I live in the middle of the freakin' desert. For me to visit the next closest metropolitan areas, I have to travel further than the German Army did when it invaded Poland in WW2. And, beyond the distance, I have to change elevation dramatically to do so. » 2/06/15 1:38pm 2/06/15 1:38pm

"When you pay the best, you can afford to be picky as hell about who works for you." No. You can't. To be fired from the UAW, you pretty much have to be caught doing drugs on shift. Poor performance? Oh, that means they weren't trained properly.... The list goes on. » 1/30/15 10:58am 1/30/15 10:58am

I'm all for a scoop, but Chris Doane Automotive is allowed to fly a drone over the General Motors Proving Grounds in Milford for spy shots, ie. commercial photography? Isn't that alone illegal? » 1/08/15 1:52pm 1/08/15 1:52pm

Quite possible it is on loan/rented. If I recall, Ken Block took an EarthRoamer to Hanksville, UT for a week and a half on a photo shoot a few months ago. May have even been this exact vehicle. » 12/30/14 12:58pm 12/30/14 12:58pm

Own a 2003 A4 Quattro 1.8t with 134k miles on it. I have a love/hate relationship with this car. Love: Handling, Quattro, Styling. Hate: German plastic in the desert, interior bits that dissolve from skin oil, maintenance, one time use clamps. » 11/24/14 6:38pm 11/24/14 6:38pm

VORE's primary business is to put tourists in desert/short course trucks and drive around their track in Boulder City. This is just a people mover - to pick up tourists on the Vegas Strip and take them to their dirt track in Boulder City. They also run the successful Raptor Roundups for Ford. » 10/30/14 4:40pm 10/30/14 4:40pm

No. Just, no. Rental companies self-insure. No carfax notes, no history reported at all. They repair wrecked vehicles themselves to whichever grade they deem appropriate. All they want to do is get it back in the fleet ASAP to generate more income. » 10/29/14 12:42pm 10/29/14 12:42pm

"I didn't read the article, so let me comment about something I know nothing about and didn't care to read about". Sums up most internet chats perfectly. » 8/05/14 1:26pm 8/05/14 1:26pm

Just actually build it right. Different suspension, shocks, track width, etc... I'm amazed at how manufacturers try and compete with the Raptor by throwing a body kit and stickers on an existing vehicle. » 7/17/14 3:12pm 7/17/14 3:12pm

Tanner - Just want to say thank you. Last year at GRC Vegas my (then) 7-year old pestered you with questions and you graciously spent some time with him. He's been an avid supporter and is a huge fan. Also, he's being surprised with some of the new kids-sized TF gear. Just wanted to say thank you for inspiring the… » 7/17/14 2:59pm 7/17/14 2:59pm

GRC is a great event. Access to the drivers and the cars make it so. I shared this last year after the GRC Finale in Vegas: http://jalopnik.com/http-img-gawke... - I will definitely be back again this year with my son. And, most likely my daughter (6), since she has been begging to go too. » 5/14/14 5:16pm 5/14/14 5:16pm
