I happened to see someone’s happy birthday post on Facebook that featured a remarkable Toyota Crown cake. This thing was the Finnegan’s Wake of automotive cakes. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen a better car-cake. Curious, I found out who made it, and, oh boy, if car-cakes are your thing, put down a dropcloth to catch…
The Trump administration has kept airlines and nations on edge as it weighed a decision to expand an in-flight ban on electronics larger than a smartphone. On Wednesday, the administration announced that it will not expand the ban, and it will lift be lifted in countries that were already affected. But the terms of…
Long before everyone had machines on their desks, laps, and in their pockets capable of providing them with pornography from a global pornography-distribution network, people had to distribute hardcore pornography on celluloid film, like animals. The earliest example seems to be a 1915 movie that revolves around a car.
In my search for the best kart in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I paid almost no attention to the bikes. Neither did any of the build recommendation websites that I cited. That’s because a lot of the bikes in Mario Kart 8 didn’t used to be viable in competitive play. Turns out, I shouldn’t have been so quick to write them off.…

I know DMVs aren’t necessarily staffed with gearheads or even anyone who necessarily gives a rat’s rectum about cars, but you’d think there’d be some people with at least a familiarity of car terms. You’d think, but it seems you’d be dreaming, based on this rejected personalized plate from the California DMV.
A lot of good comment threads today, but we’re going with the one that was at least entertainingly educational.
I’ve heard of flight delays for stuff like bad weather and air traffic but admittedly never for ‘luck.’ But these unfortunate passengers in China sure have.

Uber laid out new details in a court filing today about how it learned the former lead of its self-driving car unit, Anthony Levandowski, took documents from Google, his former employer.
Among other things, the internet is really good for pictures of cats, fast dinner recipes and answering questions you were too embarrassed to ask a real person.

Something tragic happened off the coast of Japan on June 17th. It’s not entirely clear how it happened, but seven sailors are now dead. What we do know is that a U.S. Navy destroyer collided with a much larger cargo ship. Blame has been placed on the destroyer’s crew, but there’s a lot about this that doesn’t add up.
Agitated, sweaty and perpetually late subway riders have had enough of New York’s disintegrating transit system and plan to protest outside of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s city office tonight to give him a piece of their mind. Will he fix the trains after this? Probably not, but it’s something.
BMW is looking to save some cash as it invests in electric, hybrid and autonomous vehicles. To do so, Reuters reports, the company is going to drop manual variants of the BMW 2 Series, one of Jalopnik’s favorite cars—which seems like the opposite of getting their mojo back. But BMW’s U.S. spokespeople dispute the…
Make: Wienermobile. Model: NPRHD. Year: 2012. This one’s name? OHIWISH. The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile randomly stopped outside our office today, and this is its VIN plate.
Top Gear America, the franchise’s second swing directly at the U.S. market, officially airs next month and the first trailer is finally here. The good news is that it looks like Top Gear. The bad news might be that it looks like Top Gear.
