The beautiful color illustrations in the Adverts are much more attractive to me than the color photo’s which eventually replaced them. Many of the color advertisements show the cars in actual settings of the period, helping to bring the 1920’s period back to life for modern readers by displaying cars in their original surroundings. If you weren’t there, this is the next best thing!

Once the warranty period expires, there does not seem to be much effort to keep the customer coming back for retail repairs. After all, during the season,” the shop is booked for two weeks or longer on any given day, so why worry about retail repair work?

Automotive Telediagnostics is a multidisciplinary field, composed of Telematics and Diagnostics. It refers to the ability to read, correlate, analyze and transmit real-time information regarding vehicles, its mechanical status, location, safety and other relevant data. I echo your sentiment! When traveling with my husband, we tested a mechanic before we decided to use their services. We determined what our dialogue would be, then I went in first. After getting the estimate, we would leave, then come back later and he would go in. If the answers were the same, we knew we could trust the mechanic!

Major automotive advances of the twenties included four-wheel brakes, safety glass for windows, and pneumatic air-filled tires – to mention just a few. Eighty years later it is easy to take for granted the major advances that took place in automobile engineering during the 1920’s, as these are now everyday features on today’s vehicles. However, many modern day car manufacturers are revisiting and implementing design and engineering features that were first invented and used on 1920’s cars – hybrid petrol-electric engine systems are just one example! I use an old Toshiba netbook with Linux for taking to class and it runs octave(MATLAB) fine for 90% or more of the work you do. At home I have a Dell desktop that was only $400 and it runs everything I need like a champ; MATLAB, MathCAD, Texas Instruments software, Minitab, and whatever else I need. Anything you need to run that will use tons of memory will have a software license that cost more than your ‘gaming ‘ computer and you will need to use it in the computer lab. Simulation software like Aspen or ChemCAD or some of the FEA software.
