Last Call: Making Memories Edition

The assembly line of Porsche 911's at the Stuttgart factory, ca. 1970
What better way to get into the groove of the new year than a look at a cool photo from years past? Here’s Porsche’s Stuttgart factory in 1970 where 911s and 912s were coming together. I’m sure the factory today looks very different, however thankfully the present 911s don’t look too terribly different.

    I love all the bold colors we used to get on cars, like the ones here – red, yellow, blue.

        Some do still offer a couple of colours, but who buys them? A shame for us used car folks.

            Plaid belongs on flannel shirts and ugly golf pants, not on car seats.

            Plaid is a big step upon the highway to true vehicular hell.

    A technical meta issue with Disqus, I guess: Does anyone else here have trouble seeing new comments? Sometimes, when I click on a page that, say, has 15 comments, I only see the 5 comments that were there the last time I visited. A refresh will fix it, but I don’t always remember that and might think there’s nothing new.
    What troubles me is that I use fully updated browsers, Firefox at home and work, Opera on my phone. The issue persists over the entirety of platforms and browsers, so my expectation is that it’s a Disqus thing.

      Using Chome on Windows 10. The # of comments listed right under a post’s title rarely reflects how many comments are actually visible, regardless of refreshing.
      Edit to add: That number also rarely correlates to the # of comments listed immediately before the comment section. Wheeeee!

      Probably results in a better experience than driving one.

      If the question had been “What would you use as a boat anchor?” then the answer would have made sense.

    Unfortunately, the photo is not shown due to time, but this is not scary. Usually old things are thrown away, but they can also be recycled. I wonder if the same is possible with photographs?

    Technically, this discussion about the last moment makes me feel deja vu. Do you happen to have a similar feeling? Unfortunately, in my life, there were really the last conversations with a person that I regret. What a pity that it is impossible to turn back time and bring a person back to life. Take care of yourself!
