Most Corvettes in previous years have been attractive to older crowds but this one is opening up a whole new market. The exterior color of the car will offer not only the traditional colors, but will offer much more exotic and vibrant colors as our society today is becoming much more exotic and vibrant, but if your more of a traditional person than you can still have a traditional color. Our color combinations will be the only of its kind which is a reason the Corvette is separate from all other competitors.
Throw another 2k on replacing all the shocks, front end parts (ball joints, cv axles,), new brake rotors and wheel bearings all around, and the car will be riding like it came off the show room floor... From this point on, a good tune up and regular oil changes can have the Corolla riding trouble free for a good 4 or maybe five years without any major work needing to be done. Sure that is spending 4 grand to be driving an old car, but if it's what I love, i don't see anything wrong with it. The other side of the coin is to put down $4k on a 2012 corolla and which will probably Go for about $16k...Then make payments for 5-6 years on it and by the time I make my last payment probably spent about $22k. Buy the time the payment is done, the same money that would have been dropped into the 97' Corolla will have to be spent on the 2012 Corolla anyway, unless I trade it in an get myself into another car payment. With half of what i would spend on a new car, I could probable replace every bolt on a 90's car LOL!
Jennifer Nichols Popular Culture 4/21/2011 Henry Ford and the automobile I chose to review the chapter, "Henry Ford: Symbol of an age." During this review I will be summarizing the main ideas of the chapter, relating back to what we learned in class, and giving you my own opinion. One of the main ideas of the chapter is showing how big Ford really was in the 1920's. The chapter starts out saying that there were few names better known during that time. In fact, college students ranked Ford the third greatest figure of all time, behind Napolean and Jesus Christ.
Innovation within the automotive industry has brought major technological advances, leading to safer, cleaner and more affordable vehicles. If you’ve recently purchased a motorcar, the chances are it’s equipped with computerized technology designed to let you know when something is broken, a service is due, an unfastened seatbelt or even when a door isn’t shut properly. These are just a few of what we can see. Under the hood of a vehicle are spark plugs, brakes, air bags and many more. In the current time what makes a motor car depends on speed, versatility and productivity.
It was the first time for me to drive a car, and I was really good. I went through my neighborhood and reached our small shopping center. I called my friends and told them I had a car now. They came very soon and after we hang around in the shopping center, we discussed what we could do more with this car. Some of them said that, this was pretty much dangerous; they advised me leave the car at garage before it was too late.
There are other ways of implementing a hypovigilance system such as sensors on the wind shield that measures your pupil dilation. • Night vision display. Sensors are on the front and rear of the car and on the time of night drivers have much more visibility. The night vision display is located on the board
New forms of entertainment such as cinema caused many Americans who had money to go and see films or go and watch a baseball match ment they had confidence to travel in there cars to watch it. This also ment that sneaky advertising could come into play because if in the film there where cars, fridges or radios some Americans would see them then go and by one. Car ownership was also growing. In 1929 over 4.5 million cars where created by companies such as Ford and Chrysler ment that over 26 million cars on the road in America. This ment people went to places more and this caused people to become more open to see the countryside more.
There are many ways to modify the current cars in production to a more safe and inexpensive manner. For example, we can add steel front/rear bumpers like they had in the 50’s. Those bumpers were proven safer than the ones on most cars today. We can also lower the price of gasoline to a regular and average price, so the middle and lower class can afford it. I also think the technology exists to boost up the miles per gallon (mpg) a car can have.
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. This is the time period when other car company’s start to come out such as GMC, Chevy. The more time that passes the more different, new car company’s come into the picture that are still around today, credit is due to Henry Ford for starting all this. (Sears) The original model has evolved so much. It has changed shape, size, sound, performance,
Buying a new car can always be a hard thing. I know for me I have only bought one car so far in my life but it was a bit difficult. I got lucky and was able to go with my sister’s boyfriend who is a car sales men to help me find one and make sure that I got the most for my money. Therefore along the process of finding one he made sure that I understood the car industry. So that I don’t think in the mind set of I shouldn’t be spending this much and how some car companies don’t look how much a car will cost you in the long run of having it.
