Hooniverse Asks: Do you have a favorite driving song?

Hooniverse Asks: Do you have a favorite driving song?

Back in college, I'd occasionally have to drive between Rhode Island and my home up near Boston. Towards the end of school, I'd acquired a 1985 Nissan 300ZX. It was the non-turbo version, but it could still just about hit 130 mph. I know this because of one of the ...

Hooniverse Asks: Have you had any “Meet Your Heroes” moments with a car?

This past week has been rather wonderful. Well, specifically wonderful if I focus on what's in my garage and not the world at large. Acura pulled a car of out its museum and drove it down my way. I've spent the last week with a 2001 Acura Integra Type R ...

Last Call: What about a modern Foxbody Mustang?

Last Call: What about a modern Foxbody Mustang?

I stumbled upon this today and after reading everyone's reactions to the Woodie Bronco I want your opinion on this. I'm not too big of a fan personally but I feel like the artist hit a lot of the right elements. The squared body reminds me too much of the ...

2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible – First Drive Review

2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible – First Drive Review

The 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible is a drop-top work of art. Sure, we prefer the coupe version because it's nice having a roof over one's head, but it's hard to argue with the NOISE the Convertible lets in. That noise comes courtesy of a 471-horsepower 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine ...

Last Call: I would snatch this RX-7 in a heartbeat if I could

It's no secret that I am quite the JDM fanboy so when I saw this clean RX-7 run through my Twitter, I had to stop and look. It has a decent list of modifications to it, but the fact that it still looks clean is impressive. The JDM culture is ...

It’s 3:18 p.m. on a Sunday and my son is sitting next to me at the breakfast bar in our kitchen, chopping foods and serving them to strange people and cats. On his tablet. It’s a game. He’s not that weird. But kids are weird. The other day he asked ...

Gadget Review: TechBrands Wireless GPS Speedometer

Gadget Review: TechBrands Wireless GPS Speedometer

With two ongoing motorcycle projects in my garage, I've been reading and thinking about gearing versus vehicle speed a lot lately. With those thoughts comes the keen awareness that old-school mechanical speedometers can be wildly inaccurate, and even many modern OE digital speedometers have a built-in "fudge factor." The proper ...

Last Call: What we really need is a wood paneled Bronco

When I was a kid, like really little, Woodie cars were my favorite. I have no idea why but they were. So for me, wood paneling has a way of bringing that childhood nostalgia back. As you might expect, when I saw this render I instantly fell in love with ...
