The answer to the riddle is here on this Golden Gate Bridge website: LINK.  It says: 
 

"1993-1994

By 1992, after 55 years of constant weather exposure, approximately 6,557 lineal feet of west side pedestrian railing had deteriorated. The District replaced the railing with an exact replica, preserving the historical and architectural character of the Bridge, at a cost of $1.3 million."

 
The pitting is from decades of rust, the color is "International Orange" (not red, not gold).  Having this steel in my house is close to my heart after crossing that bridge over a thousand times.  And, heading out on a few dozen fishing trips under it for salmon and tuna runs.
 
The furniture came about when a designer named Richard Bulan, was able to purchase the removed railing from the contractor who ended up with it, saving it from being recycled into new steel.  He started a designer furniture company called Golden Gate Furniture. Website link HERE.  Worth a fun look if you like big engineered things like the GGB. 
 
My kids were born in Marin (Mill Valley, CA) and Susan and I would spend weekends with our kids as toddlers walking across that bridge, and enjoying the GG Recreation area.  When the Golden Gate Bridge Furniture company started making these pieces, and I had a decent high tech job, I thought these would be cool to have, so I picked up three of the pieces they made.  Including this breakfast table under the Panasonic cassette changer in the youtube video.  When they started out, prices were a LOT lower.

Drifting

Drifting is a motorsport in which drivers deliberately oversteer their cars, sending them sideways through a series of turns. A car is said to be "drifting" when its front wheels are pointing in the direction opposite a given turn, creating an angle between the direction of travel and the direction the wheels are facing. Modern drifting began over 30 years ago as a racing technique popular in Japan. It has since evolved into a competitive sport in which drivers are judged based on what criteria?

Ross and Norris McWhirter (1925)

In 1954, a few years after identical twins Norris and Ross McWhirter founded a London fact-finding agency, they met a director of the Guinness brewing company, Sir Hugh Beaver, who commissioned a compilation of world records that was intended to settle bar-room disputes. The first edition of the McWhirters' Guinness Book of Records was given to bars for free as a marketing gimmick, but the book quickly became a phenomenal success. In 1975, Ross was assassinated. Why?

On 27 November 1975, exact time indetermined - McWhirter was killed by two IRA volunteers, Harry Duggan and Hugh Doherty, both of whom were members of what became known as the Balcombe Street Gang,[8] the group for whose capture McWhirter had offered the reward. He was shot at close range in the head and chest outside his home in Village Road, Bush Hill ParkEnfield, Middlesex. The weapon used was a .357 Magnum revolver.[9] He was taken to Chase Farm Hospital, but died soon after being admitted. His killers were captured and charged with his and nine other murders.[8] They were sentenced to life imprisonment but freed in 1999 under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakersare used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Miles Davis's Kind of Blue Is Released (1959)

Recorded in just two sessions in the spring of 1959, Miles Davis's Kind of Blue is widely considered to be one of the most important jazz albums ever produced. Davis assembled a group of talented musicians—including saxophonist John Coltrane and pianist Bill Evans—and gave them minimal instructions before recording. Possibly the best-selling jazz album of all time, Kind of Blue is notable for having left out something considered to be the backbone of earlier jazz composition—what?

Leonard Bernstein Conducts His Final Concert (1990)

Less than two months before he died, Bernstein, a highly regarded American composer and conductor, conducted what would be his final concert. He had suffered from smoking-related lung problems for years, and his coughing fit partway through the Boston Symphony appearance that night nearly ended the performance. With his health declining, he officially retired in early October, and he died just five days later. What feat in 1943 made him an overnight sensation and set his career in motion?

He made his conducting debut on short notice when he stood in for guest conductor Bruno Walter who had come down with the flu..
