Dear Jalopnik, Harden the Fuck Up!LandofMinos: ...sent down to strike the unroadworthy!12/18/13 5:51am5117EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkDrive free or die? What the fuck has gone wrong with you Jalopnik? You've lost your edge... AdvertisementGetting close to a decade ago I stumbled upon a website that was purely about the cult of cars. But it wasn't just cars, I discovered Americans with the same love of cars, bikes, tractors, V8 hemi-powered SR71 Blackbird jet engine starters... whatever the fuck stirs the ire in my Aussie hoon sensibilities... they loved. They loved Aussie cars, embraced the Aussie word 'hoon'. That blew me away... there's yanks who know what a Holden is let alone their knowledge and love of utes. So I joined the club and became a 'Jalop'. Over the last decade, Jalopnik went from strength to strength, from one esoteric commenting system to the next. Many writers have come and gone, but with a heavy heart and a bit of trepidation, I have to say to the majority of the latest bunch of writers; Harden the fuck up you bunch of girly men, you are ruining Jalopnik.Some of you have become preachy do-good grandmothers. Posts like Raphael Orlove's whining (again) about some asshat biker getting away from the cops, makes me embarrassed to say I'm a Jalop.
