Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Hey Is The Hooniverse Still Open?

Well my fellow Hoons, the Head Hoonitender hollered Last Call a bit early this evening just as this olelongrooffan was getting my groove on. However a whiles back the Hooniverse Overlords were a bit lax and gave me a key to the kegbox so I’m offering a free posting to all.

As a result, I am calling this the first posting of the Hooniverse Weekend Edition. There ain’t alot of text but a slammed and bagged truck load of images for your Hooning pleasure. Just don’t tell the Hooniverse Overlords this olelongrooffan snuck this one in.

This weekend is the Spring Rod Run down here in the World Center of Racing and literally tons of cool old shit shows up for the event.

I have seen several of these before, including the slammed truck shown in the previous images but it is still a damn cool machine even though not to my particular taste.

Just take a gander at the vehicles in the above image.

Check out the ass end of that street rod in the above image.

Here is the front end of it.

I saw a Cyclone Woody Squire of this vintage a few years ago for $1,200.00. I drove by and fifteen minutes later went back and it was sold. Yeah, this olelongrooffan is a dumbass.

I gathered up this image just to show my fellow Hoons the variety of stuff gathered together here for my enjoyment.

Yeah, a TR7 with a Bowtie transplanted. Can it get any more Hoonworthy that this?

And a classic Fleetwood just to jog all my fellow Hoons memories. At least it is not baby blue and a limo.

And at last, a longroof.

and, of course, a replicacar Corvette.

Now, this olelongrooffan must boast, I recognized this Bantam as a Bantam long before seeing any badging on it. Yeah, I know, I am a car nerd. At least I admit it. But that hood ornament didn’t leave the factory on that car.

Spotted this a the BP station on the way home and yes, that is a Bowtie on the front. Scared to know the history of this one.

Should be a fun weekend here and this olelongrooffan will try and get some stuff in around Mr. Brennan’s always fun Weekend Edition postings.

BTW, this weekend this olelongrooffan is sporting a 1984 Cutlass Supreme Brougham just for fun.

    I'm confused. First glance I see Starsky & Hutch Torino tribute, second glance I see Mopar plate. Click 'enhance' and notice Roadrunner logo and Coyote Duster air filter cover.

    I see dual headlamps and big rubber bumpers. I'm confused.

      I'm with you. I'm seeing 1970 Malibu in that grille and headlamp combo.

      It's a 73-74 Roadrunner. No Starsky tribute, that's a Roadrunner stripe–it just happens to be in S&H colors.

      If you look where the stripe wraps the C-pillar, you can spot the cartoon bird logo.

        Oh, Daisy.

      • Aha! Again my inept (and very brief) image search was not thorough enough to find the correct year. I never knew there was a Roadrunner in that body style. It reminds me of my '74 Gold Duster, and that sidelong photo in the post made me think someone had just stuffed a Coyote Duster in a Duster, as a sort of mechanical pun.

    Please do not be alarmed. Please do not question your own sanity.
    What you see is what is there.
    This is Daytona Beach and way before Vegas got a good marketing program, this is where what you see here stays here.
    The one of a kind place where things morph into what we think we are seeing, are not really what we saw….where else can you see what you saw, and still not be sure you saw what you see????….
    Everything in Daytona looks beautiful when the France family is involved….
    And it is the way it is too…..

    This brings back memories! Several years ago I parked in that very same parking lot during the Turkey Rod Run with my 360-powered 1979 AMC Spirit. I got into a fight with a local because I was in "his" parking spot…

    I can still remember the ride over from New Port Richey. I had to wear hearing protection because the 2.5 in Flowmasters coupled with a 2500 stall converter (non-lockup) in the 727 and the 3.54 gears meant that your ears would almost bleed at interstate speeds! Sadly though, I couldn't do it again today because I could never afford the $4+ a gallon for gas driving over there in a car that might get 13 mpg. If I ever make it back over there for an event it will be in one of my Metros.

    Did you happen to see the asking price on the Chevy Panel Van that's for sale?

    • $26,000.00

      • craigsu

        Oh dear. I hope it's worth every penny he's asking for it.

        • I dunno…straight six and a three on the tree…seems like a big chunk of change but hey as PT Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every day." Nice panel though.

  • 84 Cutlass Supreme!?!? Well, you had me at "hello!" Any pics, by chance?

    This little beauty was mine back when I was 20!
    <img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7258/6887000820_7858d399ca.jpg"&gt;
    Built 350 Rocket from the early 70's, dual pipes, t-tops, and Hurst style wheels and grille treatment. Did I mention that I am a bit of a G-body Cutlass freak? 🙂

    Sorry about the poor photo quality, digital cameras were not plentiful, back in '96.

    • The only image I have of it is this one. It is behind the Camper Special, I sold it for a Rolex24 buddy today and it is now in the hads of a new home salesman down in MickeyMouseLand. It had 170,000 on its clock. Been in Lobo's family since new and was a daily driver up until a few years ago. Got a grand for it and was glad to get it.

  • Finally! A 1937 Plymouth!

    Well, part of a 1937 Plymouth.

    Well, actually, just the grille from a 1937 Plymouth.

    Well, actually, as it turns out, just part of the grille from a 1937 Plymouth….

    May I say that the nighttime photos are a cool change of pace. Really enjoyed it.
