Don’t Blow Your Holiday Budget On Black Friday!

Ray Lindenburg November 26, 2014 All Things Hoon


Why?  Well because that just feeds the corporate overlords you need to set aside some cash for Cyber Monday, and perhaps most importantly, dozens of copies of the 2015 Hooniverse Calendar!  We’ve made some changes this year in response to customer feedback, such as a wire binding, heavier paper, and OMG yes, an attachment orifice.

Judge Me If You Will

Ray Lindenburg October 13, 2014 Quick Shifts


Remember when George Costanza bought John Voights car? His claim to fame was to share the same tufted pleather cushion with the actor.  Or, so he thought.  Turns out that the Deliverance star spells his first name just a little differently, and George had an imposter star car.

Winter Flashback: The Pittsburgh Parking Chair


While much of the country basks in early-spring sunshine, as they have for the past, oh several million years, others of us in northern climes have been struggling to survive yet another arctic blast or polar vortex or whatever they are calling it this time around. Yes, it snowed again today in Salt Lake City, and no, I’m not bitter. I am relieved that I didn’t have to clear any snow, or silently curse my neighbors for taking my one on-street parking space again.

Why is that important? In my neighborhood, I either have enough room for one car or our two trash bins at the curb in front of my very narrow house. Not all three, or even one car and one bin. So I generally leave the garbage cans out significantly longer than is usually accepted in a modern society. If only there was such a civilized place where one could reserve their on-street parking spot.

Wait, there is. Pittsburgh.

The 2014 Hooniverse Calendar is HERE!


You were probably all paralyzed with fear this Turkey Day weekend – football passed by, turkey passed by, Black Friday came and went, more football passed by, more football passed by, The Walking Dead went on hiatus, you realized it was December already…

Then you awoke this morning to find…

K-Car Abomination Gives Man (another) Stroke


What fresh hell is this?

Might be one response to the above photo.  Or, “it looks like a 1956 1957 1958 1959 1960 era Corvette.”  Perhaps even a “Ferrari” or “Thunderbird.”  But if you’re Hooniverse’s own Jim Brennan, the reaction is, 

"It's giving me another stroke just looking at it..."

A Race Rookie at Sears Pointless 2013


As you may have seen in previous posts, two of your trusty Hooniverse correspondents were able to finagle their way onto a real-life racing team… well, a 24 Hours of LeMons team at least. Sure, they might be $500 cars, but the experience is about the most fun a person can have for any price.

So there I am in the lede photo, driving the #32 FX32 – a twin-engined beast engineered by the geniuses at Stick Figure Racing. I’ll be honest, most of my involvement with the building of the car was keeping the real workers fed with delicious donuts from Banbury Cross. But I did help a bit too – I drew very accurate arrows on the proper lug holes in the wheels, kept the green and orange stripes fairly straight – important stuff. … Continue Reading

FX32 Lemons Build Update: The Final Edition

It’s been a long and harrowing journey, but there is light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.  The Frankenstein’s monster known as the FX32 has neared completion (there are some loose ends to zip-tie up) and rests today on a trailer, ready to be hauled to its eventual destruction glory on the smooth pavement of Sonoma Raceway.
