Rotary Age Test If you remember when the newly designed Lincoln Zephyr was introduced in 1938 as the first really Streamlined car, you will also remember that it was years and years ahead of it's time. It competed with the Chrysler Air Flow. If you remember when you bought a Ford, in the 1930s, you could buy a Ford, or a Ford deluxe; and soon there after, a Ford Super deluxe, Then came Mercury in 1938 , a more super deluxe Ford, to fill in the gap between the Ford and Lincoln My father bought a 1941 Ford that he put over 200,000 miles on. By that time the cars were beginning to be being designed for beauty with whitewall tires. IT'S A PUZZLEMENT Alas, I had my April Fools joke last week. I made up that story about Horace Greeley and the cub reporter starting April Fools jokes. Well, the true story, or at least the one that makes the most sense to me: Where did April Fools’ Day come from? The true origins of April Fools’ Day remain unknown and are probably lost to history, but theories abound, of course. One story goes that April Fools’ Day began with France’s 1564 Edict of Roussillon, which decreed that New Year’s Day, historically observed on Easter by Christians, was moved to January 1. In those days there was no CNN or BBC, and it took a long time for many people to get the word. Those who did not were teased. April Fools day is called April Fish in France “Poisson d’avril.”. In Anglophone countries, it’s April fool, in Scotland, April Gowk, in Brazil, day of the lie. In France, April Fools day is known as April Fish, “Poisson d’Avril” [PWAH-Sone DAH-Vril]. The literal translation of April fools is “dupe d’avril,” but if you said that to someone in France, they would stare blankly at you and have no clue what you were talking ab In France, April Fool’s Day is simply known as the ‘1er avril’ but it is a day when people, mostly children, try to hook paper fish on the back of unwary victims which will then walk around with a paper fish on their backs without their knowledge. Like in the UK, it is a day for pranks and jokes. When a prank is discovered, the prankster shouts out ‘poisson d’avril!’.
