Yeah, the new Viper (RIP) is nice. It’s sleek and actually good to drive (I’m told). But I’m not interested in that one. I want a first-gen Viper. The one that had no airbags or traction control. That’s the good shit.
Today on Regular Car Reviews, we have the Mazda Autozam AZ-1. One of the least regular cars ever made.
Remember these? Mr. Regular does. The late-2000s model Lexus ISes? Perhaps when you try and recall one in your brain-space, you cannot, for these cars blended so perfectly with their suburban environments that only a blank swatch of pavement at the parking lot of a Whole Foods turns up in your mind’s eye. Ah, but this…
Jalopnik’s TV show hasn’t been canceled yet! Dreams DO come true. And this week, our TV boys head out to rural Pennsylvania to experience the magic of off-roading.
Who doesn’t love a Miata? The zippy little car with the happy headlights and grinning grill is a staple of the enthusiast car culture, and has been for over 25 years now. There is one Miata, however, that doesn’t get as much love. Maybe it should. The NC Miata was produced between 2006 and 2015 and it’s not as pure…
Nothing matters when you have a rental Camaro. It’s surprisingly fast, sure, but at its heart, it’s still a rental car. Get the insurance? Don’t care. Rev the crap out of it? Don’t care. Accidentally call it a Mustang? Sure enough, don’t care. It’s a car that exists to be beaten on, as Regular Car Reviews explains.
The 1974 Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia is beautiful and flawless in every single way. Especially in this blue. My God, the blue.
Harley is losing it with young people in America, and it’s not because the bikes are bad, as Regular Car Reviews explains. It’s because the bikes are un-ownable. They can’t escape the microcosm of Harley-Davidson the brand.
Car meets are wonderful places where the atmosphere is relaxed and there are a plethora of enthusiasts and owners to geek out with. Everyone brings their best manners and it’s generally a good time.
Some children dream of Lamborghinis, Aston Martins or Ferraris. Not Mr. Regular. He first saw a Toyota MR2 when he was a boy and has wanted one ever since. Now he has one.
The Cayman R is a true automotive delight that lets you get away with feeling like a total hooligan even at parking lot speeds—so much so that Mr. Regular feels guilty about it. It’s so good that it whisked him away to another world, free of self-consciousness and woe. But that’s what cars should do. There’s nothing…
I have always loved the original Honda Insight, mostly because assumed these cars were more fun to drive than their economy spec suggested. It’s a manual, aluminum two-seater from Honda. It has to be a driver’s car, right? Oh no.
Mr. Regular of Regular Car Reviews swung by Fabspeed and saw several good Porsches, including a 993 911 RSR clone, a Boxster Spyder and a Cayman GT4. It’s a fantastically weird video, but he somehow captured the reaction we’d all have to a great car if we had zero shame. Ohhhhh. Ahhhhhh. Yessssss.
I picked up hitchhikers all summer. Here’s what happened.
“The European sports car with the Volkswagen difference.” That was the tagline for the Volkswagen Corrado, the replacement for the beloved Scirocco, a car that Regular Car Reviews likens to the works of Henry David Thoreau. All but ignored in its time, but recognized as notable and even influential today. So why did…
Everyone knows how Hollywood legend James Dean died—young and badly, crashing his Porsche 550 Spyder on Sept. 30, 1955. More than half a century later Dean, his image and the few movies he made are far from forgotten, and the mystery of his supposedly “cursed” Porsche is as compelling as ever.
Modifying a car always makes it better. Stock cars are as bad as cars can be. These are lies, lies told to us by Gran Turismo.
Daimler-Benz chairman Juergen Schrempp and Chrysler’s chairman Bob Eaton shook hands in London on May 6, 1998, after agreeing to merge their companies in what became referred to as the “Merger of Equals.” Except there was nothing equal about it; Mercedes took Chrysler to the cleaners.
