HORCH - What the **** of a name is that?
Automotive history: The factory/vehicles are named after the founder August Horch. For some reason, left Horch his factory as early as in 1909 but founded soon after another. For the naming of the new factory he loosely translated the meaning of his name to Latin wich became Audi!
Later became both Horch and Audi factories part of the four-brand association: Auto Union, of wich the most probably remembers the interwar period German racecars. Though surviving as brand in several formations until 1969 it became the re-lived Audi brand wich inherited the logo with the four interconnecting rings in the mid 60's and one could claim there is a line between this truck and the range of Audi cars today.

Hi Jeff,

 

I just stumbled onto this thread.

 

RT beat me easily to the Culver Dart G ID, but the one in post #105 looks like one of them engine-driven mortars or a tennis ball cannon.

 

Seriously, no idea, but could be a blower used as a heater on cold days (drape a cover over the engine and insert large quantities of warm air to start it.).

 

Hey! You're about as old as I am. We should be friends .... Where'd you get that younger woman? Robbing the craddle?

My lovely wife Diana is six years younger than me. Her parents were also 6 years apart in age.

I'm going to go with you on this one. That skeet shooter is very small, but an engine heater

is all I could guess it is also. There are not that many staff there to ask and this exhibit had

no sign. I will ask someone if they are around next spring for some answers.

Sounds reasonable as there seems to be a sort of solenoid and by-pass on the side, wich can be thought to work as a thermostate :-/

As I dont find any enemies in here, we all are to consider freinds - or?
But You're probably just softtalking to lure out Jeffs tricks around the other sex ;-)

In reality, Jeff and I have posted and swapped PMs for some years, Armand. Just bantering as you suspected.

 

As far as I'm concerned, I'm friends with everyone in here. No axe to grind, here.

Thank you Armand. I sent a PM to Paolo for help. I am not computer literate enough to

know the problem. Hopefully when my wife gets a few minutes she can help. The USAF

Museum pictures have also shriveled up into small boxes with Xs on them also...?
