Welcome to the Sunday Edition of Hooniverse Weekend, and with this being Super Bowl Weekend, I would expect that traffic will be lighter than usual after 2PM eastern. Yes, I know the game doesn’t start till around 6PM, but there is all the pre-game shows and whatnot, so I’m going to be running lighter than usual as well. Continuing on with our “Vintage Panel Truck” Weekend, I found this particular truck on eBay, and since we have a thing for our own Elanor, I though it was the right time to introduce you all to the Haulenore…
According to the dealer listing:

Price is undisclosed, but judging by the other cars and trucks this dealer has in inventory, I am willing to bet it will cause Cardiac Arrest. See the dealer listing here, and tell me what you think.
