Liberty Vintage

Since I posted the blog entry from Grant at FMA below, I figured that I should also post this beautiful short film about vintage mechanic Adam Cramer, with some interesting comments about de-industrialization and the loss of the "can-do" attitude that created this country. It covers a similar theme to Matthew Crawford's recent Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work. I love the scene where you can see him using vacuum gauges to balance the four carbs on a CB750 (or similar). How many people even know how to do that anymore?
