Aston Martin Rapide S: A Family-Friendly Supercar

My family was awed by the car’s exquisite outlook. No doubt, it is the most beautiful sedan - a head turner. The interior of the car is lustrous with supple materials and glass switch-gear.

The car is packed with a standard Aston performance powered by its 550-horsepower V12 engine...

“It’s a HEMI”

“It’s a HEMI”

You don’t have to be much of a car enthusiast to know there is something special about the word “Hemi”. It’s a term widely used in the car business and has been for several decades -in almost reverent terms at times.   But exactly what is a Hemi and what’s all the fuss about? To answer that question, let’s step back a few years and visit Chrysler in the 1940s. In the late 1940s, WWII had ended and everyone wanted a car –especially powerful, fast ones. To meet this demand, Chrysler introduced not just its first V8 engine but engines with unique cylinder head designs. Unlike other previous designs, these new engines had combustion chambers that were cast round in the shape of a dome, or “hemisphere”. This hemispherical design allowed engineers to place the intake an...

How Long Should Car Batteries Last?

When your car battery does its job, it doesn’t demand very much attention. But when they get old, they often misbehave and crank the vehicles engine slowly or perhaps not even start the car. Usually this means it’s time for a new battery. A common question is, “When a battery should be replaced so it doesn’t let me down?” Well, the answer is that it “depends”. A rough rule of thumb is a car battery lasts about four, maybe five years, under normal conditions and then its best to get a new one. But what are normal conditions? "Normal conditions" consist of a number of factors that exist in theory but rarely seem to happen. Normal in this case means the battery goes through full charge cycles, isn't subjected to extreme temperatures, is attached to a properly functionin...

General Motors the Automatic

General Motors the Automatic

Before there were automatic transmissions there were manual ones. Manual transmissions require the driver to shift between gears so that the vehicle can be speeded up or slowed down while the engine rotated within an optimum RPM range. For many decades manual transmissions were good enough for most drivers, but not all. Some just didn’t like the intricate shifting procedure and some, well, just never got the hang of it. The result: during the 1930s, many of the larger car companies began to experiment with transmissions that “shifted themselves”. This was seen a way to capture additional customers In 1937, the first semi-automatic transmissions appeared in several General Motors vehicles. GM dubbed these the “Automatic Safety Transmissions"(AST). With planetary gears and a co...

For Every Season, Turn, Turn, Turn

For Every Season, Turn, Turn, Turn

Back at the beginning of the automotive age, the early 1900s, drivers signaled to pedestrians and other drivers their intention to turn (or stop) their cars with their hands. There were no formal turn signals back then. The first modern turn electric signal can be attributed to Edgar A. Walz, Jr. who, in 1925, secured a patent for one and tried to market it to major car manufacturers. Believe it or not they just weren't interested, and the patent expired fourteen years later. Interesting, the turn signal situation in Europe started differently. The solution for signaling turns or lane changes was originally by hand signals, but later via “trafficators”. Trafficators were mechanical arms built into the sides of cars. They were powered by electro magnets that raised an arm indicati...
