Modding Flying Cars

I've been saying it for years now. As a child, I was promised that by this point in my life, there would be flying cars. When I grew up I wanted to fly my car to work every day. It was inevitable. I saw it in Back to the Future II, so it will certainly happen. Zemeckis can't be wrong! But it hasn't happened yet and I've had to get over it. No more! Now I can see from the images and video posted on this graphic editor's site that actually creating flying cars is not too far off into the future. All that was needed I guess was Photoshop. Modding flying cars in Aviary.

Okay, admittedly the videos and images are all fake and don't have any actual basis in a live model available today. However, it's still cool.

Car Buying Tips: Step by Step: The Car Buying Checklist

Hey, so what if the economy is in the toilet. Everybody needs a new occasionally and what you need are the best car-buying tips you can get for free! Seriously!

Many people feel that they know how to buy a car from a dealer. They've bought many cars in their lives and they "don't need no stinkin' advice" to make the best deal they can make.

Before you go into the process of purchasing a vehicle, remember 2 things:

  1. Regardless of how prepared you think you are, there's probably something you missed if you aren't systematic about it.

  2. Most people buy a car every 2-5 years. Most salespeople sell 2-5 cars a week. They have a little more experience than you on "the battlefield".

Here's a step-by-step checklist that briefly describes the process you should use before, during, and after making a car deal.
