Last week, I got a hugely positive response to the Found Around Town feature from last weekend on the '68 Rolls-Royce with a Chevy 350 V8. Most of you folks were all for putting an American V8 into an old-school British luxobarge if that's what it takes to keep it on the road.
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 week, Jalops and Jalop-ettes, I want you to tell us about cars whose reputations are overblown in your book.
I've got a fun Question of the Weekend lined up for you guys this time — and hopefully, one that will be pretty easy to answer. Just name the top five cars you'd put in your garage if you had unlimited funds, and why you'd have them.
A few weeks ago, we asked you folks what discontinued car needed to make a modern day comeback. Now we're going in the opposite direction: what car deserves to never, ever see the light of day again?
We all love driving, but we have to start somewhere. How did you learn to drive?
We've got a lot of good things going for us here in America, like religious freedom and rap music. But we get cheated out of a lot of really great cars.
When I do my "Found Around Town" stories, I like to rag on all of the Prius drivers and cyclists here in Austin. Recently however, I've also seen a ton of Fiat 500s driving around the city. That's fine by me. I think it's great to see the 500 back in action, especially in the hopped-up Abarth guise.
People are nuts out there, man. A driver's license doesn't guarantee someone isn't a total psychopath. Jalopnik editor-in-chief Matt Hardigree got a taste of that when he ran into a pack of angry Virginia rednecks while roadtripping in the new 911 Carrera S.
It's a simple question that gets a different answer from everyone: What's the greatest car you've ever driven?
Lately, fellow Jalops, your humble author has found himself increasingly perturbed by these constantly rising gas prices. My WRX averages about 21 mpg on premium gas. Not as bad as it could be, but not exactly cheap either.
Like any profession, there are good and bad mechanics out there. The worst experience I've ever had with one was when I paid a shop to change my transmission fluid. The only problem was while they took the old fluid out, they didn't put new fluid in. (It happens way more than you think.)
If our cars could talk, what would they say? I think if mine had a voice, it would scream "NO! NOT YOU! NOT YOOUUUUU!" whenever I walked up to it with a box of tools.
Blame it on our love of all things station wagon, but after stumbling across this custom Cadillac station wagon we couldn't stop thinking about the wagons that should have been.
One of the great things about the automotive world is the fact there is no shortage of different kind of cars to learn about. With this in mind we want to know what car previously unexplored car you are currently the most intrigued by.
One of the most interesting parts of the automotive world is the variety of different ways a life spent obsessed with cars can manifest itself. From high end car shows to low buck garage bastardization, all car lovers channel their passion in different ways.
Spend as much time thinking about cars as we do and it seems only natural to start using specific vehicular traits to describe idiosyncrasies of people, places and things that have little to do with cars.
The automobile is not designed to fly. Sure, it might seem like an obvious statement but Hollywood stunt drivers, rednecks on YouTube and various high flying motorsports have all done their best at times to convince us otherwise.
Even though the first official day of summer is still over three weeks away, Memorial Day weekend has always signified the beginning of the season for us. With this in mind, we wanted to take a look at the ideal summer vehicle with a twist.
