April 1929 "The Alexander Aircrafter"

Alexander Eaglerock, Bullet and Flyabout

The Alexander Aircraft Company published "The Alexander Aircrafter" series monthly in the late 20’s and early 30’s. The Eaglerock aircraft were built in the Denver suburb of Englewood and after the factory burned, in Colorado Springs Colorado. The company was started by a couple of brothers who were in the film industry and wanted an airplane to deliver their films. They could not find an available aircraft that was suitable, so designed one. The Eaglerock series became very popular and for a time, were producing more aircraft than anyone in the world. Al Mooney of Mooney Aircraft fame was a designer for Alexander Aircraft. The magazine contains period photographs and articles about their aircraft and articles about aviation in general. It measures 7 7/8 inches by 5 ½ inches. The issues were known for their colorful and often whimsical covers.

Up for auction is an April 1929 issue. The binding worn and slightly separated. There is minor dirt on the front and back covers. I would consider it in good condition. It contains 22 pages.

Thu, 05 May 2011 00:00:00 -0700

General Motors on Thursday posted net income of $3.2 billion for the first quarter, its fifth straight quarterly profit since emerging from bankruptcy. Stripping out one-time charges and gains, including $1.6 billion in income from the March sale of GM's ownership in Delphi Automotive, GM earned $2 billion before interest and taxes. GM's net income for the January-through-March period a year earlier was $865 million.

Audi working with Mazda on Wankel for A1 e-Tron?

Sat, 11 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0700

The Audi A1 e-Tron could be getting a Mazda Wankel Last year at the Geneva Motor Show, Audi showed us another in its seemingly endless line of fantasy e-Tron cars. But instead of being a pointless supercar with a pile of batteries bolted underneath to wreck the handling with all their weight – for the three feet you can actually drive with your foot to the floor before you run out of juice – this e-Tron was a different beast altogether. Not only was the Geneva 2010 e-Tron a properly sensible city car – the Audi A1 - but it came with a range extender so you could actually use this Audi A1 e-Tron beyond the confines of its electric charge.

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid (2013) will cost £50k

Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid will cost £50k The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid will start production in 2012 with 1,000 cars, each likely to cost around £50,000. We really like the Volvo V60, and despite our general antipathy towards hybrid platforms – particularly in smaller cars – we also really like the idea of the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid. With its 4WD – thanks to something Volvo call ERAD (Electric Rear Axle Drive) – and 2.4 litre diesel working with an electric motor producing 70 horses, the V60 plug-in can offer the best of both worlds – economy and performance – albeit at a price.
