Choking Dog

choking-dog-cartoonA highly timid little man, ventured into a biker bar in the Bronx and clearing his throat asked, “Um, err,which of you gentlemen owns the Doberman tied outside to the parking meter?” A giant of a man, wearing biker leathers, his body hair growing out through the seams, turned slowly on his stool, looked down at the quivering little man and said, “It’s my dog. Why?” “Well,” squeaked the little man, obviously very nervous, “I believe my dog just killed it, sir.” “What?” roared the big man in disbelief. “What in the hell kind of dog do you have?” “Sir,” answered the little man, “It’s a four week old puppy.” “Bull!” roared the biker, “How could your puppy kill my Doberman?” “It appears that he choked on it, sir.”

Benefits of Car Customization

Of course modifying and customizing your car will improve the way it looks, but actually its benefits go beyond the appearance. By customizing your car or bringing it to Dallas performance shops, you make it into a vehicle that you obviously want. You make it into car that fits your needs or preferences. Basically, customizing your car will make it unique from other cars and it would give you a sense of fulfillment. Though, it may sound like an egotistical benefit, it is still provides a sense of fulfillment.

Customizing your car’s performance would bring out more power than ever before. The car can tow more weight or perhaps go faster than it used to be. Improving the performance may also improve the car’s steering, handling and breaking, which will contribute to the vehicle and the passenger’s safety. Improving the suspension would also provide better shock absorption and further contribute to passenger comfort.

Car customization may also lead to better fuel economy. This is possible through the engine modifications you can have for your car or replacing cars with low rolling resistance tires. Aerodynamic modifications and weight modifications can also be a contributing factor. The idea of this customization is to stretch the usage of gas and make sure nothing is wasted. Although it is possible to economize in fuel consumption by customizing your car, fuel efficiency would still depend on how well you maintain your car and how disciplined are you in driving it on the road.

Sometimes, customizing your car will help you get lower insurance premiums. Most of the time, heavily customized cars aren’t driven daily. Because of this, they aren’t registered or insured like regular vehicles and insurance companies would consider them as recreational vehicles. Because of this, the insurance premiums for these cars are lower compared to regular cars. Thus, it is possible to save a lot when it comes to insurance premiums.

Most of all, customizing your car may make it more comfortable for you. You can put more convenient features to your car like additional cup holders, more relaxing and supportive car seats and better cooling and heating system. Sometimes, additional customized features will not just provide comfort to the passengers but also make the driving experience easier like having GPS systems and sensors that would help monitor the surroundings.
