Jalopnik celebrated a birthday recently. I thought of this at the time, but Niquemarshall's post reminded me of it.

Mike Spinelli, he created jalopnik, and while mentioned here, http://jalopnik.com/to-celebrate-j… I felt he deserved a bit more recognition for his creation. Thanks Mike. Thank you for creating Jalopnik. A place where the cult of cars is celebrated, where countless people(me included)found there were others like them. Others that weren't brand/country of origin fanatics, but people who liked cars because of something almost inexplicable. A place without which there would be no Oppo. So thank you Mike, and thanks to all the good folks who uphold Jalopnik's integrity and spirit.
