Tubitak is pretty much a Turkish government controlled institute. It is supposed to do a lot of basic research, but I’m really sceptical. Why? I do big science myself and I have never ever anything or anyone encountered that came from that institute which or who made enough of an impression to be remembered. And also, WTF is a ‘Turkish National…[Read more]
Today, while being on vacation in The Netherlands, I came across a 900SE convertible. This was a brick red one, same color as the 900S 4 door I had in the nineties. It always amazes me how good these 900’s look as a convertible. Somehow everything falls in place to make for a real cool car.
Every year I have the chance to educate the local Christmas tree guy about the merits of a hatchback. There are always amazed that my Viggen easily swallows up a 7 feet tree.
Merry Christmas from Long Island!

No, I’m not familiar with the SAUNA system, but a friend worked at the Vienna office for UN-CTBTO. SAUNA looks like a cute system, but probably has to detect the Xenon isotopes rather quickly since their half-life is only a couple of days at most. There must be quite a lot of these SAUNA systems set up all over the world to ‘triangulate’ an…[Read more]
Going lightweight is not a question of technology but rather of investment. My job is pretty much building nuclear and high energy particle detectors and we have moved to carbon fiber over the last 10 years because our support structures have to be light (less mass means that the nuclear reaction fragments/particles that you are trying to detect…[Read more]
Yeah, not saying that Tim is lying but something is wrong here. This isn’t a particular light car and the engine is not something very special. I could imagine that very careful highway driving could get you to […]

I don’t know what to do with this post.
It just makes me very, very sad.
GerritN commented on the post, Ex. Saab designers to Geely/Volvo – Who designs Saab? 2 years, 2 months ago
OK, so with the risk of sounding overly negative, sorry for that in advance.
Guys, face it, NEVS is designing cars for China. If you have seen all the Frankencopies of main stream Western cars driving around in […]
GerritN commented on the post, ORIO is the governmental owned parts company for Saab parts. 2 years, 2 months ago
“Why not start an owners co-op with ORIO. Saab owners sign up and pay a fee of lets say 1000 Dollars.”
Ha ha, you’re kidding right? Better use that $1,000 as part of the down payment for another car than a […]
FYI: Victor Muller not a suspect….
Hi, we’re the Dutch government, how do you want to be screwed today?
Even when you are an expatriate they still manage to get you. I left The Netherlands 20 years ago and I could tell you some stories about how […]
