Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

So this olelongrooffan was out at the Daytona International Speedway for Bike Week today. The “Free Infield Access” sign above the NASCAR turn 4 tunnel captured my attention and I drove on through that old tunnel, the experience of which always draws a hearty chuckle from this olelongrooffan. Anyway, I was cruising on that road through the center of the infield and spotted my Indian’s twin with an open parking spot next to it. Of course that parking spot was begging to be snagged, and it was. And although that twin was powered by the newer the 2.5 2.8 litre V6 and it has a built in 12V power source, my Comanche possesses a 2.5 litre inline 4 and four wheel drive. Now if I can only get a CASCAR two tone paint job!

    MrHowser….I could be mistaken, a lot of stimuli, and a bunch of blogs, today for this olelongrooffan….I do distinctly remember it stated V-6 on the rear tailgate and it could have well read a 2.8. I was so overwhelmed at seeing another 5-speed bearing 7 foot bed Comanche that I may have misread the capacity of that engine. But I do know this, my 1986, first year Comanche does possess the 2.5 inline least that's what I am told by my parts friends down at Beachside Auto Parts and my Goodyear loving brother, thejeepjunkie. But know this, if, as you mentioned in the comment section of one of my posts, this olelongrooffan is ever in your neck of the woods for a test drive, your Comanche is going to the thrashed!! 🙂 Seriously, thanks for the interest and remember to stay Hoonworthy for the rest of us.

      Seems like a lot of s hoons are Comanche freaks, I looked at an 90 LB 4WD I6 auto Pioneer but it was rusted to hell and wasn't work 1500. I couldn't find one in decent condition in my parts so I ended up with an 88 Bronco with a 302 and an auto for 4x the price, but the premium price came with 72K original miles and in near perfect condition. I'd still like to add a Comanche to the current fleet of 1 someday though.

    Attention Southern Hoons – here's an opportunity to own a truly awful Alfa at a truly ridiculous price. If I lived near, you'd be able to hear my wife yelling at me through the internetz.

      I'm sad & glad that
      1. this is in the opposite corner of the US from me
      2. my driveway slopes very steeply uphill to my garage, reducing the chance of (yet another) non-running vehicle entering it. For now.

    You call them birds. I call them junk…

      We see you trolling,
      without detail, and no depth,
      nothing to ponder.

      It is better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

        This is precisely why I've learned to type without moving my lips.

        What you did there, I see it. Woah-ho-ho…

        Don't fool yourself, Samuel Langhorn Clemens you ain't.

          The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

    I can never resist the opportunity to park next to a similar car, no matter if it means I'm walking further to get to where I'm going, it's just something that needs to be done!

      Especially if you drive something that is not something that you see everyday.

        I always park as far away from everyone as long as it's not at bottom of a hill where you could get drilled by runaway shopping carts. It's an old habit I got from when I was long-haul trucking and sometimes the walk from the Truck to the truck-stop to go eat chicken fried steak and play pinball (truck-stops are about the only place you see pinball machines any more) is the only real exercise you'll get that day.
        I live in a very liberal and progressive mountain college town, so you can't swing a cat without hitting a Volvo XC/70 or 90. There's almost always one parked next to my 145 all the way at the end of the parking lot, twenty spots beyond the next closest car, when I come out of the store

      Yeah me too… I have come out of establishments to see four of my Jeep's kin parked along side. Kinda makes me giddy.

      When I drive the minivan to Wal Mart, I can hardly avoid it.

        You're lucky O.J. didn't catch you touching Al's Bronco.

        Sweet pic! Wish I had pictures of when I've done that.
        Oh, and I like the Bronco too! Good choice!
