I finally achieved my dream of buying some property that has some great trees on it. One section of the lot is flat with no vegetation growing there. That area is where my brother, who is a builder, will build my house. He told me that tree removal for Queens NY property owners is a good idea, and that I will have some more space for my kids to play in if more of the lot is cleared. I can see his point because it would be nice for my kids to have more space to roam and play. I also need more area to be cleared so that I can build an outdoor BBQ area with a lot of built-in brick seating for friends.
My dad used to cut down trees for a living when my brother and I were kids. I watched him do it at times, but really never helped cut one down myself. Even so, I felt like I remembered enough from what I did see as a child that I could do it myself without bringing in extra help. Continue reading

BMW has a very mixed heritage in terms of when the company was formed. The origin of BMW have been traced to back to the start of the 20th century when a man called Karl Friedrich Rapp, who was a very well known engineer in Germany working for a German aircraft company, set up his own business called Rapp Motoren, in a part of his home town of Munich. He specialised in building aircraft engines for planes of that time. In its early years the company was very successful and Rapp stepped down from the business due to personal financial problems.
Two Austrian men Franz Josef Popp and Max Friz took over the company and in that year (1916) they renamed the business to Bayersiche Motoren Werke or Bavarian Motor Works (BMW) which is the company that we know of today. They continued to build aircraft engines throughout the next few years providing the Luftwaffe with BMW powered aircraft during the First World War.
Then, in 1923, BMW made their first motorcycle called the R23, producing 3090 of them during its 3 year lifetime and production carried on until 1926.
It wasn’t until 1928 that BMW made their first car. It was called
Sports cars are widely loved, but a quick survey of one’s morning commute will show they are not the most popular vehicle type on the road. Four door sedans, SUV’s, practical pickup trucks, and small economy cars dominate the automotive landscape. Sports cars seem to be an increasingly rare commodity. This is because other types of automobiles are increasingly able to take the best aspects of the sports car experience while avoiding some pitfalls inherent to the smaller speedsters.
For a long time, high performance was ruled by sports cars. Manufacturers used their sports car line to showcase new developments and design elements. Today, however, it appears many of these great qualities can be easily adapted to other car types.
The lighter construction of today’s cars, coupled with improvements in technology, has allowed family sedans to perform almost on par with sports cars. In fact, many of today’s “standard” offerings outperform the higher end sports cars of only a few years ago. Even SUV and trucks boast technology and performance that were unthinkable only a short while ago.
The automobile has evolved to a point where virtually any type of car can capture sports car technology. Regular production cars handle better than ever
In reality the true bestsellers would be the many mid-size sedans currently on the market, for example the new 2015 Chrysler 200 for example, although usually on TV when you see commercials advertising vehicles, often it will be the tough work truck that will handle any job, or maybe the sleek new sports car that is out of many peoples budget range. For some great choices in Chrysler vehicles visit, Chrysler Marin.
The sales of these kinds of vehicles definitely make up a far larger amount of all new car sales in comparison with any other model type, but it’s really not only because sedans are so much more popular, it’s also because there are so many available to choose from, no matter what type of automotive manufacturer you choose to choose, as they they all are guaranteed to have quite a few sedans in their lineup.
Straight away you can definitely see many of the changes Chrysler has made, above all being its new and extremely stylish body design that is definitely turning heads from drivers everywhere, even though there isn’t really a big size difference in the new 2015 Chrysler
The 2007 RDX has a four-banger costing close to 40 grand. But the RDX existed as the lightest member of the trio in the comparison test, and its 6.5-second sprint to 60 mph makes it an Olympic setter in the world of SUVs. However, the BMW X3, which is more potent with a 20hp, matched the RDX’s quarter-mile trap speed. Moreover, the BMW was a 10th ahead by the time both were humping along at 100 mph. The RDX’s observed fuel economy was 3 mpg worse than the hype BMW’s.
Another target of Acura was to charge the RDX with the driving pleasure that is offered by the TSX sedan. Fortunately, the brand was successful in such goal. Light and sharp steering is attained with right-now turn-in and you always know what the front tires are up to. As to the handling, the RDX exuded controlled body motions and was more solidly planted in turns than many automobiles. It had the greatest skidpad grip as well as the highest speed through an emergency-lane-change test. Its transmission offers only five choices but the manumatic (combination of manual and automatic) paddles behind the steering wheel functioned so instantly and intensely that the testers
In the 1960s there was a class of cars introduced to the world known as muscle cars. These cars were sleek and sporty and contained a powerful engine. Most of these cars boasted a V8 engine which was geared for speed. As these cars were produced the manufacturers were in stiff competition with each other. As each manufacturer tried to out do the other, we were led into an era of some of the fastest cars of our time. With no thought to gas and fuel efficiency, Americans seemed to be having the time of their lives. Their cars were fast and eye-catching, both on the road and on the race track. Racing stripes and flashy decals made a statement about both the car and the driver. It seemed the flashier the car the more desirable.
At a time when the luxury automobile was the king of the road for the married set, the younger crowd wanted something smaller, faster, and sportier. The Shelby Mustang and the 440 Roadrunner are two of the fast cars which were built to satisfy the desire for high performance and speed. There were many more fast cars to come. Camaros, Chargers, GTOs, and Firebirds all
After losing $12.7 billion last year, Ford is facing financial problems which have led to the sale of the ultra-luxury brand Aston Martin. The European car brand was sold by the Dearborn-based car manufacturer earlier this year to give its financial status a boost. Lately though, the company is still posting reduced sale. This has led the company to put Jaguar and Land Rover in the auction block.
One of the potential buyers for the British brands is the same equity firm that has taken the money-loosing Chrysler from the hands of DaimlerChrysler AG. Cerberus, the private equity firm, is currently ironing out the purchase of 80 percent of the Chrysler Group.
Aside from acquiring Chrysler, Cerberus is reported to be interested in the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. It is reported that the firm has approached Ford concerning the sale of the two British brands. The talks though between the car manufacturer and the private equity firm have not resulted to Cerberus offering to buy the two brands.
Ford has already hired the services of financial firms to come up with a price for the Jaguar and the Land Rover. Merrill Lynch estimated that Ford could bring in as much as $1.5
The Jaguar S-Type is a mid-size luxury car by the British marquee Jaguar. It made its debut in 2000 as a revival to the 1963 S-Type model. The second generation Jaguar S Type made its debut in 2003. It later on had a minor facelift in year 2004 and was continued up to model year 2007.
The 2008 S-Type is a 4-door, 5-passenger luxury sedan, or luxury sports sedan, available in 3 trims, ranging from the 3.0 to the R. It is a carryover from model year 2007. “The 3.0 is equipped with a standard 3.0-liter, V6, 235-horsepower engine that achieves 17-mpg in the city and 26-mpg on the highway. The R is equipped with a standard 4.2-liter, V8, 400-horsepower, supercharged engine that achieves 15-mpg in the city and 22-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard on both trims.” The S-Type V8 packs great performance which deserves a lot of praise from auto reviews. With more gears to choose from, it offers excellent drivability around town.
There is not much cosmetic change between the 2008 Jaguar S Type and last year’s version; it still keeps up with the classic feel, reviving the style of the ’60s sedan.

Porsche 928, which was named ‘land shark’ due to its ability to eat up the road in less time, is enjoying the limelight as it gets favorable attention from car fanatics of today’s time. Aficionados are still flabbergasted by the fastest car in the whole world. Its long existence and rocketing sales are just few of the reasons why Porsche 928 is said to be hotter than before.
Porsche has pioneered lots of technical features in vehicles. Moreover, said features were incorporated in its flagship deluxe coupe. Designed in the year 1971 to eventually replace 911, Porsche 928 was finally released to the public in 1977 at the Geneva Motor Show. Said car was named “International Car of the Year”. The car’s design was based on the transaxle principle where the engine was placed in front of the car and the gearbox. The extensive testing and experimentation resulted in a car with superb standards in steering, brakes, and suspension.

Fisi, the Italian Formula One driver, may have scored a point at the last round, but finishing a lap down on the leaders was not where he wanted to be – especially as the team’s nearest rivals, BMW Sauber, finished a convincing fourth. Now the focus switches to the Nurburgring, one of the Italian driver’s favorite circuits. It is also where he is hoping for better things.
Asked whether the last two races were quite tough and the chance that he can turn things around this weekend, the Italian Formula One driver has this to say: “It is fair to say that the last two races were a bit disappointing, all the more so because they were our home races. We knew that it would be a tough battle with BMW: all of the teams are making progress, and our challenge is to do so faster than them in order to get ahead and try to close the gap in the championship. We are going in the right direction, and everybody is doing their maximum. I am convinced that if we carry on like this, our hard work will pay off.”
Does Fisichella enjoy European Grand Prix Nurburgring circuit? “Yes, I have

This sports car is known to be a coupe that holds two doors. It also has got two seats in its cabin. According to Porsche, the Cayman idea actually came from the inspiration of the Porsche Boxter.

When the Porsche Cayman revved up its engine and started roaring through the streets and giving the company a huge amount in sales and profit, awards also came rushing to recognize the power and performance that this sports car has. Maintenance

Most auto connoisseurs consider the Porsche 64 which is also sometimes known as the VW Aerocoupe, Type 64 and Type 64K10 as being the first automobile made by Porsche. It was manufactured mainly from parts from the Model 64 VW Beetle and that is where the model number comes from. The Porsche 64’s flat-four engine produced fifty b.h.p. and gave the vehicle a top speed of 160 km/h. The body was designed by Porsche Burro after wind tunnel tests made for the Type 114, a V10 racer that never saw the light of day as a production car. Dr. Porsche planned to enter the roadster in the 1939 Berlin to Rome race event. The bodywork specialist company Reutter made three cars from shaped aluminum. Out of the three, one was totaled in the early years of World War II by a VW bureaucrat. The two cars that remained were used by the exclusively by the Porsche family.
Towards the end of World War Two, they put one of the vehicles in storage and used the other one. American troops discovered the one put in storage in May 1945, cut the top of it off and took it joyriding for a few
