  • Name That Part: Arbiter of Style Edition

    /

    Yesterday, Graverobber took over the reigns for Name That Part, and brought us a lever-arm shock absorber from a ’72 MG. That was nice of him. Congratulations to Armand4 for nailing it, and identifying the part so quickly and efficiently. On the other hand, Mr. Robber also brought us a heavily-oiled Sylvester Stallone in a […]

  • Crap, Now We Need to Learn Russian by The End of the Year

    /

    Press play. Just do it. You’ll be treated to what looks like a mash-up of Transformers and Spiderman, but good. And in Russian, with a Volga. Then you’ll want to go here. A tip of the Stoli to Jonny L…no that’s too obvious. We’ll call him J. Lieberman over at Automoblog.

  • What Malaise? 6.6L Hurst/Olds

    /

    We’re all familiar with the typical Craigslist seller whose writing makes us weep for English as a language and whose photography leaves you wondering if they went to extra trouble to add blur and decrease the resolution of the two and a half pathetic pictures which usually contain a pitbull. Sorry ’bout that. Where was […]

  • If at Crash You Don't Succeed, Fail, Fail, Again

    The craziest girl driver ever – Watch more Funny Videos Truth be told, there is no statistical evidence that women are less competent drivers than men. They are, however, genetically predisposed to have driving mishaps while in front of surveillance cameras. This woman goes from bad to worse, to seized motor in under a minute.

  • XJ-S Junior Not Classy Enough? How About an E-Type?

    /

    We realize this isn’t Juniverse, but these were tough to pass up. After seeing the XJ-S Junior, reader Dr. Dangerously tipped us to The Harrington Group, an outfit that sells an assortment of stunning 1/2 scale electric replicas including a Porsche 356, Mercedes-Benz 300SL, E-Type, Flatfender Jeep and a Bugatti Type 35(ish) clone.

  • VW Car-B-Que Puts the Grill in the Back, Where it Belongs

    /

    VW Vortex member Thecleaner likes his VWs watercooled, but still pines for the days when the aircooled cars had their grills in the back. Having come across a clapped-out Cabriolet that was missing its top, he decided to set things right. He initially wanted to convert the car into a roadster but instead added a […]

  • Name That Part: Italian Stallion Edition

    /

    Here’s a chance to show off both your car parts knowledge, and your appreciation of high quality film entertainment. The following picture is a part from a car, and if it were still on that car, 98.2% of you would guess it in a nanosecond. That’s why it was dragged out, naked and alone, so […]

  • Your Next Project Car: Perfectly Safe When It's Stopped Edition

    /

    Listen, the concept here is pretty simple. I have no garage, limited tools, zero storage space, and a Volkswagen. This means I am wholly unable to start on a new project car, and in fact restricted in my ability to work on the project cars I already have. To that end, I am forced to […]

  • 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster

    “Top down, chrome spinnin’…” or in this case, it would be the 19” lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance Bridgestone Potenza tires; 245 in the front and large 275s strapped to the back. The song continues that “you see the boss grinnin’…” and I am doing more than grinnin’. I am behind the wheel of […]

  • Streetwalker: 1971 Datsun 240Z

    /

    There’s a street nearby the palatial Hooniverse HQ that people have been using as a de facto used car lot. They park their cars on the side of the road with for sale signs in the windows, with the hope of catching a buyer’s eye as they speed past at or above the posted 45 […]

  • We Weren't Kidding: 1990 Audi Coupe – $2500

    /

    You thought our clever little line about EscortsForever’s rally gallery giving us Quattro Fever (aka H1-20V) was empty wordsmithing? Think again! One of the benefits of living in LA—aside from the police helicopters and wildfires—is a well-stocked Craigslist. One beautiful black UR-Quattro coming up! [Edit: Nevermind, we’re off our game today we’re merely talking about […]

  • For the Aspiring Young Cad: XJ-S Junior

    /

    We’re known in real life for inflicting random web finds upon our friends. “Where do you find this stuff?!” our friends and family ask. Hence: Hooniverse. Reader Maymar’s beating us at our own game with this one, though. in 1989, Jaguar commissioned the construction of the XJS-Junior, essentially a Power-Wheels with a really fancy interior […]

    Reader EscortsForever has been so kinda as to grace us with a pile of shots from the pre-race parc expose from the Lake Superior Performance Rally. Quoth the photographer: Today is the beginning of the awesome. Between classes, I managed to get out to the parc expose (where the rally drivers show off their cars). […]
