Thieves drive muscle cars off lot – Greenfield Daily Reporter

GREENFIELD — A late-night visit to a car dealership from a vehicle filled with people turned into a theft when two high-performance muscle cars were driven away.

One of the vehicles was recovered; police are still looking for the other one and the suspects.

The Greenfield Police Department is investigating the incident, which happened around 3 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 15.

Chuck McMicheal, GPD’s deputy chief and public information officer, said officers were alerted to suspicious activity at Dellen Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 2640 W. Main St., after an employee at a nearby business watched a vehicle pull into the Dellen lot. The witness saw people get out to look at a car. A few moments later, the witness said, the car’s lights came on, and the witness called 911.

A few moments after that, a total of three vehicles left the parking lot, the witness told officials.

The two vehicles stolen from the dealership were a black 2017 Dodge Charger Hellcat and an orange 2018 Dodge Charger Hellcat. The third vehicle that left the lot was the vehicle that arrived with the suspects. All three vehicles headed west on U.S. 40, McMichael said.

Officers from the New Palestine Police Department and Cumberland Metropolitan Police Department located the vehicles at U.S. 40 and Mt. Comfort Road. They observed them heading north on Mt. Comfort Road. A pursuit was initiated but terminated a few minutes later, McMichael said.

The 2018 Charger was later recovered, abandoned, in Indianapolis by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.

GPD detectives are continuing to investigate the theft and will be searching the recovered vehicle for evidence. McMichael noted thefts of similar vehicles have been occurring in nearby communities

“We are working with them to identify suspects,” McMichael said of police departments in those areas.

No arrests had been made by the Daily Reporter’s deadline on Wednesday.

NASCAR’s newest Next Gen cars may be designed to make these vehicles as symmetrical as possible, but some teams have already found a way around the rules. During this week’s test session at Daytona International Speedway, some cars have been running some fairly excessive skew — and right now, it could very well be totally legal.

Basically, skew refers to the angled nature of the NASCAR Cup Series car. The front end looks like it’s pointing in a different direction than the car is actually going, which gives the whole thing a sort of crab-walk look. The rear axle is mounted on a skew when compared to the whole chassis. For…….

The speed by which electric vehicles have taken over Norway has stunned even the cars’ enthusiasts. [Asya Demidova/The New York Times]

Last year, Norway reached a milestone. Only about 8% of new cars sold in the country ran purely on conventional gasoline or diesel fuel. Two-thirds of new cars sold were electric, and most of the rest were electric-and-gasoline hybrids.

For years, Norway has been the world leader in shifting away from traditional cars, thanks to government benefits that made electric vehicles far more affordable and offered extras like letting electric car owners skip some fees for parking and toll roads.

Still, electric car enthusiasts are stunne…….
