The roots of how the motor fueled back country racing series known as nascar began in the 1920 's with the rise in need for alcohol, and the increased punishment for getting caught with it, bootleggers had to upgrade their cars to evade the police while on their deliveries. With the souped up cars the bootleggers started to take pride in their driving skills and their mechanical skills because they were able to evade the police time after time and continue to bring in an immense amount of money. In order to evade the police alot of the bootleggers started to customize their vehicles to perform to a higher standard than a stock or regular car could do. They also made inventions to lighten the car and make it easier to evade the cops. One such invention is the rear view mirror, back in the 1920’s they would have a person riding shotgun which added weight and slow the car, so to reduce the weight they installed a mirror to show behind them without needing a person to tell them about a car coming.
I do not think that driverless cars are the future of America. From personal experience I know that the batteries in electric cars are not very reliable. When I was with my uncle in his electric car driving to the grocery store all of the sudden the car starts beeping rapidly and indicating that we had seven minutes of drive time left on the battery. The charge indicator also said that the battery was fully charged. When we took the car to the shop the next day we found out that there was a circuit board error that involved the battery.
True stories abound of good old boys transporting loads of illegal moonshine in their souped up 34 Fords, trying to elude the revenue agents as they drove without headlights along dark twisting dirt roads at speeds exceeding 120 miles per hour. The need to prove who had the fastest car led to weekend races at tracks carved out of pastures and corn fields. Bill France saw the need for formally organized competition and his efforts led to the founding in 1948 of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), motorsport’s preeminent stock car racing organization. In the tumultuous half-century since, stock car racing has evolved from a band of hell-bent-for-leather drivers who raced for gas money on tracks primarily in the South, to millionaire owners and drivers who race at tracks across the country from North Carolina to California. NASCAR ends its season with a nationally televised black-tie awards banquet in New York
William A. Flores BUL – 5332 FACTS: Harry Robinson and his family decided to move from Massena, New York, a small town on the St. Lawrence Seaway to Tucson, Arizona. Kay was driving the 1976 Audi 100 LS that she and Harry bought from Seaway Volkswagen in Massena to Tucson, Arizona when accident transpired just a few miles outside Tulsa County in Creek County, Oklahoma. A car behind them crashed into the rare side of the Audi and immediately started a fire in the area over the back seat after they got hit. The blazed spread quickly over the rare seat, and the inside of the car got rapidly hot. The result of the accident was so severe physically and mentally for Kay and her two children.
I was saving up my money to get a new car on my phone. I kind of pushed a cop off and he may have died but look on the bright side I got a free gun and I wasn’t wanted. I was going to buy the tank but I didn’t so I did the only thing that I always wanted to do. I got online and started a war at the army base with my friends we were winning but when we all got five stars it started to get hard there were tanks helicopters so we got upgraded we all got gets tanks RPGs and all the most deadly thing we could. I wasted most of my cash but it was worth it we all had a good fight but we they all had to go so their was only me and a stranger so we died but I never gave up.
The day I got the car it seemed to be perfect. The sun was shining a breeze was blowing and everything just felt great. Everyone was in the truck for a one hour ride to go get the car, a 1973 Chevrolet Belair. It came with an Oldsmobile V8, no exhaust, a full tank of gas and a battery that worked and, to my surprise it was still able to move under it’s own power. I drove it home where I checked it over and found it had no registration which added to the fun, perfect for a track car, after some window removal.
“So I looked in the mirror and saw a large convertible with the top down overtaking me at 600 miles per hour,” (Barry 572). That car couldn’t and wouldn’t have actually passed him going 600 miles per hour faster than what he was going, but when Barry says this, it just helps the readers visualize how bad of driving the drivers of Miami are. Barry continues to use exaggeration because it is a smart and helpful way to win people over in an
It could be even targeting the strong people of Detroit. The narrator stated in the beginning, that the city has been “through hell and back”, the city has come a long way from where it started. They have built the Chrysler stronger and better than ever. The target audience can be anyone that has a car but wants something more reliable. The commercial is trying to persuade the audience that the Chrysler 200 is made with hard steel by hard working people.
In 1950, father and son made history when the Porsche sports car was introduced. This was a dream come true for Ferdinand Porsche as he was quoted saying “I couldn 't find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself.” Porsche is an exclusive sports car manufacturer. As years progressed after the launch of its first sports car in
When it comes to technology, it tends to move fast – really fast, and in my opinion there’s no technology that’s moving faster today than autonomous driving. When I was a kid, one of my favorite TV shows was Knight Rider. Like just about everyone else, my favorite character in the show was Kit, the car. Other than having the ability to speak, the thing I loved most about Kit was the fact that it drove itself if needed. If a dog is a man’s best friend, then surly a self-driving car would be his best man.
