Mean Mopar Streets: Harvey Keitel Versus David Proval!

We honored Harvey Keitel's Mean Streets ride in the Murilee's Movie Car Hall Of Fame, and there's no better way to start winding down Crash Week than to show that car getting violently destroyed, gangland-style! » 9/27/09 10:30am 9/27/09 10:30am

Ten Greatest American Police Patrol Cars

We're celebrating Independence Day with a week-long automotive Amerigasm heading down two diametrically opposite roads. The first, started yesterday, is a salute to the best car commercials — a celebration of the conspicuous over-consumption that made this nation great. The second road is one we'll be traveling at… » 7/01/08 12:30pm 7/01/08 12:30pm

Cleveland To Florida In A '65 Dodge

We've got John Lurie, Richard Edson (you may know him best as the Zappa-esque "Evil Valet Parker" in Ferris Bueller's Day Off), and Ezter Balint in a 1965 Dodge Coronet sedan with Screamin' Jay Hawkins on the tape deck. Yes, it's Jim Jarmusch's Stranger Than Paradise, which has some seriously Jalop-worthy road-trip… » 6/19/08 6:40pm 6/19/08 6:40pm

1966 Dodge Coronet 440 Convertible

Six months have passed since we last saw a Chrysler B-body in this series? Well, actually the '78 Monaco Brougham is technically a B-body, but it's so incredibly Malaise that I hesitate to include it alongside the likes of the Super Bee and the Road Runner. Regardless of where you stand on the B-ness of the Malaise… » 4/16/08 9:00am 4/16/08 9:00am

Dodge Coronet's Window Blinds Prove Ineffective At Warding Off Crusher

When you hear about a Malaise Era Dodge, most of the time it's a 1974 example, because that was the year of the Bluesmobile. That means that 1974 Chrysler C-body stands a much better chance of being cared for than a '73 B-body (thanks to those of you who pointed out my B/C-body screwup). Here's an example I spotted at… » 4/03/08 1:15pm 4/03/08 1:15pm

March Madness Narrowed To Sweet 16, Round 2 Of Voting Today

Well here we are, Round 2 of Jalopnik-style madness. After the first round of voting, we've eliminated half of the 32-car field. And there sure were some upsets; Parnelli Jones' Big Oly Bronco losing to some white Italian car being perhaps the most shocking. We even had a last minute buzzer-beater, with "Billy"… » 3/28/08 1:00pm 3/28/08 1:00pm

March Madness Begins, First Round Of Voting

Yesterday, we gave you the brackets. Today, the voting begins and Jalopnik-style March Madness ensues. If you haven't finalized your own bracket for the office pool just yet, hurry up! The field of 32 cars from the original 1974 film Gone In 60 Seconds is about to get narrowed down by your votes. At the end this… » 3/27/08 1:00pm 3/27/08 1:00pm

March Madness, Jalopnik Style

Interested in all the March madness tournament bracketry, but not really into college hoops? Maybe you're looking for a way to redeem yourself after penciling-in Duke to go all the way? Whatever the case, we've decided to throw our own Jalopnik-style bracket-madness party! Instead of basketball, we've got cars! And… » 3/26/08 1:30pm 3/26/08 1:30pm
