    Would you like to sport about in this 1975 AMC Hornet?

    /

    It’s no Gucci Sportabout, but this 1975 AMC Hornet looks like it would be fun to try and save. Especially since it’s ripe for some manner of engine swap that brings power and fun way up. At one point, AMC was popping the 360 V8 in the Hornet, but that’s not what this particular machine […]

It started back in April when Toyota debuted the all-new Toyota Corolla GR at Round 1: Formula Drift Long Beach. That’s […]

    Watch: This Lego car suspension test rig is entertainingly genius

    I’ve built a few things in Lego here and there. The last one, which sits on a shelf in my garage, is the Technic Land Rover Defender. That one has working suspension, four high and low, steering, a working engine, and much more. It would be a blast to have a spot to test out […]

    The Hoonigan Media Machine is back at it, and this time HHIC Ken Block is back at the wheel.

    Encyclopedia Hoonatica: This Volvo power steering pump is amazing

    /

    Here’s something new I learned this morning… the electric power steering pump out of certain Volvo models is the perfect addition to a project car.

    Hooniverse Asks: Fastbacks are too expensive, so which old Ford Mustang would you buy?

    There are differences between the years. Sellers have a range of quality levels on offer. And a whole lot of cars clearly came packing six-cylinder power backed up by an automatic gearbox.
