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.

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.

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

Since they're getting ever more rare (especially because of today's high gas prices), everyone should log some time behind the wheel of a classic, rear wheel drive American land yacht.
