On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Senior Editor Alex Kierstein. We talk about our favorite cars from the 1990s, and the ones we've been driving recently. We also speculate about the BMW M7, talk about the Mercedes-AMG GT four-door, and reach a consensus (sort of) in this week's "Spend My Money" segment.
New cars are safer than old cars. Yeah, we know. Obviously. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just released a report highlighting the added safety of newer cars and trucks over older cars and trucks, and attaching real data to an otherwise assumed theory is always a good idea.

The U.S. Senate on Wednesday invalidated Obama-era guidance aimed at preventing auto lenders from charging borrowers higher rates based on factors such as race or national origin. The Senate voted 51 to 47 to disapprove the guidance, which was issued in 2013 by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and regarded by critics as an overstep of the agency's powers.
Tesla batteries retain over 90 percent of their charging power after 160,000 miles, according to data gathered by a Dutch-Belgium Tesla owners group. According to its survey of over 350 owners, the EVs dropped about 5 percent of their capacity after 50,000 miles, but lose it at a much slower rate after that. If the trend holds, most Tesla vehicles will still have 90 percent capacity after around 300,000 km (185,000 miles), and 80 percent capacity after a whopping 800,000 km (500,000 miles).
Toyota's FJ Cruiser SUV ticked off most of the boxes the original FJ40 Land Cruiser did. It had two-door styling (thanks to hidden half-doors) and plenty of off-road capability from a traditional four-wheel-drive system and good ground clearance. But unlike the FJ40, the Cruiser never had a convertible option. At least one person decided that was necessary and had one converted to a convertible sometime in its life, and now it could be yours.

Let us now turn our attention to Necco Wafers. Specifically, the very fate of the age-old multi-colored gelatin candy, which is offered in seven flavors, amid the financial crisis of Necco, officially known as the New England Confectionary Co. What does this have to do with automobiles, you might ask? Well, a 23-year-old Florida woman named Katie Samuels has such fond memories of eating the confection as a child that she offered her car in exchange for wholesaler Candystore.com's remaining stoc
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Associate Editor Reese Counts and Senior Editor of Green John Snyder.

So you're buying a boring-old silver or black car because you figure those muted "colors" will help its resale price, eh? Well, as it turns out, going fun and bright might be a better call. Used-car search engine site ISeeCars.com recently analyzed more than 2.1 million sales of used cars from the 2014 model year and found wide variances in depreciation rates based on the color of the paint finish. Yellow cars held their values the best and depreciated 27 percent during the first three years of
