Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. Shop trucks are part of life for any joint that’s painting, restoring, and upgrading power in various cars and trucks.

I had never driven any drift car of any kind before Tony Angelo put me in the seat of his competition car, a 705-horsepower, nitrous-shot Scion FR-S.
