After the jump.
Based on the temperatures we’re enjoying in Metro Detroit right now, I think it’s safe to say summer’s here. It means a ‘welcome back!’ to the roadsters, the classic metal, and my fellow cyclists. Some of them are just as insane as me, so that hearty greeting is accompanied by a sweaty puff of air from beneath our…

The current iteration of the USGP at Circuit of the Americas has been a success, even in spite of this year’s snoozer of a race. Other fans I spoke with at the race had praise for the all elements of the event from the circuit to the ancillary activities in Austin. Members of the traveling circus that is Formula 1…
What a weekend! I will say, the weather sure did beat last years by 100000 percent. Now, if we only could have had last years racing with this years conditions!
I’m at COTA with a friend this weekend, having a great time so far. We flew down from Denver yesterday, and are staying at Best Western Plus in Pflugerville (I think I spelled that correctly). Join us at https://www.facebook.com/groups/carzandcoffee/
The Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club’s Extravaganza featured rather a lot of metal, wood and leather that may not be familiar in the Colonies, but it also featured some bloody typical British rain.
At the beginning of this month, my dog Ellie and I made the arduous drive from Austin to Hilton Head, SC. The occasion was my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary and my mom’s 75th birthday. It was a drive I was both looking forward to and dreading. I had a new route picked out to avoid the nightmare that is I-10, and it…

Eastbound Stonecutters Bridge offers a stunning approach to downtown Hong Kong.
So this isn’t as much a Design Detail as the overall design style itself, but yesterday I was making late-night observations that the new Espace V actually shares several styling cues with the latest Nissan Murano. Of course, this reminded me of a Jalopnik article long ago (a QOTD, actually) where they asked us to…

Have some trunk diagrams showing the Wartburg 353 has the biggest butt in its class.
Are you going to be in Austin for SXSW? You could spend big bucks on a badge to hear the startup crowd bloviate about #disrupting, or you could come to Jalopnik’s big throwdown instead! The Great Jalopnik Throwdown at SXSW is coming Monday, March 14, from 6-10 p.m.
Like Artoo, I was very sad at something I had to do tonight in Downtown Austin. While walking back to my car, I was passing Little Woodrows when I see a Lexus RCF and 911 Cab, which were sandwiching a big, beatup white pickup truck. At first I paid the truck no mind, as I was too busy checking out the RCF.
I attended my first Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend in Austin Texas a few days ago; the elements threw all they could to make any sane man weep along with the clouds, yet a few opportunities grew from that downpour including the greatest race I’ve ever seen.
