During the early 1900s, all vehicles competing in organized motorsport events were required to be painted with an auto racing color that indicated the nationality of the car or driver, the competitor in a race. Often, these colors were quite different from the ones used in politics or other sports. When Britain first competed in 1902, they had to pick a different color from the national flag colors of red, blue, and white only because these colors had already been taken by the USA, Germany, and France.

“The use of distinctive colors of nationality is compulsory when the supplementary regulations of the competition require it. These colors are determined by the nationality of the competitor,” according to the Code Sportif International (C.S.I.) of the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (F.I.A.).

Furthermore, every component part of a car had to be manufactured in the country – participant in a race; the driver also had to be a national of that same country.

“One of the conditions of the race is that the cars must be the absolute production of their respective nationalities. This rule is rigid, and cannot be evaded. The application of it handicapped England in the first years of the contest, for the art of manufacturing the electric coil, the most vital part of the machinery, in which the French were adepts[sic], was only acquired by England recently. With such tremendous international trade issues depending upon the result, it will be readily understood how keen will be the struggle,” according to this 1903 article.

But who came up with these rules in the first place?
British Racing - yes this is really a color! Please check our little walk down the history lane to find out how and when this came to be a color. Thanks!

Car shipping costs vary and the price depends on several factors. When transporting a vehicle the first you think about is the cost, so the common answer to “How much does it cost to ship a car?” is “It depends.” It really does depend because of distance, vehicle make and model, modification to the vehicle, whether it will be shipped via open or enclosed carrier and so on. All these factors apply when calculating average car shipping rates.

Factors Affecting Your Auto Transport Rate!

Make and Model
Vehicle Condition
Type of Transport
Distance / Miles
Location / Population
Supply / Demand

The cost to ship a car depends mainly on these factors, supply/demand often being the most important. Every year seasonality affects prices on certain routes such as the Florida routes. The snowbirds moving season is every winter and spring; this is the time snowbirds moving to the southern states affect vehicle transport prices. In winter snowbirds travel south to escape the cold weather of the northern states, and then in the spring they come back north to escape the scorching heat of the states. This happens every year not only on Florida routes, but many other southern states routes. Moreover, supply/demand affects prices daily on all US routes. What this means is that the number of vehicles being shipped on a certain route will affect the price of shipping. A customer competes with other customers for a spot on the carrier, and usually a better paying vehicle will be scheduled first. When there are many vehicles waiting to be shipped, as in the case of New York – California route, prices go up and if you pay the current market price your vehicle will be shipped first. However, if you are ok with waiting a few extra days you can get a discounted price. The fact is that this is on of the major factors causing prices fluctuations.

Additionally, whether your vehicle is operable or inoperable, this also affects the price. A vehicle that does not moves on its own power will require a fork lift to load and unload, or a winch which not every truck has. This will of course increase the price. Location is also very important factor that affects the cost of shipping a vehicle. If you live in a rural area where there is no major city nearby, or major highway, this means very few trucks will be passing by. Most trucks go to major cities with big population, where the chance of being fully loaded is higher than near a small town. Therefore, it will cost more for a truck to go off the major road and away from a major city. Whether you choose open or enclosed carrier affects the price as well. The most popular type of transport is open trailer and because most carriers in the US are open the price is lower. Enclosed carriers, besides offering more protection, are only about ten percent of all car shipping trucks and this means longer wait and higher price. These types of covered trucks are usually booked for classic, sports and luxury automobiles.

Living in a city that is designed to make us less car dependent, will not only allow us to access different locations more easily, but also improve our health. According to Hall and Pain, “such developments conform to the requirements of service and information-based economies. Settlements of this scale would also be linked together to form agglomerations of polycentric cities, with clear hierarchies that would allow a close proximity of everyday facilities and high levels of accessibility to higher order activities.” In order for this to be achieved, everyone involved must do their best so that the collective community’s desire is achieved faster and what Banister says turns into reality sooner than we think.

According to a report by the American Automobile Association (AAA) published on October 8, 2015, 35 percent of Americans “skipped or delayed service or repairs that were recommended by a mechanic or specified by the factory maintenance schedule,” consequently raising the number of roadside breakdowns that would have been easily prevented if everyone adhered to a vehicle maintenance guide and listened to their mechanic’s advice.
What many of us don’t realize is that avoiding car maintenance and repairs can cost a hefty amount of money in the long run. AutoMD has generously shared some car maintenance “must-dos” to help you avoid paying the price of skipping:
For most Americans, a car is their second biggest investment. Nevertheless, many have been putting off car maintenance and repairs. Why?

G.H. Garrett, Stanley Meyer, Genepax, Genesis World Energy, Hydrogen Technology Applications, Inc, among many others. What do all these names have in common? All of them believed in the idea of using water as a fuel based on the simple process of electrolisys. Scientists, engineers, green planet enthusiasts, superheroes for some and charlatans for others. Their work would bring them up to euphoric heights and down to humiliating defeats. Their inventions attracted believers, investors, and eventually legal trouble. Today, there is growing interest in the possibility of turning water into fuel, but it remains unclear how much of it is true science and how much is science fiction.

The studies on the electrolytic separation of water date back to the 19th century. Today, electrolysis is used to create a small amount of hydrogen in power plants, to produce certain elements, and to produce oxygen breathed by astronauts in space. Electrolysis is taught in middle-school science labs: electricity flows through water cracking the molecules and filling test tubes with oxygen and hydrogen bubbles. A match is lighted and volatile gases explode to prove that water was separated into its components. But if it was all that simple, if simple electrolisys worked we would have water-powered cars already. Based on the existing laws of thermodynamics that skeptics rely on, it takes exactly the same amount of energy to separate hydrogen and oxygen atoms inside the electrolysis cell as you get back when they recombine inside a fuel cell. Hence, in order to make a car run on water one really needs to find a way to make a deal with both the Law of Conservation of Energy and the First Law of Electrolysis.

The first water carburetor was introduced in 1935 by G.H.Garrett. On September 8, 1935 The Dallas Morning News first announced that the water concept worked, at least for few minutes. Garrett’s working model operated a four-cylinder engine for several minutes in the demonstration at varying speeds and with several starts and stops. According to Garrett, water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen by passage of an electric current through it from electrodes immersed in water. Hydrogen collects at the negative pole and oxygen at the positive. The hydrogen is mixed with air and introduced directly into the cylinders. Garrett claimed instant start in any weather, no fire hazards, and plenty of power and speed. The car was never marketed, and no one seemed to know its ultimate destiny.

So, tax season is here again. Thinking about taxes brings those mixed feelings of love and hate all at once. You are probably getting excited about getting some money back, yet you have to go through hell, a.k.a. tax return procedures, in order to get a hold of them. And actually in many cases, most truckers do no get money back, but rather pay.

As a trucker you get to “enjoy” an even more complicated process of sorting your taxes out, with all the deductions and tax exemptions, and what falls into which category. If it’s your first time going into the tax season as a trucker, or even if you have experience with it, check out our little guide below and feel free to share some personal experiences and advice.

Tax season guide:

Deadlines!

Form 2290 can be filed from July 1st through June 30th and it has to be filed for the month that the taxable vehicle was first used on public highways during the above mentioned period.
For instance, if your vehicle was first used on a public highway in July, file Form 2290 between July 1st and August 31st
If you used your vehicle for the first time on a public highway after July, the tax for the current tax season will be prorated and Form 2290 should be filed the last day of the month following the month in which the vehicle was first used.

More information on the IRS website.

Make sure you have all the information needed ready to go:

Employer Identification Number (EIN), a.k.a. Federal Tax ID number; if you don’t have one, you can apply here, it should take about two weeks for it to be circulating in the IRS system
You must use your name control (here you can find more information on what this is) and it must match your EIN
Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of each vehicle (if more than one)
Taxable gross weight of each vehicle. You can calculate each vehicle’s tax based on its taxable gross weight by using the Tax Computation Table on page two of Form 2290 (Heavy Highway Vehicle Use tax Return)

Time to file:

You want faster processing? – Use the IRS E-File system – it’s easy, convenient and most of all – not complicated. By using the e-file procedure, you can get your watermark Schedule 1 (it works as a proof for the payment of your tax liabilities) within minutes. If you happen to be filing for more than 25 vehicles at once, then it is mandatory to use e-file.
If you decide to file the good old paper way, you have to complete Form 2290 and send it to one of the following addresses:

Form 2290 with full payment:

Internal Revenue Service
P.O. Box 804525
Cincinnati, OH 45280-4525

Form 2290 without payment due or using EFTPS for payment:

Department of the Treasury
Internal Revenue Service
Cincinnati, OH 45999-0031

Here you can find specific instructions on how, when and where to file your Form 2290. After the IRS has received your Form 2290, you can expect to get your stamped Schedule 1 within 6 weeks.

How to pay? – there are several ways for you to complete your tax payment:

If you are filing with e-file, then you can schedule an electronic funds withdrawal to authorize a direct debit from your account
Another way will be to go through the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) – enrollment in advance is required and if you have just created an account, it can take 5-7 work days for it to take place
Let’s not forget the Check or Money Order option by using the Form 2290-V Payment Voucher and mail it to:

Internal Revenue Service
P.O. Box 804525
Cincinnati, OH 45280-4525

As a truck driver, you should not forget to do your deductions. Below is an example of some:

Fees
Electronics
Association dues
Cleaning supplies
Office supplies
Medical exams
Postage fees
Trucking and business related subscriptions
Uniforms
Supplies – cab curtains, fridge, bedding, etc.

It is important to have your deductions sorted out right, it is bad to skip some of the deductions that you could have included, but it is even worse to have too many included because you can easily end up with an audit and have to pay even more than you would have originally.

Here are some examples of non-deductible expenses:

Any expense that is reimbursed by your employer
Non-uniform clothing, i.e. your own clothes
Commuting costs, such as parking, tolls, fuel, etc.
Anything personal – vacations, home, loans, etc.

Here you can find a more exhaustive list of the truck drivers’ tax deductions.

If you happen to be running late on your tax return filing, remember that you can always extend the application deadline – it is easy and no one will ask you “why” you need an extension. All you have to do is fill out Form 7004 (for your business tax) and Form 4648 (for your personal tax).

Whatever the case, don’t forget that you are required to keep record of all your previously returned 2290s and Schedule 1s for a period of three years, as IRS can request an audit at any point. And of course, if you feel that this might be a bit uphill for you, consider hiring a tax professional, it can save you a lot of time and worries.

What is your experience with taxes? Was it easy to get your taxes back as a trucker or you had some struggles? Do you have any advice for young truckers?
Taxes are a necessary evil. So, we have put together a short and sweet truckers tax preparation guide. Read and learn, and share. Thanks!
