I know CarMax probably doesn't do this sort of vehicle and this is if you're not tied to CarMax and that warranty (as AWESOME as it may be). When you were looking to replace your CTS-V wagon, I put forth a DeTomaso Pantera for your next vehicle. I still think it would be an awesome car to know (given my extremely… » 10/24/14 4:07pm Yesterday 4:07pm

I'm really glad these guys kept their cool during the whole thing. The best thing to do is make sure everyone is okay afterword.

I try to keep my distance when I see the occasional drunk or exhausted driver on the road. Sometimes no matter how far back you are it's just unavoidable. This could have been much worse. » 10/23/14 11:07am Thursday 11:07am

Here's another comment stating that your opinion doesn't matter because of the horrid mods you've made with your pictured vehicle (googly eyes) even though not so deep down I truly believe googly eyes are the greatest addition to any vehicle and personally have too many on my own.

If I made this list, this would be my number 1.

I despised Tesla, especially with the influences of Top Gear and it's range debacle. Over the last few years, I absolutely love what they've done with the Model S. At first I was iffy on the notion of buying a "half-finished" vehicle and participating in essentially… » 10/16/14 4:49pm 10/16/14 4:49pm

I see two options here.

1. Hoon Audi
2. Proceed to hoon Manual Ford Aspire
3.Write amazeballs article about how amazeballs the manual Ford Aspire is at the limit.

1. Take some fast-acting, experimental laxatives the night before for additional spending money so Jalopnik can pay Nibbles.
3. Take Massive deuce just… » 10/15/14 10:21am 10/15/14 10:21am

To add to your point, during the design process, mirroring a part in a 3D modelling program is far easier (only a few mouse clicks) rather than redesigning a whole new part from scratch for the opposite side.

Another plus (albeit small) of a symmetrical design is that it makes easier for us CAD monkeys. It just makes… » 10/13/14 12:45pm 10/13/14 12:45pm

There are far too many great stories that I've read here. This is one of my favourites about calling out the BS product from Fuelshark:


I'm going to see if I can find some other ones as well. » 10/11/14 12:20pm 10/11/14 12:20pm
