In my driveway, Fiat and Chrysler merged years ago. Are they Fislers or Chryats?
I decided to help speed up the Fiat-Chrysler merger by loaning my Fiat Service Department sign to my Chrysler dealer, Stevens in Milford CT. Service Advisor Mark Dokurno smiles with approval.
Ancient Marcus automotive history. SiegfriedMarcus was a prolific German inventor who spent most of his life in Austria. He invented the internal combustion engine in 1864, installed it on a cart and successfully drove it, as the precursor to the automobile. Because he was Jewish, Nazis destroyed most of the records of his work. His second car, finished in 1889, was rediscovered in 1950 and it could still be driven. The car had been stored behind a false wall in the cellar of a Vienna museum to hide it from the Nazis.
(below) My first car was a 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa. It went fast and handled extremely well. I had it while I was at Lehigh in the late 1960s. I hate Ralph Nader for destroying the Corvair.
These photos are not of my actual car, but of an identical twin, except for some customization. I had a walnut veneer dashboard covering from J. C. Whitney, a CB radio and lots of low-tech audio equipment, including a springy-sprongy reverb to feed the rear speaker.
