Joe Dawson opened an auto parts and tire store attached to his service garage to cater to “tinkerers” who preferred to work on their own automotives. Today it competes with national brand competitors locally by affiliating itself to the National Automotive Parts Association (NAPA) to offer warranties and replacement. Dawson’s markets its history as a family owned company to gain the trust of consumers and sells both new parts and the installation and warranty services that accompany them. They also sell tires and wheels and accessories like sound systems. Their direct competitors consist of other auto parts stores that sell direct to consumers, big chain retailers that offer basic parts at discount prices and salvage yards that sell used parts direct to consumers.
The next thing that plays a part is the real income that car buyers have. Over the years the economy has gone down and there for the income has dropped and people aren’t spending as much on cars heck some people don’t even spend any money on cars any more. Which really can have a great impact on the demand of cars. Because if there isn’t many people wanting cars means that the need to make a ton of them isn’t as good and can really fall back on to the workers that could lose their jobs. Next, over the years people are starting to want to become greener which means them taking out factors in there that harm the environment.
(The automobile industry, 1920-1980) This was very big not only for the new invention of the first production car but it also offered many new jobs for factory workers needed to produce the mass number of cars that were in high demand. After Henry Ford realized he needed to make these cars faster and more efficiently due to increasing demand, he made the first assembly line for workers, this allowed production to move much faster and more efficiently. With an assembly line each worker does one simple job on every product that comes down the line, over and over. By the time the product is at the end of the assembly line and everyone has done his or her part, the car is completely assembled! As with most things, as soon as others saw the success that Henry Ford was experiencing, they set out to copy him and make their own versions of his original product.
Reasons for the economic boom in the 1920s America experienced an economic boom after World War 1 ended because of many different factors. There was a rapid increase in industry and this caused many more people, including women to become employed and to earn their own money. Many new industries were created in the 1920s; one of the rapidly increasing industries was the car industry. Henry Ford revolutionised the production of cars by creating mass production. This meant that people had one specific job on the production line that they repeated over and over so they became very good at this one job, this meant that the T-ford model could be produced every 10 seconds.
There are many things that cause global warming but one of the primary causes is cars and trucks on the road every day and all day and never ceases. It has been over a century gasoline powered cars have made it easy for us to get around but it's time for a change with the growing need of supply and demand, we need to start finding other resources to power our vehicles, therefore, is natural gas powered cars better than hybrid cars? By driving more efficient vehicles, oil imports can be cut, money can be saved, jobs can be created, and it will help with global warming. With gas prices on the rise up, wouldn't you want to save money just by using more efficient cars, such as, the hybrid or the electric automobiles? Hybrid electric vehicles combined with more than one power source offer additional flexibility to improve the fuel economy and to reduce pollutant emissions.
Some may say that hybrids are beneficial to the economy but they leave out the high costs, safety issues, and difficulties that come with buying a hybrid vehicle. The high cost of owning a hybrid vehicle is outrageous, you have to buy a very expensive battery, car charger, and you can’t forget maintenance on the vehicle, when it comes time to repair it. The price of owning a hybrid car is shocking, it can range anywhere from $30,000 to $45,000, and can even cost over $110.000 for some of the most advanced models (All Data Base). If you think this price is fair for this type of vehicle, wait until you have to replace the batteries, because once the car battery ages it will hold less charge, meaning the battery will die faster, and eventually you will have to replace the battery packs, or you may have to buy a new car. These batteries cost anywhere from $3,000 to $8,000 (Auto.Serv.pg.
