    There’s a street nearby the palatial Hooniverse HQ that people have been using as a de facto used car lot. They park their cars on the side of the road with for sale signs in the windows, with the hope of catching a buyer’s eye as they speed past at or above the posted 45…

    You thought our clever little line about EscortsForever’s rally gallery giving us Quattro Fever (aka H1-20V) was empty wordsmithing? Think again! One of the benefits of living in LA—aside from the police helicopters and wildfires—is a well-stocked Craigslist. One beautiful black UR-Quattro coming up! [Edit: Nevermind, we’re off our game today we’re merely talking about…

    We’re known in real life for inflicting random web finds upon our friends. “Where do you find this stuff?!” our friends and family ask. Hence: Hooniverse. Reader Maymar’s beating us at our own game with this one, though. in 1989, Jaguar commissioned the construction of the XJS-Junior, essentially a Power-Wheels with a really fancy interior…

    Reader EscortsForever has been so kinda as to grace us with a pile of shots from the pre-race parc expose from the Lake Superior Performance Rally. Quoth the photographer: Today is the beginning of the awesome. Between classes, I managed to get out to the parc expose (where the rally drivers show off their cars).…

    Well, I think we’re showing fairly conclusively that the Big Bang Theory is correct. The Hooniverse really did start with a Big Bang, and seems to be expanding at an exponential rate. And to be perfectly honest, I don’t think any of us has the slightest idea what to do with it. So, blindly fumbling…

    Everyone thinks they can drive well… only few actually can. One such Hoon (yes capital H for him) goes by the name Rob Krider. You may be familiar with his Racer Boy series over at SpeedSportLife, a great running column where he discusses what it takes to race at many various levels. You read the…

    There are certain cars-  Corvettes, Porsche 911s, the Countach, that strike a familiar chord in even someone with only a passing interest in cars. But there are many, many great cars out there that, even if you’ve heard of them, you might never get the chance to actually see. Hooniverse wants to make sure you…

    When I was in high school, my parents did what any sensible family living in the District of Columbia did in the 80s: they fled to the suburbs.  In a city where you couldn’t even guarantee the picking up of dead bodies, let alone the picking up of the trash, the promise of a remotely…

    Our beloved Jo Schmo has sent in a link to an Italian motoring blog — or… something, my Italian language skills are right up there with my Russian and Japanese — that featured this beautiful example of a hand-crafted children’s toy.

    Time to put on your thinking caps and see if you can tell from this photo, the make and model of car. For extra points and giggles- what engine does it have? You’ve got quite a bit to go on- you can tell that it’s red – in fact shockingly so. Also, it has windows…

    Car movies have always been a Hollywood staple, much like the Western, or movies featuring John C Reilly. When you’re not able to be out enjoying your car; say during a stint of house arrest, or unforeseen herpes outbreak, you can still take solace in sitting back and losing yourself in a couple of hours…

    Yesterday’s Name That Part had a personalized touch. As Mike The Dog pointed out, it was the fuel pump from an AMC 195.6 OHV inline-six, circa 1964. I fought with this part at length, and after replacing it twice, ended up taking one apart and making a few tweaks to solve a problem I was…

    Ok hoons… someone amongst us has put together a pretty cool idea for a reality show that doesn’t involve the Kardashians or brain-dead from Orange County residents who now live in The Hills. You all know our good friend Bentoboxx, right? Well he is part of team trying to bring My Way or the Highway…

    Among the automotive casualties of the Malaise Era, the four-door hardtop is probably one of the least mourned. Born with the ’55 Buicks and Oldsmobiles and died with the ’78 Chrysler fullsizers, the idea of a B-pillar bereft saloon (and occasional wagon) made family cars measurably cooler, but as the Naderites were all too eager…

    …or more accurately, that’s how we would roll if we had $230,000 to drop on a Roller. Hemmings inaccurately titles this the “Find of the Day”. More like find of the millenium. Unfortunately, those cruel elitist bastards only saw fit to grant us one picture of this 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that ran in…
