Re: Automotive History trivia part III

Good math NJTY... did some research too and you just got it a little way off. Ford was actually using two bushels per car. So with your math, i'd just multiply it to two and voila, youd get the number...

They called the plastic phenolformaldehyde and later found some use for it in making a textile they called azlon. that never made the market though...

I've also seen some news on Ford planting soy on 8000 acres of his land plus some more in Michigan totalling to about 60000 in 1936. Three years after he was harvesting about 100000 bushels.

On how many bushels an acre yields, I got two figures. One says 20 bushels per acre on the average, but a 1994 study showed a whopping 41.4. That pretty much confuses me....

Any of you seen soy jokes.....? saw some....

You might be interested in knowing that the prototype Wildfire has been restored in California. It even has the original tires. At the Santa Barbara Concours, a judge said that he could see that they even had the Orginal air in them.
dosent seem possible...

sorry, i know the rules, but I'm willing to bet that tires wont hold air for that long.



whats the next question?

Park Me Right allows users to search for and get directions to their parked car by using an augmented reality feature or Google Maps.
Unlike similar apps, Park Me Right has stylish and easy-to-use UI and also allows searching for the nearest parking lot. We believe that so far it is the best app of this kind available on the market, however, we would appreciate if you could provide us with a review and a feedback.
Here is the link to the app parkmeright dot com

Re: Automotive History trivia part III

Hello.
Nice thread!
I have found this and it seems to me more than interesting
http://www.all-car-brands.com/
Some guy, in a corner of the world had dedicated 15 years of his life to make a car encyclopedia database with 7000 car brands, 70.000 car types and 500.000 photos.
Few days ago he (by the way, it is a single guy, as stated on another forum) started uploading it on this new website.
There are almost 1000 cars uploaded right now, but the uploading pace seemed to me pretty high with 50 to 100 cars daily.

My opinion is this:
HIGH:
-every brand uploaded is complete and up to date
-it is very well structured, with sepparate galleries for each facelift or special version
-it is very promising

LOW
-the pics are only 800x600
-although there are photos for every car, text description is available for about 75 % of them and videos for about 40 to 50 %.

PS: I have seen that the texts for each car differ, some are small and some are large and complete.

Anyway, i think it is a nice effort and probably 3 to 4 years will pass, untill everything is uploaded.

To pull a Bill Clinton... define mass produced ;^ ). I don't want to derail the discussion, but I think that there are a couple of posts from Hemmings that make interesting reading on this subject. So, I'll just insert the links and let you folks look over the articles.

Here is another trivia question. Besides the 1970 to 1976 Plymouth what other vehicles have or have had the name "Duster"?
