    Just posted today by Jeff Quitney on Youtube: 1938 Ford Automobile Assembly Line, Chicago Torrence Avenue Plant, 1938 Ford Motor Company.

    Also, check out his other videos - he has a bunch of interesting automotive stuff.

  5. At about 4:30 into the video they transfer the body to the storage conveyors. What is it (looks like smoke) that is sprayed into the interior of the car? Rodent repellent? New car smell? :)
    Cool video.

    Noticed this Friday. Just had time to watch it through today, great stuff! Those guys worked very hard, ALL day. Package tray build time, and intense labor per piece was interesting.
