This is the story of why one of the most dominant race cars of the modern era, the IMSA GTO Audi 90 Quattro, had a little doll that mooned other racers.
If you’re like us Texans (who have been practically underwater in floods for the past few weekends—just check out Circuit of the Americas on Oct. 30), the skies in this photo are probably quite a relief for you. The car is pretty great, too.
Yesterday was John DeLorean's birthday. The man was a motoring icon for many reasons, though there's really only two things about him that anyone thinks of: cocaine and a certain time machine. I don't want to bring up the DMC-12 at all. Crap. I mean, not again. Let's focus on six other things DeLorean did.
Pontiac took its name from Chief Pontiac, a one-time leader of the Ottawa tribe. Conversely, today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ventura is chiefly Chevy Nova. It’s up to you however, to decide if this custom coupe’s price is chiefly a no-go.
Welcome to Found Around The District, where we highlight fascinating cars we find around a city where people are too busy fighting through traffic and hunting for parking to drive anything interesting: Washington, D.C.
Have you ever noticed that the term "import car" doesn't get tossed around like it used to? In these days of Toyotas from California, Volkswagens from Tennessee and Chevrolets from Canada, it's becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between a "foreign" and a "domestic" car.
Last weekend, I got some really interesting responses when I asked you what cars you thought were completely overrated. I say it's interesting because a lot of you have no love for some cars that are typically held in pretty high regard here on Jalopnik, like the E30 3-series, the Miata and even the NSX. To each his…
This apple-green 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO is now the most expensive car in the world. The 250 GTO is revered by Ferrari collectors as the bees knees, and a private sale last month broke all previous price records, proving how much people are willing to slobber over a piece of artistically crafted machinery.
When they aren't setting themselves on fire, it appears another one of the Ferrari 599's favorite past times is terrifying children. What sounds like the glorious wail of the 599 GTO's 670 horsepower six liter V12 to us appears to be only one thing to the kid taking a look at it—very very loud. [Brief NSFW language]
The Wall Street Journal published an article this past week showcasing one of the most innovative and interesting uses of prison labor we've ever heard about—restoring classic cars.
Volvo wagons aren't exactly the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think about a performance car, but this is no ordinary Volvo wagon. Underneath the hood of this 1997 Volvo V90 is the LS1 V8 from a 2004 Pontiac GTO.
When the far ahead of its time 1936 Cord 810 was introduced it changed the automotive landscape forever. One of the innovations featured on the 810 were the previously unseen standard hidden headlights (operated by crank), a feature that would be used on cars for decades afterwards. This weekend we want to know which…
These photos of a woman in a Lexus jumping a curb into a classic Pontiac Lemans and '40 Ford Roadster during a Southern California car show prove one thing definitively: your car is never truly safe from the beige plague. But what exactly happened here?
The ‘O' in GTO is for Omologato, Italian for homologated, which itself is derived from the Greek homologeo, or to agree. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe ‘06 Pontiac GTO is derived from the Aussie Holden, but is its price something upon which we all can agree?
Chef Grant Achatz built one of America's best restaurants on his talents with molecular gastronomy. After battling back from tongue cancer, his friends decided to give him a special gift: the 1970 Pontiac GTO he'd restored as a teenager.
If you need another reason to lust after the Ferrari 599 GTO this video provides several. Add the fact that the 599 GTO spits fire to the already long list of why we want one. (Hat tip to hoonthatsc!)
I'm all for driving your expensive 599 GTO instead of letting it languish and rot under a cover, but there are probably times you should park it in a garage. More at SWNS. (Photo: Peter Watt)
