Some essential advice before buying a used car according to Mike Brewer Wheeler Dealers
" If you're in a market for a used car you might want this old Ferrari 308. They aren't just folding. There are a few things that you should do if we set off to go and buy a car. The first of which is to use your phone, maybe your landline or your mobile phone, and phone with data service. Somebody like HPI or the AA, and they can give you all the information you would need to know whether the car is pretty involved in any accidents, whether the police have got an interest, but more importantly, if it's got any finance outstanding. Now, the only information you need to give him is a registration number of a car. And if you can, get the chassis number of the owner as well. That way, you can find out that the car you're buying is genuine rather than setting off to go [unk] in the first place. All it cost is the same price as a tanker fuel, and it's the best money you'll ever spend. Secondly, when you arrive to go and see the car, make sure that the car has not been previously rammed before you got there. What I mean by that is put your hand on the body, although dirty on this Ferrari, or look can be stupid because the engine on this car is down the back. So, when I do get to the car, I can put the key in ignition and see if there's any nasty fumes or black smoke coming out the Exhaust pipe. Now, the other thing to do is when you do go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork tallies to the place where you're actually standing. You'd be amazed of the amount of people who buy a car from the petrol station or from a pump carpark. What you should do, is when you go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork says you'll stand in the barn any town. Make sure you all stand in at the barn any town to come and see the car. That way, you know that you're buying a genuine car of a genuine owner. Now, when you do finally get there, and you've checked that it's not been previously rammed, you're standing in the right place, and you've done your days check, don't let your heart rule your head because you can't get carried away, especially with something as evocative as this lovely 308 GT4. You want to make sure that you've got yourself a price and stick to it. Don't go above it; otherwise, you could end up to shell your money out forever in a day to keep that thing on the road. If the car has got any outstanding finance, then make sure you speak to the finance company before you go to see the vehicle and find out what that settlement figure should be. That way, you can give the owner the balance of the vehicle that you've agreed to purchase it from, and send the settlement figure directly to the finance company. That way, you know it's been paid. Other than that, happy motoring."

Lancia Stratos - The best Rally car with rear drive
The first purpose-built rally car in the world was developed purely to win
the world championship. Created in a limited production run of specialist
cars, it also happens to be the best-looking rally car of all time.
The Stratos was a very successful rally car during the 1970s and early
1980s. It started a new era in rallying as it was the first car designed
from scratch for this kind of competition. The three leading men behind the
entire rallying project were Lancia team manager Cesare Fiorio, British
racer/engineer Mike Parkes and factory rally driver Sandro Munari.
n 1971 Lancia presented the Lancia Stratos HF prototype. The prototype
(Chassis 1240) was fluorescent red in colour and featured a distinctive
crescent-shaped-wrap-around windshield providing maximum forward visibility
with almost no rear visibility (which was unnecessary for rallying anyway).
The prototype had three different engines in its early development life:
the Lancia Fulvia engine, the Lancia Beta engine and finally the
mid-mounted 190 bhp (140 kW) 2418 cc Dino Ferrari V6.
Lancia did extensive testing with the Stratos and raced the car in several
racing events where Group 5 prototypes were allowed during the 1972 and
1973 seasons. Production of the 400 cars required for homologation in Group
4 were launched in 1973 and the Stratos was homologated for the 1974 World
Rally Championship.  The Dino V6 was phased out in 1974, but 500 engines
among the last built were delivered to Lancia.
For racing, the engine was tuned up to 280 hp (209 kW) and even to 560 hp
(418 kW) with a single KKK turbocharger.
However, turbocharged versions were only
allowed to compete in Group 5 and were never as reliable as their naturally
The car won the 1974, 1975 and 1976 championship titles in the hands of
Sandro Munari and Björn Waldegård, and might have gone on to win more had
not internal politics within the Fiat group placed rallying responsibility
on the Fiat 131 Abarths. As well as victories on the 1975, 1976 and 1977
Monte Carlo Rally, all courtesy of Munari, the Stratos won the event with
the private Chardonnet Team as late as 1979.
Without support from Fiat, and despite new regulations that restricted
engine power, the car would remain a serious competitor and proved able to
beat works cars in several occasions when entered by an experienced private
team with a talented driver. The final chapter of the Stratos' racing
career at international level took place as late as 1981, at the Tour de
Corse Automobile, another World Rally Championship event, with a victory by
longtime Stratos privateer Bernard Darniche.
When the Fiat group favored the Fiat 131 for rallying Lancia also built two
Group 5 turbocharged 'silhouette'
Stratos for closed-track endurance racing. These cars failed against the
Porsche 935s on closed tracks but proved successful in hybrid events. While
they failed in the Tour de France Automobile, one of these cars won the
1976 Giro d'Italia Automobilistico, an Italian counterpart of the Tour de
France Automobile. Unfortunately one of the cars was destroyed in Zeltweg,
when it caught fire due to overheating problems. The last surviving car
would win the Giro d'Italia event again before it was shipped to Japan to
compete in the Fuji Speedway based Formula Silhouette series, which was
never raced. The car would then be sold and reside in the Matsuda
Collection before then being sold to the renowned collector of Stratos',
Christian Hrabalek, a car designer and the founder of Fenomenon Ltd.
Automobile design consultant Chris Hrabalek has the largest Lancia Stratos
Collection in the world - he owns 11 unique Lancia Stratos cars, including
the fluorescent red 1971 factory prototype and the 1977 Safari Rally car.

Tuning Performance - Reprogramming the engine management computer.
" This might look like a random industrial estate in the middle of slum,
but actually, I'm outside the place, you know, a very clever and quite
simple way of giving our car the performance it really deserves."
" This specialist tuning company Boosts horsepower by reprogramming
the engine management computer. It's safe for the engine and fast to do.
Putting the car onto a rolling road means we can get our Porsche up to a
top speed in a controlled environment and measure the current horsepower of the car."
" Okay Martin, so 235 horsepower. Is that okay for
" Yeah, we're good to go. It's a good pocket of power."
" Cool. So let's mess with it, that's all."
" Before we can Boost the
performance of our engine, Martin needs to remove our car's ECU or engine
" Now there's no real mystery about ECUs. It's just a computer in a box.
But the thing I'm most interested in is that little chip. There is an
EEPROM. It's been like an old-fashioned version of a memory stick."
" We're going to replace the chip with a new one which will be programmed
or mapped to increase both brake horsepower and torque."
" So we've now got a new map onto a new chip, which is gonna give our car
more performance, more power, basically more drivability. And we're
actually gonna keep the old chip with the old map on there. So if anytime
the new buyer wants to go back to the old ways, they can"
" horsepower, and
that's basically 31 horsepower more than when we
started. So well worth it. What a brilliant result!"

" As you can see, I delicately squeezed myself out of the car. Ed! Look

" It's the Tomy toys of smallest cars. This is the beginner's sports car.
If anyone can work on it, you can, sunshine. I would reckon."

13 Car Buying Mistakes - How Auto Dealerships rip you off - by The Homework Guy
http://www.thebusinessforumshow.com/ Kevin Hunter, Host of The Business
Forum Show, spent countless hours researching and compiling the information
and data shared on this video.
People in the car business who profit from your mistakes will rant about
things we share here and disagree with the content, but don't be fooled by
their rhetoric. Car salespeople love an ignorant car shopper. We will try
to help you avoid the common mistakes, and assist you in sorting the facts
from the baloney in this business. We profit nothing regardless of what you
choose to do, and we don't care much if you use the information or not. If
you do, you'll find yourself walking away with a much better car deal, and
having earned a great deal of respect from people you'll encounter when you
visit a car dealership. The choice is completely yours.
How do Car Dealers rip you off? This video presents 13 different car buying
mistakes that you can't afford to make when car shopping. Learn about Car
Salesmen and Auto Dealerships, and the dirty tricks they play to rip people
off. Presented by Consumer Advisor Kevin Hunter, known as "The Homework
Guy." You'll also learn about some of the scams and inappropriate products
sold by both new and used car dealers. These include things like the theft
protection scam, GAP insurance that is sold to consumers who either didn't
need it, or could have purchased much cheaper from their own insurance
agent, and extended warranties that are often sold to buyers who didn't
want or need them. To make matters worse, there are also thousands of car
dealers with finance offices that are some of the most unscrupulous people
you'll ever meet, willing to tell you any lie they can come up with to sell
you everything I've described, and more. The worst ones will even claim
your interest rate on your loan was 'granted you' only if you buy all the
added products they are proposing.
What is this video about? It's designed to help you discover how you can
save time and money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your
homework first, and then going car shopping as an informed buyer. Need more

reside in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area in Minnesota and would like a
referral to an honest dealer we know, reach out to us at sites noted above.
We will be more than happy to pair you up with good people we know who will
treat you like people ought to be treated: With fairness, honesty, and good
Is it unreasonable to expect a little old-fashioned honesty? We don't think
so, but we are more than amused by the countless car salespeople or car
dealers who contact us and state that we are making a 'small problem' sound
far worse than it is. Are you kidding us? We know there are honest people,
and perhaps you are one of them, but it's definitely a buyer beware world
For all of you car buyers who are well steeped in reality, if you watched
the video "Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this
video. By understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a
smarter car buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car
dealer when buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up
front with an honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority
of dealer owners, and you are unlikely to know the difference until it's
far too late. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car
deal that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is
all about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some
customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car
from a dealer. When a car dealer loses money on a deal, they just take it
from the next unsuspecting person. We don't think your neighbor should have
to pay for your car, so we encourage you to be fair. Everything we talk
about has to do with fairness and honesty, and that works both ways.
Respect the dealers right to make money in your quest to get a fair and
honest car deal, proving to them you're an honest person too. It's this
kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers alike that will change the
car business. We wish you the best!
