Bush--'Warm Machine'

Bush--'Warm Machine'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Where would we have been in the early ‘aughts without this band? It was tough to be a fan from like, 2001-2009, but still. They taught us so much. “This is the night. This is the sound.” Thank you for your service Gavin Rossdale, I was very confused before this song.

The Feds Want You To Leave Your Emotional Support Animals At Home

The Feds Want You To Leave Your Emotional Support Animals At Home

Flying is already hell, and the fascists at the U.S. Department of Transportation want to make everything even more stressful by proposing some new rules “to amend the definition of a service animal in air transportation and includes safeguards to ensure safety and reduce the likelihood that passengers wishing to travel with their pets on aircraft will be able to falsely claim that their...

Tesla Finally Cracks A Ban On Direct-To-Consumer Sales On The Big Three's Home Turf: Report

Tesla Finally Cracks A Ban On Direct-To-Consumer Sales On The Big Three's Home Turf: Report

Even though direct-to-consumer car sales, Tesla’s preferred sale model, have been banned in Michigan since 2014, you can still spot a few Model Ss and 3s bravely traversing the state’s icy roads. Brave, because Michigan law bans Tesla from even opening up a service station. Michigan Tesla owners have been treking, sometimes towing, to Ohio to get cars serviced, but that seems to be ready to...

It’s my husband’s birthday and, while he doesn’t work directly for Jalopnik, he is an integral behind-the-scenes player. This one goes out to my personal favorite metal head and member of Jalopnik’s support staff.

Something a little different this morning from Michigan’s favorite son (sorry Stevie Wonder, Jack White, Alice Cooper, Bob Segar and Iggy Pop. Not sorry, Kid Rock.)

Michigan's 75 MPH Speed Limit Has Lead To More Speeding, Crashes, And Injuries: Report

Michigan's 75 MPH Speed Limit Has Lead To More Speeding, Crashes, And Injuries: Report

One year after the state of Michigan raised speed limits on certain roads, those stretches of highway saw a 17.2 percent rise in crashes and an 18.9 percent rise in injuries, as a new report from the state details. What’s interesting is that these are lower numbers than some critics expected, and they speak to challenges bigger than just changing a number on a few signs.

Michigan raised the...

This Cats PSA From The U.S. Department Of Transportation Makes Me Think We're All Going To Be OK

This Cats PSA From The U.S. Department Of Transportation Makes Me Think We're All Going To Be OK

I recently started writing up a new musical, Cars, in which a clan of disturbingly horny sedans and wagons compete through song and dance to be lifted via an electromagnetic crane to Junkyardside, but then this morning our fearless leader Mike Ballaban pointed out that that show was already written, but about Cats. That seems weird to me, but what’s even weirder is that the world of cars had...

Why does this already sound like the anthem of 2020?

Sunday's Best Deals: Apple AirPods, Anker USB-C Charger, Civilization VI, Kindle Sale, and More

This school bus at The Henry Ford Museum is from 1927 might just be the oldest still existing in the U.S. Brings back school day memories for the majority of you, doesn’t it?

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

For some reason, my siblings and I listened to a lot of trucker music as kids. We have no truckers in the family, and both of my parents are normally rock n’ rollers, but something about trucker music connected them to a different America, which probably started in the...

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.

Looking over this year’s list of dead cars has this song ringing through my head, except it wasn’t just the Big Three that went on a killing spree this year. Ah well, no one is writing songs full of angst and garage rock fuzz about Smart.

Good News for People Who Love Bad News is the album that introduced the larger world to Modest Mouse. It also came out in 2004, if you aren’t feeling old yet this morning.

Uber's First-Ever Safety Report Reveals 3,045 Sexual Assaults And 9 Murders In 2018

Uber's First-Ever Safety Report Reveals 3,045 Sexual Assaults And 9 Murders In 2018

Uber has been under fire for rider and driver safety for years, and while reports of assaults, robberies and worse are regular fodder for local news, it was hard to know the extent of the problem—until now. Uber released its first safety report yesterday looking at two years of data and, while the practice of using ride-hailing apps is mostly safe, there are some alarming figures to be aware...

You Can't Buy This 850 Horsepower UPS Truck

You Can't Buy This 850 Horsepower UPS Truck
Truck Yeah The trucks are good!Prev NextView All

You may think this UPS truck was removed from Iron Horse Auction because it’s a four-ton, 850 horsepower beast designed for NASCAR and thus isn’t meant for the streets trodden by the common man, but you’d be wrong. They weren’t trying to save pedestrians or the pinks slips of all the FedEx and Amazon drivers you’d challenge. The only reason you...

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Won't Go Full N

The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Won't Go Full N

When the 2020 Hyundai Sonata dropped at the New York Auto Show in April, we declared ourselves extremely here for it, which is not something we normally say about a midsize sedan. We still are, but now our excitement has been slightly tempered with marketplace reality thanks to Wednesday’s confirmation that, while the Sonata will have an N Line variant, it won’t go full N.

You can probably...

On This Day, We Give Thanks For The Cars

It’s Thanksgiving y’all! And if there is one thing this holiday is good for, it is sharing trash takes with the people you barely see but are legally required to love. Families just don’t share their awful opinions over holiday food enough. Especially the ones about the cars.

Only problem is, you’re a Jalopnik reader. Your takes have been tempered in the heat of Kinja comments sections. They...

Lordstown Motors Insists It's A Real Company, Starts Accepting Pre-Orders Of $52,500 Electric Truck

Lordstown Motors Insists It's A Real Company, Starts Accepting Pre-Orders Of $52,500 Electric Truck

The Lordstown plant in Ohio was one of the sacrificial lambs of General Motors’ recent restructuring. The General sold the plant to an unlikely, recently formed automaker, Lordstown Motors Corp, earlier this month. And now Lordstown has both a vehicle and a site where you can pre-order said vehicle.

What kind of vehicle you may ask? Why, an electric truck! Besides the $52,500 price tag, the...
