Automatic cars are an entirely different beast compared to manual cars. While a manual car has a stick that the driver uses to shift gears, an automatic car has a shifter knob (or simply, a shifter) that is used to select the desired gear. The shift knob in an automatic car typically has three positions: Park, Drive, and Reverse. In addition, there may be a position for Low gears (if the car is equipped with low gears), as well as a Neutral position. Shift knobs can come in a variety of different materials, such as plastic, metal, wood, or even glass. Some are even decorated with jewels or...

It really depends on a few factors, such as the type of car you have, the type of tires you have, and the type of rims you want to purchase. If you have a sedan or coupe, chances are that the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) tire size will work with aftermarket rims. However, it's always best to consult your car's owner's manual or the rim manufacturer to be sure. If you have an SUV or truck, you may need to purchase new...

Many people would say that buying a classic car today represents one of those things that sounds better in theory than it looks like in practice.   In other words, you might think you want to buy a secondhand classic or antique car without thinking through some of the challenges of keeping one of these vehicles around (like classic car insurance, for example.)   On the other hand, these cars can be an excellent investment and carry their value. If you are a real gearhead, fixing up and restoring one of these beauties can be a rewarding experience.   With that in mind, here are...

Tire issues are the cause of over 15,000 accidents in the UK every year. Although tire safety may seem like an insignificant problem, unsafe tires can actually cause a lot of damage. And although these issues are fixed easily, a large part of the reason why they aren’t fixed is because many people still remain clueless as of how to spot tire problems. As a result, they neglect checking their tires and instead ignore the problem. Firstly, it is important to note that tire problems can affect all tire types and so anyone who owns a vehicle will need to practice tire safety. There are many...

Humankind has always been fascinated by speed. In history, people collected Thoroughbred and Arabian horses to show how fast they could get from one place to another. When Henry Ford made the Model T in America, people were fascinated at how fast these mechanized vehicles were compared to horse-drawn carriages. From that time forward, inventors made lighter and faster cars. Today we have the Devel Sixteen, the world's current fastest car with a top speed of 347 mph, the SSC Tuatara with a top speed of 331mph, and the Hennessey Venom F5 with a top speed of 301 mph, to name a few. All these...

The market for classic cars continues to grow. Reports state that the industry was valued at about $1.24 billion (£921 million as of this writing) for 2021, but is expected to climb to $1.65 billion (£1.23 billion) by 2023.
