Hooniverse judges the cars of the 2014 LA Auto Show

Greg Kachadurian November 20, 2014 LA Auto Show

It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the professional auto journalists here at Hooniverse to cover the dozen or so shiny new cars making their global debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show this week.

By “cover” them, I really mean pass judgments on them from the comfort of our own keyboards. Only a few of us were able to make it out to the show this year but that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t pretend to be there covering it. In here you won’t find any boring spec sheets or overdone metaphors for the styling of a side mirror. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any facts at all (that’s all coming in The News tomorrow). What you’ll get instead are the unfiltered and [brutally] honest opinions from some of the creative minds that make up this corner of the Web we call The Hooniverse.

So click past the jump and see what we have to say.
