Sometimes it’s not easy being an ’80s and ’90s car enthusiast. Many car shows still cut eligibility at 1973. Cars and Coffees often devolve into supercar one-upmanship and dyno sheet saber rattling. Aftermarket support for restoration varies while available modifications often erase all vestiges of period correct…
Every year, innumerable wealthy Americans descend upon the Pebble Beach golf course happily believing that they’re at the most expensive, luxurious, glamorous car show in the world. Bah. They’re all wrong. The real action is at Villa d’Este on Lake Como.
America’s obsession with air-cooled Porsches has climbed from a hippie appreciation to yuppie objectification to big-money speculation and now virtually religious fixation. Luftgekühlt is its newest tent revival, America’s most obsessive car show.
Join an Aussie drifter named Alexi as he walks around the Mooneyes Street Car Nationals- a massive hot rod show that goes down in Tokyo every year. The parking lot is thick with muscle cars, but it gets a whole lot more interesting than that.
Shit got extremely real for 19-year-old Tahj Turnley after he nearly lost it into a crowd leaving the Nashville Cars and Coffee last month. He is now facing a felony charge for reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.
Spring is here! The trees are budding, the birds are singing, and people are acting a fool leaving car shows and getting their asses handed to them. Even vintage Morgan owners can’t be counted out.
I can’t think of any automotive television show as universally enjoyed among gearheads of all types than Wheeler Dealers. Unusually for me, I know exactly why this is: the show’s genial mechanic, Edd China. Unfortunately, Edd’s time with the very popular show is coming to an end, but, true to Edd form, it’s for good…
A strange yellow Honda S2000-shaped Ford Mustang crashed while leaving a local car show in Connecticut over the weekend, mystifying car experts everywhere.
This past weekend, I went to a local Volkswagen car show in Raleigh, NC, mostly to hunt for a set of heat exchangers for my car, because I’m so tired of being cold. While there, not only did I get my heat exchangers ($10 each!) I also encountered several things that defy rational explanation. Small mysteries, but…
A video making rounds on the interwebs shows two kids engaged in a fierce rap battle at what looks like a car meet. After the first one spits his rhymes, the second utters five words that send the crowd roaring.
H2O International is a gigantic annual car show in Maryland that’s known for three things: 1) the world’s lowest and most ridiculously built show cars all in one place, 2.) hoonage and debauchery that makes a frat party look tame, and 3.) more ticketing and impounding by Ocean City Police Department than you can ever…
I feel like, at some point in everyone’s life, we’ve known people like this. People who seem to find truth and lies exist indistinguishable spectrum of ideas. People for whom lying isn’t just easy but simply part of the process of speaking. People like this proud man, owner of a 610 horsepower Challenger with some…
Someone revved the living crap out of a Ford GT race car at the Concours d’Elegance of America, and I was right there behind the exhaust pipe recording while simultaneously having an eargasm. Prepare to hear the most beautiful sound that has ever entered your cochleas.
This past weekend at the St. John’s Golf Course in Plymouth, I bore witness to the 38th annual Concours d’Elegance of America, and even after a few days of recovery, I’m only now regaining my ability to even. Have a look at the cars in these photos and you’ll understand.
If you want to see the closest thing to a Transformer in real-life, look no further than the lowrider scene. Some of these insane builds will bounce so high onto their back wheels that they look like a weenie dog begging for treats.
When you’re an employee at a company that builds supercars, everyone will be paying attention to what you drive. Koenigsegg’s employees must be aware of this, because their car choices seem inspired. Oh, and at least one of them has the best cheap car carpeting solution I’ve ever seen.
Last weekend the L.A. Summer Concours put about $50 million worth of exotics on the pavement outside Los Angeles’ Staples Center. For $250 a ticket you could walk among them and eat some fancy food, but if you missed the shindig you can still drool on the cars in this little gallery.
As the Baja gets reassembled, I can’t help but get pumped to drive it up to Wicked Big Meet this Sunday. This will be my third year going, and this time I’ll be covering the event for Jalopnik.
Today marks the first “LA Summer Concours” event in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Since only a few hundred folks were allowed to buy $250 event tickets, we’ll take you on our own little tour of the $50 million showroom.
