The first usage usually applies to youths in cars. To the second, delete 'foolish or silly' replace 'show off' with 'over exuberant- will grow up one day' and imagine a tolerant smile.

Meerkat, I've had to rely on this page to understand our upsidedown friends-mind you, usually they take pains to avoid confusion-but wait until there is an all Austrailial/NZ topic!!
hoon - 1. a hoodlum; rowdy, tough, rough, unsavoury youth; member of a street gang; hooligan; 2. foolish show-off; 3. one who lives off the earnings of prostitutes
Here in Maine, this word is usually mistaken for a waterfowl with a weird laughing call....

Well, I am with Shane. I have several Hoons in my gaggle of kids. But I am proud of every one of them thar 'hoons'! smile.gif
(ah excepting one of them, she would be "unsavoury youth; member of a street gang")
Anyway, the others are quite awesome!! smile.gif
Hang in there Shane!!! :D
