Thomas Flyer Restored, Harrah’s Collection 1964

I am the owner of several old Antique Automobile Magazines. As I was searching through August 1964, I discovered this interesting article about the famous Thomas Flyer where its restoration was completed for the Harrah’s Automobile Collection.

The article also explains Bill Harrah’s love for classic cars and his beginnings to becoming a collector. I had the privilege of visiting the original Harrah collection in the mid to late 1970’s off of Glendale Ave. in Sparks, Nevada. It would take you days to complete the tour.

It is now named the National Automobile Collection, and is much smaller than in its prime, but still worth stepping back in time and hear about a man who loved collection and restoring classic cars.

Technology has hit the world of license plates

Teresa Aquila’s January article in the Happy Herald Newspaper

For years many states have allowed inmates to produce license plates while learning a trade. That may soon come to an end as we know it. Digital license plates were introduced and rolled out in California in 2018. Since then, the illuminated plates have gained miles and popularity.

A plating company called Reviver has been working on the idea of digital license plates since 2009, but like any new idea, it takes time to get customers and states to approve the change. Currently, there are only two states that have authorized the digital plates, with Michigan to join the craze by the second quarter of 2021.

The plate number and messages belong to the state, you own the plate. There is an added cost. The cost for the digital plate, a one-time fee, or a monthly charge, plus the cost of registration. They will soon be integrated into automobiles. Happy Motoring.

How to Eliminate Crimes of Opportunity for Car Thieves

Do I Really Need Auto Repair Insurance?

  Owning a car offers us freedom and the ability to be very mobile. Along with owning that vehicle, comes a responsibility for repairs and maintenance. In order to get those wheels turning on the road, one must purchase automotive insurance. What about auto repair insurance?              

One of the big advantages of having the right auto repair insurance policy is that it covers the total cost of some major repairs. When customers are paying out of their pocket, some mechanic shops have no problem charging endless amounts of money for their services. With the right auto repair insurance, the insurance company not only picks up the tab, but it also regulates the costs and lets a customer or policyholders know if the mechanic’s charge is excessive.

Do You Need Bumper to Bumper?
Bumper to bumper car insurance means that most of the components needed to operate your vehicle safely are included in the policy. This includes, but is not limited to, the engine, drive train, transmission, exhaust, brakes, and electrical components. However, things like body repair, broken lights, windows, and interior fixes are not covered. Bumper to bumper coverage will keep you from having to spend large amounts of money for repairs.

When you purchase a bumper to bumper auto repair insurance policy, always pay attention to the fine print. This usually means hidden fees, penalties, and limited coverage. One example is restrictions on what is paid to the service center. If they charge $75 per hour for labor, some policies only pay out $55 per hour. Check to make sure that you are aware of these limits and restrictions before they happen.

        Auto repair insurance policies are “À la carte,” in that a driver can purchase an insurance policy for specific parts or systems, from the engine and transmission to different auto parts systems, such as an electrical system or brake system. A customized auto repair insurance policy can cover just what the driver is worried about, providing precise, effective coverage for specific mechanical breakdown situations.

Despite the benefits of car repair insurance, a huge number of drivers prefer to take their chances without it. Why? Here are a few reasons why car repair insurance is not a universally applauded product:

Partial coverage

Car repair insurance is customizable. That is, there are different options for insuring the transmission, the engine, the fuel system and all other kinds of parts. The problem is that these add up. Drivers generally don’t know which part of their car is going to break first, nor can they really predict which parts of the car will be most troublesome over its lifetime. That’s one problem with signing up for car repair insurance that only covers certain parts systems. The insurance burden.

Drivers already pay a good bit of insurance, just to get a car on the street. Since today’s basic liability insurance doesn’t cover at-fault damages, many drivers go with comprehensive insurance, which incurs additional costs. Many drivers are happy just to get all of the required insurance for dealing with the costs of a wreck or collision. Car repair insurance puts even more of an insurance burden on the driver’s wallet.

Claims handling.
Those who routinely deal with any kind of insurance know the game that insurers often play: an insurer will enthusiastically endorse an insurance product, and sign up new customers. Where it gets tricky is when the insurer is asked to actually pay a claim. Insurance buyers know that fine print can “void” much of the insurer’s obligation. In the minds of many drivers, there’s no point in paying for theoretical breakdown situations, only to find that in the rare chance that they do occur, some clause in the policy lets the insurer off the hook.

The Waiting Game.
When insurers do payout, it may take months for the payment to reach the customer. That’s the time that a driver may not have to balance his or her checkbook against the financial liability of the vehicle breakdown. Again, a large number of drivers choose instead to keep money on hand for use in the event of a parts malfunction or breakdown of the car or truck they depend on for daily transportation. Happy Motoring.

Nissan Helps Make The Putt Every Time

When you hear the name Nissan, you quickly think of automobiles. But did
you know that Nissan is also known for its technology? Nissan’s
ProPILOT 2.0, the driver assistance technology, is about to debut in
September, allowing golfers to put their putting nerves aside.

The ProPILOT 2.0 was designed to work with the vehicle’s navigation system. The ProPILOT golf ball can now assist golfers to sink a putt every time, helping even novice golfers to perform like the pros.

ProPILOT golf ball is guided by an overhead camera, detecting the position of the ball and cup. The ball’s monitoring system calculates the best route based on the direction of the ball, and adjusts its direction to help make a perfect putt. Golf will never be the same. Happy Motoring
