1965 MG MGB

1965 MG MGB

Oh the MGB, the last great British Sports car?

A motor that refused to die even though British Leyland simply couldn’t stop messing around with it. The MGB is an example of a car that went from one of the most loved and lovable cars in British motoring, to what many describe as an empty husk broken and bent for legislation purposes. But the MGB would have its way in the end!

The story behind the MGB begins in 1962, when the car was designed to incorporate an innovative, modern style utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB’s rival, the Triumph TR series. However components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947. The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver’s compartment offered plenty of legroom. A parcel shelf was fitted behind the seats.

The car was powered by a BMC B-Series engine, producing 95hp and giving the car a 0-60 of 11 seconds, perhaps not the briskest acceleration, but of course this car was more a comfy little cruiser, ambling about the countryside in sedate fashion admiring the views. The MGB was also one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger in a 30 mph impact with an immovable barrier (200 ton).

The roadster was the first of the MGB range to be produced. The body was a pure two-seater but a small rear seat was a rare option at one point. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage accommodation than the earlier MGA while 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride, and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. The four-speed gearbox was an uprated version of the one used in the MGA with an optional (electrically activated) overdrive transmission. Wheel diameter dropped from 15 to 14 inches.

Upon its launch the MGB was given almost unanimous acclaim, largely due to its advanced and innovative design combined with its beautifully and sleek styling. Previous sports cars of the same calibre had always been levied with a reputation for their ropey nature, with a majority of previous models being simply remodelled versions of the MG’s and Triumphs that dated back to the end of and in some cases even before World War II. But the MG was different, and if I’m honest, a large part of its appeal is due to its small, low body, and it’s poky round headlights that make it look rather cute. It’s the kind of car you could give a name, preferably a girl’s one. Either way, the MGB sold in hundreds, disappearing off to all corners of the globe, touring the South of France, storming across the deserts …

Jeep é uma marca registada atualmente em nome da Chrysler LLC Group. O termo jipe virou sinônimo de automóveis destinados ao uso fora de estrada, ou off road, normalmente com tração nas quatro rodas. A palavra jipe é um aportuguesamento do termo em inglês jeep, derivado da pronúncia em inglês da sigla GP, que significa general purpose ou "uso geral", embora essa não seja a origem da marca Jeep.

O veículo surgiu durante o esforço de guerra americano, no final dos anos 1930 e início dos 40, em que era necessário um veículo leve, com capacidade de superar terrenos difíceis e com obstáculos, e com capacidade para levar alguns homens e armamentos. Ao final da segunda guerra, a Willys requisitou o registro do nome Jeep.

O primeiro protótipo foi o Bantan BRC cuja traseira é semelhante às traseiras do Jeep Willys e do Jeep Ford, mas a frente é arredondada, bem de acordo com o design típico do final dos anos 1930.[carece de fontes] Está na mente coletiva que o primeiro Jeep foi o Willys MB ou simplesmente "42" (de 1942), mas isso é um erro. Antes dele, outros modelos de Jeep foram enviados para as frentes de combate, como o Willys Quad, o Bantan BRC 40, o Willys MA e o Ford GP ou Pigmy.[carece de fontes] O veículo da Ford era denominado "GP" e pode ser confundido com a origem da denominação Jeep.

Segundo a Chrysler do Brasil, o nome Jeep deve-se ao personagem de histórias em quadrinhos chamado "Jeep". Em 16 de março de 1936 a personagem conhecido pelo nome de Eugene the Jeep foi criado pelo cartunista E. C. Segar para fazer companhia ao Popeye. Ele era do tamanho de um cachorro e nativo da África e capaz de passar para a quarta dimensão. Ele resolvia todos os problemas do Popeye e da Olivia Palito e sempre falava a verdade. Este personagem cativou o público e se tornou rapidamente popular. O termo "Hey, he’s a real Jeep!" ou "Ei, ele é um verdadeiro Jeep!" era constantemente empregado para pessoas que demonstravam uma capacidade superior. [carece de fontes]

A ligação entre o nome Jeep e a tração 4×4 é creditado ao piloto de teste da Willys, Irvin Hausmann, que escolheu o nome para o seu veículo em 1940 durante testes para o exército americano. Até então eram referenciados por outros nomes como Bug, Blitz Buggy, Puddle Jumper, Peep ou Quad. O nome Jeep foi trazido a público por Katherine Hillyer no jornal Washington Daily News, em 16 de março de 1941, quando relatou que ao final de uma demonstração alguém da platéia perguntou a Hausmann como ele chamava aquele veículo e ele respondeu: "It’s a Jeep!", ou "É um Jeep!".[carece de fontes]

No Brasil, a Vemag produziu o Candango, entre 1958 e 1963, uma versão sob licença do DKW Munga. A Vemag tentou lançar esse veículo no Brasil denominando-o como Jeep DKW-Vemag, mas a Willys detinha os direitos sobre a denominação Jeep e daí surgiu o nome …

Cameron 16HP Runabout 1911 (1050862)

Cameron 16HP Runabout 1911 (1050862)

Manufacturer: Cameron Car Company, Beverly, Massachusetts – U.S.A.
Type: 16HP Runabout
Engine: 2369cc straight-4 air-cooled
Power: 16 bhp
Speed: unknown
Production time: 1903 – 1914
Production outlet: about 8,000
Curb weight: 454 kg

– Cameron Car Company is remembered for their air-cooled vehicles and for relocating often.
– At first at Rhode Island from 1902 to 1906, then in Brockton, Massachusetts from 1906 to 1908, then in Beverly, Massachusetts from 1909 to 1915, Norwalk, Connecticut in 1919, and finally in Stamford, Connecticut in 1920.
– Like many people in the exciting early days of the automobile industry, James E. Brown of the Brown Textile Machine Company in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, decided to go into the automobile manufacturing business in 1901. Everett S. Cameron was hired to designed the new vehicle. Experiments were conducted, improvements were made, and in 1903, Cameron automobile production began.
– No cars were produced from 1915 to 1918 (the company entered bankruptcy).
– During their career, they would produce trucks, tractors, marine, and aviation engines as well as cars and boats.
– The Runabout is probably designed by one of its founders, Everett S. Cameron.
– It has a three-speed manual gearbox, one carburetor and rear wheel drive (shaft driven).
– They had several innovate creations that would become industry standards, such as left-side (ight-hand drive was the accepted practice) steering wheels (wheel steering i.s.o. a tiller), front-mounted engines, air cooling, a revolutionary rear-mounted gearbox, the gear shift was mounted on the steering column and torque tube drive.
– With a lack of patent applications in the early days of production (as was the case with many manufacturers), it is unclear "who was first".
– Several Cameron’s were used in competition, including hill climbs and dirt track events. One example even captured a half-mile world record in Cincinnati, Ohio. Another example became the first air-cooled car to reach the top of Mount Washington without requiring a stop.
– Only 15 survivors.
