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

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.

Wagon Wednesday: Ft. Lauderdale Auctions America 2015 Edition
The Longroofs and The Micro Cars

IMG_3261

In honor of Wagon Wednesday here in the Hooniverse, this olelongrooffan thought I would share with my fellow Hoons some of the longroofs I spotted over at Auctions America a couple of weeks ago. There really was a mere handful of them there and they all were from the mid 50’s and mostly of the Ford variety. There was not one from the 60’s nor the 70’s that I remember spotting anyway. You can see one of those longroofs, with that lovely clam shell rear opening in this lede image but my fellow Hoons will need to make the jump to see the others and oh yeah, the micro cars.

Ft. Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The Truck Thursday Edition

IMG_3310

So there this olelongrooffan was, wandering around the Ft. Lauderdale Auctions America 2015 checking out some of the cool carp those classic car owners had brought out to dump on some unsuspecting sell to some educated buyers so those same owners could pick up something shiny and new to them to take home and enjoy before beginning this cycle all over again. And, in this olelongrooffan’s usually pseudo folksy style of “Hey take a look at What I Saw Today” feel free to make the jump to, in fact, see some of the trucks and truckettes spotted that Saturday afternoon.

Ft. Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The American Classics Edition

IMG_3247

So my buddy TheKenMan set this olelongrooffan up with a free pass to the Auctions America gig over in Fort Lauderdale this past weekend. As the Convention Center is located in the Port of the Everglades about a 90 minute drive across Alligator Alley, I decided to head over there on Saturday to seen what could be seen. For lack of a better place to begin, this olelongrooffan is going to kick off with The American Classics Edition. Further installments will include Truck Thursday, a little something for mdharrel, another something for the ever lovely $kaycog and more.  But alas, I am getting ahead of myself. In order for my fellow Hoons to see something more special than this Special, a jump will be required.

Weekend Edition: Mystery Car Sighting: The Westland Empire Aristocrat Edition

Mystery-CarAug05

So awhiles back in my V.I.S.I.T. post about that Deux Chevaux this olelongrooffan had spotted, I mentioned I was returning from picking up TheKenMan’s generously provided AuctionsAmerica weekend pass for their auctions over the past few days. So on this past Saturday morning after making sure the underside of the lid of my washing machine was clean, (yeah that is a joke only a few of my fellow Hoons and thejeepjunkie will get), this olelongrooffan headed across Alligator Alley for the 93 minute drive to the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center there in the Port of the Everglades for the show that is Auctions America. Now while I was there I saw a whole bunch of cool ass carp, a lot of which I had seen before but it was cool to see it all once again. There was, however, one vehicle I have only seen in a partly obstructed view and that was here in the Hooniverse. Yes, it was one of the esteemed Mr. Esmlie’s Mystery Car posts from way back in 2011 which, surprisingly, this olelongrooffan remembered. Check that post out here and the ultimate identification of that ride by none other than commenter P161911. Yeah, my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan was pure assed flabbergasted to have spotted it and even more so to have remembered it. I guess the blue Skyy hasn’t killed all of the brain cells in this double nickeled aged old man.

V.I.S.I.T: Citroen Deux Chevaux

IMG_3104

So today this olelongrooffan was returning from TheKenMan’s pad where I picked up my pass for the AuctionsAmerica Auction next weekend over in Fort Lauderdale. As I was cruising down Airport Road here in FantasyLand, I squinted my eyes to take in a rarely seen shape in the next lane over just up a ways. Well my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan grabbed my new Bradley Brownell recommended Canon image taker, slowed my longerroof down a tad bit and grabbed a few images of it out the front windscreen.

1959 BMW 600: “The Limousine”

IMG_2986

So awhiles back this olelongrooffan was up in the City of Palms and spotted something previously heard of and only seen in pictures. Yeah, my fellow Hoons this was the first time I had spotted a BMW 600, “The Limousine” if you will. And it dates from 1959, the same age as the Daytona International Speedway and this olelongrooffan. Click on through to see some more of it.

Eurotripper European Car Show: The Water Cooled Edition

IMG_2955

So it was a couple weekends ago this olelongrooffan was up at JetBlue Park in the City of Palms checking out the Eurotripper European Car Show. As I mentioned previously, there was large contingency of VDubs, both air and water cooled, but they were not the only Eurocars to show up that day. One of them was this seriously cool Land Rover as well as many more. However, to see them my fellow Hoons will have to make the jump.
