“SEND IT!” the kid next to me screamed into the night, as three cop cars tore through the intersection where a slammed Volkswagen had done a front-wheel drive burnout only moments before. A police helicopter buzzed over the bay nearby. H2Oi was technically cancelled this year. But 78 arrests, 2,735 calls to police …
Legends never die. Rusty Slammington certainly hasn’t. The E28 BMW 5 Series has been featured on the internet pages of Jalopnik for the better part of a decade, but now it’s finally done, and it’s out there putting BMW nightmares into your children’s heads.
It wasn’t always like this, Don Santora told me. And it wasn’t supposed to be like this.
H20i, the annual car show in Ocean City, Maryland that Jalopnik declared the most ticketed car show in America just last year, has been postponed until 2018, according to event organizers.
Hey VWVortex forum dude, you’ll be happy to know that the automaker is a big fan of your sick slammed Jetta with faux BBS wheels, rolled fenders and fart-can exhaust. But don’t be too happy, because VW is not that big of a fan. It’s only sort of a fan. Like, in the way Detroiters are fans of the Lions—they’ll ditch…
When your car gets stuck and you look like a schmuck, make your own luck like you don’t give a fuck!
H2O International is a gigantic annual car show in Maryland that’s known for three things: 1) the world’s lowest and most ridiculously built show cars all in one place, 2.) hoonage and debauchery that makes a frat party look tame, and 3.) more ticketing and impounding by Ocean City Police Department than you can ever…
Yes, believe it or not, the question is regarding my bagged 2005 Subaru Baja Turbo, the one I had the audacity to compare to a 2016 STI. It’s a truck, kind of—less so since I got my hands on it—but can it tow stuff? Specifically, can it tow my drift car?
The question wasn’t if his car would get impounded. We knew was going to happen the moment we saw the police cruiser follow his Honda S2000, slammed, on chrome, into a gas station off Ocean City’s main drag. The question was how.
Pushing the limits of what’s possible is exactly the point of modifying your car. However, at some point, the law of diminishing returns comes into play, which kicked in for this determined Miata owner the second he realized that his home-made hella-stance kit was a little too much for his rented U-Haul trailer to…
You’ve got to respect this kind of dedication to tremendously bad decisions.
Today we celebrate a brave alloy for breaking free from a life—if you can call it that—imprisoned on a stanced Saab.
If you want Instagram to be full of you and your Miata, this is one way of doing it. Not the correct one though.
Automotive customizing subcultures are strange, glorious things that seem to arise from one odd detail and then grow into a massive movement, incomprehensible to anyone on the outside. Think Stance, Donk, Bosozuku, Rat Rods, Lowriders, you get it. Today I’d like to propose a new one.
Either you love stance culture, or you hate it. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of middle ground there. Stance fans are super passionate, too, but it’s almost like they’re totally unheard. But it’s just because people who make cars are busy, okay?
Picturesque Ocean City, Maryland. Home to a lovely boardwalk, fine dining, and of course, the stanced car fest H2Oi, infamously also the most-ticketed car show in America. This past weekend’s H2Oi 2015 was no exception. Journey with us through Instagram as we see the crackdown on stance.
This is H2Oi, where stanced car owners converge on Ocean City, Maryland, where they know they will be viciously and aggressively fined by the local police. The most ridiculous ticket-fest in the country has begun.
Wheels and tires – the sizes, the way they look, the way they fit – have always been key to car-style subcultures. Just look at Donks, stance, jacked-up monster trucks, etc. That's why I think this coming year will finally see the biggest stylistic wheel-and-tire leap of all: the subculturization of the tweel.
