engages numerous audiences in exploring urban life and design by the preservation and interpretation of the architecture of Henry Hobson Richardson and the historic home of John and Frances Glessner.

Complicating your exercise even more is the truth that people are likely to maintain their vehicles longer nowadays than they used to. That is in large part because quality has gone up, decreasing the frequency wanted to purchase a brand new automobile. I think this has much more to do with the declining share of GDP dedicated to auto purchases than any of the opposite elements you talked about.

A buyer enquiry about rewires, and automobile electrics led to a chat with Neil, who needed the piece of thoughts that a leisure battery and auxiliary wiring system could provide for household tenting trips in his 2 litre, 1978 Baywindow Westy (IE- the family could run every part all weekend and still drive off on the end of the vacation).

Craig had set his sights on taking his T34 Razor edge Karmann Ghia straight out the doors to the Viva Skeg Vegas present in Skegness. A few late nights within the workshop, an intensive element by our good good friend Paul at The Detailing Home , and a last minute becoming of the handbrake cables that we had custom made, collected en route from Wales by Craig, meant that at around 7.30pm on a friday evening, we finally waved goodbye to the razor.

The odd-wanting line in this graph is the one for home consumption of autos and parts as a fraction of GDP; the line begins to drop after 2002, solely reversing in 2010. It’s odd to me as a result of a graph of US vehicle gross sales is actually flat from 2001 to 2007 at between 16 and 17 million vehicles per year. Studying off Stuart’s graph above, the gross consumption line starts at about 3.7% of GDP in 2001 and drops to round 2.8% in 2007, so roughly a 25% drop. Looking at BEA Desk 1.1.5. US GDP rose 36% during that interval.
