Thinking of buying a car? Before you buy know what to look for and what questions to ask. Of all the great questions to ask, it seems as though this is the most important car buying question there is.
The first question to ask yourself about buying a car is: Do I need a new car or a used car?
The answer to this question truly lies on how much you are seeking to spend. There are plenty of new cars that are priced the same as used cars, but the difference is in the details. A new car that is priced the same a used cars will most likely be smaller, two door, no air conditioning, and no radio. But for the same price, you can find a used car with low miles that has many features that the low priced new car does not have.
Paul Sherry Dodge in Piqua, Ohio is conveniently located near Dayton Ohio, Troy Ohio, and Columbus Ohio. As of recently we have been preparing ourselves for the release of this sporty fuel-efficient car.

Comments Off on Christmas 2011 — Birth of a New Tradition (Detriot would agree…)
As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!
It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper? Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?
Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.
Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell [...]
Congested cities are fast becoming test tubes for scientists studying the impact of traffic fumes on the brain.
As roadways choke on traffic, researchers suspect that the tailpipe exhaust from cars and trucks especially tiny carbon particles already implicated in heart disease, cancer and respiratory ailments may also injure brain cells and synapses key to learning and memory.
New public-health studies and laboratory experiments suggest that, at every stage of life, traffic fumes exact a measurable toll on mental capacity, intelligence and emotional stability. “There are more and more scientists trying to find whether and why exposure to traffic exhaust can damage the human brain,” says medical epidemiologist Jiu-Chiuan Chen at the University of Southern California who is analyzing the effects of traffic pollution on the brain health of 7,500 women in 22 states. “The human data are very new.”
So far, the evidence is largely circumstantial but worrisome, researchers say. And [...]

The Detroit News General Motor Co. reported flat vehicle sales in October – up just 2 percent from the same month last year – while crosstown rival Chrysler Group LLC saw a 27 percent spike in sales.
For Detroit-based GM, retail sales were up 3 percent and accounted for 77 percent of all sales, the carmaker said Tuesday morning in a news release.
“Chevrolet led the way for GM in October, driven by the continued success of the Cruze and Equinox,” said Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations, in a statement. “Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC have all performed well this year, which has set the stage for our transition to a higher mix of 2012 model-year vehicles. Combined with the launches of several new fuel-efficient cars, including the Chevrolet Sonic and Buick LaCrosse eAssist, we are very well positioned going forward.”

Comments Off on Taking Roadkill Off the Menu – Car and Driver
This article provides some pretty modern and creative ways to try and keep animals off the road or at least alert drivers when an animal may be close. Investigations of dangerous crossings for animals, done by state officials, have shown specific spots in which overpasses or underpasses may be used to limit collisions with animals. Also infrared sensors may be used to alert drivers of animals nearby on roadsides.
I was most amazed with the different states legislature regarding what citizens can do with their road kill. Some states allow you to take anything you hit, while some make you give the road kill to charity in order to eat. And in Illinois you can only keep your hit road kill if you are not delinquent on your child support payments.
Further down in the article they provide a recipe, yes a recipe, for how to prepare a venison meal if you happen to hit [...]
