Inheritance. Not really sure were to start on this. Please help!

must create a program that includes user interaction and employs, Object Oriented Programming and Inheritance, File Handling Classes, and some type of data object: Arrays, Linked Lists, Binary Trees or Stacks and Queues. The program must allow the user to enter at least one data item, and then, the program must perform some sort of a calculation or manipulation, and display the result. In addition, the program must allow the user to write data created to a file, and allow for the display of data read from a file. Anything is allowable, as long as it includes input, the techniques from the course and display and file operations.

I want to create a program that reads the data within the PRN file below and sorts the numbers into classes of different types of vehicles and writes it to a new file. On top of that, I must add the counter number (6 digit #), the direction (North, east, south, west), and the name of the county.

Example output:

Counter number: 098743
Counter direction: East
Name of county: Baker

then

Each class is listed as a number (0001, 0002, etc) within the given PRN file

So FourAxleDouble = 15 (the number 0007 appeared 15 time)

Motor = 35 (the number 0001 appered 35 times)

So all of these things should be listed in a new text file.
This is what I have so far

Using inheritance is important although it might produce high complexity within the code. Don't worry about it as there are programs that might help with it, as checkmarx. High complexity might lead to bugs and errors and if you want to be able to detect those by yourself, it's important to keep practicing on it.
