Low Mileage 1993 GMC Typhoon Is An Immaculate Performance SUV

The turbocharged GMC Typhoon, based on the S10 Blazer/Jimmy, was an all-wheel-drive monster. Its performance figures speak for themselves: 285 turbocharged horsepower. Zero to 60 in 5.3 seconds.

Like so much of the automotive world, Trans-Am was not quite what it once was by the early 80s. The rise of IMSA GT made what was once the racing home of America’s greatest performance road cars into a secondary player in the sports car racing market in one short decade.

Here’s Why Cars.com Stock Is Bucking the Trend Today

What happened

Shares of automotive marketplace platform Cars.com (NYSE:CARS) are bucking the trend in the markets today. While the Dow Jones Industrial Average is dropping almost 1,000 points, or 2.75%, Cars.com stock is soaring. As of 11:39 a.m. ET, Cars.com shares were trading near highs of the day, up just over 19%. 

So what

The surge in shares comes on the first trading day after it was announced that Cars.com stock will be added to the S&P SmallCap 600 index. That change won’t occur until Dec. 2, but a move into an index will cause some mutual and exchange-traded index funds to buy the shares. That has other investors jumping in ahead of them today.
