Morgan

From The Drive-Setting 3 Records on 3 Wheels in 1 Wonderfully Miserable Trip from LA to NY

Zach Bowman in the Morgan 3 WheelerThis is without a doubt the best thing I have read all week, so I decided to re-share it here. Today on The Drive Zach Bowman recounts in immersive and poetic detail how he and Alex Roy drove from Los Angeles to New York in a Morgan 3-Wheeler. In case you’re unfamiliar with the 3-Wheeler, it’s a 3-wheeled kit car with a wooden frame. A 3-wheeled kit car that’s as raw and fun as they come. This is equal parts hilarious, miserable, and awesome. Hat tip to Kamil Kaluski. Enjoy the read. (more…)

 

Alex Roy’s Morgan 3-Wheeler: So Wrong Yet So Right

Video by The Smoking Tire

This new video by Matt Farah from the Smoking Tire is probably filled with more laughter than any single One Take video we’ve seen from him so far. In the video, he takes Alex Roy’s Morgan 3-Wheeler up and down Angeles Crest Highway in one take (hence the name) giving his impressions of the Morgan along the way. As noted in the video, this car has a lot of drawbacks including the need for a helmet, it having exhaust pipes that can burn you, a huge lack of practicality, among many others. Despite all of this, Matt Farah says that it makes him feel like the Great Gatsby and that he thinks it’s the greatest car ever made. He can’t seem to say enough good things about it. Push play and let the laughter begin.

The Hooniversal Opinion: A Conventional Geneva 2015


Re-shared from Hooniverse, text by Bradley Brownell, Eric Rood, Greg Kachadurian, Tim Odell, Kamil Kaluski, Jeff Glucker, and Bryce Womeldurf.

Geneva is an interesting auto show. There is always something really important launching there, and this year is no different. For some reason, it always seems like the major European sports car manufacturers choose Geneva to display their ‘exciting’ offerings. Unfortunately, none of the elegant scribes from our hallowed halls will be in attendance of the Geneva show, so we’ll be reporting from the sidelines. I’ll set up the pins, and the rest of our faultless crew will knock them down with unstoppable bowling ball of opinionated journalism.

We have new car launches in the form of Mercedes’ AMG GT3 racer, Audi’s R8, Porsche’s Cayman GT4 and 911 GT3 RS, Lamborghini’s Aventador Superveloce, Morgan’s Aero 8, Jeep’s Renegade ‘Hard Steel’, Range Rover’s Evoque Cabriolet, McLaren’s 675LT and P1 GTR, Brabus’ Rocket 900, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus’ SCG 003, Koenigsegg’s Agera RS and Regera, and Aston Martin’s Vulcan and V12 Vantage GT3. There are also some pretty tempting concept pieces, with Infiniti dropping the small QX30 Concept, Bentley’s EXP 10 Speed 6, Volkswagen’s Sport Coupe GTE, Lexus’ LF-SA, and Magna Steyr’s MILA.

Power Squats and Power Bulges at Auto Collections Las Vegas

1967 California SpyderI had heard that Auto Collections was Las Vegas’ premiere place to go if you want to buy, or just look at, vintage steel. I went two weeks ago, while on vacation, and ended up stretching, squatting, and leaning myself through 300+ photo shots. Here are a few of my favorites. (more…)
