Chevy & Ford assembly line - 1936
 
I love these type of old clips.

Things have come a damn long way.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Oh, man. Those were great, Grub! Just watching some of that old machinery at work was really cool.

PaulMys 09-13-2013 10:40 PM

Respectfully, on a site such as this, NOBODY but me thinks this is cool?

Grubrunner 09-14-2013 09:00 AM

I think it's cool, Paul.

I'm with ya' bud!

I think they're cool too. However, if I may interject my opinion.

I personally think that the old way contributed to society on a broad scale. Now with all the newer equipment and automated technology, some manufacturers have compromised quality for speed.

I don't claim to be a financial wizard on the aspects of automotive production, but when a city has to destroy 70,000 homes because they're abandoned it makes me think.

Is the cost of retooling, the cost of technologically advanced equipment, and its upkeep really producing a superior product?

It seems counterproductive to automate a factory and lay off the workers, negating their ability and loyalty to a brand, as well as their means of earning enough money to purchase a vehicle they once made.

I say get rid of some of the automation, return hands on employee labor, and increase the workforce. Create jobs and therefore paychecks, and give the average Joe money to spend on a product he has loyalty to, and reinforce the economy.

But that's just my opinion.

I agree with this 100%. However, this would cut into their bottom lines and their shareholders profits. So sadly, this won't happen.
