Three questions and requests.

I’d like to get in touch with Gary Johnson’s (LP) marketing/PR team to offer my photography services. I think the visuals on his web site and print materials can be much improved and I would be willing to provide the time. If you have the contact info, please share or make an introduction.

Does anyone know what was the first car model to have a designation that wasn’t either sequential (Model A, B or 1,2,3) or descriptive (such as “touring car”)?

I am still looking for a TGS-104 video cable or a functional equivalent. If none are available for purchase, could I have one custom made?

  1. I’m certainly qualified and willing to help you with the cable, but I can’t find any specs on it.

    I sit on the executive committee for the Libertarian Party of Kentucky. I have just escalated this request to the KY campaign coordinator as well as the LPKY state chair, plus several other highly placed individuals in the Libertarian Party of Indiana.

    Thank you for your support of Governor Gary Johnson!

    The Model “T” was produced from 1908 through 1927. Ford then began manufacturing the Model “A” from 1927 through 1931.

    From Wiki –

    “By 1914, the assembly process for the Model T had been so streamlined it took only 93 minutes to assemble a car. That year Ford produced more cars than all other automakers combined. The Model T was a great commercial success, and by the time Henry made his 10 millionth car, 50 percent of all cars in the world were Fords. It was so successful that Ford did not purchase any advertising between 1917 and 1923; more than 15 million Model Ts were manufactured, reaching a rate of 9,000 to 10,000 cars a day in 1925, or 2 million annually,[29][30][31] more than any other model of its day, at a price of just $240. Model T production was finally surpassed by the Volkswagen Beetle on February 17, 1972.

    Henry Ford’s ideological approach to Model T design was one of getting it right and then keeping it the same; he believed the Model T was all the car a person would, or could, ever need. As other companies offered comfort and styling advantages, at competitive prices, the Model T lost market share. Design changes were not as few as the public perceived, but the idea of an unchanging model was kept intact. Eventually, on May 26, 1927, Ford Motor Company ceased production and began the changeovers required to produce the Model A.[32]”

    Wikipedia says: “In 1893, Karl Benz created the Victoria, a two-passenger automobile with a 2.2 kW (3.0 hp) engine, …”
    And even older: “In 1801, Richard Trevithick constructed an experimental steam-driven vehicle (Puffing Devil) …”
