    The 2024 Ford Mustang is the last of its kind

    /

    Ford has unveiled the 7th-generation Mustang to a crowd of crowd-eating enthusiasts in Detroit this evening. America’s favorite pony car has been with us for nearly 60 years and it’s evolved significantly since then. This breed is the most advanced and most powerful yet (not including Shelby models) and retains two critical pieces of its […]

    2022 BMW M5 Competition: Ultimate Driving Missile

    /

    Nothing says BMW like the M5. Sure, the M3 is the enthusiast choice, but match prestige with driving preciousness and luxury appointments, and the M5 stands on a pedestal all its own. But there was a gap when other cars overtook the BMW as the top-tier choice for speedy executive travel. Has the 2022 BMW […]

    Watch this Hot Wheels Miata become an awesome RC drift car with working headlights!

    It’s fun to sling a Hot Wheels car around the room. Or over your desk. Or down the hall. Pretty much anywhere you want to roll a Hot Wheels is the right place to do so. What if you want to see it move under power, though? Well, if you’re as skilled as TLS Garage, […]

    2022 Volkswagen Tiguan SEL R-Line 4MOTION l Review

    /

    I reviewed my last Volkswagen Tiguan (German pronunciation: “fɔlksˌvaːgŋ̍ ˈtiːɡu̯aːn”) back in November of 2020 and came away with a resounding “I dig it”. Part of the second generation that launched in 2018, the Tiguan was the smallest SUV of the bunch at the time, coming in under the Atlas and Atlas Cross Sport. As […]

    Last December I picked up my new Ford Bronco. The Bronco is going great and I’ll write more about it soon. But I now have a need for a second vehicle. I need to drive one of my two kids to school, while my wife uses the Bronco to drive the other kid around, or […]

    Hooniverse Asks: What car is way more expensive than you thought?

    /

    I spent a week with a Maserati Levante Trofeo. It’s an interesting machine in that it makes fun noises, has strong power, and certainly makes its presence known in that properly Italian way. Even if it’s still a crossover. It’s not a revelatory driving experience or anything like that. And the interior is fine for […]

    Which tiny amazing working engine would you want to build?

    I put together one of those plastic scale model engines a few years back. It was a fun exercise, and I’d love to do it again. Especially if I could find a nice version in metal. The one you see in the video below is particularly amazing because it actually runs. There’s coolant, a radiator, […]

    2023 Toyota Sequoia Platinum l Review

    Second albums are always hard, many a band have fallen flat on their sophomore record. Toyota’s second-generation Sequoia-the-sequel (part deux?) debuted with a strong performance on the album sales charts back in 2008. However, from literally every model year forward sales dropped significantly, the 2021 model only made it to 8,070 driveways across the country. […]

    Watch Larry Kosilla turn a great 1990 Mazda Miata into a perfect one

    The OG Mazda Miata is a legend. It’s an icon. And it’s a damn fun thing to drive. When the car arrived on the floor of the Chicago Auto show in 1990, it opened up many eyes, and the rest is history. Our friend Larry Kosilla of AMMO brand car cleaning products got up close […]

So you can expect to find seriously cold weather mixed with rally car excellence. And the […]

    The 2023 Acura Integra is exactly what it’s supposed to be

    /

    The 2023 Acura Integra is a premium sporty hatchback. It’s priced wonderfully for what it offers, drives well, and has a comfortable interior. And a portion of the Internet will absolutely hate it for not being some sort of high-performance amalgamation of what they imagined it would be. I’m here to tell you that it […]

    Lately I’ve been thinking about the defining factors that drive a new car purchase. Obviously a lot of rather dull factors like cost and practicality come to mind for the majority of buyers. But, there’s more to it than that thankfully. While not every buyer shares our Hooniversal opinion that your purchase should be fun, […]
