There is no day more American than The 4th of July. Likewise, there is no product more American than the automobile. We invented the car, we perfected the car, and we introduced the rest of the world to cars. So, it is only natural that cars play such a big role in the celebration of The 4th of July.
Whether you live in a city of millions or a town of a few hundreds, odds are you are not far from a local 4th of July Parade. Parades are full of marching bands, balloons, and all that other stuff nobody really pays attention to. The highlight of parades is always the floats. And, guess what powers those showstoppers? Cars! I bet you knew that though. You seem like a smart person.
Guess what also transports the grand marshal of the parade, or the local beauty pageant winner? Yup, still a car. Sensing a theme here?

Thanksgiving is almost here! You know what that means: family, turkey, food, drinks, football and for many of us it also means long road trips.
