Some cars simply come and go while others become classics. There is a large group of people with a lot of interest in these kinds of vehicles and their scarcity and vintage design not only makes them appealing, but also quite valuable. However, the way in which a certain car becomes a classic is not an exact science. Nobody can predict it and this is best illustrated by the fact that several cars have went on to become classics despite not being very good.
1. Reliant Robin
To be fair, most people do not consider the Robin to be a classic. In fact, most look at it as simply a bad car that gained popularity due to its most obvious selling point ?having three wheels instead of four. However, there is still a large group of Reliant Robin fans. For a time in the UK, the Robin was everywhere as it was seen as a cheap way to get around. Many of those people stuck with it ever since and look at the Robin as a good example of British engineering. Read the rest of this entry »
Turning 25 can actually be a scary thing. You are no longer in college and probably are also done with grad school. You are expected to be an adult, but at the same time you may still have to deal with things that people in their early twenties have to deal with like roommates and a car that is kind of a piece of junk. There are great ways to move on from the party days of your early twenties, to the increased responsibility of your upper twenties and early thirties, without giving up your youth.
One way to really move on from your college days is to move into your own place. For some young people with nicer jobs, you may even be able to save up to buy a house or condo. Even if you can’t afford to buy, you can often afford to get a place of your own at this stage, even if it is just a studio.

If you think you are ready to make the move, start by figuring out how much you can afford and which neighborhood you want to live in and then figure out a way to make it work.

Everybody (who is into cars or movie chase scenes) has probably seen the classics and knows them by heart. We’re talking the Steve McQueen Ford Mustang chases-the-Dodge Charger driven by stuntman extraordinaire Bill Hickman scene in Bullitt. We’re talking the Jean Reno Peugeot 406 and 300 (yes, 300) stunt drivers driving various Audi’s and BMW’s to oblivion in Ronin. That makes us wonder though, what about the near classics or simply lesser known chases? Aren’t they worth considering? Read the rest of this entry »

As a result, they need to be in top shape if you are to get a top performance out of your car. However, many people fail to look after their tires properly.

There are the obvious selections of color and style, and if you would like buy an American car and contribute to the fight against terrorism, or if you’re willing to buy an international car.
