I promptly voted for it.
LOL, well I've called it the Hooptie before... That made me laugh when I saw it too. If this trend continues next week it'll be The Big White Hooptie, and I can call it BW for short...

my wife used to drive an old caprice (it was white) and that is what we called that. me and her X-boyfriend. you could hear her coming. not because of problems but because it was a V8. I think it was mid 80's

The old mid 80's Caprices were great. When I started running rescue my squad had a retired Sheriff's dept car as a chase car. It was a 1986 Caprice with the police package. Man that was a fun car to drive... I think the ultimate was the 1990 Caprice with police persuit... Came with the 9C1 engine and fuel injection.

so is it the "HOOPTIE" yet or do we need to wait a while longer.

this also pushes it more recent.

I did set the poll to close after 10 days... technically there's still a week... I guess I should have had the poll close sooner.

At this point I think Hooptie will be it, it seems to be a clear favorite. I'll give it another day... Let's give it until 9pm Eastern on Thursday.

there used to be this restaraunt called Quncy's that has a theme song for "the big fat yeast roll". If you remember it you can substitute in the words "the big white hooptie" in it's place.

I truely have too much time on my hands.

Well, I think everyone who wanted to vote has already voted. I'm considering this closed...

The winner is....

The Big White Hooptie!
