Beauty in High Definition

Commenter VolvoNut sent us a link to some beautiful high-definition footage from the 1940’s. It’s actually what’s called “stock footage”. For those of you living in California, you’ll be well familiar with this concept — after all, you are stock footage. For the rest of the world, allow me to explain; when filmmakers are hacking […]

Absolutely Stunning: 1932 DeSoto Hot Rod

Count on the Saucy Minx herself to drag us back to our roots. This tip comes from the always exotic Murilee Martin, and it comes at just the right time. Enough of this nonsense about new cars. Enough of new Hyundais and Volvos, enough of generic jellybean designs. Let’s get back to basics. And it […]

1974 Fleetwood: Making It Right

Okay, okay, I screwed up. Earlier today, I posted a 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limousine. I failed to track down the discrepancies that were evident in the simplistic description on the dash of “Cadillac Sixty”, and failed to realize that it was, in fact, a Fleetwood instead, chalking the differences up to an aftermarket limousine conversion. […]

On-Board Lap in a Vintage F5000 Racer

We’ve made no secret of our affection for Australia’s V8 Supercar series. Our friends over at Motorsport Retro pointed us towards this video. What happens when you take one of the legends of that series, and dump him into a vintage Formula 5000 race car for a lap? Well, he certainly performs well, but it […]

Quick Shift: Dunlop Decolletage

We’re starting into an election season here in Alberta, or so everyone suspects, and this bus has been making the rounds of  smaller towns, carrying the Wildrose party leader. This is all the more amusing since the Wildrose Alliance is the sort of party that likes to get offended by everything, and though they’ve tried […]

Jason Bright Shows Hooniverse Some Love

We’ve talked before about what a gentleman Jason Bright has been to Hooniverse. He’s spent a great deal of time chatting with us, and has been only too open about giving us some insight to the world of racing.  It would be an understatement to say that we’re grateful; one of the main reasons we […]

Foreign Domestic: 1956 Dodge Regent

Here in the mythical land of Canada, back in the 1950’s, Chrysler of Canada decided that they needed a car all their own to sell in Dodge showrooms that would give them something unique and distinctive. As was so often the case with the Chrysler Corporation, they did not exactly succeed brilliantly.

1954 Rolls-Royce: Conspicuous Absence of Taste

Whenever I do get a chance to sneak back across the fence and put together an article for Hooniverse, I usually try and write about a car I like. I try and restrict my selections to vehicles that are particularly beautiful, or somehow strangely awesome, or have somehow captured my imagination. This particular vehicle has […]

Eight Passengers in Luxurious Awesomeness

There are a lot of options out there if you need to take a bunch of passengers in comfort. Although the trend has very much died down, there are still plenty of minivans on the market that offer eight-passenger seating in something distantly resembling comfort. Seven-passenger vehicles abound, even though virtually none of the people […]

Consequences Be Damned: 1968 Unimog 404S

CaffeineFuelled and I have something of an understanding; we each have a list that we refer to as our “free pass”. It is a list of celebrities who we each consider so attractive that we would not fault the other if we ever found the opportunity, against all odds, to get it on with that […]
