It has been a while since I posted on Hooniverse so I thought I would catch you up on what’s going on in the Yu garage. A couple of Germans may soon be added. Plus, I have photos to share from my recent trips to Seattle, Los Angeles, and Japan. … Continue Reading

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.

Weekend Edition: Pretty Sure That’s A Lambo, Dude


So as this olelongrooffan has mentioned, I was fortunate enough to have attended the Branson Auction of collector cars this past couple days. There were plenty of sweet rides there and I wish several of them could have made the trip back to the B’s Nest with me. Unfortunately, this was not one of them.
