I just love cars. In today’s world could you live without the use of a car?

Ever since Henry Ford, who had the vision of making the automobile affordable to a bigger number of consumers, the world has been pushed forward in the era of the automobile.Mankind has thus gained an accrued mobility with the car.This break through is compared by some anthropologists as a leap similar in impact to mankind as the invention the wheel. Mobility cuts through time. That is why the automobile was called time machine at some stage in its development.

Suburban living,hypermarkets and shopping malls found their birth & growth with the advent of the larger ownership of cars.
I invite you to a virtual tour of AUTOWORLD which is presently being held in Brussels.I took pleasure in going through the website to see at a quick glance the evolution of this industry.

With much nostalgia, I plunged back in the days when I had the burden of looking after the automobile sectors of Rogers Group. “How to reconcile the exigencies of financial performances(Economic Value Added) with the needs of the workers?” was my dilemma. Another chapter of my rich and varied working life to turn over the leaf. Yet another page where I drew so much joy and learning from the people I interacted with.

For the entrepreneurs, the lessons I retained were; love and respect your fellow co-workers;through sincere communications together you will travel a long way and producing economic value for the shareholders is never in opposition with workers welfare in spite of what the unions may seem to push for.

PS: For those interested to earn a living from the auto industry try out the website

From a friend in Berlin Germany
I sneaked into your blog and was surprised to see you into CARS! Hihi.
I love old cars particularly the Peugeot 504 cabriolet designed by Pininfarina.
But today we have such a hard discussion about the climate that I think
we should rethink about mobility and become “socially” more mobil then “individually”.
Utopia…why mankind does not really evolute in terms of higher intelligence…

She is too shy to write on the blog!

What car would Jesus drive?

How can you be a car lover and at the same time be a Christian?

Just a thought,

The car Jesus drives is called Peace and Love for all. If loving cars do not get me off the track of walking in the steps of Jesus, then I can well be a car lover and a Christian. Jesus in his days was a great lover of nature and beauty. In fact, contemplation of beauty of any sort leads me nearer to GOD, the provider of all.

However, cars destroy nature and beauty and possibly creation, eventually.

Would Jesus live today and see what cars are doing to the world, would he be a car driver?

(By the way, I do not own a car. It’s entirely possible in a world that has not been designed around the car.)

The problem is not cars. Rather, in my opinion the problem is the amount and nature of resources used to 1) produce the cars 2) maintain and operate the car.

Not mentioning the output of those cars.

However, we are moving forward in a positive direction with hybrid-electric cars and eventually fully electric ones. As well, manufacturers are getting quite the slack nowadays for leaving a negative ecological footprint.

The automobile is here to stay, no question.
