Keep your car vs. buying a new one? No Brainer

Buying a new car might sound cool and exciting, but keeping your current vehicle, and continually maintaining it at recommended intervals, makes more economic sense than purchasing a new one, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

“From the down payment to the monthly car payments and higher insurance rates, the cost of buying a new car adds up really fast,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “By simply budgeting the equivalent of just one new car payment, you could cover an entire year’s worth of basic maintenance on your current vehicle and redirect the rest to beef up savings, take a vacation, or pay off credit card debt, college loans and other bills.”

JASPER Products Are Everywhere!

These days JASPER products can be found just about anywhere. Just ask Roman’s Design, a California-based business specializing in custom-built machinery.

Roman’s most recent activity involves the Royal Canadian Air Cadets with a contract for 11 glider launching systems as part of their glider training program.

The launcher is a single winch drum built on a solid steel frame. It's powered by a JASPER Remanufactured International 7.3L diesel engine producing 325 horsepower. When placed at the end of a runway, or field, the 6,700 pound system can pull a tethered glider into the air at speeds in excess of 80 mph.

JASPER, Continuous Growth!

The new PODs are incorporating LED overhead lighting, expanded work areas and improved product flow for optimal production.
