I'm not sure what the opposite of a sore loser is, but Porsche nails it. It's just a shame they used the same voice-over guy as Spottswoode from Team America. Read more...

GM China Introduces Plate-Scanning App For Driver-To-Driver Texting

Ever been cut-off by a driver and wanted to let them know exactly how you feel without the need for a PIT bumper? Did you happen to see someone attractive pass you by, but didn’t want to be as obvious as Clark Griswold about it? If you’re in China, General Motors is about to make […]

Hammer Time: Screw Zipcar, Just Share A Govcar

There a few things I can’t wrap my mind around these days. Take for example, Zipcar.  The car sharing firm that supposedly offers the Millenial vibe, is actually run by the old GM dumping ground for unpopular vehicles established rental company Avis. That’s not a bad thing at all. Long story short, the opportunity for […]

Junkyard Find: 1963 Ford Taunus 17M

Last week, I left the Return of the LeMonites 24 Hours of LeMons and went straight to Sweden for a car-freak field trip with Dr. G.D. Yo-Man. Surströmming, runestones, black metal, and, of course, junkyards full of weird (to Americans) European cars. Bloms Bilskrot, located in Söråker, boasts what must be thousands of cars from […]

Amped-up ponies – electric Mustang converters promise 750hp in classic package

last monthVehicles / Cars :

Photo by Steve Berry. Traditionally, muscle car enthusiasts and electric vehicle enthusiasts rarely set up camp anywhere near one another. The Venn diagram between the two just doesn’t have that much overlap. One set tends to search for outright horsepower while the other yearns for environmentally responsible transportation. But a couple of hot rodders hope […]

A traditional Ferrari Collector would probably want to leave his 1-of-32 348 Challenge factory race car stock, or maybe just slightly upgraded with a few modern safety and performance parts for occasional track use. Not Steve Maxwell and Stacey Slead. Show More Summary

last monthVehicles / Cars : Car Blog

We all know (hopefully) that using your mobile phone while driving is an absolute no no. Whether you are making phone call, sending a text or checking your social media, it is extremely dangerous to use your phone while you are operating a vehicle.

Reader Ride Review: 2014 RAM 1500 V6 LoneStar Edition

Little known Bark M. fact: Although I have been most likely to be seen behind the wheel of a rear-wheel drive car with at least a mild sporting intent in the last ten years or so, I spent my youth sitting huddled in the folded-down, side-facing seats of a 1985 Nissan 4X4 King Cab pickup […]

X Games Austin Preview: Put A Bird On It

last monthVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

If Portland's going to totally rip off "Keep Austin Weird," I'm going to put a bird on things. Rally Chicken, to be exact. And by "things," I mean the entire Global Rallycross paddock at the X Games. Rally Chicken's a dirty, dirty bird. Read more...

Tow Rig Capsule Review: 1999 GMT800 Silverado 2500 3/4 Ton

The last time I looked at my 1969 Chevrolet CST/10, it was a pile of disappointment. After reviving it and replacing a freeze plug, it proceeded to pop three more freeze plugs during warm up. Time was beginning to run out, my dad’s house had gone up to market and quickly sold. The truck was […]

Auto literature giant Bob Johnson dies; business to close

2 months agoVehicles / Cars :

Photos by the author. Bob Johnson wasn’t too happy about posing for the vertical portrait that I had to take of him. He wasn’t too happy about me taking photos of him behind the scenes at his auto literature business in the first place, but while he put up with the latter for the sake […]

Return Of The Mazdaspeed 3? Sorta

To my mind, there have only been two truly committed “sport compacts”: the Dodge (Neon) SRT-4 and the non-smiling generation of the Mazdaspeed3. Everybody else, from the original GTI to the Focus ST, has diluted the “more power” formula with additional refinement or equipment or Euro-style panache. The current Mazda3 has already gotten plenty of […]

Video: Pantera - To Restore or to Pro-Tour?

2 months agoVehicles / Cars : Jalopnik

Before driving one, I had a very clear image in my head of what I was sure driving a Detomaso Pantera would be like. Fortunately I'm the kind of person who, with enough phone calls, can hook up something like that, so we found two of them for a comparison test. They are less than three years apart, but couldn't be more different. Read more...
