This is about the favorite car color in the world.  According to http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/item_KVm4xkW7zwD4MTH0b9Dz3K, for nine straight years, silver is the most popular car and truck color in the world.  Silver as in gray and charcoal too. The next is white, then black. In the United States gray is the favorite color for motorcycles too. I think that is pretty cool. I like gray too. Also my dadÕs truck is gray/silver, and my momÕs car is white, so no wonder.

 

This section of my report is about an amazing car door! Jatech LLC (http://www.disappearing-car-door.com/) says that these doors disappear underneath the car. They are amazing! When you open the doors the people around you will be surprised and exited! They are pretty cool! I think that it would be a cool gadget to have on my car.

 

This section is about how cars effect the environment. http://www.greenercars.org/guide_environment.htm says the cars today affect the world a lot by having things that don't recycle. It leaves lots of things in the junkyard. Many things can be recycled from a car, but there are also a lot of things that don't. I wish there was some way to change that.

 

 

 

History

 

This paragraph is about the improvements of the car. Zach Jacobs (http://www.artipot.com/articles/443123/cars-have-improved-over-the-years.htm) says that the first car invented was a lot simpler then our right now. When people started to drive it very uncomfortable because the roads were very rough. They started adjusting and improving it very quickly. IÕm glad that people have improved it a lot!

Future

This snippet is about some of the possibilities that could happen to the ÔcarÕ at anytime.   According to Dan Carney  (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30350078/ns/technology_and_science-tech_and_gadgets/) The car can improve anytime right now and there are lots of ideas flying around. Someone just has to turn them into reality. Some ideas are making the car fly and/or swim. I think that anyone could make them real if they wanted to. So people, think!

 

 

Conclusion

So now you should know what disappears on the car. Pretty cool, huh? Anyway, I hoped you enjoyed my report. P.S. I won the contest if you didnÕt know what it was in the beginning. =)
