Hi Ron -

“Hoon” is an Australian term. As I understand the term it refers to those
given to garish modifications to their vehicles, serving no practical
purpose, and also given to displays of crass and boorish highway behavior.
As such, Doug is our King, because of his penchant for the first rather
than the second of those attributes…

For a more accurate and complete definition, I refer you to our antipodean
