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.
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that's actually important — all in one place at 9:00 AM. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn't your time more important?
With gas prices at $7,50 a gallon, it doesn't make too much sense to have an American car in Europe. I guess that's why Detroit tries to sneak into the old continent with Chryslers rebadged as Lancias these days.
The grass is always greener for car enthusiasts, and Americans always lust after the cars of Europe. We don't get a bunch of their excellent models, but we have a few things that Europeans can't get their hands on.
If you've ever traveled around Europe, then you're familiar with Ryanair. The Irish low cost airline has a fleet of 300 Boeing 737-800s, and gets thousands of people from European point A to European point B every day.
