All I’ve ever wanted to be is Hoon of the Day. The only reason I exist on this toilet earth and get up every garbage morning is to send it, and then go back and send it some more. Today I have reached the pinnacle of hoon achievement. Dictionary.com now quotes me as an authority on the term “send it.”
The wildest part is how easy he makes it all look. I could do that, you think, watching Travis Pastrana clear 16 buses, I just don’t want to.
The video was just titled “Rally Truck Jump.” All of those things are relevant to my interests. I’ll click. I’ll watch. Even if it’s a garbage vertical video, I’m there, dude. I’ll watch all the sweet jumps. But I certainly didn’t expect to see a vintage work truck pretending to be Colin McRae’s Subaru here. Send it!
The most famous corners in racing are all about elevation change: Eau Rouge at Spa, The Corkscrew at Laguna Seca, the Minami jump at Ebisu. Now, please welcome the“Roller Coaster From Hell,” recently run for the first time at Estonia’s Kehala Ring.
Were you also thousands of miles away from the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally and therefore unable to go? Thank goodness the internet is here to fulfill our need to see cars send it with a big jump megacut, then.
I once got a Subaru Legacy wagon re-named the Space Shuttle because it caught so much air. Frankly, every Legacy wagon should enjoy the same fate. Here’s your daily moment of wagon send zen.
There’s not much else to do with an old, tired car besides build a ramp up to heaven and send it. That’s what these enterprising gentlemen did with a 1980s Sedan de Ville that really, really doesn’t sound good anymore, and surprise: that big old smoking V8 just barely gets the job done anymore.
Y’all got some of that LSD? The limited-slip differential is perhaps the best drug known to hoon-kind. It’s the trick tech that keeps your burnouts from being sad one-tire fires. Once you drive one, you’re hooked. The Hoonigans released this absurd, nearly 45-minute megacut of their best burnouts, donuts and stunts,…
Here’s a good idea. Do you own a BMW 8 series? Or are you interested in buying the new one? Take it in the dirt!
The 1990s Bronco is, understandably, stuck very firmly in its reputation as OJ’s car and not much else. That shouldn’t be the case.
Colin’s Crest is one of the most delightful parts of Rally Sweden. Every year, the organizers have a mini competition on the Vargåsen stage as to who jumps the farthest over one particular crazy fast jump. Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville didn’t win the Colin’s Crest Award, but his jump was insane for other reasons.
If you have the uncontrollable urge to send it over rad and possibly ill-advised jumps, nothing beats a $300 beater. With one, the Hoonigans made the absolute greatest thing I’ve watched all year: an almost 19 minute supercut of straight-up vehicular destruction that somehow doesn’t actually destroy this Buick.
One of the most beautiful off-road-style builds we’ve ever seen is this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000, which started its new life when it was dropped off a flat-bed trailer. Owners Nikita and Ilya Bridan rebuilt it into an safari-style hoonmobile, which inevitably came to Hoonigan’s yard where it died as it was meant to…
Watch the brake lights as this Kia Sorento takes off from a drive-thru ATM in Rockford, Illinois two days before Christmas. They never come on, even as the car hits a berm, goes airborne and bunny hops another car.
Happy Winter Solstice, everybody! No matter what you celebrate, there’s a good chance that you’ll be doing the whole gifting and/or overeating schtick sooner or later this month. Here’s a better idea: go hoon the dunes.
Gather around, friends, and let us watch a BMW E46 fly through the air until it eventually just flies open itself.
The Oldsmobile Alero is all but the definition of a “regular car.” It’s bland. It’s inoffensive. It will get you from Point A to Point B just fine. It can also do burnouts and sweet jumps if you’re quite bored. SEND IT!
Are you feeling down? Get up. I mean, physically up. As in, the direction away from the ground. You should jump an incredibly large vehicle into the air. Pretend your huge mud truck is a rocketship and fly! Roam free about the air! Nothing can get you down when you’re up!
