OSHA did not start until 1970, so it took a while to get up and running

The aisle ways of the plant are a buzz of activity, with those forklifts zipping around like bees. It's a wonder there weren't more collisions between forklifts and pedestrians or other forklifts. I, for one, am always especially vigilant.

Also - each rack contains the same type of engine, right down to the part number/broadcast code (one rack for "TAB", a different rack for "TAC", etc). Mixing stock within a rack is a big no-no, because if you are not paying attention it could allow a wrong engine to be placed on the line.

I loved those Monte Carlos. I had 21 of them back in the early 70s. Seven were black. I had Dick Lang's (Lang's Chevy in Xenia OH)70 SS 454. I should have held onto that one.

I have asked for that information. He thinks he has it in a file and believes it came from a dealer in North or South Carolina. One never knows......

Ok, I ask because I knew of an identical car that the produce manager of a National foods had bought one brand new here near me in '71
