At 34, Vicki Vlachakis who is already an acclaimed designer has her stamp on two of GM’s recent triumphs: the Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice. The sleek, eye-catching sport convertibles have managed to reinvigorate two GM brands as Detroit strains to avoid ruining the business. Vlachakis is at the front of a small, but increasingly influential pack of smart, young designers that Detroit counts on to make it relevant to an under-40 crowd that doesn’t much care for American vehicles and has almost no loyalty to the home team.
The M998, M998A1, M1038 and M1038A1 Humvee’s are cargo/troop carrier configurations of the HMMWV family. These used army vehicles are most commonly used to transport equipment, materials, or personnel. The cargo carrier configuration is capable of transporting a payload (including crew) of 2,500 pounds and the troop carrier is capable of transporting a two man crew and eight passengers.
Both use a troop seat kit for troop transport operations. The cargo/troop carrier can also be configured in a four man crew configuration. The vehicles can climb 60% slopes and traverse a side slope of up to 40% fully loaded. The vehicles can ford hard bottom water crossing up to 30 inches without a deep water fording kit and up to 60 inches with the kit.
There are hundreds of different car enthusiasts and each have their own favorite vehicle that they love. Some are fans of the mustang while others of the corvette. Most have thier own vehicle, vintage probably, that they have spruced up and worked hard on.
Alot of hard work, sweat, and many different auto parts go into keeping those vehicles running and looking their best. That is why it is important to find the best parts that can be found for these vehicles. Unfortunately it isn’t always easy to find the parts that are needed.
