I once won my grade’s Easter-themed coloring contest in Elementary school. Why? Because I was the only one who used Easter colors. Anyway, Italdesign is holding a coloring contest of-sorts for its V10 off-road Parcour supercar concept that debuted three years ago. Go get your crayon box.
I’ll clarify this post first by just saying that one of the members of this band has been one of my best friends since I was 5 years old. So, yeah, this is a favor. Still, it’s car-related enough and it involves pictures of hood ornaments, so why not?

I'm driving a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 convertible this week. It has a 580-horsepower LSA motor under the hood. I imagine my fuel economy will be on the low side of dismal. Still, it will be fun.
The Jalopnik Mainframe, safely located in its airtight pod 75 feet below Gabe Kaplan's Hollywood Hills hot tub, has been working overtime for me, processing an algorithm telling me what the average Jalopnik reader loves more than anything.
