Marines Declare F-35B Operational, But Is It Really Ready For Combat?

The Marine Corp has declared initial operational capability for their first squadron of F-35Bs. The announcement is seen by some as more of PR achievement as the aircraft still has years of testing ahead of it. Others will argue that it represents a major accomplishment for the beleaguered F-35 program. But regardless… » 7/31/15 5:20pm 41 minutes ago

Clarkson, Hammond, And May's New Show Is At Least A Year Out

Ever since Top Gear as we knew it went off the air, everyone wanted to know where we’d see Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond end up next. Ever since we heard they’d be going to Amazon, we wanted to know when. Executive Producer Andy Wilman just dropped the news, and it’s a ways off. We’re talking Autumn… » 7/31/15 4:49pm Today 4:49pm

Everyone Just Shut Up And Let This Man Keep His Plane In His Driveway

Maybe this says a lot about me, but most of the time when people use the term ‘eyesore,’ I either have no idea what they’re talking about, or it’s directed at me. In this case, the term is being used to refer to an Oceanside, Long Island man’s small airplane, which is parked in his driveway. Neighbors want him to get… » 7/31/15 4:27pm Today 4:27pm

Stop Buying Cheap Used Sports Cars And Expecting Them To Be Perfect

In life, the curmudgeons and pessimists who think of themselves as realists will regurgitate the tired trope of “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” While it is true that cheap steak may include some gristle, it could potentially be the best steak you’ve ever had. But you could also choke on it. » 7/31/15 4:02pm Today 4:02pm

The Weakest Truck In This Diesel Throwdown Has 1190 LB-FT Of Torque

You may have heard diesel pickups can put down gargantuan power with pretty basic modifications. With fully built engines and watermelon-sized turbos, some these babies are hitting over 2,000 Lb-Ft. Watch ‘em race and squeeze through obstacle courses towing construction equipment! » 7/31/15 3:32pm Today 3:32pm

Peter Egan on the Unironic Appeal of Ginormous American Land Yachts 

You know Peter Egan. You’ve been reading him for years. The man was always fiddling with a TR-3 or a Lotus Elan or a Morgan 4/4, and writing with a gallows-hued wit about fiddling with said tiny, fussy things. He’d drag home the stray, sad British thing and make it right, even if it did fall apart three times on the… » 7/31/15 3:14pm Today 3:14pm

Why Do Center Display Screens Look Like They’re Just Tacked On?

Hello, everyone! Today is an extra special day, because it’s Friday, and that means it’s time for your favorite, and my favorite, and everyone’s favorite Jalopnik column, Letters to Doug. Tomorrow is also an extra special day because it’s Colorado Day, which means the local DMV employees will probably bring in… » 7/31/15 3:00pm Today 3:00pm

Truly I Say To You Today That Bono Is An Asswipe

At the intersection of all the annoying things a rock star can be—messianic, pretentious, vapid, dumb, old, creatively bankrupt, grandiose, utterly bereft of self-awareness, calcified into a grotesque oily wire-rack-in-the-grocery-store knockoff of himself, part of U2, et cetera—there sits Bono in his stupid housefly… » 7/31/15 2:53pm Today 2:53pm

Jet Boat VS 115 Horsepower Tricycle: What Gets Around Manhattan Faster?

The lights and smells of Manhattan ensnare millions of humans every year, and if you’ve been you know the joint is always an adventure to get around. Watch two bad haircuts race a pair of powersports machines around the island to find out what’s the, uh, “best” vehicle for the trip. What could go wrong? » 7/31/15 2:15pm Today 2:15pm

2016 Cadillac CTS-V: A Glorious 640 HP Exercise In Overkill

I’m coming into this review pretty conflicted. Not about the car — the new Cadillac CTS-V is an extremely impressive vehicle, and I’ll cover why in plenty of detail — I’m conflicted about what this car actually means both to Cadillac and to us Americans, as people. It’s not bad, necessarily — well, here, we’ll just… » 7/31/15 1:30pm Today 1:30pm
