20 Gorgeous Photos of Cars

Every week, we get a few car photographs in our Shooting Challenges. I get it. You like cars. So… Read more Read more

Winner: It’s The Paint Job

One of my buddies at work is really into cars, and by really I mean he practically washes his car every two days. Being an amateur photographer I’m always on the look out for new ways to take pictures and after seeing this photo challenge I suggested going out for a photoshoot and attempting something called light painting. For those unfamiliar with light painting it’s the process of using a light source such as a flashlight and a long exposure to paint your image. To capture the image we used a LED flash light and ran around the car like chickens with their heads cut off painting the surface of the car during the duration of the shutter speed. After waiting around for people and cars to come and go and before getting yelled at by a police officer that we were illegally parked we were able to get a this shot.

Toy Car

Hey my rental car is stuck in the middle of the desert. Let me take a picture of it. As I was driving to Phoenix Arizona to catch my flight back home to Michigan I saw a sign for the Kofa National Wildlife Reserve. I had some extra time to kill so I decided to take a quick detour. A few miles down the road there was an information area. I got out, took a few pictures, and checked out the information board. There was a map. It looked like I could take a few of these roads and end up 20 miles down the highway that I had just been on. I would have to take a few trails that said four wheel drive recommended but my rental car had four wheel drive so I was good to go. It headed down the road and went on the trail. It was beautiful and I was having a great time. The trail got a little rougher but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. Then I got stuck. I tried giving it more gas but I was just smoking the tires. I was afraid of blowing a tire so I got out, assessed the situation, and took this picture. I let a little air out of the tires to get more traction. Crap! That didn’t work. I could let some more out but then I would loose ground clearance. I haven’t had cell reception in a while so I can’t call for help. What am I going to do? I have a bottle of water and a granola bar. My running shoes are in my suitcase. Maybe I should go run for help. But it’s 100 degrees and I could get dehydrated fast. I have to get unstuck. I finally grabbed some rocks and jammed them under the wheels. It worked! I was moving again! After a few more stressful hours of off-roading I finally made it back to the highway and I was on my way to Phoenix again. Equipment: iPhone 4S. Post Production: I played around with a few apps and ended up liking the tilt-shift effect in the Snapseed app the best. It seemed to bring the vehicle into the spot light and made the rest of the picture a blur. Which was exactly how I was feeling at the time.

Fiat S.p.A. which is an acronym for Fabbrica Italino Automobilo Turino (which means Italian Automobile Factory of Turin) is an Italian automaker which has been manufacturing cars since as early as 1899. Fiat was formed by a group of investors which includes Giovanni Agnelli. Today Fiat is Italy’s largest car maker.

Fiat India Automobiles Limited is a 50-50 Industrial Joint Venture between Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A and Tata Motors which was incorporated on 2nd January, 1997. The agreement was signed on 19th October, 2007. The current board of directors for this company has five nominees each from Fiat and Tata. The production plant is based out in Ranjangaon, in the Pune district, Maharashtra and it employs over 600 employees.

Fiat, which holds a 50% stake in the Company, also owns and controls five internationally renowned brands:- Fiat Automobiles, Alfa Romeo Automobiles, Lancia Automobiles, Abarth and Fiat Light Commercial Vehicles, the makers of renowned cars such as the Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Lancia besides the Fiat branded cars.

History

The roots of Fiat in India are much deeper than FIAL formation. In 1951, Premier Automobiles Limited produced Fiat 500 for the Indian market. Later on in 1954, the 500 was replaced by the Fiat 1100. In 1973 Premier renamed the 1100 as the Premier Padmini and in 1984 the Indian manufacturer launched the Fiat 124 as Premier 118NE and 138D. In the 1990s, Premier bought in the Uno and the Siena under the Fiat brand name.

Fiat launched its Palio in the year 2001, which was probably one hatchback which won the hearts of many and numerous awards as well. The Palio was launched with 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 1.9-litre diesel engine. In its initial stages, the Palio was a hatchback with a peppy engine (the 1.6-litre is still one of the quickest hatchbacks ever sold in India), spacious and stylish interiors, ride and handling a class apart from its competition. In April 2007, Fiat relaunched its Palio as the Palio Stile with 1.1 and 1.6-litre petrol engines and 1.3-litre multijet diesel engine which it was already supplying to Maruti Suzuki to power the diesel variant of the Swift.

The Fiat car range

Fiat 500: In 2008, the auto major began expanding its car portfolio by re-launching the 500 (this time on its own) in July 2008. The 500 is the iconic Italian common man’s car, which was re-launched with refreshed styling and engine. The 500 sold in India is a CBU and is powered by the same 1.3-litre multijet engine.

Fiat Linea: On 14th January 2009, the company launched its sedan called the Linea (which means lines in Italian) with 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 1.3-litre diesel engine. This sedan was the first one to get a new feature called Blue

Recommended Reviews for Pacific Car Rentals

We planned to spend a few days in Vancouver on foot and bike and then rent a car to head to Tofino and Victoria. Rates at Pacific Car Rentals were cheaper than all the chains we considered. They re located downtown so we were able to walk over from our hotel and fetch the car (which they even offered to let us keep in their garage) as opposed to hoofing it out to the airport.

1 check-in

Great service!  They closed at 6 and I called them at 550 on a Friday to see if they had any cars available.  They did and held a Honda Civic for me.  We got there at 605 and they did the whole walk through and notifications very quickly and efficiently so we didn t have to wait too long to get the car!

AVOID this place at all costs.  This place SUCKS.  We decided to rent through this company because they were on-site near our hotel (the Renaissance Harbor side).  What a huge mistake. We called to reserve a mid-size car in advance. When we arrived, they had one employee working the desk.  By time it was our turn we were told that all the mid-sized cars had been rented. The employee told us that a full-size was available.  We agreed to the larger car, but then we were rung up at a higher price.  When we contested that we should not be subjected to a higher price because they failed to provide the car they reserved for us, we were told we were SOL.  Conveniently, a compact became available right then.  We agreed to take the compact, but then the clerk tried to charge us for the mid-size claiming that he was giving us the reservation discounted rate.  WE MADE A RESERVATION.  It made no sense. The clerk was very unapologetic and totally not helpful.  We ended up taking the car just to get out of there.

When we went to drop off the car, we found out that the rental company has no overnight parking spots at our pickup location.  Rather they tell you to park the car at a meter and drop off the keys.  However, you re responsible for the meter fee and any parking tickets if the company doesn t move the car first thing. We decided to take the car to their off-site lot and drop it there.  When we arrived, the company had additional terms which were not in the contract which they claim applied.  This included costs for any harm done to the car while it was in their overnight lot, or if the keys were stolen from inside the storefront.

Overall, the entire experience was terrible.  The only reason I gave 2 stars rather than 1 is that the car was nice.  We got a versa and it was pretty new and clean.  It ran fine.

ONE last note – the company charges for milage (kilometers in BC).  Unlike every major car rental company which allows you unlimited rental miles, Pacific Car Rentals only allows you a very small amount, then you pay for each additional kilometer.

There is a Hertz just a few blocks from the Marriott location, a Budget across the street from their main location, and tons of other rental options throughout town.  Avoid this one at all costs.  It s worth a short walk!

Recommended Reviews for Atlanta Used Cars Marietta

2 words. shade tree. Don t be fooled by the luxury inventory. I know a good deal about cars and jumped on what I should ve known was too good to be true. The car had extensive wheel damage, the front end was clearly damaged and tires where bursting at the seams. no wonder the price was under market. yea. b/c the car had been wrecked. Do yourself a favor and go to a certified luxury dealer. I witnessed their world class service of giving customers cars on EMPTY, losing keys to purchased vehicles, and don t believe the magic 3 day repair story. clearly that s just to get your dollar. #Pass

I called John Moore to confirm availability, and sent the mechanic to them. However, after the mechanic went there, he told me the car was SOLD. Wasted my time and $180 on inspection. They really suck.

I bought an 08 sienna about a month and a half ago I traded in a pathfinder I have comes to find out of these douche bags have not pay my trade-in.

Renault is a French manufacturer headquartered in Boulogne-Billancourt a suburb of Paris city. It was founded as the Société Renault Frères in 1899 by brothers Louis, Marcel and Fernand Renault. The French automaker first produced the Renault Voiturette 1CV and then in 1903 began to manufacture its own engines.

It first major sale was in 1905 to the French Government to whom it sold its AG1 branded cars which became public taxis. Over the next two years Renault sold a large numbers of cars in the UK and America and in 1908 it had produced over 3,500 units allowing it to become the largest car maker in France.

Renault participated heavily in the earliest forms of motor racing to gain publicity but gave it up personally when of their trio, Marcel Renault was killed in a road accident. The company continued to participate in racing and has a major involvement till date with various forms of car racing.

The company branched out into heavy vehicles and developed techniques to mass produce cars and consequently bring their prices down. With the onset of WW1, it all branched out into making ammunition, tanks and aeroplanes.

When the war ended, Renault further expanded its design and scope of operations to include tractors and other farm equipment. Its first vehicle to be shown to the public was the 2CV compact car as well as the 4CV compact car which was developed in secrecy during the end stage of the WW2. It further expanded its range of cars over the next 20 years in a variety of body styles including commercial vehicles which were the need of the hour to rebuild liberated France and then help shape its economic history.

The French manufacturer soon began a naming convention which including serialising the names depending on the various body styles. It continued this practice well into the mid-1990s and only then began giving its cars full names. During this period it began collaboration with various manufacturers across the world giving it presence in South East Asia, North America as well as Australia. It also acquired Romanian automaker Dacia which had been known for producing fuel efficient cars.

Renault went through a major restructuring in the late 1980s and collaborated with Volvo and withdrew from a lot of the motorsports it had entered to reduce costs. It began on a revitalisation process and soon began to take steps like a new nomenclature and expansion to various markets. In 1996, the French automaker went private after it was felt that the government involvement was detrimental to the existence of the company. Under the new regime, it ventured into South America and parts of Central Asia as well as into the production of LCVs.

Despite so many measures to change, the company could not revitalise its fortunes and eventually began to follow a plan of cost cutting measures which included standard platforms as well as major organisational changes.

In 1999, it entered into collaboration with Japanese automaker Nissan initially acquiring a 35 per cent stake while Nissan acquired a 15 per cent stake. This was the first time such an alliance had taken place and its magnitude was only secondary to the marriage of cultures that both the automaker’s brought to the table. In addition to the Nissan alliance it also allied with Samsung Motors of South Korea and now sells various rebadged models in the Asian Nation. As of 2010 it also has an alliance with Daimler and produces rebadged models of the German automaker’s line-up. The French automaker also has a major involvement in motorsports since the late 1970s and was the first manufacturer to bring turbocharged engines to various racing series. It currently supplies engines to a variety of teams in various categories of motorsports including Formula 1 where it ran its own team from 2002-2011 and has since partnered Red Bull Racing since 2008 leading it to four titles from 2010-2014.

Renault India Pvt. Ltd. is a fully owned subsidiary of Renault S.A.S. France and currently offers five models in the Indian market – the premium sedan Fluence, the luxury SUV Koleos, the premium compact car, Pulse, the SUV, Duster and the premium sedan, Scala. Renault India also exports the Duster to right-hand drive markets, with India set to become a production hub for right-hand drive cars.

Renault cars are manufactured in their facility located in Oragadam, Chennai, with a capacity of 480,000 units per annum. Currently, Renault India also has a widespread presence of 130 dealer outlets across the country with benchmark sales and service quality.

The French automaker will, in the future, enter the A-segment with a model based on the Dacia Towny as well as the MPV segment, with the Lodgy, which will be sold with the Renault badge.

    Why is Columbus Famous?

    Who was Columbus?
    Columbus was an explorer. In 1492, he sailed from Europe to America. He and his sailors crossed the Atlantic Ocean, not knowing where they would land. It was a voyage into the unknown. After Columbus, other Europeans began to explore and settle in America.

    When did he live?
    Christopher Columbus was born in 1451. It was a time of new ideas and discoveries in Europe. We call this time the Renaissance – a word that means ‘rebirth’. People were making maps of new lands. They were building ships to explore places they had never visited before.

    What did Columbus do?
    Columbus did not ‘discover’ America. There were many people already living there. Vikings from Europe had landed in America 500 years before. But Columbus did not know that. His voyage started regular contact between America and Europe.

    Early days

    Childhood
    Cristoforo Colombo, or Christopher Columbus as we call him, was born in Genoa in Italy. Genoa was a busy port .

    His father was a wool merchant and weaver. We don’t know if Columbus went to school much. He may have had lessons from monks .

    Going to sea
    The Columbus family hoped to get rich by trade. Columbus went to sea at the age of 13. Life at sea was exciting, but dangerous. He hoped to come home a rich man!

    Columbus learned how to sail a wooden ship with sails. He learned about the winds and tides. He learned to navigate (find the way), by looking at the Sun and stars.

    In Portugal
    Columbus went to live in Portugal. One story says he swam ashore after his ship was attacked by pirates! He and his brother Bartholomew made and sold maps.

    Columbus’s dream
    People in Europe wanted to find a new sea route east, to trade with Asia. They wanted to send ships to India, China and the East Indies.

    The Portuguese tried sailing South, around Africa. It was a long way.

    Columbus wanted to sail west. Because maps of the time made the oceans look smaller than they are, Columbus hoped to reach China in a few days. He needed money to make his dream come true.

    Columbus sets sail

    Help from a Queen
    Columbus tried to persuade rich people to help him. Most laughed at him.

    At last, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain gave him money for ships. In return he promised them new lands, spices. gold and new people to rule.

    Columbus sails
    Columbus set sail on 3 August 1492. He had three ships: the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. They were wooden ships with sails. There were about 90 men in the ships.

    Food for the voyage was kept in the ship’s hold. The men took salted fish in barrels, cheese, wine, water, live pigs and chickens.

    Life on the ships
    The sailors worked shifts. The time for each shift was measured using a half-hour glass. The men had no cabins, but slept on deck. Every morning, they said prayers.

    The ships let in water all the time. The men had to work pumps, to keep the ships afloat.

    Finding the way
    Columbus used a compass to help him navigate. He used a traverse board to plot (mark) the direction they wanted to sail in.

    The voyage took longer than Columbus expected. There was no land, just ocean. The men got scared. They were running out of food and water. After 36 days, a sailor on the Pinta spotted an island. On 12 October 1492 the explorers went ashore. Columbus called the island San Salvador. It was in the Bahamas .

    What Columbus discovered

    A New World
    Columbus sailed on to Cuba and Hispaniola. He explored a world new to Europeans. People later called it the New World.

    Native Americans
    Native American people lived on the islands. Columbus called them ‘Indians’, because he thought he’d landed in ‘the Indies’ (Asia).

    At first the Native Americans were pleased to see the visitors. Columbus gave them cheap presents and bells. But he also claimed their islands for Spain!

    Shipwreck
    On Christmas night 1492 the Santa Maria was wrecked. It hit a reef .

    The other two ships sailed home. Columbus left 40 men behind. He took some captive Native Americans with him. He landed in Spain in March 1493.

    Second voyage
    Columbus soon went back to rescue his men. This time, he took 17 ships. But all the men left behind were dead.

    What happened to Columbus?

    Columbus in disgrace
    Spain ruled the lands Columbus had found. On his third voyage, Columbus saw South America for the first time. But he came home in disgrace. His enemies said he had ruled Hispaniola to make himself rich. He was sent back to Spain in chains. But the king and queen set him free.

    Native Americans made slaves
    People from Europe sailed to America to start colonies. Some wanted to make the Native Americans become Christians.

    The Europeans began treating the Native Americans badly. They made many of them work as slaves.

    Columbus dies
    Columbus sailed to America for a fourth time in 1502. He was still hoping to land in China. This time he explored Central America. His ships were too leaky to sail home, so he had to wait a year before being rescued.

    When Columbus got back to Spain, he was a sick man. He died in 1506.

    How Columbus changed history

    Other explorers
    Other explorers followed Columbus. In 1497-98, John Cabot sailed from England to North America. In 1501 Amerigo Vespucci from Italy sailed to South America. ‘America’ was named after him. People knew that the New World was not Asia, but a new continent .

    How Columbus changed history
    Columbus and his sailors sailed bravely into the unknown. Columbus did not give up, even when people laughed at his ideas.

    Explorers brought home gold, new foods and new knowledge. However, they brought misery to many Native Americans. The Europeans took their land. Many Native Americans were killed in wars with the Europeans, or died from European diseases.

    The mission of Foto.com is to offer exceptional photo printing and finishing quality at the lowest possible prices. Because of this, Foto.com has decided to supplement its ‘money back guarantee ‘ (quality guarantee) with an additional price guarantee.

    Should you find better prices elsewhere, please contact us and we will match them. All quoted prices must be like-for-like with VAT, postage (first class mail), administrative and packaging costs included.

If you are not satisfied, you simply contact our customer support team within 2 weeks of receiving your order.

    Your photos will be sent back to you in either a rigid plastic packaging or an extra thick carton box (depending on the size of your order).

    When contacting customer support, please send a picture illustrating any claim, as an attachment to your email.

    All available payment methods :

    At Foto.com, quality is our priority.

    The steps we take during our stringent quality controls are adapted to each item type in order to guarantee customer satisfaction.

    The commitment to quality is made possibly by the staff and management’s commitment to.

    Nissan Altima

    Nissan Altima

    Swimming against the crossover tide.

    2017 Nissan Altima Nissan Altima 2017 3.0 1.0 5.0

    No doubt about it—if you think the roads and parking lots are filling up with tall, view-blocking crossovers and SUVs, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. The four-door mid-size sedan, once the dominant form of family transport, has lost favor. Call it a sedan recession.

    Nissan wants no part of that for its fifth-generation Altima —even if the sales surge of its own Murano. Pathfinder. and Rogue crossover SUVs is contributing to the sedan slide. The Altima is still the bestselling product in Nissan’s lineup, and so far this year, it’s just ahead of the Honda Accord for second-place sales honors in that segment (the Toyota Camry remains number one).

    Energetic Flow

    The fifth-gen Altima was all-new in 2013. so this update leaves the sedan’s bones largely untouched. The big change is the move to “Energetic Flow” styling, which consists of a more muscular front fascia, Nissan’s “V-motion” grille (which looks like a grille overhanging another grille), and boomerang-shaped headlights and taillights.

    The likely theory being that if crossovers are selling like hotcakes, then adding some Murano visuals to the Altima should spur sales of the sedan. It doesn’t stop there: Energetic Flow design is now found on the newly excited surfaces of the smaller and soberer Sentra and on the more expressive and expansive Maxima.

    In the cabin, the 2016 Altima’s refresh centers on expanding available technology, as well as hushing unwanted noise with added sound insulation and an acoustic laminated windshield. The Altima’s already pleasing interior gets a Murano-inspired center stack and console, but otherwise the materials, textures, and colors from the previous model continue. Particularly welcome are the Altima’s well-padded door armrests and form-fitting “zero gravity” front buckets—cloth-covered in our SV test car—that seem to comfortably accommodate a wide spectrum of posteriors.

    Rear passengers don’t get the form fitting “Zero Gravity” seats, but ingress and egress into the Altima’s aft quarters is easy at least. Rear-seat headroom and legroom, while not as generous as that in the Volkswagen Passat. are mid-size-sedan appropriate. Six-footers can ride in back without asking the front-seat occupants to scoot their chairs forward. Fold-down rear seatbacks add cargo space for long items, expanding the 15-cubic-foot trunk, which otherwise is average for the segment.

    All but the base Altima come with a 5.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment. The system has handy knobs for volume and tuning flanking the screen, plus a few virtual buttons on the display and hard buttons alongside. Even better is the 7.0-inch unit that was in our test car—it comes with the navigation package, which is a $580 option on the mid-level SV and range-topping SL. The larger screen gives easier access to all of the mobile apps available in the NissanConnect system. For those buyers who want the latest in connected tech, the lack of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is a glaring omission, although Apple users can access their phone’s voice recognition through the vehicle, a function called Siri Eyes Free. Still, with a market bursting with 8.0-, 9.0-, and even 12.0-inch screens, the Altima’s seem small.

    Last year’s port-injected, 2.5-liter four-cylinder returns with only minor changes, none affecting its performance. New engine mounts and a larger muffler help minimize engine drone, yet despite great-looking standard dual exhausts on all models, there’s no music coming out of them to quicken the pulse. In our testing, the 182-hp 2.5-liter’s 8.2-second zero-to-60-mph dash came up a bit short compared with the Chevrolet Malibu 1.5 LT (8.0), the Honda Accord Sport (7.6), the Mazda 6 i Touring (7.3), and the Toyota Camry SE (8.0). The 2.5’s mission is fuel economy, which improved to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city and 39 mpg highway for 2016 thanks in part to aerodynamic tweaks and standard grille shutters. For more performance, Nissan still offers the 270-hp 3.5-liter V-6. Over two weeks of being subjected to our admittedly lead-footed editorial-staff evaluation, we averaged 26 mpg.

    Xtronically Yours

    The Altima’s continuously variable automatic transmission, a key component to the car’s fuel-economy strategy, isn’t the complete downer these slushboxes once were. Nissan got into the CVT game early, and the Altima’s Xtronic CVT employs the third generation of its D-step Shift Logic, which under most circumstances simulates the gearchanges that happen in a traditional automatic transmission (up to seven “ratios”). There are brief moments when there seems to be little correlation between engine speed and throttle position, but much less droning is experienced than with CVTs of yore. Mostly, engine revs are exactly where they need to be to develop the power for any given road load and/or driving situation, with little or no delay. Drop the hammer from rest at a stoplight and the engine builds revs fairly naturally—it doesn’t just go roaring to redline and stay there until you lift. You’ll have to opt for the sportier Altima SR if you want shift paddles to manually row through the simulated gears.

    Overall, the Altima is quiet with little or no mechanical sounds or road or wind noise disturbing the peace. Its 36 decibels at idle is especially quiet for the class. But things get a tad grainy when cruising with light throttle around 50 mph as the engine drops to 1200 rpm under light load.

    Inside Track

    The 2016 refresh also includes new dampers and rear springs, which provide a pleasing-enough ride quality. Body motions are reasonably well controlled, and the Altima’s electrically assisted power steering is nicely weighted. Nissan has retuned the steering this year for quicker response. Despite relatively smallish 215/55R-17 tires on our SV test car, turn-in was crisp, aided in part by the standard pseudo torque-vectoring system that pulses the brake on the inside front wheel in corners to improve steering response. The Altima tracks true on-center with little need for constant corrections, although there could be a better sense of the steering weighting up in corners.

    Skidpad grip with the SV’s fuel-economy-optimized tires was a middling 0.81 g—down from the last Altima 2.5 we tested in 2013. The brakes inspired confidence with crisp top-of-the-pedal response, although the 192-foot stopping distance we measured from 70 mph (with some fade) is worse than the performance of its rivals.

    Safe Bet

    Within the Altima lineup, think of the SV we tested as the sensible-shoes choice. It comes standard with most of the equipment buyers seem to want, such as aluminum wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power driver’s seat with power lumbar adjustment, a touchscreen audio system with SiriusXM satellite radio, a backup camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, and remote engine start. It also includes rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring, advanced safety features that cost extra or are not even available in some competing mid-size sedans. All the better to spot those increasing numbers of crossovers and SUVs, closing in fast.
