A Drive Through The End Of The World

If you want to see the edge of civilization without going to the desert, look no further than Southern Louisiana. Several versions of apocalypse have come and gone there, so I drove down to True Detective-land to see what these various disasters had left behind. Some of what I saw was beautiful and some wasn’t pretty,… » 4/10/15 2:15pm 4/10/15 2:15pm

Well you know, having old cars doesn't really make much sense at all. As long as you don't have to depend on it to drive to work, there's no limit to how crappy your car can be. Personally, I think you should sell that thing and use the money to turn a '73 Mercury Grand Marquis into a (not very useful or competitive)… » 11/25/14 6:25pm 11/25/14 6:25pm

Kawasaki's 310-Horsepower Jet Ski Is Pure Madness

Comedian Bill Hicks once said, "Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a jet ski, and you never see an unhappy person riding a jet ski." Mr. Hicks, and most of those who have copied his quote since, never saw someone ride Kawasaki's new 310-horsepower jet ski, the Ultra 310. The rider of this brutish machine may be… » 2/04/14 3:40pm 2/04/14 3:40pm

A Rusty Old Volvo Is The Chugging Heart Of Nashville's Lane Motor Museum

If you ever chance to visit the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tenn. – and you really should – one of the first things you'll notice is that whoever dreamt this place up thinks differently abut cars than most people you know. Wading through the rows of gleaming Tatras and Steyrs and Reliants and other cars the… » 12/25/13 12:00pm 12/25/13 12:00pm

In defense of Editor Jim Cobb, the logo wasn't his idea. Not a car guy? A native Kansan, he has pretty awesome taste in cars. Anything classic and Mopar is sure to rev that guy's Hemi. He still has his first speeding ticket tacked on the wall above his desk. He got it driving his '70 Dodge Coronet 440. » 10/22/13 5:26pm 10/22/13 5:26pm

The downside of that has been some of Subaru's products. The WRX and BRZ are amazing, but Fuji has turned a truly lovely last-gen Impreza (or Outback or whatever) wagon into a minivanish sort of thing. I'm bitter. I wan't Subaru to stay weird. » 9/05/13 4:10pm 9/05/13 4:10pm

It must have taken a massive amount of cocaine to come up with this design. Seriously, though, I think Bruce Wayne's been hiding this one in the special projects vault for a while. Old news at Wayne Enterprises! » 5/13/13 7:25pm 5/13/13 7:25pm

Nice looking car. Fun to drive. G.M.'s designers did a great job. So why, WHY couldn't they go all the way?! Why was the semi-auto feature unusable? Why was the suspension not a liiitle bit tighter? Why weren't the rear lamps LEDS? » 4/25/13 6:39pm 4/25/13 6:39pm

1972 Lincoln Mark IV: The Jalopnik Classic Review

Forget all about Jimmy Fallon and that puddle of beige goo Lincoln has been calling cars of late. Let's go back to a time when Lincoln meant class. It meant style. It meant "personal luxury" and all of the loud polyester tie, wide lapel wearing glory that entails. » 4/09/13 2:20pm 4/09/13 2:20pm
