The birds are chirping, the sun is blazing, and my phone alarm is once again blaring that it is Friday–the time to talk cars.
Like any form of racing worth competing in, rally requires dedication, some skill, and most important of all, deep pockets. Or, at least some willingness to take all of your money and watch it disappear down some dusty logging road. I love the sport, but I’m truly struggling with that last thing.
Once again, we have entered the game of weekday roulette, and have landed on Friday. The day of all days. Which means... it is Car Time!
Folks, hello. Welcome to the first episode of It’s the Car Time, brought to you by The Jalopnik Teens. It’s finally time to talk cars. Not that we don’t do enough of that here already.
“Are you a masochist?” is what someone asked me in a Facebook comment last week where I was looking for some car buying advice. Honestly, it was a fair question. Especially considering the unnecessary trials I tend to put myself when buying used cars, which would continue later that week leading up to my purchase of a…
The Subaru WRX STI has been in America for around 15 years and it’s still one of the most attractive affordable sports cars available, even though its base formula has barely changed. But how long can Subaru keep that up for?
The recently-unveiled, track-slaying Subaru WRX STI S209 adopted the company’s top-level S-line branding, but it nearly went a step beyond that, with the almost-revival of a 22B-like name.
If you poll American Subaru enthusiasts on what they want most from the Japanese automaker, you will hear countless requests for a new WRX wagon or hatchback. Or, perhaps better yet, the Japanese market Subaru Levorg wagon.
The new Subaru WRX STI S209 is unlike any other car the automaker has ever sold in America. Not because it’s the fastest or the most expensive, but rather, because it’s not technically a Subaru.
A homeless man died while sitting on a New York City subway platform Tuesday morning in Midtown Manhattan, a police spokesman told Jalopnik. The body was left sitting up and partially covered with a sheet on the platform bench long enough for commuters to take photos.
Towing can feel pretty hellish if you don’t do it somewhat regularly. There’s a lot to account for, preparation steps, and driving adjustments you need to make. Well, unless you like crashing. Thankfully, new trucks, like Chevy’s recently redone Silverado, can help towing noobs so that (hopefully) doesn’t happen.
Hey! We’re doing a $1,000 Craigslist beater challenge in our Facebook group, The Way Back. What’s the coolest, weirdest hunk of metal you can find in your area?
Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIIIs in decent condition can be found on Craigslist all day long for upwards of $10,000, but how often does a perfectly beat-to-shit, single-owner example surface?
If you’re looking for a track-friendly sports car, the first brand that comes to mind probably isn’t Lexus. But now it looks like Toyota’s luxury side is looking to change that with the new Lexus RC F Track Edition.
When I moved to Williamsburg in August, I knew that sooner or later, I would have to map out a plan on how to commute once the area’s main subway lifeline shutters service between Brooklyn and Manhattan. My Honda S2000 wouldn’t save me. Neither would my Subaru WRX STI. So here’s how I’m fighting New York’s worst…
The Metropolitan Transit Authority’s subway system is in a desperate shape and its riders are very, very vocal about just how terrible it can be.
Construction for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s L train subway tunnel has been ongoing in Lower Manhattan, and recently, locals have noticed dumpsters filled with cartoonishly green ooze on the site. And no, this isn’t some setup to a Ninja Turtles joke.
