I've been wondering about how I should feature Josh Clason's work on Jalopnik. I first came across his Depth of Speed series when it started in 2011, and after he produced two fantastic seasons under that umbrella, his returned with something even better: the Petrolicius videos.
Have you ever wanted to hear the specs of all the 2008 hybrid cars on sale with snappy music in the background? Who am I kidding, of course you have!
Two gauges, some Dymo, a medium-sized tach, a steering wheel with zero buttons: this is how simple the Porsche 917/30’s cockpit was. Then again, with 1,500 hp on tap, maybe it’s best not to multitask.
Thanks to modern safety advances, Top Fuel drag racing champion Antron Brown walked away from his car exploding at 300 miles per hour and crashing multiple times into concrete retaining barriers.
Driving while drowsy is incredibly dangerous, yet we never really think of it like distracted driving or drunk driving. This tattoo will make you think differently.
There are a few pieces of car engineering that are immediately evocative of particular time periods: dual-clutch transmissions bring to mind recent sports and super cars. Carburetors remind us of vintage racecars. Split-windows necessarily refer to pre-World War II family sedans. Or do they?
Driving is great. So is sex. Mixing the two is a bad plan. And where else but in Florida would an affectionate motorist couple step forward to serve as an example why.
One of the most striking things an American will notice on India's highways is how almost all their cargo seems to be transported by these lavishly decorated and slightly ramshackle large trucks. They're everywhere, often overloaded to twice their normal height, and barrelling down the road with a gleeful disregard…
If we take the headline gist of the NY Times article – Tesla Model S Bricks in travel from DC to Boston – then yes @TeslaRoadTrip and XanderWalker proved him wrong. If you really get into the article though, there are issues that XanderWalker barely touches on that are not disproven, and more so when you learn more…
Last week, a Polish truck driver was stopped in Germany for driving an Iveco flatbed loaded up with another flatbed truck carrying a VW-MAN truck carrying a Mercedes.
There's a good chance that a surveillance satellite is taking pictures of your neighborhood right now, but you'll never know it's there. It's way too high above the Earth's surface to be seen by the naked eye. But there's something here on the ground that helped develop those satellites into the highly precise…
If you ever find yourself lost behind enemy lines with no hope of getting past the bad guys, over the lines, and to the safety of your own people, you're pretty well stuffed. For military pilots, this scenario is a distinct possibility. That's why the Air Force has crews of pararescue jumpers to fly into all sorts of…
Honda, you used to be one of my favorite automakers in the world. In a world of boring Toyotas, you were an exciting alternative. But somewhere in the last decade you forgot all of that. It makes me sad, and Honda, you're better than that.
Who’s most qualified to review the Ducati 1199 Panigale S? A racer? A journalist? How about the guy who departed on a 15,000-mile, seven-month, coast-to-coast (and back) road trip the day he bought one? Dennis Matson did just that, then authored this review.
My family and I flew up to Dayton for a couple of days to check out the Air Force Museum. When we arrived we signed up for the presidential hangar bus trip and I signed up as a standby for the restoration facility tour. They only get 44 people over there once a week, so this was a rare opportunity. Amazingly enough I…
