Building a Corvette

Core77 points us to an interesting video showing the American men and women building components for the Corvette—specifically the leather trim and seats. It starts out with a little history on the beauty that was a late '50s, early '60s vette and then goes into today's complicated upholstery jobs, combining machines and actual human beings with sewing machines. "I found the bit about how they map out flaws in the hides, then cut around them, interesting," they write. "And these guys even make their own foam."
