Would you grab this Mopar muscle car?

You know what they say: Mopar or no car. And maybe that’s the answer to this rare 1971 Dodge Challenger convertible listed recently on eBay. The muscle car is still available to bid on, but at the writing of this article reserve hasn’t been met. It also carries a Buy It Now price of $39,995 – but is this Challenger worth that much?

We’ll just be frank here: the 1971 model year was the start of the classic Dodge Challenger’s decline. It was at the same time as most American muscle being neutered in favor of increasing pollution and fuel efficiency standards. For that reason, a lot of people won’t look at this Mopar favorably. A 1970 offers more power and is just more fun, so you have to take that into

The Saudi Arabia of Lithium Has a Calming Message for Car Makers

The nation sitting on half the world’s lithium reserves has a calming message for electric car makers: tougher environmental oversight won’t threaten future production of the metal used to make batteries.

Chile’s environmental regulator is working with other agencies to devise a plan for strengthening supervision of mining companies that pump out hundreds of liters a second of lithium-laced brine from beneath the Atacama salt flat. Under pressure from investors and customers, miners are already investing millions to reduce their footprint and they too say that shouldn’t constrain output.

While the main objective is to mitigate the impact on the fragile ecosystem and local communities, the new integrated approach to oversight shouldn’t jeopardize production in an era in which sustainability is a starting point, said Cristobal de La Maza, who heads the agency known as SMA. The Chilean expansion plans of Albemarle Corp.

While most car insurance refunds for the pandemic have ended, some insurers are offering discounts as motorists drive less | Business News

For instance, Henrico County-based Elephant Insurance announced in August that it would offer a discounted rate to customers working from home. The company said policyholders and spouses working from home and driving less would be eligible to receive the new discount, depending on the number of days driven to work and the customer’s occupation.

“Some part of the work force will be working from home for a while, and as long as they work from home they deserve this consideration,” said Alberto Schiavon, Elephant’s CEO.

State Farm, the nation’s largest auto insurer, started reducing auto rates in every state in May because of changes in driving behavior.

The company said the national average for those rate reductions is 11%, saving customers a total of about $2.2 billion. Rate changes depend on a customer’s individual renewals.

State Farm said its rate reduction went in to effect on July 27 for new

The Tech That Might Help Cyclists and Cars Coexist Safely

On the desolate streets of Manhattan during the bleak early days of the pandemic, Rosemary Sigelbaum found that riding a bicycle to work at Lenox Hill Hospital offered a desperately needed respite from the stress of 12-hour days witnessing the worst of the coronavirus’s frightening effects.

“It was quiet, and on my way home it gave me time to decompress,” Ms. Sigelbaum said of her commute between the Upper East Side and her home on the Lower East Side.

Those empty avenues of late March have given way to the city’s usual cacophony of traffic, just as more people are discovering the advantages of cycling to work: no crowded subways, buses or shared taxis. Bicycle companies have posted out-of-stock notices for the first time in years. Sales in May skyrocketed 103 percent compared with a year earlier, according to the NPD Group, a research firm.

Transportation is a typical household’s second-largest expense after housing. When you include fuel prices, repairs, insurance rates, license/registration, taxes, depreciation, and finance charges, the average annual cost that people spend on their car is $9,282, according to AAA.

Of course, if you own an old clunker you likely spend much less. You’re also paying less insurance because of depreciation, but
