Your mother has probably driven some rad cars in her life. Maybe they weren’t particularly rad at the time, but in retrospect have gained a following. Growing up, we had a handful of sporty-ish coupes in the driveway. I don’t really think any of them were particularly ‘cool’ on their own, but I was raised in the back…
Hi there! I’m Helen, Kristen Lee’s mom. Here is a photo of me with my 1983 Toyota Celica. It was the first car I bought.
It’s Mother’s Day, the perfect time for me to recount the time my mom made me look like a total wrenching amateur.
My love for driving began at an early age, and I’d drive anything with wheels—the problem was, it began at an age too early for me to drive legally. But at 14 years old, I had a boyfriend with a manual ‘63 (or some model year near that one) Volkswagen Beetle and a legal driver’s license.
Hello, I’m Karen Roselli, Mike Roselli’s mom. I daily drive a 2016 Chevrolet SS with magnetic ride and a manual transmission, which means I’m automatically cooler than 85 percent of Jalopnik’s staff. Nice to meet all of you.
Since some of us are celebrating Mother’s Day on this fine Sunday, Jalopnik decided we’d spend time writing about or reading about our moms. Throughout the day, you’ll see blogs about moms on our homepage. We welcome you to read them, and to tell your stories about mom (or the person you call mom) as well!
Moms are kind of a big deal. Where would you be without yours? Not here, and not living out your passion for cars, either. That considered, we at Jalopnik want to take a moment to talk about our moms—and ask about yours. If you forgot the candy and a card, just say you put something nice about her on the internet.

If you tried thinking of a good car for your Mom this Mother's Day, you'd probably come up with something nice and practical, yet fun. Mazda 6, maybe or a fun little BMW. But those things require no thought, no real imagination. No, the car for Mom needs a mani/pedi chair, and also maybe marshmallow wheels.

Mom was always there for you as a kid, and part of growing up is learning how to be there for her.
Tomorrow is Mother's Day! We know our readership is mostly rotten, forgetful sons, so here's your reminder to do something nice for your mom. You're welcome.
