Sweden’s Båstnäs Car Cemetery

If you made a list of your top 50 excursions for your next trip to Sweden, a visit to a junkyard probably wouldn’t be on it. Unless you’re a car enthusiast who can spend hours happily peering under the hoods of various rusty, out-of-use cars, the prospect of dedicating a day to visiting an old auto-parts shop isn’t very appealing. Unless, of course, that abandoned junkyard is the Båstnäs Car Cemetery. Located deep in the forest of Värmland, on the Swedish border with Norway, the Båstnäs Car C...

All bets are off as Hertz pulls plan to issue $500 million in new stock

Hertz, which filed for bankruptcy last month, halted its $500 million stock offering Wednesday after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission told the rental company it would review its controversial plan to sell shares that could soon be wiped out completely.

Software shares set new records as tech rallies

In another up for technology shares, software companies saw their values reach new heights today. The days trading comes after a selloff last week eased some of technology companies’ rebounds from their COVID-19 lows; stocks in tech companies have more than made up for their early-year declines in mid-2020, with the Nasdaq reaching 10,000 points before giving up some ground. Today the Nasdaq Composite index rose 0.15% to 9,910.53 points, just a few bips short of its all-time highs. A thematic te...

C8 Corvette Production Seems Cursed

Thanks to last year’s prolonged UAW strike and this year’s global pandemic, production of Chevrolet’s new Corvette is way behind schedule. As reported previously, GM had already dialed back the expected number of 2020 C8s headed to dealers by roughly 20 percent before the coronavirus touched down in North America. Unfortunately, reopening factories hasn’t magically […] The post C8 Corvette Production Seems Cursed appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

FCA Payday: Italy Readies $7.1 Billion for Automaker

Italy is on the cusp of approving a 6.3 billion-euro ($7.1 billion) loan for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Maxxed Out: Yamaha TMAX 500 by Unikat Motorworks

Folks who ride motorcycles today often started out on scooters, especially in Europe. But Maciej Bielawski of Poland did it the other way round. “I’ve been riding motorbikes since I was a child, starting in the 80s,” he tells us. “But then I switched to scooters. Why? Because they’re easy, especially in the city where I live.” We can see his point. Some modern maxi-scooters offer motorcycle levels of performance, but with tons of extra convenience—especially for touring or city commuting. ...

Just how fewer Japanese vehicles made a boat trip in May is cause for concern for their […] The post Flood Turns to a Trickle As U.S. Demands Fewer Cars From Japan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
