I Don’t Need It But I Want It: 1990 Hino Bus Edition

Located in Virgina, Japanese Classics is a goldmine of JDM vehicles. They range from extremely cool and rare (in our market) to relatively sedate JDM versions of vehicles we already get. There’s a lot I’d love to own from them, but for some reason, it’s this beast that caught my eye today; a 1990 Hino […]

Hooniverse Podcast: Episode 305 – Zee Oh Six!

There’s a bit of an echo in this one, but that doesn’t stop us for talking all about the new Corvette Z06 and it’s insane-o 5.5-liter V8. That would be the one making 670 horsepower in naturally aspirated, flat-plane-crank style, while revving up to an 8,600 rpm redline. There are other things to talk about, […]

I’m a bit overdue on an update on these two. Let’s fix that, and also break the oddly Ford-heavy news cycle at the moment. The Jag My 1986 Jaguar XJ6 is running …well, ish. The engine makes decent power and it’s a great highway cruiser of a machine. Oddly though, the other night I was […]

All-Electric Ford F-100 shows off new EV Crate Motor

You know we love a good F100 around here. This particular one is a 1978 F-100 that’s been transformed to highlight a brand-new crate motor from the Blue Oval brand.

I’m not talking about a homologation special here. I want to know about actual factory-backed race cars that you wish you could purchase.

1975 dodge d100 for sale

Everyone needs to own a pickup truck at least once in their life. And here’s a pretty excellent example of one. This is a 1975 Dodge D100 Adventurer. That means it was an ever-so-slightly fancier trim compared to the base truck, yet not as sporty as some of the awesome variations of the D-Series at […]

We’ve been following this build for a while now because it’s pretty damn excellent. Here’s a brief recap though… Formula Drift driver Ryan Tuerck is building out a mega Toyota Supra.

There are a handful of good weekend car shows near me. The first Sunday of each month sees a show called Sunday Steele playout. It’s a small but growing gathering of machinery with a slight bent towards more European offerings. You have the standard mega Cars and Coffee show in San Clemente, which takes place […]
