The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 48 – The Honeymooners


The dorky car guys on the block are back with a brand new episode. Put your hands together for the Cammed and Tubbed Podcast! We’re closing in on 50 episodes of this show, and it’s still just as fun as when we started. There’s just something so entertaining about sitting around for an hour or so every week with some friends talkin’ ’bout cars. Sometimes life gets so hectic, you don’t get the opportunity to do that very often, so we made it a podcast.

This episode’s topics include: “What’s On Your Desk”, “What’cha drinkin”, the new Smart Car, that wrecked BMW M1 that was floating around this week, Jason being on the Hoon 100, “putting the wood down”, Cam’s Dad’s Infiniti, my new Michelins, the Porsche 912 Registry, and our shoutouts for the week. Enjoy!

Podcast: Episode 100 – Audio Issues! [w/guest AJ Gordon]


So it wouldn’t be a Hooniverse podcast without the potential for audio issues… and that’s what you get to celebrate episode 100!

Our guest this week is AJ Gordon who is the Content & Social Media Manager for the Petersen Museum. He’s also the host of the great Car Stories podcast, which has tons of guests. Our chatter this week revolves around what we’ve done over the past 100 episodes, the new Paul Newman biopic, and also what’s going on with HoonTruck and Blake’s Miata.

Additionally, we dive into what it’s like to work at the Petersen and focus on a crowd-funding project the museum is taking on. It’s to revive a one-of-17 Davis Divan. If you’re interested in learning more and possibly helping out, check out their IndieGoGo page.

When in Doubt, Camp Out: A First-Timer’s View of the 12 Hours of Sebring

Number 4 Corvette C7.R at sunset

The folks who were there just to cover the final race were probably there and gone within 24 hours, but we camped out early to check out the full experience and to place ourselves within the non-stop 24-hour party that is the 12 Hours of Sebring. For me, it would be a first; three days of wonderful exhaust sounds, shooting photos, eating salty camping food, and sweating, out in the Florida heat, to bring you the sights and experiences of the 12 Hours of Sebring from Sebring, Florida. … Continue Reading

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06: Bang for the buck… redefined

YouTube Preview Image

Remember when the rest of the world used to make fun of the Corvette? It wasn’t completely warranted, yet there were some criticisms that both stuck and stung. Those days were officially pushed into the past when the new C7 Corvette arrived.

The 2015 Corvette Z06, however, takes those old notions, douses them in high-octane fuel, and sets them ablaze. That’s because it just might be the best bang for the buck performance machine on the planet.

Hell it might be one of the best performance machines on the planet *period*

[DisclaimerChevrolet threw us the keys to the Z06 and let us borrow it for a weekend. Fuel was used to generate noise, tire smoke, and a burning desire to own a new Z06.]

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 47 – Grown Men Crying


I want to begin by thanking everyone who gave our little podcast a chance and listened last week. I really hope you stick around, as we’ve got some fun stuff to talk about every single week. We’re just a few car guys from all around the country that like to hang out together and record it once a week. We mostly talk about car stuff, but it occasionally devolves into discussion about 80s/90s pop-culture, nobody knows why.

This episode’s topics include: “What’s On Your Desk”, Magnus Walker bought a new car, What’s the deal with RWB?, Project Boxster gets some new bits, Project Mazda2 gets some new bits, How awesome was Furious 7 (No Spoilers, sorta), Porsches in the movies, and our shoutouts for the week. Enjoy!

Hooniverse Garage: 1969 Jeep Wagoneer Intake Manifold Fix

YouTube Preview Image

We’re back in the garage again, working on the Wagoneer. It’s well known that Jeeps leak oil, but there’s a spectrum from “marking their territory” to “British Leyland” to “Exxon Valdez”. My Wagoneer was leaking so much down the undercarriage it’d actually blow up the back of the car and accumulate an oil slick on the tailgate after any long drive. Good for rust prevention, bad when parking in friends’ driveways. It leaked from the rear main and the timing cover, but the biggest emitter was the back side of the intake manifold. Time to rectify that…

Podcast: Episode 99 – The Cult of Harbor Freight


Blake, Producer Chris, and myself are joined by Zack Klapman from The Smoking Tire. The chatter this time around centers on the new Furious 7 movie, joining the cult of Harbor Freight, and then what we plan on doing for episode 100. There’s also a bit of light HoonTruck and Miata news.

As a heads up, after episode 100 we’re heading out to the Alibi Room in Los Angeles. We’ll record on Monday the 13th, then head over for a few drinks and some grub around 8pm. If you’re in the area, come say hi and join us!

Exploring the Hooniverse Mountune Focus ST

YouTube Preview Image

Our man Jason Connor typically handles driving duty when it comes to the camera car. What do we use for said vehicle? Why Jason’s own Mountune-modified Focus ST. It’s a car that actually deserves its own video… so that’s what’s happening here. In fact, we’re going to let Jason tell us all about it.

Mr. Connor took a stab at shooting and editing this whole this as well. It’s his first go at it, and we think he did a pretty damn good job for his first go ’round.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 46 – New Podcast Smell


We’re trying something new. Please give a warm welcome to the second podcast to join the Hooniverse Podcast Network. The “other one” is working well for us, so why stop when we’re ahead. Let it ride! For just over two years (and almost 100 episodes), you’ve been hearing the dulcet tones of Mr. Jeff Glucker, Blake Z. Rong, Esq., and the effervescent Chris Hayes. In the world of podcasts, they’re the Ferrari 250GTO, and we’re the Shelby Cobra. They’re a well-oiled purebred machine, and we’re the hodgepodge amalgamation thrown together over a series of too many whiskey and colas on a Tuesday night. So come join Cam (Cameron VanDerHorst), Tub (Bradley Brownell… that’s me), and our third wheel (Jason Connor) for an hour, plus or minus, of mostly car-related conversation.

The Hooniversal Opinion: 2015 New York Auto Show


The New York Auto Show is on this week and it’s given some of the world’s top marquees the chance to reveal some awesome new metal that’s coming our way. As always, I’ll bring you a mostly factual recap of the auto show’s biggest reveals in the Hooniverse News this Friday; but today, we’re not too concerned about the press releases.

Until we have the budget to storm the major auto shows with the entire Hooniverse gang on site, we’re just going to judge them from the comfort of our desks on the other side of the country. The only exception is Kamil, who wandered around the Javits Center on day 1 and provided some of the shots you’re going to see. All other shots are provided by the manufacturers.

But nevertheless, we’ve worked around our limitations to bring you unrivaled coverage any way we can. These are our first impressions, our fully-informed assessments, and our completely unbiased opinions of the cars of the 2015 New York Auto Show.

Nope… couldn’t keep a straight face.
