      Thanks, there's actually three pieces by Jalopnik writers in Autoweek's future writers issue (Stef, Raph and Travis). Everyone should go out and buy Autoweek if they don't already subscribe.

      LOL. Someone on here (Crimping?) said that if he had funds to start his own car mag he'd hire Chris Harris and me and then fire me. Met you halfway!

      Yea, I've driven both (just finished driving the Mercedes C300 this week). As the base C-Class is auto-only and automatically AWD I feel like the 3-series is a much better value. That being said, the...

      Sweet!



      Awww man, I just got the seat to exactly the right height. Can I take the seat with me?

      Oh ****, I forgot I wrote that article! Man, what a cool car.

      In my limited experience, I think you can do ok with a lot of short quick hits (which is sometimes clickbailty nonsense) and you can do ok with a lot of in-depth, niche work. The challenge, and the...

      No, still alive. The management of the company moves to LA, the production staff seems to have been impacted, and some editorial employees let go. Those who didn't (it's not a huge team) move to the...

      Oh man, 2011. So long ago. Thanks for reminding me of this post, trolling par excellence.

      In the meantime, here's a post from 2014 you might enjoy about us "borrowing" every generation of the GTI...

      I wish that were true, while I believe most people here would be smarter than that, we've had a lot of responses from people who were either scammed or were about to be and saw our articles. Most of...
    13. Thank you sir.

      Thank you sir.

      Hired or published? To get hired you have to have a great pedigree (our writers come from Wired, the Financial Times group, Business Insider, The Onion) and be a little insane, but if you just want...

      There's no quota. We have eight full time writers and editors who get paid a salary and they have no set number of articles they're supposed to write, plus a lot of other contributors so that "300"...

      Agreed, and more people should. What we've learned from OppositeLock (here if you haven't seen it: http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/) is that a lot of people have great stories they've never told....

      If our work only counts if it's something that meets your level of intelligence then nothing would count, because you're clearly the smartest man alive.

      Your personal issue aside, just look at Patrick's great Super Replicas work for instance:

      Or his work on Fed checkpoints:

      Since this thread is about to get locked anyways:

      The writers for Jalopnik are some of the best journalists in the business, even if everything they do isn't journalism. Sometimes it's just...
