One of the most classic American sports cars is the Chevrolet Corvette, which was first introduced in 1953. It was the first completely American sports car built by an American car company, which is why it is often referred to as "America's Sports Car".
Today, Corvettes are manufactured in the city of Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they are created with great care. Though the main complaint with the car was its handling, Corvettes' handling has been continually improved to be on a par with popular European sports cars. However, they still remain relatively affordable, which is perhaps another one of the reasons why they continue to be such popular sports cars.
Corvettes are also created to be far simpler than the technical sports cars seen in Europe, which is one of the reasons they are cheaper. Due to their simplicity, Corvettes tend to be smaller and weigh less than sports cars manufactured abroad. The famous car designer Harley Earl was the person who originally designed the beloved Chevrolet sports car. He noticed that soldiers after the Second World War were bringing back European sports cars and that America didn't really have one. At the 1953 Motorama car show, the Corvette that Earl designed was finally unveiled to the shocked public.
The body of the car was originally made with fiberglass, which was brand new at the time. The performance of the car was similar to other Chevrolets produced at the time, but when Chevrolet released it with the first V8 engine in 1955, it became more powerful and therefore quite popular.

With gas prices on the rise almost every single day now, you must be looking for an alternative. Well now there is one, build a car that runs with water. I did it as an alternative to the high price of fuel and have gotten amazing results.
I know what you are thinking, yet another gadget or money grabbing gimmick. Trust me this is not at all. I know that the name makes people think that you only run you car with water, which actually water is integrated with your fuel in small quantities to achieve the increases in gas mileage of your vehicle - and it will definitely improve your gas mileage.
I know this because I learned how to build a car that runs with water, it improved my mileage by 48%, so thats a $45 in fuel savings each week. It took me about a day and a half to complete the whole process, that time was spent going to my local hardware store and getting all the parts and installing the system. You don't need any real mechanical skills either, cause the plans where so simple to read and follow.
It has been about 8 weeks sense I installed the system and the results where way above expectations. The investment that I put into it paid for it's self after the first 6 weeks. Now I am not as ticked at the price of rising fuel as much as I used to be, which is a big life saver when you travel an hour each way to work each and everyday.

The 2010 Mazda 3 is no stranger to the automotive press with dozens of spy shots popping up over the past few months and speculative renderings coming from all around the world. Because the Mazda 3 is Mazda's top selling vehicle in the U.S. it's not hard to see why it is drawing in so much excitement surrounding its unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The redesign couldn't come up at a better time for Mazda when, even in the midst of a languishing economy, the Mazda 3 continues to be a hot seller among the ultra competitive compact car segment against the likes of the newly revised Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Although nothing is set in stone (read: confirmed by Mazda) yet we have created a list of what to expect when the Mazda 3 is officially unveiled by Mazda: First, the current 2.3 liter motor will be swapped out in favor of Mazda's 2.5 liter currently in the 2009 Mazda6. This will bring power up to around 170 hp, from the current 150-156 hp of the Mazda 3 s-line and will offer both a six speed manual transmission and a five speed sport automatic transmission. The Mazda 3 i-line is expected to carryover its 2.0 liter engine and transmission options.
