Review: Infiniti Q50S Red Sport 400

infiniti Q50s

Mention Maserati to people who aren’t enthusiasts and they will oh and ah that thing to infinity. But I don’t really understand Maseratis. Sure, they are great-looking cars, but all the Maserati sedans look kind of alike to me. They are also notoriously unreliable and very expensive to maintain and repair. Let us not even discuss their depreciation. Personally, every time I see […]

My Bronco is Finally Scheduled for Production

bronco scheduled

It took 433 days from my initial reservation on July 14th, 2020, but Ford bronco is finally scheduled my Bronco for production. On September 20th, 2021, Ford has sent me the above email, confirming a November 15th, 2021 production date. While I am super excited, I won’t believe it until the vehicle shows up at […]

Traffic Rotaries and Roundabouts are two different things

runabout rotary

Casually scanning my social media stream and I came across a tweet from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation that blew my mind. It turns out that next week is #RoundaboutsWeek (who didn’t know this?) and MassDOT would like clear some things up. One of those is that traffic Roundabouts and Rotaries are two different things. […]

Hyundai’s Ioniq 5 EV test mule totally blends into Boston traffic

hyundai ioniq 5 test mule

Why? Why are automakers using these ridiculous camos to cover-up their test mules? I understand that they want to hide the vehicle’s lines and final production and market-specific details, but why the camo? Wouldn’t covering up those details in a plain wrap work nearly as well? But does it even make sense to use the […]

BFGoodrich launches Trail-Terrain T/A – K02 for smaller cars

Trail-Terrain T/A

We love the BFGoodrich K02 All-Terrain tires here at Hooniverse. Jeff has them on his Montero, I have them on my 4Runner, Josh has the on his Golf Alltrack (!), and Chris had them on his Land Cruiser. But the issue with the KO2s is that they are all-terrain light truck (LT) tires. They tend […]

Project Cars – When It’s Time to Let Go

Most of us car idiots are on constant search for cool project cars. For many of us it is a way of coping with undiagnosed ADHD or perhaps it is it a form of therapy we don’t know we need. For others, it is an escape from a stressful world into an environment that they […]

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 doesn’t understand compromises

wrangler rubicon 392

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392. I came here to tell you that the 6.4-liter V8 engine is too big and too heavy for the Wrangler. I came to say that having 470-horsepower is just dumb in a vehicle that’s designed to conquer Moab. I expected to tell you that high center of gravity and […]

Ford finally explains Bronco hardtop and vehicle order issues

Ford has sent a five-page letter to its dealers about the mess that has become the Ford Bronco. It is a well-written letter and if you have a vehicle on order it is really worth your time. They address the hardtop issues (spoiler: in needs replacement) and general order issues. Ford continues to promise to […]

Craigslist: Bitchin’ ’62 Power Wagon

A few months ago I spotted this Power Wagon and was immediately floored by its awesomeness. It’s so perfectly imperfect. It’s beat without being crap. It’s cared for but not loved. It’s used but not abused. It’s what every new truck wants to be when it’s retired. And now I spotted it again, on Craigslist. […]

Hooniverse Asks: Will Personal Luxury Coupes make a comeback?

Watching the new Grand Tour episode, the Lochdown, last night I instantly fell in love with the Lincoln that Jeremy Clarkson was driving. That Mark V coupe looked just so, so right to me. I instantly imagined myself driving a slightly restomoded version of it cross-country. I’d keep the modifications light, to ones that increase […]
