Aston Martin – What A Beauty!

Of all charming sports cars and elegance vehicles, the Aston Martin is perhaps the best item of how an automobile maker can mix style, satisfaction and glamour into on automobile. Aston Martin has been able to do that successfully since it’s inception back in 1913. Early on it was clear that Aston Martin wanted to build fast cars and they were heavily involved in the early days of automobile racing.

Business has been challenging for Aston Martin over the years as they have had to overcome many obstacles that stood in the way of their success. Back on in the life of the group it was WWI that posed the greatest problem for Aston Martin, but when that was past, it was back to business. After going ruined in 1924 the corporation was purchased and continued on for modestly one more year before going bankrupt yet a second time!

Those early years were difficult for Aston Martin, but things were about to change. In 1947 the company was bought by a successful businessman named David Brown. It was during this time that the popular “DB” naming system started, named after David Brown. The first car to be produced under his leadership was the DB1, which was built from 1948-1950. At least 15 of these limited cars were ever produced previous the conception was replaced by the DB2.

The Chevrolet Corvette, a Sports car legend and an automobile Classic for ever, has somehow survived inflated insurance rates; all types of inane and meaningless safety legislation and engine pollution add ons. The Chevrolet Corvette has been universally accepted as the measure of a high-performance sports auto. Vehicles are cyclical, new model of vehicles appear and vanish and yet the Corvette lives on. No auto has been able to cover as many aspects of the hi-performance sport as the Corvette. The flexibility of this superb car has appealed to all age groups and has kept the ownership of a Corvette, a most prestigious thing.

The Corvette has gone through many changes in its lifetime, including every custom and hot rod trend going. It is a miracle the Corvette has remained a true high performance sports automobile and did not mature into a two plus two sedan as did Ford’s Thunderbird. The Corvette was in the on the beginnings of the fast car era. In the mid 50’s folk wanted fast cars, and by 1957 the Corvette was leading the pack. Hot rodding owes a giant debt to the Corvette; it was in charge of just about all higher performance parts ever to come from Chevrolet. 4 speed transmissions, dual quad intake manifolds and hot solid lifter camshafts.

Truck Resources and Sports Car

Sports cars in general, are mostly about style and performance. This is why these types of cars lure so many drivers in the market. Sports cars are head turners and usually look best in the color red. Sports cars have power placed to its pavement across its rear wheels or on all of the four wheels. The cars are principally constructed for the driver, although there are a few have rear seats.

The lure of sports cars demonstrate, as surveys show, that nearly sixty percent of young car drivers between the ages of seventeen and twenty, select a car based on appearance with little consideration on its affordability. Only seven percent base their selection on the cost of insurance cost and/or running condition and thirty percent base their selection solely on appearance. While views greatly vary with regards to the sports car precise definition, the majority of sports cars come with two doors, two seats and are designed for tremendous acceleration, high speed, and of course, attractiveness.

Their attractive looks are that lure car drivers and enthusiasts, second only to the performance, surveys said. Sports cars do not have much room capacity or may not be reasonable or economical. Passenger space and fuel cost-effectiveness are not generally the main considerations of an individual who is in the showroom ready to purchase an image-boosting vehicle.

Are you a Mini Man or a Sports Car Fan?

 Government Car Auctions are a great place to find a Mini Cooper or a used sports car for a fraction of the cost by bidding on seized vehicles. They are often selling Mercedes, BMW’s, Bentley’s, Mini Coopers, Porsches and many other high dollar sports cars to the highest bidder, and sometimes, there are very few bidders for these higher dollar cars. 


For example, earlier this afternoon, a 2004 Bentley Continental, with 32,000 miles in excellent condition inside and out was listed.  Bidding expires in a couple days, at a bidding deposit of $10,000 and no bids had been offered on it, AT ALL, after being listed for bid for almost three weeks.  So few people realize that this is a great way to pick-up that dream sports car they would never be able to afford otherwise, they don’t even know where to look for it.


Here are a few interesting facts about Government Car Auctions:
