  1. Glad someone else immediately thought of River Rouge. Gladder I neither tweet nor spend any time interacting with Muskites.

  2. This must be trolling…it’s like wondering why Amazon would also sell books.

    Looking for photos for a family thing, I stumbled across this one. From my street in East Germany in 1990, a weird mix of cars. Jeep and Trabant in one picture. The black Scirocco was our “family car”.

  3. Besides River Rouge which Tesla worshipers might sneer built simple little cars, Fold also built Willow Run assembly plant during World War II and cranked out B-24 bombers…. eventually reaching the rate of one per hour:

    “Automobiles of the era had 15,000 parts and weighed around 3,000 pounds. Sixty-seven feet long, the B-24 had 450,000 parts and 360,000 rivets in 550 sizes, and it weighed 18 tons.”

    “….[D]uring a 2.5-year production run in a 3.5-million-square-foot factory built over Willow Run Creek near Ypsilanti, MI. The massive plant turned out 8,645 Liberators vs. 9,808 manufactured by four factories of Consolidated, Douglas Aircraft, and North American Aviation”
