What Was Your Automotive News for 2017?

Greg Kachadurian December 29, 2017 The News!

Well guys, it’s that time of year again. The clock strikes midnight upon a new year in just a few days, so we might as well reflect on what 2017 gave us. Because the automotive news is practically non existent this week, I’m reserving this time slot for you to reminisce on the events – good or bad – that defined your automotive-related news for the year. It was certainly an eventful year for a lot of us inside the rejects club Hooniverse staff and amongst our most loyal readers, so now is the time to relive it. Whether you took on a new project or three, went to a bucket list event, bought something new, or just spent the year breaking everything, we wanna hear about it.

Thanks for staying with us this year. May your traffic lights be green and your revs high in 2018. Cheers!

HCOTY 2017 Nominee: Pioneer Ford’s F-150 SVT Lightning Tribute

I’ve been pretty fortunate to get seat time in some great cars over the years. I don’t drive nearly the amount that our chief blooger does, but I remember most of the ones I do get to experience pretty fondly. Of those dozens of cars, there are only two that I’ve ever fallen head over heels in love with. Like, really in love. Only two cars were special enough to make me dream about them on a daily basis many months and years later. These are cars that I need to own no matter what drawbacks or compromises there are.

The first one is the BMW E92 M3, the first fast car I’ve ever driven and is still my benchmark for what a performance car should be.

The other one is my Hooniversal Car of the Year nominee for 2017. It’s the Pioneer Ford F-150 SVT Lightning Tribute, the 650-horsepower monster that shattered all of my expectations for what a truck can be. It was also our most popular story of the year and one of the coolest things I’ve ever gotten to do, so my nominee couldn’t be anything else.

What’s your automotive news for the week?

Greg Kachadurian November 24, 2017 All Things Hoon

If you’re reading this, congratulations on making it through another Thanksgiving. We’re all either off being lazy somewhere or getting in fist fights for a TV. But hopefully you got the chance to spend some time in the garage or on the road this week – if you did, we want to hear about it!

If you saw anything, fixed something, broke everything, or otherwise did anything even remotely car related that you want to share with your fellow hoon, sound off in the comments.

Have a good weekend.
