Keep Your Toyota Looking Great With Toyota Accessories

Toyotas are dependable, affordable cars. But let's face it... there are an awful lot of them on the road. Don't you want your Toyota to stand out? Toyota accessories are a great way to do just that! They are an easy, cost-effective way to make sure your car reflects you.

Some products are for show and some products have a practical purpose in addition to their aesthetic appeal. For those who want their car to turn heads, there are numerous Toyota accessories to meet that need. For instance, rear bumper appliqués offer a level of customization and detail not provided on a car you purchase directly off the lot. Side moldings add a slight detail to the body of your car that makes a huge difference without putting a big dent in your wallet. And for those who want to go the extra mile, spoilers or many different heights and styles lend an air of sportiness and excitement to your Toyota.

Many accessories are not only attractive but useful as well. For instance, heavy duty embroidered floor mats look fantastic. But, they also serve a valuable purpose now and in the future. They protect your car's interior floor from damage and wear and they are easily removed for cleaning. Later on down the line, you will be glad you invested the money because the wear it saved on the interior of your car will be reflected in the resale value of the vehicle. Another great utilitarian Toyota accessory is the back-up camera available for certain Toyota models. This feature allows the driver of the car to see the area immediately behind the vehicle when the car is in reverse. This feature is invaluable. Not only do you increase visibility of areas you may be able to see by turning your head, but you will also be able to see areas of view that were previously hidden from sight. This is an incredibly useful safety feature, especially for those drivers who have children or live in areas where children are present.

For drivers who are satisfied with the standard safety features of the Toyota vehicles and already like the outer appearance of their car, there are interior upgrades that may be of interest. A common complaint for modern drivers is the amount of time they spend commuting. It only makes sense these days to upgrade the entertainment features of your Toyota in order to make the drive to and from work a pleasure rather than a chore. Consider upgrading your sound system. Higher quality speakers enhance the experience of listening to music in your Toyota. Also, there are options such as Bluetooth, hands-free cell phone usage. By merely purchasing a simple upgrade and having it installed, you will no longer have to worry about getting tickets for driving incidents caused by talking on your phone while you drive. This feature allows you to connect your blue-tooth enable cell phone to the car's stereo system. Another stereo system accessory is XM wireless radio. This is another simple feature to purchase and install that would offer hundreds of additional commercial-free stations to listen to while driving.

So, make your car more of a reflection of your personal taste and style by adding affordable Toyota accessories to your car.

The Camaro

The Camaro was introduced in 1967 as a competitor to the Ford Mustang. On June 28, 1966, General Motors held a press conference that would be the first ever to connect 14 cities by telephone lines. It was announced that GM would be producing a new car model named "Camaro", which was said to mean a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs. The first generation Camaro went on sale in dealerships on September 29, 1966. It was designed with rear wheel drive and the GM F body platform. You could choose from a coupe or a convertible. Since the Chevrolet Corvair had been criticized because of the rear engine design, the Camaro was made with the same rear-drive, front engine set up as the Mustang. This first generation model lasted from 1967 to 1969.

There were four generations of Camaro offered over the period of 35 years before Chevrolet took a break with the model. The second generation Camaro lasted from 1970 to 1981. It was very similar to its predecessor except it was much heavier because of the new larger, wider design. The 1971 SS350 was chosen by Road and Truck Magazine as being one of the top ten best cars on the planet.

The third generation Camaro was in production from the year 1982 to 1992. This model was the first in the Camaro line to offer fuel-injected automatic transmissions. It also boasted 16 inch wheels, a new hatchback body, and a standard 4 cylinder engine. In 1985 one of the most popular models of Camaro was introduced, called the IROC-Z. Also in this generation the 20th Anniversary Edition and the 25th Anniversary Heritage Package were up for grabs. Beginning in 1991, the "police" package became available.

The fourth generation Camaro was available from 1993 to 2002. The 93 model still had the same 2+2 seating and the choice for a coupe with an optional t-top or convertible style. A new, more powerful motor was introduced first as an option in 1995, and then became standard in 1996. Anti-lock brakes were standard in the Camaro as well in this generation. Unfortunately, due to a decrease in demand for sporty cars production was halted in 2002.

Confident of a comeback, production on the fifth generation of Camaro was approved in 2006. In the spring of 2009 the newest Camaro was introduced. It is offered as a coupe only in 3 different models; LT, LS, and SS. The LS and LT models are equipped with a 3.6 L V6 engine with either 6 speed manual or 6 speed automatic with manual shift transmission. The SS is equipped with a 6.2 L V8 engine with 6 speed manual shift. There is an optional RS package available for the LS and the SS models.

The Chevrolet Camaro has a rich history of success in the car industry. You can find the Camaro everywhere. They're on the street and on television and movies. As an example, in the 2007 movie Transformers, the Autobot Bumblebee starts out as a second generation 1976 Camaro but becomes a 2009 Concept Camaro.

So whether you like sporty, beautiful cars or just want to be the owner of an American icon, the Camaro is one of the best cars to choose from. There is well over 40 years of design and perfection invested in the Camaro, making it one of the best you can get.
