The Hooniverse Q&A with Duncan Ende

YouTube Preview Image

You all know Duncan Ende. He’s the SoCal Hot shoe that has helped us out with, well, a lot. From appearing on the Podcast with Jeff and Blake, to helping us out with the new Miata, Duncan has been a good friend to us here at Hooniverse. With him being in town for TRG Aston Martin for the Pirelli World Challenge I thought I should sit down with him and ask some questions from fans of the site… … Continue Reading

Truck Thursday: Some Of The Saturday Trucks Seen At The Branson Auction


I logged into all things Hoon recently and realized I had not completed my coverage of the Branson Auction from a coupla weeks back so I thought I would get this update gathered up for my fellow Hoon’s Truck Thursday enjoyment.

This olelongrooffan has related that on more than one occasion I would spot a vehicle and in short order would see another similar type ride. Well, my fellow Hoons, that tradition continues on, this time in the version of Tow Mater.


The sightings of these things since I moved to the Ozarks continues to amaze this olelongrooffan even if this one is in the form of a golf cart. Feel free to click on through to see some of the other trucks spotted that Saturday.

Fort Lauderdale Auctions America 2015: The EuroClassic Edition


So there this olelongrooffan was, hanging out at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center and checking out some pretty seriously cool cars and trucks. Well at least to me anyway. As I gathered the above image of this sweet old ragtop, I tried to remember if I had ever seen one in the flesh and I don’t believe I have. It is a sweet and rare ride. I contemplated using this image as Mystery Car post but I figured my fellow Hoons would have it identified prior to completely loading. If my fellow Hoons are having difficulty ID-ing this thing, please feel free to make the jump.

Let’s continue on with the Weekend Edition of Quick Hits, and I have to ask this question… Would you want, desire, or even covet a 1982 Chevrolet Chevette, equipped with the bare essentials and an Automatic, that has only ever been driven 380 miles? Now here is your chance to own what is probably the last new Chevrolet Chevette available for sale. Is it even remotely collectible?

Weekend Edition – An Estate Auction in Central PA, Featuring Interesting Fords…

Recently Updated49

This will be the last post for this weekend, but I think it is one of the most interesting posts I have written about since the Lambrecht Chevrolet Company Auction I did last year (Which was an internet sensation…) but this is on a much smaller scale. Still, the Fords being offered are interesting, so take a look after the jump…

Weekend Edition – The Paul J. Burt Collection Auction, with 125 vehicles at no reserve…

Fullscreen capture 9142013 94625 AM.bmp

Welcome to another Weekend Edition here at the Hooniverse. When you think of Classic Car Auctions, like the ones that run in Arizona in January, you think of very polished classics that sell at ridiculous sums of money, often going unsold because the seller thinks his (or her) object of lust is worth more than the market will bear. Well, there is an upcoming auction in which each and every vehicle will be sold without a reserve, and it’s the The Paul J. Burt Collection Auction that will be held on Saturday, September 21st, in Lake Forest, Illinois. Let’s take a look at a sampling of some of the vehicles being auctioned off…

Weekend Edition – Ex-Danish Army 1988 Mercedes-Benz GD 240


This weekend I’ve posted a couple of ex-Norwegian Army vehicles. This 1988 Geländerwagen is Danish, for a change. It too is army surplus, as the paintjob can tell a well-trained eye.

It’s pretty worn, but comes with service history as military vehicles often do. Check it out.

Video from the Mecum Auction Floor: Wrong car for this crowd – German drop-top edition

 bmw 328 mecum

Most of the machines that cross the block in a Mecum auction are muscle machines. Big engines and bold styling grab the crowds, and also grab their dollars. Sometimes there is a vehicle that arrives and is a bit unique. Occasionally this turns out well for the seller, and a nice profit can be had. This was not the case, however, for the owner of a 1997 BMW 328i convertible that rolled up to the auction floor.

It’s the wrong place for this car. In fact, it shouldn’t be an any auction unless it’s the type that has vehicles with grease pen writing on the windows. Click past the break to watch the oh-so-sad German sled make a short-trip to No-Salesville.
