Juan Lucas's insight:

For my future career i would love to work on some old big three General Motor vehicles. there nothing like changing some hearders or fixing the timing on and old big block 350 motor. Also after me looking throughs these photos i saw a monte carlos that my dad used to drive and it reminded of the photo he showed me. So that car has to be one of my favorite out of the rest because of though memories.

Mazzanti moves closer to production on its suicidal Evantra supercar | mechanic | Scoop.it
There are names you hear ad nauseum in the sports car industry. Then there are names that you hear whispered every few years. Mazzanti is one of the latter,...
Juan Lucas's insight:

This style of the Mazzariti is amazing car espacially to be put into the supercar category. I think Mazzarati really went to a different level with this car. I would have thought Mazzarati would ever make a super car like this one i thought they only made luxur. With this car they changed my mind whatever they had plan they accomplished it cause that's a beautiful car.

What's so tempting about Texas to Toyota?

What's so tempting about Texas to Toyota? | mechanic | Scoop.it
The past three decades have seen a transformation of Japan's Big 3 from importers of Japan-built vehicles to powerful U.S. manufacturers whose operations stretch from sales and marketing in California to engineering and factories in the Midwest and South. That transformation has driven Toyota to gather up some far-flung operations and resettle them to the Dallas suburb of Plano, where, notably, it has no existing operations.
Juan Lucas's insight:

i think that it's pretty intresting thattoyota would move there location from southen California to Dallas Texas. To me i dont understand what is the difference between the to different city and why japan has a big influence nt the big 3 manufaturing and saels. I would think that toyota being establish in Southern California it would be more beneficial than Dallas Texas.

Juan Lucas's insight:

i think that the style of the future that the year1947 designed art what it comes out to be. The style that they have designed are more like full custom vehicle rather than cars that would be street legal. Or used as a daily driver. They're more of a carshow type design. The style that they had came out are a little over exagerating i dont think alot of people would spend money for a vehicle in that type of style they would want a daily commuteter rather than just take out on a bright sunny day.

the style of the mercedes is just outrageous i cant believe the details and futuristic look it has. I think in my opinion Mercedes/ German engineering is probably the best manufacturing and durable vehicles that you can possibly get. and with the new concept cars that they are planning on releasing are out of this world.
