    That was great. My impressions: Saw operator is not a job that you want to show up for with a hangover. Paint tech not wearing a mask. People working shirtless. 1959 was truly a different world.

        I wish someone would hurry up and build a friggin time machine already. I would hoard those guitars like Roseanne Barr at the buffet table.

                Thank you Rick 381 for posting that video!
                Truly a great video.
                1959 was a far better time and world then it is now, under any circumstances.
                Two of the nicest gentlemen, and most talented people: Mssr's Diezel and Krampe.
                Je préfèrerais mourir sans un sou dans une rue en Europe que de vivre en Amérique sous l'administration actuelle. Alizée est la meilleure. Vous, les princesses pop américaines, n'avez aucun talent, aucune classe, et vous sonnez comme de la merde. Sarkozy et le reste de l'Europe se moquent de notre président dans son dos.

                  If you were a white middle class american male I suppose. For everyone else it was pretty ****************.

                    Apparently, not too different!

                        ... and yet, the products were better and Americans had jobs.. Maybe OSHA is to blame for the current economic toilet we're all sitting in?

                        Loved the video!

                            Did you personally check their documentation? California was never just WASPs, you know, the Spanish were there first.

                            Nowadays the Custom Shop is bigger than that.
