Car Engines Jonah Hornum Wilde Lake High School Jonah Hornum Torque Torque of a car is very important to its performance. Torque is the measure of how much force is acting on an object and how that causes the object to rotate. (What is torque). Rotating the wheels of a car is torque and that helps the car get up to speed faster. Many performance cars have very fast 0-60 mph speeds, like the corvette, challenger and exotic cars like the Porsche, Bentley, Ashton Martin etc. Everyone wants to know exactly what torque does; it is basically the amount of turning power you have, basically like using a wrench. When looking at car specifications, the torque that is shown is the maximum torque of the internal combustion engine.
For us Americans the car is not just a helpful machine that helps us get around. The “sacred” American car is one of the most important status symbols of The American society. The newer and more expensive somebody car is a, the more well-off it’s driver is presumed, in reality that is not really the case. Many Americans in todays
My parents advised me to choose wisely because they were only buying me one car, I wanted a 2013 Dodge Challenger. One day I received a text message from my parents, and on the screen appeared a deep blue 2013 Dodge Challenger with Hemi motor. They asked if I liked it, and at the time I only had my driver’s permit, but I immediately fell head of heels. As I eased into the driver’s seat, with no license, and shifted gears, I could feel my heart pounding faster and faster, and I knew it was the car for me.
Why Americans Prefer Foreign-built Cars For years people have thought that Americans were buying more American-made cars than other brands. But now the truth has come up, Americans are buying more foreign-built cars than ever. For example, more people prefer a Toyota or a Honda over a Chevy or Ford now. According to the American Consumer Satisfaction Index, Lexus, Toyota and Cadillac shared the top spot in consumer satisfaction (“U.S. buyers prefer” 1). Still, many Americans prefer foreign-built cars over American made cars because foreign-built cars offer better reliability and longevity, better fuel mileage, and better performance on the roads.
The car I have is an awesome car, I enjoy driving it every day and just cost a small amount of money. I took all the pieces of advice my brother gave me before buying it and it worked fantastically. I have seen people that after spending tons of money on their car they end up don't like it. I know is hard to find a car with all the specs you want and for a low cost, but luckily for you, I am here to teach you how to buy a car.
A car demands a lot of attention and like almost everything in life, what you put into it is what you get out of
Some people love their first cars, their first new cars, or their collector cars. I happen to have a special place in my heart for my current car. I drive a Toyota Solara SLE V6 and I absolutely love it because it is me. My car is a color known as Oceanus Blue on stone grey and has a great set of options. I have satellite radio, a six disc CD player along with a sun roof and yes the customary air conditioning and heater. My car also has heated leather seats and lovely wood grain touches on the interior. The fact that it is a coupe gives it appealing lines and a sporty feel. Enough about the specs of the vehicle and let me talk a little about the sentimental value. The car also has a great on board trip computer that provides information on average miles per gallon of gas as well as average miles driven per trip. My car's sleek design is perfect as far as safety goes. I was rear ended once and with the exception of the bumper the car was in perfect condition. The airbags deployed as expected and I was safe that time. The car has also never left me stranded which is more than I can say for a previous car that I had. My car represents a compliment to my style as a person. I like cars that are fast, have a nice sleek look and provide a good service. My car gives me that service and that look that I crave and enjoy. The car does have a V6 engine which makes it a bit hard on gas but not as hard as other cars. I love the car because even after 5 years it still looks impressive on the road and it still works impressively. Whenever I take out I am amazed at how well the engine responds as if it were new. Part of what makes this car my favorite is the road trips. I take my care on extended trips to places like Tampa, St. Augustine, and Ft. Lauderdale. I love the handling because the steering wheel is soft and smooth. One particular road trip that makes this car my
The Porsche 365 Outlaw Coupe, manufactured in 1962 according to its dealer Paul Stephens, is a magnificent vehicle. It can easily break your bank account but worthy nonetheless. Here’s why. Aside from being such a rare find, this work of art started life as an original 356 B T6 and after its manufacture delivered to Competition Motors in Hollywood USA. The 356 Outlaw Coupe though beautifully built has more than beauty on its side having raced the border to border event making it even more appealing. It is safe to say then, that this 365 Outlaw Coupe simply was made to capture the spirit of the event.
This specific piece of art looks weird and out of place in it’s setting, creating unsettling contrast, as it is behind the Milwaukee art museum-a beautiful, sleek, and clean cut building. It is also in the middle of a field next to the beautiful lake, which is such a nice light hearted place. However, this sculpture is the opposite, and intentionally so. About 30 feet up in the air, there is a full-sized red car wrapped around a poll. The car is missing a rear view mirror, has a shattered windshield, dented in hood, and bent at an impossible angle. It is almost folded completely in half, giving the viewer the impression that it is two cars, not one at first glance. When looking at the car, someone can’t help but wonder if it was placed there for drunk driving awareness, to remind casual lake visitors that life is precious and short, or simply there because some artist really wanted to bend a car.
You just can’t pretend after you’ve been exposed to the truth. “Baby You Can Drive My Car” by di Giovanni, Janine and “The Danger of a Single Story,” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie both represent fearlessness Independence.
Driving by dealerships on the way to work every morning I see people with hands on the back of their heads standing in those car lots looking. They go from car to car, pointing and shrugging. I recently found myself in the same position this week. The search I need a new car, but I'm not a car guy. I don't have a classic 1968 Ford Mustang, nor can I afford a brand new Benz or Lexus. Honestly, to me a car is a means. I need to get places, there's no subway where I live and buses just don't cut it. As much as I hate it, I need a car and the one I am driving now is ready to die. I didn't always feel that way. Starting my search I asked Google what he thought. In return, I had lists of this past years top cars in order of safety, gas mileage, price. It was like looking at toy cars on the shelf of a store. I didn't see any difference between them and had no better idea of what I wanted. Asking coworkers, they could only tell me what they disliked, saying, 'Don't get a Ford, unless you want to fix or repair it daily,' or 'Don't get a Chevy, it's not worth it.' Well, then what do I get? Like those people I see on my way into the rote, I started making my rounds at the dealerships: Ford, Chevy, Acura, Toyota. I spoke to salesmen and they worked hard to convince me I needed which ever car we looked at. Last weekend, I weighed the prices, the mileage, and the possibility beside colors and payments and features. I came out with nothing and felt like I was less sure. I eyed an economic hybrid, thinking maybe I could buy a nice green Prius; or go for a retro look and get a Dodge Charger, so I could rev with a little power. This and that: apples, oranges, it was all the same to me. I broke down and asked my wife, "What should I get?" All she could say was, "You are you going to disagree with whatever I suggest." When she showed me the link to a Chrysler Minivan, I had to admit she was right. The Memory When I was sixteen I bought my first and best
My First Car I was 17 years old when I bought my first car. It was a green 2000 Honda Accord. It was an experience I would never forget. It was summer of 2007 and I was on my way to becoming a senior the following semester. I wanted to start the year of perfect, for te past couple of years in high school I was walking home, catching rides to parties but this year was going be different this year I was finally getting my own wheels. The thing is it was a lot easier said than done.
The car I would love to have in my lifetime is a Hyper car. A hyper car with a world record breaking speed of 270.49 mph, that can go 0-60 in 2.7 seconds the Venom GT! This car has shattered about 4 hyper car world records. Just imagine having a car with an estimated top speed of 278 mph. Backed up with a 90 degree iron/aluminum block head, this car can ROAR! Did i mention it had 1625 horse power! That’s equivalent to 1,211,762.500 Watts!
I was getting ready to attend college and wanted something nice for transportation even though i drove a pretty decent car by this time, it was a V8 91 rs camaro that my dad bought when i was still in highschool, I did not like it but at the same time did not dislike it, I felt neutral towards it. Still i wanted a car that i liked, something that i would feel
