Posted Mar 19th 2014 12:31PM

Our hosts head to the Mojave Desert in California to compete in one of the most varied and extreme off-road races on the planet, the inimitable King of the Hammers. Jessi Combs has entered the event four times, but has yet to finish. For her co-pilot, Patrick McIntyre, this will be his first...

    Jessi's going solo this week as we check off another oft-requested item from our list of 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die.

    The List is back! The show took a hiatus after its first season, partly to give our hosts a much-needed break, and partly to gear up for its television debut on Speed – check out tonight's new episode at 10:30PM EST/PST. But Jessi and Patrick have finally returned to Autoblog, and they're ...

    1355255880

    Throughout the course of the year, we've had Jessi and Patrick check off some big items on our list of 1,001 Car Things To Do Before You Die – things like lap the Nürbugring, drive over 200 miles per hour and race in the Baja 1000. But one item has been conspicuously absent: conquering ...

    The List #0073: Drive the Nürburgring
    1353527760

    Any trip to the automotive mecca of Germany would not be complete without a visit to the famed Nürburgring, nor would a list called 1,001 Automotive Things To Do Before You Die. Thus, we've reached the whole point of Jessi and Patrick's trip to Germany: Drive the Nürburgring. Many ...

    1351623600

    We told you last time that Jessi and Patrick still had some items to check off The List after picking up a car from BMW via European delivery.

    The List #0414: Buy A Car For European Delivery
    1349809020

    Let's face it, the dealership experience when buying a new car is not very special. But when you're handing over serious stacks of cash for a car that you've dreamed of owning, the occasion calls for something more than a free car wash before you drive off the lot. That's where something like the ...

    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 #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 ...

    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 ...
