Bremach Taos: Rugged, honest UAZ Patriot 4×4 coming to the USA

When it comes to new vehicles, enthusiasts clamor for two things: Cheap sports cars, and honest off-roaders. The former is covered, more so now than in quite a while. The Miata stands strong.

Kamaz Dakar Race Truck

Kamaz Dakar Trucks can do anything

Well, not anything. I don't see them crossing a rickety bridge, but then again, they could just jump it. So yeah, back to anything. Dakar is just around the sand dune and the Kamaz trucks will again be attacking the dunes, rocks, and even some two-track in places. These massive ...

dealer markup on a new Audi RS6 Avant

Last Call: Dealer markups suck, Avant Edition

I am fully aware of how supply and demand work. But I also believe that dealer markups are total bullshit. The automaker sets the price for a vehicle, and you would expect to pay that price for the vehicle. It gets far worse, however, when a dealer takes your deposit ...

Hooniverse Asks: Are you taking on a new project car in 2021?

A new year could bring a new you... or a new thing to you. I know I'm eyeballing a handful of vehicles at the moment, as I think I want something new in my life. No, I am not getting rid of the Montero. Yes, the Wombat is still "about to ...

Last Call: Non-vanity vanity license plate

A good friend of mine recently bought a '66 Jeep CJ-5 Tuxedo Park. Overall, it is in pretty good condition. To be road worthy it really only needed one thing - license plates. Yes, a top and doors would be nice in the winter, in New England, but they are ...

I think I want a tank

We're supposed to get our first substantial amount of winter precipitation tomorrow. Thinking about the white stuff (not Angel Dust) has put me in a wintery-mood and my YouTube searches yielded some frosty results.

C4 Off-Road Corvette

Off-Road Corvette is the best Corvette

I don't think that 2021 will be the respite that so many believe it to be. We've been doing this dumb dance that the next year will be better since 2014... That's like 30 years ago. 2020 hasn't aged well for me. As a result, maybe we all need to ...
