America is a big place, like Canada, but below it. Each state has its own flavor, the culture and traditions that make it unique. So if the culture of your state or municipality was condensed into a single automobile, what would it be? For my own great Commonwealth of Virginia, it would be any car pulled over for…
I’m in San Diego for the U.S. launch of the new Yamaha XSR900, and we’re leaving in a few minutes to experience the bike in a mix of city and canyon riding. Get your questions in now so I can think about them while riding or ask the Yamaha guys.
I’ve gotten a total of three tickets in my entire life. The first was in 2012 for going 16 over in a 45mph. The one was $120. The second time, I was clocked going 5 over in a 35mph (different county), that one was also $120. But just last Fall, I got the ticket to end all of my tickets, a window tint…
Surprisingly the city that was built around cars is incredibly hard on cars. Detroit is a hostile place with bad drivers and even worse road conditions. How would you get around the motor city?
A friend of mine is stuck in a meeting, but gave me the keys to his new car. I’m sitting in it right now typing this. If I pull it out and hoon, I’ll lose a friend. If I don’t, I miss the experience, but keep the friend. Decisions, decisions.
what segment of cars do you hate and wish the world can be free of? well now your dreams can be a reality! *only in oppo* if you were to pick one car segment you hated and wanted to rid the world of, what would it be?
I’ll start with my little sister (19) and her 2002 Mercedes-Benz E320.
There are some amazing paint schemes out there: Gulf, Martini, Jeff Gordon’s Rainbow Warrior, but what about the worst? Show us your personal least favorite racing paint scheme.
In celebration of the NSX’s $1,200 floor & trunk mats, we bring you our first QOTD. And it’s ok, since Jalopnik (damn them) killed it off. So, we would like you to tell us what the most ludicrously priced option is and why.
Pretty straightforward: Say Top Gear or the Jeremy-Richard-James car show decides to use music from the Star Wars movies. What do you think will the car or cars be, and where would they review it?
After seeing the VW Ameo, a thought suddenly came out of my brain: what if this became RWD?
I’m headed home today from school, around 2 and a half hours, which means I will still be listening to music for less time then your average Comcast customer on hold. But to the point, Radar Love gets my nod. It’s a high energy classic and I’ve never heard anyone who didn’t like it. If there are enough replies I’ll…
I woke up this morning thinking about a family trip I took back in 2005. My family and I took a train from NW Ohio to Seattle, and rented a Ford Freestar to drive down the coast to San Fransisco and back. That made me think, I can’t even think of the last time I saw a Ford Freestar, even though they were the…
3DTuning is one of the greatest apps for building a car. Show us your best creation! And check out my profile, please. I make nice cars....
Orange is considered to be the greatest car color ever. But, what car does it go best with? The 944 above seems to match it excellently, but there are others.
You’ve been given the task of creating a car nut, or Jalop if you will, out of a pair of persons with physical impairments. The only way you’re allowed to do this is by introducing them to one vehicle. They can touch, listen to (if able), and ride in the vehicle, but that’s it. No telling them about features, price,…
Some wants a weekend car to hit scenic roads
I posed this same question to Patrick on his Ask Me Anything post. Figured I would query deep into the all holy Oppositelockian opinion. Here it goes:
So, what has been the worst Automotive Alliance ever? (Could be temporary, permanent, or perhaps resulted in a few vehicles) My nomination: Suzuki-VW. I was checking the article at TTAC about Suzuki finally getting out of their deal with VW. Such a disappointment.
Given the hullabaloo about the JGC TrackHawk I was curious about what Oppo would Hellcat if given the chance.
