Jalopnik is on Instagram, you’re on Instagram, and we’re highlighting the best of it all every week using the #DriveFreeOrDie hashtag. This week, we’ve got Japanese firetrucks, dogs, Studebakers, racecars, and a whole bunch of other cool, fun and weird stuff.
Last week, we announced that we were going to start rounding up your best Instagram posts using #DriveFreeOrDie on a weekly basis. The first week is done, and we’ve got quite a show!
We here at Jalopnik are pretty proud of our Instagram feed. We love to show off what we’re driving, what we see on the street, and the occasional manufacturer photo of a Mitsubishi Pajero getting massive air. But there’s a whole world of Instagram we’ve been neglecting, and that’s where you come in.

U.S. Customs brutally crushed an illegally-imported and VIN-swapped Landy Defender this week and, well, car nerds aren't happy about it. How unhappy?

My fight against the check engine light still goes on, though, like an uncle with an extensive collection of pornography, I'm sure many of you were hoping I'd just keep it to myself. Well, like your pervy uncle, I won't. I can't. And, I'm not alone.
Little guy: 1. Honda: 0. That's the results from Round One of Honda v. Civic Hybrid Owner. Which isn't to say that Honda didn't make a valiant effort. And we've got the 120-page evidence packet they submitted to prove it. So how exactly did Honda try to take down Heather Peters?
Yesterday, Heather Peters proved one woman can strike a blow against a major automaker when she succeeded in a landmark California case against Honda for making false claims about fuel economy.The key? Take them to small claims court. With her help, we've created this definitive step-by-step guide to how she, like a…
Aside from the one commenter who called me a "whiny retard" who hates human joy and another describing a scenario that basically had me killing my mother, my call to ban the check engine light inspired thoughtful and insightful comments. But there were several commonly-occurring threads throughout your comments that I…
As much as I love just complaining about stuff, loudly and whiningly, sometimes it's even better to actually do something. Which is exactly what we've done, regarding my screed about the need for something better than the "check engine" light.
It's pretty easy to dismiss the "check engine" light as just stupid, because, well, it is. I suppose if you thought that the cause of smoke coming from under your hood had something to do with the floor mats, then, sure, the "check engine" light is handy, but beyond that, it's useless. But that's not the real problem.…

The U.S. law allowing the importation of grey-market cars that are 25 years old or older will stand. A petition to get the government to shorten the waiting period to 15 years failed to attract the necessary 25,000 signatures.
The chilling transcripts from Air France 447 reveal the central conflict dooming the 228 people aboard the plane was not between two inexperienced pilots, but between a pilot and the technology that was supposed to keep him safe that he didn't understand.
The U.S. constitution guarantees citizens the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. And who's more aggrieved than people who want to bring cool, gray-market cars into the states? Sign a petition, and we all might get our wish.
Back in February, we reported that an insurance company had sued the U.S. Department of Justice claiming it was stonewalling responsibility for an FBI agent wrecking a stolen Ferrari F50. Turns out the FBI can wreck your sports car — as long as the agents are on the clock.
Fie, fie on government and its sticky DNA of red tape! Thank the stars the New York Department of Motor Vehicles is cutting some freedom holes in its bureaucratic wet blanket by dropping the vision test from license renewals. Can you see me now?
