Classic Captions – The 1993 Jeep Wrangler Convertible Edition

14340227036_d7db59bda1_h

Welcome to the Redusernab Classic Captions Post, and once again, 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 I have decided to raid Alden Jewell’s Flickr Photostream again, with this very interesting couple behind a Jeep Wrangler, but we will get to that image in a few…

Last time, we had an image of a Corvair Convertible with a couple pondering where to go, and it was the second time I used an image this large, which unfortunately enhanced some of the detail that was best left alone, and it didn’t escape your attention either. Most of the entries ignored that particular detail, and were somehow still funny. The runner-up comment was from , who tied in the Corvair theme nicely: “Careful Bill, she’s unsafe at any speed..” Very funny PotbellyJoe ❤❤❤❤♡, but there was one comment that was the overwhelming favorite this time.

And the winning comment came from , with a picture of (Yes, once again) and with a caption that could have been straight from that classic comedy bit: “My ’66 Corvair, and my assistant Tina… zzziiiiipppp. Name two things with powerful rear ends.” Ah yes,, that old Carson bit never gets old, does it? This was excellent so well done Irishzombieman☆ on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and yes I have raided (since he has a fresh batch, so why the hell not?). This is an image for the 1993 Jeep Wrangler Convertible, with a very heppy young couple behind the Jeep. The original ad exclaimed “Real Juice, Without the Squeeze”. So, what the hell is that suppose to mean? The Ad-Men at Chrysler was trying to tell you that the Wrangler was all of that for under $11,000. What they didn’t tell you was the fact that a top was not part of the package, nor was those snazzy Alloy Wheels, nor were those White Lettered Tires… What is very unusual in my mind is what she is wearing… I don’t think I have ever witnessed a female in Cowboy Boots trimmed in Sterling Silver toe and heel ornaments!

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 (You know, I could sport a pair of boots like that…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Redusernab Weekend Quick Hit – Serious Maverick is a Bondo Nightmare, but is it still Desirable?

1970 ford maverick RARE - Google Chrome 672014 104136 PM.bmp

You know that I love old 1970’s iron, and the Ford Maverick is one of my favorite cars, but let’s call a spade a spade… I don’t love this car at all. So, why isn’t this car calling my name? Bondo… and the seller makes no bones about it. Apparently there is some Bondo and some rust in the rear sections of the wheel wells… That’s all I need to hear, but maybe you are more forgiving. If you are, read on…

Continuing on with the Sunday Edition of the Redusernab Weekend and let me introduce you to what is probably the slowest car General Motors has produced since the ill fated Oldsmobile Diesel found under the hood of a 1979 Cutlass Supreme. Why do I know this? Because I have experienced a Cutlass Ciera with the 2.5: Tech 4 equipped with an Automatic and Air Conditioning… Talk about sloooooooooooowww…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1989 Toyota Sprinter Carib 4WD Wagon Currently for Sale…

Toyota 4WD Sprinter Carib Wagon- Touring Special (Corolla) - Google Chrome 672014 123740 PM.bmp

I spotted this little number from and it is a curious little beast. I knew these were imported in the later half of the 80’s, and were called the Toyota Corolla All-trac, taking over for the recently discontinued Toyota Tercel All-Trac Wagon, and it maintained most of the bizarre looks of that vehicle, but sold in considerably smaller numbers. Well, here is a Japanese Home Market version that you could call your own… Or Could You?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – How about this 1974 Vega Wagon with only 32,000 Original Miles!

Fullscreen capture 672014 105835 AM.bmp

The Chevrolet Vega, a car that held so much promise, and was so badly assembled, that it became more or less a joke among auto journalists, enthusiasts, and to the general public. Here was a small, good looking, domestically produced vehicle, that promised economical operation, better road manners than almost any other car, and was equipped with many features unheard of in a compact vehicle. But what a pile of crap it turned out to be… from warped engine blocks, to a myriad of rust and corrosion issues, these cars barely lasted until the payments were up. Which makes this particular Wagon rather interesting…

Welcome to another edition of the Redusernab Weekend, and I thought I would start out with this rather rare 1969 Pontiac Custom S Hardtop Coupe. I know what you are thinking… But Jim, that’s just a damn Pontiac LeMans or Tempest… How rare could it be? You would be surprised…

Redusernab Obscure Muscle Car Garage – The 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti

1963-studebaker-avanti.jpg (750×468) - Google Chrome 5162014 92658 PM.bmp

Welcome to another installment of the Redusernab Obscure Muscle Car Garage, a regular feature which aims to redefine the definition of what a muscle car is, and to expand your mind while doing so. Avanti is an Italian word for forward, and was probably the perfect name for the newest Studebaker coupe that was introduced in the fall of 1962. The car had many design firsts that later became inspirational factors in future cars during the next two decades. Key features include a long hood and short deck, popularized by the Ford Mustang, a grill-less front end which was popularized a decade later with other performance oriented cars, a glass fastback rear that was picked up for the Plymouth Barracuda and other vehicles, as well as other styling touches too numerous to mention here. Let’s just say that when the Avanti was introduced, it looked like nothing else on the market. But is it a muscle car and does it deserve a place in the Garage?

Classic Captions – The 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Convertible Edition

Tanshomi Images-001

Welcome to the Redusernab Classic Captions Post, and once again, 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. I have to thank the readers who have responded over the past couple of weeks, so I guess I’ll continue this feature with interesting images that I find all over, like this one from 1966, but we will get to that in a moment…

advertising images2-004

Last time, we had an image of a Hertz Rent-A-Car next to a Boeing 727, and it was the first time I used an image this large, so it looks like more pictures in this size format will become a part of this series in the future. All of the entries were great, and some were extremely funny. The runner-up comment was from (yes, again!), who was thinking what we secretly were all thinking: “Don’t land on the shifter. Don’t land on the shifter. Don’t land on the shifter.” Very funny smalleyxb122, but there was one comment that received a little more love from the readers this time.

And the winning comment was from , and it tied in one of the most notorious stunts ever executed from a plane (A 727 no less…): “D. B. Cooper’s first attempt needed quite a bit of refinement.” This was excellent (taking aim squarely at your screen name), so well done GTXcellent on winning the classic caption contest this time.

It’s now time to take a look at this weeks entry, and this was an image that was emailed to me a long time ago from fan of the Redusernab, Tanshanomi. So, I had to do a bit of research to find where he may have taken it from, and decided to make the width much larger to really bring out the detail… Only one detail was rather alarming, and I hope you guys (It will only be the guys, by the way…) don’t really make an issue of it… so here goes. The image itself raises a lot of questions, like what is the relationship between the (Much) Older Man and the Young, Vibrant Woman? One of the magazines or circulars on the engine cover is titled Guadalajara, while the magazine the girl is holding has models in swimwear. The man, looking a little exasperated, is holding a map or airline tickets. So where do you think they’re off to, and what is their relationship status anyway? So many questions, so little time, so lets keep it civil and see who comes out on top.

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’m not going anywhere near what I am currently thinking…), we will pronounce a winner. So, get to work and create you’re own caption for this rather unusual image.

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – Two 70’s Era Buicks that are both Lustworthy, For Different Reasons!

Recently Updated72

Closing out the weekeend, I thought I would highlight two very different 70’s era Buicks, that are both Lustworthy (at least in my mind they are) for two totally different reasons. One is a 1972 Buick Electra 225 Limited two-door hardtop, finished in (of course) Brown with a Brown vinyl top. This is a body style you will never see again… The other Buick is a 1973 Buick Estate Wagon, you know, the one with the clam shell tailgate, faux wood paneling, and it also has a vinyl roof!!! So, wouldn’t you really rather have a Buick?
