This has been on my mind for a while, but what’s our stance/opinion on sharing our own posts and comments? Not awesome photographs and videos, just posts and comments. I don’t do it myself, but I see it more and more every day. At one point, I was pretty sure it was looked down upon, frowned upon, and now it’s a very…
If you had to choose one new Japanese Kei car to use as a daily driver, what would you choose and why?
The diesel market in the US has been on the rise as of late, with more brands jumping on the trend.
What is the most awesome, amazing or unique car you or someone in your family has owned? Please include SR20 if possible.
A good car always tingles your senses and engages your emotions. An exhaust can make or break a car. You have things like the Transit Connect that sound like an air compressor starved of fuel, and then you have the glorious symphony of a Ferrari V12 singing like 1000 angels chasing down a pack of thundering hell…
Can I be a citizen of 3 countries at the same time? [EDIT: US allows this, not sure about the other two] I am a US citizen currently, but I am eligible to file for citizenship in Italy and Luxembourg. Just curious.
Watching this video, it didn't impress me much. But something came to my attention: The sound the door makes when closed. It sounded good, kind of heavy but not too much. A nice sound. And this leads to my question:
I needed to rent a car this weekend, and I found a $20 off coupon from Enterprise. However, the coupon's only good for a rental of at least $40 before taxes and fees. The only not-hundreds-of-dollars rate that qualified was for a Prius. Do I have a chance of changing the rental at the counter to something more…
Ah, the Depreciation Special, that magical situation where the wealth of the 1% descends upon muggles in a torrent instead of a trickle. But the shiny low market price often distracts from future costs such as fuel, maintenance, tires, and first-generation infotainment systems. Many obvious depreciation specials…
Calling all Oppo Engineers, and those with more engineering knowledge than myself, I have a question about power curves and why torque drops off as the revs get higher.
Sure, everyone knows the classics by now, but for every E-Type, Miura, 33 and GTO, there are countless other beautiful cars which have been overlooked. Even if they don't have as glamorous a badge, they weren't in some movie 40 years ago, or they've simply been forgotten in time, I think there are plenty of "other"…
Am I the only one who gets extremely pissed off when I see an AE86 in same commercial as the 2014 Corolla? The AE86 deserves so much better than to be in a commercial with that car.
This has been bugging me for a while. I've tried google searches for one to no avail. Maybe one of you guys has the answer? Anyway, here's an M1 Procar for your trouble.
Everybody listens to music in their car once in a while, either on radio or from other sources. There is those songs that come up as driving songs, songs that makes you go a bit faster, aiming more for the apex and shifting more aggressively. That's also the usual question: What is the best driving song.
Klaus Schmoll's post had me thinking.
Here on Jalopnik, we are all about the impractical. A quad-rotor swapped lifted all wheel drive Geo? That's the daily driver of 36% of all Jalops. (Disclaimer: statistics are completely made up by me but hopefully representative of the demographic) But how far are we willing to go in the opposite direction? What kind…
First, a confession: I have never owned a car from the 1980s, let alone a Detroit-spec malaise machine. But I often find classified ads for cheap, clean utes from the era, and a non-pickup utility vehicle for the city would be useful. So, what are your opinions of malaise-era utes?
So my S80 has a leaking A/C condenser and radiator. The car experienced a front-end collision a year and a half ago, and the insurance company paid for a new radiator and condenser. The shop offers a Limited Lifetime warranty, where they warranty their work for life.
