Watch A 900 Horsepower Miata Dodge The Walls At 140 MPH

This 9-second RB26-powered Miata overheated on the Sacramento drag strip, spilling coolant onto the rear tire and spinning out in the middle of a pass. Somehow, the driver saved it from wrecking on the narrow barriers. » 7/24/12 1:00pm 7/24/12 1:00pm

This Is The New Best Mugshot Ever

Jesse James Thomas surpasses Michelle Watson who upset cocaine-swallowing Art Taylor for best mugshot, partially because of his drunken face but also because of the story. » 3/28/12 5:30pm 3/28/12 5:30pm

Kings Rookie Donté Greene Foolishly Screws With Bobby Jackson's…

The Goddess of Tenth Street

Yesterday we took in a showing of Paris, je t'aime at the Crest Theatre in Sacramento. Despite the preponderance of trees in California's seat of government, Sackamenna is not exactly Gay Paree, nevertheless, our Francophile self was flabbergasted when we walked down 10th Street for a cup of tea and saw this battered… » 7/09/07 5:45pm 7/09/07 5:45pm

It's The Sacramento Autorama! In July!

The boys over at Rod & Custom hit the Sacramento Autorama last February and came back with shots of sleds of all stripes. Oddly enough, the Autorama was where we saw our first in-the-Kevlar-and-Lexan Ferrari F40 when we were but a simple and unformed Jalopnik of twelve.

Natomas Party People Left Out of Highway Funds Allocation, Old-Timers…

The Sacramento Autorama

But that said, our Sacto-native, multiple-Deuce-owning uncle Noel couldn't believe it when we told him that we'd most likely never move… » 9/01/06 8:30pm 9/01/06 8:30pm

The Streets of Sacramento: Tradesmanamino!

You know, we're really not especially fond of our hometown of Sacramento. Sure, there're a few good things about it, but really, we couldn't wait to get out of the place at 18, and we'll hopefully never end up back there. Plus, it's expensive and congested now, too — two things it never used to be. But one great… » 5/17/06 4:31pm 5/17/06 4:31pm

Bernie Makes the Dumb List!

Whoo! We're just chock full o' Bernie Ecclestone today! CNN/Money's posted Business 2.0's list of 2005's "101 Dumbest Moments in Business," and Little B's infamous quote on Danica Patrick's fourth-place at Indy made the list! » 1/26/06 8:17pm 1/26/06 8:17pm
