I’d wager that these two men, by the names of Chris Harris and Mike Spinelli, are among the only people ever to get a Ford Raptor stuck on a teeny little glacier such as this one in Iceland.
“Great car TV?!” you might be (rudely) exclaiming. “With no Top Gear or The Grand Tour?” you may ask, still being kind of hurtful. But yes, following our own Jalopnik show, Car vs. America, premiering on Fusion last night (which you can watch online here), our /DRIVE friends also return to TV tonight!
Oh man, is automotive TV shaping up to be quite excellent this season. On one hand, you have Jalopnik’s very own Car vs. America to look forward to (Oct. 18 on Fusion!). And on the other, you have /DRIVE, which is returning to NBC Sports on Oct. 19 for its fourth season.
There are exactly two types of TV shows about cars: sensationalized “build” dramas set to slow-motion footage of sparks, and Top Gear knockoffs. The latter “boy’s trip” motif tends to be a little more bearable so I’m excited to see what my friends have in store for the third season of /Drive on NBC Sports.
Emil Rensing, creator of the Fast Lane Daily YouTube channel and a partner in /DRIVE until it was sold to Time Inc. last year, was arrested by the FBI in New York today on charges of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.
It’s stylish, it’s loud, it’s fast, it’s comfortable and believe it or not, also dead reliable, as Mike Musto points out. What more can you ask from a ‘64 Ford?
Art can be judged on an almost infinite number of criteria from technical skill, monetary value, importance in an artist’s body of work, etc. The best criteria, we feel, is judging art based on how it makes you feel. When viewed in that context, the art created by Ornamental Conifer (aka Nicolai Sclater) is awesome.…
In /Drive’s latest series, Betim Berisha, an engineer responsible for some very fast Porsches tells you all about temperature management when it comes to increasing horsepower.
A Citroën Ami will always struggle to go up the hills of West Yorkshire, but if you’re a barber in a small town, you couldn’t ask for a more fitting company car.
Believe it or not, there was a time not that long ago when modifying a Porsche for any reason was considered a travesty. Keep in mind that this is at a time when most Porsches, 911s and 356s alike, were worth a fraction of what they are today. One of the men who changed the Porsche community’s perception of the…
When the /DRIVE crew came to Europe to film their Germany/Spa special for NBC Sports, I met up with them at the Belgian racetrack to check out what happens at one of their shoots.
The idea of a track day car, something designed solely to go as fast as possible on a track with almost no restrictions placed on the designer, is something that entered the automotive world’s collective conscience some time in the late nineties. They’ve always been the province of the more money than sense crowd, but…
The 1980s were a golden era for road racing both in the United States and Europe. The fields of cars were incredibly varied and competitive, the action was close, and the cars were FAST. No car was more dominant in endurance racing during this period than the legendary Porsche 962. Most race cars now have a…
I left Wisconsin full of energy. I had left my job and loaded my bike and all my gear in the back of the van and said my goodbyes...I had started my journey.
If your father bought a Mercedes SL back in the sixties, all you need to do is preserve it, because you won’t be needing a finer motorcar, ever.
I’m not kidding. In 2015, you can indeed have a brand new MGB created using the original tooling, powered by a Mazda 2.5 that will make it reach 62mph in 3.8 seconds. All the time.
The earliest XJ220s are past their 23rd birthday by now, and throughout all those years, it wasn't Jaguar who kept them alive, but Don Law Racing. Meet the father and son behind the amazing garage that went racing and built the ultimate XJ220, the LM.
Twisted Automotive is to Land Rover Defenders what Singer is to air-cooled Porsches. Once you've seen their products, only slightly twisted Defenders will do. With an LS3.
This week on AFTER/DRIVE, Zac and Mike join host Mike Spinelli to determine whether the new GT will be the raw, race-bred driving experience like our '66 GT40, or suffer from the driving nannies that plague so many modern supercars today.
If your business is restoring and selling old Italian race cars, you end up spending half of your day at home managing emails and researching the classics you're after. That means you also see more of how your kids grow up.
