Jalopnik

I'm sure some of you follow Jalopnik.
They have some pretty great car stuff sometimes.
Just thought it would be cool to have a place to post some up without starting a new thread every time.

Anyway, I thought this was interesting.
My Ford Focus Is Actually An Aston Martin

Some of their original content is good, the pieces about their personal cars and reviews can be good. They just started a new buyers guide that seems like it could be useful.

They are at least getting a little better at pointing out when they get their news from Reddit. I could do with out all of their lists though; half of them are just a little too cheesey/click bait-y. Every once in a while they will have a top list i enjoy though.

Buzzfeed headlines in a nutshell:

10 reasons why the focus is a terrible car, you wont believe #6!
10 reasons why the focus is a great car, #13 is incredible!
10 cars that are to car for the focus.
10 cars that are to reason to car.
10 reasons that are too focus to car.
10 car focus reasons that will shock you.
10 to focus and reasons will not believe you.


I'ts all about traffic and money. Investing into quality content has zero value to them.
