Car shopping…If only!

One of the things on our bucket list of "things to do" before we leave SA is to tour the Mercedes-Benz plant in East London.  This was also on the bucket list of the Thomas's.  We squeezed in a date before they left for America.  What a treat it was.  Unfortunately, we were not allowed to take pictures in the plant.  All I can say, is if you ever get a chance to tour an automobile plant…just do it.  Technology at it's best.  Robotic arms everywhere.  Sister Thomas said, " I keep imagining what would happen if one of these robots took on a life of it's own.  It would make a great horror movie.  

This particular plant turns out 460 cars per day!

One of the engineers designed this Mercedes and had it hand-beaded!

The First Mercedes!
