Renault launched the six MH-type wheels in the early nineteen twenties, to cross the Sahara and facilitate communication between Algeria and French West Africa.

It paved the way for large African adventures with several expeditions between 1923 and 1925. Between Algeria and French West Africa, the Sahara was a barrier that the railway had not crossed.

Citroën launched its autochenilles in 1922 and the following year, Renault developed its six wheels. In fact, 12 wheels as they are matched in order to better "focus" on the sand.

 With their two rear drive axles, these cars combine good climbing ability and ease of use. End of December 1923 the first successful mission by rallying Touggourt Tozeur in two days. In the aftermath, the shipping Gradis-Estienne made in January 1924 joining Algeria-Niger. But the longest yet to come: November 15, 1924, Mr. and Mrs. Delingette, accompanied by Mr. Bonnaure mechanic, engage in crossing Africa, Colomb-Bechar in Cape Town! They do this on July 3, 1925, during the journey having passed the Citroën Central mission. An extraordinary adventure: 23,000 miles during which they have crossed 35 rivers by canoe and 129 bridges constructed or adapted

probably the only car influenced guitar amp ever made. The Peavey Wiggy

Diposting oleh Fatih rohmatillah



you can learn a lot about it at http://www.tdpri.com/forum/amp-central-station/313889-peavey-wiggy-amp-designed-dweezil-zappa.html

but you can read a bit from the designer, Dweezil Zappa:
After "Music For Pets" I designed an amp with Peavey called "Wiggy." This became my main amp for a while. It was solid state with an interesting low mid frequency graphic eq circuit. Tonally it was very reminiscent of the Acoustic amp Frank used in the mid 70's alongside his Marshall. The Wiggy is what I used when I recorded with Lisa Loeb on "Cake And Pie." At that time my main guitar became an Ernie Ball Albert Lee model. I didn't realize the subliminal effect of his signature on my tele until the time I started playing his signature model EB! He also played a very memorable solo on "What The Hell Was I Thinking?" I did many recordings for film and television with my "Wiggy" rig. At that time I began to take a serious interest in recording and engineering. Certain types of amps and effects were being developed as smaller alternatives to big amps. There was a system by Lexicon called MPXG2 which had a 6 watt rack mounted amp along with a multi effects processor. I used this for a lot of sessions including the Britney Spears cover song "Hit Me Baby One More Time." I liked the idea of such a compact guitar rig option. At the time it was not a complete solution for every kind of tone though. I also used it and my Wiggy amps for the album "Automatic." The song Automatic featured an effect in a TC electronics G-Force box. The first time played with the effect I started recording the song. There's also a cool wide stereo effect from a short delay made by an old ADA multi efx 4. I've added that into different versions of rigs since then specifically for that doubling effect. It was in the 2009 ZPZ rig and the 2011 ZPZ rig. The guitar orchestration for "The Grinch" and "Hawaii 5-O" is all done with the Lexicon and some crafty eq from an Orban Parametric Equalizer. Next I started experimenting and recording more stuff in the studio without amps. I made some strange sounding recordings for textures on "What The Hell Was I Thinking?" by running into different distortion boxes and then directly into channel strips on the console. I used Native Instruments Guitar Rig for several projects and many overdubs on my "Go with What You Know" CD. At that time I was also in development for a tube version of the Wiggy amp with Peavey. They never went to market with it but I used the prototype on "Go With What You Know." The Tube Wiggy is most notably heard on Noitpure and the solo in Fighty Bitey.

A Dino-ride From Pallie Jesse Hey pallies, likes our Dino knew it better then any other dude....the immense and immeasurable swankness of bein' able to tag 'nother man as "pallie." While all us Dino-philes know that our great man never ever needed anyone or anythin' besides himself in his life, our most beloved Dino enjoyed the pure pleasure of havin' fun times with his best pallies like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. And mere mortals likes ourselves are the same.

 Today, I want to salute a great pallie o'mine that I have met through his Dino-devotion here on the ol' web. His tag is Jesse, and he is a dude who primarily hangs his hat at his all-thin's-car pad, "Just A Car Guy." Likes if you clicks on the link to this Dino-gram you will be welcomed into Jesse's world. Jesse is located in San Diego, California and lists as his occupation: full time jobs, full time hobby, part time blogging.

 In addition to his huge huge passion for cars, Jesse is a great devotee of our man Dino and he graciously and generously often sends me fabulous Dino-treasure just to make sure that I have seen it before. And, sometimes Jesse shares Dino-related car posts at his amazin' blog...and, of course, in turn I share 'em with all your Dino-holicsas well.

 When I opened my email today, there was some Dino-patter from my pallie Jesse includin' an amazin' pix of our Dino on a ride that I have never ever seen before. And, Jesse shared these most kind and gracious words of Dino-appreciato....."keep doing what you do, cause you do it so well!" ilovedinomatin expresses our deepest of deepest thanks to pallie Jesse for showin' such constant devotion to our Dino and the ilovedinomatin cause of spreadin' the Dino-word."

 So dudes, enjoy the fabulous Dino-pose below courtesy of the best sort of pallie any Dino-devotee coulda have....Jesse! Dino-delightedly, DMP

As Dean Martin said at the end of this clip, "Thanks to you for looking in, so until next week, you be careful drvin' ... 'cause there's a shortage of nice people in the world."
