Car VS. AmericaJalopnik has a TV show. Join us as we check out car culture across the nation.  

Ask Jalopnik editors Michael Ballaban and Raphael Orlove to drop some hot blog fire and they’ll do it in an instant. With gusto. But ask them to become skid-plate racers in one day? They’ll need some experts to coax (or kick) them in the right direction. You’ll be able to see how it turns out this week on Car vs. America!

Our inaugural episode will air on Fusion on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. ET and PT, but we’ll also stick it here on the site after it premiers because we just love you so.

Below, you’ll find a clip of the guys building their own skid-plate car with the help of the brilliant (and extraordinarily patient) Moser brothers.


It’s a fun episode. It’s good. But not as good as the one I’m in. That one is better. Hah.
