Project V8 4th-gen 4Runner: Spring update

I’ve had the yet-to-be-named 4Runner for a few months now. (Millenium Falcon is the working title, in case you were wondering, continuing my Star Wars theme). As is the case with any new-to-you project, three things need to happen: Set a baseline, mend existing issues, and start improving. Much of this has happened. Progress has […]

2020 Toyota Camry TRD – It’s… kinda cool?

2020 Toyota Camry TRD

I’ll start with the obvious, “cool” is a relative term. I may not even be qualified to label something cool, likely not. But the more I stared at the 2002 Toyota Camry TRD, the more I started to think it might just be cool. It definitely came closer than any other pedestrian commuter car to […]

The 2021 4Runner Trail Edition isn’t what it should be

I love you, Toyota. I really, really do. I love the Tacoma. I love the Supra, in all of its iterations. And I especially love the 4Runner. But I don’t love the new Trail Edition Package. It shouldn’t be called Trail, it should be called Campsite. I get why you did it, Toyota, I really […]

Review: 2020 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro CrewMax

2020 Toyota Tundra TRD PRO CrewMax

Aging is a funny thing, once you’re old enough to afford certain things or experiences, you’re often too old to enjoy them. Of course age is only a number, and that’s a good thing for the 2020 Toyota Tundra. I’ve reviewed several trim levels of the most recent Tundra over the past few years, including […]

GR Yaris – Bring it here Toyota, sign the petition!

Hot hatchbacks are awesome. They deliver one of the most entertaining automotive experiences. It’s a combination of factors that make them great. A hot hatch is built around small size, light weight, and approachable power. You get a feeling that they can be driven hard, yet you’re not touching incarceration-inducing speeds. We’re dealing with a […]

Toyota Townace

It’s a glorious time in the automotive world. That’s a broad statement, but it applies heavily to imports that are finally legal to own and drive here in the USA. Now that so many are coming up on or passing the 25-year import law mark, we’re starting to see some truly amazing cars here on […]

2020 Toyota Supra vs. 2020 BMW Z4 M40i

BMW Z4 vs. Toyota Supra

It’s unlikely that the average Hooniverse reader is unaware that there is a new Toyota Supra and a new BMW Z4 for 2020. Nor is it a stretch to say that you all likely know that the cars are built from the same G29 BMW platform. However, most people have probably not had the chance […]

Do modifications increase the value of a Toyota 4Runner?

Toyota 4Runner

Let’s be clear from the start: I’m a die-hard fan of the Toyota 4Runner. I have owned a 4th gen and a 5th gen and will inevitably own another in the future. From daily driver to weekend wheeling companion, the 4Runner works shockingly well in every conceivable usage. For many events in my life, including some […]

2018 4Runner conclusion: Life changes but I’ll always love the 4Runner

2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off Road Premium

What are some of the most stressful events and changes in life? Getting married. Moving. Changing jobs. Most people don’t do more than two of those in a year. I’ve done all three April. And apparently that wasn’t enough so I went through another stressful process and sold all of my vehicles. First to go […]
