Hooniverse Classic Captions – The 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Edition

It must be another Monday because it’s time for another Classic Caption Contest here at Hooniverse. To review, I search for images that were used by the car companies in their advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a well thought out (or not) humorous caption that is tied in with the image. This week you are all playing for another Hartford Freightliner Cap that I received some time ago ago. So this would be a great time for you all to participate in our little game.

Last weeks image was of a handsome German Couple and their daughter and most comments were very funny and well thought out. An example of this is from our good friend Feds_II, who submitted this winning caption: “”Why am I smiling? Most men buy a large car to compensate for what they lack. My husband drives an Isetta” “MOM!””

Congratulations Feds_II. E-mail me on where to send your prize.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks illustration. It is a Advertising image for the 1959 Chevrolet Corvette featuring a lovely young lady behind the wheel of the ‘Vette talking with the captain of the local collage scull racing team. So, what do you think these two are talking about while the rest of the team seems to be showing off their back ends? Did you know that this is a Fuel Injected Corvette? What does any of this have to do with selling a sports car in 1959? Only you can answer these and any other question. (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 the merits of each entry, with the best one awarded this weeks prize. So show us what you got.
