Where Amazon’s budget did shine through was all in the technical aspects of the show. There was extremely impressive footage, capture via masterful drone operating. The shots were cinematic in feel and quality. The colors and the scenery were lovely. It’s a very beautiful show to watch, with camerawork that maintains…
Various WWII night-ops planes had to have shrouds on their (very) short-stack exhausts to hide the flames. A daylight-ops plane (Mosquito, IIRC) replaced the shrouds with “ejectors” which apparently provided enough extra thrust to up the top speed by something like 20 knots.
Awesome! Fantastic! Great! Let’s play a game: I’ll hold my breath until the Alpine gets approved to come here. You let me know when that happens!
“Blue flecks” -it took me a moment.....I then choked on my coffee.
Neutral: To us (Jalops), as a rule, not much. We usually go for styling, performance, or both in terms of our decision making process on cars. Having said that, my mom saw a Hyundai commercial and was legitimately considering getting one because “look at all of the fun things it can do”. The general public is much…
Less racism and xenophobia.
First show is about Hammond crash, it called Past,future and present and It show more detail off the crash and Hamster hated sitting through it he said.
I actually learned something today. I always looked at “turbo lag” as basically the sum of the two. Thanks Kristen for passing this along.
And people eat it up as evidenced by whoever is clapping. “Fuck yea I’m seeing a wreck!”
I know I missed the boat on this one, but a while back I chased down a guy in a black Porsche 993 w/PCA stickers all over it. Thinking he was an enthusiast, when I finally caught him at a light, I rolled the window down and said “nice 993" to which he gave me a disgusted look and said “its actually a 911" before…
It wasn;t a ‘ROly Poly”, it was ’The Rolykit”. I know this because I just had this same argument with my friend’s mom last week. I called it a Roly Poly as well, and I’ll be damned if she didn’t whip hers out of her closet, looking brand new, ready for war.
Bringing us the important investigative auto journalism that no other publication dares to attempt.
So Mitsubishi calls this the Eclipse but Toyota won’t call the new Supra a Supra? I guess one brand has a lot more to lose.
Kristen: I’ve lost many parking tickets before.
Please stop using Piano Black where ANYONE could touch it. Drive me ballistic. It’s impossible to keep clean.
This was really cool Kristen! While certainly a long shot, it’d be cool to see videos of people like yourself from Jalopnik have interviews with the designers at certain companies to be able to ask the questions the rest of us are curious about and get a closer idea about what their motivations are when creating…
Hi Kristen! It was great meeting/chatting with you! Glad you brought out the legendary C32. :) Keep up the great work, and I hope to see you at the next event! Thanks for taking all the pics yesterday!
Thanks! It isnt as much fun sitting in the parking lot but when it sings near the redline its a little more exciting. Come thrash it anytime. Loved your article about cars meant to be driven! Last one had 28K miles in two years and this one just got snows put on haha.
Dead Benjamins, duh.
