Encyclopedia

Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

  • Mini Treasures at the Stancemini Car Club Meet
    by esegura on September 24, 2018 at 11:59 pm

    LONG BEACH, California — Sundays are for church service and resting at home is what my great-aunt told me the last time I visited her. She said that anyone who works all week long should not do laundry or anything that resembles work on Sunday. I took my great-aunt’s advice and bailed on my routine tasks...

    by Kelly Pleskot on September 24, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Slowly but surely, the BMW X7 is shedding camouflage before its big debut later this year. From these latest spy shots, we can see a little more of the sheetmetal, and we get a much better view of the interior. The prototype X7 was well covered up when our colleagues at Motor Trend drove it a... The post 2019 BMW X7 Spied and Shows Off Near-Production-Ready Interior appeared first on Automobile Magazine.

    People often tell me I have a wonderful job. And I’m not being modest, falsely or otherwise, when I reply, “Well, yes, if you like cars, you’d like my job. But if you don’t, or you don’t like writing—or better yet, if you don’t like writing inside on a beautiful day while a turbocharged 488...

    by esegura on September 24, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    To paraphrase George Orwell, all Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Carrozzeria Touring coupes are beautiful, but some are more beautiful than others. This year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Best of Show winner is a magnificent car, a worthy recipient of the Billionaire Car Club’s ultimate grand prize. But in my not at all humble opinion, it... The post By Design: 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta Coupe appeared first on Automobile Magazine. […]
