Week 51 2014, from December 22nd.



1956. This two-door, four-seat fiberglass concept was both a design
and technology pioneer of its time. The long hood with sloping nose and
recessed headlights from the bumper was a revolutionary automotive style.
Its "wing-type" rear fenders would preview cues later found on the 1959 Buicks.
The Centurion also featured front seats that would slide back when
the doors were opened and it even previewed a screen in the dashboard
that would display images from its rear-view camera.

The ideal automobile to drive to your parents in Florida coming Christmas.
The last of the three Wildcat concepts designed by Harley Earl,
Wildcat III was much larger than its earlier siblings and also more realistic.
The four-seat convertible was powered by a 280 hp V-8 with four carburetors
and debuted many styling cues that would be found on 1956 and 1957
production Buick's, including parking and directional signal lights
housed in the prominent front bumper pods.

Representing a new era of Buick design in 2013 is this stunning concept
inspired by the natural movement of water. The Riviera is as progressive underneath
as it is on its ice-like surface. It features a dual-mode W-PHEV (wireless plug-in
hybrid electric vehicle) propulsion system, four-wheel steering, and an active
safety systems that processes information from 10 high-definition cameras.
Under the coupe's gull-wing doors is a 4G LTE internet connection with an integrated
information system that casts a holographic image onto the windshield.





This four-seat convertible, designed in Warren, Michigan and built in 2004
by renowned coachbuilder Bertone in Italy, was named after an elite class of soldiers
in Napoleon's army. Portholes on the front fenders and a rear deck contoured
in a boattail shape reminisce Buicks of the past. But under the hood
and driving the rear wheels is a pure modern technology in the form
of a 3.6L twin-turbocharged V-6 engine producing 400 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
A similar engine can now be found some of GM's latest vehicles.

Inspired by the Buick Y-Job, the Bengal concept is a sleek roadster
displaying retro cues and beautiful proportions with its wheels pushed to the corners.
A small third door behind the driver's door opened to reveal storage space
for golf bags or seating for two additional passengers. The Bengal's interior was
freed of the usual gauges and buttons, using a reconfigurable
color head-up display and relying on voice-activated commands
or use of a joystick on the steering wheel. It was powered by a 250 hp
supercharged 3.4-liter V-6 engine paired to a six-speed transmission.
More Buick concept cars.




Reviving the Wildcat name used on the trio of concepts in the 1950s,
this edgy prototype had a fully-functioning version that served as a Buick test
and data platform. Distinctly styled with a long rear deck, the Wildcat
had no traditional doors, but a canopy that raised and lowered
to allow access for its two passengers. Behind the cabin and powering
all four wheels sat a McLaren engine based on the Buick 3.8L V-6, with 24 valves,
dual overhead cams, and port fuel injection. A head-up display cast a wealth
of driver information onto the large windshield. The Wildcat's body
was constructed of lightweight carbon fiber and fiberglass.

Successor to the original Wildcat concept, which was primarily built to test
the use of fiberglass bodies, the Wildcat II was a distinctive new take
on the fiberglass-bodied sports convertible. Designed by Harley Earl's team,
the concept debut a unique front fender design that exposed its chrome-plated
front suspension. The headlamps were mounted under the leading edge of the fender cowl.
Power came from a 322 cu. in. supercharged V-8 engine.

Its design is unmistakably inspired by 1960’s futuristic aerospace influences
and though it was based on the earlier Firebird IV concept, the Century Cruiser
had its own significance. Aside from a refrigerator, television set, and
front luggage compartment that adjusted for easier access, this concept previewed
autonomous driving, something the industry is still working on today.
When the driver enters an “automatic highway,” the car was said toautomatically
drive its occupants to their exit, using a punch card with programmed route.
From there, the driver would take back control of the arm-wrest-mounted control grips.
The Century Cruiser also previewed a long-range two-way telephone
designed for hands-free use.

To put it mildly, Buick isn't the most exciting brand at the moment.
Its lineup consists of several very dull and uninspiring sedans and SUVs
aimed primarily at retirees who need something to ferry them between
the golf club and the grocery store. But it wasn't always like that,
and one independent designer, Marc Senger, thinks it's time for a re-think.
The Buick Wildcat concept is a rather adventurous design
which takes its influence from the 1954 Buick Wildcat II concept
– produced back when GM's designers worked for their money.
The role of the Wildcat would be to act as a halo car and
entice younger buyers to the brand.

More Buick concept cars.




The Buick Y-Job was the auto industry's first concept car, produced by Buick
(a division of General Motors), in 1938. Designed by Harley J. Earl, the car
had power-operated hidden headlamps, a "gunsight" hood ornament, electric windows,
wraparound bumpers, flush door handles, and prefigured styling cues used by Buick
until the 1950s and the vertical waterfall grille design still used by Buick today.
The car itself was actually driven for a number of years by Harley Earl, until he replace
it with a 1951 model car. Sometime after that, the car was restored
at the Henry Ford Museum, until 1993 when it was returned to
the GM Design Center.The "Y" in the name has two explanations:
All experimental cars were called "X", so Earl simply went
to the next letter in the alphabet. The "Y" designation was selected
by Earl because it was used extensively in the aviation industry denoting
the most advanced prototypes. In 2001, Buick recreated the Y-job
with modern advancement called the Buick Blackhawk drawing extensively
from the Y-job.

Wel lekker om even de stad uit te zijn. Sneeuwganzen gezien, op doortrek. Komende dagen donkere kamer denk ik, bewolkt en nat. Winterbanden onder de auto gedaan. Naomi Klein ook bij jullie doorgedrongen zag ik. Weet niet of ze zelf een auto heeft. Of misschien wel twee of drie? Haar research is overigens goed, maar de bestuurders van het land zien dat niet zo.

12:40 zagen buurtbewoners rookkolommen komen uit de ramen van de 8ste etage van het befaamde ronde gebouw van het Maison de la Radio in het 16e arrondissement van Parijs. Al snel kwam e rook zwarte rook uit andere ramen. Ruim drie uur lang waren de radio programma's van France Inter, France Info, France Musique en France Culture uit de lucht. Rond 16:00 uur was de brandweer die met groot materieel (16 wagens en 60 brandweerlieden) was uitgerukt de brand meester. Het ontstaan van de brand wordt toegeschreven aan een ongeluk tijdens renovatiewerkzaamheden op de 8ste etage. Hoewel volgens informatie het brandalarm niet was afgegaan is de evacuatie van de radio medewerkers uit het bedreigde gebouw vlot verlopen en waren er geen gewonden.

The second Tucker. Remember the first, historic Tucker, which sank down in a stock swindle? In 1955, 6 years after his acquittal by a federal court, Preston Tucker was back in the news again with a new car, the Tucker Carioca. The Carioca was designed by Alexis de Sakhnoffsky. Preston approached Alexis about helping him to put the Tucker number two down on paper. Being broke, bitter and hounded by creditors, Preston planned the Carioca to be his solution for his dream of mass producing a car. Preston wanted to build a cars that were fun to drive. His conception of a fun car was a sporty looking vehicle of intriguing design, whose performance was sparkling, and which could be sold in kit format at a profit of $1,000.
