This pair of beauties belongs to the Green brothers, both long-time BC Hot Rod Association members. One has 3,000kms on the clock, the other has 40,000kms. There’s a reason for this, and one you should pay attention to.
Rumour has it, there’s a barge-load of postwar Czechoslovakian machinery beneath the waves of the Strait of Georgia near Vancouver. I went looking for the story.
Strewth! That goosey drongo is chucking a tire in the bushes. Stone the crows! Give the bloody garbo a dose of the blueies, the carvey bloggo wobbling dingo-smuggler!
This isn’t a car - this is a stab in the face on wheels. How can this be real? And wait until you see the interior...
This little mutt is an AMC Spirit AMX, a mini-musclecar from the late seventies with flares n’ white-lettered tires n’ a big ol’ hood decal - and a somewhat lamentable 130hp V8. Based on the Gremlin, it’s a sawed-off runt that few remember. Well you’d remember this one: it’s got a 96-inch wheelbase and a built 401ci…
Bike sharing is like anything else on wheels. There are always some problems at the beginning. Things break down. The economics doesn't pan out the way you think. And people often don't have the good sense to wear a helmet.
It was less than a year ago that we reported a serious crash at the bottom of Vancouver's Cambie Street after a utility pole in seemingly the worst place split an Audi in half without killing anyone — the latest accident in the same spot where more than a dozen cars have crashed since the early '90s.
The Ferrari F40 is arguably one of the most beautiful modern Ferraris, but there's no argument that it's the most bonkers. Giant turbos, huge wing, and no serious driver aids to speak of, it is not easy to drive (they crash all the time) as an owner in Vancouver discovered yesterday when he wrecked one in the rain.
At first, when Douglas's dad woke him up around 3:00 am to say there was a crash outside their house in suburban Vancouver, it wasn't a shock. More than a dozen cars have ended up in their lawn over the last twenty years. The shock didn't come until Douglas saw the flaming Audi A7 split in half and roasting in a…
Distracted driving is bad, but even inattentive drivers tend to jump-to when they notice a white American sedan with black steel wheels pull up next to them. The City of Vancouver's solution? Cops dressed up like transients. Tricky tricky, Vancouver. UPDATE!
This is the music video for “Savage Night at the Opera” from the Vancouver-based band Destroyer’s new album Kaputt. It’s a motorcycle homage to Rendezvous shot in Vancouver by David Galloway, and unlike that video of the new fastest lap around Manhattan, it’s entirely lovely to watch—and it comes with a twist.
Nick Croken was sailing off of Canada's Pacific Coast when he came across this bizarre sight: A decommissioned warship connected to a trash barge, atop which sat a pristine Audi RSQ prototype like the one used in the Will Smith sci-fi action flick I, Robot. He turned to Jalopnik for answers. Here's what our exclusive…
Of all the videos to come out of the Vancouver riots, the most striking was a woman defending a BMW from the hordes of angry protestors. Now we know the rest of the story: Not only wasn't the car hers, amazingly, she didn't even know the owner.
A prop taxi used in the Canadian version of the TV show Cash Cab struck and killed a 61-year-old pedestrian on a street in Vancouver late last week. The driver, a production staff member, had been returning from a shoot.
Even as the remains of vehicles still smoldered in downtown Vancouver after Thursday's hockey hooligan riots, many Vancouverites vowed to set things right. Here's one way they did it: Covering a police cruiser in scores of thank-you post-its.
Vancouver hooligans: Just because your preferred collection of mercenary athletes failed to prevail in their months-long quest for an old silver bowl doesn't mean you should take to the streets and start burning cars. Ask Detroit how that works out.
An open air sculpture installation in Vancouver, Canada full of three-foot long Volkswagen Beetle sculptures was vandalized last week. One of the sculptures has even been stolen for the second time this year.
