Hi Bill, long time no see. I remember asking this myself years ago, the answer I got was rather hollow, so hollow I am too tired to remember what the rational was. Part was due to 'negative ground/earth' becoming the industrial norm, and AC being 'easier' on electric componants? or some such things like that'. I have a generator off a fergie that makes 114 volts... enough to power a North American power point/outlet...IF... it was AC instead of DC... this is what makes the Amish smile when we talk like this...

Hi Tony,

Yeah, long time no see. I am fine, I think. A little disheartened maybe.
California, or this area of it has a very pleasant climate. Even if it is so different from Norway. It is pleasant to walk out in the morning in the socks or without and feel that the concrete is still warm from the day before. Would never happen in Norway.

Wish I had a place to tinker with tractors. And, disheartened because of the lack of American cars and enthusiasm. That is really really sad. I had thought I would come to a country where people were proud of their products. But no such thing anymore. But, it seems to be more important with foreign stuff. Exotic, well, you can"t make a country prosper by buying everything from other countries. I know it my sound selfish, but people has to care for their own countries. USA can not prosper trying to build the economy in China and all other countries in the world, and neither can any other countries either. It works for a little while, then it starts going downhill.

Well Tony, sorry for my rant. I hope you are well and everything goes fine over on the other coast.

American cars were becoming depressing by the late 60's, the with the oil embargo of '73, owning an 8 mile per gallon Buick or mercury was like being punished! By the time Chrysler got things going again in the 80's, it was all built with German and Japanese drive trains! The addiction to petroleum is the whole evil plot in a nutshell... that has to change. It's not the US made vehicle, labor, technology or designs... mater of fact, I hear US made trucks, heavy equipment and locomotives are still the most popular when sold around the world. And rich Chinese are on a waiting list for new Buicks!!!
