Long Shots: Elkys and Econolines

LongRoofian September 3, 2015 All Things Hoon


Because we all love Elkys and Econolines. Last weekend this olelongrooffan traveled the back roads up to enjoy a leisurely lunch with a long time ago girlfriend, the badgecarryingblonde, and on the way home over in the neighboring burg of Walnut Shade, I spotted a car lot with these two beauties parked out front. That Elky was priced at a mere thirty five hundred bucks. Click on through to see what else was spotted that sunny late summer day here in the Ozark Mountains.

Long Shots: Hows About A “T” Party

LongRoofian September 1, 2015 All Things Hoon


So a couple of weeks back, this olelongrooffan was out and about just checking out what there was to be seen around that mountainous city I’m calling home these days. Well, as I was cruising down the main drag that is Highway 76 there, I spotted these two ancient machines parked in front of a local ice cream shoppe. Needless to say, I am sure my fellow Hoons know exactly what this olelongrooffan did.

Long Shots: Early 70’s Chevrolet Impala

LongRoofian August 25, 2015 All Things Hoon


So this olelongrooffan was out and about at my new local to me human refueling station last week and this old Chevy was spotted. I have decided that due to my demonstrated lack of ability to actually identify the actual year of anything I see while out and about, I am merely going to categorize this as an early 70’s Impala. But I do believe it is a 1971 model year.

Long Shots: Quick Takes: In The Lot

LongRoofian August 18, 2015 All Things Hoon


My fellow Hoons may remember that in my Truck Thursday post last week where I had spotted that cool old International Pick Up Truck, this olelongrooffan mentioned how excited I was be waiting to see what other cool cars I would see in the lot of that place where I hang my hat these days.

Weekend Edition: Twofer Hoon Meeting Pleasures


As it seems fellow Hoon Anti has been out and about cruising all over the European countryside with a bunch of buds (at least that is what that Book about my Face tells this olelongrooffan), this olelongrooffan thought a few sights of what this olelongrooffan has seen around the Ozark Mountains this past few weeks would be in order. And to share with my fellow Hoons the twofer experience also experienced. But prior to that, I have absolutely no freaking idea why this gooseneck flatbed with a bunch of hay bales on it has been parked in this vacant parking lot for the past five weeks. I spot it every day on my way to work right there on the strip that is Highway 76 there in the Purple Heart City that is Branson. And it is nowhere near Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede horse barn/restaurant.

Truck Thursday: Long Shots: The International Edition


One of the perks of working in an automotive museum is the ability to see some pretty cool stuff the folks visiting us Hoon around in. Last week there was a pretty good size car show here in the central part of these here United States of America. A customer of ours from the Dallas area came up with three of the five cars he has purchased from us over the past couple years. Yeah, a 61 Bubble Top 409, 56 Nomad and a 68 Camaro made the trip up, on trailers of course. He left with a grey 39 Ford Sedan as well. But as those are rather pedestrian automobiles, this olelongrooffan didn’t even gather an image of them. However, on Monday of this week, this beast was spotted in the parking lot and certainly captured my attention.

Long Shots: A One-Time USMC Jeep Replacement?

LongRoofian August 3, 2015 All Things Hoon


So my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan almost cannot believe how much my life has changed up, for the better, over the past few months. And I can’t believe it was ten weeks ago that thehorsefarmer, thebarngoddess and this olelongrooffan headed out to check out a, then local, flea market down there in the Sunshine State. While thebarngoddess was out checking out a sweet golf themed piece of art work for their home in the golf course community they live in, we boys were checking out everything that could be seen with wheels attached. And when we stumbled upon this jeep type thingamajig, even thehorsefarmer was stumped as to what it was.

An Unexpected Road Trip Adventure: The Unexpected End Has Arrived

LongRoofian July 24, 2015 Road Trip


If my fellow Hoons are reading this post while at work, be warned it is a kind of longrooffan style, wandering all over the place, growing a white beard inducing kind of offering. A suggestion to wait until you are settled comfortably with a cool beverage of your choice may be in order. Or not.

So my fellow Hoons may remember this olelongrooffan is on a mind clearing Unexpected Road Trip Adventure and currently hanging at the B’s Nest in historic Rockaway Beach in the Ozark Mountains. Over the past couple weeks I have related my experiences on this Road Trip and although those experiences occurred a couple weeks prior, the previous relating of them to my fellow Hoons has been hindered by a lack of internet access, tremendous socializing and the fact that Hooniverse is not my personal blog so I can only steal schedule so many posts per day. After all, there is a ton of more interesting stuff to be found in the Hooniverse than this olelongrooffan’s ramblings. BTW, Welcome Sloan Glucker, future supermodel and race car driver.

Well during one of my adventures on this Road Trip, this olelongrooffan got a tour of Bus_Plunge’s miniature barn and spotted the Pinder truck and trailer in the lede image. I mentioned at the time, if I could find one I might just give up my quest for a GMC Motorhome and acquire it for future Road Trip Adventures. Well, brother Bus_Plunge, in the comment section of yet another of my ramblings, inserted the second image of one of those combinations and suggested my fellow Hoons pay attention to the tailights on that trailer. As always, listening to our elders is always a good idea.

An Unexpected Road Trip Adventure: And On To The B’s Nest


So after spending another delight filled evening with thefoamguy and his beautiful wife, this olelongrooffan arose from a slumber on the Monday after the 4th of July realizing moving on to the conclusion of this Unexpected Road Trip Adventure was necessary. (This olelongroofan does apologize to my fellow Hoons but a whole lot of socializing, intermittent internet access and other stuff has gotten in the way of getting these adventures posted sooner.) However, it has been eight days On The Road and afterall, thefoamguy needed to get back to coordinating the fabrication of foam rubber seat inserts for Bass Tracker boats, his beautiful wife needed to coordinate some medical visits for her aging parents, Bus_Plunge and his PrvtRN were preparing to get On The Road in their big blue burban and vintage Airstream and NotSoLilJim and Lil Mom have a whole dang bunch of family obligations to manage with their brood of two teenage boys and two beautiful girls. And BabySisterJoan? Who the hell knows what she has going on these days? So what is this olelongrooffan to do next? Well head down to the B’s Nest in Rockaway Beach via Branson, Missouri, of course.

An Unexpected Road Trip Adventure: Wagon Wednesday


So there this olelongrooffan was continuing on with my Unexpected Road Trip Adventure and I was up there in Greenfield, Missouri getting some go juice, and ice, at the local Casey’s General Store. Now this is not an old school general store as seen down on Old Route 66 but one of a chain of modern stop and rob’s seen ’round these here parts. Just across Highway 39 was this old BBQ stand which I am confident started life as an old school gas station back when Greenfield was merely a wide spot in the road. Now I can hear my fellow Hoons questioning the judgment of this olelongrooffan as to why I would suffer the potential wrath of the Hooniverse Overlords by including an image of this old building as the lede image in a Wagon Wednesday post here in the Hooniverse?
