I remember back in high school meeting with my friends at the local Sonic drive-in. We’d hang out and munch on some chili cheese tator tots while sipping down a cool forty-four ounces of cherry lime-aid. Sonic was open pretty late, so it was a good place to hang out until curfew. There was one night that I’ll never forget; the day that my arch nemesis looked like a fool in front of everybody.
It was Friday night at about 8pm. Me and some classmates had a science project due the following Monday and we wanted to crank it out before ahead of time. We were assigned teams to work in, so the pairing was pretty random. Out of the six team members, I had two friends, two people I didn’t really know that well and the stereo-typical high school football jock (read: total meat head). I had picked up my two friends in my Isuzu Rodeo and the Jock had picked up the other two team members. When he showed up, it was obvious he didn’t want to be there. Looking back, who could blame him; he was more popular than us and we were doing school work on a Friday night, but the fact remained that the project needed to be done before Monday.
Has any traffic accident happened to you while you’re driving on the road? You may have come across some bumps with other cars during your driving experience. You complain the heavy traffic jam and regret driving so fast. On the other hand, you doubt if your car is really a very good one. Do some auto parts function well to protect the car for you?
It is very important for a driver to drive his car carefully to avoid traffic accidents. However, as for the car itself, it is designed with bumper as well as a set of body kits including side skirts to protect it. When a traffic crash happens, they can effectively absorb the crash effects to reduce the possible damage and hurt to the lowest degree.
Plymouth Motors was founded by Walter P. Chrysler in 1928. It was said the name Plymouth was formed to resemble freedom, endurance, strength and ruggedness. It was eventually called the Plymouth Motor Corporation. It became Chrysler’s division which sold the lowest-priced cars. It generated some sales but even the low price wasn’t able to save it from the aftermath of the Great Depression.
During the 1930′s, Plymouth once again attempted an entry to the market by releasing its first station wagon, only to be disappointed again because of the failure to captivate what the consumers wanted in a car at that time.
Someone once referred to people who parallel park by feel as “braille parkers.”
Anyone who parks in a parking garage or on the street knows all too well the risks involved. Dents, dings and scratches usually end up all over your vehicle, especially on the bumpers. In fact, the most common complaint in parking was damage to the front and rear bumpers.
It’s amazing how many people out there feel it’s OK to “love tap” your bumper while parallel parking. In the internet studies we’ve conducted, over 30% of the people feel bumping into the other vehicles around them is an acceptable way to “parallel park” their vehicle.
Years ago you wouldn’t dare drive anywhere without a spare tire. Back in the 50′s when I first started to drive you needed a couple of sets of tires on hand. Summer tires and winter tires and, if you got 25,000 miles out of them you were lucky. Back in the early years of the automobile if you could get 50 miles without a flat tire it was a mile stone. Cars had spare tires and rims on both sides of the vehicle.
So How About Today?
