James May, formerly of Top Gear, currently of BBC Four’s James May The Reassembler, and soon to be on New Car Show On Amazon Starring The Old Top Gear Guys, is doing an AMA on Reddit right now. Ask him anything.
You've got questions. Elon Musk has answers. And tonight, the co-founder of Tesla, CEO of Space X, and the closest thing we've got to Thomas Edison-Henry Ford-Da Vinci hybrid is taking to Reddit tonight at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT for an Ask Me Anything session. What do you want to know?
Recently, AskReddit asked the ultimate question of a little-understood, massively maligned subculture: "PT Cruiser owners, what tragedy burdened you with your car?" Here are the best of the replies.
This weekend was supposed to be a fairly uneventful weekend for Tesla, as weekends for Tesla go. They weren't being banned from sale, and nothing caught fire. But the ever-present specter of Subreddit Drama lurked, as always. And since it's Reddit, pretty much everything else got dragged through the mud, too.
A New England car dealership is under fire after a Reddit user claimed today that they refuse to award his friend a 2014 Ford Fusion he won in a hole-in-one contest while dressed in a dog costume. Sounds like this story just went to the dogs! (Get it?) (Update: The dealer caved. See below.)
In 1942, a military blimp left for a routine submarine spotting mission. A few hours later, it crashed back on land with no one onboard. It was dubbed "The Ghost Blimp" and it looks like Reddit just laid the mystery to rest.
Earlier this week Ford took the brave and forward-thinking step of having their chief F-150 engineer, Jackie DiMarco, do an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit. It did not end well for her or Ford.
This is one of those strange infinite regression things. Well, infinite if infinite equals two. A guy driving on the 55 freeway outside of Chicago took a picture of a DeLorean driving in front of a truck fire. The guy in the DeLorean, at that same moment, was taking a picture of the same truck fire. They found each…
Jackie DiMarco, Chief Engineer for the Ford F-150, is doing an iAMA over on Reddit. Ask away, just don't make every question about the Ranger.
You know that one movie? The one that had a car in it? Reddit does.
In perhaps one of the most Bidenesque moments ever, the Corvette-loving real Vice President of the United States Joe Biden called out the fake Trans-Am-loving version of himself from The Onion, who at this moment is giving a real fake iAMA on Reddit. If you're from 1990 and are browsing Jalopnik through a wormhole on…
What would we do without wedges? We wouldn't be able to split firewood so easily and doors would be slamming all the time. But in some cases, the wedge isn't so great; like when a wedge-shaped car crashes into the back of the car in front of it.
We expect 4chan to be a good place to meet bronies and possible sexual deviants, but not a place to get reasonable car-buying recommendations. It turns out their advice is actually not terrible.
Jeremy Clarkson's daughter, Emily, is 18 years old. She also has boobs. The people on Reddit's r/TopGear have capitalized on both these features, creeping out over what appears to be a self-posted pic of Emily and her cleavage.
That rule that you can only bring three ounce bottles through airport security is really annoying, but it's been a fact of life for years now. So what do you do with a 1.75-liter bottle of Smirnoff vodka you've "forgotten" to remove from your carry-on luggage?
This video from reddit is the most insane crash I've ever seen. The driver of one truck was utterly bulldozed by a huge semi and just popped out the windshield of his truck, completely unscathed. Is he just lucky, or is he part cat?
