    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.

                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.

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

                        ... 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.
