It’s going to be a BMW engine, and not an iron block, so I wouldn’t get my hopes up. It’ll be slightly underrated like most BMW engines and be fairly simple to tune, but won’t get to crazy power levels like the 2JZ.
The British fare I watch mostly features horrible cars but darn good TV. So bloody good I can devour whole seasons in a sitting... which is not a feat given the European penchant for making series short. In all of Luther, the 1979-1982 Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley’s People, and Prime Suspect the only two or…
I’m not going to lie, this is the best compliment I’ve ever received.
Here you go, buddy! You’ll even see Keiichi Tsuchiya in his own Hot Version Ford:
I’d love to drive a manual Cayenne.
Also, I don’t think “soccer mom” and “genuine enthusiast” are mutually exclusive.
Nothing too exciting car related this week/weekend, but I did fly a Cessna 172 from New York down into the DC special use air space, ran 500 ft off the deck to stay below Baltimore and Reagan’s air space, came face to face with a couple hueys on the way back, and after Hertz flaking out on a reservation with zero car…
After constant overhauls with the rules in recent years, NASCAR isn’t the same NASCAR as it was a few seasons ago. If you want to tune into the Daytona 500 on Sunday and start following the rest of the 2018 season, you may need a refresher course first. Welcome to class.
The tiny racing truck tore back off into the night, and we were left looking at each other. Jams and Boothe had caught up to us, being chauffeured in a chase truck by another friend. They looked brain-dead; I recognized their exacerbation from the last time I ran this race. They’d be human again in a few days.
THIS IS THE REVIEW I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
The huge V-twin engine up front. The two skinny tires sticking out from the sides. The open top. A body like a fighter plane from a war decades past. Few cars are as instantly intriguing to enthusiasts, passersby and other motorists the way the Morgan 3 Wheeler does. And you can definitely include me in that group.
They’re all luxury cars now.
It’s one thing to read about power or observe it—to understand its nature from a distance. But it’s a completely different thing to wield that power, and to have it threaten your very existence if you misuse it. That’s how the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody made me feel.
This is what Jalopnik is all about. Original content. Nice work, beautiful photos. Much respect.
‘Tis yours truly; I deserve hazard pay. Also, after it concluded I immediately declared Raph the winner.
The launch was a perfect symbol of my two simultaneous feelings towards Musk:
Elements are fetching stupid resale values these days, much like Subarus... I’d go for a Mazda5. They don’t have the greatest resale value, which is weird because they are fantastic little cars. Side doors are easy sliding which allow easy access to your cargo. And they are surprisingly fun to drive!
The drummer in my band drives a ‘98 Ford Expedition, with about 250K miles on it. Only reason I know that level of detail is because he bought it from my parents. It fits his kit and his two kids just fine. With a budget of $7K, you can probably get a newer one in better shape, but it’s a proven combination.
Dan is a drummer on the weekends who has been rocking a 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx (Google it if you need, we can wait) that is getting old and now missing some beats. It’s time for an upgrade. He wants something that can handle his gear but isn’t expensive or too big. What car should he buy?
I hope a bucket of paint falls off a ladder and lands upside-down on your head and gets stuck there and you stumble around with a paint-bucket on your head and crash into a ladder and fall down a manhole.
When you woke up this morning, did you think of yourself as someone who would call the teenaged survivor of a mass shooting a liar on the internet, or are you surprised to learn that about yourself?
