    Now, if I could still play an instrument off the cuff, I’m pretty sure this is how it would feel to play a song you’ve played hundreds of times. It’s a car spotting post on Hooniverse! These felt great to write way back in the day when I used to stroll small town streets, snap […]

    After reading Kamil’s V.I.S.I.T., or Vehicles I See In Traffic post featuring his recent Peugeot spotting, I have been a little more aware when driving around my local area keeping an eye out for something V.I.S.I.T. worthy. I want to share some Aussie car culture. So I thought it would be worth posting this photo of […]

    Let’s bring back this oldie – V.I.S.I.T., or Vehicles I See In Traffic. If that sounds familiar it’s because there is a Facebook group with the same name, which was named after this series of Hooniverse posts. The most hilarious thing is that I am persona non grata in that group after I said that […]

    I have about a dozen friends who send me pictures of interesting cars they on the road. Some are snoozers and some are mildly interesting. And then there are some really special. I would consider this right-hand-drive two-door Land Cruiser 70-series to fit into the really special category.  Over the last few years the popularity […]

    The annual Topsfield Fair is America’s oldest fair. This year it celebrated its 100th anniversary. There were crappy rides, fatty and sugary foods, interesting shows, and cheap prizes. There was also the biggest pumpkin, livestock, horses, and human cannonball guy. All typical fair stuff. Because I have kids I have to endure this misery every […]

    This summer’s trip took me to Rome and Tuscany. For those that don’t know that is in Italy, where the cities are old and everything is pretty. For just one day I ditched my family and took a trip to Bologna. For those that don’t know, Bologna is famous for their pastas and meats, which […]

    The ‘Pike’ cars from Nissan around the end of the 1980s, were great – there can’t be much doubt if their continuing desirability is any indication. Indeed, the Figaro, S-Cargo and Be-1 were smash hits, and the Figaro in particular has become an inevitable sight on the ‘classic car’ circuit – it offered something approximating […]

    Bournemouth, on England’s South coast, is kind of a genteel place. It’s a seaside resort that packs in all the traditional appeal of such places – scrupulously clean sandy beaches, long, sweeping promenades and spindly, wave-bashed piers. Although, like many similar towns, its fortunes have been mixed ever since the end of Victoria’s reign, it’s […]

    This is the second submission from long time reader Oliver Klose, a.k.a. Sjalabais. This summer he vacationed in Kyrgyzstan, which I think is the Bora Bora of central Asia. He submitted two articles, this first one of driving in Kyrgyzstan and this second one on the cars that he saw there. Enjoy. -KK Central Asia has an interesting […]

    I had reason to visit our local out-of-town retail park on Saturday, and the big parking lot at its core is usually home to at least something worthy of note. I was sorely disappointed at first, and my camera remained firmly enpocketed. However, when I emerged from the store and strolled back to my car, […]
