The glory that you are currently beholding is one of the largest vintage child car seat collections in the world. Trust us, this is way more interesting than it sounds. A Jalopnik reader named Scott has spent the last 30 years collecting nearly 100 vintage car seats, some of which, he says, have even been featured in…
If you’ve got a Lada, chances are high that at some point it will need a tow. But perhaps you are the do-it-yourself-type. “Screw hiring a professional!” you declare. “I’ll do it myself!”
Please be aware of the minimum distance of clearance needed when parking a vehicle near unguarded, active train tracks. The preferred distance for which to park is [as far away as possible].
The drama of this video, shot on a helmet cam at the Nürburgring, begins about 30 seconds in, when, having spotted a crash up ahead, the driver stops, waits for two screeching cars to pass, and then opens his door and runs to jump behind a guard wall. He tries to flag other drivers down, but to no avail, helpless to…
It’s another gorgeous day near Hallingdal, Norway and you’re just trucking along in your big red rig. It’s the middle of the afternoon, and you’re making your way toward your final delivery for the day, thinking that it would be nice to get home to enjoy a sensible meal, and then OH MY GOD DON’T HIT THAT KID!
The new TV-equipped Audi A8 has active suspension, which in the past has been used for a tunable ride and raising for better ground clearance. But Audi now thinks active suspension can be used for passive safety, and its new system can jack up a side of the car to better protect its occupants in the moments before a…
A Kentucky driver this week attempted to pass someone on the road, and instead jumped a curb before striking more than a dozen cars sin the lot of a Chevy dealership. Chalk it up to very bad driving.
It’s been pounded over and over again into our heads: don’t drink and drive, don’t drink and drive. But what about for drowsy driving? Don’t drive drowsy? It’s not discussed as much, and it really should be.
At least two people were reported dead Wednesday after fourteen vehicles were involved in a massive pileup that led to explosions and a fire north of Toronto, according to Canadian police. Two of the vehicles involved were fuel tankers.
The crashes at the 11-foot-8-inch bridge were funny at first. Then, when the city of Durham, North Carolina, added several warning lights and signs, the crashes became sad. Now they’re so sad, they’ve looped right back around into being hilarious again.
Cars have a lot of important parts on them and in them. Some, like the radio or maybe one of your forward gears, you can live without. Others, like your tires, you really cannot. Please do not experiment with this hypothesis at home, or on a busy Houston highway.
A crash in the early hours of the morning near Miami Beach left a Lamborghini Huracan split completely in half, according to reports. The car caught fire as well, with the front end landing in a nearby parking lot and the back half coming to a stop in the middle of the road.
Alcohol is a hell-of-a drug, and it’s just about the only explanation I can come up with for why the person in this video was able to stumble so catastrophically straight into a street-parked 2001 Porsche Boxster S. Just wait until you see the dent.
A Texas jury just awarded a couple severely injured in a crash $42 million because their vehicle, a 2010 Honda Fit, had been improperly repaired by a collision center. Instead of welding the roof, per Honda’s repair guidelines, the shop used adhesive. That, according to plaintiffs, compromised the car’s safety…
Jalopnik sleuths, we call upon you and your inherent car knowledge. Update: Damn! You guys are good!
Yesterday, an Instagram user posted a Snapchat video of what appeared to be a human “skateboarding” an old Honda CRX. That is, coasting it down a hill while standing on the floorboards. The video ends with a dramatic crash. Is this video real? Fake? Physically real but also completely intentional? We’re leaning toward…
And it looks like the caution flag is out, folks, for a wreck at an intersection in Charlotte, North Carolina around the time of NASCAR’s “Laps Uptown” parade before race weekend. Someone’s spotter is going to be in trouble for this one.
On Saturday, in Gómez Palacio, Mexico, a taxi attempting a U-turn struck a Lamborghini Aventador, causing around $38,000 in damage, according to the Mexico City newspaper Excelsior. For once, it wasn’t the Lamborghini’s fault!
