On Saturday afternoon I met up with an old college buddy. We had an emotional conversation about a big hurdle he had overcome in his life. It left a big impact on me and I even woke up at 4 o'clock in the morning on Sunday to write this essay about it for you. His story will have a deep impact on your life, too. Enjoy.Craig Ballantyne “Our mortal nature makes us desire nothing so much as what we have lost.” – Seneca

Perception: Something to Think About
In Washington, DC, at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about three minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule.

We are about to visit the shop where they make executive class cars, and we are going to do it illegally. It’s one of the shops of the factory named after I. A. Likhachev. In some areas it looks abandoned nevertheless it still works and remains under guard.

This shop was built in the 30s, probably during the second reconstruction of the factory. There was time when even authorities were not allowed to enter the shop freely. They were required to have a special pass from KGB.
The first executive class car made by the factory was ZIS-101 ( 1936 – 1941 Ð³.). In general they produced 8752 cars.
The next attempt to make a car for the Soviet authorities was made in the times of the war. It was an executive class ZIL.
Stalin liked cars of “Packard” so it became the basis for the new car. It pretty much resembled Packard 180, the main changes were inside the car (bigger distance between cylinders, for example, that improved engine cooling). From 1945 to 1958 they made 2072 ZIS-110 cars.

They applied typical Soviet methods of production.
When they still were making limousins 800 people worked in the shop. Today their amount is tive times less.
Body panels are made with help of special oak moulds on which metal sheets are tapped, planished and evened. Manually.
It’s a hard work for professionals.
