Topic: Easy theme idea: 70s cop show honkout!

Lemons HQ has become obsessed with videos that involve dudes collapsing into the steering wheel and making the horn go "HONNNNNNNNNNNK!" There must be some way to do a honkout theme for a Lemons car, at least while the car rolls into the inspections. You want to get into the wrapup video? Do a proper Honkout theme!

A proper Honkout theme involves more than just your driver's face on the horn button, of course.

Re: Easy theme idea: 70s cop show honkout!

Also, Nick is always looking for more honkout videos online. Post links here!

Re: Easy theme idea: 70s cop show honkout!

If we just roll through the inspection tent without stopping, the driver collapsed onto the horn, do we automatically pass?  Or do we have to crash into something to stop the car in the tent for this to work?

Re: Easy theme idea: 70s cop show honkout!

The better question is, how does someone become obsessed with this?  I can understand pterodactyl porn, but...

I think there might be something wrong at Lemons HQ.

If only we did race a 1979 Ford with the blinker stalk mounted horn button!

Of course, if we didn't have that feature we would be in the same boat as most teams: No horn because we swapped out a cheap Grant steering wheel. Now I can do my victory lap with the horn honking, 1 wiper wiping, and turn signals on the whole time.

How about hubcaps that fly off at every corner?  Years ago I played a video game where you were driving the getaway car and due to a glitch, you had an endless supply of hubcaps.

Btw, don't bother testing rule 34.  I need some eye bleach.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Just envision bad 70s B-grade pr0n with costumes and pterodactyl muppets.

It's what happens when you agree to a "share the best things you've found on the interweb" game.
