    There’s No Good Evidence That Hydroxychloroquine Fights COVID-19

    Even though there’s no robust, convincing evidence to suggest that it does any good, President Trump continues to tout the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19.

  • 11 Modern Cars That Won’t Be Collectible In The Future

    “Modern classic” is a phrase that’s been used to describe any number of legitimately special automobiles produced over the last 25 years.

It takes more than power and intent […] More

    Volvo joins automakers siding with California on emissions, opposing Trump administration

    Donald Trump last week gutted fuel economy standards, a direct attack on electric vehicles. The move further separates federal emissions standards from California’s strong zero-emission rules.

    It never fails to surprise me about how poorly major automakers kept records up until quite recently.
