  1. sorry I'm a year late to update this topic, Chris from the AACA library tracked down the correct Autonews issue. Thanks again Chris. I browsed through the AACA library and searched by magazine instead of auto make and model, found Autonews. Turns out "Autonews" magazine was only published for a year in 1950's which explains why it is so rare. The magazine later became "Western Automotive Journal" and Cliff Prodger was the editor there. Still trying to find an original copy for my collection.
  2. definitely heavily borrowed styling, the parking lights resemble the Chevy more, I had pictures of them side by side I'll try to find them.

  4. don't forget google's secret relationship with the NSA, and the spying done by NSA at AT&T. Also keep in mind In-Q-Tel, CIA’s own venture capital firm which funded Keyhole Corp. the creator of 3D earth technology which is now Google Earth. James Corbett of the corbettreport put it best “In-Q-Tel is a dangerous blurring of the lines between the public and private sectors in a way that makes it difficult to tell where the American intelligence community ends and the IT sector begins.” sure thing <object width="480" height="360"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbBDQgFNoqw?version=3&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbBDQgFNoqw?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="480" height="360" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true"></embed></object>
  5. I have an account there myself but you won't find much personal info there, for now I'm using it to inform as many friends and family members as I can before I close it. Avoiding it is too late, we should have avoided the patriot act instead. Because today's technology is and will be used against citizens. FACEBOOK: Federal Human Data Mining Program "When the Berlin Wall came down in the 90's the German People stormed the Stasi Headquarters in the tens of thousands, there was horror, crying, wailing and a grinding of teeth on a biblical scale by the people because of the number of and types of files kept by the Stasi. All the information that the Stasi went to great lengths and trouble to compile on German citizens is now given freely by individual Americans themselves. The true Horror is yet to come." ytu
  6. also keep in mind that facebook uses a sophisticated face recognition software, which allows any criminal take a candid photo of you on the street, upload it to his facebook account, activate auto-tagging and easily identify you. If the victims account is public, then planning a robbery is a breeze, since most users feel like they need to tell the world every time they are out for dinner, or leaving for vacation. <object height="480" width="640"> <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYvkMfmNBPw?version=3&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" height="480" width="640"></object>

  9. the GAZ-M1 was based on the Ford Model B, I don't know if it was a licensed copy like GAZ-A was, but it's still a copy, it's too bad not much is interchangeable when it comes to parts. The later GAZ-11 had some changes.
  10. the double ridge on the back looks very similar to the lines on GAZ M1, and Ford Fordor
  11. I fully grasped this principle by accident, when I was in high school I designed and built two go-carts, one ended up as a senior project. The steering on the first one was fairly simple with the spindles at 90 degrees. It worked fine, but I did not like the excessive rolling of the tires on turns, plus every bump pulled on the steering wheel. On the second project I tried to solve the rolling tire problem by leaning the spindles back a bit, that part made sense to me, as the wheels were to be turned they would also lean in to the direction of the turn. As I was assembling the cart and had the tie rods off with the wheels on, only then it hit me that positive caster also will return the wheels back, since both wheels turned all the way inwards as soon as they were subject to gravity.
  12. here is what Andrey put together, sorry there isn't a translation available, I'll try to insert closed captions in English later. <object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WdUP7Rr_Io?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WdUP7Rr_Io?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>
  13. found on ebay, a neat document, an original 1954 AP Press-Release on my car:)
  14. I'm sure no body parts are interchangeable, American styling was heavily borrowed and copied, but the cars are diferent. The Pobeda for example is the first mas-produced car with non-protruding integral fenders. the Volga is a 1959, it has been in the states for about ten years, changed a few owners. Originally from Los Angeles, I found it on the Las Vegas craigslist. I haven't done any major work on the Pobeda, I'm on my last year in school, I have to give it all I got to finish. I've sent you an e-mail Andrey
  15. there's a similar (recycled paper) underfelt material for a British car, although it looks three times thicker, still looking
