Classic Captions – The 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale Edition

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising, dealer displays or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. Do you remember the days in which you didn’t have to own a Pickup Truck or SUV to enjoy the Great Outdoors? Neither can I, but apparently there was a time in which that happened, but we will get to that in a moment…
Last time we had an image of a Hoser with his Plymouth, and the participation rate was just a bit better, so I guess using vintage advertising isn’t really the problem, so let’s review last week’s entries. Our runner up comment was from relative newcomer neight428, and it was a take off of a Canadian Theme: “All you hosers go visit your local Ontario Plymouth Dealer to check out the latest models, eh?” That was a very good try, but there was one caption that you all liked a bit better…
And the winning comment was from one of our regulars, Irishzombieman☆, and it was one of those classic Photoshop Images that pop up every once in a while. You can enlarge the image by clicking here, and make sure you drink in all the detail. Congratulations Irishzombieman☆ on winning this weeks Classic Caption Contest.
It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and once again I dive into the Flickr Account of Alden Jewell. This ad is for the 1978 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale 2-Door Sedan with four guys on a Fishing Trip (Imagine that, without a big old SUV…) When you look at this image, what do you think is the story behind the guys Fishing Getaway? Where are they going to put their catch (admittedly, it is a rather small catch, but I’m just saying…) And where did they stay for the night in the first place? At least this was a proper Oldsmobile Image, because it was in fact your Fathers Oldsmobile… (You can see a larger image by clicking here)
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, and we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this very Spring Like image.
