I have never owned a car, and since my driver’s license expired at the beginning of this year, I have yet to have enough cause to motivate me to renew it. So, going by my personal experience, all I can really recommend when it comes to driving through Europe is that you should find a nice man who is both an…
After evaluating the Eurofighter Typhoon, Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet and Lockheed Martin F-35 as Denmark’s next primary fighter jet, the country’s government is recommending the F-35 “unequivocally” as superior in “strategic, military, economic, and industrial aspects.” Is this a needed win for this troubled jet?
The sixth-gen model was the first Mustang designed to compete in the European market. After five decades of forbidden fruit, the Europeans finally get their American freedom-machine, and boy are they liking it. Especially Germany, where the pony out-sold all other sports cars last month.
As much as everyone is getting excited about Google’s cute little autonomous cars, self-driving trucks are the most obvious—and probably easiest—beneficiaries of autonomous tech. To prove this, a “platoon” of connected trucks from six brands completed a 1,300 mile trip across Europe.
Yeah, you know you can’t. Don’t even try it. Just watch.
Sometimes we forget just how chaotic Europe’s geopolitical past was. Long before the Nazis or the Soviet Union caused great shifts in the balance of power, endless conflicts shifted the continent’s borders time and time again. When put in perspective, empires rose and fell in the blink of an eye. This awesome…
It’s official, Russia has deployed tactical fixed-wing jets, supposedly Su-27s Flanker derivatives, along with attack helicopters, to Syria as part of its rapidly expanding outpost there. Meanwhile the chief of the U.S. Air Force in Europe wants a permanent F-22 presence in the region.
The 2015 Ford Mustang: now with 70 percent more V8 and save-the-manuals approved. Well, in Europe at least.
Russia has said it will greatly increase its fighting capability along its border with NATO countries — including the deployment of tactical ballistic missiles — if the U.S. follows through with its plan to store tanks, artillery and other equipment at forward staging areas in Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and the Baltic…
From someone who still doesn’t entirely know how.
As part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, the ballooning "theater security package" aimed at bolstering NATO strength and deterring Russian aggression, 12 F-15C Eagles and about 200 airmen from the Florida Air National Guard will be deploying to the Netherlands and Bulgaria.
Best as in completely f*cking stupid, if not borderline insane. As promised in my first post on Oppo I would like to tell you about my journey of bringing an old, neglected Lincoln Mark VIII LSC back on the road, and how I plan to make it my permanent daily driver.http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/first-post-on-...
The USAF will be pulling out of Royal Air Force bases Mildenhall, Alconbury and Molesworth, among other smaller base closures across Europe. Is it time to stop subsidizing Europe's protection or are we underestimating the threat from Russia?
By Gabor Vajda– Mixing the countryside, the morning dew and mist with the sights, sounds and scent of sideways rally cars is intoxicating. This was one of those moments.
After one year of experimental operation, social services in Switzerland are calling the "sex drive-in" in Zürich "a success." They're saying it's allowed for better regulation of prostitution which in turn has made the situation safer for people on both ends of sexual transactions.
On a hapless quest through the internet for pictures of a "Cadillac boat," a reader stumbled across someone's long-neglected home-made custom job. It's a pink 1970something Cadillac, stretched into the shape of a guitar with fighter jet tail fins topping it of. What?
Renault raised a few eyebrows with its single-passenger Twizy Cargo microvan last year, but just proved they can still build a hauler that's sleek and useful with the redesigned Trafic.
China deserves all the congratulations in the world for landing its first spacecraft on the Moon. It's a big deal – both for China and humanity at large. But can somebody please explain why the background image at this exhibit for China's recently deployed Yutu Rover depicts a massive mushroom cloud over Europe?
Cars are expensive. They're expensive to buy, expensive to insure, expensive to store, expensive to maintain, and expensive to crash. Bicycles are none of those things. And bikes outsell cars almost everywhere in Europe. Shocker.
