Jalopnik is in Detroit to cover the wonderful automobile gathering that is the Woodward Dream Cruise, so come on out tonight and cruise Michigan’s M-1 with us.
The Woodward Dream Cruise is tomorrow, but you don’t have to wait until then to enjoy Michigan’s M-1. The street has been blossoming for weeks now with gorgeous displays of mobile iron from all around the world. Here’s what I saw sitting in one spot for just 30 minutes on Tuesday.
If you want to read about Tesla trying to go private, Tesla also suing a Canadian province, and Ford going all-in on SUVs, today’s your day. This is The Morning Shift for Friday, Aug. 17, 2018.
Hot damn. It’s happening. It’s really happening. We let you know that we’re here to help with your life, your cars, your soul, your problems—all of them, car-related and otherwise, and you came through, sending us a whole rusty busload of quality, thoughtful, and, yes, sometimes painful questions. We can’t answer them …
Kasey Kahne, the popular 18-time NASCAR Cup Series winner who’s been with the sport since 2004, just announced his retirement, saying racing has taken its toll on his life.
On April 15, 1964, 22-year-old Gail Wise parted with $3,447.50 and became the first person in history to own a Ford Mustang. For 15 years, she and her husband Tom used the convertible to drive their young family around until one day, the car just died. For 27 years after that, the vehicle sat, and thoughts of selling…
For three years now, I’ve been buying junkyard-quality Jeeps, fixing them, and embarking on long trips to the off-road mecca that is Moab, Utah. Last year, my project was a rusty $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. The year before, it was a dilapidated Willys CJ-2A farm Jeep. And the first year I took a highly perforated $600…
The Aston Martin Cygnet is basically a Scion iQ with a new face and a fancy interior, and it existed in large part to help the British sports car brand meet emissions requirements. So surely it doesn’t have any collectable value, you may think. But then you’d be wrong.
I spent all day Saturday at the Toledo Jeep Fest, a huge gathering of Willys, Kaiser, AMC and Chrysler-era Jeeps in the heart of a city that’s been building these off-road beasts for over 75 years. The machines I saw there were incredible, but it was one full-size Jeep exhibit that stole the show.
At the 2003 Detroit Auto Show, Dodge showed the world a concept version of the then-upcoming second-generation Dodge Durango. It was called the Dodge Durango Hemi R/T, and my god, was it hideous. So naturally, the brand went ahead and released a very similar design for production.
A Fiat Chrysler dealership lost lots of cars to a major flood in northeast New Jersey on Saturday. A now-viral video shows a number of vehicles getting carried away like toys in a creek by a violent torrent before crashing into a bridge and into each other. The resulting mountain of soaked and bashed-up trucks and…
I’m an avid off-roader, and yet somehow I didn’t know about this brilliant method of winching out a stuck vehicle with nothing more than rope and some logs. Here’s how it works.
A Chevrolet S10 pickup drove into a sinkhole in Worcester, Massachusetts on Tuesday, and the back of its cab appears to have just floated right off the frame. It’s bizarre.
Hey, pals! You know how everything is terrible, and you never seem to know what to do, and your life and your car and your car’s life and your life’s car are all a mess, and everything seems stupid and hopeless and wrong? Of course you do. Most people are just going to get the hell away from you, in case whatever you…
Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.
This morning, Jalopnik deputy editor Michael Ballaban’s very first words to his colleagues were: “hey so apparently I’m out of toothpaste...gonna grab some of that and then I’ll be on...gotta be minty…
Mazda has been promising the U.S. a diesel engine for nearly a decade now, but year after year has passed and still no diesel. Now, with the EPA releasing ratings for a 2.2-liter Skyactiv-D diesel CX-5, the prospect of a diesel Mazda is finally feeling real. Here’s how the car did in EPA testing.
In a recent episode of the History Channel’s American Pickers, the two hosts who drive around buying up antiques discovered Aerosmith’s original tour van in western Massachusetts. It’s a 1964 International Harvester Metro Van, and even after all these years sitting and rotting, it’s still awesome.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you chained a 70 pound kettlebell onto the wheel of a Russian wagon? Of course not. Nobody has. But the brilliant auto experimenters at Garage 54 ENG decided to find out anyway. And the result is painful to watch—well, if you’re into VAZ 2102s, as you should be.
A Cummins-based diesel engine in a second-generation Dodge Ram race truck blew up in a major way in Utah on Saturday, sending pistons flying all over the drag strip, and leaving a camshaft poking up from the engine bay. Just look at this incredible carnage.
