Under the Hood: Valvoline examines the DIY spirit

Here in the Hooniverse, we love dirty hands, tools that are actually used, and project vehicles that are both a point of pride and a point of frustration.

The Infiniti Q80 Is Neat But Won't Look Anything Like The Actual Car

You ever look at a concept car and immediately think, "Yeah, the production car isn't gonna look anything like that?" That's the reaction I get out of the Infiniti Q80 Inspiration Concept.

Hennessey Will Build A 717 HP Ford Mustang For The Price Of A Hellcat

We live in a golden age of accessible and insanely overpowered muscle cars. There's the Corvette Z06 making 650 HP, and of course there's the 707 HP SRT Hellcat.

Speedycop's Race-Ready Family Truckster Is Amazing And For Sale!

The gaudy, overwrought Wagon Queen Family Truckster is probably one of the best visual gags in National Lampoon's Vacation and says more about the excesses of the American auto industry than many books on the subject.

Lincoln Is Trying To Get Its Shit Together With $2.5 Billion Investment
