tmiles, interesting concept, if I get your drift. I'm trying to think of some you don't have (and I love the Leicas). Maybe from an earlier era, Speed Graphic/Graflex cameras (my Grandfather was a press photog way back and I have one of each from him).

One I'd tend to disagree with is Microsoft Operating System. Was it the standard? Yes! Was it the best? Never!

How 'bout Macintosh stereo amps, especially the old tube jobs?

I thought about it, but figured that I would leave room for discussion. A friend who knows, swears by the Macintosh amps. My ears are not good enough to tell the difference, but his are. He can talk all day about them. As far as the Microsoft O/S goes, you may be right. I should have left it out for the same reason that I skipped the DC3/C47/R4D/C117. The DC3 was popular, only because it was built in such numbers. The DC5 was a far better plane in almost every way, but when a war production decision had to be made, the DC5 was in limited, low volume production. The DC3 was a mature design, in full production, that was quickly ramped up to massive production. Like the MS OS, the DC3 became the standard, because it was by far the most used. Complicated, but FUN

Understood. And most of the old commercial pilots I've known would like nothing more than to get their hands on a DC3.

I like the suggestion of the MG TC. I'm not entirely sure it was America's introduction to sports cars, but it was one of the first popular roadsters. In the days after the War, at various times my folks had a Riley (which was run over by a milk truck) a TC, a TD, and a couple of Jags. (My Dad wasn't rich, he was just really good at buying and selling. ) I'm thinking that given that the TC was sold only in limited numbers in the U.S. and only in right-hand drive maybe the TD is more of the "standard" that is remembered?

I looked up this old post to add the P&W Canada PT6 turbo prop jet engine series. I saw on TV that it as important as ever, so many years after it's introduction. The newest version with single crystal blades ups the game for another 10 years.
 
Looking over the old thread makes me nostalgic for all of the missing members who posted.
 
I don't know why I didn't reply to Asphal'ts posting. I agree, the TD is a beautiful car, and it was priced for normal people.

I was so struck the first time I saw one I can close my eyes and see it still.  It's design was so 'futuristic' for 1961 it may as well have been a flying saucer piloted by E.T.
 
It was the brownish-gold color and I saw it while coming out of Bard's ice cream parlor on the corner of E. Beau and S. Wade in Washington, PA.  As a ninth grader I vowed to own one someday, but when that day came I had grown to where such vehicles lacked sufficient headroom for me to drive either safely or comfortably.

When, in fact, it was probably parked there due to a failure of the Lucas electrical system.
