Who Needs a Calendar? You do.

Ray Lindenburg November 19, 2012 All Things Hoon 29 Comments

With all the technology that surrounds us these days, it’s good to know that there are still things made of metal and paper and real stuff.  Like calendars.  Sure, your smart phone has one built in, your car can probably tell you what day it is and there’s likely an electronic day planner at the bottom of your cereal bowl.  Okay, I may exaggerate a bit, but I’ll tell you right now that your iPhone will not respond well to having a nail driven through it. 

The 2013 Hooniverse Calendar will, however.  That’s why you need one.  Save your iPhone for Youtube videos, games, and whatever else you may enjoy (ahem).  Put this calendar on your wall.  With a nail.  Like they did in the old days.

It’s been designed to be nice and simple – easily readable from across the garage, and chock full of awesome photos that you may or may not have seen here on the pages of Hooniverse.com or in the Forums. 

It’ll be available starting on Cyber Monday – that’s the 26th for us oldtimers.  So set aside a few bucks and buy one for yourself and a friend.  They’ll love you for it.  Coming soon to a Hooniverse near you…

    I like it, but I think it could use some grid lines, so you can write stuff in on the dates.

    • I purposely left the grid lines off – I could make the date numbers bigger that way. And honestly, I like the look.

      Calender notes must be written in Sidewalk Chalk.

    English/Finnish/Polish. How quirky. What size is this thing and do you deliver to places outside US?

    There is one typo, too. Sunday in Finnish is Sunnuntai, one N is missing.

      The Polish is missing diacritics, and Polish calendars start on Monday. That's okay though I still want it. Oh wait, I know, make eight columns, ha! I'll just go and use a sharpie on the Polish if I have to.

      poniedziałek wtorek środa czwartek piątek sobota niedziela

      • You all are a bunch of diacritics. Ha!

        I'll fix the Sunnuntai issue, but I'm not sure the Polish with get its little fuzzy things. I don't think my fancy font has those.

        The quirk is a result of our international cast of writers. Haven't finalized the details on ordering, but it should be 8.5×11-ish. More to come soon – I'll check and see if international orders are available.

          LOL @ "little fuzzy things", but I, too, came here to say that I love the unusual combination of English/Finnish/Polish. Beats the usual English/Spanish/French (though this half-Pole might be a bit biased).

          Try this. http://archive.tlt.psu.edu/suggestions/internatio

          Also, from your Start menu, search 'charmap.exe' for a complete list of accents and keyboard codes.

          While learning French, I picked up on the most common accent codes pretty quickly.

  • can i get 2012 calendars at discount?

    • danleym

      Screw dates. I just want pictures.

    • There's no such thing as a 2012 Hooniverse calendar. May I interest you in a crappy hatchback calendar instead? 🙂

  • Van_Sarockin

    How odd and impractical. Those poor couch cushions are going to have the change shaken out of them like they've never seen.

    • Hell, I'll even clean the wife's car!! (ew!)

      There's gotta be at least a dollar in nickles under them seats.


  • Everyone on my list is getting one! My 8 year old neice is going to be pissed!

  • Tough choice between this and the Hemming's Abandoned Autos calendar. Which one to put where……

    • dukeisduke

      I've been buying the abandoned autos calendars for 20 years, and I'll buy another one this year.

  • Motusid

    Can i get one shipped to India?

  • Rover1

    Aaand how much is postage to New Zealand?

  • SSurfer321

    I may have to snag this, but for the last umpteen years I've been getting my calendars from REEF.

      Ladies of Hooniverse calender? I don't think there are enough around…

  • So, how many car calendars are too many? 6, right guys? 7? God, I am going to be calendar rich in 2013!

    • MVEilenstein

      One for each room. Two for the garage. One for the office.

    • danleym

      I don't think the other 11 months are NSXes. Just wanted to clarify, I'd hate to see you disappointed.

  • Van_Sarockin

    And, fuck you. I'll drive a nail through my iPhone and time I damn well please!

  • mr. mzs zsm msz esq

    It's not in the shop yet, I don't know how much longer my disposable money will be safe from car-lashes!
