Hooniverse Classic Caption – The 1973 Ford LTD Edition

It’s Monday, so it must be time for the Hooniverse Classic Caption Contest. Hooniverse is fast becoming one of the most engaging Automotive sites on the web, and we have the fans to prove it, and the Classic Captions category is the perfect example of how engaging our fans are. Let’s review how this game is played; I have gathered images from around the web, presented them in a posting like this, and the cmmentariant write pithy, snarky, and often humorous captions to these images. I have been awarding prizes, and this week, it’s a new Allison Transmissions Baseball Cap, and one will go out to you if you are deemed the winner. Last week, we had an image of two videographers, and the number of participants for this edition of the contest was a little off. Anyway, the winner this week was Skitter, and he left us with this great caption:

“Dodge is a proud to announce that their stylish and desirable 600 model will be featured in The Association, the exciting new series about a couple who will stop at nothing to catch someone painting their house an inappropriate color.”

Congratulations Skitter, and remember to e-mail with information on where to send your prize. It’s now time to take a look at this weeks illustration. It is an advertising image from the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company using a 1973 Ford LTD Sedan in a rather unusual setting. So, where do you think this family was visiting in their luxurious LTD, and why are there so many lions around the car? If you take a look at the picture, the lions seem to be distracted, and not at all interested in the boxed lunch on four wheels, so what do you think got their attention? Is this really a proper image setting for a Tire Company Advertisement? (You can click on the image to see it full sized) You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will then go on Safari to see if Lions actually puncture tires in order to get their prey. On the other hand, maybe we’ll just watch re-runs of Daktari, and award the prize to the snarkiest comment. On another note, my e-mail decided to dump its contents, so I once again need Maymar to e-mail me as soon as possible. Anyone else who hasn’t received their prized, let me know.
