The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 55 – Trash Talk

We’ve hit the double nickel with a shorter than usual episode 55. Cam, Brad, and Jason are at it again with some audio high jinks. It’s mostly in good fun, and only partially in good taste, so go give it a listen. This episode’s topics include: Brad’s recording remotely from …

Hooniverse Podcast: Episode 104 – Matt D’Andria on Paul Newman

On this week’s episode of the Hooniverse Podcast: 1. Matt D’Andria from CarCast graces us with his presence, as well as the spectral energy of Paul Newman: D’andria has spent the better part of the past two years working with Adam Carolla on Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman. …

Hooniverse Reviews: Project CARS

Crowd funding is perhaps the most common and easiest way to launch a new product or business these days. It seems like everyone is doing it and the video game industry has fully embraced it as well. So it’s nothing new. At all. But what happens when a game developer turns …

An Audio Guide To The Indianapolis 500

This is it. This is the Indy 500. It’s probably one of the most revered races in all of motorsport. Right up there with the Daytona 500, the Monaco Grand Prix (also this weekend), the 24 Hours of Le Mans, etc. It’s the second oldest racing event in the country, …

Weekend Edition – Helsinki Street Sightings: Ford SportKa


The Ford Ka is a neatly packaged, if seemingly disposable little car. They appear to rust so quickly, I think the numbers of first generation cars will dwindle in the next decade.

So, while there still are common Ka:s, let’s take a look at this sportier version, aptly named the SportKa. There was also a droptop version, named the StreetKa. Being able to take either for a spin would definitely be interesting.

Weekend Edition – Helsinki Street Sightings: Hyundai Coupe


The facelifted Hyundai Coupe – or Tiburon in select markets – has now reached the age where it kind of looks cool. No, really, hear me out: I don’t hate the bug-eyed front. Sure, it makes barely any sense compared to the attractive-but-maybe-a-little-plain original, but viewed on its own, it’s bold and daring and swoopy.

It does appear a little small-wheeled, but these things are getting very cheap and they still seem to hold on pretty decently, at least here.

Last Call: Friday Weld Edition

Robert Emslie May 22, 2015 Last Call


Walking the Cup is a method of welding that gives – to the highly skilled welder at least – an even overlapping bead that’s both functional and a work of art. If you’re interested in a lesson on how this is kind of work is done, check out this video by a self described TIG-certified socially awkward 20-year old.

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.

Outsider’s Perspective: Sorry Lancia, we’ll have to let you go


A couple of days ago I was doing my ordinary perusal of eBay, because my life is extremely exciting and interesting, when I noticed that a beautiful Lancia Fulvia had been posted up for sale. And yes, it did got me to lament the slow and excruciatingly painful death that they’ve experienced over the last couple of decades. Sadly, it also made me realize that Lancia is no longer needed or wanted in the market.

Found on eBay: 1991 Ford SkyRanger

Scott Ith May 22, 2015 eBay Insanity


The obvious question, when looking at this Modified Ford Ranger, is, “What the hell is going on here?” It has a body kit, and a wing at the front of the bed…and at the back! Ground effects and 4×4 trucks don’t usually make great bedfellows, but that’s none of this truck’s business. Oh, and let’s not forget that convertible top and the killer tape stripes.

Win this 810 horsepower 2015 MMD by Foose Mustang

MMD by Foose Burnout Composite

If you saw the news today, you know that Modern Muscle Design (MMD) and Chip Foose unveiled a one-off 2015 Ford Mustang with unique styling and some awesome power to back up the good looks. The reason for this follow up post is because AmericanMuscle is going to give away this one-off Mustang to a lucky someone who will soon become a friendly neighborhood tire slayer, and that sounds like just the kind of title that a hoon should earn.

Details on the car and how to win an 810 horsepower one-off Mustang penned by Chip Foose himself are after the jump.

Mystery Car

Robert Emslie May 22, 2015 Mystery Car


Mr Rogers’ Neighborhood debuted on this date in 1967. I don’t know about you, but I consider Fred Rogers as the epitome of how a human should act, and comport themselves.

I’m sure that if you were perhaps flummoxed by today’s Mystery Car, Mr Rogers would have consoling words that would make everything all right. If you in fact know the answer to this week’s contest – make and model, the whole ball of wax – then he’d let your know how proud he was of you, and how everyone else should be proud of just trying.

About Last Week’s Mystery Car

Robert Emslie May 22, 2015 Mystery Car

Mystery Car Answer

You know, I thought last week’s Mystery Car would be a slam dunk, but I guess I was mistaken. Here’s a little more of that one for you, another layer of the onion peeled back, as it were. I’m pretty sure each and every one of you will get it with this much exposed. If you’re now hankering for another challenge, don’t worry, a new Mystery Car is right around the corner!

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 55 – Trash Talk


We’ve hit the double nickel with a shorter than usual episode 55. Cam, Brad, and Jason are at it again with some audio high jinks. It’s mostly in good fun, and only partially in good taste, so go give it a listen.

This episode’s topics include: Brad’s recording remotely from a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and PHEV launch*, The D (No drinks, no desk, just driving music this week), Cameron’s in a foul mood and pulls very few punches**, New Camaro, a discussion of journalist conduct on press launches, Carlos Lago leaving Motor Trend, and probably other things. I had to leave early to get to dinner, so I missed the last bit. It’ll be just as much a surprise to you as it is to me!

The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Trash Talk

*Hyundai launch embargo stands until the 26th, you can read all about it then!
** The views and opinions expressed by Cam are not necessarily the views of Hooniverse, the Cammed & Tubbed podcast as a whole, or literally anyone else. He was in a bad mood, I guess.
