The fuck's up with that Lexus ad...?

I'm not saying it's wrong... but it's wrong. Very wrong. So wrong, in fact, I don't even know where to start. I mean, it just goes straight up against everything Jalopnik stands for by saying that, no, you're not a car guy if you don't drive something very expensive to draw your neighbors' envy. Nevermind that… » 4/17/14 4:09pm Thursday 4:09pm

So I drove a car with an automatic/electronic parking brake…

I'm not sure if it was my unfamiliarity with the system but it seemed like complete pain in the arse. In this particular car it will easily move at idle just by lifting the clutch, this makes parking nice and precise as you can maneuver slowly into a tight space. But for some reason it wouldn't disengage the parking… » 4/17/14 12:09pm Thursday 12:09pm

Is this an inside joke I am simply missing? CamEro edition mini rant!

How can there be this many stupid people who are unable to simply spell the type of car they have correctly? An obscure… » 4/14/14 1:09pm 4/14/14 1:09pm

Racing and cars not a woman-friendly hobby? Oh, I wonder why?

How abouts we start actually getting girls at a young age involved in cool stuff (e.g. models, legos, electrics) instead of forcing dolls and other asinine shit on em? (Sorry for mini-rant, but this "installed by enterprise policy" virus is pissing me off among other things, like excessive assholes.) Have an awesome… » 4/04/14 9:13pm 4/04/14 9:13pm

Second Rant: this one is semi-humorous though

This one of the pictures I submitted in my photo class for our assignment to shoot "old things." My teacher is a bit of a dick to everybody and is known for being a narrow-minded asshole. I give me my presentation giving the history behind my photos to the class. He tells me "Hey Bandit, I can't obviously tell if this… » 3/19/14 8:29pm 3/19/14 8:29pm

I have two semi-car related rants tonight, here's the first one

My high school puts on a car show every year. This year they asked me to design their shirts and flyers (they were absolutely dreadful looking in the past). My mother is a graphic designer so I've grown up knowing how to make well designed things on indesign and photoshop. This is what I created using the restrictions… » 3/19/14 7:50pm 3/19/14 7:50pm
