    Last year marked ten straight years of crowning some crap-heap amazing machine with the title of Hooniverse Car of the Year. In fact, we topped all of that off with a Hooniverse Car of the Decade as well. This year though… is different. The world has spiraled for 2020. Best laid plans were put to pasture. […]

    The votes are in, and there’s a winner. In our first-ever Hooniverse Car of the Decade vote, the winning margin lands with one truly wild machine. What started as a random idea in the head of one Jeff SpeedyCop Bloch turned into a street-legal “car’ comprised of a Cessna fuselage set atop the chassis of […]

    We started this silly site ten years ago. In that time, we’ve covered a ton of topi- okay I can’t finish that sentence. It’s been mostly Craigslist finds, LeMons racing, and the occasional new car review mixed in. But each year, we band together to shine a light on a beacon of Hooniversal wonder. That’s […]

    We’ve been running this vehicular asylum for some time now. Each year, when December rolls around, we offer up a handful of vehicles on which you can vote. The goal is to crown one winner as the Hooniverse Car of the Year. We pick the nominees. You decide on the top dog. This year, we’re […]

    Not a car. Once again our own Tanshanomi has worked over your hearts with a two-wheel entry. He did it in the past with that BMW bike, and now he’s done it again. This time with a very cool build from Ryan Frankenberg. The Fat Hippo is your 2018 Hooniverse Car of the Year. It’s […]

    Earlier this year I drove Matt Farah’s Lexus LS 400. At the time it had 981,199 miles on the odometer. That is a lot of miles for any vehicle. To my surprise the big Japanese sedan drove rather smoothly. It drove like a nice old car in need of some TLC. I sure as hack […]

    Matt Farah had a revelation after driving Leh Keen’s original Porsche 911 Safari build in the woods of North Carolina.  In it he found a vehicle that was fun to drive. It had style. And if it could handle Carolina fire roads, it would handle Southern California’s bad roads with zero issues. Matt often said that […]

    Ryan Frankenberg is a high-end cabinetmaker from Idaho who has become one of my heroes because of his wondrous scrap-yard build, The Fat Hippo. The Hippo is a remarkably functional trail bike that Ryan fabricated almost entirely from salvaged parts and raw metal stock. He regularly works to clear ORV trails on the public lands […]
