Electric Cars

If you know Electric Cars, than Tesla is probably what comes to your mind. Tesla is a groundbreaking car company that was one of the first to truly make and sell electric cars. An electric car doesn't use gas, and are much better for the environment, they don’t even have a exhaust pipe. Electric cars make less noise, are more energy efficient, save you money, and have zero emissions. They're the obvious choice of cars, and it’s curious that all cars aren’t electric, why haven't other people tried to make this before? Well they have, plenty of people have tried to make electric cars before, but often, big gas companies will pay off or destroy that investor. Tesla was just the first one who really stuck to his idea and had enough money to do it. Now, the electric car is extremely popular, and in just one quarter of selling, Tesla sold over 14,820 cars. People are ordering Tesla's before they've even seen the car! Everyone is dying to get their hands on the obvious choice of car, it’s saving the environment, saving you money, and it’s revolutionizing the car making industry! After seeing the Tesla take off, other big companies want to get in the electric car, and more brands are chipping in. Volkswagen is even promising an electric car for the future after revealing some intriguing pictures. Electric cars are the future, and it's about time they're finally here.

Old School VS New School Cars

By: Mikayla Dischner and Cherice Beard

Quick on its feet and fun to toss around, the Bolt EV is an affordable and enjoyable electric car worth waiting for. A 200-hp electric motor draws power from a floor-mounted battery pack and provides a range of 200 miles per charge. The high-tech cabin has a 10.2-inch touchscreen and a smaller, driver-facing 8.0-inch digital gauge cluster. Onboard Wi-Fi, 4G LTE internet connectivity, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto will likely appear on the spec sheet.

  • They are more unique- Through modern technology and increased demand for new cars in all price brackets, the cars are plentiful and common place. Even an exotica car like a Rolls Royce can be rather common in an environment such as Beverly Hills California. When is the last time you have seen a 1922 Harvester International at your local drive-in? How many have the pleasure of driving a fully restored 1970 Chevrolet C-10 truck? If you are looking for a unique vehicle, older cars and trucks are better than newer cars and trucks for there are less of them in the market. City Classic Cars has a 1970 that is certainly one of a kind.

  • They are Appreciating Assets not decreasing liabilities- A car is a necessity in many American cities especially the large land mass of Texas. The last report from the NADA says there are over 17, 540 franchised automobile dealerships in the USA. So what’s the problem? The problem is the average new car decreases value the moment you drive it off the lot. Furthermore, when is the last time you purchase a new vehicle off the showroom floor that had positive market equity? My answer is never. With older classic vehicles ( those older than 25 years of age as defined in Texas) rarely lose value the moment you drive them off the lot- albeit $10… and more so, it is a regular occurrence to purchase a classic car with equity. A classic vehicle is an appreciating asset which makes older cars and trucks better than newer cars and trucks. City Classic Cars has a 1970 Chevrolet C-10 for sale at $16, 500 that is

  • valued near the $19, 000 mark

They are more appealing - This is purely an opinion that has not been tested in the lab, but we at City Classic Cars believe older cars and trucks are far sexier than newer cars and trucks. This video proves that fact! City Classic Cars has a 1970 C-10 that roars this as truth.

Hillary Clinton Called Sick

There have been many rumors of Hillary Clinton being sick with some disease. This worries the public about making her president, because of the possibility of death during her run. After a news anchor mistakenly said that she had died, which is obviously not true, it definitely got the public going. Not only are people worried that Hillary is sick, but the fact that she tried to hide her sickness from everyone brings a whole new level of drama to the table. Hillary has a disadvantage though, from her email dilemma. Hillary has to be very honest with everything now to make sure the public knows she's not keeping any more secrets. This is most likely why, her keeping her “sickness” away from the public was such a big deal. From her point of view though, I wouldn't want to worry the public about some big disease anyways, even if it’s some small thing, you don't wanna be blunt about it. That would only bring more disadvantages to her campaign. Hillary has amazing doctors, and she’s had them almost her whole life. If Hillary was sick, it probably wouldn't last for long, and she already has a very healthy lifestyle. Franklin D. Roosevelt had polio during his presidency but he kept it hidden from the public not to worry them. Hillary can't do that, but it just goes to show on how it is possible to be president and sick. Hillary's “disease” may not be such a big deal after all. If you're anxious to know by now, it was recently and officially said, that Hillary is not dead, and simply has pneumonia. She should be fine and back to her normal health soon, but the public is still on their feet from the whole situation. Keep in touch with Hillary Clinton’s campaign for more information about her.
