It’s time for This Week On Craigslist! We’re looking at a bunch of cars that we could have pinned down, but didn’t, and are very sad about it.
Today we venture uptown to the Upper West Side, where the old cars stick around as long as the white-haired residents in their co-ops.
We at Jalopnik know that reading all of Jalopnik is difficult (we barely have time to read all of it ourselves), so we decided to sum up the whole week’s worth of news in one newsy video. We even got a fancy stage.
Last week we subjected ourselves to the torture of carspotting in Los Angeles to show you how stupid, annoying, hurtful, dumb and perfect cars live here. Here is what we found.
New York, though you wouldn’t know it if you weren’t living here, is full of all sorts of weird old cars. I am going to go find some.
Now’s the time when we escape from the office and go hunt down cool cars parked on the street. Today, I am on something of a mission.
We’re going carspotting on the car-loving streets of Manhattan—come join us!
We went out on a carspotting quest, hunting cool cars in SoHo, Manhattan’s most Yeezy-filled neighborhood. What did we find? At least one orange Lamborghini.
New York City might hate cars, but car owners persevere and do indeed keep cool rides out on the street. Let’s go find some!
Let us go and seek out the cool cars parked on the streets of Manhattan’s Alphabet City neighborhood. There are cool cars of many kinds, and I think we can find them on video.
If there’s one place in New York City where creaky, rusty, cool old cars come to congregate, it’s Brooklyn’s hipster capital of Williamsburg, soon to be shut off from the world when their subway gets nuked. Let’s go look at its cars!
Our guy David Tracy is hanging out with a wild, almost alien-looking custom Jeep Wrangler right now, and its owner wants to show him—and all of you—around it. The word on the street is that David’s going to get to take it for a spin, and he’ll be sharing the whole experience live on Facebook.
Today we are on the hunt for one of the rarest streetparked cars in New York City.
Our guy David Tracy is out touring a big Jeep show just outside of Atlanta, and you can tag along with him on Facebook Live if you’d like—complete with all of the Jeeps, and none of the unbearable southern heat that he’s sweating through in order to bring them to you all. If that’s not a good deal, what is?
Everyone says New York City is very un-car-friendly. But that doesn’t stop some cool stuff from showing up. Come take a walk with us as we hunt for cars.
Omix-ADA—the biggest aftermarket Jeep parts supplier— has kindly invited me to its headquarters in Atlanta to check out its operations, and to let me drive Jeeps from its historical collection. We’re doing the second one right now, so come watch!
This might be the coolest Acura NSX in the country. And if it’s the coolest NSX, that means it’s one of the coolest cars Stateside.
It’s a beautiful day in New York City, so let’s go look for cars in one of Manhattan’s trickiest carspotting neighborhoods. We’re hitting up the West Village.
Having already checked out some of the more interesting cars of Manhattan, let’s go see what cars we can find in one of Brooklyn’s leafier neighborhoods.
