An Evening With The McLaren 570S

The above photo is not a photo of the 570S. Since I wasn't allowed to take any photos of the new "base" McLaren (no matter how hard I tried to bribe every McLaren employee in attendance), I'm just going to describe it in some detail. » 3/29/15 11:02am Sunday 11:02am

Show Me Your Favorite Roads

I'm planning a road trip. It needs to be the most scenic, amazing, and beautiful route. Dirt roads are fine. I'm looking for the hidden gems. The diamond in the rough. » 2/25/15 8:07pm 2/25/15 8:07pm

What Are Drone Laws? Do The Authorities Know? 

A few weeks ago I was prohibited from flying my quadcopter in a designed RC flying area. Normally I would just accept this as the plight of quad pilot, having been told by everyone and their mother where I am, and am not, allowed to fly. But this time there was a guy with an RC plane who was allowed to fly in the same… » 2/21/15 12:45pm 2/21/15 12:45pm

The Range Rover SVR Sounds Beastly

I'm not going to describe the exhaust note of this exuberant machine, apart from saying that I have a feeling the same guys who engineered the sounds of the Jaguar F-Type had a hand in it. » 2/05/15 6:46pm 2/05/15 6:46pm

BREAKING: JBH Did Things With His GoPro And A Subaru

Including but not limited to: sending it hundreds of feet in the air, wearing it on my head, and sticking it to the gas tank of the STI. Just another day in the life of a #content creation addict. » 12/30/14 5:33pm 12/30/14 5:33pm

A Quick Word About Emissions

Not the stinky hot tailpipe emissions, no not those. The ones you can't see. The ones that surround so many new vehicles, and make my radar detector go insane. » 12/30/14 2:43pm 12/30/14 2:43pm

BMW M Laptimer Records Telemetry Everywhere You Go And It's Amazing

Did you ever wonder what percentage of the throttle you are using on the way to get a sandwich? Were you ever curious how many Gs you pulled on the way home from clarinet lessons? Do you have a BMW? You might just be in luck. » 12/23/14 5:23pm 12/23/14 5:23pm

Ferrari F40: Gearhead Posterchild

Sat down at my desk this morning and saw a Facebook post indicating that there was a Ferrari F40 parked a little over a block away at Classic Car Club Manhattan. I put my scarf back on so quick I almost got scarf burn. » 12/22/14 5:32pm 12/22/14 5:32pm

Jaguar XJ Snowdance

In this nature film we see an intrepid Jaguar encountering snow for the first time. Watch as the cat chases its own tail, frolicking back and forth before thundering off into the wilderness. » 12/14/14 4:40pm 12/14/14 4:40pm

JetBlue Mint Class Does It Better

I've been flying with JetBlue for a long time, watching as they morphed from a no-frills airline with the best in-seat entertainment, to hawking check-bag fees, extra leg room, and now their very own first class. » 11/16/14 11:20am 11/16/14 11:20am

There Were Many Brunettes At JFF But Only One Was Mike Spinelli

Last night I attended the illustrious Jalopnik Film Festival kickoff party at Classic Car Club Manhattan. I saw lots of folks, and even got to shake Jeff Zwart's hand. As I strolled about looking for familiar faces, I kept mistaking other people for Mike Spinelli. » 11/06/14 11:04am 11/06/14 11:04am

Mutts Cutts Does NYC

If you grew up in 90s like I did, you probably spent your allowance on some exceedingly uncomfortable plastic inflatable furniture, wasted countless minutes AIM chatting with SmarterChild, and rocked out to Weezer's Blue Album, like I did. You probably also saw Dumb and Dumber. A few times. » 11/03/14 2:26pm 11/03/14 2:26pm
