A few weeks ago, I decided to give back to my readers by announcing that I’d be giving away a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta VR6 to the starry-eyed dreamer that gave me their best and most insane project ideas for the car. It was tough, but I’ve finally managed to narrow it down to 10 finalists. Your butts—hold on to ‘em.
The Navy already has a real attack laser that can burn planes out of the sky, which is terrifying enough. Now they’ve announced they’re going to test one that is five times as powerful.
The E36 M3: A masterpiece of engineering that could only have been created by the kind of mind able to focus on a singular purpose to the exclusion of all other consequences. Unfortunately, the example that I found had suffered unfathomable, intentional abuse at the hands of a ruthless tyrant that brought the engine…
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.
Pour some out for the American cousin of Top Gear and its affable hosts Rutledge Wood, Tanner Foust and Adam Ferrara. Tuesday night’s episode of Top Gear USA on the History Channel will be the show’s last—at least for now, and on that network.
Beware this new Los Angeles attraction if you’re afraid of heights. I know I am because nope.
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Let’s check off the bonafides of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Toyota truck, shall we? It’s a 4X4, it rocks the turbo 22RE and a five speed stick. Lastly, its a rare and funky Custom Cab, making it one long truck. Let’s see if its price has you longing for it to be cheaper.
Fast cars, elegant wallpapers. That’s what we’re all about here at Jalopnik, right? Right. Perhaps the first one is slightly higher up on the list, but hey—both are nice to have.
I spotted this lovely vintage BMW in Cape May, NJ. Of course, you must read the great David E. Davis Jr’s review of this car from the pages of Car and Driver in 1968 .
Sonoma Raceway proved once again why it’s one of the most interesting races on the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule. Holy crap, the last lap delivered.
Last week, I spent a few days driving the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Its semi-autonomous capabilities led to some discomfort—not due to their functioning, but due to the fact that I was behind the wheel of a car driving itself. It felt odd and futuristic, but, as it turns out, this movement started way back in the…
A nasty electrical fire took Clint Bowyer out early from today’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. Nothing has encapsulated the term “nope” more than Bowyer’s quick exit and helmet toss following this particularly grody-smelling car-b-que.
