And the winner is….
Our sweet wheels have carried us southward without a proper name, so the time has come to award a winner for the “car naming contest.” The award goes to Jeff and Juli Labhart (and baby Kiren too) for their given name of “Hoon-Mobile” which we have taken the liberty and shortened to “The Hoon”. For those who don’t speak NewZenglish Jeff and Juli have provided a definition below…
Hoon is a derogatory term used in Australia and New Zealand to refer to a person who engages in loutish, anti-social behaviour. In particular, it is used to refer to one who drives in a manner which is anti-social by the standards of contemporary society, that is, fast, noisily or dangerously. Hoon activities can include speeding, street racing, burnouts, doughnuts or screeching tyres. Those commonly identified as being involved in “hooning” or street racing are young, predominantly male drivers in the age range of 16 and 25 years.
Our congratulations goes out to the Labharts for their knowledge of “kiwi-isms”,sense of humor and just darn good naming ability. We will do our best to make sure our ride lives up to it’s name without getting ourselves locked up down here in NZ. Labharts, we will be sending your award along soon. Thanks to all who participated!
