Mystery Car

Now, this olelongrooffan has, until this point in time, been a Mystery Car virgin so I thought I would jump in with both feet. I spotted this car at a show a couple years ago and it is an original image of mine.
Good luck over on google images. But I’ll bet my fellow Hoons can identify it nearly instantly.
Have fun and if I have violated protocol, I don’t even know Mystery Car protocol, and am in trouble with the Powers That Be, this may be the last time my fellow Hoons hear from this olelongrooffan!

        HOLY SHIT!!! But given your location, it should not be a surprise to this olelongrooffan!

        I never noticed before how the rear quarter of a Puma GT might have been an influence on the 280zx. In most ways, the ZX looks like a refined and slightly boring-fied 280z, but at least from the B-pillar back, I see more similarity to the Puma. Even the wheels in this case.

          Hey, don't dis the 280ZX. I find it attractive enough to make it onto my bucket list.

            I just bought one a few days ago, which is why I have Datsuns in mind. Mine is a nearly rust-free low-miles mechanically-sorted stock survivor. At the same time I've arranged the parts necessary to upgrade the whole suspension, steering, and brake systems before I put it on the road this spring. Maybe next year I'll look into a modern fuel injection system and some head and breathing improvements to get it fully up to snuff.

      God, if anyone deserved to pull the trigger on that one, it was you. Good show, old boy.

    Damn, that was fast. Hey, Powers That Be, cut the LongRoofian some slack if he has unknowingly trod upon some silly rule. I, for one, like his stuff. Anybody who drives a beater Jeep Comanche is fine by me.

      I would like to second this. The olelongrooffan has a nice unique style, and I enjoy reading it!
      One of the great things about this site is the variety of posting styles, please keep it up!

      Thanks! Conversely, there are some great trails down here in Tombstone to explore, perfect for a Comanche. You can spend all day long in 4 Low, and get to some real neat places. Plenty of beer, too (the company I work for owns a bar).

      Rules? Since when the Hooniverse have rules?

    Thanks for the fantastic comments…now, let's make this really interesting…Name the cars shown in the background of the quarterpanel shot of the yellow Puma GT…is the white one a Pontiac T1000?

        Brazil: where every car has a weird variant you can't see anywhere else…

            Type 4 lookin' but a Type 1 chassis.
            I never knew this one existed until I saw that this one was part of the 2011 HotWheels 1st editions.

            The HW one is a Brasilia.

            I know it looks exactly the same but the Brasilia is shorter than a Beetle by 2cm, but with the same wheelbase and a roomier interior. The Variant was 1,5cm longer than the Beetle, but with a 9cm increase in the wheelbase.

      The one with the split glass is a SImca Vedette. They made them all over. Here's a Ford Vedette without split glass from France. They even made these is Sweden, how I knew about them, I know I AM that predictable.

        Are you sure it's not a Kaiser? They did make them in Argentina, after all.

          The only Kaiser made in Argentina was the Carabela, which was based on the second-generation 1955 US car.

          I'm pretty sure it's a Vedette. Like if I was the phone a friend lifeline I would be pretty insistent. I swear I have seen ones with that chrome, two tone paint, and the split glass combo somewhere online. I know they made them in SA too. The thing is that if you google "Vedette" you get so many pages of these old fashioned undergarments being worn by young attractive models that I stopped looking pretty quickly for a better fitting image for my reply above. I did not want my wife thinking I was hooked on some kinky fetish. Vedette must be a brand or style of bra or something. And I shouldn't google that here at work either now 😉
