Classic Captions – The 1970 Dodge Adventurer Pickup Edition


Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. This is a series of posts that are set to run this time each week, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous, snarky, or thought provoking caption that is some how tied in with the image. This weeks image has a very unusual creep factor, but we’ll get to that in a moment…


Last Week, we had an image of a Truckster on a Beach (Yes, again!), and the responses came in fast and furious. It was commentor dwbf11 who came up with a very clever caption for this image, and it went like this: “Dammit Clarissa! You’re only supposed to do the fake lasso arm-extension thing on the Rodeo photo shoot!” Very good, but it didn’t receive enough votes this time.

The winner this time was from Skitter, and I really didn’t care for the tone of this particular caption, but I let that slide anyway: “Investigators later determined the vehicle was deliberately driven into deep water, the surfboards were mounted incorrectly for floatation, and the blonde drowned because she couldn’t get the tailgate open.” This was the top vote-getter, probably because of the Blonde joke, but I know you can do better Skitter!

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks image. Instead of a beach image, I thought I would go in a different direction, with this advertising image of a 1970 Dodge Adventurer Pickup in a park like setting. I have to admit, the couple pictured scare the bejeezus out of me, like I’m not sure what planet they are from. The ad copy states that the Dodge Adventurer is the pickup designed to lead a double life… How very Twilight Zone… I’m sure you can come up with a great caption for this interesting image. (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate entries, and after watching re-runs of the Twilight Zone (or the Outer Limits for that matter), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this Bizarre Image.

    The Dodge Aventurer: It's Rod Serling approved!

    Norton was tired of the boating scene, and wanted to be the first in his yacht club to embrace off roading. Unfortunately, he didn't know much about the hobby and tried to embrace it at the yacht club. He soon found just driving around on the grass to be quite boring, and couldn't understand how anyone could get their kicks off this.

    "Relax Muffy, Mother and Father will return from their three hour tour very soon. We'll be back at Howell Manor in time for tea."

    The time warp tornado dropped Mindy and Rutheford smack dab in the middle of a really snooty New England yacht club party in 2013, where absolutely no one thought them oddly dressed or eccentrically accented.

    Only one man noticed their pickup and wondered at its amazing state of preservation, but he was the black sheep of the club and was tolerated only because he could sail like the wind. And because he owned a brewery.

    See Daryl, I told you that their ten gallon hats would fit together with their heads in this bag.

  7. $kaycog says:

    "Come on, Reginald, take me for a ride in your pickup, and I'll show you what's in my bag."

  8. Tanshanomi says:

    "Reginald, ever since you returned from that 'dude ranch,' your behavior has been positively heteroclitic! I can live with your wanting to put a western saddle on Tempest, but this new thing you're driving is downright insufferable! I shan't ride in it!"

  9. Devin says:

    Oh Cecil, can we bury the bodies here? They'll never find them, and papa would love for his head to be under a tree.

  10. wisc47 says:

    Guess how many people fit in the bed of this truck. Go ahead, guess! You're going to find out, anyways.

  11. LTDScott says:

    What is this, The Captain and Chartreuse? Don Knotts…err….The Dude does not abide.

  12. scroggzilla says:

    Boy, is Judge Smails going to be pissed when he sees what Spaulding parked at the 11th hole!

  13. neight says:

    Chicks dig the long bed.

  14. jeepjunkie says:

    Well Darling, I am going to take the Harvard boy on the right and you can have the two from Yale.

  15. Number_Six says:

    "You show up dressed like a lime mime, driving a workman's truck, and you still expect me to take you to meet father at the yacht club?"

  16. smalleyxb122 says:

    "Oh, Phillip, you look so uncomfortable. Why not remove your dickie and jacket?"

    An innocent misunderstanding on their first date, ensured that there would be no second.

  17. skitter says:

    On the appointed day, they dressed in unassuming clothes, traded down to an inconspicuous, everyman's truck, and waited for the representative of the shadow government.

    The Dodge Preppie never did sell as well as the Dude.

  19. fodder650 says:

    So you all know Trading Places starring Eddie Murphy but did you know it was a reboot? Here we see the original from 1970 that only appeared on the "Dodge and Lucky Strikes Variety Hour". The ratings were so poor that it wouldn't be until the Star Wars Holiday Special that we would see a show denied so vehemently.

  20. dukeisduke says:

    "Oh please, Rob, won't you introduce me to Don Knotts? If you do, I'll show you what an Adventurer I am, with the help of the tools in my bag!"

    • ˏ♂ˊ mzs zsm msz esq says:

      Helga was able to coax Rob with watt she had just said, but though the offer held potential, evidently his friend did not realize that here in USA we use 110V current.

  21. Rust-MyEnemy says:

    "If I fart, will she get the message and go away? Flourescent trousered beast woman…."

  22. Zeepet says:

    Her: Oh, Winthorp! I do love the side trim on your new Adventurer !
    Him : Yes, Mandy ! I do like a liittle trim on the side !
    Her : Take me now, Winthorp, I'm hotter'n Georgia asphalt !
    Him : Yes, Mandy ! Just as soon as the hallucinogens wear off !

    They call me John… John Deere.

    A young Michael Sarrazin and Stephanie Powers were not quite
    prepared for the enthusiasm of the Havard Theatre Group's
    rendition of " The Getaway"…..

    "Let's see that smug English fop Davey Jones top this!"

  26. lilwillie says:

    Honey, you know you won't get in the Yacht Club owning a Dodge and threatening to run them down with it won't help matters.
