There’s only one thing the Tarquanians missed that no Irishman would…
Again, can I play?
Not being overly familiar with the history of Tarquanian car industry, I now wonder if the legend that it all began when Zaphod O’Rourke was visiting Europe and watched a Tatra T87 violently rear-end a DAF 1, while wrecked on Budweiser Budvar, is really apocryphal.
You’re halfway to a car with a cow catcher on the front. I say go all the way because... Well, I’m just sick of all these fucking cows.
Death by yak sex. My father went the same way.
Torch....... What exactly are you smoking???
Jason... NEVER stop being you.
So, no missionary position then, huh? Kinky.
Unfortunately, this sanitized version of Tarquanian history is but veneer concealing a dark course of events. In early 70s, as mustaches became the predominant form of facial hair, the demand for Saiga musk (the most desired mustache grooming lubricant) has skyrocketed. Even though Tarquania was one of the largest…
So, JT, nice, long flight back from China with no wi-fi and a larger person crowding you the whole way?

I would prefer more of a Dr Seuss type vehicle with the driver on top
There’s a Tarquanian restaurant in my neighborhood. The owner would best be described as having “seen some shit”, and he’s got some glossy low-res .jpgs of one of these modified for serious off-road use. I will ask him for more info next time I’m there
Weirdly attractive design. Space waste aside the seating situation would probably be quite comfortable.
That’s 90 seconds of my life I want back...
Damn. I thought Torch’s slightly demented personality was just for the articles. But he really is a nutcase. You can see it in his eyes. Never change, Jalopnik. Never change.
I’m extremely pissed at you guys. You went and done it. You made a good TV show. Congratu-fucking-lations, my dudes and gals and Torches. All the crappiness(that’s a good thing, you Jalops should know what I mean by that) was embodied into a TV show that is a smack in the face to all the other ones. They should be…
I love these nearly forgotten cars. I always play the alternate history What-If game with them. Great article.
I like to think that somebody on the production was a Torch fan and is now fist-pumping over reading this article.
