If I was going to snap a promotional photo intended to entice people into buying my fancy, exposed-to-the-elements pickup bed seats, I probably would have waited until it wasn’t raining.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Quite to the contrary. If I wanted to entice people into buying my fancy, exposed-to-the-elements pickup bed seats (and assuming, for the sake of argument, that a Ridgeline counts as a pickup), I would demonstrate the seats exposed to actual elements.

    After the collapse of communism, my family went into some sort of passive schism. The communist supporters lost their ideology and their work. An aunt who was a principal received an occupational ban and cannot be a principal ever again in unified Germany. Her husband, working in military can’t even say that definitely had to change fields. The liberal part of the family, which I belong to, rejoiced at the changes. Everybody talks to each other, but soon 30 years later, you still avoid certain topics.

    Now, after reunification, people wanted new cars. The above uncle got a sales job – as most people who knew a lot about their surroundings did, ironically – and for that, he needed a ride to drive all day in. His Moskovich needed attention for every 200 kilometers driven, so he bought an entirely new vehicle: A Yugo Sana. I was only seven years back then but I remember vividly the shocked “Why?” in everybody’s faces when he did that.

    Sadly, the ugly oddling of a vehicle wasn’t fit to be driven 300-500 kms/day forever and had to go after a year or so, replaced by a random Passat. But for me, that was another early seed of interest for weird cars, politics aside. I remember how much fun we had getting asked with disbelief “What is that?” every time we did nothing but arriving somewhere. Internet algorithms throwing up this surprisingly positive review here, I thought I’d share the story with you guys:


    • This sort of post is Last Call at its best.

      Absolutely what P.T. said. You’ve tied together the dissolution of the Soviet state, proto-Top Gear, the freshly planted seeds in a young Hoon’s fertile mind and a Yugo in a succinct and personal comment.

      What’s a principal? In the US, that’s a headmaster of a municipal school.

        You guys are just the best audience there is.

        I think we have the same definition of principal…school leader, with the next level bosses somewhere else in some sort of administration, not at the school itself.
