This is Race 1 of the 2015 Australian GT Racing championship being held in Adelaide. Some of the cars being driven are Ferrari 458 GT3, Audi R8 Ultra,Aston Martin Vantage GT3, McLaren MP421 C, Porsche 997 GTR and Lamborghini Gallardo FLT1. In the beginning, a warm up lap is carried out by the cars behind the safety car. As per the rules, each car needs to be in the pit lane within 20 minutes of the race.The start of this race was very peaceful and did not witness any crashes or clashes. Within the first lap itself, one could witness wheel to wheel racing and one of the McLaren vehicles spun on the track.

The Ford Transit Connect Wagon 2015 is a joy to ride and much better than its predecessor. A long drive can be a better experience on this one obviously because it is the second generation model. The titanium model is a delight being a cross between an Escape and a Focus but does not match with its name because it looks nothing like a wagon. It is a three-row wagon that has a longer wheelbase. Its styling feature is the greenhouse that makes sure of excellent visibility from all angles. The tailgate of the vehicle is a one piece structure that has to be lifted up.


Check the space Availability Inside:

The interior of the car is very comfortable with comfy leather seats and has a dash layout which is similar to the Focus. The door and the dash have an even solid finish which makes the car look beautiful from the inside. Three people can sit in the middle row and two more in the back. The chair is very comfortable and the seats are raised in stadium-style and both the rows can  slide back and forth. The third row is the most comfortable of the three but not easily accessible. It is more of a utilitarian vehicle than the versatile and traditional minivans. All the seats have ample headroom so it should not be difficult to accommodate a tall person. The middle row can be folded to give additional space vertically. If the second and the third rows are folded then a lot of cargo space is available. The space availability makes the vehicle useful for traveling with family or carrying goods.


Four-Cylinder Engine!

The Transit Connect Wagon, unlike the other Ford cars, uses a turbocharged four-cylinder. It gives greater speed and performance that makes the car more suitable for long drives. The car picks up speed smoothly, modulating it is easily. It also gives a good mileage when taken on the highway which is an improvement from the previous model. It is very stable when the car is running at a great speed but during slow speed with small twists and turns it might not be as comfortable. The sound from the tire suspensions is not as deafening as it used to be. The suspension noise does not harm your daily driving experience.

Beautiful and Agile Machine:

The vehicle is very agile while you are taking sharp turns it does not roll too much and stays in control. The steering is really good and gives a natural feeling while you are turning it. It is assisted by electric power and is very enjoyable is spite of the speed. The car has been extensively tested and has emerged with flying colors. As a second generation vehicle, it has improved that its former model in every way. Driving this car is an enjoyable experience and any of the shortcomings is covered by the model’s beauty, agility, and quite affordable for customers who want a value for the price they pay.


Even at the time of car being non functional, it can pay back a huge amount with simple ideas. Every object on earth can be useful, useless or remain unused, so is the car. The one which is useless for us can be made useful for others. We may not be requiring it anymore but there could be buyer certainly looking for it. There are some techniques which can increase the value of car to a great extent and make your rich. The ideas below if implemented will definitely be a boon to enhance the value.

1. Understand the market – It’s not always that seller wins the game. Just like share market & property market, one has to see the demand and availability of cars in the market to turn out into a jack king for the car. It’s better to wait for the right time to sell the old & dump cars than just selling it on any day. The umbrellas are sold the most on rainy day and the same has be checked for the car.

2. Target customers – This is extremely important to identify the right customer to get the right value. The junkyard holder will pay the least while a person with low income but aspiring to buy his first car will pay much more. Always sell it to the person who has not bought it before as the experience of sitting in the car will make him feel better than the one who is already possessing the cars.

3. Competitive Pricing – It’s’ good to sell at reasonable and affordable price to save the storage costs than to wait for months to sell at higher price. Every month, the value of car goes down with the advancement in technology and launch of new models, so does the price goes down. Hence, it’s a good idea to ask for the reasonable price for your car.

4. Improve Aesthetics – People love to spend more on aesthetics than the other conditions. If they feel good to see it from inside, they will surely pay higher amount. It’s very better to spend small amount on improving aesthetics to increase the price by a large amount.

5. Overhauling – Some cars run very efficiently but some may churn up during their life. Thus, an overhauling should be done for smooth running of the vehicle and get more value. It’s best to refine or replace the tires for increasing the value.

6. Sell components – When there is no scope of getting good price for the car, separate the components and sell them individually which will pay much better price for the car.

7. Use classified ads and online platforms – As the real buyer may not be aware and sitting away from you, the best way is to reach them through classified in newspapers and internet. This is the simplest and most efficient technique to touch the target customer and get more price. If the above mentioned points are followed carefully, there is no means to get a penny short than the best.

Now day’s car owners often prefer increasing the interval between oil changes. But oil changes at regular intervals discard abrasive dirt and metal particles which otherwise would affect the engine.  Do not hesitate to change oil filters because as the old clogged with oil and dirt continue to mix impurities to the brand new clean oil.

Do not miss to change the brake fluid in every 2 years. While removing the cabin filter, 3 nuts, 6-star torque screw and trim piece take careful measures not to lose any pieces! Disconnect the electrical cords. Wipe the area around the reservoir clean to ensure no contaminants fall into it, also use plastic bag as sheeting to cover the engine bay. Remember to not exceed 20 PSI at any time during flow through bleeding. Nonetheless the system needs to be flushed completely off the old fluid.

Tires on top condition are integral part of car maintenance and worth optimum concern; it is mandatory to replace a tire in case of centre tread or shoulder wear which is cause by deviation in actual inflation of tire tubes. Scuffing and cupping calls for correcting faulty wheel bearings and loose parts to restore the tire balance.  A damaged springs or shock absorbers are to be set right as wheel alignment and tire balance enhance the performance of tires.

Our mother nature provides us everything for our existence, so it becomes our prime duty to take part in saving it from exploitation. We keep talking and hearing about recycling and reusing things to reduce the damage they are causing to environment. With vigorous manufacturing of vehicles, we don’t realise that every year millions of cars reach limit of their usability. We may find that old car a piece of garbage, but same old car, when recycled can become useful. Recycling of old cars provides you and the environment numerous benefits.

As the cars are made of metals like aluminum and steel, thus, when we recycle old cars the extracted metal can be used again in future and it will save us from extracting metal from their ores. When we are extracting metals from their respective ores, a large amount of coal is wasted in refining metal ore into the usable form. Hence recycling of old cars act as a great alternative. Every year by recycling of 1 ton of steel, it would save about half a ton of coal. We may not know, but 75% of every old cars can be recycled. While reducing extraction of metal we also save limestone wastage that goes for mining purpose.

Nowadays mankind is becoming so selfish that if this extraction of minerals continues then there won’t be any natural resources left for our future generation. In recycling old cars, the hazardous fluids present in the vehicle are recycled so that these fluids wouldn’t seep into the ground water. In this process of car recycling, we save precious minerals, energy, time and most of all we save money. As it is a lot easier to melt and remould metal instead of extracting it from ores, sending it to a refinery and wasting huge amount of energy in creating steel. Again we may use this remoulded steel to make new vehicles.

There’s a lot more your old car can return to nature by recycling You must be knowing that most of the harmful gases released in air are result of coal-burning plants and millions of vehicles on street burning diesel and petrol. Only minimal changes, like recycling one old car would suddenly reduce the amount of these gases, just imagine what would be the impact if all cars that are useless gets recycled.

We are all familiar with the famous 3 “R” slogan which stands for Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. It brings back the importance of facts like reduction in usage of non-sustainable materials and reusing them is as necessary as recycling. At times, in the worst accidents, there are certain parts of a car which survive and can be used again. Thus, if you decide to sell your broken old car for recycling purpose you not only get money out of it but you also contribute to save the environment and towards sustainable development. Even though, we have discussed many great advantages of recycling old cars, but you never know there may be more benefits associated with it. How would you come to know about those unknown benefits?
