Driver on Driver: Episode 7 – The Season Finale

It’s time to wrap up season one of Driver On Driver. In this season-ending episode we look back at the folks Sam’s sat down with, learn about the relationships he’s cultivated, and… well really we just talk to all the people he’s pissed off*. *But even that’s not really real… …

Thoughts On The Cars Of SEMA

Context is everything. As any artist, architect or museum curator will tell you, the surrounding environment colors our perception of things. A screaming, fuzzed-out guitar solo that sounds so great in concert would be annoying and intrusive in an oyster bar. A woman’s outfit that is considered risqué at a …

texting sign

Look, I appreciate the street signs warning of ‘Slow Children’ after all, its the fast kids that are the real challenge. However, warning drivers of texting pedestrians is going a little too far. After all, isn’t inattentiveness a genetic trait? What better way to improve the gene pool! Just kidding, don’t hit anybody with your car, even if they appear to be dumb.

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

Catch Blipshift’s Black Flag Friday Sale

Greg Kachadurian November 24, 2015 All Things Hoon

holiday gift pack no text

Our friends at Blipshift are celebrating the holidays properly with their last big blowout of the year. The awesome people behind the driver-friendly clothing and the banner ad ^up there ^ are having a Black Friday sale this week, and unlike the other ones, you won’t need to pack a taser and ignore your family to get in on the action.

For starters, they’re bringing back twenty restomodded designs of past favorites that haven’t been available in the last 6-24 months. All twenty shirts will be available at the same time (it’s usually just one shirt at a time) in sizes for him, her, and kids. In addition to the shirts, they’ve also got a new-for-the-season Blipshift shifter ornament to give your tree twenty horsepower plus new designs for stickers, headgear, posters, coasters, and more that will soon be announced on their site. Also new for this year’s sale are two seasonal bundles: The Holiday Party Survival Kit and Track Pack Gift Set.

Only Blipshift can sell you a sweater tee that’s meant to be ugly but still be awesome. That’s included in the Holiday Party Survival Kit (pictured) along with custom Klean Kanteen stainless steel pint cup for spiked eggnog, a set of coasters, shifter ornament, and a pair of stickers. In anticipation for racing season’s return, the Track Pack Gift Set scores you a drawstring sports sack, a carving instructions-printed Klean Kanteen stainless steel water bottle (carving racing lines, not turkey), a Stormtech poncho, a $15 Blipshift gift card to use on whatever, and two pairs of corded Laser Lite earplugs for when someone’s LeMons car develops an exhaust leak.

The Blipshift Black Flag Friday Sale starts on Thursday, November 26 at 10:00 PM EST and goes till Monday, November 30 at 11:59 PM EST, so also unlike other Black Friday sales, you have more time to take advantage of it. The list of restomodded shirts and details on special order bonuses will be available on Blipshift’s website closer to the start of the sale. No queuing required. Or fighting.

Exotic Expense: What Does it Cost to Drive a Used Gallardo?

Robert Emslie November 24, 2015 Hoonivercinema

Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 7.38.36 PM

YouTuber Vehicle Virgins is both 21 years old and the owner of a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo. Before you envision pissing in his OJ for those two seemingly incompatible facts have a look at his explanation of what that ownership actually costs. Spoiler alert, it’s really, really, really expensive. It is in fact a rather mature look at something most of us can only dream about as a route to the poorhouse. Be thankful you drive a cheap shitbox right after the jump. … Continue Reading

For the second installment of our new series, this Dipshit takes you on a tour of Sebring International Raceway. Well, you get to see inside the car but not much of the track. The car, by the way, is a Lamborghini Huracan, which I had just road-tripped through from Miami through a hellacious downpour.

So you could say my mind wasn’t in the right place… and after this, you’d have concrete proof. Regardless, sit back and enjoy this Dipshit’s Lap Of Sebring.

Hooniverse Asks: What Car Song Has The Least Car Savvy Lyrics?

Robert Emslie November 24, 2015 Hooniverse Asks


The Beach Boys released the single, Little Deuce Coupe in the fall of 1963. That ode to a hot rod stayed on the charts for an amazing 46 weeks and to this day remains one of the most accurate descriptions of a car, in song, ever recorded.

That of course makes it the antithesis of what we’re looking for today. Brian Wilson may have had a remarkable ear and an amazing affinity for accuracy in his car songs, but few other have been so exacting. That’s what we what to discuss today, your opinion on what are the least savvy car song lyrics – those from song writers who most obviously take the bus.

Outsider’s Perspective: Back to the Missed Opportunities


Well, a month has passed and I think that finally the terrible taste of what was rather uncreative in naming “Back to the Future Day” around the Internet has finally weaned off enough so that we can see it on an objective manner. And in an objective manner I can say: Screw You Toyota.
