Announcing the 2014 Hooniversal Car of the Year!

The Prestigious Hooniversal Car of the Year award!

The Prestigious Hooniversal Car of the Year award!

You know, if you had asked me to predict this year’s winner, I can honestly say I would not have guessed correctly. I may have had my hopes, but I would certainly not have guessed it. With all the flashiness, the show, the look-at-me attention-grabbing of most of the other nominations, I would not have guessed that the most Hooniverse of all the nominations would actually take home the green participation ribbon coveted trophy.

YouTube Preview Image

One of the greatest channels on the You Tubes is, without question, the Hot Rod Garage. Hosts David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan have announced that they are looking for a new person to join their team and deliver piping hot video awesome.

To apply, you’re going to need to make a video of your own. Once you post it to your own channel, comment on the above video with a link to your own video. The Hot Rod team will find it and whittle down some finalists with help from their viewers.

Now is your chance to put your knowledge to work for actual money… and get a leg up on what I do, for no money. Seriously, someone reading this would probably be a great fit for their team since you all know way more than the average car guy or gal.

Hooniversal Secret Ninja Claus: Part… something

Jo Schmo December 8, 2014 Announcements, HSNC


Welcome back to HSNC, the thirty-third of Nevuary!  Shall we play a game?

Whelp, it’s that time of year again.  A time of giving.  A time of receiving (maybe… if you signed up last year and did not participate move on.)  Rules are same as always. Contact me via ninjaclaus@atomictoasters.com and I will match you up with your secret victim and someone else will get your contact info to send you nefarious… uh stuff.  You can also follow us in our Facebook Group, however I won’t be accepting requests there this year.  It is a logistical nightmare to match FB and non-FB participants.  There is no cap on this because who really puts a value on car related crap right?  Someone might get a hubcap from a retired LeMons car, someone might get a brand new Xbox with the latest Forza on it, and, hopefully this year everybody gets something.  I have a list and I am checking it twice.  I know who has been naughty and nice so if you signed up last year and didn’t follow through you will have to send two crummy gifts this year to participate.  Anywho, this is fun for a bunch of people so ifn you wanna play, then play.   It’s my bad that I am late getting this going so I will run this all the way up through new years if you guys want (I have reports that some of last years people finally received gifts as late as last month.  Better late than never?)

Merry Hoonimas everybody!

Is it possible that another year has slid by again?  Well, not quite, but close.  There are but a precious few pages left in your 2014 Hooniverse Calendar, so that means it’s time to look back over the past year for tasty new photos for the 2015 version.

Petrolicious wants your help in rewriting a lame law

Our friends at Petrolicious loves cars just as much as we do. They also have an aching for a bit of the forbidden fruit that currently can’t be imported into the United States. As it stands, you have to wait 25 years to get your hands on cool iron that was never offered up for our market.

Petrolicious wants to change that, and you can help.

Go to Petrolicious to read about their reasoning and motivations for creating a petition to change the DOT/EPA 25-Year Exemption Rule (AKA The Motor Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988). Or if you want to jump straight to the petition to change this to a 15-year rule and add your name to the list, go here: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/repeal-dotepa-%E2%80%9C25-year-rule%E2%80%9D-car-import-ban-15-years-and-allow-importation-non-conforming-cars-and/PhZ4RMgz



It’s not peer pressure. Just because I don’t lay on my back every evening with warm multigrade running down the inside of my sleeves doesn’t make me any less of a man. Much as I’d have liked one, I’ve never had a project car because I’ve never really had the time, the space, the funds nor the knowledge to take one on. Well, we all have to start somewhere.

Suddenly, and probably misguidedly, my daily driver Audi has become my project car. Take the jump for all the how on Earths and the why the hells.

Project Civic Si(gh): The kids are alright

high school civic

Is that not a wonderful photo?

That is a merry band of high school students getting their hands dirty and learning how to wrench on a car. Some of them are elbow deep in my Honda Civic, because it needs a bit of work as you all know. Actually, it needs a tiny bit more than I originally thought, and you can see why after the jump.

Two Wheels or Four? eBay Is Giving You A Choice In A New Contest

Jeff Glucker March 24, 2014 Announcements


eBay clearly likes to give away vehicles. We’re fine with that, because the vehicles they typically offer up are rather interesting. Case in point is their latest giveway, which sees two folks walking away with a grand prize. One of those prizes has two wheels, while the other has four. The two grand prize winners will choose between a 2014 Cadillac CTS Premium and a 2014 Indian Chief Classic. So you either wind up with a bruiser of a bike, or a re-sculpted American luxury sedan that’s better than ever.

The game is the same here, which means you have to go to the eBay Motors site and sign up for the Garage section. Once there, upload some photos of your own ride and you’ll be entered to win. If you already have an account, just upload some more photos for entries into the contest.

The odds aren’t as insane as trying to win Mega Millions*, and it’s pretty easy to upload additional photos for more entries. So head on over and try to win one of these two machines before the contest ends on April 11th. Besides the grand prizes, eBay will also dole out a bunch of $100 gift cards throughout the contest.

[Disclaimer: We teamed up with eBay to bring you information on this contest, which means we’re getting paid to share the message. We’d only do this with stuff we deem cool… and the chance to win a Cadillac CTS or a brand new Indian fit that bill.]

Project Civic Si(gh) has NEW LIFE!
…at the hands of some students

2000 Honda Civic Si(gh)

It’s finally getting some love…

My 2000 Honda Civic Si has been sitting for a bit, collecting dust, dirt, and sadness. The battery is dead even though it’s a relatively new Optima unit, and the passenger side window has stopped working. The face is still bruised up, and the passenger side airbag still sits flapping in the cabin.

Regardless, when I do drive the Civic I have a massive smile on my face. It’s still such a joy to drive, even amongst the variable press car rotation specimens I have occupying my official parking spot (in fact, you can see the latest machine somewhere in that lede photo).

This Honda deserves some attention, and now it’s going to get it. Read on to find out what’s in store.

Hoon Tales: This olelongrooffan’s New Gig


So, recently, this olelongrooffan popped in a post here in the Hooniverse showcasing my new longroof. One of our fellow Hoons questioned if this olelongrooffan had taken yet another new job? Well my fellow Hoons, the answer to that question is, without hesitation, a resounding Yes. Now as this olelongrooffan had been cruising around the Sunshine State in my XBenz for just six months, what was it that made this olelongrooffan decide to, once again, upend my career? Well, sometimes it seems that my life has been a series of “It seemed like a good idea at the time” decisions. But ya know what my fellow Hoons? It just seems to work for me.
