2013 article
Totalcar Magazine - Used Cars - The first, the last


Quote:
Aerodynamics was the keyword when developing the new family car. The engineers and designers worked hard to make the car more fuel efficient, better to drive and more cost-effective to produce. To achieve all this, Ford people in Cologne spent over 2.8 billion Deutsche Marks (approximately the same amount in dollars today) for the development of the Sierra. Searching for the most aerodynamic shape, Heinz Ostendorf and his team spent more than 75 days in the wind tunnel testing all the design ideas. People were working hard in the Daimler-Benz Windkanal in Stuttgart, as they were guests in the facility, and only the costs of renting it amounted to 1.2 million Deutsche Marks. Every idle minute spent there was like throwing money in the huge fans of the wind generator.

It gets even more random. There are old Ford farm tractors, a Ferrari, Peugeots, Cadillacs and Lincolns, but mostly muscle cars. Almost 100% of it restored, when necessary, on site. They even do old school buses. There are multiple rotisseries for car bodies, a big paint shop, and a crew of guys working full time.

But, it's also a farm. Their work is first rate.

Random TRANSPORTATION pictures

Just watched this guy spend a few minutes attempting negotiation the very tight 90 degree bend in the local In-n-Out drive-through. Guess he didn't want to walk inside.

Man, people make me laugh
