    As hoons of finite means, we often ask ourselves “if I won the lottery, what would I buy?” This is not to say, that were we suddenly Scrooge McDuck rich, we should only buy one car. It is to ask what car amongst many would we be sure to acquire, the jewel of our collection,…

  • Creepiest Ice Cream Truck Ever

    comments

    True story: when The_Missus was young, her parents told her that whenever the ice cream truck was playing music, that meant they were out of ice cream. That may be mildly evil, but not as bad as this ice cream truck. Not only is it just a typical conversion van with a couple of magnets…

    I have a confession to make my friends… I don’t know that much about what is actually going on deep inside the guts of a car. I can drive them, spout off some some random specs on modern cars and trucks, and I like to believe I can write about them to some degree. Being…

  • Found On Craigslist- $1,000 Per Mile Pantera

    /

    /

    comments

    The De Tomaso Pantera is one of the few exotic cars that owners seem nonplussed about modifying. These days it is more rare to come across one that hasn’t had its engine quad-turbo’d, or bodywork group-fived. So it comes as kind of a shock to find this pristine example from 1974 that not only is…

  • Hooniversations: Cabin Cruiser Bikes- Good Thing or Bad Thing?

    /

    /

    comments

    Cabin bikes seem like a good idea, overcoming the inclement weather and road hazard detriments of riding a motorcycle, while still providing the narrow profile and agility that only having two-wheels affords. The question is; why haven’t they caught on?

    Bob Dylan is one of the most famous, most recognizable, and one of the most respected names in the music industry. His songs have become a part of the rock ‘n’ roll canon, and have been covered so many times that younger listeners are often surprised to learn that a particular piece was, in fact,…

  • What the Hell? "1947" Fiat-Crosley Thing

    /

    /

    comments

    My first thought was Dr. Seuss Goes Racing. Beyond that, it devolves into a bunch of “huh?” and “what?”. To begin with, ain’t no way this is a 1947 anything. The seller bought it from the daughter of the original owner (and likely, builder), meaning we’re at least two levels removed from the real story.…
