You love your car? You can’t help but pose in front of it? This praying mantis knows how you feel.
Every inch of Dennis Erickson’s home was covered in cars. On the beds, on the floors, in the bathrooms. He had 30,000 cars, from the smallest miniatures to full-sized working classics. And now he doesn’t have to deal with them any more. His church does.
Images surfaced on Chinese social network Sina Weibo that show a Gallardo driver getting into trouble for transporting a giant stuffed bear the only way a Lamborghini allows it.
If you had to guess what the first really successful Matchbox toy vehicle was, the one that convinced them there was money to be made cranking out tiny toy cars, what would you guess? An E-Type? A Model T? A tank? Nope, nope, and nope. The one that convinced them had a pair of disembodied shins. Were you going to…
The Sultan of Brunei has what’s considered to be the world’s most insane car collection with over 5,000 rare cars. But there’s a suburban dad from Pennsylvania who puts him to shame with over 30,000 vehicles covering nearly every brand and model. And they all fit in his house.
There's an alternate universe where semi trucks, trailers and all, tandem drift with Nissans and Mazdas. That universe exists, it's just really tiny.
The legendary Ken Box is back, but how can he set up the ultimate Crazy Cart course when irate gorilla security guards are always trying to shut him down?
When I was a kid, I started to realize that humanity is doomed when Matchbox cars started to become less durable pieces of plastic than rugged crushing metal. Things were certainly looking brighter in 1965.
What's cooler than a Martini Racing Porsche Turbo race car? A Martini Racing Porsche Turbo race car you can put on your shelf. Excuse me, I need to go to the toy store now.
I'm pretty sure rocket motors and fireworks and other pyrotechnics have been duct-taped to R/C cars since kids have had access to both items. And I'm sure a good, if possibly finger-losing time was had by all. Even so, it's still great to see what an 18lb-thrust G-class rocket motor does for a remote-control Corvette.
Meet the Camatte57s. It's Toyota's "sporty, open-top family-focused concept car" built for the upcoming Tokyo Toy Show. It's a bit like IKEA furniture: Weirdly named and frustrating to build.
Pac-Man is a Dodge Challenger. The ghosts are two Plymouth Barracudas, a '59 Caddy, a Porsche GT3 Cup, and a '70 Chevelle. The whole thing is shot in stop motion. It's awesome.
We don't start to love cars when we turn sixteen and get our licenses; we start with little Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars. Here are Jalopnik readers' favorites.
As anyone who's had to perform military service in a warzone knows, overseas deployments tend to involve hard work and long working hours. But the down time can be just as intense, with many of the troops turning to video games and pirated DVDs to keep their minds from drifting wistfully homeward while they're away.
Here is a 1:5th scale Mk1 Ford Escort R/C car racing around a mini rally stage, dubbed with the audio of a real Mk1 Ford Escort. It is unexpectedly, absolutely cool.
It was 50 years ago, in April of 1962, that primitive lego-cave-dwelling minifigs first developed the wheel. This ranks among the greatest milestones in Lego history since early minifig society first figured out how to smelt raw plastic ore into Lego bricks.
If you're like most of the population, all your troubles can be traced directly back to the fact that, when attempting to build a Morgan 4/4 out of Lego, you just can't do it accurately enough for your needs. Well, friends, I'm happy to say your problems are over, thanks to the Free Universal Construction Kit from…
I'm a big fan of small cars, and, like many small-car aficionados, I'm frankly tired of not having a car that can be mostly obscured by a grain of sand. Thankfully, that problem has been solved by researchers at the Vienna Institute of Technology, who have used a new 3D printing method to produce a racecar about 285…
