This is new. Beachgoers in South County, California, soaked up more than sunshine and sand on Wednesday, when a man led police on a wild car chase across a number of beaches along the Pacific Ocean. And then, police say, he ended the scenic chase by running into the water.
Same old story. Someone steals a truck and makes a break for it on the highway. Unfortunately this time the following PIT maneuver sent the stolen vehicle flying down a drainage ditch, causing a separate crash in the oncoming on-ramp.
Earlier this month, there was an LA-area car chase involving a Mercedes, a bunch of traffic, and some crazy low-speed maneuvering. But I don’t want to talk about the car chase itself; I want to talk about what it revealed. That chase was a sobering look at the chromatic state of the car fleet of America.
Are you prepared to witness the most cinematic real life bank robbery car chase ever recorded? Because this shit is better than Hollywood.
The collection of muffler shops and strip clubs collectively known as “Fresno” is known for many things, but a healthy and active unicorn population is not one of them. That’s why it was so surprising that CHP officers spent three hours chasing a rogue unicorn in the area.
Car chase in LA! A man in a Chevy Express van is going nuts. Call me crazy, but I bet he doesn't get away.
When we asked you to name every single James Bond car ever, it did my heart good to see so many of you chime in to stick up for 2008's Quantum of Solace. Nearly every review I've seen of Skyfall so far has mentioned what a "dud" or a "disaster" its prequel was, and I don't think that criticism was fair at all.
It's well known that the Jalopnik demographic is pretty much equally split between car enthusiasts and chronic stalkers. Today, thanks to our friends at Autominded, we have something that will make everyone happy.
A Lakewood, Washington man's somehow alive today after carjacking a 1993 Honda Accord and then splitting it in two after cartwheeling into a tree during a police chase yesterday. One more amazing and shudder-inducing photo of the car below.
Using the Google Earth hi-res satellite view of New York, simple animation and a little imagination, an entire car chase was created through the streets of Brookyln. It's like the original Grand Theft Auto — in real life.
From Los Angeles, where this sort of thing happens all the time, comes this illuminating helicopter-cam footage of a plucky and tenacious yet felonious Honda Fit driver. Video after the jump.
After yesterday's top ten silver screen police car chases, we're continuing our week-long Amerigasm with the top ten real police car chases. Because whether you're rooting for the baddies to make a clean getaway, or for the long arm to catch 'em, there's nothing quite like a good ol' real-life American police chase.…
Well here we are, Round 2 of Jalopnik-style madness. After the first round of voting, we've eliminated half of the 32-car field. And there sure were some upsets; Parnelli Jones' Big Oly Bronco losing to some white Italian car being perhaps the most shocking. We even had a last minute buzzer-beater, with "Billy"…
Yesterday, we gave you the brackets. Today, the voting begins and Jalopnik-style March Madness ensues. If you haven't finalized your own bracket for the office pool just yet, hurry up! The field of 32 cars from the original 1974 film Gone In 60 Seconds is about to get narrowed down by your votes. At the end this…
Interested in all the March madness tournament bracketry, but not really into college hoops? Maybe you're looking for a way to redeem yourself after penciling-in Duke to go all the way? Whatever the case, we've decided to throw our own Jalopnik-style bracket-madness party! Instead of basketball, we've got cars! And…
Team Knight Rider debuted back when we were in college, and watching this clip reminds us why we never bothered to stick with it beyond one episode. On the other hand, the above segemnt does feature a water-powered Bricklin (a Bricklin!) — creatively-named Hydro 2000 — that like a seagull, can be handily disabled with…
Wherein two of our absolute favorite automobiles of the 1980s go head to head in a duel to the death. Also, we feel vaguely wrong for thinking the Mantafahrer's girlfriend is somehow ridiculously sexy, Jersey mall hair, cracking gum and all. We try to get out of the Central Valley; it pulls us back in!
