Continental Tire North America - Driving With Low Tire Pressure.
El Salvador (Spanish: Republica de El Salvador, literally meaning "Republic of the Savior"; original name in Nahuatl was Cozcatlan) is the smallest and also the most densely populated country in Central America. It borders the Pacific Ocean between Guatemala and Honduras. It lies on the Gulf of Fonseca, as do Honduras and Nicaragua further south. It has a population of approximately 7.2 million people as of 2009. The capital city of San Salvador is, by some distance, the largest city of the republic. In 2001 El Salvador dropped its own currency, the colon, and adopted the U.S. dollar instead. History Before Spanish conquest Before the Spanish conquest, the area that now is El Salvador was composed of three great indigenous states and several principalities. The indigenous inhabitants were the Pipils, a tribe of the nomadic people of Nahua settled down for a long time in central Mexico. The region of the east was populated and governed by the Lencas. The North zone of the Lempa Hi River was populated and governed by the Chortis, a Mayan people. Early in their history, the Pipil became one of the few Mesoamerican indigenous groups to abolish human sacrifice. Otherwise, their culture was similar to that of their Aztec and Maya neighbors. Remains of Nahua culture are still found at ruins such as Tazumal (near Chalchuapa), San Andres, and Joya de Ceren (north of Colon). Spanish conquest The first Spanish attempt to subjugate this area failed in 1524, when Pedro de Alvarado was forced to retreat by Pipil warriors. In 1525, he returned and succeeded in bringing the district under control of the Captaincy General of Guatemala, which retained its authority until 1821, despite an abortive revolution in 1811. It was Alvarado who named the district for El Salvador ("The Savior.") Independece The first "shout of independence" in El Salvador came in 1811, at the hands of criollo elite. Many intellectuals and merchants had grown tired of the overpowering control that Spain still had in the American colonies, and were interested in expanding their export markets to Britain and the United States. The Indigenous uprisings aimed at Spanish subjugation plagued the territory at this time, and they were re-interpreted by the Republicans to serve their purpose and show popular support for independence. Thus a movement grew amongst the middle class criollo and mestizo classes. Ultimately, the 1811 declaration of independence failed when the vice royalty of Guatemala sent troops to San Salvador in order to crush the movement. However, the momentum was not lost and many of the people involved in the 1811 movement became involved in the 1821 movement. In 1821, El Salvador and the other Central American provinces declared their independence from Spain. When these provinces were joined with Mexico in early 1822, El Salvador resisted, insisting on autonomy for the Central American countries. Guatemalan troops sent to enforce the union were driven out of El Salvador in June 1822. El Salvador, fearing incorporation into Mexico, petitioned the United States Government for statehood. But in 1823, a revolution in Mexico ousted Emperor Agustin de Iturbide, and a new Mexican congress voted to allow the Central American provinces to decide their own fate. That year, the United Provinces of Central America was formed of the five Central American states under Gen. Manuel Jose Arce. In 1832, Anastasio Aquino led an indigenous revolt against creoles and mestizos in Santiago Nonualco, a small town in the province of San Vicente. The source of the discontent of the indigenous people was lack of land to cultivate. The problem of land distribution has been the source of many political conflicts in Salvadoran history. The Central American federation was dissolved in 1838 and El Salvador became an independent republic. Geography El Salvador is located in Central America. It has a total area of 8,123 square miles (21,040 km?) (about the size of New Jersey). It is the smallest country in continental America and is affectionately called the "Tom Thumb of the Americas" ("Pulgarcito de America"). It has 123.6 square miles (320 km?) of water within its borders. Several small rivers flow through El Salvador into the Pacific Ocean, including the Goascoran, Jiboa, Torola, Paz and the Rio Grande de San Miguel. Only the largest river, the Lempa River, flowing from Guatemala and Honduras across El Salvador to the ocean, is navigatable for commercial traffic. Volcanic craters enclose lakes, the most important of which are Lake Ilopango (70 km?/27 sq mi) and Lake Coatepeque (26 km?/10 sq mi). Lake Guija is El Salvador's largest natural lake (44 km?/17 sq mi). Several artificial lakes were created by the damming of the Lempa, the largest of which is Embalse Cerron Grande (135 km?). El Salvador shares borders with Guatemala and Honduras. It is the only Central American country that does not have a Caribbean coastlinBustleback Cadillac Seville
In the middle seventies, with gasoline in short supply, Cadillac introduced the "international size" Seville, a smaller sedan based on a Chevrolet Nova chassis that aimed to be more fuel efficient and more nimble than the luxury boats Cadillac was famous for. It was a beautiful car. But then they followed it up with. . . this!! The second-generation Seville looked like no other Cadillac or GM car, thanks to its distinctive "bustleback" trunk. Even though many people found it to be as ridiculous as the fake spare tire bulges on Lincolns, and even though Cadillac was criticized for abandoning the original Seville's unpretentious design, it was a hit with Cadillac's regular customers - retirees in Florida and people who dressed like retirees in Florida - and it was in production for six years. It was successful enough that Lincoln even tried aping it with a bustleback midsize Continental sedan (that had a fake spare tire bulge). This Cadillac Seville is a 1984 model. As far as Caddies go, this one was actually quite roomy inside. When the Seville adopted a bustleback trunk, it also adopted front-wheel-drive, which eliminated the driveshaft and offered a nearly flat floor. At the time it was in production, the Mark 2 Seville was GM's largest front-wheel-drive passenger vehicle available in North America. . . and its ugliest.
