I’ve got a BMW X4 M40i and I was supposed to go to the beach. It didn’t happen. RED RUM!
I drive a Subaru Forester. You can put two babies in it. No one has ever remarked on it other than to point out they have the exact same boring, perfectly reasonable vehicle. It was a surprise, then, when people were excited to see me in a Fiat 500X.
Automotive awards are a joke. A cash-grabbing circle jerk where the “winner” often has the honor of paying the publication or organization serious money in order to use the name of that award in ads. Some automakers even have to pay upfront to get their cars considered. It’s a sham.
The announcement of the Xbox streaming service briefly took me back to the ‘90s and to the Sega Channel, an invention so great it basically erased most of my memory of 1994 as I entered a state of pure bliss closest to what David Foster Wallace described in Infinite Jest.
Kevin Roose had Dig Inn for lunch. I had a sandwich and am saving the yogurt. I don’t know what Mandana had so I’m going to assume pizza.
There’s a new Ford Bronco, rejoice! While we all celebrate the news let’s all try avoid making the same joke. Helpfully, here’s a list of all the jokes already made.
Context is the scaffold of understanding and without any context me saying that a tiny little French hatchback with scarcely over 100 horsepower is fun sufficient enough to dine out on forever will sound insane. I’m not. Allow me to explain why you should lust after a Renault Twingo GT.
I like to think of cars in terms of how long it’ll take for it to be cool to show up to a Cars and Coffee with one. For instance, a brand new $65,000 BMW 5-Series is a fine car but boring and would be out of place. A 1971 Ford Pinto, which is a terrible car, would be welcomed by enthusiasts because they’re rare and…
I was just about ready to give up on everything. Today sucked. Polls show that maybe people are dumber than I thought. Halloween is over. Fuck it all. Then BringATrailer had an E30 being auctioned at the same time as 2007 R63 AMG minivan. The minivan smoked it. America is good.

Hey, if you left your GoPro at the race lemme know. I picked it up.
As a celebrity, he had a history of saying improper things, and he was in trouble following a leaked tape of himself at his most offensive. As a candidate, he never seemed to stick to a script, and he’d often contradict himself. And yet professionally unserious Kinky Friedman was running a serious campaign for…
As part of our Are You Faster Than A Jalopnik Writer? karting event (RSVP here) at Autobahn Indoor Speedway on Sunday, October 23rd, we’ll be giving the profits from the event to the RPM Foundation to help one of three worthy students devoted to automotive restoration. Help us pick which student to support below.
The tip for this post was “Mustang Driver - New” and I immediately knew what it was without having to watch. This was the second time this happened this weekend. Mustang drivers are a scourge.
If there’s one thing to bring us together as a species, it’s the delight we feel in a sharable and relatable experience. Car people in Lesotho have the same desire to see interesting automobiles drive fast as those in Gordonsville or even in Beirut. A secondary common experience might be the secret enjoyment many feel…
