A 2003 Ford SVT Mustang Cobra, a car that was regarded as “cool” and “awesome” when I was a senior in high school

Hey vehicle enthusiasts, exciting news. Next week our parent company Gawker Media will be sold to a new owner, so this week we’re saluting 14 years of quality independent journalism with a little thing we’ve taken to calling “Senior Week.”

It’s a collection of stories we’ve always wanted to do, reminiscing on the past, sobbing over our deepest regrets (I got one or two), and maybe even publishing a few surprises from your old favorites.

In typical Jalopnik fashion we didn’t plan out Senior Week very well compared to the smart people who work at the other websites, but we’ll have some fun stuff in store for you. In the meantime, let’s cut class and go smoke cigarettes behind the Wendy’s. Seniors rule!
