It seems like a lot of you are headed to Monaco this year to watch the Grand Prix. I got a ton of questions on my Facebook page about where to find the Tip Top, or where the best place to watch is or how the trains work because of the original article about the Force India party from 2012. And the number one question… »
I really thought I could go faster and put the fire out with wind... Turns out the Oil leak was RPM related so the faster I went the worse it got. Oil fires suck too. The smoke was awful. »
Last winter I bought a 1974 International Harvester Scout II. Yes it’s made by a tractor company. Or maybe you know the company simply as international... the same company that makes the horrible school buses from our youth. But somewhere along the way they made these awesome trucks! My dad had one back in the late… »
There's an off ramp in souther california on the road back from Mexicali that does that same thing. Very weird. tried it myself and freaked out. »
Hahaha! That was such a fun night. Thank you for sharing with us your stories of racing at the Ring back in the day - before the armco and all the other stuff that shapes the outline of the current track. I remember telling you that I too was going to race at the ring one day! Then you asked what I raced, and I was… »
Hey if anyone finds an old apple laptop with the Jalopnik sticker on it please contact me! Ray gave me one back in 2010 and it was stolen right before the baja 1000. Seriously. you know the thieves were like sweet! Jalop sticker. keeping this.
The stolen tools were the real bitch however. Nothing like losing your… »
I'm free Sunday... Too soon?
This has to be some massive HR violation where they have no choice but to suspend Clarkson until the investigation gets underway and the real details come to light. Something like sex or violence, but hopefully not and this mess gets sorted out.
Clarkson did tell me that in some of the… »
The cars are fitted with these awesome military spec GPS boxes with a radio transmitter. There is a control for the dash where you arm it before the start of the stage. If it stops moving for 30 seconds and you dont signal you're ok they close the stage and come looking. Or something like that.
There's a panic button… »
Look like the rear wheel of 1st gen cayman, but the wheels are turned too much to be the rear and the caliper is in the wrong place. Wheels look like a bmw »
Is there anything you would change about the car if the series had no rules? Aero? Power? More tire? »
We need more Jello Picnics. All the motorsport car stuff is too tiring. Might be nice to just ride the subway up to central park and eat some Jello... »
I should clarify a bit more as Im getting a bunch of questions on Facebook. It is the most dangerous race I have ever been in. There are NO roll cages. Its like 24hrs of lemons with no safety. We had to weld the door shut and then weld a leaf spring across the door or something to that effect. I can hardly remember… »
I didn't know I loved cars until I owned my first car...an e30 and started auto crossing and going to track days. I'm old, pictures required film back then. I still own both E30's in the photo and am pissed I loss the chance at owning the 2002. That summer with my friends Leo jr. and Matt was one of the best of my… »
The first thing I did when I quit my job was go see F1 in Turkey, then drive the Nurburgring and watched the 24hrs of Lemans, all in one week. I've raced at WRC Mexico, Pikes Peak, the Baja 1000, Targa Newfoundland, a 6hr race at the Nurburgring and qualified for the 24hrs of the Nurburgring, I even have an invite… »
I couldn't agree more. The decision to use Dai, who doesn't race a BMW in Formula Drift, a year after Michael Essa won the Formula D championship, is beyond disrespectful. Its shows the current level of stupidity of the BMW marketing team. Hey lets appeal to enthusiasts, do another drift video... When in reality, all… »
My good friend Travis has a Discovery and says this about Doug and his issues: "Land Rover's are the BDSM scene of the automotive world. He says it like he doesn't enjoy the constant frustration but he really does. Any true land rover owner loves being dominated buy it." hahahaha! »
I'm single again and Valentines Day is coming up. The last thing I want to do is buy roses. The first thing I want to do is drive sideways on snow at Team Oneil Rally School! Best part is they will open on a weekend and give us 20% off if we get four or more guys to show up!
So you need less vacation time than the… »
