Hooniverse Asks: What should a modern truck have and look like?

2022 toyota tundra trd pro

I’m in San Antonio, Texas this week and I just drove the new 2022 Toyota Tundra. I can’t yet talk about how it drives. But it does make me wonder what buyers are looking for in this space. I’m curious what they want both in terms of powertrain options, interior gadgetry, and overall exterior styling. […]

Hooniverse Asks: What is a part of your vehicle you know the least about?

There are some parts of your car or truck that you know everything about. You are the one who installed that part or refurbished that area or rebuilt that entire section. But there has to be a part or section of which you know a whole lot less. What is that part? Do you fully […]

This 1987 Buick GNX is a $215,000 car per BAT buyers

It’s easy to make jokes about the auction prices paid on Bring-A-Trailer. Low-hanging fruit, really. But this one feels particularly extra bonkers. What you see above is an absolutely wonderful example of the Buick GNX. Per the listing, Buick cranked out just 547 examples and this one is #255. On top of that, it’s in […]

HA: Has a purchase you’ve considered been swayed by online opinion?

You might reach out to someone, or a like-minded group, and ask for car-buying advice. If they collectively give you an answer you weren’t expecting, do you consider that answer? Or do you simply seek out more validation for the purchase you’ve already made in your mind? It’s a question resulting from answers I often […]

There’s always somebody quicker…

This video comes from a Performance Data Recorder in a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Per the video description, this car produces 800 wheel horsepower. And you can see in the video that it runs from 0-60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds. That’s incredibly quick. But as you can see, it’s not quick enough… […]

This Pajero Evo has a supercharged LT under its hood

Pajero Evo V8

I absolutely love the Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution. It’s a wicked factory homologation special built to allow Mitsubishi the ability to run its race trucks in the T2 class at the Dakar Rally. These are capable, reliable, well-built machines. But you can always use more power right? Of course! Which is why one owner/builder decided to […]
