Dealer’s Guide to the Used Car Rule

Introduction

Most car dealers who sell used vehicles must comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC’s) Used Car Rule. In fact, car dealers who sell, or offer for sale, more than five used vehicles in a 12-month period must comply with the Rule. Banks and financial institutions are exempt from the Rule, as are businesses that sell vehicles to their employees, and lessors who sell a leased vehicle to a lessee, an employee of the lessee, or a buyer found by the lessee.

The Used Car Rule applies in all states except Maine and Wisconsin. These two states are exempt because they have similar regulations that require dealers to post disclosures on used vehicles. The Rule applies in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa.

This booklet defines the Rule’s requirements, explains how to prepare and display the Buyers Guide, and offers a

American Vintage Bicycles

American Vintage Bicycles

Collecting American Vintage bicycles is a hobby many people don’t understand until they’re deeply immerged within their newly-forming obsession. Even those who love bicycles and bicycling, as I do, don’t know much about the world of classic bicycles. It seems we’re too busy concentrating on the newest or latest bicycling fads, equipment, and technology.

After starting my first website about Bicycles and Bicycling, I’ve discovered a whole new world of cycling with vintage and old bicycles. After bidding on my first vintage bike on eBay, this beautiful Elgin bicycle, I was hooked.



Hybrid vehicle – hybrid cars and trucks, fuel cell, clean fuel’s

Hybrid vehicle
The next step in the evolution of the Automobile!

Quantum Aggressor AMV

There is no doubt that Hybrid vehicle propulsion technology will be the next big thing in the automobile and truck industry.

I wrote this in February 2005 and now hybrid cars are not only the next big thing in automobiles they are the big thing!

Hybrid vehicles and hybrid cars have fascinated me since I first learned of Dr Ferdinand Porsche’s hybrid car, built in 1899 by Jacob Lohner & Co. The so called Lohner-Porsche.

Petrol Electric Race car

This was in 1984 and I was working on my BS thesis in Mechanical Engineering. My thesis was on a conceptual design of a light off-road utility vehicle, and I was investigating possible propulsion systems.

I started thinking what had happened to hybrid technology as I saw no petrol-electric cars around. And this was 84-85 years after Dr. Ferdinand Porsche so aptly demonstrated and

Origin and meaning of bicycle by Online Etymology Dictionary

1868, from bi- “two” + a Latinized form of Greek kyklos “circle, wheel” (see cycle (n.)), on the pattern of tricycle; both the word and the vehicle superseding earlier velocipede.

The English word is said in some dictionaries to be probably not from French, but the 1868 citations are in a French context: The velocipedes, about which the Parisians have run mad at the present moment, are of various kinds. … The two wheel velocipedes, the bicycles as they are styled, are intended for the male sex only, and are by far the swiftest machines. [“Supplement to the Courant,” Hartford, Conn., Dec. 16, 1868]. Pierre Lallement, employee of a French carriage works, improved Macmillan’s 1839 pedal velocipede in 1865 and took the invention to America. See also pennyfarthing. As a verb, from 1869.

The velocipede of 1869 was worked by treadles operating cranks on the axle oi the front wheel.

The shapely Audi A6 midsize sedan was redesigned for 2019, and most of the big gains come in less visible ways. Yes, the shape’s been subtly tweaked, but more important are its stiffer chassis and lighter body, which improves the 2019 A6’s ride and handling. 

Likewise, its former supercharged 3.0-liter V6 has been replaced by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that makes the same horsepower, but has much more torque that comes on at lower rpm and peaks later. It also uses a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that can power accessories such as heat and air conditioning when the car is stopped, but not when it’s shut off. 

The new engine makes 335 horsepower and 369
