“A giddy lot, these rallyists:” following the 1960 Monte Carlo rally

5 days agoVehicles / Cars : Hemmings.com

After our recent assemblage of East Africa Safari Rally videos from British Pathe, we initially thought to pull together a similar compilation of BP videos focusing on the Monte Carlo Rally. Then we saw that the film producer has released no less than 45 film clips covering the rally from 1930 to 1970 to YouTube […]

Junkyard Find: 1977 Mercury Comet Sedan

With a Ford Maverick sedan as yesterday’s Junkyard Find, it seemed only right that we follow up with the Maverick’s Mercury sibling (which I photographed in the same junkyard, on the same day). Today’s Malaise Era Ford is rough but more...Show More Summary

Oshkosh '14

This year was my fifth time flying to "The Show." I brought in a Cessna 172 (N738FZ) in 1999 and 2010, and a Cessna 170A in 2011 and 2012. So I'm quite familiar with the VFR arrival procedure and have landed on several different runways (including the infamous tight left base to 18R that got Jack Roush). Show More Summary

How Does a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Handle a Hot Track Day?

last weekVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks and 4,000 miles on Rally North America in one of the greatest vehicles to ever come out of the US of A: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. It's comfortable, fast, and full of practicality. But how does it handle a road course, at 4,500 feet of elevation, when it's 95 degrees out? Let's find out. Read more...

The Worst Timing For Rain In The History Of Rain

2 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

For those unfamiliar with Summit Point, turn 4 is a fast, downhill, 90+mph right-hander that can be taken flat out in a spec Miata. Nicknamed "The Chute", it's butt puckering in the dry, but get smacked in the face by Mother Nature as you're hitting turn in, and it's terrifying. Read more...

The car enthusiast is dying

As someone who is just about to turn 30, I am not exactly in the age bracket to reminisce on cars of the 1970s and 80s. But even back in my day, being a car enthusiast was ‘cool’. It was a badge of honour amongst those of us that loved cars indiscriminately. So it saddens [...]

“The roads aren’t exactly European, to put it mildly”

3 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : Hemmings.com

While fixing a link to a video in an old post, we came across a trove of British Pathe videos highlighting the East African Safari Rally throughout the 1960s. While they probably don’t tell us more about the rally than we already know – the roads were harsh and very few entrants crossed the finish […]
