    Always on the quest for new and exciting experiences, my wife and I have just got into wearing neoprene and playing with rubber. With designs on seeing familiar things from a unique and dangerous perspective, we’ve taken up kayaking. I’ve never previously been much involved in watersports – in the kind of aquatic pursuits I…

      A Postman came a-knockin’ one summer day, and he brought with him a box with much bountiful content, sent from far overseas. Florida, to be precise. But what could be in a package from FLA that I could possibly want? Well, a glance overhead at the gathered stormclouds and a rapidly blurring horizon sowed…

    With Nicola away for the weekend, having finished the vacuuming, cleaned out the rabbit, removed (most of) the weeds from the driveway and done my fare share of tidying, I can reward myself with a lengthy stroll around the dark, dank tunnels in which The Carchive has been crammed. There’s a strange smell down there,…

    “Saloon, hatchback- or simply the best of both worlds?” Yeah; that was it. The entire premise of the Daihatsu Applause was that it looked like a sedan but was actually a hatchback. And that’s it. Thanks for reading. See you next time.

    Twenty or so years ago I made my first journey to “Big” school, and that trip was made on the very bus you see as the lede image to this feature. While gathering information and pictures for an upcoming article that I bet you simply can’t wait to read, I found myself able to piece…

      For a short while, one unseasonably hot thursday, I was the coolest man in the entire world, and my grin made me look like a Canadian on South Park. Now, I’m not a cool person, at all. Even my knees have an outmoded, unfashionable quality to them. But coolness is sometimes a mindset, and…

    Those of you who call Southern California home, know that we have some wicked cool roads on which we may pretend to some kind of driving hero. However, one of those roads – in fact one of the best if you happen to be of the sport-bike riding persuasion- has been closed now for nigh…

    This olelongrooffan doesn’t often offer a suggestion to check out one blog over the other. There are a ton of great ones out there. But I do have this to say about that. The Roadwork blog, as noted in the sidebar here in the Hooniverse, is definitely a must read. Excellent writing as well as…

    (Editors Note: This is another submission by our good friend across the pond, Chris Haining, aka Rust-MyEnemy. He described his experiences with amphibious vehicles while at University. It’s a great read, and a great Hooniverse Motorboat Monday Piece.) Seals are incredible animals. Their beguilingly innocent faces with those teary, doe-eyes belie their astonishing grace and…
