CABDA West, opening Wednesday, boasts pre-registration of more than 1,100 retailers

DEL MAR, Calif. (BRAIN) — With gray skies and rain in the forecast, CABDA show director Jim Kersten may not have gotten the balmy Southern California welcome he hoped for as he set up for the inaugural CABDA West expo here in San Diego County this week. But he certainly took comfort in dealer pre-registration numbers ahead of Wednesday’s show opening — 1,150 attendees from 410 shops.

“When we first started putting this together I was going to be happy with 275 shops, so I’m very impressed with the turnout we’re getting. I knew we weren’t going to replicate Chicago numbers immediately our first at-bat out here, but it’s definitely better than I thought it was going to be,” Kersten said.

Many of those dealers are concentrated in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties, but Kersten said retailers as far away as Denver, Salt Lake City and the Phoenix

The Automotive Industry Gears Up To Navigate The New Normal

Beyond the immediate question of ‘how long’ is the more existential question of ‘what next’? As I see it, the main questions for the mobility industry to address as it begins its comeback from the COVID-19 crisis are, firstly, will there be opportunities for future growth and, if so, where will they be? Secondly, what will be the ‘new normal’ and how will this play into new strategic roadmaps? Thirdly, how can stakeholders navigate through a recessionary period that could last from anywhere between two to four quarters depending on the duration and severity of the pandemic?  

Setting the Scene: From How Long To What Next?

Frost & Sullivan’s ongoing analysis of real-time data reveals that two scenarios could ensue:  Severe Pandemic and Global Emergency with outcomes ranging from gradual recovery to recession, respectively.

Automotive Hungary – HUNGEXPO

The 8th AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY International Trade Exhibition for Automotive Industry Suppliers will be organized in 19 – 22 October 2020 in HUNGEXPO Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center.

Meetings and collaborations may have never been as important in the industry as they are in today’s structural transformation. In these circumstances, it’s very difficult to make a well-informed investment decision; you need to collect information and conduct personal meetings. Our goal is to help Hungarian suppliers and service providers involved in all levels of the automotive industry to meet at this exhibition. It’s very important for them to retain or, hopefully, to improve their positions attained in the supplier chain, despite the ongoing changes.

The AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY is to bring together domestic and international suppliers and service providers of the automotive industry at all levels.

We are lookinkg forward to meeting You as a participant in this event!

Access to transportation and health care utilization in a rural region. – PubMed


Access to transportation to transverse the large distances between residences and health services in rural settings is a necessity. However, little research has examined directly access to transportation in analyses of rural health care utilization.


This analysis addresses the association of transportation and health care utilization in a rural region.


Using survey data from a sample of 1,059 households located in 12 western North Carolina counties, this analysis tests the relationship of different transportation measures to health care utilization while adjusting for the effects of personal characteristics, health characteristics, and distance.


Those who had a driver’s license had 2.29 times more health care visits for chronic care and 1.92 times more visits for regular checkup care than those who did not. Respondents who had family or friends who could provide transportation had 1.58 times more visits for chronic care than those who did not. While not

Cancun Airport Transportation: Cancun Airport Transfers

We are an official ground transportation company, with more than 8 years offering safe, reliable and cheap Cancun Airport Transportation, Transfers, Private Shuttle, Private Tours and more transportation services to the main destinations like Cancun Hotel Zone, Cancun Downtown, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Akumal, Puerto Juarez and any hotel in the Riviera Maya.

We only offer private transfers, since with the shared shuttle you will have to wait scheduled times or other passengers, also you will make multiple stops before reaching your hotel, so your travel time will be longer on the shared shuttle service, and with the public buses (like ADO), you will need to form in long lines, wait to scheduled hours and the bus will leave you at a terminal, from that you will have to improvise to reach your hotel no matter how far would be.

Automotive design – Wikipedia

Automotive design is the process of developing the appearance, and to some extent the ergonomics, of motor vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, buses, coaches, and vans.

The functional design and development of a modern motor vehicle is typically done by a large team from many different disciplines included within automotive engineering, however, design roles are not associated with requirements for Professional or Chartered-Engineer qualifications. Automotive design in this context is primarily concerned with developing the visual appearance or aesthetics of the vehicle, though it is also involved in the creation of the product concept. Automotive design as a professional vocation[1] is practiced by designers who may have an art background and a degree in industrial design or transportation design.
Terminology used in the field is found in the glossary of automotive design.

This Is Jeremy Clarkson’s Vehicle Of Choice For The Apocalypse

Earlier today, Jeremy Clarkson took to the internet airwaves for some trivia questions on Drivetribe’s YouTube channel. We carried the hour-long pub quiz here at, though admittedly we started to lose some interest when, about 25 minutes in, a true/false question came up asking if hair and fingernails continue to grow after you die. Really? Yeah, really.

There were some entertaining moments that were classically Clarkson, one of which came at the 34-minute mark. While answering questions from viewers, the inevitable question of apocalypse vehicles came up. What would Clarkson drive in a post-apocalyptic world? Sorry, Mad Max fans – it won’t be a V8 interceptor. Rather surprisingly, he dips into the world of Richard Hammond and chooses not a matte-black semi-truck, or an armored-up Audi, or even a Porsche 928 fitted with an oddly offensive license plate of random letters and numbers.

Instead, he picked the Bowler
