

      also known for having an intermeccanica speedster that still does not run, nor have i ever driven. "its just wiring, a battery and tires"

    • 2cver

      I can relate the 'ass pleasure' of a Citroen. Like riding around in a hammock.

  • buzzboy7

    I am known for my cars in my small town of 1000. Having the only Comet("Is that a falcon") and at one point in time the only Beetle("I used to have one of those"). Brand affiliation however, is not something I abide to and I don't think anybody can stick me to that.

  • Jim-Bob

    At work I am known for my almost irrational love for the 3 cylinder Geo Metro but have been known as a booster of other cars in the past. Specifically, I am also a bit of a Sentra guy and really dig pre-French Nissans in general. I also have an AMC Spirit with a 360 swap and a Cutlass Supreme Brougham with a 355 Chevy swap but both of my V8 cars will be sold off soon so I can concentrate more on my house. If I have anything left over after the house is done I will look around for something else, like a Swift GTI or an original Mini. I kinda want something a little smaller than the Metro for my next project…

  • I seem to have, somehow, and entirely undeservedly picked up a rep for being infatuated by old-ish cars that are a bit, er, shit.

    OK, my daily ride to the office is a full ten years older than anyone elses, OK, I have a tendency to trawl eBay to find brochures for cars that are, or should be, nearly extinct. OK, I'm an active member of Autoshite, and the "club" calendar hangs proudly over my desk at work, where it jars slightly with all the Mercedes-Benz corporate brainwash materials. February on the calendar features an Austin Allegro and a Leyland Princess, by the way.

    But none of this can possibly excuse the fact that all my colleagues say "That's a bit of you, isn't it?" when some crapped out W202 C-Class comes in as trade for £300. They all expect me to feverishly get my chequebook out…..

    …..and they'd be right. If I had the space I'd find it almost impossible to resist any car that I can experience ownership of for less than £300. Heaven to me is a field full of Vauxhall Senators and Mitsubishi Sigmas.

    • Okay, fine, you've convinced me to make an account. As it's not obvious, however, how do I go about acquiring one of those sweet, sweet calendars? Or is it too late?

      • There may well be a few of those ultra-limited-edition (and limited appeal, natch) documents knocking about….

        Introduce yourself in a new thread, with photos of your entire fleet and they will hail you as a God among men. You'll be positively swimming in calendars after that…

    Yes! I'm known for living life at 205%…

    I've influenced at least 6 people to get one without me ever telling them to do so…
    And when I don't drive a Peugeot with this number people ask me why?

  • If age of automobile in question >= 40 years, people will assume I am somewhat knowledgeable.

    Then they will ask me about buying one, I will tell them how great they are, how easy they are to work on, case in point when I swapped in a brake master cylinder off a different truck since that is what Auto Zone had, because the old one like a sieve and I drove to work for 3 or 4 days trying to always downshift and madly pumping the brakes when forced to actually stop.

    And then they shake their head and walk away to shop for 8 year old Honda Accords.

    I'm pretty well known for my BMW around town…everyone on campus seems to have seen it once or twice as well. the car has a stripped interior, 3point harness, and was bought with a good amount of the body damage for $500 :)…sorry for the douchey picture, it was in fact on purpose! I'm more well known around my hometown for my truck…since it is in fact loud, fast, and pretty gorgeous!

    I don't have any specific brand or model-related notoriety. In fact, I'm not even necessarily the "car guy" – having come from an automotive program, quite a few of my friends love cars too. I just happen to love more esoteric iron (compared to most of them), and have a wider breadth of knowledge (again, compared to most of them, instead of you fine folk). I do have one friend though (occasional commenter here too) who can match me though.
