Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Monstrosities From The Hard Drive


Last week for British Week Truck Thursday this olelongrooffan posted about a Jagamino Jagchero (by popular opinion) and a
fellow Hoon said in the comment section: “I’m afraid to know what other monstrosities are in your hard drive.”
Well, my hard drive contains around 5,000 images of all things automotive so this may just become a semi-regular event. The vehicle I captured in the above image was at the Orlando Tuners Show awhile back but it is fairly tame in the monstrosity section.

As I mentioned, during the infamously popular British Week sponsored by the ever popular Blake Z. Rong from his high faluting penthouse flat over in London, this olelongrooffan did the post about that Jagchero.
Well my fellow Hoons, in keeping with the body style of that Jagchero, this olelongrooffan presents another, equally mislabeled, truck.

Yes, my fellow Hoons, the Hoons down here in the Birthplace of Speed come up with some bat shit crazy stuff that is for sure.

This LINK-O-MINO appears to be based on an early 90’s era Lincoln Town Cow. And those graphics just make the whole funkadelic scene don’t they?

I spotted this beauty sitting in a Krystal’s parking lot down on US 1 a while back and circled around to gather some images of it for my fellow Hoons. I mean, the caulk along around the rear window was worth the roundtrip.

This olelongrooffan got a chance to speak with the owner (are you surprised?) and it turns out he is the retired owner of a local plumbing company, BTW, their beater step vans are just a step away from kid loving ice cream trucks and I don’t mean that in a good way. Anyway, after he retired, he and a buddy decided to build one of these. They actually sold the prototype!! Figuring there was a market for a monstrosity fine motoring vehicle such as this, they built another.

My fellow Hoons, should you be interested in one, it can be had for $3,495.00 plus the donor Town Cow. Diamond plate tool boxes are standard. Clutter covered dashboard and matching whitewalls are optional, however.

    "my hard drive contains around 5,000 images of all things automotive so this may just become a semi-regular event." Because nothing is as sweet as shared pain. — I kid, this is going to be fun. I love seeing what people come up with either is will be scary Dali like creations or maybe something unthought if but cool.

    Hey, I like the Linkchero. Aside from the boogery caulk around the rear window, it looks like it was done competently. What it really needs, though, is the 4×4 drive train from an F150, then you'd really have an impressive mongrel.

      Hmmm, perhaps not so competently. Did you take a close look at the welds on the square tubing that form the tailgate? I coulda done better with a Hershey Bar and a brick. 😛

    If you supply your own caulk, that oughta knock the price down by at least $750.

    I don't save them like I used to, but at one time I saved all kinds of car pictures off of the 'net, going back to the Telnet/FTP days (before there was a World Wide Web).
    Here's one of those, of a 1930 Hudson (it's still floating around out there):

      Before my computer days, that is for sure. I didn't really get into them until the late 80's.
      Most of the images I have are original to me although I do have a bunch from coolisacolor and brookwood events. I hope this is as fun as I want it to be.
      Nice dual cowl Hudson Phaeton, is it? I have not previously seen this. Sweet.

    Gotta make me a Linchero, with some nice leather seats, put some horns on the hood and move to Tex-i-ass.

    Looks like a home-made attempt at a flower car. Perfect for the funeral of a construction foreman.

      I would LOVE a flower car as a work truck, Sadly they're expensive and hard to find

    After seeing that caulking, I'm betting his retirement from plumbing was not altogether voluntary.

    Liking the 13" calipers on that Altima.

      Look more like 15"-ish rotors with INVISICALIPERS!

        Oh. My. God.
        Of war.
        It's got quadruple discs, four of which are inboard. The outboard ones do not have calipers. To save weight.
        Racecar, yo!

    Lincochero. Sounds like a Mexican/Japanese parlor game.

    A. The wheels are awesome. No, scratch that, they are perfect.
    B. "Hmm, this just doesn't look weird enough yet. Let's paint on a bunch of purple boomerangs!" Wait, what?

      It's like Dazzle camouflage, trying to get your eyes to just move along, nothing to see here, this is normal.

    In my mind the Link-O-Mino will remain a fictional matte black El Camino with blood red detailing that inexplicably causes bystanders to hear the ghost of Link Wray playing "Rumble" from the beyond.
    I will accept no substitutes.
