In the 1960s, under Chairman Mao Zedong’s grand goal of “building a second automobile factory”, the mountains in Shiyan, which had been silent for thousands of years, were awakened by a great era and a great cause. In 1966, the Second Automobile Factory was established in Shiyan, which started the construction of another national automobile industry base in China. Shiyan, a remote and ancient town, was also built and prospered because of cars, and developed into a modern automobile. city. The automobile industry culture is the gene and soul of Shiyan, an indispensable cultural memory and a symbol of the city’s spirit.
