Chopped and Dropped

It was a scorching hot August summer day in the San Fernando Valley. I was driving my brand new 1991 Ford Escort GT through an industrial area to a muffler shop. A friend of mine told me that they could lower my car for sixty bucks. I pulled into the work bay and a guy with a welding helmet climbed down into the pit… » 2/25/13 4:36pm 2/25/13 4:36pm

This Honduran Subaru Nut Writes Awesome How-To Manuals

When you own an old, no-longer-popular beater car, it can sometimes be difficult to find parts and information. My brand of automotive pain/pleasure currently lies in the realm of obsolete Subarus, and while they do have a decent following, they've never attracted the kind of money-spewing fanboys that, say, small… » 2/25/13 2:23pm 2/25/13 2:23pm

2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible: The Jalopnik Review

These Guys Are Turning Dead Cars Into Living Bikes

Normally, seeing a video'd junkyard crammed full of hulks of vintage Citroëns and Fiat 600s makes me want to hop on a plane and save each and every one of them like some soft-hearted kook at the animal shelter. That's generally not possible, but what these folks over at Lola Madrid are doing with these basket-case… » 2/25/13 12:00pm 2/25/13 12:00pm

This Could Be the Year You Quit Wasting 91,980 Minutes Behind the Wheel

Each year the average American spends 1,533 hours driving a car — 64 full days of getting from point A to point B. That's equivalent to watching every episode of Breaking Bad 32.6 times (don't put it past me). As a driver, it's your duty to own this potential, and lots of car companies are already willing to help you… » 10/30/14 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

Help Write the Forza Horizon 2 Travel Guide, Win an Xbox One and an HDTV

Okay, Europe is pretty awesome as a travel destination, but it has its difficulties. It's expensive to get there, communicating with the locals can be difficult, and even if blazing around the hairpin turns of the Amalfi Coast didn't already present the serious possibility of death, what's the point if you can't do it… » 10/27/14 12:00pm Monday 12:00pm
