to complete the picture, Dacia where actually Romanian, using Renault licences and tooling.

I think it was the R8 (which I had in 1968!) that fathered the Dacia 1100. Rear engine.

Those with a management itch continue with stuff like operations research and the likes.

Even for Deming & Juran, guess what the ever returning main theme was.
(and it has little to do with obsession)

Could be, yes. I think I confused it with Skoda which are now part of the VW concern.

You mean we still haven't outgrown Deming Circles? Amazing!
They were all the fashion when I did QA at Dutch Air Force contractors longer ago than I care to admit!

Our cars are stone stock- they do a fine job of getting us from point A to point B. Likewise, our guns are stone stock and do a fine job of allowing a slug or pellets to get from our hands to the target. I suppose that if I used a silver barrel and demagnetized powder, then used a green marker to put a line around the magazine, the slug would make a more meaningful impact on the target.

that defaults to cars on audio forums.

And within the subset of cars (using cars as a generic term) I have yet to see Monster Trucks, and the like, ever mentioned. Yet those are masterful engineering efforts too. Hmmm, maybe those are not seen as not having cooth in these here parts.

.........Carry on, I just find it interesting.

Come to think of it, not much about boats or telescopes either. Hmmmm stereos and cars? At least I haven't seen this thread meander to fine wine and cigars
We had a brief detour through wines a while back Robert. It occasioned some protests as well. No cigars as yet that I noticed. As well, since that smoke plates out on things audio.

Dan tells me the preamp got a good review. What magazine?

I don't know much about guns, and I once tried to compare telescopes, but the same 'critics' put me down for it.
