Craigslist: 1991 Ford F-150 is Ready to Take You Back in Time

00000_kQUQtdrTlys_600x450

For your Truck Thursday enjoyment, I present to you what might be the coolest truck on the internet today.

1991 was a good year for Ford trucks – it was the final year of the 8th-generation F-Series, and with a full range of trim levels on offer, Ford was determined to send it out with a bang. This truck is one of the nicest examples of a top-of-the-line XLT Lariat that I have seen in a long time. Take the jump below and see if you don’t agree.

V.I.S.I.T. – BMW 733 Has Been Around a Time or Two

IMG_20140607_130020

I’ve always been attracted to the look of the BMW 7 Series E23 cars, especially the 745. To me, it combines the classic muscle car look in a contemporary German grand touring design. So when I ran across this 733 recently, I had to stop and get a closer look. … Continue Reading

2014 GT500 Shelby Super Snake is Everything You Think It Is

IMG_20140720_114750

A few weeks ago, I went the annual Northwest Mustang Roundup and All Ford show on the campus of Bellevue College. With its tall fir and hemlock trees providing a verdant backdrop, acres upon acres of Mustangs and Fords of all kinds lay before us like a blue oval buffet. One of them stood out above the others, though; it was head and shoulders (and haunches) above the rest. Like what you see? Take the jump below to see more. … Continue Reading

Hoon’s Day Out: NHRA O’Reilly Auto Parts Northwest Nationals

IMG_20140803_133031

A few months ago, I got an email from the NHRA with a special offer just for me. If I ponied up the dough for two reserved seats at the Northwest Nationals in August, they would throw in VIP parking and two tickets to a Lucas Oil event in the future. Needless to say, I bit. I’m a lot of things, but a fool isn’t one: the big boys only come around here once a year, and if you know Pacific Raceways at all, you know VIP parking alone is worth the price. I decided to take my wife along this time, and it proved to be one of the best races of the summer. Take the jump below to read more about our adventures.

Hooniverse Asks Bonus: What’s the Creepiest Vehicle You’ve Ever Seen?

221219047

One of my new favorite Twitter accounts is Abandoned Places, a site dedicated to derelict, decaying, and disused buildings around the world. Oftentimes, this includes abandoned vehicles, left to slowly decompose and return to the earth, a rusty reminder of better days. Last night, I saw this rusted out London bus and wanted to share it with you all.

We’re all familiar with the popular Living and Dying series that features here at the Hooniverse quite often: cars all over the world are put out to pasture (sometimes literally) and left to die. The question to you is simple: what is the weirdest, creepiest, or perhaps coolest abandoned vehicle you have ever seen with your own eyes?

Craigslist Find: 1986 Volkswagen Golf

00E0E_6OCvvpmrlaL_600x45001212_6OsCgPtbg6Y_600x450

There’s just something about a small German hatchback that makes me happy. It  could be the clean, straight lines that epitomize the 80′s econobox, or the simple, honest fun of driving an underpowered car to its limits and beyond. Around here, we call it slow car fast, and as we all know, slow car fast is fun to da max. Let’s take a look at this example, shall we? … Continue Reading

Shots in the Lot: 1969 Pontiac Firebird

IMG_20140614_122522

Not to be outdone by the glorious golden Firebird we looked at last week, this blue bird was spotted in a Redmond parking lot just a few weeks ago. As usual, I decided to stop and get a few pictures to share with all y’all. Check it out. … Continue Reading

Craigslist: 1964 Mercury Park Lane with Some Junk in the Trunk

00y0y_4Nt0jrk8FYq_600x450

The summer weather finally here to stay for a few weeks in the Puget Sound area, I’ve got the urge to throw a sleeping bag in the back of the truck and hit the road for some serious summer outdoor fun. However, I do have a wife, which means I not only have requirements this camper/canopy/cap must meet, but a budget it must stay under. So I’ve been on the hunt for a good camper shell, canopy, or cap to sit atop the bed of my F-150

It was just as I was about to pull the trigger on a sweet aluminum shell with leaky windows that I came across this, the 1964 Mercury Park Lane with that glorious breezeway window. Some of you are probably wondering why I would consider a 50-year old family car an alternative to a flimsy canopy, but like many cars from the 60′s, there’s more here than meets the eye. Check it out. … Continue Reading

V.I.S.I.T. – Murica Edition

IMG_20140704_122959

This year for Independence Day, the wife and I decided not to blow up our own fireworks, opting instead to watch the city do it for us; after all, those tax dollars aren’t going to spend themselves. However, I did run down to the fireworks stand to pick up the obligatory sparklers and morning glories to make the kids happy. It was on that sunny day one week ago that I came across this flaming beacon of freedom – the Pontiac Firebird.

It’s not unusual to spot the occasional Firebird or Trans Am around here, but seeing one this nice is a rare bird, indeed. Most 3rd-generation F-body Camaros or Firebirds I see these days are sagging, sunburnt, and slow – a little like their owners. This appears to be a 1983 model with matching gold wheels, but the experts among us can correct me if I’m wrong. All I know is I know what I like, and I like this. A lot. It’s in good shape, including the correct bad panel gaps! A few scuffs here and there, but nothing unusual for a 30-year old car.

There is nothing that says ‘Murica quite like a shiny gold, T-top Firebird, is there? I want to grow a mullet and pop in a Bruce Springsteen cassette just looking at this. The thing that makes me the most proud, though? Just as I finished taking these pictures, a teenage boy trotted out of the store and hopped in with his buddy. This kid has good taste.

Rental Car Review: 2014 Ford Fusion SE

IMG_20140502_201836

Last fall, I told you about my experience with the 2013 Chevy Cruze LTZ. We had rented it for a trip down the Oregon coast, and we enjoyed our time in the car; the EcoTec 4-cylinder handled my right-food requests well enough, and it rode like a sporty compact should. This past weekend, we made the same trip again, but in a 2014 Ford Fusion SE with the EcoBoost engine. How would the Ford measure up? Take the jump below to find out. … Continue Reading
