Hand-made Art: More From Toyota's 1:5 Collection | Speedhunters

Hand-made Art: More From Toyota’s 1:5 Collection Next Chapter Last week I posted about the amazing collection of 1:5 scale design models that were put on public display as part of the Toyota 75 exhibit at Toyota’s Japanese museum in Aichi Prefecture. As mentioned in the first post, I ended up spending just as much time looking over the rare, one-off collection of ‘miniatures’ as I did the real cars at the exhibit and based on the response to the last week’s story, it seems you guys are just excited about these models as I was. So you’ll be happy to know I’ve got more scale magic to share from this exhibit. Those who are familiar with car design will know that one fifth scale ...

Toyota’s $1 Billion Fine Begs Question: Do We Really Want To Regulate…

Toyota’s $1 Billion Fine Begs Question: Do We Really Want To Regulate…

Toyota’s $1 Billion Fine Begs Question: Do We Really Want To Regulate This Way? Earlier this year I had an episode of unintended acceleration. I was moving my car at the iceboat ramp, wearing oversized Sorel boots, and suddenly the engine revved uncontrollably. It was one of those heart-in-the-throat, terrifying moments, as the engine snarled like an uncaged beast and I wondered if I was going to crash into another car or roar off across the lake. Then I realized my boot was pressing the accelerator and the brake pedal at the same time. I lifted my foot and the problem went away. The evidence strongly suggests that’s what’s behind most cases of unintended acceleration involving Toyota ...

A Car Made Out of What? — MSN Autos

There’s a generation of less conventional and more environmentally friendly building materials on the horizon. Sheet metal and petro-plastic beware! Toyota’s 1/x hybrid concept, whose bioplastic exterior contains seaweed, has the same interior space as a Prius, but weighs only 926 pounds — about one-third the weight of a Prius — and aims to double its fuel efficiency. More than a century ago, Henry Ford made a pragmatic — yet arguably visionary — decision by ditching car body panels made of wood for ones made out of sheet metal. The move increased the speed of automobile construction exponentially, and eventually led to the mass-produced car. However, metal wasn’t the only material ...

Toyota Still No. 1 in Global Auto Sales | News — Advertising Age

Falls Just Short of Selling 10 Million Vehicles in 2013 By Hans Greimel. Published on January 23, 2014. 0 Toyota Motor Corp. kept its crown as the world’s biggest automaker while falling just short of becoming the first carmaker to sell more than 10 million vehicles in a single year. Toyota predicted it would breach the 10-million milestone this year, with sales of 10.32 million in calendar year 2014. That forecast represents a 4% increase over the 9.98 million cars it sold in calendar year 2013, the company said today. Something to celebrate: Toyota remains No. 1 Last year, Toyota’s tally rose 2% to top the 9.71 million sold by General Motors. Volkswagen AG gave a rounded figure ...

Coolant/Antifreeze

Overview Auto coolants used to be simple. Every two years you flushed your out your old coolant and replaced it with new you got from your auto supply store. Recently (1994-96 for GM, 1997-98 for VW, 2002-03 for Ford, 2001 for Chrysler. ) manufacturers started using extend life coolants with different anti-corrosives for longer life (because people neglected to change it every two years). Some were hybrids with combinations of the new organic acid technology (OAT) and old ingredients like phosphates. The europeans (VW, BMW) didn’t like phosphates because of the reaction of their hard water with phosphates; The Japanese (Honda, Toyota) on the other hand liked phosphates because they worked ...
