    …or more accurately, that’s how we would roll if we had $230,000 to drop on a Roller. Hemmings inaccurately titles this the “Find of the Day”. More like find of the millenium. Unfortunately, those cruel elitist bastards only saw fit to grant us one picture of this 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that ran in […]

    So…uh…looks like we might be onto something here. First off, in case it’s not obvious, this thing kinda took off a little faster than anticipated. It appears there was some pent-up demand, or something. We’re still tweaking all kinds of site mechanics as we figure them out. If you see something wrong/buggy/whatever with the site, […]

    As we all know, Americans don’t buy wagons. They don’t buy manual transmissions. They tend not to buy new or odd engine configurations and they tend not to pay much for Volkswagens. With that in mind, this W8 4Motion Passat Wagon with a six-speed manual shouldn’t even exist.

    Jeep’s civilian Gladiator pickups had one major drawback: they weren’t overtly butch enough. Also: grossly overpowered. Enter the M715…

    What if we told you you could get your hands on an Audi RS6 for $14,900? That’s 444hp out of a twin-turbo V8 with only 20k miles on it. What’s the catch? The catch comes in what they don’t tell you.

    So far, we’ve kept it low-end when it comes to recommending vehicles. While the $1500 928 might make a great commuter car for you, it’s important you put the rest of the family in something practical and safe. We’re big believers in active safety: giving a skilled driver the necessary tools to stay in control […]

    Maybe the 928 is a little too harsh for your tastes. Maybe you’re looking for smooth. Nothing oozes smoothness more than a 12 cylinder Jaaaag. At $117/cylinder, you can afford plenty of weekends in the countryside with your wife or girlfriend (or both!). [Update: now it’s down to $1200 ($100/cylinder!) and the price is still […]

  • $1500 928, You have no excuse not to

    Let’s get something straight: I don’t even like the 928. For whatever reason, it does nothing for me. The styling is what real auto reviewers might call polarizing (I call it lame). That said, there are some who find it fantastic. In fairness, a well-sorted chassis and 4.5 liter German V8 coupled to a 5-speed […]

    Malcom Bricklin thought he could do it better, that he could predict the future by inventing it himself. The SV-1 (SV = Safety Vehicle) looks like it’s from 1980, a full six years ahead of its actual launch. The acrylic-bonded-to-fiberglass construction was ahead of its time, as were the integrated roll cage and 5-mph bumpers. […]

    Hooniverse intends to be the dumping ground for everything that’s not going to generate enough traffic at sites where they care about such things. Posts will never be optimized to maximize search results. Word count is irrelevant. Hooniverse does not cover Automotive News in the traditional sense. Don’t send us press releases. We won’t write […]
