The Chevrolet Motor Company Presents

Master Hands


"Now for you IPOD "

Complete in 4 Parts for you IPOD

Today twenty five million people are driving motor cars on the streets and highways of America. To provide this transportation over 5,060,000 skilled workers are occupied. The twenty five million drivers and their families who depend on these workers for personal transportation have little opportunity to see at work the skilled craftsmen whose master hands command the great machinery of production.

But day after day this great drama goes on in the foundries and the factories and the assembly plants in which these cars are made. From the Master Hands of the toolmakers, to the hands that master the great machines. From the tools, and patterns, and dies. And then the factories start.
