Anyone with a love for vintage Mopars knows the 1969 Dodge Charger is about as rare as it gets. If you can find one that hasn’t been crashed by the Duke brothers or cobbled together from mixed-number parts, then you’re on to something special. Such is the case with this rust-free, original example that’s popped up on eBay with seemingly all the deets to prove its value. In other words, this seller “knows what he’s got.”
The seller says that all of the car is original, down to the body panels, and notes that the only real bodywork that has been done is a patch to the floor that was supposedly fabricated by a master metal worker. Under the hood, there’s a massive 383-cubic-inch motor (that’s 6.3 liters) mated to a Torqueflite three-speed automatic. That engine seems enormous, but it was only a mid-range offering in the Charger line at the time. There were two other V8s, a 426 c.i. Hemi (7.0 liters) and a 440 c.i. (7.2 liters), above it in the hierarchy.

This Charger got a new set of wheels with B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A tires and a long list of new parts before the seller’s health forced him to put it into storage, where it has been for the last two years.
So, we’ve got a rust-free car with just 75,000 miles on the clock. Still, it’s not quite perfect—at least as it sits. The seller says there are a couple of holes in the headliner and notes that at the very least it will need a new battery after having been parked for so long. There’s also the black paint, which was sprayed on over the car’s factory medium green paint. So even though the numbers match all around, a buyer would need to pony up more cash for a paint job to make it 100 percent factory correct.
There’s no doubting this car’s rarity. The auction still has about four days left at the time of this article, but just know it’ll take more than its current high-bid of $39,000 to take it home. Who knows what the reserve has been set at, but a previous eBay auction for the car ended at $40,000 and it wasn’t enough for the seller to part ways with it.

BMW i8 Production Ends With 18 Uniquely Colored Cars

BMW i8 production has come to an end, but the Germans made sure the hybrid sports car went out with a bang by making each of the final 18 examples in unique colors. These were shades that were never before applied to the vehicle during its production run.
BMW said that building 18 cars consecutively in a one-off color posed a challenge. It forced technicians to paint them by hand. The company also had to work with suppliers to get some components in the custom shade.
“For BMW i8 production to end with a finale like this is something we can all be very proud of,” Hans-Peter Kemser, the director of the factory, said.
Many of the customers for these final vehicles belonged to the BMW i8 Club International. Some of these members were present when the vehicles rolled off the assembly line.
The final vehicle of the production run was an i8 Roadster in Portimao Blue. Over the six-year production run, BMW built around 20,500 examples of the i8.
While the i8 wasn’t a massive sales success, it’s future on the second-hand market could be fascinating. The relatively low production run, eye-catching appearance, and brisk performance might be a recipe for a future collector’s item. With production beginning in 2018, there are even fewer units of the i8 Roadster versus the coupe out there.
There’s no sign of BMW replacing the i8 with another hybrid sports car on a dedicated chassis. However, the brand is rapidly adding plug-in-hybrid models to the lineup. Just in 2020, there’s the introduction of the 330e, X2 xDrive25e, and X5 xDrive45e. Even more PHEVs and EVs are on the way because of stricter emissions rules forcing the company to build cleaner powertrains.

Convertibles Are Statistically Safer Than Their Hardtop Counterparts: Study

Convertibles get their fair share of ribbing from enthusiasts due to their flimsy frames and heavier curb weights, but a new study from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety shows that while they may not be the most desirable cars in terms of objective performance, they’re statistically no more dangerous than the fixed-roof versions of the same vehicle. In fact, they’re safer. Statistically speaking.
The author of the study, Eric Teoh, is quick to point out that while convertibles may be safer on paper, they’re not physically safer or more protective of drivers in the real world. But drawing from an NHTSA data pool of 1-5 year-old coupes and convertibles driven between 2014-18, the IIHS found that the droptops had 6 percent fewer police-reported crashes per mile traveled than their coupe counterparts, and driver fatality rates were 11 percent lower as well. This is all despite the higher likelihood that the driver or passengers will be ejected from the vehicle during an accident.
Why exactly? Teoh speculates that convertible drivers on the whole might be less likely to drive aggressively or in inclement weather—in other words, they’re out for a nice cruise.
The IIHS also notes that—while convertibles are perfectly safe—having a stronger roof on a car makes injury less likely. That’s why we’ve all seen the pillars on cars growing in the past few years—NHTSA has begun testing roof-crush resistance more aggressively. But vehicles with either fabric-covered or rigid retractable roofs are exempt from these requirements. In fact, the report states that “convertibles have remained a low priority for the [crash] testing program due to their small sales volumes.”
This low-priority on the testing docket, as per the study, has not led to more fatalities. It has also not stopped manufacturers from taking matters into their own hands. Nearly all convertibles for sale today are equipped with either fixed or pop-up rollbars to prevent passenger injury or death.
So if you want to feel the wind in your hair, hear that motor a bit better, and smell all of those lovely smells wafting through their air you just can’t when you’re uh…couped up in a coupe, then have no fear. You’re not driving around in anything less likely to save your life.
