The Volkswagen Beetle. Live below your means.

Volkswagen Beetle. Live below your means. 
If you'd like to get around the high cost of living, we have a suggestion: Cut down on the high cost of getting around. And buy a Volkswagen. Its only $17995. That's around $1200 leSs than the average amount paid for a new can today. (Leave it in the bank. More's coming.) 
A VW saves you hundreds of dollars on up-keep over the years. It takes pints, not quarts, of oil. Not one iota of anti-freeze. And it gets about 27 miles to the gallon. The average can rthirsty devil that it is) only gets 14. So the more you drive, the more you save. 
And chances are, you'll drive it for years and years. (Since we never change the style, a VW never goes out of style.) Of course, a VW's not much to look at. So a lot of people buy a big flashy can just to save face. Try putting that in the bank.

O Actros GigaSpace em escala 1:18 é o caminhão perfeito para transportar suas miniaturas de carros

Actros GigaSpace 1:18 Truck
Quando se trata de expor na estante uma coleção de miniaturas de carros, a criatividade é fundamental para causar uma grande impressão. A Mercedes-Benz deu uma ótima ideia para os aficionados. Trata-se do caminhão Actros GigaSpace, na escala 1:18, e uma carreta estilo "cegonha".

Com ele, é possível expor algumas de suas miniaturas de carros em sua estante. O caminhão pesa 10 kg e mede 1,13 m de comprimento. Esta é a primeira vez que a Mercedes-Benz oferece um caminhão e carreta na escala 1:18.

Why so many Volkswagens live to be 100,000.

Why so many Volkswagens live to be 100,000. 
The Volkswagen isn't the kind of a car you trade in after a year or two. It's designed and built for keeps. The piston speed in a Volkswagen is slower than it is in many other cars. That means less wear. Engine friction and stress are so low that the VW's cruising speed is the same as top speed! 
Continuity in making the same basic model year after year has led to Volkswagen's qual-ity of assembly—the kind that a $5,000 car would be proud of; to say nothing of a can that sells for $1,585.* Just to give you an idea: A Volkswagen is so airtight, it's a good practice to open the window before you slam the door. Even after 
you've had it for several years. So. If you own a '61 or '62 VW that you've taken good care of, why would you want to trade it in for a '66—which looks just like it? You wouldn't. You'd keep it, and have the pleasure of seeing 99,999 on your VW's odometer turn to 00000.

Placa de trânsito cai e atinge SUV em rodovia australiana

Real-Life Final Destination: SUV Crushed By Overhead Traffic Sign
Uma mulher de 53 anos dirigia seu SUV em Melbourne, Austrália, quando uma placa de trânsito, instalada no pórtico de uma rodovia, caiu no exato momento em que o veículo passava por baixo da barra de sustentação da mesma.

O impacto da queda destruiu a parte frontal e o teto do SUV, amassando o veículo. Felizmente, a estrutura de proteção contra impactos trabalhou perfeitamente, e a motorista sofreu apenas ferimentos leves nas mãos e no pescoço.
