I’m Driving To The 24 Hours Of Le Mans In This Porsche 911 GT3

I’m about to scratch a major item off my photography bucket list: I’m covering the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend for Jalopnik. And in addition to shooting the race and tracking how Porsche’s team in particular wages war on track for a day straight, I have a good ride in the form of this 911 GT3.

My Porsche 964 Road Trip Went Very South In West Texas

Two weeks ago Friday, I kicked off what was planned to be a badass drive from Austin to Los Angeles, delivering my friend’s Porsche 964 to him. I’ve driven from Austin to LA a few times, even in another Porsche, back when I had a 997. I drive across Texas once a year, as I have a habit of buggering off to Marfa to do…

Escaping Hell In A Miata

I’m not sure what to say to Alli. “I’m sorry” just feels so meaningless. I’ve repeated it too many times over the last week. I said it to Teo every time he smiled at me. Every time I changed his diaper. Every time I made his bottle. The phrase now feels so hollow and does nothing but add to my sorrow. I lean over the…

Streamline Group Vacation Planning With Kayak’s New ‘Trip Huddle’ Feature

Planning trips with friends can be a tremendous and painful undertaking. Depending on your group, you’ll either end up with a bunch of people who just want you to figure everything out on your own (so they can complain about it when you do), or a group of highly-opinionated friends who all have their own ideas on what…

This Wonderful Loon Is Driving A 1919 Air-Cooled Franklin All Around America

Sometimes, I have moments where I feel like a badass because I regularly drive some pretty old cars. But like every moment where I feel like a badass, it’s very short-lived, because I remember that people like Jim Eby exist. He’s about to drive a 99-year-old air-cooled Franklin on a massive trip all over the country.

Some Advice On Driving To The Arctic Ocean

“Yeah, there’s a non-zero chance of polars bears,” is always a good thing to hear when planning a road trip.

Here Is Your Mega Gallery From One Lap Of America 

There is only one racing road trip that can trace its roots directly to the original and famed Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial. Brock Yates’ 1 Lap Of America is that successor, and it’s going on right now. A bit more legal and less subversive than The Cannonball, the event has morphed into an annual road…

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas Towed My Classic VW Race Car Across The Country

When a 24 Hours of Lemons team offered me a free Volkswagen Type 4—the largest air-cooled car VW ever made—I had to haul it more than 2,000 miles from California to Texas. Seemed like a perfect opportunity to find out if the 2018 Volkswagen Atlas can haul families and one of its ancestors, right?
