So, this olelongrooffan has shared with my fellow Hoons that I spent the weekend out at the Daytona International Speedway a couple weeks ago hawking some carhaulers to the unwitting public there. I was able, however, to get out and about and see some cool old cars. This is not one of them.
Now it has to be fairly evident that I am a huge fan, as are many of us here, of longroofs. I like old ones, new ones, even 92 ones. But the sight of this longroof left me nearly speechless. Last year the original generation Taurus wagon was old enough to be determined a classic. You can bet that this Taurus will never receive that designation by this Hoon.
I seem to stumble upon a monstrosity or two at every car show I have attended in recent memory and this one qualifies for the title of this post.
I’m not really sure what the motivation is behind this build. It is too new to be a classic street rod. The work in progress seems to be of marginal quality and the end result will look just as horrifying as the work in progress is.
There has definitely been some sort of modification to nearly every component on this longroof and on some of them I cannot fathom the reasoning behind them. Yes, those are PVC pipes on that luan shelf above the steering wheel of this beast.
IMHO, the car from the front looks totally out of proportion. The scoops on the side? I mean WTF?
And the red tinted plexiglass hood scoop just takes the cake.
Overall, I still need the eye bleach some two weeks after spotting this thing.
The line forms to the right.
