We start this episode of cars that are living and/or dying in Poland with some bad news.

Hooniverse Goes To The Virginia City Hillclimb

Just last week I was listening to the Smoking Tire podcast (when I’m not listening to the Hooniverse podcast or hosting the Cammed & Tubbed podcast, of course), when I heard mention that the famous Cobb Tuned Fiesta ST would be making an appearance at the Virginia City Hill Climb …

Hooniverse Asks: What’s the Stupidest Thing Someone Else Has Done While You Were in the Car?

Robert Emslie September 4, 2015 Hooniverse Asks


Last week Rob Zombie stuffed his 1971 Porsche 911T into the back corner of a parked auto transport while an auto journalist was riding with him. UPDATE: It turns out that wasn’t Rob Zombie that was involved in the wreck but noted Rob Zombie impersonator, Magnus Walker. Hey, it was an honest mistake.

In fact we’ll cut Magnus, or Rob, or whatever he’s calling himself this week, a little slack because getting in a little over one’s head is something I’m sure we’ve all had happen once or twice. Today however, we’re not interested in your personal transgressions, but those of others, to which you were personally privy. What was the stupidest thing that someone has done – automotively – while you were in the car?

About Last Week’s Mystery Car

Robert Emslie September 4, 2015 Mystery Car


Hey, do you recall last week’s Mystery Car? It looked something like the picture above. Well, actually, it looked exactly like the picture above as that’s the same picture. No body guessed the identity correctly – and that was even after asking our friends on Jalopnik to weigh in – so I’m providing the shocking answer – yes, it really will be shocking – after the jump. I make you work for your answer, clicking that MORE link, because not everybody is ready to have the fun spoiled just a week later. … Continue Reading

Long Shots: Elkys and Econolines

LongRoofian September 3, 2015 All Things Hoon


Because we all love Elkys and Econolines. Last weekend this olelongrooffan traveled the back roads up to enjoy a leisurely lunch with a long time ago girlfriend, the badgecarryingblonde, and on the way home over in the neighboring burg of Walnut Shade, I spotted a car lot with these two beauties parked out front. That Elky was priced at a mere thirty five hundred bucks. Click on through to see what else was spotted that sunny late summer day here in the Ozark Mountains.

Magazine Time Machine: Road & Track June 1958


This morning a co-worker sold me a crate full of vintage car magazines, more than 70 issues in total, so I thought it might be nice to share some of the highlights with my favorite Hoons. This issue is chock full of amazing stuff that happened well before I was born, but I loved every page more as I flipped through. That cover art really sets the tone for a high quality, well edited, and gorgoeusly produced periodical. They just don’t do magazine art direction like they used to. This cover, featuring Citroen’s beautiful ID-19, stuck out to me as I was rifling through the case of beautifully preserved magazines. While I will likely end up re-selling many of these magazines, this particular cover is so striking that I will definitely be framing it and hanging it in my home.

Visionary: 1994 Eagle Vision Aerie Concept in an alternative timeline


Chrysler showcased this enhanced version of the then-fresh Eagle Vision at the 1994 Chicago Auto Show, amidst what seems like bubble wrap. The Eagle Vision Aerie Concept benefited from a pokier development of the 3.5-litre V6 under the hood: the regular, consumer-issue unit had 214 horsepower, but the one in the Aerie was said to produce as much as 274 horses. As well as the improved engine, the Aerie had fancy phone and fax capabilities with an automated emergency call system.

In any case, the Vision was short-lived in Eagle guise, even if the capable FWD platform ended up birthing the even-more-swoopy Chrysler 300M. The Vision nameplate died without siring a son, and there were no latter-day Talons to accompany Mitsubishi Eclipse sales. But looking at the concept’s front end treatment, there’s something unanswered deep inside that can only be brought to the light of day via PhotoShop.

The Bean Machine: Coffee Vending Done Properly


So, the Beautiful Days Festival was as much fun as the lineup (featuring House Of Pain, Dropkick Murphys and Gogol Bordello and more) suggested it might be, yet there was no escaping the fact that, if you’re as caffiene dependent as I am it would have been a torturous weekend if there was no decent coffee available.

As you’re aware I’ve made life hard for myself following my boycott of any catering issued from a Citroen “H” van, but happily there were none of those to be seen here. My quest for coffee led me to the far side of the arena, where I encountered The Bean Machine and it so overawed me that I elected it to be my sole supplier of hot drinks for the entirety of the festival.

Click the jump to see why.
