Motor Trade Rundown

It is not just cars that must be insured on British roads, every type of motor vehicle is required by law, to have at least third party insurance.

If you are thinking of buying a new car in the closing months of 2010 you may wish to consider the noticeable motor industry movements that have occurred year to date as well as the associated motor trade insurance.

A good place to start your analysis is always to take a look at Motor Trader; arguably the motor trade bible, which reported earlier in the year that Ford had amplified prices to a higher than expected, or desired level back in 2009. This information was reported by Glasss Guide. Managing Editor for Glasss Guide, Adrian Rushmore, went on to state Ford arguably went too far by implementing four rounds of rises, equivalent to an average 14 per cent hike across all of its model ranges.

Having considered this, Ford sales do not appear to have been adversely effected by the 14% price increase this year as the quantifiable level of Fiestas roaming our roads appears to have increased if anything.

You may want to take into consideration the fact that consumer costs will also see a rise in the not so distant future thanks to a new showroom tax that commenced at the start of the year.

As is often the case, the people bearing the costs of this will be the motorists and the level of charge is calculated primarily on the individual vehicles CO2 emissions.

As a general rule of thumb; the lower the CO2 emissions, the lower the single tax payment will be.

Considering a case study of this a car which is deemed to emit lower than 130g CO2 per kilometre will be totally exempt from vehicle excise tax for year one of new ownership.

In addition to this, any car that omits over 255g CO2 per kilometre in a single year will incur an additional charge of approximately 1k for year one of new ownership. Subsequent years rates will revert back to standard charges (which are greatly lower than the new first year charge).

Super Ball Piston Motor; Potentially Fuel-Less and Pollution Free

Some concepts reviewed at the Online Think Tank are way out there, yet some indeed have merit. Take for instance a recent brilliant idea, which Richard Walker came up with; A Super Ball Piston Motor that would infact be Fuel-Less and Pollution Free.

Worried about Global Warming? Don’t be, all be right back after these messages to explain the whole thing. Thank you for listening and Yes, I like the super ball piston idea, I can imagine it perfectly actually. Sounds very cool. The Super Balls will be the pistons, and once started they will continue to bounce inside, probably fired by air is that correct?

“Yes, this is one way the system can fire itself up”

Now in your super ball piston, as I understand the super ball it gets its elastiticity from sending its energy all the way thru, like a golf ball elongates when you hit it? But if you put a crankshaft thru the center, the balls elastic energy would hit the center where the crank shaft was. So instead the crank shaft would have to attach to the edge of the ball on each side or something.

“Indeed, this is one possibility and there are others of course, the possibilities are endless”

Well, I guess it would depend on how many cylinders, it could operate as one. Could just be two and then the cam shaft or crank shaft would attach on the side of the super balls and run between them. If they operated together with a bar between then the crack shaft could be on the bar or the bar itself right?

Or with a one cylinder super ball model the camshaft could be a “U” like bicycle forks where the cylinder was in the center. All this is in fact possible isn’t it Mr. Walker?

“Indeed it is and the sooner we build these pollution free motors the better, as the applications for such a motor are truly endless”

I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
