  • 30 Vehicles charred by the flames at a Chevy dealership
    19 Jul 2017

    Sometimes you simply leave your car for service, and instead of getting it back fixed, you don't even get to see it at all, because it burned completely, until nothing has been left from it. This Tuesday night at this Chevrolet dealership, shortly after 7 p.m. a janitor was cleaning in the service building at Buff Whelan Chevrolet in Sterling Heights, Mich., and spilled cleaning supplies, causing what the fire chief called a "big ball of flame to erupt." About 30 vehicles were destroyed in a blaze. No one was reported injured, fire officials said. The cost of the damage...

  • McLaren's revealing 70 percent increase from 2015 profits
    30 Jun 2017

    McLaren Automotive has been rumored to be bought by Apple back in 2016, but why sell a company which does so well on its own? Of course the car maker isn’t planning to do any of this, because its lineup brought it to record profitability and sales in 2016.  The automaker reported Thursday that pretax profits for 2016 were 9.2 million pounds ($11.9 million) on revenue of $844.7 million. That's a 70 percent increase from 2015 profits and marks the fourth consecutive year of profits for the independent McLaren brand. Much of the company's higher profit tally in 2016 reflec...
