Last Call: What about the Olympics?

We all know that the Coronavirus is postponing basically every event on Earth but what about the Olympics? The games have only been canceled because of WWI and WWII in the past so a cancelation because of an epidemic would be a first for the history books. In the post, you can see the hundreds of cars already repping the Tokyo 2020 designs which hopefully don’t go to waste. The delay is already going to hurt Japan’s economy since they spent so much money on it so having to redo basically everything just to change a number would be nuts!

I wouldn’t be opposed to it still being called the 2020 Olympics even if it takes place next year. If anything, the merch will become collectible. So save up all those hats and jerseys and you might make it on Pawn Stars in 50 years.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, but it’s also encouraged.

My name is Colby Buchanan and I love all things car-related all the way from rusted 240sx's to McLaren Senna's and of course I have a soft spot for American Muscle. You can spot me in my bone stock '06 350z named MackenZ.

  1. Twelve (12) MPG! Woo-Hoo!

    Whatever my mechanic did to get the Econoline to pass SMOG (still waiting on a new cat) has resulted in a whopping 50% increase in gas mileage, up from 8 mpg to 12 mpg. This repair’s gonna pay for itself!

    1. Whenever you mention your fuel consumption numbers, I read “Econoline” as “Ekranoplan”.

      1. For those who may be unfamiliar with the Ekranoplan – well, imagine if Stalin ordered the design of an Econoline Van for the entire Soviet Army. Yes, they actually built one. Yes, it probably got about 12-miles to an Imperialist gallon. But after you see the picture, you’ll totally want one – I know I do.

        As usual, Discus insists that I log in to post a picture – well I AM logged in but Discus refuses to believe me, so here’s a link:

  2. And in slightly later news the Games have been postponed and will still be called Tokyo 2020 to avoid the wastage of rebranding everything. Good call Colby

    1. And you can get your Royal Easter Show showbags online! They gotta sell them somewhere I guess. The kids won’t miss out on their Bluey showbags at least.

  3. Now Toyota has a legitimate reason to keep their cars exactly the same for one model year.
