I went to Philadelphia on Saturday, and it was really hot. But, apparently, so were the cars.
Car people are insufferable nostalgists. It’s true! We glorify everything old and weird and full of character, but many times when we actually go to drive our motorized idols, they aren’t quite what we thought they’d be.
Everyone loves a good surprise, whether it’s a cake in the break room or a swift kick in the pants when you stab the go pedal in a car that looks like it came out of a rental lot. That’s why today I’m asking you to show me the best damn sleepers you can find for less than $5,000 on eBay. Impress me.
Bumper stickers might be universally terrible, but which one is the most truly and extraordinarily bad?
Nothing ruins an automotive experience quite so badly as a horrible steering wheel.
I strongly believe that the Lancia Delta S4 Group B prototype has to be the nastiest, deadliest and most potent automobile ever created by a major car company, mostly because it’s powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine built by crazy people.
Happy 100th birthday to Ferruccio Lamborghini—the man who set out to build the ultimate grand tourer after a poor customer service experience with Enzo Ferrari.
So it seems that today’s date has some significance in the drug-enjoyist community. Based on my internet research, it seems that “4/20" is hepcat slang for a moist, potent drug-ball of some sort. Probably peyote and wacky-cheese or something. Anyway, we know you have good drug/car stories, so now’s the time to tell…
In a rare moment where everything goes exactly perfect, Charlize Theron has been cast as a villain the upcoming Fast & Furious 8. If things continue down this path, one assumes she will drive something in the film, but what should it be?
Last week, I asked Jalopnik’s wrenchers to tell us about their worst, most embarrassing wrenching misdiagnoses. Here are the most pathetic cases of “Oh crap, that wasn’t actually the problem?”
Okay, so, this isn’t the best car photo I’ve ever seen. One doesn’t really come to mind. But! It is pretty neat. What’s the best car photo you’ve ever taken/seen?
Even though today’s cars all seem to be be super soft in the sense that they have electronically assisted everything, some cars still require a lot of physical input to do what you want. Others are just so intense they take a toll on you and your passengers. Tell us which car is the most physically demanding!
I traveled to a Cars & Coffee event in Greensboro, North Carolina today and it was good and fun and great. I also happened to grab some photos. Did you go to a Cars & Coffee this weekend? Last weekend? Whenever? Whatever? Show us your photos.
Do the rhyme or do the time. Apparently that’s the motto when it comes to governments and police forces coming up with those hilariously corny road safety slogans. Let’s see if we can do any worse.
The world’s greatest truck packs a 44 horsepower 1.5-liter Kubota V1505 four-cylinder diesel linked to a five-speed manual. My 1985 Autobianchi A112 had 48 horses from the factory, also with a five-speed. What else is tons of fun under 50 HP?
Harley has been building functionally the same basic bike for, what is it, 300 years now? Little has forced them to change its styling or design over time. What if car companies could do the same thing?
Day in, day out, we are reminded just how great and wonderful and lovely and perfect the 1960s were for cars.
We’ve been out testing a radioactive-lime colored Mercedes G Wagon 4x4² recently, which is pretty damn metal. But it isn’t for sale (yet). It is similar to the Mercedes G63 AMG 6X6, which is quite possibly the most metal car on sale today (or recently for sale). That is, unless you can prove me wrong.
Is the Porsche 928 a car that only existed in the past?
