    The List: The List #0180: Work As A Professional Stunt Driver
    1344970620

    Working as a professional stunt driver is one of the most popular requests we get for The List. Making it happen, however, has proven to be a challenge. It isn't as simple as crashing a Hollywood set and sticking our hosts, Jessi and Patrick, behind the wheel of a car meant for Keanu's character. ...

    The List: The List #0360: Learn to Drift
    1343242680

    To let a car do what it wants is very different than making it do what you want. It's the difference between a car's rear end getting loose in a corner and the intentional act of drifting. There's a huge chasm of skill that lies between the two, though the end result might look the same ...

    The List: The List #0096: Photograph Your Car Like A Pro
    1340823540

    Photographing cars is near and dear to our hearts at Autoblog. We're proud of the images we publish in our reviews because we take nearly all of them ourselves rather than hiring photographers to do the work for us, and the man who sets the bar for our team is Director of Photography, Drew ...

    The List: The List #0325: Buy A Used Car Online
    1339527480

    Buying a used car online has become a new rite of passage in the Internet Age. eBay Motors, Craiglist and a myriad of other online auto shopping sites facilitate the ritual, and the need for a new set of wheels is all the motivation that's required. We found ourselves with just such a need, ...

    The List: The List #0051: Build a Car
    1338308880

    Building your own car is another activity that viewers often request we cover on The List. Assembling a kit car or doing a ground-up restoration of a relic barn find seemed like obvious choices, but weren't very practical. So we donned our thinking caps and came up with a cool alternative to the ...

    The List: The List #0187: Escape an Automotive Attack
    1337126220

    It's one thing to protect yourself on the road against bad drivers who might cut you off or ride your bumper on the highway. It's quite another to do that when those drivers have guns and want to kidnap the diplomat in your back seat. While the latter scenario may sound unlikely, many drivers in ...

    The List: The List #0200: Drive 200 MPH
    1335887820

    We keep track of every idea that you submit for The List. Of the hundreds we get after each episode airs, one is without question at the top of everyone's list: drive 200 miles per hour. Despite the first production car eclipsing 200 mph back in the mid-'80s, we thankfully aren't yet jaded by ...

    The List: The List #0041: Attend A Major Car Auction
    1334678220

    When you think of major car auctions, you probably think of Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. That's the one that came to mind for us, which is why we sent Jessi and Patrick to experience its sights and sounds this past January. Not only did they come away with what it's like to be inside the big ...

    The List: The List #0032: Go Ice Racing
    1333468620

    Despite the unusually warm winter we're having this year, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have Jessi and Patrick check ice racing off The List. So we sent them to New York to meet our good friend and ice-racing expert, Engadget.com editor-in-chief Tim Stevens, for an inside look at this ...

    In case you hadn't noticed, we're now actively using your suggestions for new episodes of The List. We started the series with a few of our own, but suggestions from viewers like you have been flooding our inbox since the first episode. Race in the 24 Hours of LeMons? That was your idea.

    The List: The List #0060: Visit an Automotive Museum
    1331053080

    Not every item on your list of 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die will involve racing through the night across Baja, crushing cars with a tank or surviving the world's silliest test of endurance. This week we slow things down a bit with an oft requested item for The List: Visit an automotive ...

    The List: The List #0024: Race in the 24 Hours of LeMons
    1328635560

    While we've already sent Jessi and Patrick to a professional driving school, there's no way their on-track training could prepare them for the the 24 Hours of LeMons. This relatively recent phenomenon of endurance racing with $500 beater cars has grown into a 20-race season for 2012 that, as the ...

    The List: The List #0433: Driving a Tank
    1327427820

    The List is about fulfilling your wildest wheeled fantasies, and sometimes those wheels are bound and held in place by tank treads. Our latest episode takes Jessi and Patrick to Vikings country in the heart of Minnesota. It's Patrick's turn to indulge one of his childhood dreams, which means the ...

    The List: The List #0044: Race in the Baja 1000 - Part 2
    1326216600

    Jessi and Patrick spent the first part of this episode getting acclimated to Mexico while learning what was in store for them behind the wheel of a desert racer in the Baja 1000. In order to officially check this off The List, however, they had to actually race in this grueling and dangerous ...

    The List: The List #0044: Race in the Baja 1000 - Part 1
    1325611800

    Most auto enthusiasts have the urge to race in their hearts, but few of us ever actually get to compete in the world's toughest races. For this episode of The List, we're making sure that Jessi and Patrick check that one off early. Fulfilling one of Jessi's own childhood dreams, we've hooked up ...

    The List: The List is coming...
    1323459300

    There are all sorts of lists – grocery lists, to-do lists, bucket lists. We're particularly interested in the latter, because a life well lived is one with an empty bucket list at the end. With that in mind, next week we're premiering the first episode of The List: 1,001 Car Things To Do ...
