This weekend’s road trip sees me finally returning to my ancestral homelands of shrimp cocktail, direct-to-your-door strippers, & UFOs: Las Vegas!
This is a great video on so many levels. The girl’s reaction itself is just priceless, but there is just so much more. Here, take a look for yourself:
In the constant gag-reel that is my life, I’ve had some very strange experiences. Some have even been rather scary. One of which was the time years ago in Conroe, TX. Having just moved to Houston from Las Vegas for a job, I was trying to get acclimated to things with my second new job. I say second because the first…
Recently Doug DeMuro posted another Letters to Doug article on Jalopnik entitled, What Do I Do About The Abandoned Porsche 911 In My Parking Garage? That article you can find here:
That’s right, across the entire globe. Who says DeLoreans, and those spunky little PRV V6 engines aren’t reliable?
I know that you love EcoBoost engines, Ford. I love EcoBoost. We all do. But can we have a damn Controls Pack for it already?! I know that you’ve got them! They keep appearing on custom cars at SEMA, and you’ve even shown them on TV.
In response to my last post about why you should’t Top-Off your gas tank, and the damage to your car that can result from it, I found out that apparenty not everyone knew what that term means. For those that don’t know, it means that you’re literally overflowing your fuel tank on purpose. The reason people do it…
As noted in another Jalopnik thread about the irresponsibility of car owners, a very interesting subject came up: The smell of gasoline in car parking lots. Why is that? Drivers are ignorantly topping-off their gas tanks when they fill up, and are breaking their cars and wallets.
Everyone complains about other drivers and how bad they are. You probably do too, and truthfully you’re probably right. Though it’s not a matter of skill, so much as it is local customs. And we’re not talking about some foreign exotic land, but merely states in America.
It's every car owners worse nightmare; having your car stolen. I've often thought about the proposition myself from time to time about losing one of my cars. A wreck or even some other type of accident from an act of nature is always preferable in my opinion. There is a sense of closure. And to a lesser degree some…
There was once a time when eBay was like a virtual swap meet for car parts. People would post auctions for those hard to obtain parts and you could easily find them. At least that's the way it was back around the turn of the century. But then came the universal fit parts and the shady sellers.
Over the years you've heard lots about what you should do after a crash. Make sure it's safe to get out, exchange information, etc. The instructions have even evolved with little bonuses like, "Carry a Disposable Camera in your Glovebox to take photos." While this isn't *bad* advice per se in itself, it is certainly…
Warning: Prepare to get some songs stuck in your head!
As reported in The Morning Shift, sales stats show that the Sedan is dead. Or at least dying in the way that old folks in nursing homes do: Abandoned and slowly being forgotten until they're gone and no longer a burden. And the truth about the waning interest in the sedan is for one very good reason: They've become…
