Beautiful losers

The good die young
Building cars was, is and always will be a cut-throat endeavour. The last few years alone have taught us that not every automaker, no matter how large or legendary, can weather the ebbs and tides of shifting resources and tastes. Take Saab, the once successful Swedish firm that went from winning rallies to filing bankruptcy papers.
But there were others – many others – that rode a wave of anticipation to the production line, only to go belly-up shortly thereafter. Arguably the most famous of these is set to be auctioned on 9 March: the Tucker.
On the eve of that car’s impending sale, we present a survey of some of the most memorable cars that, like James Dean, burned hot and died young.

James Bond’s Lotus submarine heads to auction

The auction lot number has not yet been released, but “007” seems a fitting choice.

The fully functioning Lotus Esprit submarine piloted by James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me has been consigned by RM Auctions for its coming sale in London this September.

The car, which was nicknamed Wet Nellie on the set of the 1976 film, is based on a 1977 Series I Esprit and, according to RM, cost $100,000 to convert to submarine duty. Though other Esprits were used in the film, Nellie commanded the most screen time.
RM cites a curious post-production narrative for the car. After filming, the Esprit entered a storage unit in Long Island, New York, which had been paid upfront for a decade. But when subsequent billings went delinquent, the unit’s contents were offered in a blind auction, with no indication of what they might be. A local couple entered the winning bid (undisclosed by RM), and discovered the car under blankets when they opened the unit. After authentication, the vehicle was on show briefly at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, but has been rarely displayed publically since emerging from its Long Island exile.
RM did not reveal a pre-auction estimate for the Esprit, arguably the second most recognisable Bond car of all time, but Meghan McGrail, an RM spokeswoman, said the Esprit was expected to fetch over £500,000 ($760,000). The original Bond car, an Aston Martin DB5 used in 1964’s Goldfinger, was sold by the company for £2.9m at its London sale in 2010.
The Esprit will be offered without reserve at RM’s Battersea sale on 8 to 9 September.

An Arctic summer adventure

Icy paradise
Located halfway between Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is an extraordinary archipelago home to seabirds, polar bears, reindeers and marine mammals that have adapted to life in this frosty escape. In May and June the ice retreats and the tundra clears of snow, with temperatures remaining steadily above zero until September – making this the best time of year to explore the numerous islands. Humans are the minority this far north, with only 2,500 people calling Svalbard home year-round, compared to an estimated 3,000 polar bears. When travelling outside the settlements, residents are required to carry a rifle for their own protection. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic Stock)

Frozen in time
Svalbard has a diverse geology, and because most of the land is barren and untouched it provides a unique look into the stages of Earth's development. From mountains and canyons to wetland plains and lagoons, there is much more than just icy tundra to discover. For both geologists and adventurers, this land is a mecca like no other. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic Stock)

The midnight sun
From the end of April to the end of August, the sun never sets on Svalbard. It rests calmly above the horizon looking down upon the oceans of ice, before a hiatus from October to February when it is rarely seen. This constant daylight makes summer the ideal time for adventurous activities and exploration, such as guided cruises, hiking, dog-sledding or kayaking around glaciers. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic Stock)

Arctic coral
The vibrant anemones and soft corals in Svalbard's icy waters are nourished by nutrients washing off the shore and dropping into the ocean from seabirds. This unexpected and beautiful biodiversity may be too frigid for some divers to explore, but those with experience and a high tolerance for the cold will be rewarded with icebergs, kelp forests, encounters with whales and seals and a rich ecological diversity in the reefs – but be prepared to bring your own heavily insulated equipment. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic Stock)

You sly fox
Dovekie flocks, small arctic birds native to the region, fertilise the summer terrain with their remains, turning the barren tundra into a mossy green landscape. This is an ideal lurking ground for the arctic fox, a hunter that preys on birds, such as puffins, and their eggs to feed her pups. (Paul Nicklen/National Geographic Stock)

Nevada City car show attracts vintage auto fans

Diehard foreign car fans braved the heat in downtown Nevada City to check out the beautiful cars at the 3rd Annual Nevada City Foreign Car & Motorcycle Show recently.

The weather was hot, however the turnout was great. Nearly 100 registrants lined up their gorgeous automobiles on Broad Street.

The band, Blended Metal Saxophones, played while people strolled past the vintage foreign cars and motorcycles.

There were two winners chosen by the public.

The People’s Choice winners for best car were Scott and Theresa McLaughlin of Nevada City for their 1967 356C Porsche. The People’s Choice winner for best motorcycle was Grass Valley’s Dave Molloy and his 1969 BSA Victor Special.

The Sierra Sports Car Group, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Nevada County collaborated on the event, with proceeds benefitting the Chamber and United Way of Nevada County.

There was a raffle with some great prizes: a wine stroll, a pub crawl and fun things for the kids to do. There are still commemorative T-shirts and beer mugs available with a donation to United Way.

This annual competition has become a popular event for Nevada City with people from all over California participating.

Foxconn, as long as a cough, apple must have caught a cold?

     If something sounded familiar about Lorraine Luk's headline in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal -- As Apple Feels Bite, Hon Hai Looks to Diversify -- it may be because we've heard that tune a lot lately.
    Just in the past three weeks, journalists have attributed to Apple's (AAPL) loss of "steam" everything from Harvard's divestiture of a few hundred Apple shares to the structure of Sharp's survival plan. (See The business wires' new verbal tic.)
    To be sure, one can legitimately write that Apple has had an unusually long stretch without a product launch. Or that its profit margins have pulled back quite a bit from their historic highs. Or that its earnings fell year over year last quarter for the first time since 2003, and are likely to do it again this quarter.
    But Apple's all-important iOS shipments, as the chart above shows, are still growing nicely.
    So to interpret this quote from an unnamed Hon Hai executive ...
    "As our production capacity has grown to such a large scale and existing major-brand customers offer limited order growth, we need to actively expand our client base to help increase our manufacturing volume."
    ... as referring specifically to Apple -- as Luk did in Monday's Journal -- is to ignore the fact that Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn, has other major-brand clients, and that most of them are hurting.
    Take Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Dell (DELL), two Window's PC vendors that subcontract their assembly work to Foxconn. How's that business doing? See chart below:
    What about Nintendo, Sony (SNE) and Microsoft (MSFT)? Their game consoles are also assembled in Foxconn's factories:

    How about Amazon's (AMZN) Kindle readers? Foxconn builds those things too:
