My rally weekend in my new-to-me 1995 BMW M3 was going about as well as possible. I was picking up real speed, getting comfortable in my newly-built car, and somehow, everything was going relatively smoothly. Until it wasn’t.
I thought mounting underbody protection to my BMW M3 rally car would be mostly quick and easy. Well, that was a dumb thought!
This has been one hell of a week as my BMW E36 M3 and I are on the road, heading to the New England Forest Rally. My constant companion on this journey—besides my co-driver—is a fully loaded Dodge Durango SRT.
If you’ve seen like any action movie involving a Very Big Heist, you’ve probably secretly admired the well-choreographed chase scenes and seemingly purpose-built getaway cars. And that’s the exact energy we’re channeling for Car Time this week.
My first rally race with my newish-to-me 1995 BMW M3 is coming up on me faster than the trees I hope to be near-missing at the event next week. I still have a whole spreadsheet of service items to get done. I keep wondering this to myself: “Am I screwed?”
When we learned that Rich Energy, Haas F1's mysterious and seemingly sketchy sponsor, could be purchased online, we knew we had to try it. So we did! And we did so on camera.
There are countless ways things can go wrong when riding a motorcycle, but one of the most prominent fears is to have some iPhone-focused car driver rear end you while sitting in traffic or at a stoplight. As you can see in the video here, it’s a serious concern.
Automotive technology changes, design moves forward, performance capabilities climb. But for some reason there are cars that seem to not even get a hint of that innovation. Cars like the Mitsubishi Mirage, the Chevy Impala, and even the Toyota Land Cruiser—how and why do they still exist in their current form?
Car ownership in a city like New York City requires money, dedication, and the willingness to hate yourself time and time again. Is it all worth it? Well, that’s the question we’re asking during Car Time this week!
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.
