Four-Links – Ford St. Paul, Oskar Schindler, Delica camper, Porsche drawings

Published in

Some old Ford factories get preserved. Others get torn down in anticipation of ambitious redevelopment projects. Though, as we see from an article in The Atlantic‘s CityLab this week about the fate of the St. Paul, Minnesota, plant, those transformations don’t come easy.

* Oskar Schindler may be remembered today for his efforts to spare the lives of more than a thousand Jews during World War II, but as a recent article on the Vintagent shows, he was also a serious gearhead who raced motorcycles before the war.

* Perhaps a Mitsubishi Delica might not be the most spacious choice for a campervan conversion, but it seems to suit Phil and Jen Doyle just fine.

* FlatSixes recently highlighted the storage facility where Porsche keeps some of its most treasured engineering drawings — documents so cherished the company hasn’t handed them over to the Porsche Museum.
