Triumph Tr6 And Tr7

Jaguar XK 120 red orange 1949 Signature 1/18 Even though many of them are now working on hybrids, European automakers’ longstanding response to gasoline-electric vehicles—long championed by Japanese companies—has been to first scoff and then to point to their robust lineups of fuel-efficient diesel powertrains. Of course, diesels represent about 50 percent of the market in Europe, but they have never been offered widely in America. Fluctuating fuel prices are slowly beginning to change that, and while Euro diesels recently launched in the States have been installed in sedans and SUVs, small oil-burners make sense, too. After all, if a premium sedan with the economy of a compact is impressive, let’s see what happens when you drop a diesel in a compact.
The ritzy 2009 Audi A3 compact hatchback, based on the VW Golf/Rabbit but with a much more upscale look and interior, has long been available with diesel engines in Europe. Now Ingolstadt is pondering offering such a combo in the U.S., too. The vanguard: two A3 TDIs that served as part of the Audi Mileage Marathon, a long haul from New York to Los Angeles that gave scribes a chance to examine diesel economy in real-world conditions on American roads. (The U.S.-bound Q7 3.0 TDI was the featured vehicle of the event.)

The residual effects of the Enron (ENE) debacle are slowly, but surely, beginning to PERMEATE the investment landscape. In many instances it is hard to know whether the secondary problems are critically severe, or just a case of paranoid investors overreacting to ghosts. In 1997, ENE was a rather ordinary gas distribution company trading at $20/share. In the 1998-2000 period, the stock rocketed to nearly $85/share, because of celebrious views about their on-line commodity trading capabilities, an 18,000-mile fiber-optic cable and ultimately, the perceived 'rewards' from the California electricity crisis. Management gradually succumbed to the temptation to artificially inflate earnings with artful 'financial engineering' techniques and, all the while, they piled up debt and preferred...

Good Times:Morgan Stanley lost 5 Billion on RE..

April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley, once the biggest property investor among Wall Street banks, expects to lose $5.4 billion, or 61 percent, of its $8.8 billion global fund, said a person familiar with the situation.
The firm sent a fourth-quarter update to clients in recent weeks showing the 2007 fund was likely to recover $3.4 billion of its investments, said the person, who declined to be identified because the information isn’t public. A spokesman for New York-based Morgan Stanley declined to comment.
Morgan Stanley raised the fund, Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VI International, toward the end of the property surge when market prices were at or near the peak. At the time, it was the largest private fund targeting high-return real estate investments.

CIA Executive Director “Buzzy” Krongard managed firm that handled “PUT” options on United Airline Stock
Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the “put options” on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
Until 1997 A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A.B. Brown was acquired by Banker’s...
