Yesterday , I did a simple rough calculation about Basic Motors to attempt to get at how much manufacturing job loss one could attribute to overseas competitors versus automation and productivity will increase. Various commenters objected that my assumptions were too simplistic, particularly in neglecting the home content in international autos and the significance of shifts in the supply chain over time.

The odd-wanting line on this graph is the one for domestic consumption of autos and components as a fraction of GDP; the road starts to drop after 2002, solely reversing in 2010. It’s odd to me as a result of a graph of US car gross sales is basically flat from 2001 to 2007 at between sixteen and 17 million autos per 12 months. Reading off Stuart’s graph above, the gross consumption line starts at about three.7% of GDP in 2001 and drops to around 2.8% in 2007, so roughly a 25% drop. Taking a look at BEA Table 1.1.5. US GDP rose 36% throughout that period.
If there’s one automotive that thrives in the summertime solar, its a Beach Buggy. Nev’s Bugle buggy undertaking is really coming alongside now, and E’s Autos whizzed throughout Surrey and Hampshire and seperated the body and shortened VW Beetle floorpan to allow the floor to be rolled out from the storage, painted, detailed and ready for the physique to be dropped again in place as soon as it has been painted.
A buyer enquiry about rewires, and automobile electrics led to a chat with Neil, who wanted the piece of thoughts that a leisure battery and auxiliary wiring system might supply for family tenting trips in his 2 litre, 1978 Baywindow Westy (IE- the family may run all the things all weekend and still drive off on the finish of the vacation). A complete new system was fitted with further 12 volt sockets, a seperate easily accessible fusebox and house for additions as and when required.
