An expert in the realm of automobiles, or an engineer who has devoted themself toward cars.
I'll ask my friend the carologist about which car I should buy.
1. John Z. DeLorean - former chief engineer for General Motors, responsible for many of GM's successes, such as the GTO. Left GM in 1973 to form his own auto company, DeLorean Motor Company (DMC). After two years of operation, the company was shut down by creditors, and DeLorean was arrested on charges of cocaine trafficking. DeLorean was aquitted of all charges.
2. The gull-winged car produced by the DeLorean Motor Company. Although the official name of the car was "DeLorean DMC-12", most people referred to the car simply as "The DeLorean". The futuristic car became even more popular after its usage in the "Back to the Future" trilogy.
1. John Delorean was probably the most innovative designer in automotive history
2. "Are you telling me you built a time machine....out of a DeLorean??" - Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly)
"The way I see it, if you're going to put a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style!" - Christopher Lloyd (Dr. Emmitt Brown)

Banning guns works, which is why New York, DC, and Chicago cops need guns.more...
Washington DC's low murder rate of 80.6 per 100,000 is due to strict gun control, and Arlington, VA's high murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 is due to the lack of gun control.
Statistics showing high murder rates justify gun control but statistics showing increasing murder rates after gun control are "just statistics."
The Brady Bill and the Assault Weapons Ban, both of which went into effect in 1994, are responsible for the decrease in violent crime rates, which have been declining since 1991.
We must get rid of guns because a deranged lunatic may go on a shooting spree at any time and anyone who would own a gun out of fear of such a lunatic is paranoid.
The more helpless you are the safer you are from criminals.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
A woman raped and strangled is morally superior to a woman with a smoking gun and a dead rapist at her feet.
When confronted by violent criminals, you should "put up no defense — give them what they want, or run" (Handgun Control Inc. Chairman Pete Shields, Guns Don't Die - People Do, 1981, p. 125).
The New England Journal of Medicine is filled with expert advice about guns; just like Guns and Ammo has some excellent treatises on heart surgery.
One should consult an automotive engineer for safer seatbelts, a civil engineer for a better bridge, a surgeon ...
The Filipino jeepney is a contraption of materials classified as junk by other countries.more...
A typical jeepney, for example, contains these mixed components:
- engine from Isuzu,
- transmission from Mitsubishi,
- brakes from Toyota
- steering wheel from Hyundai,
- differentials from Nissan
Materials for building a jeepney are sourced from so-called "surplus" shops. These shops import second-hand or junk vehicles mostly from Japan and Korea, and sell the dismembered parts for jeepney assemblies.
Filipino jeepneys are not built on rules:
- They do not follow automotive safety standards.
- There are no standards in build quality.
- There are no design plans.
- They are built based on builder's experience.
- a "Jeepney engineer", as opposed to a true automotive engineer, can be anyone. Can be a backyard mechanic, a welder, a tinsmith, or a combination of them.
Public safey is never an issue for both jeepney and driver. There are no safety tests, no safety certificates, no driver training. Newly-built jeepneys are considered as "road-worthy", jeepneys get legal license plates even if built by backyard mechanics, and can be used as public transport.
"The unique thing about jeepneys is that no jeepney is exactly the same as another." As mentioned previously, that's because there are no design rules to build a jeepney. Only 1 simple rule: If it fits, its good enough to use.
Japanese Aftermarket parts manufacture for over 30 years. Also competitors in D1, JGTC, Drag and road racing to promote they're products and tuning capabilities. HKS was the first company to create an upgraded turbocharger for production vehicles.
HKS stands for Hiroyuki Hasegawa, a former engineer for Yamaha Motor Company, and his partner Mr.Kitagawa, the two secured a capital infusion from Sigma Automotive Co., Ltd.
I have many HKS parts in my Sw20
I saw the HKS 180sx run a 7.1 1/4 mile pass.
VDub was a parody tagline, used in a short series of commercials for German car manufacturer Volkswagen. As part of a 2006 advertising campaign for Volkswagen, advertising agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky created a series of three television commercials directed by Jonas Åkerlund, starring Swedish actor Peter Stormare as an effete German engineer named Wolfgang, and German model Zonja Wöstendiek as his assistant Miss Helga. The ads were created as a parody of MTV's Pimp My Ride.
The commercials began airing in late February 2006. Prior to the full launch of the TV campaign, the three 30-second spots became something of an internet phenomenon when popular automotive news website Leftlane News uploaded the ads to video distribution service YouTube. As of early March 2006, the ads had received over two million views on YouTube. Three years later, that number was over 10 million. The Term used for Volkswagen's cars "VDub" as a parody became so popular that fans and owners started to use it for their cars and VW's in general.
Yo man! I just tuned the suspension of my Vdub! You ready to go join Eurotrash ?!
Carpenters of time, or time hackers (east coast USA slang). Those who use expend personal time to devote to the study of measuring natural processes in relation to biosurvival markets.
Basically, the people who have tons of old military grade time pieces and who are interested in the preservation of the history of chronology, but who will never wear a watch on their arm.
"Time = Money = sqrt(all evil)" is a common phrase used in the community.
Ex: The 1950's chronopunks movement revolved around automotive engineers who cheated at winning international land speed records by reducing mass under the road while competition of Operation Paperclip Engineers and Cal-Tech were having status issues.
Ex: Chronoarnarchists are a blend of cryptoanarchist and systems engineer these days. The stoned guy who is always anal about the time server being set right.
