This Ford aspires to be a better hoon

The Ford Aspire would be the poster child for crappy Korean autobox rebadge jobs except no one ever put the Ford Aspire on a poster. But with a few Wendy's trays, a big dream, and a crappy car these guys made donuts happen. » 6/30/11 1:00pm 6/30/11 1:00pm

Lewis Hamilton's car sports "Hooning is Not a Crime" bumper sticker

A Jalopnik reader spotted a most ironic bumper sticker slapped to the back of F1 star Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes wagon at this month's 2011 Canadian Grand Prix. Damn straight "hooning is not a crime," except for when it is and you get arrested for it or have your license revoked. » 6/16/11 4:35pm 6/16/11 4:35pm

He just Ghost-donuted his BMW convertible

Props to whomever this gentlemen is for not only doing truly epic donuts in his BMW E30, but for ghost-donuting his car. Do not try this at home, you don't have the skills. » 6/06/11 1:00pm 6/06/11 1:00pm

Rock out with your IROC out

This video raises a few interesting questions: is this really an 11-second 3G Camaro? Is it really an IROC? How is this a turbo V6-powered Camaro if it's an IROC? Did the turbo V6 come out of the Turbo Trans Am — i.e. a version of the GN six? Are you a God? » 5/26/11 1:00pm 5/26/11 1:00pm

Watch a skinless Dodge Viper make epic donuts

Posting the story yesterday on the Viper-powered Saab wagon unearthed this great video of the monster's Viper body completely naked doing tire-smoking donuts. Epic. » 5/17/11 1:30pm 5/17/11 1:30pm

Drifting around downtown Hotlanta

Red Bull managed to convince the city of Atlanta to close off Peachtree Street downtown so that Rhys Millen and Ryan Tuerck could stage a mini-drift challenge around the office buildings. Sure beats standing in line at Chop't. » 5/10/11 1:00pm 5/10/11 1:00pm

Once a hoon, always a hoon

In his pop-psych psuedo-novel The Social Animal writer/pundit David Brooks posits that much of our decision-making isn't conscious but the result of a network of subconscious neural networks. Perhaps hooning isn't learned, perhaps it's actually something formed at a deeper level within our synaptic pathways in some… » 4/27/11 1:00pm 4/27/11 1:00pm

Pedobear Miata goes to an even worse place

When you hear the words "Pedobear" and "Miata" in the same sentence, you know someone's going somewhere they don't belong. In this case, it's a lowered Miata sneaking under an unsuspecting 18-wheeler like Pedobear sneaking under... well... you get the idea. » 4/25/11 1:00pm 4/25/11 1:00pm

Rear-engined Volkswagens have more fun

With all the hype around the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle it's worth remembering that, despite the more "masculine look" and "Herbie-like handling" it'll never actually handle like Herbie so long as it is front-engine and front-wheel-drive. » 4/18/11 1:00pm 4/18/11 1:00pm

30-year-old Toyota's drift antics shame its offspring

A hoon sees an on-ramp as an opportunity for shenanigans, and what's better to hoon than an early '80s Toyota AE86 coupe with like three shades of paint on it? Old Toyotas are so much fun. » 4/15/11 1:00pm 4/15/11 1:00pm

Chinese man drives two bumper cars in traffic

Driving a single bumper car on a public road is the act of a minor hoon. Doing so in Chinese traffic elevates you to full hoon status. Driving two bumper cars at the same time on Chinese roads makes you Hoon of the Day. » 4/14/11 1:00pm 4/14/11 1:00pm

Anybody hungry for M3 donuts?

Today's message: Enjoy the simple things in life — a warm spring breeze, a cold Bell's Oberon, or destroying a set of spent rear tires on your M3 with donuts in an empty parking lot. » 4/13/11 1:00pm 4/13/11 1:00pm

Driver saves car with insane spin-save

Bombing down a curvy highway in Portugal, this Audi driver went into full Code Brown on a downhill sweeper. A few steering moves later the A4 was by the roadside, but facing forward. Listen closely to hear how the creepy radio broadcast plays Greek Chorus. » 4/11/11 1:00pm 4/11/11 1:00pm

Proof you can drift a 4x4 diesel pickup truck

You're a future drifting champ of the Philippines, so it's likely your first pro-prepped vehicle will be a Mazda diesel pickup, as you're taken under the tutelage of JP Tuason of Mandaluyong City. First lesson: drifting. Second? The three-model stripdown. » 4/08/11 1:00pm 4/08/11 1:00pm

Best burnout ever… with a Tracker

Life is all about the caveats, and while this isn't the best burnout-meets-donuts ever, it is almost certainly the best set done by someone in a Geo/Chevy Tracker. Bonus points for the snorkel, public road, and video editing. Someone please prove us wrong. » 4/07/11 1:00pm 4/07/11 1:00pm

Drifting Nissan Skylines with ladies on top

Because drifting is a sport designed to appeal largely to 15-year-old boys, drifting events are often full of women also designed to appeal largely to 15-year-old boys. Combine the two in one Skyline-spinning moment and you've essentially created a vortex of post-pubescent interest. Quickly, to YouTube! » 4/06/11 1:00pm 4/06/11 1:00pm

How to "endo" your car

In the BMX world an "endo" is when you stall the bike and lean forward on the front tire. This Mazda 626 coupe owner does basically the same thing, but with a car. He almost finishes with a full barrel roll but stops just short. » 4/04/11 1:00pm 4/04/11 1:00pm

Skating the Piaggio Ape with a wheel to spare

The Piaggio Ape makes an excellent mini-work vehicle for the small Italian streets. But just because it's a scooter with three wheels doesn't mean you can also take it for a few two-wheel thrills. » 3/31/11 1:00pm 3/31/11 1:00pm
