Last Call: So I’ve done a thing… Vol.5

I've been looking at every listing near me for months now. Time tricks the brain into action. And that's what happened yesterday. There was a lovely old XJ I saw for sale finished in brilliant British Racing Green. I emailed the seller, refreshed the ad, and to my dismay the ...

Marvelous-ish Malaise on a Boston Movie Set

Boston is one of the oldest American cities. Its varying architecture, almost random at times, can be easily modified to look like many other North American cities. This, along with four real seasons, easy access, nearby ocean and mountains, make this city a good one to make movies. In the ...

The simple tent, a roof-top tent, van life, or a trailer; which do you prefer?

This past week, my daughter had time off from Kindergarten. Tag-teaming this many days off, my wife handled the first part of the week and I jumped in towards the latter part. To occupy some of that time, Sloane and I stuffed the Montero with camping gear and set off ...

2021 Lexus RC-F Fuji Speedway Edition – Sports Car or Grand Tourer?

The Lexus RC-F exists in a space somewhere between a sports car and a grand tourer, and the Fuji Speedway Edition attempts to push the needle closer to the sports car side of the equation. It's a limited-edition machine with polarizing style that produces tremendous noise. Is it worth $100k? ...

Hooniverse Asks: What’s a car-themed program with which you have issues?

Let's bring back this oldie - V.I.S.I.T., or Vehicles I See In Traffic. If that sounds familiar it's because there is a Facebook group with the same name, which was named after this series of Hooniverse posts. The most hilarious thing is that I am persona non grata in that ...
