Corvette has mastered the factory delivery process. A friend of mine took delivery and his car was on a spinning pedestal when he arrived and was at the door to the plant ready to drive off when the tour was complete. It can't be that hard to do. Oh well. I wish is could go to the Friends and Family gathering next Sunday. Too far to go for me.
I think this is a great opportunity for them to get their feet wet with the whole plant-tours concept. I agree, the way my beloved Chevrolet does it down in Bowling Green is phenomenal. But even here, they already host countless tours for other companies and the media. Hell BMW was even in here a couple months ago touring the place! So there's no reason why you guys who keep the lights on shouldn't be allowed to come take a peek into the process.

I do, however, remember a Durango owners gathering a while back when we first launched them. Wasn't many ppl though. But even if only one person showed up and they enjoy it, then it's worth it to me.

I'll start a thread on Monday with more details about this small event though. Maybe Brainstormer and I will slip out the back door and go have some fun in a couple cars!

It'd be great to show somebody how things really work around here, and what's actually goin on with the diesels. Maybe they'll even let ppl snap a few pics. (It'd be hard to stop it.) Anyone interested, pm me..
Is it this Sunday the 6th or next Sunday the 13th? If there is anybody from the msp area interested in chipping in on the gas, I could fly four of us there...

Chevy, is it this Sunday (6th) or next Sunday? I could go this Sunday with V-tail, but I have to work next Sunday (but I might be able to get the day off). Let me know, so I can see what I can do.

Hey! Since the concept originated here...my Hemi Overland is officially getting the Shannon paint job as I write this! Now I can only hope that my diesel gets the same. Imagine how quiet a vehicle will be with paint thicker than the sheet metal

Hey Vtail,

It's a little out of the way, but you can come through Houston and pick me up. lol.

If y'all get a foursome together, let me know, I'll be in Detroit by 5:00pm Saturday. First beer is on me.

Wait wait wait, hold tight.. This is why I said I wanted to make sure.. I wanted to get ahold of the flyer. My supervisor told me it was next Sunday, but I'm pretty sure he got the date wrong.. I'm gonna email this dude on the flyer and verify.

Here's the flyer;



I should have concrete info on Monday. If there's enough interest, I'll text Marlon and see if he wants to throw in a couple of his tix.

I was gonna make a new thread for this, but I figured I'd post it here and give you guys priority bc well, ya know..

Definitely interested if it involves a plant tour, if just a car show, less interested in making the trek....
