Most car names are nouns. A Note. A Mustang. A Probe. Sometimes they're proper nouns and named after places you'd probably never see such a car driven, like the Sorento. Occasionally, you'll get something that can be a verb, like the Juke. All words that make sense in English. And then you get names that are utter…
Every space mission is exceedingly ambitious, but Jalopnik readers know ten that stand above the rest, even if they never got off the ground.
Remember last year when we told you about the Texas State Trooper who shot at a truck full of illegal immigrants from a helicopter, killing two people inside? Yeah, they're not allowed to do that anymore.
Just look at it! Red leatherette, an aluminum shifter knob, a bit of chrome and fake wood here and there, a lovely three-spoke steering wheel and two massive dials telling you what's the deal. Carlo Abarth knew how to rock.
I'm going to go ahead and postulate that this won't buff right out.
We've seen development mules of the next small Jeep crossover/SUV parading around for months. In our minds it was the 2014 Liberty, just wearing an Alfa Romeo Giulietta body but was also a good bit taller. Through these exclusive photos we've learned two things. First, it won't look anything like an Alfa. Second, it…
If you've ever been in a Walmart, then you've seen those little mobility scooters that help disabled folks get around. You've probably also wanted to steal one yourself and take a little joyride. Well, one Indianapolis-area man got drunk, stole one of those scooters, and took a joyride. For six miles.
Two no-thrills eco hatchbacks for the European market. Which one would you take?
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we'll provide the jams.
Historically, Creole meant native born rather than foreign born. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Caddy-van is claimed to honor its builders heritage, but will its price have you going native?
How do you sell a kit car based off of a VW Beetle with a Corvair engine back in 1969? Get a pretty blonde model and make one hilariously out-of-touch brochure.
That may seem like a funny headline, but this story is extremely unfortunate. A jury in Dallas this week ordered a strip club to pay a woman's family $10.5 million after the club over-served one of their patrons, a man who then ran her over with his lifted truck.
Down in that wide, brown valley, 13,000 feet above sea level, begins the Chinese portion of the Karakoram Highway, the epic road connecting Pakistan with China. The two huge mountains on the horizon are 24,757-ft Muztagh Ata and 25,095-ft Kongur. What’s the coolest road you’ve spotted from a plane window?
Bowl season can be the worst, especially if you don't care about college football or your team has been kind of crappy the last few years. (I'm a Texas fan, I know what I'm talking about.) So some gearheads out in Sausalito, California have figured out a solution to this: the Anti-Football Run, and it's been going on…
A case of road rage ended suddenly when the gun-weilding aggressor noticed that he forgot to set the parking brake and had to chase after his runaway car.
The other day the Atlantic ran a photo piece about the remarkable DIY weaponry of the Syrian rebels, and, as always, it was impressive. There's a lot of hard work and ingenuity going into these improvised weapons. Of course, one of the most interesting was the Sham 2 armored car/light tank vehicle that we've covered…
There are 14 female co-drivers on the entry list for the 100 Acre Wood rally. That's one out of every 4.5 co-drivers. Pretty damn cool if you ask me.
