Utah Automobile Expo: Headlights And Taillights Never Seemed So Great
You just can ‘t keep a secret. Toyota’s has had its new plug-in electric under serious wraps, not even admitting it officially that it actually has a new plug-in electric to show off at the Detroit Auto Show. But, here it is.
Whenever going over overseas you should have a passport. If you are not French then get yourself a passport and make sure you check the expiration date on it, passports expire like coupons do. U.S. Citizens staying under 90 days don’t require a visa. When staying longer than 90 days you’ll need to submit an application for a long-term visa, residence card, or a temporary-visa for your vacation. A proof of income or means of salary while in Paris and a very good reason why you are seeking long-term stay is required. The U.S. State Department can give you info and guide you through the procedure when applying for your passport.
If you look closely at the integration of the fuel cell in the Honda Clarity, you’ll notice that it’s actually an electric car. The hydrogen-powered fuel-cell generates electricity, which powers the electric motor that drives the vehicle. That’s the beauty of electric – it is efficient and versatile. So is the electric car a passing fad? Not hardly. I predict that because electricity can be utilized so efficiently and can be easily obtained from renewable sources, the electric car industry will drive all other alternative fuels (so-to-speak). The electric motor could end up being the platform on which all other alternative fuels depend. Even now, you can hook up a bio-diesel powered generator to your electric car to extend it’s range.
Anyway, the videos below show off the real car stars of the film plus a bit of PR from GM at the recent Chicago website blogcarshow.com. GM is banking on a bounce in demand for the Camaro SS with the release of then new movie.
Polish & Wax. You car will be an eye-catcher if it’s clean as well as gleaming. Those scuffs from the paint can be removed by a simple hand polish. To top it all off, employ a glaze finished with a high-shine wax so you’ll dazzle anyone whose standing within a 10-mile radius.
Long story short the car always broke down. It sure looked good in car shows, but getting there was another story. So, one day I made the decision to sell it. I just couldn’t handle going out to dinner with it and having to take a taxi home especially the day after spending $500 to get it fixed. On eBay it went, together with all the trophies and ribbons from the cars show it was in.
And there is also another new vehicle which you may want to take a glimpse of. It is from General Motors and it looks like quite to be a product that some people in the auto industry have been waiting for. It has got an upscale kind of design which is quite a far cry from the previous design that it held. The vehicle is known as the Chevrolet Malibu and take a good look at it and you would be drooling for the interior that it comes with.
Details are sketchy, but this extended-range electric uses lithium-ion batteries and is already on sale in China in limited numbers. No idea on when this car could come to the States, but it would need to undergo some changes to pass the government’s muster.
Recently, a woman and her passenger were driving through a parking lot in a PT Cruiser-barely inching behind a gentleman in an SUV, who happened to be traveling about 5 mph. Mrs. Cruiser was hollering at Mr. SUV, screaming for him to either move forward, park, or get out of her way. Mrs. Cruiser had both her windows down, arms flailing to and fro-her voice screeching at the top of her lungs.
Big American cars show up more at cruise nights and car shows these days as opposed to driveways and highways. Their numbers have thinned considerably since their heyday, much like the buffalo. Rust, accidents, attrition, old age and demolition derbies have taken their toll on these huge cars. While their numbers are down, they can still spark plenty of good memories. Everybody seems to have a big car story or a big car memory and these cars can hold plenty of them.
