Classic Captions – The 1956 Simca Aronde Showcar Edition

Models pose in a cutaway Simca Aronde at the Paris Motor Show, 1956 [1194 x 1160] - Imgur

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. It’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, but this time I’m going to break from tradition. You see I received this image from an enthusiastic fan of this particular feature (Thanks Kyran for your submission) and after some research, I decided to use it for this weeks contest. It is still your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with this most unusual image from the 1956 Paris Auto Show…


Last time, we had an image of a Chrysler fit for a Sultan, and we had a pretty good turnout this time. The runner-up comment was from the queen on the internet herself, $kaycog (Didn’t I already use that line last week?). Her caption went like this: “It’s okay to lust after the new Chrysler New Yorker, but don’t get carried away.” This was very funny $kay, but there was one that was the favorite among the Hoons that gather around this particular part of the web…

This week, the winning caption came from one of our regular participants, OA5599, and his winning caption went this way: “This Chrysler New Yorker has the powerful new 440 under the hood. How powerful is it? Well, let’s just say it’s a lot faster than a sedan with four turban engines.” This was very well done, and it tied in the whole Chrysler thing as well, so congratulations OA5599 on winning the Caption Contest this week.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and it is a publicity print for the 1956 Simca Aronde, which was a cutaway version used for the 1956 Paris Auto Show. This is a particularly provocative image, which only the French could get away with during this particular time period. The model in the front seat seems relaxed and peaceful, with a beautiful gown that isn’t at all revealing. The model in the back seat however is positively sultry in a strapless gown. She looks like she is about to have an orgasm… I’m really not kidding! She is pushing all the right buttons with her pose… Remember, this is an image from the mid 50’s, and it has the smoldering sensuality you would never expect, all for a car that was mediocre at best… Is this Simca really all that? (You can click here to see the full size image)

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (Excuse me while I ponder this image again… I’ll be over here!), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this unusual image.
