Saturday Car Thread 4/26/2014 - [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

Welcome to the Saturday car thread.

Buckle up and hide your open containers.

The UAW is still making noise. Despite the NLRB's surprising certification of the vote in Chattanooga and despite the UAW pulling back to rethink their strategy, they just won't go away. If they were looking to set precedent by disallowing for interaction between labor and all other parties, casting them out on to an island by themselves, free from all influence (other than that of the UAW, of course) then they have failed. And, thank God for that. but, But, BUT! It's all for the workers! Isolation is good for them, right?

Now, they aim to rake Governor Haslam over the coals for reneging (suspending) on an offer of $300M in incentives to VW, allegedly due to their cooperation with the UAW vote. This approach means that they can continue with the muckraking but won't be left holding the hot potato should VW decide to build their SUV in Mexico.

You can follow the UAW drama whining on twitter or, alternately, just look below for a snapshot of their current activities.

If ever you are in Stuttgart, you might want to drop in and visit the Motorworld complex.

Far beyond the borders of Germany, the magical place on the edge of the southern German city of Böblingen has become a national and international scene rendezvous. Allen, for classic cars, collectors' cars, sports cars and motorcycles are more than just practical means of locomotion, a hotspot is offered, which has no equal.

The attractive architecture of the monumental buildings of the former country airport Württemberg is combined with modern buildings. A high striking glass tower, "Tower 66", part of the building complex is open for visitors on the Approach via the A81 from far away to see.

The MOTOR WORLD is more than just a location for vintage and collectors' cars. With the above-average development of the excellent with the Real Estate Award in the metropolitan region of Stuttgart project to this extent no one expected. In the first year after opening in 2009, we recorded over 500,000 visitors and guests, at an annual rate of increase in the double-digit percentage range.

If you would like to spend more than just a day taking it in, you can spend a night in the V8 Hotel. All the travel sites rate it very near a 5-star experience, with the average rating being about a 4.8.

The video below is in German, but it's really the images that make it worth the watch.

First: I would really love to visit there. Second: This the USA. The home of Henry Ford and of the Corvette. Do we have anything here in the US that compares?

Name that car...

Perhaps the aggressive styling will provide a clue. (Answer provided farther down the post)

Anyone who blames the automobile for the pollution in cities, should watch this to see how they improved the situation:

Now, for the Moronettes:

And, for the Morons:

Answer to the 'Name that car' segment: It's the Marussia B2, Russia's first Super Car. The Ma Russia. Get it? Here's Top Speed's review of the 2012 model.

Please feel free to send any complaints or commendations to me at Twitter: Nied's Dead Horse.
