About Turner

The first Turner models were produced in 1954 by a company established by Jack Turner near Wolverhampton, England.

Initially known as the "803" and using an 803cc Austin A30 engine, transmission and suspension, the car featured a simple ladder frame chassis and open fibreglass 2-seater sports bodywork. In 1956, the uprated 948cc unit from the Austin A35 was adopted and the model renamed "950", but was otherwise unchanged.

In 1959 this model was replaced by a new version which although similar to the outgoing model, featured substantial revisions both to the body and chassis. The 948cc Austin engined version was named the Turner Sports Mk I, and versions known as Turner-Climaxes were also available with the powerful Coventry Climax 1,097cc FWA and 1,216 FWE units. Approaching 150 Turners had been produced by the time this model was replaced.

The following year, a Sports Mk II model appeared with much improved interior trim and further minor styling revisions. As well as the Austin and Coventry Climax engines, in 1961 and 1962 other options such as the Ford 105E 997cc and 109E 1,340cc units were introduced and finally, in 1963, the new Ford Cortina 1,500cc engine was also made available. About 300 Turner Mk II models were made.

Car Insurance Comparison – Why It is Important

Knowing what to look for when making a car insurance comparison is getting to be more important all of the time. Most, if not all states require motorists to have some level of auto insurance.

But now, states like Mississippi that do not have insurance databases are going to have them, and there must be proof of insurance before the automobile can get its tags renewed. According to the Jackson Free Press, the Mississippi legislature passed a new law in mid-March of 2011 requiring that motorists have more than just an insurance card, but actually have the insurance and be in the database. No insurance means no tags. This will prevent motorists from signing up for insurance and then canceling the policy to save money and still have the card.

With this becoming more common, it is more important now than ever to know how to make a car insurance comparison. Everyone wants to save money on auto insurance, and if that is the name of your game, you will want to get the absolute minimum that your state requires. That does not necessarily mean that you are going to have great insurance, though, because it will most likely just be liability. If your car still has some value to it, this may not be the best for you. If your car is totaled, you will have no way to recover the loss.

If you are already covered under a health insurance plan, it may not be necessary to get additional medical coverage with your auto insurance. If not, this could be crucial. Other additions that you will have to consider include towing, comprehensive coverage, theft, extra liability, car rental and a number of other options your agent will be happy to show you.
