Though Honda was still in its infancy in 1967, it was already conducting some of the world’s most precise engineering. A video tour of the company’s Wako R&D facility and various plants is a fascinating glimpse into Honda’s operations at the time. Engineers in crisp, white labcoats perform countless tests, automated tools churn out part after part, and quality control technicians run then-new S800s on the “Test-O-Matic.”
Cars, motorcycles, and generators come to life in what were then brand new factories, the definition of modern and clean. The 30-minute visit is like a trip back in time, and though it’s still decades before Honda’s glory days, you can see how they were well on their way.
