Found on eBay: 1991 Ford SkyRanger

Skyranger

The obvious question, when looking at this Modified Ford Ranger, is, “What the hell is going on here?” It has a body kit, and a wing at the front of the bed…and at the back! Ground effects and 4×4 trucks don’t usually make great bedfellows, but that’s none of this truck’s business. Oh, and let’s not forget that convertible top and the killer tape stripes.

This is not my car, but it is in my garage, and all of my projects are on hold for the moment, so here’s an update on my friend’s 1931 Chevrolet 5-window coupe, which we dragged out of some guy’s back yard a few weeks ago.

vlv lede

The 18th annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender is about to kick off at the Orleans Casino/Resort in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. Rockabilly is the name of the game at this event. From the cars to the fashion to the music, it’s all rockabilly, all the time. This oddly specific event features a car show for strictly pre-1963 vehicles which must be done in the style of the era – no billet wheels or pro-touring cars allowed.

Hoonivercinema- Monday Bonus Music Video

Gardena stock car race

This lede image is, sadly, not part of the music video here.  In fact, it isn’t a video at all, but it is a link to a Drive-By Truckers song called “Daddy’s Cup” on YouTube. The song is all about a father and son who live their lives for racing.  Given the subject matter, I have deemed it worthy of the Hooniverse.

Classic Toy: 1974 Toyota Hilux

Scott Ith January 20, 2015 All Things Hoon, For Sale

HiLux

Small trucks are pretty much a thing of the past. In the automotive industry, the segment’s death has been much-lamented, at least in the auto-journo realm. If you want a miniature pickup truck that will deliver good gas mileage and great utility, you’ll have to look to the past. This Hilux, for sale in Salt Lake City, fits the bill perfectly.

Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers: Aftermarket Fender Flares

Flares

My name is Scott and it is on these pages that I wage my lonely battle. The battle, that is, against aftermarket fender flares. Sadly, this may not be a popular opinion, but lets take a look at a couple of examples of vehicles that look better as-produced than they do with random stuff screwed to their sides. (By the way, all vehicles fall into this category.)

Parking Lot Sighting: Greyhound Centennial Tour

Scott Ith November 10, 2014 All Things Hoon

Greyhound

Greyhound is celebrating 100 years of cross-country transit service with a cross-country historical tour. The Centennial Tour features vehicles dating back to a 1914 Hupmobile. I did not get a chance to see the actual display, but these four coaches caught my eye at in a local hotel parking lot. Naturally, I snapped some low-quality cell phone pictures to share with the Hooniverse.

Cruising Electric – Family Fun (NSFW)

Cruising

RAMJAC introduced this excellent slot car set themed after the famous Al Pacino film Cruising. The toy promised to be at least as much fun as the film, and it certainly delivered. Featuring a sweet Chevy van and a Mopar police car, among many other great details, this set would make a great collector piece today.

Hit the jump for the trailer and lock eyes with the TV ad.

Technology and Stuff – Chevrolet Spokesman Botches World Series MVP Presentation

Bumgarner

Who doesn’t love the internet?  Well, Miss Teen South Carolina, for one. Maybe that woman who fell out of the grape stomping vat – she might not love the internet. Today, Chevrolet’s spokesman Rikk Wilde probably isn’t too fond of the internet. Following last night’s World Series win by the San Francisco Giants, Mr. Wilde had the honor of presenting the MVP award and a new Chevrolet Colorado to MVP pitcher Madison Bumgarner.

The result was memorable.

Rotten Rental Car Review: 2013 Mitsubishi Mirage

Mirage

The Mitsubishi Mirage. The car of the people. The car that will be lucky to go down in the annals of automotive history as a mere footnote. A mirage, if you will. If what you are looking for is to blend in, to go unnoticed, to fly under the radar (or at least drive under the speeds that radar would notice), then the Mirage is the car for you.

On the other hand, does this little car have some bright spots? Might it be quirky enough to be enjoyable to drive? Click through and find out.
