A Car Trip Down Memory Lane

Now that the auto industry has been forever altered it might be a good time to hearken back a few years to better times.

Click here for a 3-D video showing how a Chrysler was made back in the day. This is an ad shown at the 1939 World's Fair in New York's Flushing Meadow touting Chrysler's superior workmanship. You can see the video without the glasses but if you have a pair try them on. Unfortunately the correct 3-D glasses are not the common "red-blue" ones but rather the Polaroid version. Luckily I don't part with old things that easily so I found a pair.

And check out the "new" models from the Fair! Don't you wish you owned one of them now?
