MERCEDES-BENZ LEAVING USA DIESEL MARKET FOR 2017 !

ALSO GONE...

Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler AG has suspended efforts to certify diesel-powered passenger vehicles for the 2017 model year in America.
Mercedes-Benz has not decided to withdraw diesel engines totally from this country, despite the fact that last year they represented less than 1-percent of the automakerís total sales volume and are expected to only account for ďa small niche within their U.S. lineupĒ going forward.
Mercedes-Benz offered 4 'Bluetec' 2016 Diesel models in the USA, but it appears the chances of seeing any diesel-powered 2017 Mercedes car models here in the U.S. are slim to none.

I'd be surprised that anyone reading this item hasn't owned one of these legendary oil burners at one time or another.
...our was a "300-D"...great car, but Pooh disliked having to wear gloves while fueling up!

The amazing life of the bungee-jump inventor (Alan Weston)
who's now building a massive airship for Google co-founder Sergey Brin

Google founder Sergey Brin is "secretly" building a massive airship in Hangar 2 at the NASA Ames Research Center.
Bloomberg News and others are reporting that Brinís fascination with airships began when he visited Ames
and saw old photos of the giant USS Macon being built by the US Navy in the 1930s as seen above.
The life story of the man behind the project for Brin is also very interesting.
