Yes, AM/FM stereo was available in a '65 Corvair, but it was only a 2 speaker setup. 4 Speaker stereo was not available in the Corvair until 1966.

Nope. Add a year...

This would be the 75th running, not the 75th anniversary.

Brian, I can't see any reason for Wikipedia to lie us
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...is_500_winners

Yea, they run during war...but they also not run during war...

OK, question: how much 1958 DeSotos with factory fuel injection option still exist?

Holy bleep!

Now if Bendix had only used sealed stuff instead of wax-paper wrapped!

So much for Bosch being the orginator!

Now just think of a hemi Chrysler 300D with that system and if it actually WORKED!

You know what, if that is the case, it makes 1992 the 75th running, not 91! First race was in 1911, add 75 you get 1986 but 2 for WWI and add 4 for WWII and you have 92!

Brian, first race + 75 = 76th = 1992.

Anyway, you was right, one Adventurer convertible still have this Bendix system, so...your turn

Who discovered what you see in the photo, first and last name. And for bonus points, when?

Extra bonus why do rodders ignore this simple but very important issue!

(1) Most Hotrodders do not have the ability, resources, or inclination to design and manufacture their own custom spindles or steering linkages.

(2) The effect on a car with street tires is negligible. At higher speeds, other dynamics come into play, such as slip angle.

You are right on Rudolph Ackermann. I had learned years ago it was "Ralph" and in 1850 but Wiki doens't lie, does it?

I have to tell you though, it is a heck of a lot more than "negligible" at low speeds. The slower you are going, the tighter you are turning and the more scuffing of the tires you are getting. Besides, it is often WAY off like when the spindles are simply swapped left to right putting the tie rod out front. At that point not only is the inside wheel not turning enough, it is turning LESS than the outside! I have seen SERIOUS tire wear on a T bucket set up like this. We are talking chunks of rubber ripped out!

Thanks for the insight, Brian. Steering geometry is a complicated subject, and I still have a lot to learn about it.

When disconnecting a battery on a vehicle with a negative ground electrical system, Why is it safer to disconnect the negative battery cable first and re-connect it last?
