I know that "technically" the people in this video are "professional" "storm chasers," and that "technically" they "know what they're doing," but by golly I can't fathom anything that would make me want to drive straight towards these whirling vortices. That's nuts.
If you're going to steal a car you've never driven before, it's a good idea to know how to drive stick, just in case. The three teenagers who carjacked Jebelle Yaunk's Honda CRX didn't and made fools of themselves as they fumbled helplessly.
Looks like Nebraska road crews either suck at communicating or are happily screwing with the state's drivers. A Jalopnik reader spotted this confusing pair of speed signs on I-80 in Western Nebraska this week.
For some reason Nebraska is the place to be this July if you are in the market for a project car. We told you last month about the 200 car junkyard being auctioned July 17 in Maxwell, Nebraska. While browsing Hemmings this past week we came across another 150 car auction of one man's project cars that will be sold…
Two 17-year-old twins in Omaha, Neb., had big plans for their first drag race in their hardtail SuperComp this weekend — until the car and its trailer were stolen from an Omaha lot.
It is not, apparently, illegal to drive while naked in Nebraska as long as "no one is alarmed." Sadly, 32-year-old Nickolus Borgman figured out a way to alarm many, many people in the Lincoln area with his nude-driving antics.
William Parminter of Lincoln, Neb., drove away from the Lancaster County Courthouse Friday after a hearing for his eighth driving while intoxicated charge. Problems: His license was suspended, he was sipping a Keystone Light and his blood alcohol was .238.
You got a little taste of the gasser action at Mid-America Motorplex a couple weeks back, but the great vintage drag racing machinery went well beyond guardrail-scrapin' Anglias!
After 35 LeMons races, a Volkswagen has finally taken the overall win! With a small field due to the usual first-time-at-new-track deal, the race for the win on laps became a Supra-versus-Golf affair early on.
A Nebraska car collector has been charged with avoiding sales taxes on 150 vehicles in his private collection. Nebraska State Troopers say Mark Pieloch, 52, will turn himself in on one felony charge of tax evasion. [ConcoursBlog.com]
The Mutually Assured Destruction Of Omaha 24 Hours of LeMons race is over. The cars are on the trailers, heading home, and I'm at the Omaha airport doing the same. Finally, a Volkswagen has taken an overall LeMons win!
Saturday was a long, sweaty, buggy racing session at the Mutually Assured Destruction Of Omaha LeMons, with engines nuking head gaskets all day long.
I spent the last week on vacation in Wisconsin, but now it's work time: busting cheatin' racers at the Mutually Assured Destruction Of Omaha LeMons race! Here's one of the first things we saw upon entering the state of Nebraska.
This series features plenty of junked vehicles in not-so-frozen California, but we're really missing out on the full junkyard experience by not visiting Omaha!
One of our resident reviewers proved you can go home again by getting some action from Jean Jennings. No, not like that. Austin went back to his old Automobile boss and picked up a gig driving an Impala solely on E85 from Michigan to the Coors brewery in Golden, where they not only brew beer, but manufacture ethanol.…
We're waiting for the Rob Halford tribute art car, covered in studs with an oversided leather-daddy cap mounted on the roof and windshield-sized aviator shades. And of course, it would need a really big, pink-hi-temp-coated turbocharger. But while we're waiting, Nebraskans are acting on other fronts, presenting a…
As one of the largest corn-producing states in the Union, the state government of Nebraska feels compelled to run its vehicles on ethanol blends. However, when the price of the fuels skyrocketed recently, a memo went out to the state's vehicle-using employees to run whatever was cheapest cost-per-mile-wise, E85 or…
As the teams first pulled into Chicago, there were conflicting reports as to whether the Magnaflow RS4 driven by Stefan Johannson and Prince Malik came in first or the RENNTech CL600 of Team Reicke came in in the lead position. The Reicke boys, Jay Reicke and Byron Burkhardt, were the confirmed first-placers, rolling…
