Close look at 1910s 20hp Ford Model T, its ignition & light systems Price $850 FOB Detroit, MI
Close look 1910s 20hp Ford Model T, its ignition wheels and light systems. Price $850, F.O.B., Detroit, Mich. (1908) - Sunnyvale CA centennial event http://www.thehenryford.com/exhibits/showroom/1908/model.t.html The early Model Ts actually did come in a variety of colors, but beginning in 1914 and for the next eleven years, the Model T would be sold in only one color: black. The main reason for this was the black enamel used dried more quickly than other paints and therefore sped up production. Consumers were not offered a choice of colors again until 1926, due in part to slumping sales. It has never been proven that Henry Ford ever said, "You can paint it any color...," but the phrase has survived for 3/4 of a century and does indicate something about America's beloved Model T: its "steadfastness," its enduring and endearing "sameness." The first production Model T Ford was assembled at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit on October 1, 1908. Over the next 19 years, Ford would build 15,000,000 automobiles with the Model "T" engine, the longest run of any single model apart from the Volkswagen Beetle. From 1908-1927, the Model T would endure with little change in its design. Henry Ford had succeeded in his quest to build a car for the masses. Ford Model T - 100 Years Later http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4KrIMZpwCY 1910 Ford Make sure you read all the statistics under the photo. This has only been 102 years ago?Amazing!! The year is 1910, over one hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes! Here are some U. S. statistics for the Year 1910: The average life expectancy for men was 47 years. Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only. Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub. Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone. There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph. The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower ! The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour. The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year. A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian Between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year. More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME. Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION! Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.' Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee was fifteen cents a pound. Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo. Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason. The Five leading causes of death were: 1. Pneumonia and influenza 2. Tuberculosis 3. Diarrhea 4. Heart disease 5. Stroke The American flag had 45 stars. The population of Las Vegas , Nevada was only 30! Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet. There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day. Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school. Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, Regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health' Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help. There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. ! TilTul http://tiltul.com LinksYouWantToRemember CIMG0264 Red old Ford Sunnyvale CA centennial.MOV

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L

Брошенные автомобили Дубая часть 2 (Abandoned Cars in Dubai part 2)
В каких-то городах особенно остро стоит проблема мусора, другие страдают от высокого уровня преступности, в третьих не найти доступного жилья. А вот проблема, с которой столкнулись жители Дубая -- совершенно особенная, можно сказать уникальная. Этот город задыхается от... брошенных роскошных автомобилей, которые покрываются толстым слоем пыли на парковках аэропорта и по обочинам дорог всего города. Если вам приходилось бывать в Дубае или вообще в Объединённых Арабских Эмиратах, то вы наверняка замечали, что там существует определённая автомобильная культура: самая последняя и самая крутая модель -- важнейший показатель статуса. Однако Дубай, как и весь остальной мир, тоже пережил тяжёлые времена. Иностранные инвесторы, преимущественно британцы, охотно инвестировали в стране с высокими нефтяными доходами и процветающим рынком недвижимости. Разбогатевшие эмигранты тратили сумасшедшие деньги на покупку последних моделей итальянских и немецких спортивных автомобилей, чтобы подчеркнуть свой статус миллионеров. А тут нагрянул экономический кризис и все пузыри полопались. Тысячи самых роскошных автомобилей, которые только можно вообразить, оказались никому не нужны -- с того самого момента как Дубай настиг финансовый крах. Они пылятся, брошенные хозяевами-эмигрантами и местными, которые в спешке покинули город, поскольку оказались не в состоянии расплатиться по огромным долгам. Понимая, что взятые в банке огромные ссуды им не осилить (а невыплаченный долг или даже возвращённый чек считаются в Дубае уголовным преступлением), владельцы роскошных авто в панике устремились в аэропорты, и улетели, чтобы никогда не вернуться. Бесчисленные Феррари, Порше, БМВ, Мерседесы и более скромные автомобили стоят бесхозными на автомобильной стоянке Международного аэропорта Дубая. На лобовых стёклах некоторых машин хозяева оставили кредитные документы и записки с извинениями. Некоторые оставлены прямо с ключами, и всё равно никому нет до них никакого дела.

Legend of Buick - Part 1 (1998)
Here's a great video produced in 1998 by General Motors Communications Support Group for Buick Communications. Written and directed by author/biographer Lawrence R. Gustin (one of the very few writers active today who extensively interviewed people close to the founder of General Motors, William Durant, and who also has a very rich background in researching and presenting Buick history), this video presents a detailed walk through the history of Buick from its early roots with David Dunbar Buick, all the way through to the late 90s. Narrated by Bill Harris, you'll enjoy a wide collection of Buick memorabilia including photos, newspaper articles, and film clips. (Video is presented in two parts.)
