Maury Alliance President Wil Evans said: “This is an exciting time for our community. Fuel Total Systems will provide excellent job opportunities for citizens in Maury County and across the region. We are thankful that the company has decided to locate here and understand that this is a statement to the quality workforce that Maury County offers. We also deeply appreciate the hard work on the part of many people and organizations that have led to this day. Without our partnership with organizations such as the City of Mount Pleasant, the Maury County IDB, Mount Pleasant Power Systems and the Maury County Commission, projects such as this could not happen.”
The Toyota Hybrid System II (THS II) also includes supporting members such an E-CVT for the transmission and a 6.5 Ah nickel-metal hydride battery located under the rear seat. The latter allows for a lower centre of gravity without compromising luggage space, but the fuel tank size holds 10 litres less fuel compared to non-hybrid Camry variants (60 litres). On a related note, the hybrid versions are compatible with E20 ethanol fuel.
This new model is unmistakeable GS. The cylinder heads still extend far beyond your feet, engine bars are all-consuming and that asymmetrical headlight sits atop a short beak. As far as looks go, this is but a refinement, and a successful one at that. The new GS somehow manages to look both more aggressive and stylish at the same time, especially in the Rallye and TE Exclusive editions – the latter boasting a smart black, grey and yellow colour scheme, and the former gold wheels and a colour-coded bench seat.

In a past life I got to drive a rally-prepped Toyota Corolla rally car up in the Pacific Northwest. It was absolutely incredible, one of the best cars I’ve ever wheeled. Here’s one that’s even better and it’s for sale. How much better? Well, this one’s seller is asking $20,000.
Though sports car purists might scoff at the BMW 8 Series’ large footprint and considerable 2-plus-ton curb weight, enthusiasts might be surprised to find that the big Bimmer coupe comports itself rather efficiently and effectively at speed. Lapping sessions at the Estoril circuit in Portugal revealed a surprising ability to devour corners, thanks in part to the sophisticated active suspension, 4-wheel steering, and electronic differentials which route power to the appropriate wheels in order to maximize grip and acceleration. Though it might not be able to keep up in corners with smaller, lighter performance benchmarks like the Porsche 911 or Aston Martin V8 Vantage — some of which are a staggering 1,000 pounds or so lighter — the M850i counterpunches with active electronics which help it fight the laws of physics, a rock-solid chassis, and copious power which, along with a smooth-shifting transmission, help it cover large expanses of tarmac quite quickly.
Stand in your kitchen and arrange four slices of bread on the floor in approximately the same way as your car tires touch the ground. Stand back, fold arms, observe. Those four patches are about the same as the contact points between a cold road and your 3,500 pounds of rolling iron, glass and plastic. Those little squares are all that keeps your car adhered to the road. Wouldn’t you want those points to be the best they can be? Only winter tires can do that. All-seasons are, in truth, three-season tires. True winter tires — those with the snowflake symbol on the sidewall and on dedicated winter rims — are the only way to give your vehicle the traction it truly needs to avoid an accident this winter and protect your regular rims.
Christina Aguilera brings her voice Xtina is back. A recent conversation on the Houston 97.5 FM’s The Usual Suspects centered on why Christina Aguilera was booked to play a smaller venue like the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land when her name could carry weight in bigger venues like the Toyota Center. It’s a valid question. A big reason is because Aguilera has taken the last five or so years to have a child, stepping away from the hit music TV reality series, The Voice , in the process. But you can’t keep good pipes down for long. She’s on the comeback trail with this year’s album, Liberation , but it’ll be worth the money to hear her many hits, including ” Genie in a Bottle ,” ” Beautiful ,” ” Lady Marmalade ,” and ” Dirty .”
