Well my 2006 GTO only scored a 26, but I consider it Jalop as hell. My other cars are a P71 Crown Vic and a ‘94 Roadmaster. The Crown Vic and the GTO purchases were influenced by Jalopnik.

125 points, even with no points awarded for a pickup truck, or pre-2005. Although it wasn’t an officially sanctioned “track day”, per se, I *did* credit myself for the Nürburgring, because Nürburgring... Read more

My highest scoring car was a 149. 1963 Corvair Monza. How were there no points awarded for having the engine in the ass?

Do I have to do the quiz if the lead image is a cartoon of my car?

What about if the second image is a picture of my motorcycle? (okay, the 550 rather than the 360... still)

Oh jeez.

1978 Porsche 930 with Ruf BTR package. I stopped counting at 400 points. Do I win a cookie?

The BMW M Roadster is on Hagerty’s list of top future collectables and an excellent value right now, but you can’t have mine.

It can be done! I know it can! When I bought my used Miata NB it had snow tires on it! I felt like an idiot for driving on them for about 6 months before taking it to a tire shop to have them point it out. Was just in for a flat fix and ended up getting all 4 tires. But it was really funny because for the longest time Read more

Here in a more temperate clime (northern Virginia), I usually can put the top down all year, if it is not actually raining or snowing. When it gets hot, I put on sunscreen and turn up the AC. I am not hardy enough to live in Wisconsin, think about how often snowblowers have been mentioned in Peter Eagan’s columns. Read more

Not yet time here in Florida. But come November, you’ll find me wondering aimlessly around muttering “I miss my Jag. Oooooh, I miss my Jag”.

The prices are dropping.. Picked up a ‘14 stang Sunday. Would have preferred a miata, but have a family of 4. It’s one of the compromises that must be made, but hey, convertible on sale.

Agree thoroughly. If I’m driving this, the top is going down. If its less than about 40 degrees out, just stay off the interstates. Although, heated seats and a heated steering wheel do come in quite handy. As do ventilated seats in the summer (although, they don’t do much unless the top is up/windows are closed and

Preaching to the choir. My s2000 spends 99% of the time from May-September with the top up. The rest of the year? As long as nothing’s falling from the sky, top goes down. Read more

This is painful timing, since I just barely passed passed on bidding on a gorgeous looking Miata last night, that ended up going for far less than its value if it was anywhere -near- the condition it appeared to be in. I convinced myself I was better off waiting to buy one at the beginning of summer. Read more

I could not agree more. 100%, totally and completely. My toys DO hibernate when the leaves change, but I don’t put them away until temps are in the 40’s and the summer tires become unsafe to drive on. Like Egan, I despise being baked to death in my car, so I tend to drive with the top on when it’s 90 deg and 80%

Miata is here, in garage, awaiting a new rear differential....within 2 weeks I will be awaiting the leaves dropping, the crisp air, and cruising the backroads...
