This isn't the article that says these are going up for auction:

Hey, at least those i3s have a good reason to sport a black hood. I'd buy one at auction if the price was right.

Any moron should have known the i3 is a terrible squad car. The only reason I can think that LAPD chose it would be bribery.

The Bolt would probably make a decent squad car since the battery should last a standard shift, assuming the driver's seat was replaced with something comfortable for the average cop.

Wait, didn't they recently approve oil exports? Or was it LNG exports?


Record high export levels for crude may help explain it.

G'day all, Gas prices went up here in New Zealand, its nearly the price of gold, i went on a road trip and had to pay $7.83 per us gallon, down on the south island it was $8.21 per us gallon, we wish it was as cheap as in the us at only $2 or $3 dollar a gallon.
