    OK, just what are they doing here? Looks like they are all using the same device. I'd say applying the pinstripes but I'm a pinstriper and that doesn't look like anything I'm familiar with. Oh, and the gal on the right is wearing heels.

    I have heard that pin striping and wood graining were entry level jobs on the assembly line. Might be some truth to it.

    Re the plugless flattys on the test stands.
    I saw something similar on the A series line at the Austin factory at Longbridge. They would turn the engines over with big electric motors. I'm not sure if they were motored over for a certain time, but I do remember the amps it took to turn them over was part of the process. As long as the amps taken to turn them over dropped to a certain level, it was passed. It was a sort of bedding in process. Not running in, as it wasn't running. When the cars were built, they went on a rolling road and run through the gears and went through another test procedure. They didn't baby them either.

    Nobody recognized this Model A owner?
    It’s a young Pete Chapouris, maybe with his first (?) hot rod. Pete later had a really sweet ‘51 Chevy hardtop mild custom.
