How did VW ever get in on the Ghia action? It's pretty remarkable that they did. Pretty looking car.

Ghia was a coachbuilder and by extension, a designer, or maybe the other way round. They made prototypes for everyone, adding the Italian pizzazz to normally staid marques. Very few actually saw production, but were great attention whores at the car shows.

I've always been fond of the Volvo P-1800.

glatt 01-05-2016 09:36 AM

I've wondered about that Volvo before. Makes sense that it was designed by Ghia.

xoxoxoBruce 01-05-2016 12:03 PM

Take a look at Google images for "Ghia designs". It's quick to see the repetitive theme.

That's like a great bender, the hangover is murder. :haha:

Gravdigr 01-05-2016 05:27 PM

Well, tomorrow, the hangover is the point.

Wasn't gonna drink today. But that deviation from the norm has been seen to. Cellar style.

Time to belly up.

See ya later.

Briggs & Stratton bought the Flyer design from A.O. Smith, added the cooling fan, and sold them mostly to bicycle enthusiasts. Here's one attached to a Smith Buckboard, which had a throttle, brakes, and a "clutch" that merely lifted the Flyer off the ground. Note the 1922 Ontario plates.

Koenigsegg’s Camshaft-less Engine Explained

glatt 01-15-2016 01:49 PM

Never heard of such a thing. Very interesting.

It sounds promising, but I fear the complexity of it and the likely expense when it breaks down. Plus, I wouldn't know how to fix it.

Just imagine your car with a 4 position rotary switch. Position 1 mild mannered grocery getter. Position 4 fire breathing beast, that eats up Porsches and Corvettes.

xoxoxoBruce 01-15-2016 02:52 PM

Yes, been waiting for this to happen. The electronics and timing are no problem they already do it with fuel injection and spark. Making a reliable solenoid, strong enough, fast enough, light enough, and cheap enough is a real challenge. The valve it's attached to gets hot as hell, being in the fire one, two, or three thousand times a minute, meaning the solenoid will see much of that heat too.

Puerto Rico is that way. Distance exempt from the metric system

Ladies and gentlemen of Teh Cellar, behold:

The Avtoros Shaman 8x8 All Terrain Vehicle

Attachment 54984

8-wheel drive, on-demand 8 wheel steering, you can just steer the front 4 wheels, you can use active rear wheel steering, or turn them all the same direction and go into "crab mode", Iveco 3-litre turbo-diesel, 6-speed transmission, central driver seating, and what looks to be seating for eight passengers

A little more info, and more pics <---Be warned, this site is a time killer.

8 + driver = 9

Driver's seat has no grip handles.

It has push-button start! :joylove:


xoxoxoBruce 01-24-2016 08:50 PM

I thought the corners of the wrap around dash had padded corners.
But looking at your picture, I see the armrests folded up, so I think you're right.

I don't see the advantage of pushing a button over turning a key. :confused:

In 1963 (I think) Popdigr bought a '62 Corvette from a used car lot. White, w/white scallop on the side, w/white interior, both tops, the nice hubcaps. Whoever had owned it had the local Chevy dealer put a big block with dual 4-barrel carbs and 4-speed in it. He said "It was a hoss." I bet it was.

He sold it in '65 for $2500.:thepain:

xoxoxoBruce 01-28-2016 10:06 AM

You should thank him, if he'd hung on to it you'd probably be dead. :thepain:

If you want to sell a product, any product, first you have to get their attention. That's all the more difficult in the noisy, fast-paced, world of motorcycle racing.
I think the training wheels tie it all together. ;)

Back in the dark ages of the motorcar, when there was less that 200 miles of paved road in the entire USA, tires were a major expense. They might last 1,000 miles on your Model-T if you were careful, but on your chauffeured phaeton, only 200 miles. Pneumatic tires had a long way to go, so springy wheels, of many stripes, came along.

BigV 02-03-2016 10:27 AM

Airless tires. They look funny, but I can see these becoming the new must-have car accessory.

xoxoxoBruce 02-03-2016 10:57 PM


In a variety of performance tests conducted at speeds up to 80 mph, Hankook said that its iFlex tires perform just as well as conventional tires.
80 mph.
