I feel like Jalopnik might not be the website for you.

Wow, I’m surprised at the interest in my lunch - a mix of dark and white turkey meat, provolone, bacon, some dark green ruffled lettuce (not sure the name of it, it’s what was left in the fridge) and deli mustard. Bread is Pepperidge Farm swirly rye. Leftover apple pie warmed in microwave. I made the pie. Best part of Read more

DID I TELL YOU I DRIVE A MERCEDES? IT’S AN AMG AND IT HAS SOMETHING CALLED EMOTION START! MY CAR IS BASICALLY A RACE CAR, BUT NOW I CAN HEAR IT A LITTLE BETTER. DID YOU KNOW THAT MERCEDES HAS WON THE LAST SIX CONSTRUCTOR’S CHAMPIONSHIPS IN FORMULA 1? NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE IN AMERICA KNOW THAT.

If Hyundai is smart, they’ll release an electric version of the Veloster with somewhere between 250 and 350 hp in an AWD configuration and price it between 30 and 40 grand. You’d have a proven platform with no major defects that could run with Teslas. I suspect it’d be a runaway success, especially with all the Read more

Thank you Kristen, this is good stuff. I live in the area, those intersections have much shorter yellow light times.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched drivers goose it through an intersection during a yellow light. The LA-left, we called it when I lived there. We’ve all done it, but problems arise when drivers time things poorly and wind up running a red light. It’s dangerous for other cars and pedestrians alike. Read more

The Supra is the automotive equivalent of Arrested Development: everyone was very sad when it went away; years of pining ensued and a cult-like status was achieved. Then the excitement, anticipation, and salivating at the mere hint that it may one day return. When it actually arrived most people were disappointed Read more

This is a good take. I don’t think many people shopping the Cayman, Boxster, Z4 etc... would consider the Supra. And I surmise the converse to be true as well.

I was just talking to my friend about the Discman back in the day that I used with one of these. It had like ‘2x’ skip protection, which basically meant ‘almost no skip protection’. I kept it in a shoebox filled with cushions that sat between the captain’s chairs of my ‘89 Dodge Caravan.

Aside from my many, many rigged up audio systems in my various shitboxes, I used one of these as a non-destructive way to turn a walkman into a guitar practice amp. I also did it destructively, but the adapter was much easier!

The cassette adapter was amazing, but depending on your phone’s charging port to aux port proximity, you couldn’t really charge and listen at the same time without getting all that feedback. It’s the only reason that bluetooth is superior to aux cables. That, and some phone cases make getting to the ports really Read more

Fancy Kristen will judge the best driver and then hire them as her chauffeur.
