 Critical to the recovery was the appointment in 1922 of a new finance director, Ernest Payton with the backing of the Midland Bank, and a new works director in charge of car production, Carl Engelbach, at the insistence of the creditors' committee. This triumvirate of Austin, Payton and Engelbach steered the company's fortunes through the inter-war years.

One of the reasons for a market demand for a cars like the Austin 7 was the British tax code.

I chose the topic the birth of the automobile culture because researching something that is so important to society, intrigued me. The first production car ever made was the Model T by Henry Ford. It was a very simple two-seater mostly made of wood with very simple mechanics. The model T was intended with the average middle class American in mind. (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.
Gases are non-renewable source of energy and therefore after several decades of the evolution of cars, the world is suffering from depletion. During some time in the early years of the twentieth century, hybrid cars were introduced by Baker of Cleveland and Woods of Chicago. (http://www.hybridcars.com/history/history-of-hybrid-vehicles.html) However, this great invention was soon challenged by the gasoline-powered cars in the sense of noise, weight and vibration. Full hybrid cars are vehicles which were made such as it can run on just engines, or on the batteries, or even better on a combination of both. This is because each hybrid cars contains two motors which also are its strengths and weaknesses.
