V.I.S.I.T. – 1970 Saab 95

IMG_20140924_125534

If there’s anything I’ve learned while living in Seattle, it’s that the coolest cars show up in the most unexpected places. Just last night, a Hummer H1 truck was parked in the neighbor’s driveway; the week before I was driving behind something that looked like a space capsule on wheels. You know never what you’re going to see on the streets, and this blue beauty is no different. … Continue Reading

V8 Supercars – Mount and the Mustang

Capture

As many of my fellow Hoons know, the Bathurst 1000 is less than two weeks away. The biggest race on the Australian continent – the race that stops a nation – is ramping up, and one of my favorite drivers, Mark Winterbottom is helping set the stage with this beautiful video tour of the mighty Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst. He couldn’t have picked a better car do it in, either. This is a gorgeous Mustang, even if the steering wheel is on the wrong side!

The great thing about the Mount Panorama circuit is that it’s a public road, and Frosty does a great job of showing how ordinary and unassuming the track is most of the year. Oh sure – it’s hard to look past the red and white curbs, and the sponsor signs are everywhere, but with a 60kph speed limit and two-way traffic, this road looks like, well, a road. Have a look at the video below and see if you don’t agree. I’m excited for the race; I’m looking forward to an epic battle between Ford, Holden, Nissan, Volvo, and AMG (although I want to see the blue oval on top again).

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
