One great thing about vehicles is that they come in different shape and size. Some are made to accomplish a certain duty, some, like the crossover, are just useless lumps of bad ideas.
I was driving on Interstate 66 on my way home from work when it happened – the odometer on my 2015 Chevrolet Camaro clicked over and displayed 5,000 miles. Yes, since purchasing my brand-new Camaro 1LS for $16,999 in October, I’ve put approximately 5,000 miles on the car, and in that time I’ve changed.
Year 2015 is coming to an end. As is tradition, car manufacturers killed a few cars this year. Let’s look at the cars we lost this year, cars that will not see the new year.
, we like cars with passion, emotions and character. There’s a word for that : Soul.
That’s the usual string of associations I throw together when describing a distant connection. In this case, it’s actually a college acquaintence’s (now facebook friend) brother. Who apparently wrote this, and owns the jeep in the example.
Here at Jalopnik, we like making lists of the best tracks in America, with the usual suspects such as Road America, Walking Glen and Sebring. Today I’m taking you on a motoring journey North of border to have a look at the ten best race tracks of the great white Canada.
Here at Jalopnik, we like opulent cars, but we hate to pay for them. Here’s ten used cars that can be had for next to nothing and that will make you look like you are running a Ponzi scheme.
Here at Jalopnik, we love the Mazda6. Formerly known as the 626, Mazda’s midsizer was always the fun alternative to boring offerings from competing manufacturers. Not only does the Six compete with other midsizers, it also competes against sport sedans such as the Caddy ATS, the Audi A4 and the Mercedes C class.…
Here at Jalopnik, we like tail lights, especially square and amber ones. Not all tail lights are born equal, let’s have a look at some of the worst tail lights ever installed on a motor car. Feel free to post your own submissions in the Kinjas below.
Here at Jalopnik, we like station wagons, as they make much more sense then any crossover/cuv/faux-suv can ever dream of making. The idea behind a station wagon is to provide as much usable cargo space as possible while keeping the excellent driving dynamics of the sedan they are based on.
Okay, so Marginoferror beat me to it, but here are some more cars that I think 1985 people would have crapped their sweet bleached jeans over. I had some of the same cars, not surprisingly, but I took those out.
A bit earlier today we identified a few cars that are common today that would still not look out of place back in 1985. However, some modern cars would be very difficult to explain to someone from 1985.
So we finally made it to October 21st 2015, and the vehicular landscape changed quite a bit. Most cars got larger (bloated), with huge wheels, LED lights, technology integration and whatnot, but cars aren’t flying and you can use a Mr. Fusion to power them. Overall most 2015 cars would be pretty impressive to see for…

Some of my least favorite/most annoyed with car-based Tropes:
The infamous Mile High Club may now seem elusive when traveling in a single
class boring twinjet like a 737 or a Meh320, but some other and mostly older airliners made that elite club a lot more easy to join.
Yesterday we covered extensively what are the best fast food meals to eat in your car. Today, let’s have a look a those you should avoid at all costs.
What’s better than eating your lunch in the solitary comfort of your Panther car, quietly listening to Police radio frequencies instead of walking into a busy, noisy restaurant at lunchtime and having to endure kids and whatnot ?
Here at Jalopnik, we don’t like plastic wheelcovers, we prefer the pure look of a naked steelie, or a proper BBS LM. As China keeps building more and more cheap alloy wheels, the plastic wheecover is facing extinction. Let’s look at some of the greatest wheelcovers designs.
Cars get rebadged all the time, and sometimes it makes a lot of sense, or it is at least expected. Sometimes, however, it’s just so strange it makes your head explode. Let’s have a look at the ten weirdest re-badged cars in the history of automobile, and feel to add your own submission in the Kinjas below.
