    [singlepic id=449 w=650 float=center]We’ve got a plan: you buy copious amounts of Hoonimerch, making us filthy rich. We’ll use the proceeds to build epic garages like these, and you can all come over and hang out. Just leave your crappy non-jaw-droppingly-awesome cars outside, please. And wipe your feet. Jump for the gallery, sourced from user…

    Whether Pinto or Pantera, Daihatsu or, as in this case, Duesenberg, it doesn’t make any difference how much power you have, if your transmission isn’t up to the task.

    Do you find tha people just don’t take you seriously enough? Be it in traffic or at the office, they just see you as a total pushover? Need to convince those around you that you’re not to be trifled with, but afraid that showing up dressed as a member of GWAR or getting a face…

  • Slow Car Fast, Eh? How About This One

    /

    comments

    You’re looking at a 1969 Bedford CA Dormobile Camper Van. It’s got 4 berths and a 1.6L engine that likely makes all of 50hp. Cute as a button, slow as hell. Drive it fast, if you dare. Source: Bonhams, via Dinosaurs and Robots (which you ought to be reading already)

    It’s entirely possible I’m developing an unhealthy obsession with VW Buses, but I’m not entirely to blame: our beloved commenters keep encouraging me! It’s really not my fault!

  • For Sale- Best to Read the Fine Print

    comments

    This Craigslist ad for a 1978 Datsun Z-car seems pretty straight forward, aside from some chuckle-worthy spell-check errors- leather sits, neck turner, etc. But when buying anything, it’s always a good idea to read the fine print before taking the plunge.

    comments

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_kvNCXbqtc[/youtube] There’s something horrifyingly seductive about an electrified Fiberfab Valkyrie …. you could rig it to run silent, sneak up behind unsuspecting enemies (Tesla owners?), and blast them right in the mucus membranes with an air-cannon filled with Bondo dust (judging by the bodywork, you’d likely have ample ammunition in the footwells). Now, if this…

  • '79 Hurst Olds Still Available

    comments

    Just a note: the baddest car ever to roll out of 1979 is still available. The owner, Sebastian, has to go back to Germany a couple of weeks and needs to sell the car. We’ve seen it in person and driven it, alas, it’s been decided the Mad_Science driveway and project schedule is too full…

  • Hooniverse Asks- Is it Really More Fun to Drive a Slow Car Fast Than a Fast Car Slow?

    /

    comments

    The old saying goes that it’s more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow. Having driven my share of both slow and fast cars, I can say that it’s most fun to drive a fast car fast, but that opportunity doesn’t come up all that often. Usually driving with any…

    If you stop and think about it, the phrase “racecar for the street” is tossed around pretty liberally. But when, pray tell, was the last time you switched on the boob tube and saw a loud cycle-fendered kit car designed by two English blokes who spend as much time at the pub as they do…

    Here’s a very typical parking lot – this one happens to be at the Warner Brother’s studios – which is filled with cars you normally wouldn’t even notice if they passed you on the street. But there’s one that kinda’ sticks out, can you find it? Better, do you know what it is? And if…

  • Insane Ducati-powered Fiat 500 gets Hooniverse Seal of Approval

    Take a car roughly the size of an Oompa-Loompa, toss the original motor, and cram in a L-twin desmodromic Ducati mill channelling the power through the rear end via a six-speed sequential transmission and a LSD … whaddya get? That sure as hell ain’t your grandmother’s recipe for minestrone, now is it? It’s more likely…
