Chatter From the President

Here we are in a New Year with hopes of Covid being a distant memory of the past. We all are looking forward to our meetings, car shows and gatherings that we all missed in 2020. With the help from above these and many more will come to us in this year.

For our Christmas dinner I wanted to put a little pizzazz in our desert, and as you know there is so much out there on the internet that cooking can be sooooo much more than your everyday dinner or desert. In making my Pumpkin Pie I added some bourbon, to make it really interesting it was “Wild Turkey”. Who knows what I will do next year if they keep us locked down. If anyone wants the recipe drop me a line and I will be happy to send it to you.

Happy New Year,

Patsy Hamlin

HARRIS TOUR 2020

And NOW the rest of the story

I must say that the views and overlooks turned out to be worth all of the’ roundabout rouleBe ‘ we had to play to get there! AGer leaving the monument we stopped in Green River, Utah for lunch in the park, then disposed of the last 90 miles to Salina, Utah in short order. WaiMng for us there were dear V8 friends ScoB and Judi Bringhurst, who had agreed to drive their recently purchased ’53 Ford Indianapolis 500 Pace Car down from their home in Salt Lake City to join us for some Mre kicking and dinner, and to spend the night. The group enjoyed dinner at Mom’s Café, a Salina landmark eatery – excellent food. ScoB Bringhurst took this opportunity to present Dan Krehbiel with a Ford hat as a thank you for repairing a fuel line on his Pace Car that had refused to start shortly aGer arriving in town. When it came Mme to pay the bill the waitress told us to simply come up to the cash register, tell her what we had to eat, and she tallied the bill right there. No check, just a complete honor system!!

D ay 7 – our final tour day. Our assignment today was to drive the 245 miles to Mesquite, Nevada for the night, and to see and enjoy as much scenery and lay back touring as we could. We took US 89 south, through the small Utah towns of Marysvale, Circleville, JuncMon, and Panguitch. In JuncMon we pulled into a Phillips 66 service staMon to use the restrooms. Behind the counter was a gentleman who welcomed some travelers to talk to, and it turned out he used to live in Orange County, Ca. but abandoned the hecMc life there and seBled in to a simple life in JuncMon – populaMon 1287. I apologized for bringing a group of travelers who’s only need was his restrooms, and he just smiled and said we could help ourselves, and maybe someone would by a snack in his store. You meet some wonderful people out in rural America! From JuncMon our next stop was to be Cedar Breaks NaMonal Monument, another collecMon of majesMc peaks, deep valleys, and nature at it’s best on display. We ascended to nearly 11,000 feet, and stopped at a jaw dropping scenic overlook before descending into Cedar City for lunch in Canyon Park. The next and last scenic stop was at Kolob Canyons, a part of Zion NaMonal Park, but a separate unit with it’s own access road. All it had to offer was more ‘ho hum’ scenic canyons, and 1000 foot cliffs of red clay! An hour and a half later saw us in Mesquite, where we all seBled into a very impressive Best Western Inn. The intrepid tour leaders were provided the PresidenMal Suite as a thankyou for bringing so many guests to the establishment, so everyone was invited to bring their drinks and snacks of choice to the Suite for a final get-together. Dinner followed at a restaurant a short walk away, thus ending the 2020 HARRIS TOUR.We hope all of you had a great Mme on this year’s Tour!

History of the automobile

Internal Combustion Engines

Main article: History of steam road vehicles

Gas Mixtures

And now MORE of the story!

Early attempts at making and using internal combustion engines were hampered by the

lack of suitable fuels, particularly liquids, therefore the earliest engines used gas mixtures.

Early experimenters used gases. In 1806, Swiss engineer François Isaac de Rivaz built an

engine powered by internal combustion of a hydrogen and oxygen mixture. In 1826,

Englishman Samuel Brown tested his hydrogen-fuelled internal combustion engine by using

it to propel a vehicle up Shooter's Hill in south-east London. Belgian-born Etienne Lenoir's

Hippomobile with a hydrogen-gas-fuelled one-cylinder internal combustion engine made a

test drive from Paris to Joinville-le-Pont in 1860, covering some nine kilometres in about

three hours.[23] A later version was propelled by coal gas. A Delamare-Deboutteville vehicle

was patented and trialled in 1884.

Gasoline[edit]

About 1870, in Vienna, Austria (then the Austro-Hungarian Empire), inventor Siegfried

Marcus put a liquid-fuelled internal combustion engine on a simple handcart which made

him the first man to propel a vehicle by means of gasoline. Today, this car is known as "the

first Marcus car". In 1883, Marcus secured a German patent for a low-voltage ignition

system of the magneto type; this was his only automotive patent. This design was used for

all further engines and the four-seat "second Marcus car" of 1888/89. This ignition, in

conjunction with the "rotating-brush carburetor", made the second car's design very

innovative. His second car is on display at the Technical Museum in Vienna. During his

lifetime, he was honored as the originator of the motorcar but his place in history was all but

erased by the Nazis during World War II. Because Marcus was of Jewish descent, the Nazi

propaganda office ordered his work to be destroyed, his name expunged from future

textbooks, and his public memorials removed, giving credit instead to Karl Benz.[24]

Several inventors developed their own version of practical automobiles with petrol/gasoline-

powered internal combustion engines in the last two decades of the 19th century: Karl Benz

built his first automobile in 1885 in Mannheim. Benz was granted a patent for his

automobile on 29 January 1886,[25] and began the first production of automobiles in 1888,

after Bertha Benz, his wife, had proved – with the first long-distance trip in August 1888,

from Mannheim to Pforzheim and back – that the horseless coach was capable of extended

travel. Since 2008 a Bertha Benz Memorial Route commemorates this event.[26

Soon after, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach in Stuttgart in 1889 designed a vehicle

from scratch to be an automobile, rather than a horse-drawn carriage fitted with an engine.

They also are usually credited with invention of the first motorcycle in 1886, but Italy's

Enrico Bernardi of the University of Padua, in 1882, patented a 0.024 horsepower (17.9 W)

122 cc (7.4 cu in) one-cylinder petrol motor, fitting it into his son's tricycle, making it at least

a candidate for the first automobile and first motorcycle.[8]:p.26 Bernardi enlarged the tricycle

in 1892 to carry two adults.[8]:p.26

The first four-wheeled petrol-driven automobile in Britain was built in Walthamstow by

Frederick Bremer in 1892.[27] Another was made in Birmingham in 1895 by Frederick

William Lanchester, who also patented the disc brake.]
