Henry Ford cars in 1920
Leo Marfurt, 1931
In 1908, Minerva got a worldwide Knight Engine license. The Knight motor developed by Charles Yale Knight in the United States used double sleeve valves and ran almost silently. All future Minervas would use these engines. Sporting successes continued with the new engines including the Austrian Alpine Trials and Swedish Winter Trials. Customers included the kings of Belgium, Sweden and Norway and Henry Ford. After World War I, during which Sylvain de Jong and his engineers had headed to Amsterdam where they kept on developing parts, they returned to restart the production of luxury cars in 1920 with 20CV 3.6 litre 4 cylinder and 30CV 5.3 litre six cylinder models. The constructor's star rose in the United States as well where American filmstars, politicians and industrials liked the cars. The car had the same qualities as the Rolls-Royce, but was a little cheaper. In 1923 smaller models were introduced with the 2 litre four cylinder 15CV and 3.4 litre six cylinder 20CV with standard four wheel brakes. For 1927 there was a replacement for the 30CV with the 6 litre AK and also a new 2 litre six with the 12-14. Large cars continued to be something

What I'm talking about is that very early stage before any legal incorporation or LLCs are even on the horizon. I'm talking about you and me coming up with an idea for a business and we agree that my work is worth X and your work is worth X and we do our work and issue an invoice just between us, with no legal stature whatever. Just the two of us working toward the creation of a money making ent...m with facts from the past as was the case with Sloan when he launched GM based on figures from Ford and knew exactly where the BE point would be before selling the first share of stock.
You are talking business management through the legal process, I am talking about innovation when there is no antecedent and only the passion of the entrepreneur, like Sam Walton, Bill Gates, Jobs, et al.
Shelby gt 500 - $49,4952010-05-28 20:19:55 by scram
If the current Shelby GT500 had lived on essentially as is for a few more model years, we wouldn't have complained. Equally at ease on a drag strip, road course, or the freeway home, the 2010 GT500 always seemed to land at the top spot of each comparison it entered. But like the rest of the Mustang lineup, the GT500 is gett... 35,000 degree plasma jet. According to Ford, the resulting 150-micron coating is lighter, more durable, and improves heat transfer through the block versus iron liners, and it will last the lifetime of the vehicle.
