Ford's River Rouge Plant

It's not 460 related but it is Ford and very cool. It shows what American might once was with FE's and Fairlanes to boot!

Very cool. Is that Bud Lindemann narrating? He sure was busy back then.

I was just talking to a neighbor yesterday about how everyone worked for the auto manufacturers in the 70's and 80's when I lived there, and now it's all gone. Well, not all, but so much of the manufacturing has gone away. The Wixom plant was demolished a few years ago. Freak'n NAFTA was the beginning of the end.

It kinda sounded like Rod Sterling to me but I could be mistaken.

Has'nt the River Rogue plant been converted into a "Mega" Islamic mosque yet?

Here's an earlier version of basically the same video done in the 30's so instead of FE's it's flatheads!!!

Very interesting videos. I'm sending links to friends that worked in the Ford factories and to other Ford fans. Thanks for posting.
