On Wednesday, Florida resident Jorge Jove clearly couldn’t stomach the sight of an AT&T work truck parked out front of his house. Naturally, police say, he retrieved a revolver and started shooting out the tires and engine.
These microfiber mitts are great for washing your car or dusting around the house, but they could also come in handy on Halloween for terrifying children as you hand out candy. They’re worth $6 either way, in my opinion.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know before the Lord returns to judge the quick and the dead.
It’s time to dig out and update the ol’ “why wasn’t this available when I was a kid?!’ list because buried in the day one Comic-Con news dump was this fantastic drivable X-34 Landspeeder from Radio Flyer that lets a pair of kids zoom across the sands at a blistering five miles per hour.
As the New York City subway system hurdles toward complete destruction, state leaders are cooking up some creative solutions. You see, allocating emergency relief toward the trains would be too easy.
I don’t know why the Lamborghini Diablo had any kind of advertising. The car sells itself. It has the doors. It has the sound. It has the looks. It has a V12 large enough to crush a small home. And yet, advertise it Lamborghini did.
Try to keep it together this morning.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
Just like mama bear in the Goldilocks tale, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe RX7 is just right—old enough to be a classic, but not too old to be a pain in the ass to drive. Let’s see if its price is fair to middling too.
This Amazon Gold Box is ostensibly meant as a back-to-school Thermos sale, but several items in there could appeal to adults who want to pack lunch for work.
In the highest levels of NASCAR, where pretty much every track is asphalt, being told to “race cleanly” usually just means “don’t wreck anybody if you can help it.” But when it’s time to run dirt, clean racing is something totally different—basically, bust out your nearest duster and get to it in the middle of the…
Help me out here, pals. While I love my co-workers here on the USS Jalopnuts, it has come to my attention that at least two of my co-workers are drooling simpletons who can’t wrap their puny, moist, palpitating brains around the idea that the front-mid engine layout is a thing. They’re idiots, right?
Last week, the state of Louisiana fined Elio Motors $545,000, saying the company is operating as a “manufacturer” and therefore should have a license to accept non-refundable deposits for its proposed three-wheeled ride. That’s not great.
It took President Donald Trump 55 minutes of a one-hour meeting last week to argue with aides that he didn’t want to re-certify America’s nuclear deal with Iran—an Obama-era deal he roundly condemned on the campaign trail—only to capitulate in the last five, The New York Times is reporting. Problem for Trump is that…
Formula One’s announcement to go to the halo shield to protect drivers won’t seem new at all to a select group of people that likely spend more on their gaming setups than whatever car they go pick up Doritos and Mountain Dew in once a month.
NASCAR usually runs on relatively tidy paved ovals, but not tonight. It’s time for the Race I Will Always Call The Mudsummer Classic To Annoy Baseball Hosers where the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series runs on Eldora Speedway’s dirt oval. It’s a whole race of NAS-trucks sideways on dirt, and it is wonderful.
When people talk about Mazda’s 13B twin-rotor Wankel engine, they tend to imagine lowered, twin-turbocharged FD RX-7s with giant wings and huge front splitters. But that 13B engine doesn’t get nearly enough credit for powering what has to be the greatest little bus of all time: the Parkway Rotary 26.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger Demon is an 840-horsepower purpose-built drag racing car that somebody snuck license plates on. But there’s a lot more to this machine than an enormous engine, and the whole package creates one of the most exciting and terrifying ten-second rides you can take.
