Ten Years Later: Rood boy chimes in

Based on a recommendation from the venerable Murilee Martin, Jeff put me on the Hooniverse roster in 2012. I had a full-time office job, a brand new baby, and a depth of car knowledge rooted entirely in the 24 Hours of Lemons. It was probably not the ideal life place from which to launch writing […]

24 Hours of Lemons Turns 200 (Races) This Weekend!

Look, I’m gonna keep this short, mostly because I’m lazy. The 24 Hours of Lemons is hosting its second consecutive dual-race weekend with Halloween Hooptiefest at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Get Yer Phil 500 (name for the esteemed Murilee Martin) at High Plains Raceway in Colorado. And what’s better than a two-race weekend? They’ll […]

24 Hours of Lemons: Get Ready for an All-Timer Weekend!

[Disclaimer: Eric Rood works for the 24 Hours of Lemons and is a total shill.] The 24 Hours of Lemons has, over the course of 12 years, run nearly 200 races. Until this coming weekend (and the following one), however, Lemons has never run two events on the same weekend. Not only will Lemons be […]

NASCAR tries something new at the Charlotte roval

While it wasn’t pretty or tidy or anything of the sort, NASCAR raced on the Charlotte Motor Speedway “roval.” And guess what? It was completely and totally watchable. Unsurprisingly, the defining moments turned out to be: 1) Half of the Top 10 missing the Turn 1 braking point on a restart, then piling into the […]

24 Hours of Lemons Captain's Toolkit: Be Clueless Like a Lemons Veteran

[Disclaimer: Eric Rood works for the 24 Hours of Lemons and is a total shill.] Getting started in the 24 Hours of Lemons can be difficult, we know that. That’s applicable both to your Lemons car and to what happens when you sign up for the endurance-racing series for $500…only to realize you have no […]

24 Hours of Lemons 2019 Schedule: Races, Rallies, Concours, and Down Under

After 13 years, nobody has yet gotten wise to those idiots from the 24 Hours of Lemons and their inane $500 endurance-racing series. Indeed, Lemons has slipped another annual schedule out to the public. It serves less as a yearly planner for racers (who naturally are terrible at planning) and more of a notice to […]

Malaise Era Press Photo: Mercury Monarch Model or Mannequin?

We’re here to answer all of the big questions here at Hooniverse. And here’s a big one: Is the model that is, uh, “perched” on a 1980 (I think) Mercury Monarch Coupe a real person in an incredibly awkward pose or a mannequin that has been very ungracefully placed in a press photo? Regardless, this Monarch—the […]

Last Call: They Said I Could Be Anything…

…so I became a sailboat. And now I’m at the bottom of Chesapeake Bay. Kids, it’s important never to have ambitions. Last Call indicates the end of the Hooniverse broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

CraigsList: No Bank Account DefCon for a RevCon Hauler?

RevCon is one of many RV companies and while I won’t pretend to know much about Recreational Vehicles, I will say that this very early, very modified Oldsmobile Toronado-based 1973 RevCon on Chicago CraigsList makes an interesting combination.
