Hooniversal Ninja Santa Claus 2015

LongRoofian November 19, 2015 All Things Hoon


Are any of my fellow Hoons interested in being on the receiving end of any of the cool type crap this olelongrooffan received a few Hoonimas’ ago, and as shown in the above image? Yeah, it is time for the now annual Hooniversal Secret Ninja Claus.

How does it work? Well fellow Hoons you have until nightfall on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 to get your name and snail mail address along with your Hooniverse nickname (if you have one) to this olelongrooffan over at hooniversesecretsantaclaus@gmail.com. In that email include some of your interests (mine are Hot Wheels and chocolates) and this olelongrooffan will match your snail mail with a fellow Hoon and voila! just a short time later a batch of goodies such as seen above will arrive at your door via a uniformed member of the national government.

Also, for my fellow Hoons residing outside the continental United States, please include your country of origin. In an attempt to hold shipping costs to a minimum this year, I’ll try to arrange the exchanges via country. Are shipping costs the same throughout the European continent? Canada? South America? Down Under?

One other item, for ease in sorting my fellow Hoons, please include your email address in the body of the email you send my way. Thanks.

As I indicated, due to scheduling constraints in the life of The Original Hooniclaus, this olelongrooffan is filling in for him this year.

The caveat? Well, The Original Hooniclaus himself says it best:

“I have a list and I am checking it twice. I know who has been naughty and nice so if you signed up last year and didn’t follow through you will have to send two crummy gifts this year to participate. Anywho, this is fun for a bunch of people so ifn you wanna play, then play.

My fellow Hoons have until December 15, 2015 to get your crap worthless possessions prized gifts off. And as The Original Hooniclaus threatened, this olelongrooffan will publicly expose any slackers who fail to get those gifts off to their fellow Hoon. This olelongrooffan is kinda like The Grinch in that way.

Merry Hoonimas everybody!

Remember to get your snail mail off and go out the garage, look in that Hooniverse swag box and get something off post haste. Or else.

Weekend Edition: 417 Cars and Coffee – 2015 Wrap-up, The Sequel


So last Tuesday, fellow Hooniverse contributor and also fellow Ozarkian, Marcal Eilenstein posted his wrap up of the final 417 Cars & Coffee of the 2015 season. If my fellow Hoons missed it, you should take a take a look at it here. Marcal and this olelongrooffan have similar posting styles in that we often take an event we have attended and break it into different segments….my recent Branson Auctions posts come to mind…and he had broken his attendance at this event up similarly. But as to fact his post was the Wrap-up, I can only presume fellow Hoon Marcal has forgotten this olelongrooffan is a member of the Slacktivism group over on that Book about my Face. I do, however, find it interesting to see what two Hoons attending the same event find to be notable and worth sharing. Click on through to see what this olelongrooffan found worthy of sharing.

But first, the obligatory ’55 Chevy Belair Hardtop, seldom noted by this author and the only Tri 5 spotted that day by this olelongrooffan.

Weekend Edition: Finishing Up At The Branson Auction


Just to finish this olelongrooffan’s sharing of the stuff I saw while out at the Branson Auction a whiles back. If my fellow Hoons believe that General Motors is the only manufacturer to build a Super Sport you would be sorely mistaken. This 1951 Crosley Super Sport precedes those GM products by at least four years. And this wasn’t included previously in my Detroit Steel post because these were built in Marion, Indiana. It was a cute little buggy and sold for a fee inclusive $9,180.00. I would call that well sold. Click on through to see a couple more, if you like.

Weekend Edition: Saturday Imports Spotted At The Branson Auction


So it was nigh onto a month ago this olelongrooffan decided to part with a trio of fins and attend the Branson Auction to see what was up with the only classic cars auction around these here parts. Previously, the Friday cars were shared and on Wednesday, this olelongrooffan was honored to have my Saturday Detroit Steel posted by my Hooniverse Overlords in a rare, at least for me, early morning timeframe. Thanks Guys. But, like yesterday’s ole school newspaper, that is old news. Well, today this olelongrooffan shares with my fellow Hoons the Imports seen on that warm Saturday in October here in the Ozark Mountains.

Truck Thursday: Some Of The Saturday Trucks Seen At The Branson Auction


I logged into all things Hoon recently and realized I had not completed my coverage of the Branson Auction from a coupla weeks back so I thought I would get this update gathered up for my fellow Hoon’s Truck Thursday enjoyment.

This olelongrooffan has related that on more than one occasion I would spot a vehicle and in short order would see another similar type ride. Well, my fellow Hoons, that tradition continues on, this time in the version of Tow Mater.


The sightings of these things since I moved to the Ozarks continues to amaze this olelongrooffan even if this one is in the form of a golf cart. Feel free to click on through to see some of the other trucks spotted that Saturday.

Some Of The Detroit Steel Seen At The Branson Auction


So a couple weeks ago, the Branson Auction was held here in the Live Music Capital of The World. This olelongrooffan had a trio of fins burning a hole in the pocket of those designer jeans I purchased a few years back so I thought I would part with them to see what could be seen at that show. After having attending the Barrett-Jackson and the Auction America shows earlier this year I was curious to see what this burg had to offer. Actually, it was quite nice. It was run like the promoter had 37 years experience at it and I had a great time. As an aside, these are the Friday cars lined up to head into the auction arena. See that blue Caprice (well GM anyway) longroof? Crossed the block and sold for $1,200.00. Yeah, it was bargain Friday that day to be sure.

Now remember, these are gavel prices and include no fees.

LongRoofian October 27, 2015 All Things Hoon

austin permit

Late last week my grand nephew, nephew NotSoLilJim’s youngest son and brother Bus_Plunge’s youngest grandson, got his learner’s permit allowing him to drive an automobile, accompanied by a licensed driver, here in the great ShowMe State. His Mom, LilMom posted Pickle Boy’s new status on her page in that book about her face. Please make the jump to see some of the comments about her status and leave your opinion in the comments.

Truck Thursday: Long Shots: Ever Seen A Jeep Delivery?


If my fellow Hoons happened to read this olelongrooffan’s error filled Long Shots post last Tuesday, it may be remembered that it was the sighting of something seen by Bus_Plunge and myself that prompted me to head back over to see that highly desirable Land Cruiser. It was a Jeep Delivery and feel free to click on through to see more of it.

Truck Thursday: V.I.S.I.T.: An O.J. Front Centurion From The Hills


Earlier this week, this olelongrooffan was returning to Bus_Plunge’s B’s Nest cabin down near the shores of Lake TaneyCoMo. As I was cruising down that Eisenhour Interstate Highway System like US 65, I spotted what looked like a Ford Bronco with the rear top removed.


It wasn’t until I pulled my longerroof out into the passing lane that I noticed this Bronco had four doors. “Centurion!,” I actually said out loud. As getting back to the lake in a rush wasn’t necessary, this olelongrooffan decided to head back over to the slow lane and see where this rarity was headed. I hadn’t seen one in the flesh, so to speak, in years and hadn’t see any info on one since fellow Hoon, Marcal, posted this a few months ago.

By the way, my apologies to my fellow Hoons for the lack of clarity of the above two images. I took them with my old 28dollarebayacquired image taker I keep in the pocket of my longerroof for use in an occassion such as this.

Long Shots: 1974 Toyota Land Cruiser

LongRoofian October 20, 2015 All Things Hoon


So last week while Bus_Plunge was carrying this olelongrooffan’s sorry ass over to that Irish auto parts store to pick up a new battery for my longerroof, I mentioned I had seen a 74 Land Cruiser over by the dam the previous week. He mentioned it was either a rust bucket or $15K.
