It wasn't Iskenderian and this was way prior to 1958.

In fact there might not have been drag engines.

Chris Well I have 1907 so that's close enough. did you get it out of a page of the SAE journal. I thought the year was 1919 but I went back and found 1907.


The floor is yours.

Thank you Bob.
I have known about Laurence Pomeroy, for many years. He actually received more notoriety in later years for his development of aircraft engines with the extensive use of aluminum to make the engines lighter and more powerful. Years ago I read an old aircraft history book that sited him as the father of the use of aluminum in engines. The book read that he first used aluminum when he was with Vauxhall Motors. He developed a race engine during 1907-1908 that used aluminum extensively. Even-though he took Vauxhall Motors to the front of the pack with early race engines, not much is out there on the web about him. Just another one of our unsung heroes.

Next question, lets see. There is an old english term that was first used in the jewelry industry and still is today. It is now used in the automotive industry where at one time it actually served a function now it is just for aesthetics. What is that word, what role does it have in the jewelry industry and what roles has it played in the automotive industry.

Holy cow Chris, I'm going to have to wait for my wife to get home to answer this. Do you know how bad that will look.

A try, how about bling? In the past it was used to describe the reflection of light off of gems and the metals used in the making of rings and the like. In present day it is slang for all the shinny stuff that young music makers and the wannabees wear around their neck, in their faces or in their teeth. As to the automotive use I think it is used as a general description for overly large shiny wheels with or without the spinners. That is my guess

I think this is just something for you to read while I keep looking for the answer.

Turtle back In jewelery it is a type of glass made by Tiffany, made in translucent in-descent glass in various colors, often used in leaded -light lamps.

Here's the iffy part, turtle back in a car is the trunk lid or back end of a car, but not used anymore, except maybe for bling. LOL

Not Turtle back either. It's not a word that means two different things. When it was originally used in the automotive industry it served the same purpose as in the jewelry industry. But for the most part now it is just for aesthetics.

How about silver, used to make jewelery

on a car because it is the best for conducting heat, it is used in rear window defoggers.

Chris I hope you know you are going to get a lot of ladies mad, when they walk in, and we are on sites about jewelery, and not cars, they will get thoughts about things we don't want them to think about, jewelery not good.
