'A Good Day To Die Hard' Destroyed 132 Vehicles Worth $11 Million

By all accounts, A Good Day To Die Hard is a terrible movie. But the stunts, well, there were a lot of them and they cost a fortune. Director John Moore decided that when it came to smashing expensive vehicles, it was time to go big or go home. » 2/19/13 10:18am 2/19/13 10:18am

Here's How People Drive When They're Really, Really Stoned

Now that marijuana is legal for recreational use in Colorado and Washington State, authorities need some way of deciding when a person is too stoned to drive.

In my first month with the Model S, my wife Jennie and our two kids have done what most car-owning NYC residents typically do: taken trips to New Jersey and Connecticut, parked in two feet of snow and slush and in various garages, driven it up and down between midtown, Chelsea Piers, and downtown on the streets and… » 2/19/13 9:18am 2/19/13 9:18am

For $3,950, Yo Quiero Roadmaster?

The term Rat, when applied to a car, implies a certain level of, how shall we say, rattiness that itself implies a focus on function over form. Despite its seller giving it that appellation, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Buick Roadmaster is more a whale than a rat, but would paying its price make you batty? » 2/19/13 8:00am 2/19/13 8:00am

This Is Automotive Storytelling At Its Best

I've been wondering about how I should feature Josh Clason's work on Jalopnik.

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. » 2/18/13 4:34pm 2/18/13 4:34pm

The Best Split-Window Coupes

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? » 2/18/13 4:15pm 2/18/13 4:15pm
