    jaaha, sen verran siis meni mettaan etta hevosta ei sitten piirtanykkaan suomi-jamppa vaan suom.-ugrilaiseen tapaan veisti sen.. olisko ollu pohojan-maalta kotoosin?

    Kiitos Sami! Enpä ole kuullut tästä kaverista, tai noista venemoottoreista olen, mutta sihen se sitten jääkin :eek:
    Ketäs nää muut kolmesta autopioneerista oli? Charles King?

    Iso isäni veljiä oli Fordilla Detroitissa töissä. Tenavana sain kirjan käsiini "Ford at Fifty), joka oli kai tehtaan lahja hänelle. Sitä tuli kirjaa tuli katseltua ahkeraa ja on vieläkin tallella, Kirjassa Fordin historiaa vuoteen 1953 asti,

    Inventor. Born in Finland and a graduate from Zurich, Switzerland's, Ecole Polytechique in Engineering in 1907, he was responsible for many of the automotive inventions that are taken for granted on modern cars today. As Chief Engineer, and later Vice President of Engineering at Nash Motors (later Nash-Kelvinator Corporation), Wahlberg specialized advanced designs for combustion engineering, resulting in Nash’s famed “Twin Ignition” system allowing the company’s six cylinder engines to meet output benchmarks found in other companies much larger straight eight engines. In the field of body engineering, Wahlberg designed the first high volume unit body system for the Nash 600 in 1941, replacing separate body on frame construction, thus reducing weight and giving the car a 600 mile range on a tank of gas. In addition to advanced techniques in passenger compartment sound deadening, Whalberg’s single greatest invention was Nash’s “Conditioned Air” system in the 1930's. Weather Eye eliminated the difference in barometric pressure caused by a moving car through the atmosphere between outside and the inside of passenger compartment. Wahlberg noted that there was a lower pressure in the interior compartment caused by the force generated by the vehicle in motion on the passenger compartment when the windows were closed. Air leaks were found around doors, through normal body gaps. As the car sped up, the pressure increased drawing in drafts and road dirt, while trapping humidity in the passenger cabin. “Conditioned Air”, later renamed “Weather Eye”, balanced the pressures by supplying the interior of the car with a continuous flow of fresh filtered air through an engineered system that passed ambient air through the heater in the winter, and bypassing the heater in warmer months. The air traveled through the cabin and was discharged through vents hidden to the rear of the compartment. This was a feature that would not be found on most other premium cars until the 1950's, and is now standard on every car manufactured today. Later Wahlberg added traditional automotive air conditioning to Weather Eye, however he continued to refine the system until Nash introduced the miniaturized Air Conditioning compressor system in the engine bay, while other makes continued to house their Air Conditioner units in the trunk. In the field of body design, Wahlberg pushed Nash into using wind tunnels to test designs to eliminate drag in order to increase efficiency. While Chrysler had used wind tunnels during the desire of its 1934 Airflow models, Wahlberg approached the process in a holistic fashion, one that wrapped the entire body in a streamlined shell. This resulted in the company’s 1949 “Airflyte” models that featured an enclosed bubble design of smooth planes on the body, fastback styling and enclosed front and rear wheels. Finally, Wahlberg's princples in body design were employed and used in the design of Nash's Rambler line in 1950. The Rambler, riding a 100" wheelbase, well over a foot shorter than the smallest full size Nash, would eventually eclipse the larger Nash, itself, and become the first, successful and profitable American true compact car. Wahlberg served in the American Army during WWI. Wahlberg retired from Nash in 1952.
