    On the other hand, in a new car you now survive a 50mph crash whereas back then you wouldn't survive a 25mph one

      Anybody know which Chevy plant? If it was Flint, I probably met a few of the old buggers that were just young guys in the video.

      I've been in the buildings that were "Chevy in the Hole" in Flint, beginning to be disused at that time, now vacant fields.

          At the risk of linking to a video posted 19 times previously , here is one from the Ford assembly line from about 100 years ago.

            Having worked in Health and Safety, I'm always amazed at how much things have changed. Its hard to look at these kinds of videos and pictures without thinking how many dead or maimed workers these machines left in their wake. About the only safety devices I noticed were the double activation switches for the stamping presses that required both workers to hold two buttons to activate the press.

            I was pretty impressed with the level of automation for that era though.

                  Interesting to see that some of the joints were rivited instead of spot welded.

                      Did anyone notice how fit and trim those men were?

                        Kind of neat that the big presses at around 9:30 looked like all of the operators had to press a start button with each hand before it was activated.

                          Thought they were fit and trim because they are working their asses off.

                            It's not so much Fast Food as Engineered Foods... if you eat stuff that was injected or mutated to grow or gain size fast. Don't be shocked when the same happens to you. Back in the Day they had nothing but wholesome foods... and it shows.
                            Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.
