Well, just about everyone in the assembly of that car is a artisan. Yes the people who assemble that car are artists. Its a craft thats not practiced much anymore. People who do things like that are proud of what they do, they do it because they love it. I hope vanillas success would bring more frame builders out of hiding, or we will all be riding some crap asian frame built in sweatshops.
