V.I.S.I.T.: 1953 C5 Corvette Commorative Edition


So today, this olelongrooffan was chatting it up with thebossman and spotted something I just knew was Hooniworthy pass around the round about out in front of one of the subdivisions we are building. It was a 2003 Commemorative Edition Corvette and I told Charles what it was and that I would be right back, see ya. So I jumped in my longerroof and got out on the golf course lined perimeter road and followed that C5 up to the tennis club next to the clubhouse of the toney community in which I work.

Once again this olelongrooffan can hear my fellow Hoons screaming, “A C5 Corvette? WTF ORLF?” A jump might answer that question.

Bonus Hooniverse Asks: What is This Little Bull Anyway?


As every one of my fellow Hoons knows, there are a lot of animals that are portrayed as logos for nearly every automobile company out there. Mustangs, Impalas, Bulls, Pintos, Bulldogs, Rams, and, oh yeah, Cougars. I captured this Mustang just a couple weeks ago and, at the time, I had no idea for what I would use this image.

A whiles back this olelongrooffan shared with my fellow Hoons how I had gotten a new gig. Well, as a part of that gig, I work out of one of the model homes we have in that there subdivision here in FantasyLand. And trust me, fellow Hoons, my bosses provide this olelongrooffan a pretty sweet work space.

But what does my new cube have to do with animal logos in the automotive world? Well, my fellow Hoons will need to make the jump to solve that mystery.

Weekend Edition: On The Road With This olelongrooffan: Live


Saturday, 5:45 EST

On Friday, this olelongrooffan cut out of work a tad early to hot foot it over to Burt Reynolds’ hometown to help judge the Treasure Coast Builder’s Association’s annual Parade of Homes. I have been doing it for many years and, as always, this year was a treat as well. Last night we all were treated to Aps and Tales at one cool restaurant and enjoyed some live jazz at another while feasting on some excellent seafood dinners. Today, up early and a long day of checking out some seriously nice model homes.  Afterwards, this olelongrooffan jumped in my longerroof and headed down Florida’s highway 9 for the three hour trip home. In Delray Beach, nature was calling so I exited and headed to the local Hess station to take care of business.

By now, I am sure my fellow Hoons are wondering what this has to do with Antii’s Our Cars post?

Truck Thursday: Because UNIMOG


So this past weekend, this olelongrooffan hooked up with my Cobra, Aurora, Street Rod and Mustang owning friend TheKenMan and we spent the greater part of the day seeing as much as could be seen around here in FantasyLand. As will be, or has been, related here in the Hooniverse, we experienced a bunch of cool events and at one of them was this fantastic Unimog this olelongrooffan just had to share with my fellow Hoons.

Long Shots: An Original Honda Civic Sedan

LongRoofian March 24, 2014 All Things Hoon


So this olelongrooffan has previously related how I am spending most of my day, these days, cruising the streets of a high end community here in FantasyLand whoring myself and my staff out doing whatever our homeowners need to have done to make their homes complete. As such, the time available for V.I.S.I.T. or Long Shots sightings are relatively limited. Plus, there are so many sights to be seen round here (RHD E30 Touring, an 80′s era M6 and a pristine ’87 Commanche in one day) it is difficult to capture images of all of them to share with my fellow Hoons no matter how much that is my passion. However, recently, this olelongrooffan was heading south on the Tamiami Trail down to pick up my cache of oxford shirts from my dry cleaners and passed by this Mobil filling station that always captures my interest. And today was no different. Can my fellow Hoons see just what it is that captured my attention?

Truck Thursday: A 1319 Diesel For A 13:19 Post


[Just a quick note: Here in the Hooniverse, we post about every hour and a half. It is based on Pacific time and in 24 hour clock format. Thus, this olelongrooffan often gets extreme confused trying to figure all this out while living in the Eastern time zone. I finally figured out that 13:00 = 6 pm for me and that is where I try to stay. However, in honor of today's Truck Thursday, this olelongrooffan has deliberately self scheduled this post for 13:19. Please forgive this olelongrooffan my Hooniverse Overlords.]

Now this olelongrooffan has previously shared with my fellow Hoons that my new gig has me hanging in a pretty upscale FantasyLand residential community. Now most of the subcontractors my firm hire put a ton o miles on their vehicles every year. As a result, bright and shiny new trucks and SUVs, as well as many varieties of luxury cars belonging to our homebuyers, pass by this olelongrooffan prett near every day. There was this one day however, this olelongrooffan heard a unique, almost guttural, growl of a vehicle pass by the window of the den of my $2,000,000 cube and I just knew I had to check it out. Zyncro anyone?

Hoon Tales: Country Squires, A CT70 And A Pontoon

LongRoofian March 10, 2014 All Things Hoon

1822 n 65ford

Way back when the Hooniverse Overlords decided to bestow this olelongrooffan a key to the vault that is Hooniverse, the venerable Blake Z. Rong and I exchanged a series of emails about content round these here parts. He encouraged this olelongrooffan to share some of my Hoon Tales and see what happens? Well, I did so and it seems this olelongrooffan did recollect a few Tales that some my fellow Hoons found enjoyable. Other Hoons? Maybe not so much. As such, I am always hesitant to share some of my personal Hoon Tales as, after all, this is not my personal blog. But then every time I express this trepidation to our Hooniverse Overlords, the response, thus far, has been a resounding, “If we don’t like something, we’ll let you know.” Well the last time I shared some of my ramblings, I was thoroughly surprised that so many of my fellow Hoons were so happy for this olelongrooffan and my career progress subsequent to the Recession of ’08. Having said that, if my fellow Hoons are interested in another, kinda all across the board, Tale from this olelongrooffan, please feel free to hang around and, perhaps, enjoy some more of this olelongrooffan’s ramblings. It’s gonna take a while and my fellow Hoons may want to wait until all ya’all are comfortably settled with a cold beverage before making the jump. And, once again, please excuse the wonkieness of the images as most are scans of decades old old school photographs and negatives. Please remember clicking on through is your option so no grumbling. OK?

V.I.S.I.T.: A Flat Black Rattle Can Mazda Miata


A whiles back this olelongrooffan shared my somewhat jaded experience down on toney 5th Ave South here in FantasyLand with all the seemingly every day run of the mill cars they had down there. Now I know that is not entirely true but just yesterday I was heading down Airport Road to pick up some plumbing supplies, no seriously I needed some towel bars for a home and the most efficient way for that to go down was for me to head south about 8 minutes, pick them up and get back to have my already on site guy install them. Ah sh*t, another digression.

Anyway, I spotted not one, but two late model Beemers of the 650 persuasion. Now just to let my fellow Hoons know, one was an everyday convertible while the other was the rarer fastback version. But there they were on an eight minute run to my plumbing supply house. And, by the way, just to the left of my longerroof is one of many exotic car dealerships round these here parts.

Truck Thursday: A Few From The Street Rod Nationals


So, a whiles back this olelongrooffan spent some time wandering around a field at the spring training facility of some major league baseball team (don’t remember which one and don’t really care–I just know it wasn’t the Cards) up in Fort Myers, and while there I spotted a few trucks at that Street Rod show. One of them was this OJ front Bronco. Yeah, a few years ago while this olelongrooffan was still living in Sl-Ocala, I picked up a ’93 F150 for some reason or another. H*ll, I owned a home on three acres and a Hoon just has to have a truck while living on a ranchette. Anyway, I called thejeepjunkie and as I described it he exclaimed, “Oh, it’s the one with an OJ front.” Ever since then, that is how this olelongrooffan describes this gen of 150s. My fellow Hoons will need to make the jump to see some of the other trucks spotted for this Truck Thursday.

The Ferrari Club of Naples: Cars On Fifth


Last weekend, the Ferrari Club of Naples commandeered toney 5th Avenue South here in FantasyLand for a pretty cool show, if you are into exotic supercars. This olelongrooffan decided to join the massive crowd and headed down to check it out. I had heard of the one they had last year and thought this might be something to capture and share with my fellow Hoons
