Banger Racing on the Isle of Man

The Isle of Man is a place that everyone should visit at least once. You have to go during the TT, and you have to take in all of the insanity surrounding the event. The people on the island don’t just love pushing around fast bikes though, as we discovered. …

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 66 – Up In The Hooniverse Hills

Jason’s back from his birthday hiatus (and his stint on the hoonicast and TST), and he’s joined as usual by Cam and Tub. Cam’s still recording with his cellular telephone, hopefully for the last time. We really had fun with this hour, and we hope you enjoy it. This episode’s …

I’m back in the studio after an unexpected absence last week. Joining me is Producer Chris Hayes as we kick it a bit old school and run down some new car news before diving into what we’ve been driving and what’s going on with our own cars. What’s the new car news? Well, a …

24 Hours of LeMons: ‘Doing Time in Joliet 24 Hours’ liveblog

It’s a typically muggy Saturday in the Midwest and Hooniverse is live from Autobahn Country Club this weekend for the 24 Hours of LeMons’ race. While last year’s summer race at Autobahn was 14 straight hours (unlike the usual 14-1/2 hours over two days), this year’s is the series’ first …

OK, enough alliteration already. Let’s check out this beast. … Continue Reading

Outsider’s Perspective: It rolls downhill

honda-accord-1_678x352_71437982353 (Copy)

The Honda Accord, alongside the Mercedes-Benz E350 and the Toyota Avalon, is one of the most sensible 4-door sedans that you can buy today. And it has just gotten a lot better, with a mid-life upgrade that promises to improve what is already a very nice car.

Unfortunately these improvements come with a heavy price to those with the gift of eyesight.

The Carchive (In Video!): The 1986 R31 Nissan Skyline

IMAG1886

Welcome once more to that time of the week where we blow the dust off yesterdays memories only to hurriedly find some way of forgetting them again as quickly as possible. Today we’re trying something a little different.

The Carchive contains a great many worthless priceless documents which, sadly, don’t translate too well into the format we have developed over the years, either because of sheer length (too many pages to photograph and then yammer on about in type, TL;DR) or because of language. The latter point is the case with the wealth of JDM brochures lurking in The Carchive.

So, I figured, if we can’t decipher the words, maybe we can look enjoy the pictures together? Carchive Video is very definitely still in Beta, but lets see if live action brings the pages to life a bit. Welcome to The Carchive, version 2.0.

Banger Racing on the Isle of Man

YouTube Preview Image

The Isle of Man is a place that everyone should visit at least once. You have to go during the TT, and you have to take in all of the insanity surrounding the event. The people on the island don’t just love pushing around fast bikes though, as we discovered.

There is a small oval circuit on the Isle of Man, and it packs a substantial local crowd. The folks gather to watch their friends or family, and the racing action is excellent. We’re talking about Banger Racing, and it’s best viewed with a fresh plate of fish and chips and a cold brew from Okells in your hand.

Hit play, sit back, and take in the majesty that is Banger Racing on the Isle of Man.

(Also, we need to find a way to get some Hooniverse stickers on Hendo’s Lexus…)

Jason’s back from his birthday hiatus (and his stint on the hoonicast and TST), and he’s joined as usual by Cam and Tub. Cam’s still recording with his cellular telephone, hopefully for the last time. We really had fun with this hour, and we hope you enjoy it.

Hooniverse Asks: What’s the Most Overcrowded Automotive Category?

Jaguar-C-X17-side-view-2

Jaguar is planning on entering the already highly competitive luxury sport utility market with the F-Pace longroof next year. That puts the British brand about a decade and a half behind the competition, but hey, the more the merrier, right?

There are a number of automotive categories that seem to be stuffed the way ’50s college kids packed coeds into phone booths. Variety may be the spice of life, but many of these categories are just too dang hot to handle! Which of these do you think is the most unnecessarily over-filled? What in your opinion is the most overcrowded automotive category?

Called “Porsche with Meteorite” this 2013 modern art installation by Chris Burden proved one thing and one thing alone, and that is that I do not understand modern art.
