Jules Bonnot
Jules Joseph Bonnot (October 14, 1876 – April 28, 1912) was a French anarchist bank robber famous for his involvement in a criminal anarchist organization dubbed "The Bonnot Gang" by the French press. He viewed himself as a professional and avoided bloodshed, preferring to outwit his targets. Often posing as a businessman, his taste in expensive clothing earned him the pseudonym "Le Bourgeois" among comrades.Contents1 Youth 2 Criminal path 3 The Bonnot Gang 4 Death 5 ReferencesYouth[edit] Bonnot was born on October 14, 1876 in Pont-de-Roide, a town in Doubs, France

Coachbuilding
A coachbuilder is a manufacturer of bodies for passenger-carrying vehicles.[note 1] Coachwork is the body of an automobile or a bus or a horse-drawn passenger vehicle. The word "coach" was derived from the Hungarian town of Kocs.[1] By extension, "coach" also may be used for a railroad passenger car or railway carriage. Custom or bespoke bodies require a rolling chassis to avoid the vast expense of designing and building a suitable unibody or monocoque structure. While the enormous cost of suitable machinery to make steel structures may be avoided by moulding synthetic materials for one-off bodies the high costs of structural design and development remain prohibitively expensive. As well as true custom or bespoke bodies, coachbuilders also made short runs of more-or-less identical bodies to the order of dealers or the manufacturer of a chassis. The same body design might then be adjusted to suit different brands of chassis

Burlington Cars
Burlington Cars was a British kit car company originally based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. They moved to Northampton in 1988 becoming the Burlington Motor Company reforming as the Burlington Design Group in 1989. Kit production seems to have stopped in around 1992. Founded by Haydn Davis the cars were at first of the "plan and pattern" car) type similar to the JC Midge. Like the Midge it uses a Triumph donor and constructs a body of plywood on top of it, i.e. a body-on-frame design. As of 2008, the plans have been made available again for home constructors. Burlington car models[edit]Burlington SS, a Morgan copy, later sold as Dorian SS.[1]The early SS had no doors and only the top flat parts of the bonnet halves opened. The SS MK2 was provided with doors and full opening bonnet halves. It could also be built as a 4 seater.Burlington Arrow, a two-seat, doorless roadster with cycle wings (based on the MG TC) inspired by the 1935 Triumph Dolomite Straight Eight

Napier was founded as a precision engineering company in 1808 and for nearly a century produced machinery for the financial, print and munitions industries. In the early 20th century it moved for a time into internal combustion engines and road vehicles before turning to aero engines. Its powerful Lion dominated the UK market in the 1920s and the Second World War era Sabre produced 3500 hp (2,600 kW) in its later versions. Many world speed records on land and water, as well as the Hawker Typhoon

Mercedes-Benz W143
The Mercedes-Benz Typ 230 n was introduced by Mercedes-Benz in 1937 as a successor to the Typ 230 (W 21). [1] It was one of several models over the space of nearly eight decades to be sold with a name along the lines "Mercedes-Benz 230", and is therefore in retrospect more normally named according to its internal works designation as the Mercedes-Benz W 143Contents1 Mercedes-Benz Typ 230 n (1937) 2 Mercedes-Benz Typ 230 (1937–1941)2.1 Diesel sibling 2.2 Commercial3 References 4 External linksMercedes-Benz Typ 230 n (1937)[edit] The car was initially built with the same 2,700 mm (110 in) wheelbase as the Typ 200 (W 21).

Preselector Gearbox
A preselector or self-changing[1] gearbox is a type of manual gearbox (US: transmission) used on a variety of vehicles, most commonly in the 1930s. The defining characteristic of a preselector gearbox is that the manual shift lever is used to "pre-select" the next gear to be used, then a separate control (a foot pedal) is used to engage this in one single operation, without needing to work a manual clutch.[1] Most pre-selector transmissions avoid a driver-controlled clutch entirely. Some use one solely for starting off.[2] Preselector
Preselector
gearboxes are not automatic gearboxes, although they may have internal similarities. A fully automatic gearbox is able to select the ratio used; with a preselector gearbox, gear selection remains the driver's decision. There are several radically different mechanical designs of preselector gearbox
