Oh look, a Michigan man had a 500 horsepower Viper V10 installed in a 1930 Rolls-Royce. I think I just found my new dream car.
As America's Arsenal for Democracy shifted its Nazi-ass-kicking apparatus into high gear during WWII, the rivet reigned supreme as the fastener of choice for heavy manufacturing. Everything from buildings and bridges to planes, tanks, and automobiles were stuck together with rivets, fastened into place by air…
Since its launch in August, we’ve ridden the Honda NC700X on both street and track and come away impressed with its jack-of-all-trades ability. At just $7,499 and averaging 64mpg, it’s one of the most practical, economical bikes there is. Not bad for something that shares its chassis and motor with a scooter. But, is…
The best part of this video is not the tank slowly but surely slipping off its platform truck. It's the soldier laughing at the whole scene.
(Thanks, for the original image, Ryan!)
As usual, the biggest take-away from the Oscars this year was America's continued love affair with mustard. We've got the Yellow Fever bad, and the Grey Poupon commercial that aired during the Oscars just confirmed that with its huge popularity. That Grey Poupon commercial was, of course, based on a 1988 original,…
Man, I feel for this kid. Somewhere in China, it was the first day of school, and our hapless unnamed student is happily riding his bike, his mind presumably full of hope for the coming year, and likely not at all worried about people all over the world reading about the bicycle up his ass. That was his first mistake.
Now that the P1 is out there, there's no question everybody will take a second look at its predecessor before deciding which one is better.
Most of my “How To Drive Fast” column is, unsurprisingly, about how to drive fast. As well as posing techniques, some of my pieces offer a glimpse into the inner-workings of motorsport, while others are just plain ridiculous. Siphoning through the bunch, you’ll notice I haven’t much talked about safety. So let’s start…
Generally speaking, children and bars are a bad combination. And even though small children tend to love breasts, their appreciation of them is quite different from the average strip club patron's, so nudie bars are out, too. But that didn't stop 24-year-old SoCal resident Santos Barillas from bringing his 2-year-old…
The velocity stacks on Steve McQueen’s chestnut brown 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso. This is what you got when you had money to blow on cars fifty years ago: lots and lots of little exposed screws. You like, yes?
This is Stuart Lewis-Evans and Tony Harris in September 1953, lowering their Cooper 500 Formula 3 racing car from the roof of a Land Rover at the Crystal Palace race circuit. Awesome doesn't even describe it.
This is Kalle Rovanperä. His dad lets him get behind the wheel of rally cars and fling himself through the forest at speeds you wouldn’t dare. Child endangerment? More like awesome parenting.
Last week we saw Will.I.Am's custom 1958 VW Beetle that supposedly cost $900,000 to build over the course of four years. Why does he do it? To "teach kids science." Yes, science.
We've seen cars used to play soccer, rugby, and hockey. It looks like fun. Now they're playing paintball. This is outstanding.
Why am I pointing the wrong way on a freeway, in the middle of Snowstorm Nemo, in a car with no heat, no defroster, no snow tires, and no four-wheel drive? Why am I laughing? Because sometimes the worst drives are the best.
Automakers save up their best technology for their most expensive luxury models. This is horse crap. Us regular car buyers should not be deprived of the best car companies have to offer.
We moan endlessly about the great European cars we don’t get in America, but Jalopnik readers know ten vehicles we get in the Land of the Free that Europe is sorely missing.
There are right ways to do things and wrong ways to do things. Here is the very wrong way to pull a boat out of the water.
Add a cockpit to a Mercedes–Benz Silver Arrow and it turns into a speed record mecha with wheels. In October 1934, Rudolf Caracciola used this W25 to break the world record for the one-mile standing start. The same day, on a one-kilometer run, he became the fastest man on a public road, at 197 mph. That road, 30 miles…
