Remember in 2001, right around the time the general public was introduced to the import tuner scene by The Fast And The Furious and “roll call” or “shopping list” decals became a fashion statement? If you do, I don’t have to explain why this is funny.
A Jalopnik reader had the misfortune of experiencing a fire extinguisher go rogue in the middle of a track day. We can laugh because nobody got hurt, but man, you do not want your car to fill with dry flame retardant while you’re trying to drive fast.
The garbage can in the back of this old S-10 never wants to go home. Probably because it doesn’t have a home. Anymore.
One time in Brooklyn I walked to where I thought I’d left my car only to find that the street was empty and that every car had been towed for a film shoot. About 15 minutes into an angry conversation with the police, I found it; the car was sitting where I’d actually left it, about 100 feet from where I thought it…
I hate car keys that don’t actually have a physical home inside their vehicle, but that’s more a fault of my own idiocy than engineering. The key to the Aston Martin DB11 V12, however, is so dang large that I thought somebody at the company was playing a joke on me.
The Aston Martin Cygnet has always been a bit of a bad joke, though we never really figured out if its designers were kidding. Grafting the front of a Vantage onto the compact body of a Cozy Coupe, I mean Toyota iQ, was never going to be pretty but it happened anyway. And it looks like at least one is daily driven.
Pop-up headlights are gone and they’re not coming back. At least, not until they become so uncool that they get cool again. Fashion is cyclical after all, isn’t it? Anyway if you don’t want to wait for flappy-eye lights to return in earnest, here’s what they look like on some of day’s most important sports cars.
Somebody finally figured out how to set the clock on a VHS player and holy crap, turns out that thing was actually a time machine all along! Also, if summer camp games plus motorcycles sounds appealing, you’re suddenly in luck.
Craig Jerkins is finally getting behind the wheel of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Or is it a Demon? “I’ve never actually driven one of these so I’m pretty excited. But my mom used to have a PT Cruiser convertible, so I’m pretty familiar with the Mopar family.”
Elon Musk awoke on Thursday with the intention of sending Twitter into a frenzy by declaring that he received “verbal govt approval” to build a Hyperloop in the densest part of the United States, between New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. This is dumb, it’s not how things work, and requires,…
The 2017 Mazda Miata is pretty much perfect, but it does feel like it’s missing something. Someone just gave their Miata that missing ingredient, the one feature the car needed to achieve supreme automotive excellence.
When your car gets stuck and you look like a schmuck, make your own luck like you don’t give a fuck!
Look, we all know the Fast And Furious movies are not about “realism” in any sense whatsoever. But sheesh, another five seconds of proofreading could have saved this DVD box from eternal embarrassment.
An overzealous off-roader at the Jersey Shore apparently posed his Land Rover close to the tide to get what might have been an excellent picture of his truck. Things started to go south as soon as he rolled onto the wet sand.
Riding aboard a Navy submarine, boat or ship, can sometimes get boring. Books and cards can only take you so far. So, it appears that some sailors have taken up vaping to pass the time and form social bonds. And the Navy is cutting that out quick because there have been... problems.
“What time’s high tide, mate? Maybe we can sail it out of here!”
The Nissan GT-R is this generation’s reigning king of tuner cars. A quick search of YouTube alone yields turnt-up GT-Rs with 800, 1,200 or even over 2,500 horsepower. Fun fact! This was not what Nissan had in mind when first it sold the car to us.
Of all the state-sanctioned killings North Korea has allegedly conducted under the regime of Kim Jong-un—and there have been many—probably none are as bizarre or as brazen as the accused murder of Kim’s own half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia on Monday. If true this could…
