    Here at Hooniverse we have a fondness for the old/classic/busted/unusual/LeMons/exotic/cheap/expensive vehicles of the world. The problem is that we also like new cars. These two worlds can co-exist (daily driver vs project car) peacefully, I promise. We have posted a few new car reviews but they have all been expensive, high-powered machines. Wait, what’s the…

    I want to admit this to you right off the bat; I’ve never been much of a Corvette fan. I always thought the C1s were cool, and the C2s were kind of bad ass but the rest of the lineup does nothing for me. That is until I drove my first Corvette two years ago…
