V.I.S.I.T. – The cars YOU have seen in traffic


Last week I have asked you, my dear hoons, to send in the interesting, Hoon-worthy, cars you see in traffic. Hoons, you have delivered!

Click the jump to see the eighteen cars that Hoons everywhere have spotted. They vary in makes, age, and countries of origin, but they are all special to us, because only we could love them. Keep sending your V.I.S.I.T. cars to kamil@hooniverse.info. I would love to make this a weekly post. Small resolution, recent pictures, on public roads/places. Thanks, and enjoy!

Aaron H. sent this in. Cool.

      Sorry, mistakes will happen. I got all the info from people who sent it in… no time to verify… and we don't do that around here, you send it to us and we'll run it… and then get ridiculed by you, commenters.
      Thanks a lot… A&^$%#*s!

        HAHAHA!!! 😉 It also means we actually read the great stuff you guys post!!!

    Hey! I'm in Columbus and I've seen that same Bradley on the road. Yay! (And howdy, neighbor!)

    1. salguod Avatar

      I didn't actually see it, it was my nephew's picture. He asked me what it was, all I could say without digging was 'VW kit car'. A little Googling and I pegged it as a Bradley GT II.

        Your name is douglas, backwards, twice I read this post, and now I see it. I am an idiot.

        1. salguod Avatar

          Doug is fine, thanks.
          Not too many people put it together, even when knowing my name or seeing it side by side. And no one can spell it backwards to the point that I registered the domain with the U & O both ways.

    Studebaker? No, that's a '52 Packard 250 (Mayfair). That's the first car my parents owned, but ours was Aspen Green (a light pastel). My mom's first husband bought it new for $3800, trading in her '50 Chevrolet with Powerglide (it was a surprise, and she was pissed). The Packard had Ultramatic, and "cruise control" (you pushed the accelerator down, and turned a knob, which held the pedal in place). Not a very good idea.

  5. marmer01 Avatar

    Duke beat me to it. Packard, not Studebaker. I mean, really!

    1. dukeisduke Avatar

      After the Ultramatic crapped out in '65, it sat in the garage, while our new '66 Rambler American 440 4-door (Air conditioning? Hallelujah!) sat in the driveway. That is, until my dad died in '69, and my mom sold it for $25.

    On the way to work this morning, I saw a green Gallardo Superleggera. I see some exciting or weird cars, but usually they're moving, and camera in my POS "smartphone" made by those RIM guys takes several maddening clicks, accompanied by interminable waits, to access. Once I upgrade to a real phone, I'll start taking some pictures.

      The new BlackBerry Z10 is very good and priced competitively. It is nothing like whatever Java OS BlackBerry you are using now. If you are in the US, it'll be out later this month. (Full disclosure: I work for BlackBerry but also have daily access to iOS and Android devices).

    I think this will be much more interesting when the snow melts and people start driving their classier cars. Well more interesting for me, since not everyone has that problem.
    Also you misspelled my name, but not in the way people normally do.

      What the hell is this snow you speak of? I saw some pretty excellent vehicles out and about this weekend.

      1. Devin Avatar

        It's that white, fluffy cold stuff that melts into water and leaks into my kitchen. Grumble grumble complain.

        1. Vairship Avatar

          Ah, THAT stuff. We just keep that stuff in the mountains, a much more sensible place than the kitchen.

    Keep them coming. Great pictures.

    I see my fair share of odd iron crusing around metro Boston. Helps that I drive a legit truck for deliveries & i can see above most other people.

    1. dead_elvis Avatar

      It would be much more interesting if you were driving a non-legit truck.

    Weekly is good. I need to send you the pics I snapped yesterday for this very feature!

  11. muthalovin Avatar

    I am too damn slow with my smartphone to snap pics. What I need to do is just pick up a hitchhiker and have them take pictures for me while I drive.
    The mostest awesomest thing I have seen lately was a Rally Fighter driving around in the rain. 'Twas awesome.

      Many people save their special vehicles for good-weather days. I bet RallyFighterDude wakes up in the morning, sees the clouds in the sky and says "bring it on".

    Maybe it's time to invest in a dashboard camera…

  13. krazykarguy Avatar

    I saw a GMC Syclone parked on the side of the road in Santa Monica about 2 weeks ago. The lag on my camera on my phone is about 1.5 seconds, so I missed the shot… 🙁

    1. OA5599 Avatar

      Wow. Even when parked it was too quick to photograph.

  14. Sjalabais Avatar

    Nice collection! That AMC station wagin is adorable…and I've never heard of Bradley before. Way to go!

    1. OA5599 Avatar

      Bradley was one of the more popular kit cars of the 70's. It's basically a rebodied VW Beetle.

    Last october while I was waiting to get across the causway into town because of construction, a ferrari california came into line behind me. I tried to snap a pic but as soo as I pushed the camera icon the battery warning began shouting and wouldnt allow me to use the camera. I was a bit sour because the california was lined up perfectly in the passenger rear view and woulda made for a great shot.

    A most rare and really well kept Daewoo Nexia 1.5 GL (Cielo or Racer, elsewhere). And it happened to be mine, for 13 years and the only trouble I got with her was a broken exhaust manifold's bolt. Then it was turned into cash for clunker (so to say, with 75K km. not a drop dripping below and almost new tires and battery), so may be now it's a steel cube, or may be not… it's most likely being hooned in Bulgaria or in Romania. These things are quite liked, there…

      I corrected that -2 with a +1. C'mon, guys, car love knows no borders! A Korean Kadett is of historical value!

    To soften the irony: that Sunbeam was also sold as Hillman Imp… And to add some again, maybe: it was dubbed "poor man's Porsche": 2+2! Rear engine! Rear-driven!

    1. longrooffan Avatar

      I pegged that as an Imp initially. And that Packard as well. and that GS Citroen as well. Glad to see I'm not getting all rusty down here in frigid Florida.

          He's got a knack for finding some seriously decrepit rides. And yeah, it's great to see a kid too young to drive contributing like that!
