The Legacy Of John Delorean

John Delorean is probably most remembered as the creator of the time traveling car in the ‘Back to the Future' movies. Many will also recall that his gull winged car failed miserably on the open market and as a result he turned to illegal and shady dealings to try and save his company.

Lost in the glitter and drama of such a legacy, his important contribution to the world of sports cars is often overlooked. Without Delorean's influence, sports car design and production would most likely have taken a different course.

In 1964, Delorean practically single handedly started the muscle car movement when he put a massive V8 engine into a Pontiac Tempest and produced the GTO.

The GTO became the most loved of the muscle cars and was a big seller for Pontiac.

Because of his great success with the GTO, he was rewarded with rapid advancement through the ranks of automobile executives. Eventually however, he decided to leave it all behind and break out on his own.

He took his ideas to Northern Ireland where he set up shop and hoped he could compete with the big three auto makers in Detroit. The Delorean Motor Company was the result and it produced the infamous DMC-12. This was his famous gull wing door car. It's doors flipped up stead of opening out, the car was futuristic in appearance with its brushed stainless steel body.

The car never achieved the success that Delorean had dreamed of. In fact, only 9000 ever made it onto the road. However, its memory will always live on thanks to the ‘Back to the Future' films launch x431 pro plus. Although not a success in and of itself, it inspired many new designs and refinements later adopted by other car manufacturers.

Delorean was an outstanding business success not only in the automotive world, but also with hotel investing and NFL franchising. Delorean's fall from grace was aired publicly and shocking to many. He was accused of financial misconduct and cocaine trafficking Autel MaxiDiag MD808. His empire was soon decimated and he filed for bankruptcy.

It wasn't the end of Delorean however. In 1999 Autel Diaglink, he announced he would be producing a new affordable sports car made of plastic. Even with all his faults, he still drew much interests based on his previous important contributions to the sports car industry. Unfortunately Delorean passed on in 2004 before work was completed on his new vision.

The Honda Civic

The Honda Civic has been one of the more popular models from Honda over the past couple of decades, so much that you still see the original version on the roadway. Because some of the original models of the Honda Civic are still being driven today it is a testament to the car's longevity and safety. Honda Civics were rated as one of the most difficult vehicles to break in to. They are also among the top rated vehicles in crash test safety.

The Civic has had quite a few different body design changes over the past handful of years and 2008 was another one launch x431 pro mini. Honda went from a longer, boxed-out look to a more compact, rounded look in 2008. Honda also debuted some new, sleeker looking colors in 2008 as well. The 2008 version of the Honda Civic became a wildly popular one as soon as it was released in 2007. The cars populate the roadway so frequently that they are very noticeable when driving. The 2008 Honda Civic is one of the more popular Honda models and a new body design was released for 2009.

The 2009 version will have a totally new look to the exterior and interior. The newest version has a very futuristic feel and should be as popular as the 2008 model autel maxisys ms906. Every piece of the interior is rounded off; the seats, the dashboard and the center console. That seems to be the latest trend for vehicles being manufactured in the late 2000's. The 2009 Honda Civic doesn't bring a whole lot of changes from the 2008 version of the vehicle. The only highly noticeable change from 2008 to 2009 is of course the interior design and the blatant redesign of the exterior.

The Honda Civic is offered in a 4-door sedan or a 2-door coupe. Honda also offers the Civic in a gas/electric Hybrid sedan model. Both the 2008 and 2009 models offer a 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual transmission. The Honda Civic offers safety features that make it one of the safest cars on the market today. Traction control, ABS as well as driver, passenger and side airbags are only some of the features.

The Honda Civic, whichever model, has a smooth, quiet ride and gets impressive gas mileage. The Civic gets an average of 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Some models come with a sunroof and some come XM ready. All the customer needs to do is have the antenna installed, purchase an account with XM and then activating the account.

The Civic, along with all other Honda models, are extremely easy to care for. The dashboard will show an orange wrench when it comes time for the car to be serviced. The wrench means that the car needs an oil change and the A1 image means that the car needs a tire rotation. Their service departments are second to none. Their service bays have enough garages to service over 35 cars at once in an effective manner. The Honda Civic is easily affordable from anywhere between $15,600-$24,600.

The Face Of Short Range Personal Transportation Is Changing

You may have noticed recently some odd looking two, three and even 4 wheeled vehicles buzzing around your neighborhood, the mall or the city sidewalks and streets. Portable scooters, pocket bikes and mobility scooters have for many replaced those short car trips these days. With the price of gas well over 3 dollars a gallon in most parts of the country, its making more and more economic sense to utilize these types of personal transportation vehicles.

Remember when you were a kid and you had a two wheel push scooter? Maybe you never had one as a child, but in fact they have been around for a long time. They became popular for children in the early 1900抯 as a toy and were still quite readily seen into the early 70抯. From those humble beginnings of course someone put a motor on it and the powered scooter was born.

There are many types of scooters these days to be certain, ranging from the low cost low profile sleekly designed push scooters that are reminiscent of the first push scooters we knew merely as a toy, to super fast motorized pro versions that can scoot along at 40mph or more. Some scooters are gas powered, some electric Autel MaxiSys Pro, and yes the ever popular foot powered scooter still is loved by many

Pocket bikes are sometimes referred to as mini motorcycles and are very small, single person transportation devices, usually only about 47 inches long and 18 inches tall, usually with gas motors that are 50cc抯 or less. Pocket bikes started out as a fad but have gained popularity over the years. Many different styles are in production today, ranging from Harley Davidson look a likes, to those that resemble most of the modern motorcycles on the market. Pocket bikes not only have become a new type of racing phenomenon, but also have gained popularity as a personal transportation device, usually with those of a younger age group.

Simple motor scooters with small gas engines like those that became popular in the late 60抯 and early 70抯 from several major motorcycle manufactures have again gained great popularity. Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and others have again begun to produce moderately priced motor scooters again, that have the unique U shaped leg space in the middle of the frame structure for 搒it?riding rather then straddle riding. These companies have also begun to produce some much more powerful scooters as well, sporting in upwards of 650cc engines and more.

Cushman scooters were once among the most recognized and sought after scooter in the industry. Cushman scooters, among the first power scooters produced, were constructed in my home state of Nebraska at a plant in Lincoln from the 1930s through 1965. The Cushman scooter became iconic in its following and even today remains in the minds of many scooter enthusiasts, as the best scooter ever built.

The advent of better battery technology gave rise to a new kind of scooter that has greatly improved life in general for persons with disabilities or health issues that hinder personal mobility. The personal mobility scooter usually configured on a three or four wheel design, has become quite popular as well as helpful to a new demographic of scooter user. Mobility scooters help in many ways inside the home and out in the world as well. People can live independently longer with the help of these mobility scooters. Clean, quiet and easy to operate from armrest controls, personal mobility scooters have become a sort of saving grace for many with mobility issues.

So you see scooters, in what ever configuration, have found new followings in young and old, for fun and for serious use purposes. Electric or gas or even the old reliable push scooter, scooters will be a part of American and world culture for many years to come. It抯 not likely that gas is going to go back to under a dollar a gallon any time soon, so scooters are likely to play a bigger role in personal transportation in the future. Scoot safely, and no mater for what purpose you want or need a scooter, smile and have some fun, life is short.

The Best SUVs Under $20,000

Looking for a Midsize SUV but want to stay on a budget? No problem! Who said SUVs have to be a drain on your pocketbook? We don't think so. To prove our theory, we decided to look at available Sport Utility Vehicles that can hold their own against other top-selling SUVs, but can also be as easy on your finances as the payment for a mid-size car.

First, let's consider what you should look for in a Midsize SUV. Most people prefer SUVs for cars for two reasons: more cargo space and better safety features. If you're looking for an SUV at any price, you should make sure it meets your needs. Cargo space first. An SUV should provide you with enough space to haul the type of cargo you typically need to take with you, as well as seat the correct number of passengers. This is the reason, in and of itself, many people decide on a Midsize SUV over a Compact SUV. If it doesn't meet your needs, it's not a good value at any price.

Second, safety is important. An affordable SUV doesn't mean that you should compromise on basic safety features. After all, what's going to be more important in an accident - leather seats or well-designed airbags? Make sure your SUV offers what you need. Need a 2-wheel drive vehicle? Get one. Do you deal with snowy conditions several months out of the year? If so, then you're better suited for a 4-wheel drive SUV. Do yourself a favor and get a 4-wheel drive. If you don't, you're sure to regret scrimping on the features that make handling the vehicle easier and safer.

So what are the options? We found three dependable Midsize SUVs that start at under $20,000. Each has impressive features, but we found the one we thought was the best value.

Dodge Nitro. A four-door wagon style SUV with a base price starting at $19,225. Although it's smaller than the other two, its boxy design gives it a bit more accessible cargo space and seats four adults comfortably. The Nitro's body style is trendy but functional - the scaled down exterior dimensions makes negotiating traffic and getting in and out of tight spaces easier than many compact SUVs.

Kia Sorrento. A four-door wagon style SUV with a base price starting at $19 Launch CReader 8011,995. Available with an impressive amount of features even on the base model, the Sorrento is more enjoyable to look at than to drive. On bumpy roads, the ride and handling can be frustrating and the resale value is nothing to write home about. The warranty, however, is generous meaning Kia stands by the quality of the parts they use maxidas ds808. Always a plus.

Isuzu Ascender 5-Passenger. Our favorite Midsize SUV choice with a base price starting at $19,459. With room for five adult passengers and impressive amount of cargo space, you'll feel like you're driving a full-size SUV. Several standard features are worth mentioning: the hydraulically assisted rack-and-pinion power steering system, the anti-lock brake and traction control systems, and its efficient inline 6-cylinder engine. And of course, it comes with Isuzu's famous warranty: 7-year/75,000 Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and Isuzu's 7-year/75,000 Mile Roadside Assistance Program. Nice.

We all want a 4x4 truck for the power and stability when going off road. And Isuzu has you covered with the best price and best in overall comfort. Try out the all new Ascender!
