The Same Only Different, A Redux

At the risk of usurping the awkwardness awesomeness the W_a_g_on SS featured in tanshanomi’s post earlier today possesses, I thought I would share with my fellow Hoons a couple SS wannabe longroofs I spotted last summer.

And unlike my post about the Studey longroof and the Corvairs this olelongrooffan did back in September, I am pretty sure this one will beat “Last Call”.
With reference to this pair of longroofs, the number of the images is woefully short and detail is nearly nonexistent. This olelongrooffan can only offer my apologies to my fellow Hoons for this oversight.
But I will say this about that. Both of these longroofs were in super shape and the fact they were among only 200 vehicles invited to this exclusive show demonstrates their quality and, IMHO, coolness.

I captured these images at a car show I stumbled upon after teaching a Construction Continuing Ed. course down south last summer. While traveling home on A1A I spotted an old street rod ragtop and decided to keep an eye out for a car show and, as often seems to be the case, this olelongrooffan found a really good one.

As such, I was rather flabbergasted at the quality of the vehicles invited to it and gathered just a few not enough images of each of the entries.

My favorite one of the pair is this black one. I guess the traditional black, although maroon was also offered, of the 90’s era Impala SS sways my opinion.

The other one I spotted was this silver/grey questionably badged longroof.

Now this olelongrooffan realizes the significance of branding something that is not a late 60’s Camaro a “Yenko”

but I hope my fellow Hoons can read the placard placed in the front window outlining the modifications done to this olelongroof.
I had purposely not included these images as I was going to do a separate post on my own blog, and like the old man I am, I forgot about them.
Much like Mr. Brennan does, tanshanomi triggered my memory of them and I hope my fellow Hoons can appreciate these two longroofs as this olelongrooffan did last summer and, well, today.

    That black one is beautiful, and I would warmly welcome that to my driveway any time. This olelongrooffan would actually prefer that over a real Impala — if it has all the Impala's go-fast goodies in it!

      I concur. In this claustrophobic little country it would certainly have the "WTF?!!" factor I crave so badly.

    Also: "W_a_g_on SS" has me giggling uncontrollably. I'm not sure why, but I find that hysterically funny.

      The giant blank space made it appear to me as "Ass Wagon", so you may be on to something…

        Yeah, the license plate with the headline made me think of this one:
        <img src=""&gt;
        in addition to the license on Tarantino's truck.

      Well said, sir. Well said.

    Despite the fact that almost every Chevy I have worked on has either tried to tear one of my limbs off or set me on fire I still want a longroofed Impala SS clone as a daily driver.

    I think he's Yenko-ing our chain.

    A couple of days back I commented how the new CTS-V wagon was not wagony enough. These are beautiful and they get the sport and utilitarian hauling wagoning goodness right.
