Did you forgot, in my opinion anyway, the greatest detective car of all time? Columbos 1959 Peugeot 403 convertible. If a car could define one's personality, that one certenally did Columbos.
Wikipedia says this about the car:
"While on duty, Columbo does not drive an official LAPD car; he prefers to drive his own car, a French automobile, a 1959 Peugeot 403 convertible which is equipped with a police radio. In the earlier series, the car used was clearly royal blue at one time although faded and sun-damaged. In the later series the car seems to be "primer"-colored. Columbo says he parks his car in the shade because the sun ruins the paint. The California license plate is damaged in later episodes, but is clearly shown undamaged in episode 1 of season 1 from both the front and back as "044 APD"."
"Peter Falk selected the car personally, after seeing it in a parking lot at Universal Studios. In season 5 episode "Identity crisis", Columbo boasts that the car is a rare automobile, "only three like it in the States". From June 1956 to July 1961 only 2,050 were produced, and only 504 were produced for model year 1959. Columbo's car frequently has mechanical problems."
"When the series returned on ABC, James and Connie Delaney of Findlay, Ohio owned the car but were unwilling to sell it, though they lent it to Universal for filming."
Charles, Two Lane Blacktop is a bit of a cult film from 1971
but when you have the singer James Taylor as the driver of a '55 Chevy street rod and Dennis Wilson (the drummer of the Beach Boys) as his mechanic, and they are racing a 1970 GTO across the United States for pink slips, you've got yourself a car movie! :)
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
