Ten Good Collector Cars and trucks – Problem #1

An ad for Campbell’s soup capabilities a brother and sister coming in out of the cold to come across Mom with two steaming warm bowls of soup. Households eating meals with each other, traveling with each other and well- just simple being jointly are additional examples of how occasions have improved.

This trend lead me to start out accumulating and ultimately marketing these classic advertisements. I have heard some actually excellent concepts. Lots of of these ads adorn property bars, garages and playrooms. The very best tale to date is a purchaser that was likely to wallpaper their bathroom with vintage soap and perfume advertisements. Truly innovative! To see some of these wonderful adverts, check out out Http://www.Vintage-Advertisements.com

The Chevelle burst onto the automotive scene in the 1964 design year as a sedan, a station wagon, a convertible, and, most notably, a coupe. The coupe entire body model was the foundation for the Chevelle SS, an important auto all through the muscle motor vehicle era. The Chevelle lineup was an immediate achievement that supplied a small of anything for all people.

In 1966, Chevrolet thoroughly redesigned the body that they had utilized the two many years prior. In people initial two many years, the overall performance of a Chevelle with the a lot more powerful engines had uncovered some weaknesses in that original pattern. At very first, Chevrolet talked about the likelihood of scaling back again the motor lineup in purchase to make do with the body as it was. In retrospect, that would have likely been a deadly decision.

Luckily, Chevrolet made the decision versus that method. Just two decades in, Chevrolet also felt that the Chevelle’s existing human body model was outdated. The new “Coke-bottle” sort was coming into fashion, and Chevrolet didn’t like the search of the Chevelle system in comparison. Hence, they observed this as the perfect possibility to destroy two birds with the one proverbial stone.

In 1967, none of the changes have been as remarkable as a new frame, but there had been quite a several of them. Chevrolet even more tweaked very last year’s new body, which offered drivability enhancements across the total selection of Chevelles, but was particularly apparent with the SS versions. A govt mandate to include an vitality-absorbing steering column afforded the Chevrolet division an possibility to redesign the steering column. Improvements in this location were particularly visible in the muscled Chevelles at large velocity. The 67s also obtained a reworked bumper, a blackout tail panel, aggressive tires, 14-inch wheels, and front disc brakes.

Also in 1967, Chevrolet designated the SS as its individual motor vehicle, and that continued with the 1968 product. With the 1968 Chevelle, Chevrolet adjusted the entire body fashion all over again. This time they emphasized the Coke-bottle form even a lot more greatly, and they added a semi-fastback roofline for the hardtop coupe types. In late 1967, a new federal mandate necessary automakers to set up shoulder belts, and Chevrolet extra these belts at the conclude of the 1968 Chevelle’s operate. This is why you’ll encounter some ’68s with and not having the shoulder belts.

Chevrolet available the 1969 Chevelle for sale in a handful of trims: Chevelle 300, Chevelle Nomad, Chevelle Concourse, and the Chevelle Malibu.

Top 7 Disadvantages of Electric Cars

Soaring gas prices and environmental concerns, electric cars are becoming popular as an answer to some of the problems of the auto industry. However, do electric cars have a spotless reputation?

The following are their disadvantages of EVs voiced for some time now.

1. Charging Woes: Electric powered vehicles require charging stations, and for people to travel long distances there needs to be a network of such stations located strategically. Also recharging of batteries often takes about 3 hours, which nowhere matches efficiency of a gas refuel. And of course there’s the charging equipment you need to carry along.

2. Travelling distance (Range): The cars can travel only about a 100 miles on an average, and on a single charge. The technology of Chrysler’s proposed EVs is supposed to have the cars run longer, though.

3. Lack of power: In general electric cars are still behind gas powered vehicles in their ability to to accelerate and climb quickly.

4. Overloaded batteries: At the heart of electric automobiles are the car’s batteries. At the same time, as all other car accessories viz. radios, car air conditioners, etc. use up electric power from batteries, they’d drain quickly. And recharging them takes time!

5. They are expensive: Batteries that power these cars are a costly affair. Consider this: The promising and long-lasting lithium-ion batteries cost about US$10,000 each, which for the most part make these cars expensive. And if the batteries last only about 4 years, they could add to the maintenance costs.

6. The cause pollution: Yes, the ‘clean & green’ electric cars cause pollution too, albeit indirectly. While themselves being clean, there are toxic elements within batteries and which could spew toxic fumes. Further, the car’s engines are powered by electricity, and all of which isn’t generated from renewable energy sources. Which means electric power production per se entails pollution.

7. They’re Heavy: Batteries are what makes these vehicles heavy. A battery pack of an average electric car can weigh up to a 1,000 pounds or 450 kg (approx.) This a disadvantage because weight puts pressure on batteries and they drain out faster.

While the prospect of electric vehicles seems promising, electric vehicles don’t appear to be a pancea and have their own share of shortcomings. Consequently, a purchase decision in favor of EVs or hybrids might not be all that simple.

Classic Vintage Cars are Not Just Old Cars

Although the definitions might be different but what draws similarity between all the above mentioned terms is their relation to the past. Any old car might not be called a classic but a classic vintage car is definitely an old car that holds the characteristic features of a particular era. There are various conceptions in automobile lovers regarding the actual categorization of vintage and antique cars.

Solving the definition dilemma of classic vintage cars

Here we would deal with the terms veteran, vintage and classic sequentially. Firstly speaking of veteran cars, these are automobiles belonging to the pre – World War I era. Similarly a vintage car is a car that belongs to the era before the 1930s. Cars that fall in the time period from the 1930s to the World War II are termed as post vintage.

It is really a difficult task to draw a consensus over the definition of classic vintage cars. Some of the automotive organizations consider cars belonging to the 1940s as classics. On the other hand some other automobile organizations also refer to the cars belonging to the 1980s as vintage. However different the notions regarding classic or vintage cars be, all the automotive enthusiasts can deny the fact that a classic vintage car always possesses the ability to turn heads.

What makes a car qualify as a classic is its aesthetic appeal. Vintage cars might draw attention and appreciation of spectators owing to its timeless engineering beauty or design credentials that are symbolic of any particular era in the history. The classic vintage automobiles can be judged on the basis of three main ingredients namely age, desirability and rarity.

These beautiful machines always have an envy factor associated with them giving you a ride that others just dream of having. If the value of an old automobile model has sudden started showing upward trend from its previously falling nature it directly refers to one fact, i.e. it has reached the classic status. For instance the Ferrari Testorossa is one of the most famous classic cars in the present day.

Generally the restored version of a classic vintage car is priced lower than its concourse version. In the year 2013, July the most expensive car sold on auction was definitely none other than a classic model. It was the Mercedes Benz W196 Formula one car which was driven by none other than Juan Manuel Fangio also referred as the El Maestro in the racing world. This classic car was bid at a price as high as 19600000 euros.

However it’s not that modern day cars do not have the appeal of the classics.For instance the new Ferraris and Bugatti models are very well known as modern classics.

Electric cars in India

<!– @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } –>In the present age of depleting petroleum resources, car manufacturers have realized the importance of using alternate fuels to power cars. Lots of R&D is being done in this direction to come up with a technology so advanced which is both efficient and economical. One of the many solutions that are most likely to influence the future in a big way is the concept of electric cars. A number of automobile companies have developed their variants of electric cars. The concept of electric cars boasts off the idea of eco-friendly beauties across the world.

In India, he pioneer of popular electric cars has been the Reva Electric Car Company, which is a joint venture betweReprint in full with writer’s name, contact information and brief bio.en the Maini Group India and AEV California. The company began functioning in 1994 from Bangalore and soon launched the two-seater electric car we all know as Reva i. With specifications including top sped of 80 kmph, seating capacity of 2 adults and 2 kids, mileage of 80 km (Standard Model), 60km (Higher Models), Reva is available in three variants namely REVAi Standard, REVAi AC and REVAi Classe.

The E-Nano will come in association with Norwegian electric car specialist Miljoebil Grenland and is expected to be launched in 2010. Likewise, Japanese auto giant Mitsubishi is also working on its electric car project with plans using lithium-ion batteries for power. The Mitsubshi e-car would have a motor placed at the back of the car. Indian motorcycle manufacturer Hero motors is also planning its electric car by replacing the use of conventional batteries with capacitors for instant charging. The car is expected to be launched by 2013. Watch out for the upcoming era of electric cars in India.

Solar Power for Small Devices – Is it True?

Let’s get one thing straight, without electricity, there wouldn’t be a reason to live. The long power lines which can be seen crisscrossing the globe fill our homes with air conditioning, refrigeration and cool 108-inch plasmas. All this innovation has led to people using solar power to fuel their need for electricity, and today, we find more and more people getting increasingly interested in charging up smaller devices with the help of solar power. But, is this really viable, here we are going to talk about those small devices that can be charged directly by solar power technology.

Engineers have recently unveiled a circuit, which they say can power wearables along with other electronic devices with a steady power source via solar energy, which could also, someday fuel the growth for the Internet of Things. The two MIT engineers who have designed and developed the chip also say that the chip is much better at converting the captured energy by solar cells, and the invention seems to also lend itself well when it comes to the self powering electronic sensors.

The new chip was unveiled recently at the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits at Kyoto, Japan. We’ve all come to known that sensors is a crucial tool when it comes to the Internet of Things, and the very notion that devices can be linked to networks through which they can then deliver important information is mind blowing. This is where the new chip can actually prove to be useful. Apart from this, sensors are also used in electronic devices, including cars and planes along with having research applications as well.

But, the reality is that these devices require a power source, and carrying around batteries is certainly not a feasible option. Since devices need to have batteries which can last a long time, or atleast have the ability to recharge themselves, the new micro chip could one day provide that much needed power.

The only problem here is that solar power does have an efficiency problem, as in, circuits today are able to convert just half of the energy of solar cells, which means that most of that energy gets wasted, and is consequently the main reason why solar energy isn’t often considered practical when it comes to charging smaller devices which take up less space, or those gadgets that function in low light environment.

Keeping this in mind, the micro circuit which has been developed by Anantha Chandrakasan and Dina Reda El-Damak at MIT is basically an ultra low power circuit which is able to convert around 80% of the energy saved in solar panels into usable electricity. Furthermore, the new chip is able to power devices as well as charge batteries which are connected to those devices at the same time, which also happens to be another ability which has eluded circuits so far.

It is without a doubt that this new invention in solar technology will enable a new class of Internet of Things devices which will be able to use solar power technology, conserve more energy while offering the same output.

5 ways your car is becoming a smartphone on wheels

 
 

Cars are no longer just a solution to take us from point A to point B. In today’s world, where we are more connected to our homes, families, work, devices and friends, our vehicles are also keeping up with these advancing technologies. The modern car can help connect and direct us to, literally, steer down the right path. There are an array of features that are becoming mainstream and could transform the way you drive. Here is what might be in your future: 1. Safety: Proximity sensors to warn you of hazards ahead on the road, automatic-braking, and park assist are just a few of the technological advancements being included in new vehicles. 2. Vehicle information: Digital messages can let you know about looming issues like worn brake pads, a brake light that is about to burn out, or other problems well beyond what most current vehicles can sense. 3. Location information: Based on your specific location, your car will be able to provide suggestions for local restaurants, attractions and hotels in the area. 4. Communication: You will be able to connect to other devices, including other cars, phones, computers, home appliances and thermostats.

 

5. Data tracking: Information about vehicle speed, usage and driving tendencies will be collected by your vehicle. Among the uses for this information are usage-based insurance policies which set premiums based on driving behaviour. While our cars might be able to do more for us, what will it mean for our privacy? Vehicles are increasingly capable of transmitting information wirelessly, leading to questions about our privacy and security. Many manufacturers are planning to collect this information but the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) believes that as the driver you should have the ability to control which information is shared, who it goes to, and where it goes. Among other things, vehicles should be built with a clear menu so consumers can opt in to share the information they want to with the automaker or other service provider, such as a garage. While some of these technologies may seem futuristic, there are currently data-collecting capabilities that car vendors use every time our car is serviced. Vehicles have been collecting limited repair data for years. The big change that is coming is two-fold: way more information will be collected, and it will be capable of being transmitted wirelessly to your vehicle manufacturer. The CAA advises you to get to know what your car knows about you.

Qatar Classic Cars, a Classic Love

Classic car lovers in Doha the capital of Qatar are willing to face the bumps to go after their passion. Classic, Antique or some may call vintage cars until very recently appeared to be a territory only the rich royalties and the VIPs are allowed to enter. However, this perception has gradually changed, and now the market holds possibilities for even the enthusiasts that are willing to spare a bit over a hundred-thousand Qatari Riyals the equivalent to twenty-thousands US Dollars. This became possible due to the economic boom the area is witnessing, efficient communications with classic car dealers in Houston, along with the superior supply chain management allowed cars in Houston to be transported at low costs.

It now became possible for a knowledgeable enthusiast, with patience, and time at their disposal to buy classic car in Qatar, or an antique car in Dubai, or even a classic car to be shipped from Houston. It became possible to start the process with the equivalent of three thousand US dollars, or in other words for less than the ca was worth in the seventies or eighties.

This however sometimes holds true, and sometimes does not. For instance, Morris Minors was valued in Dubai and Qatar at about QR 15,000 in the eighties. It is very difficult to sell such a car for QR 10,000 in 2007 according to a car dealer. Cars that were easy on the pocket back in their peaking days are unlikely to hold value over the years. Hence, exceptions always pop up, for instance this fact doesn’t hold true with the iconic mini.

I respect, and always reflect my articles with both mine and the apposing; however I do not see a Qatar classic car dealer’s opinion holding true. He said “The classic car market, if it can be called that, will flourish because people have bought [these cars] for nostalgia and recreation — not for financial gain,” says a dealer in classic cars. “Most people, who have bought a classic car in the last ten years, knew their cars would have seen a rise on the value.” To contradict, According to Classic Car magazine, the US has seen a growth in the market for classic cars, particularly American sports cars of the 1960s and 1970s. Cars, such as Chevrolet Corvettes and Camaros, Ford Thunderbirds and Pontiacs, are said to have doubled in value over the past three years.

As I have been promising throughout the article series dedicated to Qatar classic car, the research journey has not stopped, rather the more research I make, the more I am interested to learn about the differences in tastes and markets. To get up-to-date research results, visit the section I dedicated to Qatar classic cars

Hybrid cars have two engines for it to effectively conserve fuel consumption. It has the traditional gasoline engine and it also has an electric motor and batteries. The two engines work together in order to cut fuel consumption. With this technology, you will be able to cut fuel usage by more than half.

Hybrid car owners virtually do not feel the increasing cost in fuel prices. This is the main advantage of the hybrid car. There are other advantages that a hybrid car can give you.

This means that by owning a hybrid car, you will be able to save money on taxes.

There are other benefits that the government imposes on hybrid car owners, such as free parking, and free entry to car pool lanes. Some even offer discounted fees on toll gates.

The braking in hybrid cars is also configured to capture the energy released and uses it to charge the batteries inside the hybrid car. This means that unlike electric cars, hybrid cars do not actually need to be charged from your home electric outlet.

However, with all the advantages that a hybrid car can give you, there are also disadvantages. The main disadvantage of hybrid cars is that the retail price is quite expensive. Only people who have enough money can purchase hybrid cars. However, the twist in all this is that hybrid cars are actually cheaper when compared to conventional cars in the long run. If you compute the total fuel consumption of both cars, you will actually see that you can save a lot more money on hybrid cars.

The only thing is that hybrid cars are expensive right from the car lot.

Hybrid cars are relatively heavy because of the heavy batteries installed inside the car. This is why hybrid car manufacturers integrates smaller internal combustion engines and are constructed with light materials and should be aerodynamic in order to maximize efficiency. This means that hybrid cars can never really go fast.

Another issue about hybrid cars is that it is very risky in accidents. What makes a hybrid car work effectively is also what makes it risky if it ever gets involved in an accident. This is because hybrid cars stores high amount of voltage in its batteries. This means that there is a high chance of getting electrocuted when you get involved in an accident. This also means that it is relatively difficult for rescuers to get the drivers and passengers out of the hybrid cars because of the dangers of high voltage in the car.

These are the advantages and the disadvantages of hybrid cars. Car manufacturers today are now looking for ways to get rid of the disadvantages of hybrid cars. In the near future, you will see that hybrid cars will be lighter and also contains less risk due to high voltage dangers.

BMW M3 History – How It All Began

The BMW M3 series is a high-performance version of the classic BMW 3-series. The first reproduction of the M3 series was based on the 1986 E30 3-series. This early reproduction of the M3 series was notable because BMW marketed it primarily as a racing vehicle. The M3 was adapted into a road car specifically because of its racing focus. BMW sought to break into the touring car racing market to compete with Mercedes-Benz.

This racing focus was what spurred BMW to make the M3 different from the standard 3-series, adopting a more aerodynamic body and a wider track for increased stability. Most of the subsequent changes to the M3 have mostly been to keep the car up-to-date with the year to year changes in the homologation rules. As a result, the M3 has won more road-races than any other model in history.

Despite its distinguished pedigree, the E36 M3 GT special edition, which was released in 1994 specifically as a race-car, has rarely been raced in competitive circuits outside of the BMW CCA club racing circuit. In 1995, the E36 series added a six cylinder engine, along with a more powerful engine and a six-speed gearbox.

The next reproduction in the M3 series came in 2000 with the release of the E46 M3. The E46 came equipped with the most powerful engine of its type, a 3.2 liter LS54B32, giving the car more than 100 horsepower. Additionally, the E46 M3 was produced without the clutch pedal. In 2001, BMW introduced the M3 GTR, which upgraded the line to an eight cylinder engine that once again brought the series into its racing prominence.

bmw-m3-race-edition.jpg

The fourth generation of M3 cars premiered in 2007, with the release of the E90 M3. The E90 kept the 8-cylinder engine of the M3GTR, but with a 4 liter engine. In 2008, the series added a double-clutch, which enabled the car to switch gears in less than a tenth of a second. The newest M3s are now available in a four-door sedan model, in addition to the traditional coupe version.

Upcoming changes to the M3 series include a lightweight version as well as LED taillights. The new-model M3s have been announced as being entered in the prestigious Le Mans race, which can possibly mark its return to prominence in the world of professional street racing.

How to Buy a Classic Car?

Buying Your First Classic Car – by John Kelly

Many people dream of owning a classic car and fantasize of nipping out for a picnic in summer in a vintage Morris Minor, or ripping down country lanes in a vintage E-type Jag. But how easy is it to buy your first classic car? Sureterm Direct has helped thousands of customers insure their first classic and here’s their guide on how to approach making your first purchase.

What to look for
Buying a classic car is fairly straightforward, but you do need to take care in deciding exactly what type of vehicle best fits your needs. It’s no good buying a classic MGB if you want to use the vehicle for family outings (with kids and dogs) to the beach. Equally, a Ford Cortina 1600E might tick all the practicality boxes if you’re a singe bloke – but does it have the same effect on your street cred as a gleaming MK2 Jaguar? Probably not. Key practical considerations therefore need to be: Number of seats, number of doors, hard-top of soft-top, boot space – and even image!

Where to store it
How you store the car is also a major factor. Unfortunately, most ‘old’ cars simply don’t stand up to the weather like new ones, so you’ll need to keep your new classic in a garage or lock-up to maintain its appearance. If, like most people, your garage is rammed with anything BUT a car you’ll either need to clear it out or factor in the cost of renting a lock-up in your budget.

If the car needs some work doing on it, you’ll need space to move around the vehicle (especially under it). And if you’re thinking of keeping it outside, covered with a tarpaulin, think again! Damp rises, putting your car at risk – and how will you fancy doing your vital maintenance work in the pouring rain or driving snow?

Condition
The condition of you chosen classic car is a major consideration. If you have a background in engineering, welding or metalwork, a rusting old heap will hold no fear for you. Classic car magazines are full of adverts for a huge array of potential classic vehicles, and this should be your prime hunting ground. The key is to be realistic about what you can take on. A full restoration project is one thing – but it might be much more sensible to take on a project that’s been part completed, and just needs a few spares to get it back on the road.

Equally, you may find a ‘bargain’ for just a few hundred quid, that may well be worth £15k when complete. But spending hours trying to find irreplaceable body parts, or having to outsource specialist elements of the rebuilding project to experts, will soon make you wonder whether it was all worthwhile.

A sensible option when buying your first classic car is to spend a little more, but go for something that is presentable even if it takes a little longer to find the car of your dreams.

Where to find Classic Cars
The internet has made it easier then ever before to track down a classic car. Previously, buyers had to scour shop windows for likely purchases or buy specialist magazines, but now simply typing ‘Daimler Sovereign’ or ‘Austin Healey ‘ into Google is likely to bring up results. You’ll find specialist dealer sites, individuals using auction sites like e-bay, even portals aggregating all the classic car websites in one location.

Magazines are still useful, as they often provide added information by way of features about restoration. While the internet is great for finding vehicles quickly, printed media usually go into much more depth about the joys and pitfalls of classic car ownership.

Preparation before plunging
Having found a few potential purchases, now you need to do some homework to make sure you don’t end up with ‘a lemon’. While you’ll have some comeback if you buy from a dealer, classic cars are unlikely to be sold with a warranty and if you’re buying from a private individual you’ll have even less rights.

This is why you need to have a series of key questions to ask on the phone, or by email, with the seller to make sure you build up an accurate history of the car.

For example: Why are you selling the car? How long have you owned it? How often is it used? Does it come with any spares? Do you have any receipts for MOT’s or work that’s been done? Where has the work been done? How easy is it to find spare parts and can you recommend any local suppliers? You might want to know if the car runs on unleaded fuel, or if it can be easily converted, as leaded petrol is expensive and has limited availability in the UK.

Viewing
If you’ve progressed to a viewing, choose a time to see it during daylight. Avoid seeing it in the rain too, even the worst classic car has a certain appeal when it’s sat in the half light with the rain bouncing off it.
And think about taking along an expert. You could enlist the paid services of an AA or RAC inspector, but using internet forums you can usually find a classic car club member close to you who’d be delighted to give you the benefit of their experience (often for the price of a pint of real ale!).
Other MUST DO’s on your viewing:
• Look underneath.
• Check for signs of sagging, which might indicate suspension or chassis problems.
• See if the tyres match.
Look for signs of bodywork repairs, especially paint retouches (black and metallic colours are very difficult to match).
• Check the body all over for rust and rot, or cracking in the example of fiberglass-bodied cars, like Lotus.
• Lift up the carpets if you can, checking the floor pan and joint to the inner sill.
• Start from cold.
• Go for a test drive – look and listen for knocks, grinding, and smoke which may indicate oil escaping and burning.
• Look out for a soft or lazy clutch and check to see whether the car has a tendency to pull to the left or right.

Hopefully, this list of simple Do’s and Don’ts will help you take the first steps to buying a classic car. Trying to cover everything would take all day, but the key things to remember are: Take time to consider what’s best; Don’t be afraid to ask for advice; Ask plenty of questions; And be thorough with your inspection.

Follow those rules and your first foray into classic car ownership should be a joy, not a disaster.

Why Classic Cars are Better Than New Ones

The start of 2008 brought great hilarity for those of us who keep a keen eye on the motoring industry – and especially those among us who sneer at anything less than a supercar. First, the joy of the internet and email meant I received a picture of a garden shed on wheels (yes, an actual shed) – with a clever fake press release heralding the launch of the new Daewood car! Very funny.

Then, in India, Tata Motors launched the world’s cheapest new car…the $2,500 Nano. Wizened industry-watchers heralded the apparent “breathtaking innovations in manufacturing technology in the global automobile industry based on severe cost-cutting”. Others were not so open-minded, with one United States media presenter describing the car as “a golf cart crossed with a jelly bean.”

But both events got me thinking – why on earth would someone buy a horrible new ‘Eurobox car’ when the money could be better spent on a fantastic classic car? This conundrum always baffles my colleagues at Sureterm Direct – the UK’s leading specialist classic car insurance company – so with their help here are my top 7 reasons to buy a classic car instead of a faceless, cheap, under-powered, Euro-shed.

1. Better insurance deals. Take it from us, as the country’s leading specialist classic car insurer, the costs of insuring a classic MGB if you opt for special features like limited mileage options can be considerably less than cover for a new hot hatch. And we’re not just talking about saving a £10 or so – the difference can run to hundreds of pounds. Classic car insurance quotes can be very competitive.

2. Zero road tax. Yep, that’s right. In the UK classic cars built before 1973 qualify for zero-rated road tax. You have to display a tax disk, but it doesn’t actually cost anything. So there’s £160 banked straight away.

3. It makes financial sense. The moment you drive your run-of-the-mill chunk of far Eastern plastic and metal car off the forecourt you lose 30% of its value straight away in depreciation. You no longer own a new car – you own a second-hand one! But if you invested in a cracking little classic car in good condition – and kept it smart – the chances are it should at least hold its value (and in some cases it might even increase in price).

4. Cheaper repair bills. Let’s say you’re in the middle of a country estate enjoying a picnic in your classic Morris Minor when you carelessly but gently bump into a great oak. You can find a new rear lamp for around 20 quid. However, do the same in your new Kia and the replacement rear light is likely to be at least two times that.

5. You’re more environmentally-friendly. People think old cars use more petrol per mile than new ones – and in some cases they’re right. But it is a well-documented fact that around a third of the energy consumed by a car in its entire life is used to make it in the first place. So buying and using a classic car is recycling par-excellence. Spare parts for older cars are readily-accessible, so keeping your classic running is again very environmentally sound – while many components used in the build of new cars are sealed in and only fit for the bin once they’re no longer of use.

6. You look good. Swing down the street in a gleaming classic MGB and you’ll turn heads. And it feels great to drive around in something that is instantly-recognisable and draws knowing waves, nods and winks from other motorists. Of course, your Far Eastern tin machine might draw hand signals too – but a single finger doesn’t constitute a wave I’m afraid.

7. Social networking. Want to meet nice new friends in great surroundings? Then join a classic car club. For example, there are events for VW Beetle owners almost every weekend. It’s fun – and it’s hard to imagine the same feeling from a field full of Daihatsu Sirion owners.

A general overview of 8 lug wheel adapters

If you look at it minutely, an 8 lug wheel adapters have several uses when it comes to cares, trucks and other vehicles.

Finally a Website That Allows You to Change Wheels on Your Own Actual Car

Finally somebody has done what I have religiously scoured the internet every couple of months for. In this day and age I would not have thought this would not be difficult to do, however till now nobody has ever done it. What am I rambling on about? A website that me, a not so technically minded person, can load a photo of my own car and then see what it looks like with other rims or wheels. Sure there‘s the big wheel and tire guys and franchisees that have developed their own, however these have always got big draw backs like, limited wheel choices, the cars are limited to what they have pre loaded and these sites never have my model car let alone my colour car and what’s more the wheel always look very cheesy. Well I ‘m glad to say my relentless searching has found a great site that solves all the above issues and adds a heap of great features. The site is called Vrimz which I guess stands for virtual rims and found it on a simple Google search.

So what’s so good about this site? Well as mentioned above its core advantage is it allows me to load a side-on photo of my actual car then using a simple online Photoshop type program I can erase the background from around my car along with my current wheels then load that edited image straight into their “RimXchange” tool which then allows you to position your car on a new background (which you can change) then choose from heaps of preloaded wheels. The tool allows you lower/raise your vehicle and of course change the wheel size along with a choice of backgrounds all within an easy to use interface that produces photo realistic images. You can also take a snapshot of your current car/wheel combination and allow other users to comment/rate etc

What I found particularly interesting, was wheels I would have never chosen from a catalog or picture of a single rim, actually looked really good on my car, and similarly wheels I thought would be good turned out to look a bit ordinary. This was a bit of a shock as I thought I knew exactly what I wanted and in my mind would look hot, but it turned out to be quite the opposite. There really is no substitute to actually visualizing it on your own car.

The site seems to only have just launched, so they don’t have a huge wheel database yet however you can load your own wheels as well. How cool is that? I know this guy down the street that has a really nice set of wheels that I would like to see on my car. So I just trundled down with my camera phone and snapped a picture of his front wheel and rushed home to upload it. The site gives you a simple tool to select the centre of the uploaded wheel photo and drag a circle out to the edge of the tire which then it automatically removes all the unused background then you simply add the details ie. Brand/model and colour of wheel if known and add it to the database. Within 5 mouse clicks I was viewing a brand new wheel on my car.

The site is not however just a wheel change website, in the current day and age where social communities (think facebook) are all the rage, this site also caters for that aspect except it’s geared for car enthusiasts with all the normal trimmings ie. Keeping update to date with friends via comments, emails, forums and personal status updates, along with For Sale sections, image galleries and my favorite the events section where you can invite your friends to a certain event, like a cruise through the local neighborhood on Saturday night. Your friends are kept abreast of meeting times and locations and you can see at a glance who’s coming and who’s not etc.

The site also includes a directory of automotive businesses that are in your local area based on the location you choose when you registered. Users can rate and comment on these business so you can quickly see which are the most respected and qualified mechanics, windows tinters etc.

The owners of this site have thought of everything, there is also a handy blurring tool to blur out your number plate on your gallery photos to keep your identity private but still show off your ride.

All in all this site, whilst still in early days will become very popular amongst car enthusiasts and the like, I can see myself spending way to much time on this site, much to the dismay of my wife. Oh and by the way it’s all free!

Kinds of Solar Technology Solutions for Professional or Exclusive Use

The standard operates and great things about putting in a solar powered energy program into either your property or professional home are simple – it helps save cash plus it assists the planet. In case your residence has a reasonable volume of rooftop surface area with regular contact with sun light you then are fit to setup solar panel enthusiasts, but there’s a little more into it than that.

For now, you should understand that there are many of different solar power systems utilized, each because of their very own advantages and functions that are great for numerous surroundings and life styles. The 4 main solar energy methods being used include grid attached, standalone grid attached, off grid, and stand-alone off of grid.

Grid Connected Solar Power

Grid linked solar energy is significantly less dependent on sun exposure than other way of solar technology. No matter the concentration of direct sunlight or whether it is night or day, your solar power system is connected to your overall electrical power provide, this means you have access to electrical energy all of the time.

There is no desire for battery pack storing with this sort of process, and no requirement to worry about climatic conditions – when the direct sun light collections, your power merely automatically switches to your past output provide.

Stand Alone Grid Connected Solar Energy ( View this site )

These stand-alone grid attached methods are just your normal grid connected solar powered energy techniques using the added purpose of keeping electricity.

Also called far off power methods, off grid solar energy is common in residence (business or home) which is more remote as opposed to others.

This system is set up totally different for the mains electrical power grid, significance in other words, the electricity productivity is completely reliant on sunlight gentle visibility and sunlight high intensity. The vitality is utilized quickly and automatically, and is absent during intervals with out sunlight.

Stand-alone Off of Grid Solar Powered Energy

The problem of off of grid solar power process is the fact that energy provide is missing at night or in overcast weather conditions. Because of this, largest part of off of grid systems are installed together with the utility to keep the electrical power created by solar panel systems, just like a battery does. If vitality is essential for much longer, a lot more reputable periods, then this can be a ideal option.

This breaking down may be the fundamentals associated with figuring out which solar power program is most effective for your house or company, and which program will give you enough power to your a variety of electricity employs (for example solar powered hydronics or solar power water moving). Considering the advantages and disadvantages of every solar technology system, exhibiting on the power use and contemplating your spots are the first steps in making the vitality switch.

Advantages And Importance Of Alloy Wheels

Alloy Wheels are definitely “in” these days. Those bling-bling wheels you see on most vehicles today are all alloy wheels and they are gaining more fans and popularity everyday.

So what exactly are alloy wheels and how are they different from normal wheels?

Are alloy wheels better than normal wheels?

These are the types of questions I intend to answer in this article.

Alloy Wheels perform the same function in automobiles as the normal steel ones but there are certain added features in alloy wheels that make them different and arguably better.

Compared to wheels made of steel, alloy wheels are composed of aluminum or magnesium alloys making them stronger and durable, lighter in weight, better in performance and most importantly, stylish. These wheels are manufactured either by the process of casting or by forging of metal alloys.

Forged alloy wheels are lighter and much more durable than cast alloy wheels but they are a little hard on the pocket. Forged alloy wheels are usually the preferred choice for high-performance sports cars but that does not mean you can’t fit them on any other car. Comparatively, cast aluminum alloys are heavier but they are cheaper and yet have almost the same styling as that of forged alloys.

There is however another type of stylish alloy wheels called Mag-Wheels. Magnesium alloy wheels or mag-wheels are whole magnesium cast or forged wheels used in racing cars as they are the lightest alloy wheels available. Mag-wheels are high on performance as well as on styling.

Unmatched style is probably the main reason why most people now prefer alloy wheels for their vehicle. There is no doubt that alloy wheels make the vehicle look posh and increase its cosmetic appeal but there are two other definite advantages of fitting your car with alloy wheels instead of the normal steel wheels:

  • Alloy wheels are lighter, that means your vehicle has less unsprung mass. This means your vehicle handles better and there is improved road grip on most terrains. A lighter vehicle will obviously perform better on the mileage count as well.
  • Alloy wheels are also good in terms of balancing. Your vehicle balances well reducing stress on other parts of your car like the suspension and the axles.

Besides that, did we discuss the style that alloy wheels add to your vehicle?

You no longer require those fuzzy hub-caps and you can definitely avoid displaying those ugly looking steel rims. No matter how elegant your car looks, if the wheels are not up to the mark, it may be a case of “bride without the ornaments”. And indeed, wheels are ornaments, the ones to be proudly displayed. Alloy wheels maintain their luster for years (if maintained properly) and shine with that metal-chrome finish, enough to make your neighbors burn with envy.

A fact worth considering is that used alloy wheels and rims are available in the market at one-third the price of brand new ones. You get the style and features of alloy wheels without spending much.

With all this information at hand, I am sure you are equipped to search for the best alloy wheels for your car and tread the roads in style.

Hybrid Car Batteries Lifespan – Are They Worth The Money?

The batteries in hybrid cars are responsible for the improved fuel economy that has become central to the technology.They get a hybrid car moving from stopped to a low speed – generally around thirty-five mph, at which point the gas engine cuts in.  This puts less stress on the gasoline engine and extends the amount of fuel a car burns between trips to the gas station.

The harmful chemicals that give the hybrid batteries their energy, however, are becoming a concern for the environmentally conscious.  But because of the comparatively low number of hybrids on the road, the ‘poison’ alarm has not been offically sounded.  Nevertheless the concern is that at some point the trash dumps will fill up with carcinogenic materials.

There are two types of batteries currently being used in hybrid cars:  Lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride, otherwise referred to as NiMH.  Lithium-ion (Li-ion) is the third kind, but by the time these are in each and every hybrid, lead-acid batteries are going to be history. Certainly, lead-acid is the most poisonous of the three, and on top of that it is also exceptionally heavy, reducing some of the energy efficiency gains from the electric motor.

Lead-acid is becoming less of a contender in the hybrid vehicle battery market and is being replaced by nickel-metal hydride. NiMH batteries may be less harmful than lead, however they do have environmental disadvantages:  They are at least potentially carcinogenic and the method through which the nickel is mined is hazardous. Lithium-ion batteries in contrast, are by far the least contaminated of the three and are considered by many experts to be the future of hybrid vehicle batteries. In fact, car companies are committing millions of dollars in research for a functioning hybrid car battery that utilizes the identical sort of power currently found in laptop computers and MP3 players.

Just how long do hybrid car batteries last? And the answer is over 300,000 miles!  Honda and Toyota guarantee their batteries for 100K or less, but they have rarely had to sell replacements.  As far as cost, you would shell out between 3 and 4 thousand dollars to get a full battery pack change.

There are Many Car Accessories for Girls only, but there is only One Champion

When it comes to finding unique car accessories for girls, much it depends on what you mean when you say “single”. Unique accessories could be that very few people have, or might well be accessories that are designed specifically for the female market. After all, there are certain accessories that no man would want.

To a large extent, men and women like the same kind of car accessories. It is how these accessories are dresses that will ultimately be the deciding factor. For example, if a guy likes dashboard mats could choose a display name of your favourite football team or the baseball team. Women on the other hand would probably want something a little more feminine.

If you are looking for accessories that offer a degree of practicality, or if you are looking for stickers or emblems, there is a particular design that has reigned supreme for a number of years already.

Depending on how good your memory, remember that a certain cat was born in 1974. He never had a name at the time, but in late 1975 virtually everyone had come to know her, and was later given a name – Hello Kitty.

From dishes designer clothing bags, Hello Kitty has been a global sensation and not just among young girls. Women of all ages have fallen in love with this feminine symbol of tenderness.

How much difference can a little “tender” is truly amazing. In the past, very few women were even interested in accessories like wheel covers. These days, a steering wheel Covers white leather with pictures of Hello Kitty is an essential element. And do not forget dashboard mats Hello Kitty; Hello Kitty cup holder; Hello Kitty handbrake grip and etc.

In short, if you are searching only car accessories for girls, take much to beat Hello Kitty. That said, there is actually a very serious contender, and interestingly, is a boy this time. Still, most men do not want their cars to spend it as well as Hello Kitty, is most women who have fallen in love with him.

The Unknown Facts About Electric Cars

Believe it or not, electric cars have been around for a very long time. In the early 1900s, there were more electric cars than there were gasoline powered cars. Back in the early 1920s when vehicles were becoming more popular, gasoline was very expensive. It also was hard to start a gasoline engine, you had to turn and turn and turn a crank in front of the car to get it to start. There was no key to start the car like we have today.

Gasoline vehicles were also noisy and put out lots of smoke. The cars either had no mufflers, or the mufflers did not do a good job. So, electric vehicles were a big hit. At one time there were 50,000 of them on the roads and streets of the United States.

But electric cars soon faded away like the horse drawn carriage. New ways to make gasoline cheaply were being discovered. A new invention called an electric starter was made. It started an electric car with a key instead of a crank. A gasoline car could go much farther than an electric one. So, gasoline powered vehicles soon became the main method of transporting people.

Now that there is a push for cleaner green cars, electricity is once again being looked to as a way to help reduce greenhouse gases released into the air by gasoline and electric cars could be one of the answers to this problem.

Electric cars do not burn gasoline in an engine. They use electricity stored on the car in batteries. Sometimes, 12 or 24 batteries, or more, are needed to power the car. Just like a remote controlled, model electric car, electric cars have an electric motor that turns the wheels and a battery to run that motor.

To charge an electric cars batteries, the car is usually plugged in at night. Some electric cars can plug right into a regular electrical wall outlet. Others need a larger outlet, like the kind that a stove or electric clothes dryer plug into. Electricity, is then stored in the batteries of the car.

The batteries can be lead acid batteries, like the batteries you find in our flashlight or in regular gasoline cars. Or they can be ni cad nickel cadmium like the kind that run portable video recorders or a portable video game player only much larger. Better batteries that hold more energy and last longer are being developed. In 2001, by the time todays fifth graders are ready to drive, electric cars should be able to travel 150 to 200 miles before recharging.
Car manufacturers and scientists are constantly coming up with new ways to fuel our vehicles in a cleaner, more environmentally friendly way. The production of the electric car is an exciting one that is being embraced by more and more people every year.

5 ways your car is becoming a smartphone on wheels

Cars are no longer just a solution to take us from point A to point B. In today’s world, where we are more connected to our homes, families, work, devices and friends, our vehicles are also keeping up with these advancing technologies. The modern car can help connect and direct us to, literally, steer down the right path.

There are an array of features that are becoming mainstream and could transform the way you drive. Here is what might be in your future:

1. Safety: Proximity sensors to warn you of hazards ahead on the road, automatic-braking, and park assist are just a few of the technological advancements being included in new vehicles.

2. Vehicle information: Digital messages can let you know about looming issues like worn brake pads, a brake light that is about to burn out, or other problems well beyond what most current vehicles can sense.

3. Location information: Based on your specific location, your car will be able to provide suggestions for local restaurants, attractions and hotels in the area.

4. Communication: You will be able to connect to other devices, including other cars, phones, computers, home appliances and thermostats.

5. Data tracking: Information about vehicle speed, usage and driving tendencies will be collected by your vehicle. Among the uses for this information are usage-based insurance policies which set premiums based on driving behaviour.

While our cars might be able to do more for us, what will it mean for our privacy? Vehicles are increasingly capable of transmitting information wirelessly, leading to questions about our privacy and security.

Many manufacturers are planning to collect this information but the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) believes that as the driver you should have the ability to control which information is shared, who it goes to, and where it goes. Among other things, vehicles should be built with a clear menu so consumers can opt in to share the information they want to with the automaker or other service provider, such as a garage.

While some of these technologies may seem futuristic, there are currently data-collecting capabilities that car vendors use every time our car is serviced. Vehicles have been collecting limited repair data for years. The big change that is coming is two-fold: way more information will be collected, and it will be capable of being transmitted wirelessly to your vehicle manufacturer.

The CAA advises you to get to know what your car knows about you.

Past And Future Of Hybrid Cars

Since the car was invented centuries ago, people and car makers around the world have aimed to roll out and introduce the best car models, for the convenience of the end users and for their company revenue growth.

The technology for making and manufacturing cars have really evolved through the years, that generation after generation, there is almost always a striking modification of the old ways.

Car makers in Japan, the United States, Germany and elsewhere have always strived to outpace each other in the race to offering the best car model and product to the market.

Thus, almost all the issues, concerns and shortcomings of the old and traditional car models are addressed in the making and assembly of the modern successors.

Cars of today are exteriorly, more superior than those of yesteryears. Take the exterior design, for example. A car in the 1920 era would be totally ashamed if put beside the latest Camry model of Toyota or Honda’s Civic.

The electric cars

Probably, the first major attempt to improve cars is the emergence or invention of the electric cars. People had been excited on the news that years ago, the electric cars were considered the cars of the future.

Unfortunately, electric cars did not live or failed to live to the expectations set against it. True enough, electric cars definitely eliminate the pollution caused by combustion of oil and gasoline inside engines and motors.

But there are more setbacks to the electric cars than there are pull ups or advantages. One of those setbacks is the inconvenience in electric recharging.

Because electricity are stored in batteries before the electric cars get to make use of it, batteries almost always run out of power rather quickly.

The thing is, recharging the electric charges of such batteries take some time and a little longer that people will almost always run out of patience waiting. Thus, the idea of cars giving convenience to its users is breached.

Another setback, is the limited mileage capacity of the electric cars. On the average, it is estimated that electric cars run only about 50 to 100 miles before the electric supply runs out, compared to 200 to 350 miles, on the average, that gasoline powered cars run out of gasoline.

It is this one setback that made the manufacturing of electric cars out of hand, or totally not feasible. No consumer would ever want to buy cars like that, right?

The hybrid cars

But car makers are so determined to win the race. They have patiently and resourcefully challenged the test of time and rising demand for car evolution.

Thus, a few years ago, the hybrid cars were unveiled in the global car market. The reception was so overwhelming that almost all the important car makers around the world are coming out with their own hybrid car versions.

And just like how electric cars were so promising during their launch, hybrid cars are also spurring and arousing amazement from the expecting public.

The introduction of hybrid cars also gave long-awaited hope to car owners and drivers who are so concerned about the environment and the constantly rising oil and gasoline prices.

The current global oil crisis is unleashing all devils in all the world economies, and thus, the unveiling of hybrid cars provided promises and hope to alleviate from the ever-increasing demand for oil products.

Thus, the first buyers of the modern hybrid cars have that in mind. They want to significantly cut oil consumption and help save the environment by means of lower greenhouse gas emissions.

It is time you check on your car dealer to know more perks of the hybrid cars. There are more and more hybrid car models in the market. One more setback, the prices are really, really high, so lean back before getting totally overwhelmed, by amazement and frustration.

Future Of Electric Cars In India

Carmaker Renault also showcased its Renault Twizy two-seater concept electric car at the Delhi Auto Expo. However nothing is clear about Renault’s India plans regarding Twizy.

Major road blocks ahead

The biggest challenge for any electric car company in the country is the lack of infrastructure to support their products. So much so that country’s biggest carmaker Tata Motors is not too keen on bringing Indica and Nano’s electric versions to the country! Prakash Telang, MD, India Operations, was quoted saying, “Infrastructure is a problem and so is the manner in which electricity is produced in India. It’s more about the source of electricity and unless we are assured that we aren’t removing pollution from the roads, only to add those emitted by electric plants, we can’t move into the local market.”

This is not all, high pricing, servicing problems and travel possible only in a limited range are some other key factors that have been hampering the growth of electric cars. However, once these limitations are addressed the future might just belong to these eco-friendly beauties across the world.

It seems to be an advantageous point for poor or bad credit scorers as a rise in interest rate can make used car loan unaffordable to them. However, normal credit scorers don’t feel like affected with the slight variance in interest rate of car loan. Every auto loan seeker should therefore be vigilant while shopping around for car loans and make sure that they choose for the one that fits best into their requirement.

As compared to used car loan, the new car loan is large and expensive but its interest rate is much less. The borrowers are more likely to get facilities such as no money down financing or cash discounts with new auto loans as a promotional trick from automotive dealers who want to sell their cars fast. When you apply for car loan, it will definitely add to the price of the chosen car as you will have to pay for the monthly installment until the entire amount is paid off. But they would certainly help people to own car who don’t afford cash for purchasing either a used or new car.

Though used car loan is less expensive and small in amount but still some risk is being associated with it. Due to nonpayment of the earlier car loans, the lenders don’t want to approve it without charging a high interest rate. Again, their interest goes on increasing in two, four and six years of time or any possible increment method. The lending institution is rather concerned about the value of the car which may well go down the loan amount before it is paid off fully. Since they don’t want a borrower to default the amount causing problem in recovery for them, they prefer to make it a safe recovery by charging high rate of interest.

In used car loan, borrowers will either have to agree for a high interest rate or pay for more down payment. They don’t also get financing for cars more than 10 years old as most of the lenders reserve their preference in this matter. They think it very risky to sanction used car loan for vehicles above 10 years old. When the borrowers bargain hard to get their car price reduced by a substantial amount from the MSRP or Blue Book then they might face problem at lender’s side no matter whether they are applying for new car loan or used car loan.

Finally, purchasing used cars not only cost less than new cars but also can give you good return. In case the new cars are not maintained properly their value depreciates fast but used cars in perfect condition and having warranty coverage are an exception. If they are offered under manufacture supported programs then borrowers get the dual benefit of manufacturer’s assurance and along with the warranty coverage. It will work in the interest of borrowers if they go through the terms and conditions of car loan and calculate its duration and compare it against the value of the chosen car to decide its affordability.

Will Ford Produce A Fully Electric Car Instead of Hybrid Cars In The Near Future?

While the Ford Motor Company is one of the largest car manufacturers in the world, they have long been reluctant to get into the electric car market. However, they did manufacture, market, and sell an electric car in an attempt to meet the consumer demands for a cleaner car that will produce less pollution and emit no greenhouse gases. Ford responded with their own version of the electric car.

The Think City electric car was produced by Ford several years ago, and many people took advantage of this pollution free, energy efficient vehicle. However, the United States has very strict standards when it comes to the safety of the vehicles on Americas roads. Unfortunately, the Think City electric car did not meet those rigorous standards so Ford ceased production and actually crushed the cars when they were returned at the end of customers leases. There are still some Think City cars out there, but they are no longer being marketed by Ford.

Ford has, however, started exploring and implementing the production of hybrid electric cars that run mostly on battery power and have the ability to switch over to gasoline power. In fact, there are many of these electric vehicles on the road today. Ford is a leader in the industry and they did not want to limit their production of electric vehicles to just cars. You can now find electric Ford trucks, SUVs, and mini vans.

Electric cars made by Ford are now mostly of the hybrid version, but there also are Ford brand electric cars that you can find overseas. Because other countries do not have as stringent safety standards, people in countries like England and France have taken the advantages of the electric car and are driving them en masse.

Some people are disappointed that Ford has made the move from a totally electric car to a hybrid vehicle, but without being able to meet safety standards, the companys hands essentially were tied. It was not cost efficient for them to take the electric cars already on the road and meet the set standards, so they had to do what they could to meet the demands of their customers for a more environmentally friendly vehicle.

Being an industry leader in the car field, Ford is doing what they can to meet the requests of their customers for an electric car. Perhaps in the future, a fully electric car with the Ford name on it is possible. But for now, Ford enthusiasts will have to settle for hybrid versions.
