Grandpa had a chair. Our family always joked that any presents we bought him would end up behind this chair, as he was a true child of the Great Depression: he made do with what he had and didn’t want for more. I didn’t just inherit this chair—I seem to have inherited his lack of enthusiasm for extraneous stuff. Just…
Whether you’re getting into the holiday spirit or you’re a soldier in the war on Happy Honda Days, many Americans have already hauled their dead evergreens into their homes to decorate them with shiny plastic and memory-ascribed baubles. Some cool car folks are not above strapping their tree to the roof of their car,…
What you’re looking at is a Lamborghini Huracán with a Christmas tree on top. This is the proper and only good way to transport a Christmas tree, if you were wondering.
On Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, which is the first day of the holiday season (or a least used to be, before Santa started moving in on Halloween) many Americans bought trees. Many of them were brought home on top of cars, like this one in Sudbury, Massachusetts. That’s a big tree!
Now that Thanksgiving is over and done with, most of us can focus on the next big hurdle: Christmas. And since all retail stores collectively have started playing Christmas music on repeat until the holiday is over, I guess we can start thinking about Christmas trees and ensuing tree transfer, too.
Brothers Daniel and Jason Knust of Wollongong, Australia, wanted to show their mom Carol how much they appreciate her by getting her the car she’s always wanted: a BMW 3 Series. So, they saved up for ten years to buy her one for Christmas, per Fox News. Her completely incredulous reaction is just the best.
If Santa Claus drank all your beer and peed on your gift, you’d be mad, too. Watch the drift squad of Faction! get some gloriously sideways revenge on Santa for ruining their Christmas.
Ever since Tesla’s range of cars made it possible to do updates over the air, we’ve all been wondering what the company who invented Ludicrous mode would slot into their cars as unlockable Easter eggs. Today, we might finally have an answer, and it’s the most amazing thing I’ve personally ever seen a Tesla do.
You don’t take your nice car to pick up the Christmas tree. Think of the scratches! So, you go fetch the big dumb scrapey thing in a beater. At that point, you might as well have some fun with it while you’re out.
I’ve been asking Santa Claus for a Porsche 911—a Guards Red 911, even—for every year since I discovered what a 911 was, and it looks like he’s kept it for himself. If Santa kept it to hoon it with reckless abandon, shoot, I ain’t even mad.
I freaking live for the two-to-four weeks a year it’s socially acceptable to turn my truck into a rolling preschool crafts project. Bring on the bows, wreaths and superfluous blinking lights!
Mini has introduced the 2016 John Cooper Works Mini Clubman—that’s the big boaty wagon Mini, but now it comes with the most torque out of the lineup. It’s also green and red with flashing lights on the inside. We’re still in September, right?
Step One: get a tree. Step Two: hook the tree up to a Nissan GT-R. Step Three: engage launch control and, wait, this isn’t so simple.
Good morning, and a very Merry Christmas to you from your favorite automotive website! (Jalopnik wishes you a Merry Christmas as well.)
Like many Jews, I spent most of my younger years as a “child.” And, as a Judaic child growing up in an overwhelmingly Christian area, I saw plenty of nativity scenes. Before I knew what they were, I thought they were some kind of playset for some media property I wasn’t familiar with. They still have a sort of…
‘Twas the weekend before Christmas, and, well—most people probably spent a lot of the time shopping for last-minute gifts that were supposed to be bought about a month ago (Black Friday deals, anyone?). If you did too, there’s a good chance that you saw a few mobile Christmas decorations while out.
On Christmas Day the police department of Manchester, Connecticut roamed the streets in their eight-ton armored personnel carrier decked out in Christmas lights bearing gifts to needy kids. Cute community outreach initiative or subtle "scare 'em straight" operation?
Can anyone beat getting a steering wheel from a Formula One car they've driven as a present? Probably not, unless someone got the full F1 car with it somewhere.
Every year we have to watch those obnoxious television commercials. You know the ones where some yuppie couple wakes up on Christmas morning, then walks outside in some overpriced pajamas sipping a latte only to find a brand new luxury car with a bow on top. Does this really happen?
Let's just take a moment and really look at this picture here. There's a lot going on. It's from Museum Victoria's collection, in Australia, which is why it's so summery-looking. It was painted by James Higgins Quirk, and, while charmingly rendered, is nevertheless a little terrifying. Maybe because Santa is, like, 20…
