Detroit Auto Show, uses GM's "E-Flex" architecture, running on electricity
and an alternative power source.

increasingly common scam involves the sale of "cheap" auto insurance to
unsuspecting consumers. Scam artists are drawing in unsuspecting consumers
by advertising auto insurance at rock bottom prices.

First Corvettes Being Built - 1953
Rare home movies chronicle the first Corvettes going into production. Each
one is built by hand at the GM factory in Flint, Michigan. Only 300
Corvettes were built that first year. All 1953 Corvettes were white with a
red interior, all had Powerglide automatic transmissions mated to 150 HP,
six cylinder engines with three carburetors and dual Exhaust. Of those 300, 255 survived.
Fisher Body Builds for GM
By the 1950s the company started by the Fisher Brothers to provide custom
bodies for rich people had become the pillar of General Motors
manufacturing empire. Every division relied on Fisher body to deliver the
sheet metal it would sell. Eventually, the Fisher division was done away
with when it was considered to be too ungainly but in the 50s it was the
king of auto manufacturing.
Master Hands (1936) Chevrolet Manufacturing
Classic "capitalist realist" drama showing the manufacture of Chevrolets
from foundry to finished vehicles. Though ostensibly a tribute to the
"master hands" of the assembly line workers, it seems more of a paean to
the designers of this impressive mass production system. Filmed in Flint,
Michigan, just months before the United Auto Workers won union recognition
with their famous sitdown strikes.
Selected for the 1999 National Film Registry of "artistically, culturally,
and socially significant" films.
