Ford Model T completely changed the way people drive cars, with the
Ford flathead V8 playing an integral role even though it is
technically not the first V8 to run super fast or the first
mass-produced version. But it was the first V8 that was easily

car that could go 60 mph! The name stems from the fact that the
valves are seated in the block and the head is a perfectly flat “lid”
that simply bolts onto the deck.
Duesenberg J is touted to be one of the most classic American cars to
be made. These regal, two-tonne locomotives of chrome and lacquer
paint were the pinnacle of the automotive world when new. There were
three versions of the 6.9L engine, made between 1928 and 1937. The
naturally aspirated version made an impressive 265 horsepower. But
Duesenberg also made 36 supercharged cars, and those made 320 hp
each; top speed of the supercharged ones were over 200 km/h. The SSJ
versions were exclusively made for Clark Gable and Gary Cooper with
supercharged engines delivering 400 hp.
at Cadillac made a valiant effort back in 1981, to design an engine
with cylinder deactivating capabilities. The V8-6-4, as it was
called, could eliminate or activate two cylinders at a time as power
requirements decreased or increased. However, the custom hydraulic
lifters were operated by solenoids that often failed, and when they
didn’t engage accordingly lifters would collapse and valves
couldn’t do their job. This made throttle hesitation a
major issue for the V8-6-4, and when cylinders were deactivated
enormous amounts of lag could be felt, especially in such a heavy

Very often I get asked what the down payment, monthly payment and interest rate will be and sometimes if they'll be approved on a car loan before the customer gives me a credit application.
So this is how financing Works.
Term: (number of months a vehicle can be financed) is determined mostly by miles and year of the vehicle and can range from 12-52 months for a pre-owned vehicle.
Monthly Payment: Your gross monthly income and debt to income ratio (how much you of your monthly income is already spent) will determine the maximum payment you can afford. Usually between 17%-20% of your gross monthly income.
When you factor in the interest rate you qualify for, the term the car can be financed for and the payment you can afford you get the Amount that can be Financed. The difference between your "Amount Financed" plus tax (minimum 10% of the total cost of the car) is your minimum down payment.
The more you put down, the lower your monthly payment can be and you’ll lose less cash to interest.
