Depression can be one of the hardest times of someone’s life. Sufferers often feel misunderstood, tired and deeply unhappy. If these kinds of feelings sound familiar, you’re not alone. Millions of people suffer from depression every day. Here are a few tips about dealing with depression that might be able to help.

Diet and exercise play integral roles in depression. Engaging in activity, such as a brisk walk or bike ride, may be all you need to conquer your depression. Staying away from processed foods, sleeping properly and exercising can all help with depression.

The difference between clinical depression and normal sadness is like the difference between a stream and a river. If you feel you have been sad for no reason or remained sad for a very long time there is a chance you have clinical depression. Be sure to have this checked out by a professional.

Go on a long walk to enjoy nature. Sometimes a change of scenery can help us appreciate life. Watch the animals leading their lives. Pay attention to the small details and try to find the beauty in nature. Breathe in the fresh air, relax, and let your mind wander as you walk.

Try aromatherapy as a treatment for depression. Certain scents are known to affect your mood. You can either buy ready-to-use aromatherapy oils or make your own. Simply dilute the herbs with a little vegetable oil and rub into your skin. You can also add a few drops to your bath water or scent the entire room with a diffuser. Helpful herbs for depression include lavender, lemon, rose, and geranium.

A great way to deal with depression is to change your attire. It is true that the way you dress can often directly impact how you feel about yourself. Be sure that you always dress your best no matter what it is that you are doing and both you and others will have a more positive view about you.

To help with your depression, you should form new relationships that are founded on a support system that is there for you. As you find the support to be handy and on-time, you will find that depression is counteracted by a new approach that can greatly increase your confidence and show you that you aren’t going at it alone.

If you are depressed, you may feel uncomfortable about sharing your problems with others. However, talking openly about how you feel is essential to feeling better. Studies have proven that talking to friends and family about your life will lift the burden that you may feel. Talking it out can help you process your thoughts and work out feelings that you did not recognize until spoke about it out loud.

Use these tips as the first steps on your journey to recovery. Depression can be a terrible feeling, but as time passes you will find that you are starting to feel a little better. Take your time and don’t force yourself to act happy if you aren’t. Everything is unfolding in perfect time, including you.

84MustangSVO_HRCar companies like claiming that their products are racing inspired. Usually that means that contrasting gauges and a spoiler have been added. However, before launching production, the SVO team ran racecars based on “regular” Mustangs. They then took the lessons learned at the track and built the production Mustang SVO with the same tested and proven components and set-ups. Something as mundane as a power steering pump can fail spectacularly under racing conditions, but the only way to find out is to go racing.

The SVO prototypes were torture tested at the 24-Hours Longest Day of Nelson, an amateur endurance race sanctioned by the SCCA. Intercooling and turbocharging configurations were sorted. Four-wheel disc brakes carried over from the Lincoln division withstood the punishment and proved a good match for the road course Mustang. The three pedal setup for these manual-transmission equipped-cars was designed specifically for the SVO model, optimized for heel-and-toe footwork, which the factory pedal configuration made awkward.

The SVO team proved that a light, yet powerful, turbocharged four-cylinder engine in a Fox-body Mustang with a track-refined suspension could take on the best showroom stock automobiles the world could muster. For 1984, the team produced a road-legal turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang that wore the SVO badge. It matched the V-8 equipped Mustang GT’s horsepower – at 175 – with half the cylinders and less than half the displacement (2.3-liters vs. 5.0).

An earlier turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang had arrived as a 1979 model, but the carbureted setup had drivability and maintenance issues. The arrival of modern electronic fuel injection changed everything, first on the track and then in the showroom. The SVO team hit the trifecta of performance, drivability, and emissions control.
The 1984 Mustang SVO made its impressive power by pushing 14-psi of turbo boost into the intercooled SOHC four-cylinder. Subsequent engine refinements and a bump to 15-psi brought that figure up to 205 horsepower. The model’s final year was 1986.

Ford established the Special Vehicle Operations, or SVO, in 1980. Michael Kranefuss and John Plant of Ford’s motorsports division were assigned to create limited-edition performance vehicles with a focus on racing. With the performance connection between manufacturer and consumer now established, the green flag dropped for in-house teams not only at Ford, with its follow-up to SVO known as the Special Vehicle Team or SVT, but also at Chrysler and General Motors.

The SVO team produced a pivotal low-volume performance car; 30 years later, and in the midst of a horsepower war to rival that of the 1960s, a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine once again powers a Ford Mustang, now with 310 horsepower.

Pebble Beach in August is best known among classic car enthusiasts as home to the world’s premier Concours d’Elegance and general locale for the sale of some of the world’s most expensive cars. But during a week in which close to 1,000 vehicles will be sold, it should also be noted that there are plenty of great cars available for prices that are a little more grounded. Here are 10 that caught our eye.
1984 Audi Quattro
Russo and Steele, Consignment Number 5053
The Ur Quattro popularized all-wheel drive, which would become commonplace on everything from sports cars to family sedans 20 years later. A driver’s favorite, this model could be a lot of inexpensive fun. It carries L.A. Olympic decals from its reported stint as an exec car during the 1984 games, which amps up the retro appeal.
Auction estimate: N/A

1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Duetto
Gooding & Co., Lot Number 69
The Alfa Duetto remains a great choice for a first collectible. It is sexy, iconic, easy to live with, and satisfying to drive, all for around $30,000. Prices have been flat during the past three years.
Auction estimate: $35,000 – $50,000
1959 Triumph TR3A
Bonhams, Lot Number 116
The quintessential British sports car, with cut-down doors, minimal weather gear, and wire wheels. TR3s remain popular among all levels of buyers because they combine reliability, affordability, performance and vintage style in a way that few other cars do. Prices jumped a year ago, but have been mostly stable since.
Auction estimate: $30,000 – $40,000

1974 BMW 3.0 CSi
Mecum, Lot Number F53
Long a favorite of understated collectors, BMW E9 coupes have been poised for a value bump for the past year, but few high-quality stock examples have traded in public to cement this leap. This one appears to have undergone an impressive frame-off restoration, and carries a non-original but desirable 5-speed transmission. The amount of interest this car generates will be telling of the E9 market in general.
Auction estimate: N/A

1961 Pontiac Ventura 389/348 Sport Coupe
Russo and Steele, Consignment Number 5069
GM’s 1961 “Bubble Top” cars are some of the prettiest American cars produced from the 1960s. The Impala tends to get the recognition, but the Ventura delivers all of the same fun at a discount. This particular car is fresh off a restoration and is equipped with a factory 4-speed. As with all American muscle, check documentation, then bid accordingly.
Auction estimate: N/A

1990 Buick Reatta convertible
Mecum, Lot Number T16
Part of GM’s convertible revival of the late 1980s. The Reatta is more a curiosity among today’s collectors than anything, but good ones are rare and show surprisingly well. This blue example runs early on Thursday and could be a bargain.
Auction estimate: N/A

1974 BMW 2002 Turbo
Gooding & Co, Lot 110
Often regarded as one of the key pre-cursors to BMW’s M performance division, the 2002 Turbo is also reportedly an incredibly electrifying car to drive. Experienced drivers only need apply. Asking prices for these cars have routinely eclipsed $100,000 in 2013, but they rarely find their way into a public arena. A benchmark car.
Auction estimate: $60,000-$80,000

1966 Pontiac Catalina convertible
Mecum, Lot Number F213
The Catalina carries the same great styling — on a grander scale — as the popular Pontiac GTO, only at half the price. This particular car looks to be well presented in black over red, and should admirably serve someone as a fun weekend cruiser. 2+2s have been on the rise, which makes the standard Catalina that much more attractive.
Auction estimate: N/A

1966 Lotus Cortina Mk I
Bonhams, Lot Number 162
Lotus Cortinas have performed well in the market over the last few years, with famed racer KPU 392C bringing nearly $300,000 in England earlier this summer. Bonhams is offering a one-owner, 6,000-mile example with a low estimate of $50,000, though we expect this car to sail past that.
Auction estimate: $50,000 – $100,000

1951 Frazer Vagabond utility sedan
Mecum, Lot Number S47
Rarely remembered and even rarer still to see, the Vagabond utility sedan’s conventional-looking rear end opens entirely up a la a hatchback. An interesting example of shipbuilder Henry Kaiser’s short-lived foray into consumer automobile production.
Auction estimate: $30,000 – $40,000

1963-Corvette-Sting-RayBill Mitchell’s signature styling element for the second-generation Chevrolet Corvette’s first year – the coupe’s rear window divided by a center post – aggravated Zora Arkus-Duntov, who disapproved of its hampered visibility.

Notwithstanding Zora’s dismay over the GM design chief’s imposed flourish, the so-called split window model, which lasted only one year, has become a particularly sought-after Corvette. It is routinely priced 50 to 100 percent above comparably equipped ’64s. Perhaps the sole instance where a rear window has been the subject of a widely available wall poster, its distinctive design deserves the adjective “iconic.”

There is, however, a way to enjoy the exclusivity of owning a split window ‘Vette at a more reasonable price: Buy one equipped with a Powerglide. They don’t turn up very often; only 2,621 of the 21,513 ’63 Corvettes were built with the two-speed automatic transmission, making it almost as rare as the high performance 360-horsepower fuel injection engine (2,610 made).
Collectors’ disdain for the Powerglide isn’t justified by a lack of performance. The famed Chaparral racecars used a modified Powerglide to great effect and success, amazing competitors and spectators with the transmission’s ease of use and performance. And it’s logical that coming generations of collectors will have had much less exposure to manual transmissions, which could make the automatic a more desirable choice.

While there are exceptions to every rule (more about that later) a good split window ’Vette with Powerglide is reliably under $100,000, something that cannot be said of most ’63 Sting Ray coupes with three pedals.

At its 2015 Indianapolis auction, Mecum Auctions sold a high-quality example – an older cosmetic restoration – with desirable options like side exhausts, power steering and power brakes for a healthy but still reasonable $86,400. Having the base 250-horse 327 cid engine kept the price down.

Mecum sold a Powerglide split window coupe at its Kissimmee, Fla., auction this year, powered by the satisfying 300 hp engine and also well equipped with options like power steering, power brakes, power windows and a Wonder Bar signal-seeking radio. Represented as having a numbers-matching engine, and owned by the seller since 1970, it was in better than showroom condition. Even with an older restoration, it brought $92,400.

Mecum had a more modestly priced Powerglide split window at Kissimmee in 2015, also with the 300-horse engine and power brakes, power steering and the Wonder Bar radio. It also had the extremely rare air-conditioning option – only 278 were so equipped in ’63. Finished in Sebring Silver, it was an older, mellowed restoration and brought a relatively modest $77,760.

The exception to the rule? The Sting Ray from Kissimmee 2015 was sold at RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction this past January for a generous $126,500.

Contrast those values with a 250 hp air-conditioned example at the Auctions America Auburn sale in May, earlier this year. It was an older superficial restoration, now showing more than a few flaws and shortcuts. It came without any representation of the powertrain’s originality and still brought $78,100.

There is opportunity where conventional thinking follows the accepted wisdom. A Powerglide-equipped split window ’63 coupe may be one of those opportunities to benefit by taking a different path.
