Spotted: 1986 Porsche 959 Paris-Dakar Rally Recreation

unnamed (3)

There I am, at the 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiesfest race, freshly done with my driving stint, walking over to my friend’s garage, when suddenly! Bam!

In the corner of my eye I see it. I freeze in place.

Whut? Did I just see that? Did I just really just see that?

Ho. Lee. Shit.

Truck Thursday: V.I.S.I.T.: An O.J. Front Centurion From The Hills


Earlier this week, this olelongrooffan was returning to Bus_Plunge’s B’s Nest cabin down near the shores of Lake TaneyCoMo. As I was cruising down that Eisenhour Interstate Highway System like US 65, I spotted what looked like a Ford Bronco with the rear top removed.


It wasn’t until I pulled my longerroof out into the passing lane that I noticed this Bronco had four doors. “Centurion!,” I actually said out loud. As getting back to the lake in a rush wasn’t necessary, this olelongrooffan decided to head back over to the slow lane and see where this rarity was headed. I hadn’t seen one in the flesh, so to speak, in years and hadn’t see any info on one since fellow Hoon, Marcal, posted this a few months ago.

By the way, my apologies to my fellow Hoons for the lack of clarity of the above two images. I took them with my old 28dollarebayacquired image taker I keep in the pocket of my longerroof for use in an occassion such as this.

V.I.S.I.T: 1964 Ford Zodiac III


The Thorn in Mistley is well known locally, and probably regionally, for its gastronomic credibility. People flock from miles around to sample some of the best seafood in the North East Essex area, all washed down with wine of suitable provenance. As a result of this it’s almost routine that there be something of interest parked outside.

Often as I walk past there are too many patrons sitting at the pavement tables for me to start taking photos in front of them, and so far I’ve missed out on a Lamborghini Countach, a Morgan Aero 8 and a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing through either my own cowardice or through forgetting to have a camera with me. This time my quarry was nowhere near as exotic, but certainly didn’t lack appeal nonetheless.

V.I.S.I.T. – Hot August Nights (and Days) Edition


For this round of V.I.S.I.T., I just wanted to share with you a roundup of the interesting machines I’ve seen this summer as I’m out and about in the Queen City. Some of them are cool, some are weird, but they’re all interesting. Check it out. … Continue Reading

Vehicles My Wife Saw: Mercedes Benz O 319D and DKW F91 Coupe


Last weekend my wife went off to the grocery store while I worked on some writing I had to get done. Just a bit after she left, I received a text message that she had “seen some weird old cars” that I might like. The next message was “Mercedes Camper van?”. That’s when I got excited. She was already most of the way to the store, so of course I asked if she would stop on her way back home to snap a few more photos. Then it got even better.

V.I.S.I.T. : Remember That? Edition, and a Quick Update


It’s been a while since we did a V.I.S.I.T. feature, and that’s a gosh darn shame, don’t you think? Let’s revisit a feature that used to be one of my favorite things about Hooniverse. … Continue Reading

Supergreen in Helsinki: 1988 Peugeot 205 Green


The weekend was crammed full of Peugeot 205 content, so I’m riding the coattails of that goodness even today. As a Helsinki sighting, here’s a very bright little Pug for your Tuesday enjoyment.

The 205 “Green” was a special edition available for a number of years during the 205’s tenure, and it was a differently specified version of the XS model. Same engine, same gearbox, same amount of power, but no front airdam and no bucket sport seats. And yeah, they were all white. This one isn’t.

Three-Wheel Tuesday: A Tuk-Tuk on a European Tour


Friend of Hooniverse, Joe, spotted this three-wheeled contraption on his holiday in Croatia. Originally an Italian development, Tuk-Tuks or auto rickshaws have popped up all around the warmer climates, where they work well as an uncomplicated means of transport. Perhaps you remember the one from Octopussy, popping a wheelie.

This blue, German-registered example made by Piaggio was touring the Adriatic Sea, and from Croatia it would have continued to Montenegro, then Albania and back via Italy. Quite a ride!

V.I.S.I.T.: Remembering Long Lost Friends


It seems like ever since we somewhat reluctantly switched over to Discus as our posting and commenting system, some longtime Hoons seem not to have made the jump with us. But regardless of the reason, we here in the Hooniverse remember all fondly. And of course, who could forget Muthalovin’?

V.I.S.I.T. – 1954 Ford Tudor


Despite the bumper sticker on the back of the Town Cow, I made a rare exception to my “no cell phone while driving” rule, thanks to the State of Kansas’s failure to include snapping cellphone pics in their distracted driving statute, and the fact that I was sitting at a stoplight with my foot on the brake. Furthermore, if the Sunflower State’s Finest did try to bust me, I was only about three feet from Missouri.*

Why did I feel compelled to compromise my safety-first attitude for this particular car? No, I don’t have a fetish for 1954 Fords, even though they’re cool cars. This car’s extra significance comes not from what it is, but rather from who’s behind the wheel. The ‘shopped license plate camouflage should provide the giveaway clue; this seafoam survivor belongs to none other than Hooniverse Hyper-Lounge Certified commenter Alff. I had just enjoyed a tasty Shrimp Po’Boy Combo in the company of both the Divine Mr. A and fellow Heartland Hoon Kiefmo.

Despite my efforts to obscure his plate, I am still going to blow his witness protection cover by showing you his dashing mug in an even more flagrant, underway-in-traffic side view of the car after the jump.
