    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 […]

    The Grand Tour heads into the freezing North for A Scandi Flick

    /

    The Grand Tour returns this September with a pretty darn perfectly titled adventure called A Scandi Flick. In the latest trip, Richard Hammond, James May, and Jeremy Clarkson are tasked with trials while staying up in the Arctic Circle. 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 […]

    2022 Audi A8 L Review

    /

    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, […]

    What was your news for the week?

    Funny how things work. Last week there was so much stuff to cover with Monterey Car Week going on that I had no time to cover anything I wanted to. And now this week there’s so little to cover that I don’t have the energy to try and write things about them. I started a […]

    2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve l Review

    It was a Wednesday afternoon, and for some reason I just had a sudden “I need to go home” feeling. In this case, it was an unexplainable pull to go visit my parents a few hours away. Luckily Jeep had dropped off the top trim Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve. With my on-loan conveyance ready […]

    The Super73-Z Miami Electric Bike Ride Review

    /

    The Super73-Z Miami is the evolution of the brand’s entry-level electric bike. It is an improvement over the original Z1 based on feedback from Super73 customers. You have more power, a removable battery, and a greater range. And it starts at just under $2,000. I still prefer the more expensive RX lineup of bikes. But […]

    Automotive Touch-Up Paint is proof that sometimes the simple fixes are so satisfying

    My Montero has been working hard for most of its life. At least I assume as much since it’s a vehicle designed to go… well, anywhere. And I’m now taking it easy on the thing, even if it shows 326,000 miles on its odometer. Still, I’d like it to look good, which occasionally means addressing […]

    2022 Acura TLX Type S Review: The Most Underrated Comeback Kid

    When you think of a luxury sports sedan, something German probably comes to mind. Rightfully so, the big three German luxury brands have been making the de-facto segment leaders for decades. In the 1990s and early 2000s, Acura and Lexus woke the German OEMs up and opened them up to serious competition with strong offerings […]

    Hooniverse Asks: Why do we buy these old cars?

    Do you ever think it would be nice to have a modern car to use on a daily basis? Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to say goodbye to my car from 1991, my car from 1986, and the car from 1984 that hasn’t had an engine in (let me check my notes) […]
