Hopefully, this represents the spearhead of an invasion.

The front of the vehicle is only half the story in TEXAS. There, they decorate the front of their vehicles with a Pair of Longhorns and the back with PAIR of THESE.

Bill needs to get out more; longhorn hood ornaments are an old and honored expression of a Texan’s right to cheerful excess.

I Soooo want that car! What is that year, 67 or 68?

I remember when Texans would chop a brand new caddie and make it into a pickup truck! A fancy high end pickup but a pickup truck nonetheless. Looked awesome!

What’s to understand, Bill? Texas is the biggest state, not counting that worthless Alaskan tundra, and Texans have the pride knowing they are a people with an independent spirit.

Remember the Alamo!

And there’s no such thing as a “former” Texan.

Bet its car horn bellows like a bull 😉

Being a native Texan, I can tell you most Texans laugh, and shake their head disapprovingly, at a car like that. In reality, they are very rare and are created as a publicity stunt.

Hollywood likes to put something like this in movies to mock Texas. Where was this car again? Oh right, southern California.

Old banged up vintage pickup trucks with Texas plates? Now that I look upon fondly.

    The Gaylord Texan hotel in DFW has a car almost exactly like this. In fact I thought that was it until I read the city. A few weeks ago I saw a guy selling poofy plastic longhorns you can put on your car. Would I get one? No, but I don’t shake my head disapprovingly. Texas is a unique state and I know a lot of people embarrassed by that for some dumb reason. They want it to be like the other 49 boring ones.

Actually, those are functional. They show the driver the lethality side limits of his/her vehicle.

Do you not recognize a Dukes of Hazard tribute when you see one?

Isn’t that Boss Hogg’s car?

well do you understand me? I am from MASS. This is a picture of my car. The dogs found the deer skull one winter….that’s the extent of my hunting.

Believe me I get a lot of stares, laughter and confused looks up here in the suburbs west of Boston
