Mecum Auctions: This RHD 1963 Corvette Z06 is amazing

RHD 1963 Chevy Corvette Z06

This past weekend, I was down in Florida for the 2022 Mecum Auction in Kissimmee. There were some amazing machines on display, but one caught my eye after a second glance. That’s because, at first glance, I simply saw a 1963 split-window Corvette in a nice shade of blue. But it was with my second […]

This VW Touareg V10 TDI has been turned into an off-road beast

For some reason yesterday, the topic of the Touareg V10 TDI popped up in my world. I drove one once years ago, as it was the 2nd press vehicle to which I’d ever been given keys. It made an impact on my brain and I definitely still think about it. I know it wouldn’t be […]

Over on the Hooniverse Podcast, we’ve been talking about dashcams recently. That’s because my podcast co-host Ron Baugh randomly captured an amazing moment of karma. He was driving along in a convoy heading to SEMA when a driver in a car not related to the group chucked a cup of soda out their window towards […]

The Morgan Plus Four CX-T seems stupidly brilliant

Morgan Plus Four CX-T

It’s definitely a trend of the last few years to take a road car and set it up for off-road adventure. People have been doing that for decades, of course, but the idea of “safari-ing” a vehicle has certainly gained in popularity as of late. Even automakers are taking this approach at the factory level. […]
