Beware of Auto Insurance Scams
Everyone loves a good deal, but when it comes to buying auto insurance, the
lowest price may end up costing you more than you bargained for. An
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.
Go Inside the GM Paint Lab to Paint a Corvette, Pt. 1
Painting a car is serious business, especially
when it's an automotive icon. To go inside the paint lab requires stringent

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.
GM Arlington, TX Assembly Plant Tour Feb. 2011
Here is a video of the tour at the GM plant. It really is amazing to see
it all being built. All the employees are very friendly, seem to love their
job, and are very eager to show you their work. It was an awesome, and
very interesting experience!
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.
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.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51! Testing the New High Tech Vette! - Ignition Ep. 77
Finally! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of
Chevrolet's hotly anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, the most
technologically advanced production Corvette ever made. First, Carlos heads
to the test track to put the reborn 460hp V8-powered Stingray through the
full barrage of Motor Trend's instrumented tests: 0-60 mph acceleration,
quarter mile, 60-0 mph braking, lateral acceleration, and figure-eight.
The raw data backs up what Carlos can already feel from the driver's seat -
the 2014 Corvette goes fast, stops quick and handles corners with ease.
Then, its off to the winding roads of Central California to see how the C7
Vette's continuously variable-locking differential, magnetic damping, rev
matching and other high-tech features perform in the real world.

GM Pittsburgh Plant Flex Hood Assembly
I was a tool & die troubleshooter at the GM metal stamping plant in West
Mifflin, PA (near Pittsburgh) before it closed. This is a video of me
getting back from lunch in Mid-November, 2008. I'm getting ready to go down
to the plant floor to continue troubleshooting the FLEX HOOD Line. This
was one of the last runs of the Flex Hood line before the plant closed.
