Students to give refurbished car to family in need at Oxnard event

A dozen high school students will hand over keys to a car they’ve fixed up for a family in need on Saturday in Oxnard.

The moment will cap off a vehicle-heavy day that starts with a car show in Port Hueneme and a cruise through neighborhoods during which — with social distancing still a priority — residents can vote online for their favorite ride.

This year’s annual car giveaway through DRAGG, an after-school youth automotive program started by the Oxnard Police Department, has been updated with pandemic safety in mind. The car show, for example, won’t be open to the public and will be streamed online. The cruise is limited to about 65 participants who preregistered.

Apple (AAPL) May Reveal Key Details of Its Secretive Apple Car Project at Today’s “Spring Loaded” Event, According to a Credible Source

Apple Car, the iPhone manufacturer’s secretive EV program, has become the subject of a veritable frenzy as the rumor mill suggests that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) may reveal key aspects of its electric vehicle at the “Spring Loaded” event later today.

Bear in mind that a Korean report last week postulated that the Apple Car would be manufactured in collaboration with the joint venture between LG Electronics and Magna International (NYSE:MGA) – the LG Magna e-Powertrain.

As a refresher, Magna already has production contracts with around 45 OEM customers, including Toyota, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Volvo, Volkswagen (VW), and Fisker (NYSE:FSR). Recently, the company signed an agreement with the Israeli startup REE Automotive to build its
