I was wondering about the size more than anything,but lincolns have been unibody since 1938 ( or 39) . mercedes haven't built a car with a chassis since the 3-0-0 of the 1950's and the W170 ,which was a prewar design anyway.

Well, for the sake of argument, that all depends on what your definition of the term 'production car' is.

I hear you saying, "that is obviously a conversion done by an outside company; that thing didn't roll off the assembly line like that."
Which is absolutely true. But it is also true of most GM and Chrysler convertibles built in the last 30 years or so. These convertibles started life as coupes, and were sent to an outside contractor to be converted into convertibles. Do you consider them production vehicles?

Sorry, sometimes I can't resist a friendly argument

Wild guess:

Sears Roebuck and Co.

nope not sears,or JC whitney ... but a hint,The company bearing the inventors name ceased being an entity recently after 100 years of being used as a trademark.


The 600 landau aka popemobile was built by mercedes,they did all their own work,no outside contractors were involved since before WW2. There was only one right hand drive landau built,I had the oppurtunity to look close at it a couple of months ago. A seriously BIG car,and it has always been privately owned unlike most of the others which were owned by governments and despots of various sorts.

This thread hasn't stopped, I don't know what the question is or who has the floor right now is the problem!

This has been a blast, let's get it back on track.

Is this the last question asked?

What's main difference (or even improvement) between VAZ-2105 engine and previous ones?

And did Joe answer it correctly?

Brian

No, I wasn't paying attention. After reviewing the last few pages, I now realize that Nightrider's last post was the answer to his last question.

I wanna know who invented the home garage. I googled the hell out of it, and still can't find the answer.

I believe the floor is open to whoever wants to ask a question, but the rules around here are pretty vague.

Somebody ask a question.
