Welcome to another edition of the Hooniverse Classic Captions Contest, wherein we show you an old advertising or promotional photo, and y’all come up with witty, clever, and snarky — or in rare cases, profoundly moving — quips to accompany it.
Looking back at recent contests, I realized that the past six have featured women somewhere in or around the vehicle, half of them in swimsuits. Lest people accuse me of pandering the Hooniverse’s predominantly male readership and their tendency to go there in their comments whenever possible, I present you with this human-being-free photo of two ’70s Triumph roadsters in a bucolic glade surrounded only by God’s wild creatures. I am confident that nobody can twist this into something crass and unseemly.
…NO, WAIT! I didn’t mean that as a challenge, really!
Our Tatra 603 contest was two weeks ago due to my habit of waiting until the last minute a family emergency (everything’s fine now; thank you for asking). And, as I mentioned above, the ladies in the photo prompted “the usual.” Rust-MyEnemy is on a streak, having one the last two vote-fests, this time with:
“… He described it as long, kind of slim and rounded at the end, with a little eye in the middle. I took a look at it and he was right.”
“Yes, it sure is a wierd looking car.”
“Car? Oh, right. Yeah, his car’s funny looking, too. “
Perpetual high finisher Alff took second place in the voting:
Eastern European style, while not unappealing, is different than what is seen in the West. Consider, for example, how close together the headlights are.
Waddaknow, two winners whom I have both met personally. RL win for the win!
