I can't remember if this has been posted here or not, but it was a very interesting video tour to watch to me.

Back when cars were American made by proud American workers who made a good product. Thanks for sharing. Very cool. Roger.

Thanks for posting this Brian. I watched the first 12 minutes and will finish it tomorrow. The scale of that operation was certainly impressive. 80,000 workers!!

It amazed me that Henry even had his own Iron Ore ships so he didn't have scheduling problems by running out of ore for his foundry and steel mill.

Yep that was very interesting. Just blows me away thinking of how many lives passed through that facility.

Thanks for posting.
