Ten Years Later: The real Saab story

If I were to glance at Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, I would understand that I am lacking in many things: stability, financial success, emotional maturity within relationships, a thorough understanding of Maslov’s Hierarchy of Needs. But one thing I do not lack is self-awareness. And in this case, such self-awarenss manifests in this convoluted and […]

Ten Years Later: From B-Rad to Radwood

What you get out of life depends on what you put into it. For ten years the writers, photographers, video folk, and podcasters of Hooniverse have put in a lot of hard work. We’ve invested large percentages of our lives in the site and its readers, for the love of all things automotive and “the […]

Ten Years Later: I still like cars

I joined Hooniverse about a year after it started. I had my own website up to that point and coming to Hooniverse was sort of a merging of the two. Not everyone liked this idea.

Ten Years Later: From carefree to a car seat

Tim and I liked sending each other random listings we found on Craigslist. We met, virtually initially, by way of both commenting silly shit on Jalopnik posts. We became friends and we decided to start a blog. The real genesis for starting Hooniverse was a general unhappiness for the way (then) Jalopnik was being run. […]

Hooniverse Asks: What have you done in the last ten years?

The very first post on this site happened ten years ago to the day. Tim (AKA Mad_Science) opened us up with a discussion about what this place is. It’s changed. It’s evolved. People have come and gone, so have the cars. But our core is still in place. We just love cars, plain and simple. […]
