A Message

I am not a religious person. I see the evil and chaos that exist in the world, and that have existed since the beginning of time, and simply cannot have blind faith in anything.

I do, however, appreciate the message of peace and goodwill to all; well, at least almost to all. I also appreciate the faithful readers of this blog. I want to mention two by name, 56PackardMan and photobyjohnbo. I have never met either “author” nor spoken to them voice-to-voice, but their support of Disaffected Musings is VERY much appreciated.

******************

On this day in 1878 Louis Chevrolet was born in Switzerland. Of course, his name lives on in the company he “co-founded” in 1911 with William C. Durant.

Chevrolet was a race car driver and self-taught automotive engineer. His brother, Gaston, won the Indianapolis 500 in 1920. Not surprisingly, Louis became disenchanted working with Durant and sold his share in Chevrolet to Durant in 1915.

It is amazing to me how many of the names of the automotive founding fathers still live on and the vast majority of people are simply unaware. Buick, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Ford, Honda, Lamborghini, Maserati, Renault, Rolls-Royce and Toyota (Toyoda) are all named after the people that founded, or co-founded, the company.

In closing, I will show my two favorite Chevrolets of all time, a 1967 Corvette convertible and my 2016 Corvette Z06:

  1. Like you, I’m not overly religious, however that doesn’t stop me from wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas.

  2. It is amazing how many people are not really aware of the personalities that built the auto industry. Not just the individuals but the numerous ways their paths crossed as so many of them worked for or with each other.
    It was this thought that in part led me to start my book review blog. The old Crestline series is pretty good for filling in much of that info. I plan on re-reading and reviewing my copy of AQ’s ‘The Buick: A Complete History’. I find it interesting stuff.
