Hello, friends. Blessings upon you all. I trust that your summer is off to a wonderful start. Mine? Not so much, and that’s because I desperately want to get out there and make more Jalopnik videos. But we need your help to do it! Come work with us.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
It’s a Friday afternoon right before a holiday weekend. We’re taking it easy, just like you, and we’re blatantly stealing this idea from Deadspin. Kick back with us.
Since some of us are celebrating Mother’s Day on this fine Sunday, Jalopnik decided we’d spend time writing about or reading about our moms. Throughout the day, you’ll see blogs about moms on our homepage. We welcome you to read them, and to tell your stories about mom (or the person you call mom) as well!
The future is here! The future is here! Hey everyone, we’re being told the future is here!!!!!!!! Or at least it will be, with cars that drive themselves and automotive enthusiasts that are dead. We’re going to be yelling about that and other things today at the New York Auto Show, and you should see it.
It may seem like cars are only getting more and more normal. If this keeps up, will new cars ever be weird again? Come out to the New York Auto Show tonight and hear us yell about it on a live panel.
The very concept of driving will soon be dead, we’re told. But not if we have anything to do with it. To rage against the dying light, we (and a panel of experts) will be arguing full-throatedly about them this Saturday at the New York Auto Show. Come hang.
The cars, the roads, the entire transportation systems of tomorrow will be influenced by decisions and events of today. How exactly? That’s what we’re going to argue about, this Friday and Saturday, in two panels at the New York Auto Show. You should come through.
The Jalopnik Trivia night, held at the Jacob Javits Center last weekend at the New York Auto Show, was a roaring success. Because there was fun and laughter and car chatter. All of the best things to make up an evening!
Great news, everyone! So many of you RSVP’d for Jalopnik’s Car Trivia Night at the New York Auto Show—which is TONIGHT—that David Tracy’s Jeep miraculously started working again. Hooray! But still more of you should come so I can see your beautiful, shining faces.
After extensive research and roadside wrenching, at long last we’ve determined the reason David Tracy’s 1948 Jeep off-roading project has had so many problems: it’s because you are not coming to Jalopnik’s New York Auto Show trivia party on Saturday.
The day of reckoning is nigh. From 7-9 p.m. in the evening of Saturday, April 15, I will be hosting an automotive trivia night in (yes, in) the New York Auto Show. It’s going to be a fun one, not a punitive one where I yell at you for not knowing how many main bearings are in a Delage Grand Prix car. (There are nine.)
From 7-9 p.m. in the evening of Saturday, April 15, I will be hosting an all-things-automotive-and-also-things-that-are-tangentially-automotive-related trivia night in the very walls of the New York Auto Show. You should be there. If you don’t come I will be sad.
The time of trivia’ing is nigh: Jalopnik will be hosting a trivia night at the New York Auto Show this year. Come through and test your automotive knowledge then stick around for a tour with Jalopnik writers and car celebrities!
We apologize for the outage earlier. Jalopnik, like the other GMG sites and a huge chunk of the internet, was affected by today’s Amazon Web Services outage. We’re not back to 100 percent yet but are working to get there. Thanks for your patience.
Hello, my darlings. How are you? Have you been driving like champions every day, like I humbly suggest to you on a regular basis? It’s been so long since we’ve talked, you know, just you and me! I wanted to let you all know about some changes and openings around here at Jalopnik. Perhaps you’re even the person for…
Far-right populism is on the rise all over the globe. Traditional diplomacy is out. Machismo is in. Cyber warfare isn’t just theory, or a joke anymore. Wars are supranational. Nuclear arsenals are expanding, unless they aren’t. All of it needs to be covered, and it needs to be covered better.
