Interesting vid: LFA supercar assembly line closes down

From 3/19/13 - Lexus shut down their LFA assembly line in Dec. of '12. This 5+ min. video recognizes the people and the work they did there. Very Ferrari-esque (but more white, less red) with few/no robots on the floor. The test-driving seems almost sedate. Japanese audio, usually-clear English subtitles. Stylistically, a counterpoint to the voluptuous products of the Italian mind.

Check out what I assume is a carbon fibre tube weaver at 2:30.

The modernist tunnel at 5:00 reminds me.. anyone traveling in/out of SF should include Montara's northern section of Hwy1 to experience the recently opened Devil's Slide bypass tunnel on Hwy1 - it's a treat. Our tax dollars occasionally build cool infrastructure - utilize it!
