Last Call: What about the Olympics?

Last Call: What about the Olympics?

We all know that the Coronavirus is postponing basically every event on Earth but what about the Olympics? The games have only been canceled because of WWI and WWII in the past so a cancelation because of an epidemic would be a first for the history books. In the post, ...

I’m Going to Dive Into iRacing Now

The funny thing here is that I actually had a set of pedals and a wheel from Fanatec. That was years ago though. The set is gone and tech has improved since then anyway. Why do I care now though, you ask? Because the global pandemic has inspired more people ...

Hooniverse Lada Lemons Racer: Restarting a Stalled Project

The Lada showed at my friend's now closed shop on an open car carrier a few years ago. It didn't look like anything else; it was a tiny shell of a red car, on small wheels, with a golden roll cage inside. Dusty, banged up and beat up, it was ...

How’s Tony Doing? Let’s Check in on My 1991 Mitsubishi Montero

Automotive ADD is setting in, but only just. It's easy to have your head on a Craigslist swivel if you shop amongst the cheaper vehicles out there. Still, I have zero plans of selling my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero anytime soon. In fact, I'm still in love with the thing. Does ...

Hooniverse Asks: Are you getting any car maintenance done right now?

Now is the time to wrench on your project cars. Or so it would seem. I feel like I have less time at the moment and that's because there's a four-year-old kid running around here and my wife and I are trying to keep her occupied. Not with a wave of ...

Selling a car on Bring-a-Trailer, part 2 – Hire a photographer

When automakers advertise cars, they don't really advertise cars. They advertise dreams. You see commercials with off-roaders climbing the tallest of mountains and barreling through a desert. You see muscle cars with clouds of tire smoke behind them and sports cars drifting effortlessly through the city. For people buying cars ...

Last Call: Rally Finland is the best location in the WRC

Last Call: Rally Finland is the best location in the WRC

When you think of rally, Finland is probably one of the first places you imagine. Whether it be during the classic group B era or modern-day, it has always been the best in my opinion. There's something about the scenery that makes the cars flying through the air seem so ...

The time I valeted an ’85 Ferrari 308

As a valet, you get some interesting cars that come through. Some of them are cool because they're expensive and others are cool because you never really see them on the road. I find the latter more exciting personally and that is why this experience was so memorable for me ...

The Subaru WRX STI S209: Is it Worth It?

The Subaru WRX STI S209: Is it Worth It?

This is a Subaru WRX STI, and it costs $64,000. That's if you can find one without a dealer markup (which, for the record, you can). But why would anyone spend that much on an STI? Because it's a limited-edition version, and it's the best STI I've ever driven. This ...

Is this the coolest car for sale at Duncan Imports right now?

One of these days, I need to get over to Duncan Imports to see the amazing collection of JDM cars on display. The dealership is located in Virginia and has hundreds of Japanese vehicles on sale (as well as a handful of non-JDM offerings). There are so many to choose from, ...

Hooniverse Asks: What’s your preferred form of automotive isolation?

Someone of you will head out on dirtbikes. Others might have a side-by-side stowed away. Most of you will prefer a car or truck. But I think all of you have some form of self-isolation method you prefer when it comes to a vehicle. Right now, I'm daydreaming of a ride ...

Everything is cancelled in motorsports for the next few months so the racing community has turned to the sims to get their fix. Today in particular was supposed to be the 12 Hours of Sebring until that got pushed back to November. Fortunately, there's no global pandemic in iRacing so ...

Last Call: Fast 9 has been delayed

So the latest movie in the Fast series has now been pushed back almost an entire year. I was honestly looking forward to seeing this one since Han will be back but I, as I'm sure many will agree, are getting pretty tired of the series. It's more about guns ...

Last Call: Are you excited about the next-generation Nissan Z?

The 370z now over a decade old. It's really due for an update. You don't see them around as much and I find that sad because I feel like it's still a good car. You can get one for pretty cheap too if you're buying it used. There could finally ...
