cheap car ins logoArticle by Aaron Crowe for

Car owners who have added turbochargers, nitrous oxide injection systems and other ways to amplify engine power may not drive fast and recklessly, as the stereotype may dictate. Instead, they may not drive it much, keep it in a garage or other safe place, and take care of regular maintenance. Those qualities can help get a better insurance rate. Even so, they may not get extra insurance for their vehicle modifications because they either think it’s too expensive or just don’t think of it. “Many of them, they just don’t get the extra coverage,” says Paul Nadjarian, founder of Mojo Motors, which helps people find used cars to buy.

Why Arizona’s Car Insurance is So Cheap (nerdwallet)

NerdWallet_LogoArticle written by Alice Holbrook for nerdwallet

If you’re an Arizona driver, you’re probably used to buying relatively cheap car insurance. Residents of the Grand Canyon State enjoy low insurance premiums, and there is at least one good reason for that: Arizona’s low minimum liability requirement. Why the controversy? “No one wants to increase prices and taxes on consumers,” says Paul Nadjarian, CEO of Mojo Motors, an auto buying website. “But is [leaving the minimums in place] the right thing to do? Probably not.” [keep reading]

In some respects, shopping for used electric cars is the same as shopping for any pre-owned vehicle. Models selling in high volumes straight from the factory dominate the used-car inventory; the most popular cars are scarce in used dealerships; and significant depreciation begins after three years of ownership.

What do NASCAR pros use as their daily drivers?

This may come as a bit of a surprise to some, but NASCAR Sprint Cup vehicles are not legal street-driven vehicles. In fact, NASCAR race cars are a lot different than the one you drive. So despite what you see in commercials, they are not the daily drivers of your favorite oval track hero. NASCAR success and fame comes with a nice payday, and the drivers can afford pretty much any vehicle made, which explains the wide variety found on this list of their rides of choice.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.


The Earnhardt family has been in Chevy dealerships for generations, and Jr has a particular affinity for the Camaro. A fourth generation Camaro could be bought with dealer modifications to become an “Intimidator SS”, and this process was repeated in 2011 with a fifth generation Camaro SS making 704 hp. Intimidator indeed. While Jr sells these at his dealership, he’d rather drive the older ones. He owns a silver 1967 Camaro rebuilt by Detroit Speed Inc., featuring a traditional small block Chevy v8 with aluminum heads and a carburetor running power to a five-speed stick. A different flavor is available with his orange 1972 Camaro. This one has a modern six-speed and LS2 v8, but the EFI has been ripped out in favor of a carb. Oddities of his collection include a 1977 Oldsmobile Cutlass, and a Pontiac G8 converted to look like a Holden Commodore. [keep reading]
