    Check out this Bugatti T43, chassis 43264, that Twin 6 has posted on The Old Motor. It is one of the three T43&#8242;s Leon Duray received in exchange for the Packard Cable Specials (the two front-wheel drive Millers which were rescued by Griff Borgeson in the late 1950&#8242;s). 43264 was originally bodied as a Weymann cabriolet and received this one-off two seat aluminum coupe designed and built by the Derham Body Company of Rosemont, PA, reputedly for owner, John Fritsche, Jr.

    It is obvious that the fenders and headlights are FORD. They look to be 1938 - 39 Ford parts. Can you give us a positive ID of what they came on originally. More details here.

    [FONT=Comic Sans MS, sans-serif]Hey,"Mister Wizard"! :eek: What's new???[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] [​IMG]

    Bozo the Clown and Buffalo Bob, eat your hearts out! How many HAMBers remember this guy? In the Age of Television, Mister Wizard was the original science nerd! Conceived and produced in Chicago, "[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Watch Mr. Wizard" was broadcast live in its primary markets, and shown by Kinescope in the markets that soon signed on after the 1951 premier. In restrospect, it seems amazing to me that the program's original run lasted until early 1965!


    The host and resident science "wizard" was one Don Herbert, a decorated World War II B-24 bomber pilot and erstwhile purveyor of a fresh idea that lent itself to the relatively new broadcast medium: SCIENCE CAN BE BOTH EDUCATIONAL AND ENTERTAINING FOR KIDS! Don kept things basic, so that even younger children would gain a valuable, lasting love of science. He esposed "the science of ordinary things," and he designed his on-air "experiments" so that they could be safely replicated at home with household items.

    WAY before "Nova," "Discovery Channel," "Bill Nye, the Science Guy," and even "Beakman's World," there was the grandaddy: "Watch Mister Wizard"! A virtually instant hit, the program spawned some 5,000 Mr. Wizard Science Clubs by 1956 with more than a hundred thousand kids signing up. At its peak, the show enjoyed a viewing audience in the millions (FOR A KIDS' SCIENCE SHOW?!?). In Don's obituary, Bill Nye wrote, "Herbert's techniques and performances helped create the United States' first generation of homegrown rocket scientists just in time to respond to Sputnik. He sent us to the moon. He changed the world."
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    Today's experts in early childhood education contend that a child's brian, figuratively speaking, is like an informational sponge, ready to soak up worthwhile input -- even science. Minnesotan Donald Herbert Kemske (aka Don Herbert) sensed that all that was needed was to make the subject ENTERTAINING! Herbert used basic experiments and employed child-actor "assistants" to teach essential scientific principles. The program won numerous accolades nationally, including the Peabody Award and citations from groups such as the American Chemical Society, to name but two.

    Born in 1917, Don passed away in 2007 of bone cancer, just shy of 90 years of age. I find it ironic, though, just how many successful people after WWII had bravely served their country -- and defended world freedom -- in the military. Entering the U.S. Army as a private, Herbert soon joined the Army Air Force and, in short, became a B-24 bomber pilot with the 767th Bomb Group, 15th Air Force, flying 56 combat missions against Germany, out of Italy. When the war ended in '45, he had attained a captain's rank, earning a Distinguished Flying Cross, as well as the Air Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters.

    I mentioned a certain irony. Well, Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan -- who also made a post-war name in children's educational TV -- was a veteran of the Pacific Island Hopping campaign, seeing rough action. It seems that, somehow, veterans sometimes channel the energy of soldiering toward making the world better for future generations, eh? (Some HAMBer help me here: I seem to recall that Fred "Mister Rogers" was also a war veteran.)
