Weekend Edition Quick Hit – An Obscure Muscle Car that is currently on Craigslist; A 1970 Chrysler 300 H…

1970 CHRYSLER 300 HURST 2DR HARDTOP - Google Chrome 4132014 30606 PM.bmp

Our fans seem to like the Obscure Muscle Car Garage Posts that appear each and every Friday, and look what I found currently for sale on Craigslist… This is one of less than 500 1970 Chrysler 300 H Coupes produced (though the listing has stated that only 385 were built) and this one is a Barn Find. I’ll get to the price later, but I have to ask this: Desirable or not?

Weekend Decision Time 2 – A ’73 Ford Wagon, or a ’64 Chrysler Newport for $2K or so…

Recently Updated55

So, you are a West Coast Hipster with a great career path somewhere encompassing advanced technology but you also embrace the things from the past. You may have the latest electronic devices on you and in your home, but you would rather be driving a 40 year old vehicle (or older), mostly because you admire how things were once made. Our own co-founder is the very essence of this trend, possessing advanced degrees, working in the latest tech field, yet drives very old cars. If you want to be like Tim, and happen to live near Seattle or The Bay Area of California, here are two vehicles that are right up your alley. It’s time to get your Hipster On…

Weekend Decision Time – A Brown ’49 DeSoto or A Yellow ’53 Nash

Recently Updated54

Well, it looks like I have been Facebook Hunting again to bring you featured cars for the weekend, and here is a pair of early 50′s iron for your consideration. I found the DeSoto on the Brown Car Appreciation Society Facebook Page, and the Nash was found at the Yellow Car Appreciation Society. Both are exceptional examples of the breed, though the owner of the Nash could use some lessons in how to photograph their pride and joy. So which one speaks to you?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A Unicorn of a Wagon; A 2002 Passat W8 Manual Wagon on Craigslist…

Fullscreen capture 4122014 65811 PM.bmp

We here on Hooniverse seem to go crazy for Wagons, and when one very rare beast comes up for sale, chances are that we will write about it. This my friends is what the seller describes as a Unicorn… It is a 2002 VW Passat Wagon with a Manual Transmission, one of only about 100 imported into the US. We wrote about these cars before (See Here, and Here) and every time we write about them, we want one (Well, I don’t but everyone else does)… How about you?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1975 Stutz Blackhawk VI that once belonged to Arnold Palmer’s Wife…

Fullscreen capture 4112014 81841 PM.bmp

Welcome to a belated Hooniverse Weekend, and the only reason this is so late is because of the very heavy workload I seem to be under lately. I had to report to the office, and didn’t have any time to do a proper weekend of posting until now, so it will be a weekend of Quick Hits that I find around the web, like this gem. This is a Stuts Blackhawk VI that was once owned by the wife of Arnold Palmer. Does that make it desirable, or quite the opposite?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk; Why not capture your own Obscure Muscle Car!

Fullscreen capture 462014 115714 AM.bmp

I hope you are enjoying the Weekend Edition Quick Hits, and look what is next… This is a 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk, a vehicle that I just recently highlighted as an Obscure Muscle Car. This is the one and only year that a Studebaker was offered with a Packard Powerplant, and with the bespoke Packard Ultramatic Transmission. So, could you see yourself owning such an iconic Studebaker?

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1973 Jeep Wagoneer That’s Too Cheap To Pass Up!

1973 Jeep Wagoneer PRICE REDUCED - Google Chrome 462014 113234 AM.bmp

Pow, here is another Weekend Edition Quick Hit, and this time I found a Jeep Wagoneer that is available in the Denver area. This was a posting over at the Wagons HO! Facebook Page, and we all seem to love anything that is connected with either Wagons, or Wagoneers. So, here is your chance to grab one…

Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A Badass 1967 Chevrolet Nova on Craigslist

Fullscreen capture 462014 110912 AM.bmp

This is a new feature for me, and I’m calling it the Weekend Edition Quick Hit. This is where I find something interesting, post it here in the ‘Verse with little to no additional commentary, and ask our fans to discuss. I found this one over at the Black Steelies, White Letters, and the Almighty Dog Dish Facebook Page, and there is nothing I can add to that…

Weekend Edition – Three Posh 70′s Cars that are not necessarily thought of as Posh…

Recently Updated52

I know what you are thinking… Have I gone off the deep end in describing these three vehicles as posh? Well, you really don’t think of a 1970 Oldsmobile Toronado, or a 1977 Plymouth Gran Fury as Posh, and you certainly think the 1975 Dodge Dart is anything but Posh… but let me explain. The Toronado shares its chassis with the very Posh Cadillac Eldorado, and the very next year (1971) the Toronado actually turns into an Oldsmobile version of that Cadillac. The Plymouth actually is a “Gran Fury Brougham” complete with vinyl top, velour interior, Air Conditioning, and most importantly, size… The Dodge is one of those “Special Edition” versions to compete with the Ford Granada, introduced that year. So, are they Posh enough?

Weekend Edition – Three Lustworthy Sports Cars Direct from The Blue Car Appreciation Society

Recently Updated51

OK, so I have been trolling around the Facebook Groups again, but I think you will find it worthwhile this time. Here are three (mostly) desirable sports cars, all dressed in shades of blue. They include a 1970.5 Pontiac Trans Am, a 1975 Mercedes Benz 450 SL, and a 2000 Acura NSX-T. It is hard to imagine that the Acura is 14 years old, while the others are considerably older. So, which one steals your heart?
