Iâ€™m in the market for a new ride and was looking for some opinions online. I promtly pointed my browser to Google and came accross carseek.com.
The domain name fitted the bill and I logged onto the site. What I found was a clean designed website based mostly in text with some graphics to house the content. Being mostly texted based this resulted in a quick loading time which was pleasing. At first glance you can easily navigate to what your looking for with three graphic buttons calling for your attention on the top right of the site â€“ reviews, buy a car and finance. On the left a box houses the quick car seach function which you can use to find a quote for exacly what set of wheels your looking for. That prety much summed up what I was looking for at that point â€“ What car to buy, how I will finance it and how I will find it. Carseek was off to a good start. Staying on the index I scrolled down to find the latest car reviews featuring cars such as the 2008 Ford Mustang or the latest Ford F-250. This provided some tasty reading materiaal while I tried to find my car of choice.
Using the top left car quote feature I selected in the drop down list â€œAudiâ€ and immediatly the lower drop down listed all the available Audi models. Not a page refresh in sight. Rocking. I proceeded to surf to the Audi A3 page (a car in my price range) and was presented with a form to fill in to get my quote and some stats on the A3. No need to call the dealer they contact you!! With that out of the way and basically done with what I was looking for online. I prompted to stay on the carseek site surfing through the car reviews section which has thousands of entries just in case you havenâ€™t made up your mind to which car you want. I also popped in to the articles section which presented articles of other automotive topics such as road rage and child safety. Carseek.com turned out to be a very fast responding informative website giving me just what I wanted and more in a clean design to ensure fast loading. Carseek has been bookmarked and I think you should to.

Weâ€™ve done it again! Car blog brings you exclusive spy photos of an undisguised next generation Toyota Pick-Up and it is definitely a stunner. Caught by spy photographers somewhere between the Blue and White Niles in eastern Sudan, Africa, the yet unnamed Pick-Up is powered by an innovative, eco-friendly animal-train thatâ€™ll subsequently replace Toyota & Lexus hybrid powertrains in the very near future. A Toyota representative revealed to Car blog in an off-the-cd conversation that the Japanese automaker has been reviewing two different types of animal-trains but declined to say what the second one was. Stay tuned for more info on this breaking story.
If you have been wondering why there have been so few events at Wesbank Raceway, the answer has arrived. As of January 2008, Wesbank Raceway will be no more. The track was taken for a mouth watering R130 million by Pangbourne Properties who will be the land developers of the light industrial park that will replace the super motorsport complex.
It will be a big chunk out of the growth of motorsport in South Africa. Wesbank has hosted many of the countries biggest events including the likes of Ultimate Street Car, the Finals of the National Drag Racing Championship and the countries largest Illegal 2 Legal drag racing on wednesday nights.
For those of you who have not visited Wesbank or even just being apart of the 5000 odd crowd who attend the wednesday night racing, I advise you to do so before you loose the opportunity to.
Over the next few months I will fill a topic on the z00pedup forum with pictures and memories we have had at Wesbank over the years.
A driver from a distance will see a police car hiding behing a billboard, as the police typically do in Turkey/ thus the driver instinctively slow down or make sure that they are going at the legal speed limit. When they come closer they are able to read the billboard text:
Pay your traffic tickets on time without waiting in line – isbank.com.tr
However just as they pass the billboard they will realize that there really isnâ€™t a police car hiding there. That actually is a full size reproduction of a police car which is a part of the billboard.

It could have been any of us hacks, behind the wheel of an unfamiliar car on a picturesque but potentially treacherous road, possibly poking at the limits of adhesion so we might return a colorful review that conveys the experience poignantly. But it was French automotive journalist Michel Barelli who was killed this past weekend when the 2007 Opel GT he was driving went out of control on a mountain road and plummeted down an embankment, the AP reports. Barelli, a writer for the French daily newspaper Nice-Matin, was reportedly on a press drive for the car, the European version of the Saturn Sky, when the accident occurred, approximately 40 miles east of San Diego. Condolences from all Jalopniks, everywhere. â€“ Mike Spinelli
