Classic Captions – The 1963 Panhard 24 Coupe Edition

Jim Brennan September 30, 2014 Redusernab Classic Captions Contest 51 Comments


Welcome to the Redusernab Classic Captions Post, and it’s that time of the week in which this feature appears, so let’s review the premise; I search for images that were used by the car companies in their print advertising or brochures, and it is your job to provide a humorous caption that is some how tied in with the image. This week we take a look at something French, but we’ll get to that in a moment…

Classic Captions – The E10 Toyota Corolla Sprinter Edition  Redusernab - Google Chrome 9292014 81552 PM.bmp

Last time, we had an image of a Band with a Toyota, and the participation rate was still a little off, and it makes me wonder if this feature has run its course (Let me know in the comments section), but let’s carry on anyway. Our runner up comment was from long time Hoon mdharrell, and the caption was pretty funny: “Maybe we should drive farther uphill. The guy who sold me this 2000GT said all the cool bands are really high on grass.” I think this is a first time that Professor Harrell has placed this high in our little competition, so well done. However, there was one caption that was just a bit better, and it was a Photoshop…

And the winning comment was from another longtime Hoon, HycoSpeed, and his caption was actually a photoshop that you can see on the left… This was very well done, so congratulations HycoSpeed on winning this edition of the Redusernab Classic Captions Contest…

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and I have once again trolled for images at Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream Account, and this was a very interesting image. This is a 1963 Panhard 24 Coupe, with a very 60’s vibe. The female model looks very modern in a form fitting dress, evening gloves, simple pumps, and a very Jackie O hairstyle. Her Beau in the car is also very 60’s modern, but what is the car doing in a pond of some sort? I really don’t see a way for the lovely young couple to drive it out of its current location, and in all reality, why is the car there in the first place? I really like how timeless this image is, but is this really a way to sell an Obscure French Car in the 60’s?

You have the next five days to come up with a great caption. The editors will deliberate on the merits of each entry, and after contemplating our own caption (I bet that dress is still timeless today…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this very modern French image.

      Gonna jack your prize post to address this comment from Jim so it's at the top…

      "it makes me wonder if this feature has run its course (Let me know in the comments section)"

      Absolutely not! This is one of a number of regular features I look forward to every week here on the 'Verse! As a shining oasis in the over saturated automotive blog world, the commentators here at Redusernab are some of the most clever, friendly, and entertaining. This feature is consistently an opportunity for us to flex our creative brain muscles, and a continual source of hilarity. I know I don't always contribute, because sometimes I'm just not feeling creative or funny, but without fail, this feature brings out some of the best laughs I have all week. Please keep it up!

        Dear Jim,

        I agree with Flick…………..for a change.

        Joking, Flick, you know I ♥ you.

        • Scandinavian Flick ★

          That's okay. I didn't actually mean any of it anyway. I'm just in it for the up-thumbs.


          Also joking, of course! Much ♥ here too!

      • Devin

        I agree, it's still a great feature and I look forward to it every time. I didn't participate last week because it was a really weird week in general, and on Tuesday in particular, but the feature is still great.

      • Irishzombieman☆

        Yep. What he said. For a couple of reasons.
        #1-It makes me laugh. Every week.
        #2-It gives me a relief valve for the black humor that builds up inside my head. Classic Captions is my therapy.

        I look forward to Tuesdays–not just on here in the 'Verse but Tuesdays in general–because of this. Which might seem silly but it's true.

        Damn it, Jim! There is something to be said for taking a break every now and then, but if you stop, someone here will start it up somewhere.

        • Irishzombieman☆

          Dunno why this ended up below also. Glitch in the matrix.

    • That is a dirty little Toyota, isn't it. Glad to see someone it's taking the time to wash it off…

    After making his mutinous first mate walk the plank, Bob began to question the wisdom of going down with the ship.

    Long before Keith Moon began parking Rolls Royce cars in swimming pools there was Jean-Paul Belmondo and his Panhard. This time, however, Catherine was prepared.

    Mr. Foley had been missing for days. The search team was having no luck until Greg decided to drive his car through the forest and its lush April foliage.

    After all, what better way to locate Axel under the spring leaves than with a Panhard?

    • Kelly

      This is much better than it will get credit for…

      • jeepjeff

        Looks like it's doing pretty well so far. I still wish I could give it a thumbs up for every one of those rods that I own.

    Somehow, on his way to Lily's apartment, Pierre mistakenly ended up here instead of at Lily's pad.

        You get a +1 for any Weird Al reference.

  • Sjalabais

    Finally a stance that allows you to stay in your wife's arms while in the driveway.

    [Awesome image btw!]

  • Hmm, do you really think I would seem funnier if I had a bigger chin?

  • Darling, exactly how hard IS a pan?

  • skitter

    Well in this country, the coathook goes on the inside of the car, and this is not an acceptable way to pick up women.

  • GTXcellent

    Panhard? Darling, I hardly know you!

  • MVEilenstein

    "But cherie, why am I in a pond?"

    "Because you're a frog."

  • You know, an electric bicycle would go faster on this frozen lake.

  • topdeadcentre

    Out-of-Photo Redusernab Peasant: Listen. Strange women standing in ponds distributing obscure French cars is no basis for a system of Classic Captions. Supreme automotive cleverness derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!

    Driver: Be quiet!

    Redusernab Peasant: You can't expect to wield supreme style and panache just 'cause some watery tart threw a 1960's Panhard at you!

    Driver: [grabs Peasant] Shut up! Will you shut up?!

    Redusernab peasant: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!

    Driver: [shakes Peasant] Shut up!

    Redusernab Peasant: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!

      What is the road speed velocity of an unladen Panhard?

      • MVEilenstein

        With an 850cc engine, syrup.

        • jeepjeff

          Don't underestimate syrup. Once it gets up to speed, it's no joke: …

      • topdeadcentre

        At wide open throttle? Potato.

    • FЯeeMan

      The masses may not mandate that this is the winning entry, so, I'm off to find a shrubbery.

    • Fuhrman16

      I don't get it.

      • topdeadcentre

        It's a parody of a scene from the movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", which itself is a parody of the King Arthur legends.

        Original scene can be found here:

  • FЯeeMan

    In a modern take on the Biblical tale, Jesus drove a Panhard across Lake Gennesaret, and this time it was Mary who came to meet him instead of Peter.

  • ramLlama

    Going off of the full brochure page linked…

    Always the consummate saleswoman, Betty smiled warmly while Richard decided to test the Panhard's floatation ability.

  • Joe Btfsplk

    "Sorry Sweetie, but your weenie is as tiny as your Panhard!"

  • paulz67

    Hi, I'm Panhard Rod… Wanna' help me test my suspension?

  • Cure_Quanta

    "Your hydroplaning trick was really neat, CARL, but how are you gonna get OFF Mrs. Feenie's pond?"
    "…I'm thinkin'…"

  • MVEilenstein

    The Panhard Bar? It's OK – kind of a DIVE, if you know what I mean.

  • No wonder John Kerry got mad when they called that a 'Swift Boat'!
