Last Call- Last Legs Edition

Some people advocate that you ‘drive it like you stole it.’ The owner of this glorious piece or performance art obviously lives by the mantra of ‘drive it like you stole it from Fred Flintstone.’
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, it’s encouraged.

    Maybe he just stole the front bit

    What strikes me about this brochure cover is that the company was operating out of Martha's Vineyard.

    Also, according to the page I found it on, it's from 1955, so someone was making fiberglass tops for jeeps in the '50s! Love the domed top.

        The first movie was filmed 3 counties over from where I grew up. When the Olds cruises up the hill to the cabin I get a little homesick.

    Anybody else hearing the stupid radio commercial for some aviation maintenance school that starts with some brother saying "I just rebuilt the engine in my 2008 Camaro…" I'm thinking this guy probably has a 1983 Corvette and a 1976 Shelby Mustang too.

      Gee, my 1991 GMC is nowhere near needing a rebuild. Is there something about 2008 Camaro motors that makes them need a rebuild in under 10 years? He should just replace it with 1991 305! They're grrreat!

        Might have something to do with the fact that GM didn't build a Camaro in 2008.

          Ah. I missed that.

    The epitome of a winter beater. Probably only driven on the shittiest days every year. Notice the late-'70s wider white wall radial snow tire. Nobody reproduces those…

    It's a '76 Olds Delta 88. It's funny, but I can remember when my cousin's '74 Delta 88 Royale was brand new. Since it was a '74, it had the seat belt/ignition interlock system, where the car wouldn't start until the front seat occupants buckled their seat belts. It didn't take long before he figured out how to disable it by unplugging a connector under the driver's side of the dash. The interlock system lasted on cars until early in the '75 model year, before it was dropped.

      Everyone I know just buckled the belts and then sat on top of them. Back in those days of vinyl seats, you couldn't tell the difference anyway.

    Feelgood image: Showing up in whatever crappy cars I have owned hasn't always raised my social status. It's encouraging to know there's something that's decidedly worse.

    Over at Annualmobiles, Jaybird has posted what might be the first known use of the word "Camero", from all the way back in 1967, BC (Before Craigslist):

      Are there other spellings?
