Poland Is Pretty Convinced It Found A Buried Nazi Train, Maybe Full Of Gold

Two random guys said they’d found a long-lost Nazi train last week, buried underground at the end of World War II. Local legends said that one matching the description went missing in the closing days of the war, and it was full of plundered gold. It sounded crazy, but the Polish government said they might be onto… » 8/28/15 5:45pm Today 5:45pm

My Plan To Make Motorcycle Journalism Not Suck Anymore

Last month, Jalopnik managing editor Patrick George announced that Jalopnik had finally come to its senses, acknowledging motorcycles are awesome, and that Lanesplitter is going to try to be the motorcycle site the world needs. This month some idiot convinced them that, in order to achieve that, they needed to hire me. » 8/28/15 5:32pm Today 5:32pm

The 2016 Smart ForTwo Isn't Allowed To Be As Fun As It Could Be

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m really not the most objective person to be writing about the new 2016 Smart ForTwo. That’s not because of any loyalty to the company, but rather an innate fondness of the type of car: a rear-engined, small economy car. Decades ago, these were once everywhere, and now, in the U.S. at… » 8/28/15 4:45pm Today 4:45pm

Police: Car's Direction Contributed To Disney World Track Instructor's Death

The Florida Highway Patrol has released its findings on the April crash at the Disney World Speedway track that claimed a track instructor’s life, and it confirms what many suspected — that running the course in the opposite direction of how it was designed to run is what led to the car getting impaled by a guard rail. » 8/28/15 4:30pm Today 4:30pm

Fall is Coming and You Need a Convertible

The days are getting shorter. The air will be a little crisper soon, if you live in a place in which this happens. There are hearty souls who will fetch the groceries in a blizzard in their Fiat 124s, but most of us start pickling our toys when the leaves turn. That’s not the way it has to be, says Peter Egan. Grab a… » 8/28/15 2:45pm Today 2:45pm

South Korea's Massive Live Fire Exercise Is Overwhelmingly Intense On Purpose

South Korean and American forces are said to be at a readiness unlike any in the world, wound up to spring into all-out war if need be at the sound of a klaxon.

In Defense of the CUV (An Enthusiast Divided)

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who speak in sweeping generalizations, and those who don’t. Unfortunately, I seem to have just doomed myself to the former category, but I’m going to try to make up for that right now. There are a few choice industry terms thrown around these days that are sure to… » 8/28/15 1:16pm Today 1:16pm

Determined Maniac Thinks He Can Win A Tug-Of-War With A Tow Truck

A perverse part of me sort of admires this idiot. Firstly, because this guy seems to actually own a grape-soda-colored Honda Pilot, and secondly because you have to admire the power of rage-thinking when it can make a presumably mostly-rational human think they can win a tug-of-war with a tow truck and somehow all… » 8/28/15 1:07pm Today 1:07pm
