Stutz Blackhawk And Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Wagon Down On The…

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Today we've got a couple of cars that no sane person would expect to find parked on the streets of Melbourne, Australia: a right-hand-drive Malaise Era Olds Cutlass… » 12/05/08 4:00pm 12/05/08 4:00pm

Welcome to Project Car Hell, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! The sporty Simca beat up on the magnificent Humber in our last Choose Your Eternity poll, meaning France gets the PCH Superpower trophy… once it's out of the shop, that is.

March Madness Narrowed To Sweet 16, Round 2 Of Voting Today

Well here we are, Round 2 of Jalopnik-style madness. After the first round of voting, we've eliminated half of the 32-car field. And there sure were some upsets; Parnelli Jones' Big Oly Bronco losing to some white Italian car being perhaps the most shocking. We even had a last minute buzzer-beater, with "Billy"… » 3/28/08 1:00pm 3/28/08 1:00pm

Project Car Hell, Fat Bankroll Edition: Stutz or Pantera?

The appeal of a couple of right-hand-drive woody wagons was almost, but not quite, enough to beat out the pair of MGB-GTs plus supercharged Toyota engine in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll.

Another Stutz Topped With The Most Precious Metal In The World!

Obviously based on some sort of late-70s GM chassis, the Stutz Blackhawk overcomes (or, somewhat ineffectively, obscures) its Detroit roots with the generous application of tan leather from Connolly Brothers of London and New Zealand lamb's-wool carpeting (oops, wait a sec, the lamb's-wool needs replacing). Maybe the… » 6/26/07 11:00am 6/26/07 11:00am

The Topping Of All Is The Most Precious Metal In The World: Stutz…

Looking for the car that will let the neighbors know you've really arrived? Look no further, my friend! This '81 Stutz Diplomatica (one of only seven built) is available for your bidding pleasure on eBay! You say 150 Gs is too much to pay for what looks to be a Continental dipped in early-80s bling? All we're saying… » 6/06/07 3:30pm 6/06/07 3:30pm
