In 1969 Chevrolet included a fiber optics system on the center console that enabled the driver to monitor the lights function. The Corvette’s engine statistics, including horsepower, torque, displacement and compression ratio were displayed below the shifter.

Due to a recent resurgence in popularity, it has once again taken the top spot as kings of the automotive world. The company was officially formed in 1906 when Charles Stewart Rolls and Fredrick Henry Royce formed a partnership. The company’s six-cylinder Silver Ghost was debuted that same year. RR was unlike any other manufacturer of the era. Their attention to detail and dedication to quality was clear from the start.
During the 1920s, Rolls-Royce opened a second factory in Springfield, Massachusetts in order to keep up with the rising demand. This factory only stayed open for 10 years, but they launched the Phantom 1, which would ultimately become the defining Rolls-Royce model.
The car was powered by a pushrod-operated overhead valve engine with detachable cylinder heads. This was very cutting-edge technology for the time. And in 1931, with the acquisition of Bentley, Rolls-Royce had the market …

Get Authorized To Operate Lifting Equipment!
Forklifts can be really difficult to operate sometimes and the driver needs to be responsible of what is he doing. That is because forklifts are used to lift heavy containers and place them somewhere else. Instead of manual labor, this method is much more efficient and quick. With a forklift, you can lift several hundred kilos and move them in other places in about 5 minutes. However, you need to be licensed to operate a forklift because there are a few risks involved.
First and foremost, it is highly recommended to use forklifts to move things around but in some cases, the driver isn’t paying attention and the cargo can fall apart. This is not a good thing especially if the cargo contains something very expensive or fragile. Also, the company doesn’t afford to pay for damages each time a forklift driver makes a mistake. That is why there is a need for trained and qualified forklift drivers.
A competent driver has to be careful when he picks the cargo up and when he drops it as well. It is very important to avoid sudden maneuvers but move quickly at the same time in …

The Choice of Wedding Transport Is Very Personal
Who does not dream of arriving at the church in an open horse drawn carriage or a gleaming Rolls Royce? Times have moved on a long way since the bride was accompanied by her bridesmaids and family on the short walk to the church. Very few brides walk any more, preferring instead to make a grand appearance that will place her firmly at the centre of the ceremony.
The choice of transport is endless, and depends a lot on the chosen theme of the day. Universally popular is the vintage Rolls Royce, bedecked with ribbons and flowers, or a classic Bentley or Daimler. All will come with a chauffeur, who will ensure that the bride arrives fashionably late.
What could be more romantic than arriving to the sound of hooves? Open topped carriages, with burnished leather seats, pulled by matching shire horses make a stunning entrance. Closed carriages can be hired for the less than clement English weather, or even Cinderella coaches for a fairytale wedding.
Not everybody wants to take the classic or formal approach. There are many alternatives available for hire, for those with a more modern or quirky view. …

This trend has outstripped the older trend of buying a BMW with a 4 or 5 years auto loan. That is one of
the reasons why so many pre-owned BMWs are hitting the market and being snapped up by discerning buyers.The phenomenon of the BMW lease has radically changed the dynamics of the pre-owned automobile market by flooding it with reasonably priced luxury cars in good condition. Until ten years ago, a typical pre-owned BMW would be more like a battered old rattletrap than a luxury car; it’s a totally different ball game today, with most BMW dealers and used car stores striving to find low mileage BMWs with an accident-free history.
