Truck Thursday: Topkickurban

IMG_3101

You know what my fellow Hoons? Sometimes having an old school Suburban in your livery is just not quite enough. I mean you can drop the shell on a one ton chassis with added fender flares out back. You can even lift it several feet, even put obnoxious stickers on the rear window and it still isn’t enough.

An Afternoon With TheKenMan: The Second Edition

IMG_3372

So after lunch was finished up over at that park with the big lake and we had had enough of the guitar serenading dude, TheKenMan, this olelongrooffan, and many of the Cool Cruisers headed over to that parking lot adjacent to that place with the big golden arches for the final, full attendance, car cruise of the Spring 2015 season. Many of the members of this club were headed back to places north in the next few days and they weren’t quite ready to let another year pass through their lives.

An Afternoon With TheKenMan: The First Edition

IMG_3397

So I would suspect that my fellow Hoons have realized this olelongrooffan, for now, lives down in sunny southwest Florida. And while in many areas of this great country we live in have seasons marked by the return of tree leaves, grass growing in the spring time requiring cutting and trimming on a regular basis and then brown during the summer on to the vivid color of those deciduous tree leaves in the fall, down here in southwest Florida, our turning of the seasons is demonstrated by the almost overnight appearance of privatized auto transporters over in the Big K parking lot on the Tamiami Trail here in FantasyLand. Yes, my fellow Hoons, spring has sprung here and the snowbirds are heading home. And their cars are off on these transporters like wayward children riding the bus while Mom and Dad pop for first class airline tickets. Alas, they both will return in the fall and another season will have begun. But what does that mean to this olelongrooffan? Well, my fellow Hoons, a jump will need to be made to make that determination.

Long Shots: 1975 Plymouth Gran Fury Coupe Brougham

IMG_3460

So this olelongrooffan has to share with my fellow Hoons that there have been a lot more pit stops than increasing radius curves in my life the past coupla months. Yeah so much so that thehorsefarmer told me to head on up to spend some time with him and thebarngoddess being “Tin Can Tourists.” “Besides, there is this thing about a Coupe.” My fellow Hoons who have been counting along with me will remember many moons ago when I was bamboozled out to Haven Lee Farm to assist with a Coupe then as well. Only that time it was a chicken coop. Well this time around it was a bit different.

Long Shots: A Goat and A Mini Moke

IMG_3452

So the other day this olelongrooffan was out and about just Hooning around seeing what could be seen. I was down at a fairly cool car target rich environment and out back was this cool Mini Moke. I spotted a red one of these many moons ago while working with Manuel Labor up there in the Birthplace of Speed. I remember they had it for sale and the going price was $12,500.00

Fort Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The EuroClassic Edition

IMG_3255

So there this olelongrooffan was, hanging out at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center and checking out some pretty seriously cool cars and trucks. Well at least to me anyway. As I gathered the above image of this sweet old ragtop, I tried to remember if I had ever seen one in the flesh and I don’t believe I have. It is a sweet and rare ride. I contemplated using this image as Mystery Car post but I figured my fellow Hoons would have it identified prior to completely loading. If my fellow Hoons are having difficulty ID-ing this thing, please feel free to make the jump.

Fort Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The Eurosport Edition

IMG_3242

So here this olelongrooffan is, back over at the Auctions America show at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center there in the Port of the Everglades, nearly beachside in that oceanside community. My buddy, TheKenMan, had hooked me up with some freebie tickets so I topped off the petrol tank on my longerroof, as that would be how much I would need, and headed over to see what could be seen. Man there was a bunch of cool stuff there and this next couple posts are about the EuroSport and the EuroClassics I spotted that day. Interestingly enough, TheKenMan was there as well with three other buddies riding in that luxurious new Buick mini SUV he recently acquired. Although we never hooked up (cell phone reception in that center sucks, well at least with Metro PCS) but he told me later they were sitting in the bleachers, as old men tend to do, and started yelling at me to gain my attention. The bidder’s assistant thought they were trying to bid on a car and he got all hot and bothered when he realized they weren’t. Me? This olelongrooffan was off in LaLa dream land and missed all of that excitement. Oh yeah, this 1959 Ferrari 250GT, which is the same age as me sold at $715,000 with no reserve. Extremely unreasonable to suspect this olelongrooffan would bring in similar dollars. There is a jump here if any of my fellow Hoons are interested in seeing some of the other EuroSport carp I spotted on the other coast that day.

Fort Lauderdale Auctions America 2105: Project Car Nightmare Edition

1973 Peugeot 504 Cabriolet

So recently I attended an AuctionsAmerica Show and have been sharing what was there to be seen and noted by this olelongrooffan for my fellow Hoons viewing pleasure. As I spotted these two, I came up with the idea of the PCH PCN and as I have experience with both of these makes of vehicles, I thought I would toss them out here for my fellow Hoons viewing pleasure.

1972 Citroen SM

IMG_3248

Yeah when this olelongrooffan was a mere whipper snapper my Pops, TheGentlemanFarmer, owned some pretty much off the wall stuff. He acquired, somewhere, somehow, a 1975 Peugeot 504 Diesel with a four speed for his kids Hooning pleasure. At the same time, he was Hooning around in a 1972 Citroen DS 21 Pallas. (Mom still had the Robins Egg Blue Country Squire) That DS was sweet cream in color with butter soft leather inside. Of course, the mechanicals on each of these cars were rather sketchy and thejeepjunkie and I honed our Hooning skills on the Diesel while Pops preferred to let the pros see to his DS. Understandably so. Now has come the time to make the jump to see more of these beauties. All of the italized text is from the AuctionsAmerica site and is their property used here without permission. Images are all mine.

Truck Thursday: UAZ 469B

Optimized-IMG_3234

So a few weeks ago this olelongrooffan attended yet another car show, this one was the annual AACA show at the Naples Depot. When I left, after getting some cars in the lot images, of course, I decided to head down this small alley on the way home and see what one of funky cars lots (you know the one I’m talking about, every burg has at least one) I check out every so often had around back. Well my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan was sure surprised to see what they had out back that day. But a jump will have to be made to discover its identity.

Ft. Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The Shelbys and The GTs Edition

IMG_3241

So a couple weeks ago, this olelongrooffan took advantage of some free access passes to the Auctions America Show provided by TheKenMan and headed over to the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center to see what there was to be seen. As I took over 110+ images, I knew I would have to break them down in some sort of organized chaos. Previously I posted about The American Classics , A Truck Thursday Post as well as a Mystery Car sighting, the first one this olelongrooffan has seen in person. Well my fellow Hoons, it is time to check out, if you are so inclined, to check out some of the various Blue Oval offerings I spotted there in the Port of the Everglades. However, a jump will be required.
