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

This is just about the only non snooze fest clip from one of my "Buick

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.

For enthusiasts who want to be personally involved in creating their
Corvette, Chevrolet's new Corvette Engine Build Experience allows them to
literally build the engine for their new car. In what is believed to be the
first program of its kind, customers who order a 2011 Corvette Z06 or ZR1
can choose to pay an additional $5,800 and hand-assemble their cars' LS7 or
LS9 engines at GM's Performance Build Center (PBC) in Wixom, Mich. In
addition to building their own engines, Corvette buyers can attend driving
school in Arizona or Nevada, take delivery of their vehicles at the
National Corvette Museum or watch their vehicles being built at the
Corvette assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky.
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.
