We all like our jobs to be straightforward. Sometimes we even get into a routine, or fall on our own reliance on technology. Maybe that’s not always for the best.
You know my thoughts on not feeling bad if your car isn’t the top shelf model. Here’s another piece of advice: don’t be too steadfast in your beliefs. Be open to new experiences.
So, uh, how was your day today, fellow American citizen?
Earlier today our chief junkyard-dwelling correspondent Jason Torchinsky found a most miserably worked-over pile of wreckage and tried to see if anybody might guess what kind of car it used to be. Amazingly, one of you (pretty much) nailed it!
Today we got to talking about 90s and 2000s nostalgia, and the relentless extreme-lifestyle optimism that came with it. And also, cars that tried so aggressively to be cool that they achieved perfect lameness.
We had some interesting amateur engineering dialog over what Toyota was trying to accomplish with its strange “assisted manual transmission.”
The office was talking about the Fast & Furious franchise earlier today (we recast the first one with our staff), we all realized how much it would suck to have been Jesse, who got killed off before the franchise went out to be one of the biggest in the world for some reason.
We can all laugh at Conor Daly for running out of gas in his everyday commuting, but it could be a sign of a dangerous illness—there’s a time to get your head in the game, but you have to be able to get it back out.
It doesn’t really seem like neighborhoods have too many block parties or other community events these days. Well apparently you can just buy the street in San Francisco and do whatever you want, so pay up and just throw your own parties.
We’re looking for the cars. Can you hear us?
If ever comes a time you find yourself imprisoned in the barriers of your mind, take these words and hold a better cornering line.
Today I regaled you with a story of a shockingly complex “quick fix”, and of course, somebody came swinging through the comments with a way better solution.
The Lockheed U-2 is a seriously cool plane. It’s super light and can fly at altitudes of 70,000 feet. And it needs fast cars to help it land and take off.
Cadillac is in a tizzy about having all of these lovely sedans that nobody will buy, and their solution is to cut down a model and jumble up their alphabet. Some have suggested a return to traditional model names, but even that could go too far.
We sparked some debate after saying the 2017 Dodge Challenger V6 AWD feels like a muscle car. Feels like and is are not the same thing, but in today’s era of safety regulations and small-displacement, what really earns the right to be likened to big-block beasts of your dad’s day?
In the race for affordable electric cars, GM has been making a lot of noise about how it was able to get the Chevy Bolt to market before Tesla’s Model 3. Little do people know that this follows a tradition of GM beating Tesla to the punch.
Today we were talking “best names for engines” and well, you might not think the basic letter-and-number ones would be the funniest but don’t worry, this is where our commenters come to shine.
I had a lot on my mind when I drove the new 2017 Acura NSX, and what I wanted to say about it. I’m a huge fan of the original, but I wondered how much I wanted to dive into a story that’s so well-told—Ayrton Senna, aluminum, VTEC, all that shit. Doesn’t everyone know that by now?
Sometimes even we learn something on this blog from our extremely knowledgeable commenters, and today was one of those days. Did you know that snorkels on trucks were originally designed to keep the intake free of dust, not water?
