Monday's Site Upload: Hooniverse

Hooniverse devotes its web space to all things with wheels and an engine, including forums, projects, merch, car uploading sites, blog posts, road test reviews, and auto industry news. Forums discuss topics such as cars available for sale, car updates and modifications, how-to help for the DIY mechanic, and simple voices from automechanics and like-minded enthusiasts. I immediately fell in love with this post: why don't they make these kind of cars anymore?? I'd take one any day!!

"When you think 1963 International Harvester Travelall, you usually think rusted, clapped-out raccoon sex dungeon on the back 40 of some farm in Iowa. Today’s example is no such hulk. This one’s been completely gone through and received a collection of new parts including paint, tires, a carb rebuild, battery and other details. There are basket cases, there are cars with what seems like a bunch stuff added, and there are cars cleaned up correctly. This one’s the latter.

With a 266ci V8 and 4 speed manual, it won’t win any races, but it will tow a small boat or sports car of similar vintage. It’s only two wheel drive, but let’s be honest: you’re not going to do any serious offroading or snow duty in a classic like this. Besides, the tires are 33″ BFG All-Terrains that offer enough clearance and traction should things get interesting. If you really wanted to, you could convert it to 4wd for less money and effort than it would take to bring a typical 4wd example up to this condition."
