I’m about to ask you to read a little over 1,500 words, so I’ll keep this introduction brief. Prior to spending a week with this Redline Red Tri-Coat Pearl Challenger Hellcat, I had only driven one at Willow Springs for all of 5 laps. I had just gotten out of a Viper GT and before the Viper I had been in a Charger…
In 2009, Matthew “MatPat” Patrick graduated from Duke University with a double major in theater and neuroscience. Seven years later, he has become one of the largest channels on YouTube—and he did it by making videos where he muses about subjects like whether or not Super Mario is actually psychopath.
I have a hard time caring about supercars unless they’re being used for super-hoonage, so YouTubers bragging about sweet new rides they’ll only use to hard park in Monaco have always rubbed me the wrong way. Fortunately, YouTube star PewDiePie’s new ride blows all of those basic supercar videos away.
If you’ve ever been to the hub of utter nonsense known as YouTube, you’ve seen the predictable shit shows known as car reviews. From cheap knock-offs of Top Gear-like angles to haphazard transitions, there is certainly a formula for making the video we’ve all seen a million times - and probably will see a million…
Even if you don’t know the Dire Straits song “Walk of Life” by name you’ll recognize it immediately when you hear it. Fun fact: It’s the perfect song to end any movie.
There are so many ways this could have been wrong, or terrible, or downright embarrassing to watch. But Tag Sethi’s YouTube rap about buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee that turned out to be a lemon is actually hilarious, and I’m having trouble getting it out of my head.
Need to push back a blockade of riot police and armored vehicles? Tired of getting pepper sprayed and beat with a club? Grab the John Deere and PUNCH IT.
So apparently there’s a bunch of super cool people with a junk yard. Not only that, but these particular super cool people film themselves going absolutely demolition-derby-dooda on some cars, mainly behind the wheel of an unstoppable Volvo wagon.
Construction equipment is cool as a rule. Comically-large contruction equipment? So much better. Get your fix with these YouTube channels devoted to these insane machines.
I’m a car junkie. When I’m not working on a car, writing about a car, or looking for my next car, I’m watching car videos on the internet. I’m a hoot at parties. That’s why I’m positively tickled pink that the forces behind the Mightycarmods channel and Motor Trend’s popular Roadkill series may be working together in…
The commenters on YouTube are kind of the worst people. Water trash. Here, let the guys at Autoguide show you the types of comments they get every day.
I posted this video a few months ago, and for the first time in the history of the internet, I received a truly productive YouTube comment:
Embarrassing open mic nights, topical parodies, gaming tutorials—these are the YouTube videos we know. The ones we replay and the ones we send to our friends, coworkers, families, and everyone we know. But YouTube has another layer. One where view counts sit at zero and bizarre bits of film rot away in indifference.…
Keeping your gadgets charged is important. More and more our very lives are stored on our smartphones. If they die, we're cut off our friends, work email, and Reddit. There's also the nightmare of realizing your drone's battery is dying while it's 50-feet above a body of water.
Three days ago, an extended video popped up on Youtube of five mariners being shot to death in the open ocean on the wreckage of their boat, as their killers guffaw and chatter from the decks of their larger crafts. Where was the footage shot? Who were the victims and their killers? So far, no one knows for certain.
Unless you're living under a rock around here, you probably know that the guys from /Drive have moved from YouTube to the big time, well at least to a 3rd tier cable network. But don't take my cynicism as criticism. Lamentations of American programming for enthusiasts are unfortunately in abundance around these parts.…
This documentary retraces the history of one of France's most iconic cars. All in French, no subtitles, but if you love French cars vous aussi, pouvez probablement connaître le français
It's incredibly noisy in the cockpit of a helicopter, and you'd assume the sounds you hear in any YouTube police chase video were just the deafening whine of the chopper's engine. But as one hacker discovered, that monotonous drone can actually hide some useful data, like the helicopter's GPS coordinates.
We joke about the official car of Jalopnik being a brown rear-wheel-drive manual turbodiesel wagon Miata, but if you have one of those things (a turbodiesel), these Finns plan on showing you how to make it faster.
