Well ‘splitters, we’ve been at it for a full three months now. I made a bunch of ridiculous-ass claims when I first started about fixing motorcycle journalism and now you’ve gotten a taste of what life is like with me. How are we doing?

A source in BMW management mentioned at the Rolex 24 at Daytona today that they have one piece of advice for new employees: "Don't do anything that would end up on Jalopnik."
Jalopnik's first European car meetup got Mr. Okulski behind the wheel of a heavily tuned Lotus Omega and Mr. Hardigree behind the wheel of a ZAZ, of all things. Here's all the action on video straight from the heart of Budapest.
Jalopnik is a bastion of all things counterculture in the automotive world, where burnouts be praised and beaters be lionized. Have you ever been burned flying too close to the Jalopnik flame?

Looking over the list of our 100 most popular posts of 2012 I was pleased to see that generally, you liked what we liked. Most of our list of favorite longreads of the year show up here, along with the much shorter posts we also loved. Almost all of the posts are new ones, but the occasional old story or random one…
Success is increasingly dependent on social connectivity. Constant access to up-to-date information is critical — whether it's news on your stock portfolio, your boss' most recent Facebook update, or a text about your 3 o'clock appointment — even when you're on the road.
Answering the question of ‘will it hurricane?' these are some of the coolest cars I found in blacked-out Lower Manhattan. Up top is a '70s Lincoln Continental. Below are the GranTurismo MC Stradales of Maserati of Manhattan and a new Dodge Challenger across the street. Then there's the proud blackout Tesla. At the…
I have no idea what these two creations were doing on Franklin Street in SoPo. It's hard to find words how strange it was to see these out of the corner of my eye, glowing within the darkness.

"I DROVE A SEMI HERE –" I'm talking to a tough guy with a biker mustache working with a group of trucks pumping water out of buildings near the South Street Seaport, deep in the Lower Manhattan blackout. There's a din from the generators running around us, but he's just talking in that loud way that a lot of my…
"What a good van, eh? Launch it into space and the airbag doesn't even go off."
This car washed up eight miles away from its kiddie ride at Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Sandy is always finding ways to add insult to injury.
We've already seen the dorifto-style finale to the 2012 Global Rallycross Championship at SEMA, but we hadn't noticed that Ken Block was on fire for a while there. Much as we know him for all his Gymkhana hoonage, sometimes it's his rally driver qualities that take over.
Electric car detractors often talk about ‘range anxiety,' where potential owners supposedly worry about getting stranded having run out of battery power. I've always thought this was bullshit. Who could test my theory better than the owner of an electric sports car in blacked-out downtown Manhattan?
