5 THINGS ABOUT CARS I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW

3 min read
  1. Anti-lock brake systems (ABS): In 1979, Mercedes-Benz was the first car company to put this technology in a production car. Since late 2011, all new passenger cars sold in Australia must have ABS and stability control by law.

Australia made the pickup truck, which we call the "ute." It was the most popular car in North America for almost 50 years. 2014 marked the 80th birthday of the humble Ute. Ford researchers say that in 1933, the wife of a farmer in Gippsland wrote to Ford and asked, "Can you build me a car that we can use to go to church on Sundays and that my husband could use to bring pigs to market on Mondays?" Lew Bandt, who was a young designer at Geelong Ford at the time, had the idea of putting a car and a cargo truck together. In 1934, it was finally okayed and put into production.

 

  1. Ralph Teetor, who invented cruise control and other things, went blind when he was 5 years old. But this problem didn't make him feel less smart or less confident. And the thought that he invented cruise control because he was tired of constantly speeding up and slowing down made it hard for him to talk to his friends in the car.

 

  1. The first car accident ever reported happened more than a hundred years ago. It was an accident involving a car with a single-cylinder engine. A gasoline engine made by Lambert gave the car a top speed of 5 mph. The car hit a tree root first, then a hitching post.

 

  1. There were more electric cars on the road in the early 1900s. At the start of the 20th century, there were more electric cars than gasoline-powered cars on North American roads. But gasoline-powered cars took over because batteries could only go so far, oil was discovered, and the internal combustion engine was made. At least for the first 100 years...

 

No matter how old a car is, everyone wants to drive it in the best way possible. Just like any other thing in the world, cars lose their ability to work well after a short time and need to be serviced regularly to keep working well. Cars can also break down or get hurt in other ways that require repairs. Bumpaman is a mobile car repair service in Perth that fixes cars to a high standard.
