Last Call: Five-Wheel Friday Edition II

I bet the last time I used Five-Wheel Friday as a theme, you thought it was a one-time stunt. Think again.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

Tanshanomi is Japanese [単車のみ] for "motorcycle(s) only." Though primarily tasked with creating two-wheel oriented content for Hooniverse, Pete is a lover of all sorts of motorized vehicles.


  1. I was going to guess the state in which this was taken, but I suppose I can just look at the plate.

  2. Bonus points: 5 Carburetor Friday.
    (Hey, if you’re going to return to 5 Wheel Friday using Krautwursten’s pic from the last 5WF, I’m going to recycle my reply, too!]

  3. Do you guys have any automobile superstitions? I just had to pick up five kids. In order to do that, I had to fold up the third row, which is hidden under a giant rubbermat, which in turn hides its share of car crap, like starter cables. My wife asked why I put all that back into the car. It took myself by surprise to realize how concerned I would be to get stranded if the starter cables stayed at home…devades of crap car ownership leaving a mental burning mark, I guess.

    1. I have to carry jumper cables as a minor compulsion but I have not used them in years. What freaks me out is not having a spare tire, only a can of Chinese silly string. I’m compelled by the forces of righteousness to buy a real spare tire, jack, and lug wrench.

    2. I fortunately don’t have any superstitions. It drives my wife crazy, because she’s full of them.

    3. I take a pretty complete set of tools on very significant road trip. I don’t recall ever not needing them.

    4. I don’t think I’ve ever had a flat in any of my personal cars, but at the same time, I always carry a breaker bar and 3/4 spark plug socket since my lug nuts are too recessed on my summer wheels for the factory wrench.

    5. I believe that having tools to repair a breakdown reduces the risk of it. So far it has proved out, I haven’t had to tow a car for a long time and my son’s beater Buick hasn’t let him down.

  4. My favorite five wheel setup was the guy who used a Goldwing with a sidecar to carry his Bultaco Astro dirt track racer.
