24 Hours of LeMons Arse-Freeze-Apalooza: Ferkel and Miata go BOOM!

Just watch the video.

In my highly unprofessional opinion this was unavoidable. The Porsche driver could not have seen that Miata stopped there. Not over that hill, not with those cars in the way. Sucks.

Tim’s team is having issues. They are predominantly fuel issues; fuel starvation and fuel leaks, which may or may not be related. They completed four laps.

Truck Thursday: Land Rover Series 3 Project

land rover series 3 project 1

When we are not posting cool awesome pointless stories here on Redusernab for you, we, your awesome writers, exchange hundreds of pointless emails each day. In those emails we discuss future business plans site growth opportunities site monetization returns on investment of time and money dumb ideas which often expose our automotive weaknesses. The esteemed Robert Emslie thought that since I like Land Rovers, this project would be right up my alley.

1993 Frankfurt Auto Show: Saab 900 SE Premiere

Kamil Kaluski December 3, 2015 All Things Hoon

Every time auto manufacturers show off their new vehicle at one of the many major auto shows around the world, they try to present in an original way. In my years I have seen a flash mod, , obscure Guinness records being set, horrible dance performances, bands, singers, famous chefs, and other similar attempts by auto makers at drawing attention to their new product.

Not so with Saab. In 1993, despite their company, and future, now firmly in the solid and secure hands of a company that is too big to fail, and their new vehicle nickled-and-dimed on the platform, they still chose to show off their engineering rather put on a horse and pony show. Enjoy watching this very interesting premiere.


Craigslist: Car Aint Got NO ROOF !!!

Car Aint Got NO ROOF 1

The trick to buying cars, for many of us, is spotting the potential in what others would consider a basket case. The rust-free but otherwise needing everything special, the pimped out, the blown engine but otherwise perfect mechanic special. They’re out there.

Our own Alan Cesar sent this Car Aint Got NO ROOF !!!  ad into out tips line. To an untrained eye it looks like another butchered classic GM sedan, but to some of us…

Quick Spin: 2015 Lexus RC 350 AWD

2015 Lexus RC 350 front left 2

I may be in the minority of people, especially for people under the age of forty, when I say that I like many of the Toyota and Lexus cars. Toyotas make for well built, reliable, long lasting, basic transportation. Lexus builds on Toyota’s philosophy and adds nice, quiet, interiors, better materials, and unique styling. Most of the cars, such as the IS, GS, and LS, do not have a Toyota equivalent, making it a mostly stand-alone brand, which is great in world of never ending badge engineering.

Lexus’ newest addition to its line-up of cars is the RC coupe. The coupe is loosely based on IS and GS architecture, and being that I really enjoyed the IS and GS F cars, I had high expectations of it. The RC is set to be a direct competitor for the Audi A5, BMW 4-series, Mercedes C coupe, and the Infiniti G37/Q60, which is to say it should attract image-conscious yuppies.

Video: Slightly Icy Road in Kazakhstan

Kamil Kaluski November 25, 2015 All Things Hoon

Where I live, in northeastern United States, people instantly forget how to drive the moment a slight drizzle starts. Rain? Forget about it, expect your commute to take twice as long. When the first snow comes, something which has been happening every winter for centuries, it’s like people have never seen it before. Thankfully we live in a somewhat civilized society and therefore most roads are mostly clean within a few hours of a snow storm.

Things in Kazakhstan, formerly a part of the Soviet Republic, are a bit different, as this video shows.

Video: Lenny’s Garage

Kamil Kaluski November 23, 2015 Hoonivercinema

Given a garage big enough, most of us here at Redusernab would fill it up with old, weird, and obscure cars. Chances are that some of then may even run. Brooklynite Lenny Shiller happens to have a garage in the city big enough to hold his collection of 58 cars, bikes, and motorcycles, and he has the space to repair them and store parts for them. Check out the awesome video about this man and his collection.

Lenny Shiller is a lifelong Brooklyn resident and classic car collector. He has amassed a staggering 58 rare classic cars, while he also owns hundreds of vintage bikes, motorcycles, and memorabilia. Lenny spends his time restoring and maintaining his collection, with the intention one day to pass them on to the next generation. The walls of his 12,000 sq ft garage in Gowanus are stacked with car parts he has collected over the years, the space resembling part working garage, part museum.

Russion Show Takes Stunt Driving In a New Direction (or Two)

Kamil Kaluski November 10, 2015 Hoonivercinema

Stunt car shows are more popular in Europe than here in the U.S. That’s probably because we have awesome monster trucks with awesome engines, awesome dragsters, robot monsters that eat other not -so-awesome cars, school buses that jump, and everything we have is basically bigger, better, louder and more awesome-er. America!

In Russia they have…Toyota Tercels. Playing the cards they were dealt, they made something cool. You’d expect them to perhaps drive on two wheels, or have one of their Olympic gymnasts do a split between two cars, or perhaps a fancy e-brake parking job. Nope. Check out the video for the unexpected result.

The BestRide/CarTalk Ultimate Guide to Winter Driving

2014 toyota 4runner trail stuck snow

You see that very capable off-road vehicle in the above picture? It has a full frame, two-speed transfer-case, locking differentials, and a fancy terrain response system. And it’s stuck in a few inches of snow.

That was me, in the 2014 Toyota 4Runner Trail, of which I was trying to take some pictures for the review. Getting stuck sucked, especially in rural Vermont on a Sunday afternoon. I really blamed the highway tires mounted to this rig, but at the end of the day, it’s always the driver’s fault. Had I stayed five feet to right, I probably would have been fine.

Our friends at BestRide and Car Talk, who are born and raised in the Boston area, know a thing or two about winters. They have come up with a very detailed . Their guide covers all the basics many of us know, but they also got help from industry experts and professional drivers which may teach you something you don’t already know. It may not stop you from getting stuck, but it might help you get out. Check it out!
