Default Car Taxonomy

Does anyone do where I can obtain the taxonomy of a particular car in raw
format such as text, xml, etc? E.g. the specification of an Accura Legend
1997.



Thanks for all your help!

You want to classify this car? How about:

Car
Import
Honda
Acura
two door
Legend

Or do you want the service specs, not just a detailed description of
this model?

Is your intended classification system descriptive or genetic in nature?
If descriptive, I would start by observing and noting the physical
characteristics
of the item:
metal, plastic, leather, rubber, glass, etc.
color, texture (smooth and shiny, but with infrequent protrusions)
rectangular box, rounded corners, x meters by y meters by z meters in overall
dimensions, mass of xxxx kilos, density of xx grams/cm^3,
heat of fusion, thermal flux, boiling point, pounds of taters per sack, and so
on.

Don't make the mistake of forcing it into a genetic classification scheme, where
you decide what it is beforehand, and then categorize it *accordingly*.

XML sounds like a great idea, but for extra credit, do it with punchcard
Fortran.
Papers due by Friday morning 10am; one letter grade deducted for lateness.
Include properly formatted footnotes and references. And use your
spell-checker,
Mr. Accura.

Or, alternatively:
Acura legendii, var. obsoletus
Family Hondaceae
Order Automobilia
Class Vehiclei
Phylum Mechanista

I'm sure this will help.
