What's the best sounding Stock Exhaust?

A good car always tingles your senses and engages your emotions. An exhaust can make or break a car. You have things like the Transit Connect that sound like an air compressor starved of fuel, and then you have the glorious symphony of a Ferrari V12 singing like 1000 angels chasing down a pack of thundering hell… » 11/16/13 10:00am 11/16/13 10:00am

What would the 12 Y/O You say about the car you drive today?

This Charger ad about kids not having posters of VW Passats on their bedroom walls made me think and I came up with this stupid little question: What would the 12 year old me think about the car I drive today? Would he be disappointed? Would he be like "Yeah, can't wait to grow up!" » 11/13/13 3:09pm 11/13/13 3:09pm

Odd question to any experts on citizenship laws

Can I be a citizen of 3 countries at the same time? [EDIT: US allows this, not sure about the other two] I am a US citizen currently, but I am eligible to file for citizenship in Italy and Luxembourg. Just curious. » 11/10/13 11:06pm 11/10/13 11:06pm

Closing door sound

Watching this video, it didn't impress me much. But something came to my attention: The sound the door makes when closed. It sounded good, kind of heavy but not too much. A nice sound. And this leads to my question: » 10/25/13 11:26am 10/25/13 11:26am

Enterprise Rent-A-Car Question

I needed to rent a car this weekend, and I found a $20 off coupon from Enterprise. However, the coupon's only good for a rental of at least $40 before taxes and fees. The only not-hundreds-of-dollars rate that qualified was for a Prius. Do I have a chance of changing the rental at the counter to something more… » 10/21/13 11:57pm 10/21/13 11:57pm

What Is the Best Depreciation Special?

Ah, the Depreciation Special, that magical situation where the wealth of the 1% descends upon muggles in a torrent instead of a trickle. But the shiny low market price often distracts from future costs such as fuel, maintenance, tires, and first-generation infotainment systems. Many obvious depreciation specials… » 10/16/13 12:13pm 10/16/13 12:13pm

Hey Oppo Engineers, I Have A Question

Calling all Oppo Engineers, and those with more engineering knowledge than myself, I have a question about power curves and why torque drops off as the revs get higher. » 10/11/13 1:00pm 10/11/13 1:00pm

What are the "other" most beautiful cars?

Sure, everyone knows the classics by now, but for every E-Type, Miura, 33 and GTO, there are countless other beautiful cars which have been overlooked. Even if they don't have as glamorous a badge, they weren't in some movie 40 years ago, or they've simply been forgotten in time, I think there are plenty of "other"… » 10/07/13 7:33pm 10/07/13 7:33pm

Question For You Guys

Am I the only one who gets extremely pissed off when I see an AE86 in same commercial as the 2014 Corolla? The AE86 deserves so much better than to be in a commercial with that car. » 9/11/13 10:14pm 9/11/13 10:14pm

Has There Ever Been a Production Car With a 7-Cylinder Engine?

This has been bugging me for a while. I've tried google searches for one to no avail. Maybe one of you guys has the answer? Anyway, here's an M1 Procar for your trouble. » 9/04/13 7:02pm 9/04/13 7:02pm

What is the best song about cars?

Everybody listens to music in their car once in a while, either on radio or from other sources. There is those songs that come up as driving songs, songs that makes you go a bit faster, aiming more for the apex and shifting more aggressively. That's also the usual question: What is the best driving song. » 8/12/13 5:03pm 8/12/13 5:03pm

Oppo Question: Do you wear prescription glasses?

Kind of stupid and slightly off-topic question, but I thought it'd be interesting to know if anyone else here on Oppo has prescription glasses. I do since I'm a bit nearsighted (to the degree where I can't legally drive without them) and have astigmatism in my left eye, which sometimes goes off on its own (usually… » 8/04/13 3:40pm 8/04/13 3:40pm

Oppo Evening Question: What's The Coolest Car From the Early 80s?

You heard me, what's the coolest car (be model year-specific) built between 1980-1985? Since it was a time of unimpressive power outputs from the vast majority of the production cars at the time, this isn't as much a question of performance as it is the car's stylistic appeal to you. » 8/01/13 8:10pm 8/01/13 8:10pm

What is the most reasonable car you would like to own?

Here on Jalopnik, we are all about the impractical. A quad-rotor swapped lifted all wheel drive Geo? That's the daily driver of 36% of all Jalops. (Disclaimer: statistics are completely made up by me but hopefully representative of the demographic) But how far are we willing to go in the opposite direction? What kind… » 7/24/13 12:05pm 7/24/13 12:05pm

Opinions on Malaise-Era Utes?

First, a confession: I have never owned a car from the 1980s, let alone a Detroit-spec malaise machine. But I often find classified ads for cheap, clean utes from the era, and a non-pickup utility vehicle for the city would be useful. So, what are your opinions of malaise-era utes? » 7/23/13 6:07pm 7/23/13 6:07pm
