Finding Places To Charge Your Car

24 Aug

Do you have an electric car? Did you know that PlugShare is a good resource for finding places to charge. You can also sign up for EVGO and Chargepoint so you can access the fast chargers. If you don’t want to sign up, then you may find charging stations at Walmarts and Dunkin Donuts. However you’ll have to check stores individually because availability varies from location to location. Where do you recommend charging your vehicle?

Road-Racing For Everyone?

6 Aug

Have you ever dreamed of auto-racing? A new trend sweeping North America is racing cars that cost $500 or less – it’s called 24 Hours of LeMons. All you need to do is buy a car for $500 or less (not including safety equipment, brakes, and wheels/tires) and have a valid street driver’s license.

A friend mine bought a car, started driving with a group of guys and enjoys racing on the weekends. Are you thinking of driving? In order to drive, your car must pass the 24 hours of LeMons’ tech inspection. You will need to add a roll cage, seat harness, fuel cell protector and fire extinguishing equipment.

Top Gear

15 Aug

Car enthusiasts if you”ve never seen Top Gear, then put on the brakes and cruise over to this website. What is Top Gear? A TV Show dedicated to cars and those who love to drive cars. The website features videos and blogs from hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. It also features behind-the-scenes info from the show and car reviews for every new car on sale. I especially enjoy all the tech talk when it comes to on-board communications and dashboard improvements.

GM to Sell New Cars On Ebay

10 Aug

According to the New York Times General Motors will start selling brand new cars on eBay tomorrow, August 11th. As part of a test group of California auto dealers, the beta program will allow eBay users to bid on new GM cars, but customers must choose the “Buy It Now” option.

The eBay motors concept has been running for years but now GM is taking this concept of online auto bidding to the next level, however this time, it’s out of necessity. Will this direct option of purchasing cars and avoiding seeing the stereotypical plaid dressed car salesman save the auto giant? How does this option of directly buying a new car straight from the manufacturer make you feel? I personally would purchase a car direct, however I still would stop into the dealership for a test drive and get consultation.

Would you buy a brand new car off of eBay at the “Buy It Now” price?
