Classic Captions – The (Second) 1967 Jeepster Edition

1966 Jeepster-02-03

Welcome to the Hooniverse Classic Captions Post. This is a series of posts that are set to run this time every Tuesday, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous, snarky, or thought provoking caption that is some how tied in with the image. It has finally warmed up enough on the East Coast to start thinking about Summer…


Last week, we had an image of a bunch of Scuba Enthusiasts on the beach, and the comments were interesting and thought provoking. Longtime fan, Alff (Yes, again…), threw out this incredible caption: “… and remember, stay out of my new car. I don’t need the interior covered in seamen.” Very funny, but no prize winner this time…


The winner this week was from smalleyxb122 (Yes, again!), who penned this caption to go along with the attached image: “Damned autocorrect. Driver’s car! A real Driver’s car!” This was very clever, so congratulations once again smalleyxb122!

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks illustration. This is an advertising image for the 1967 Jeepster, featuring a bevy of beautiful girls (and a dog, but I’m not sure if it’s a bitch or not…) It is a typical mid 60s beach image, so here is your assignment this time… What the hell are all these people saying to each other? I’m sure you can come up with something very amusing. (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 entries, and after watching re-runs of Gidget (Remember Sally Field?), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this Beach Blanket Bingo.

  1. I'll go for the Pedant Of The Day Award, and point out that it's Sally Field, not Fields.

      1. Thanks Jim. Still waiting for that thread about your recovery. Hope is everything is going well with you.

    1. That was a good one, Smalley. I couldn't help but read it in Jackie Stewart's voice while thinking of Ford Tempos.

  2. Hey what's with all the people in the DeSoto over there? Isn't that wild, a Chrysler product and a Jeep on the same beach. What next, a Fiat? Don't make me laugh.

  3. Little known fact: Jan and Dean started off as a man/dog duo. Despite some early local success, the duo didn't really take off until Jan's manager replaced Dean the 'Dane with a human.

  4. While Gidget, Moon Doggie and the gang discuss the tasty waves, Scoobie stares intently at a shaggy stoner and his enormous sammich off in the distance.

  5. Yes, this is exactly the spot where she wanted her ashes buried. Frankie, I know you're very proud of your longboard but wouldn't a shovel have been more practical?

  6. Flipper (known alias: Rover) made sure Capt. Johnny stayed distracted while he monitored the Navy submarine exercises, mentally logging every signal and maneuver to report back to his Soviet handler.

  7. Even though Bob never learned to surf, he brought a longboard to every get together, to go with his now-tired "stiff as a board" joke.

  8. When Duke won the state lottery he bought a Jeepster because he loved having fun on the beach, and so did the three girls he employed to see to his every need. There was only one thing missing from his life, and he planned to remedy that very soon. After the girls got rid of that surfer they could see about getting him a French-poodle maid…

  9. Despite Jim's insistence he had an 8 under the hood, the girls secretly wondered if it was only a 4 or a 6.

  10. Guy: Which one of you ladies wants to head to my place and 'hang 10' (wink)
    Blonde 1: He wishes he had 10
    Redhead: He's obviously compensating with that longboard
    Blonde 2: Whats a surfboard?
    Dog: That pickup line was RUFF

  11. Fortunately for Bowser, he was too busy watching the Frisbee those two kids were tossing to hear Linda, Erica, Patti and George planning to help inspect each other for sand in places into which they didn't know sand could get.

  12. Antoine planned to take his Charles Barrett Special back to the dealership for some calibration. It was attracting members of the opposite sex…and species!

  13. Bob: I have a great idea for the next Lindsey Lohan remake. You think Disney will still fund her fresh out of rehab?
    Steve: again?
    Bob: no huh? well what if we cast Kristen Stewart? She works well with dogs and dousche bags.

  14. "I was going to buy a CJ, but my log is so long and my skeg is so big, I had to go Commando!"

  15. "I don't know, it's a JEEPSTER, fer chrissakes..not a Jeep! Appeal to every damn demographic you can…beachgoers, surfers, dog-people, whatever!"

  16. Vigrx plus contains horny goat’s weed as an ingredient which
    improves blood flow to the genitals giving it longer and stronger erection. Hence, they
    practice the concept of “exhausting all options” and research
    these products. Drugs such as V-iag-ra can only help for
    a small while but fail to cure the problem all together.

  17. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any
    better! Looking through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I will send
    this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a very good
    read. Thanks for sharing!
