Vintage cars are one of the true pleasures in life – these beautiful vehicles are a great joy to drive, talk about and work on. Unfortunately sometimes it is not appropriate to drive them from one place to another – this can be due to inclement weather, bad road conditions or an incomplete car. In these circumstances car trailers are the only way transport them.
Car trailers are incredibly secure and safe means of transporting your beloved car, yet you will need to be careful when loading it on. Vintage cars can be incredibly fragile, especially if they are not fully assembled. A good starting point is to rent a well-maintained trailer with working lights and a good paint job – you don’t want to entrust your vehicle to a shoddy trailer which might have loose parts waiting to cause scratches. If you have a convertible it is also important to protect your car’s interior by putting the roof up or covering it with a suitable cover that won’t come off on the highway.
Thankfully, you don’t need to go out and buy yourself a trailer just to transport your car – this is particularly good for people who only need to do this one time. You can hire one of these from a company, or look to the expanding world of online rentals. Indeed, many automotive items like car and box trailers can be found affordably and easily online. Always be sure to inspect your rental carefully for any mechanical faults before setting off.
If you are lucky enough to own a vintage car you will hopefully never have a need to transport it. However, if for some reason you need to move it, you can turn to car trailers to help you get it there in one piece. This is quite easy to do and, thanks to rentals, it won’t cost you a fortune.

Just look at this beauty of 1947 year!
As you know pretty well till now Japan has been second largest automobile market in the world. An automotive and electronic industries are the most prominent industries, the base of the Japanese economy. Such autos as Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Mitsubishi and Mazda have recommended themselves in the world as quality and trustworthy ones.
But now, in the light of Japan’s tragedy that is unfortunately still continuing it’s becoming also obviously that the earthquake has affected on all exports, including cars and probably customers will get the deficit of automotives and electronic components very soon. Japan’s top three auto makers, Toyota, Honda and Nissan, have closed already their plants in the quake-hit areas in Japan.
It’s pity becouse I’ve loved Nissan Micra which is both beautiful as economic auto. Nissan Micra comes in a single engine variant – 1.2 litre petrol with 3 in-line cylinders. The powerful engine can churn out a maximum power of 75 bhp @ 6000 RPM and will give you a maximum torque of 104 Nm @ 4000 RPM. Paired with the engine is a five speed manual transmission.
Micra boasts of optimum performance, ride and handling combined with agility and refinement.Mounted on the Nissan’s new signature V-platform, the suspension minimizes intrusion and takes on well to US or European roads. The suspension set up comprises of McPherson Strut at the front and torsion beam at the rear. The cute looking hatchback also offers a great fuel economy of 18.06 kmpl.
However, we have to hope and many analysts believe that the impact of Japan’s quake would not last long on the global market. A Moody’s economist even thinks that Japan’s reconstruction efforts after the earthquake could boost global trade.
