John’s concours posts at Jalopnik.com

Here are concours related articles we’ve had posted on our blog page at Jalopnik.com, the automotive news source that’s popular with car enthusiasts where average ages – sorry to say – are about half that of the most concours participants.

According to Wikipedia, Jalopnik covers car culture and the automotive industry with content that emphasizes irreverent humor.

For a lighter look at the concours scene, click the links below for blog posts by John Olman, editor and founder of www.ConcoursDates.com. The discussion comments are insightful. Feel free to join in. And if you have an idea, photo or video that might be of interest to Jalops, send us an email.

The number of reader views are shown, not to brag, but to demonstrate that while the concours hobby is dominated by the older demographic, younger enthusiasts are indeed interested. Many of the millions of young Jalopnik readers would probably not routinely follow the concours scene. So, for example, when Jalopnik published the “Tall Man” video post, it became a learning opportunity for many car lovers who were unfamiliar with pre-war sports cars and that not only are they drivable, but raced as well.




How to post on Jalopnik, even anonymously.

Jalopnik explains:

The comment system is designed so that you can register and post anonymously. Not even we will know who you are.

Here’s how to ensure that you register anonymously. When you create your username, choose one that’s unrelated to your real identity. Then, add an anonymous nickname in your user profile. We won’t be able to link your username/nickname with your offline self.

We do ask for an email address so that we can email a new password in case you forget it. To preserve your anonymity, use an anonymous Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail account. Or, if you want to remain totally under the radar, and you’re good at remembering passwords, leave the email field blank.
