Rooftop Racetrack: 1928 via Retronaut
“The Lingotto building, Turin, Italy, once housed a Fiat factory. Built between 1916 and 1923, the design had five floors, raw materials going in at the ground floor, and cars built on a line that went up through the building. Finished cars emerged at rooftop level, where there was a rooftop test track. It was the largest car factory in the world at the time. Le Corbusier called it “one of the most impressive sights in industry”, and “a guideline for town planning”.”
Cat’s out of the bag. My 1928 BMW-powered V8 Ford Model A unveiled at #BimmerFest today. A year in the making - Expect a full photo shoot soon. And a special thanks to @byzaw for helping me get it done.
To have the skills to build something like this from the ground up is amazing.
