I attended a very special event this past weekend, by invitation only, along with Ron Liebert, and a fellow Gateway Camaro club Member Jim Hairston and Bob Routt, another long time friend, and member of this board was in attendance. It was held in Norwood Ohio, on the 6th floor of the old parking garage built by GM back in 1968 for the GM workers. The plant was closed in 1987, and the parking garage is all that is left. The main purpose of this gathering is for the Norwood assembly plant workers reunion. There were over 1500 people in attendance, and 22 Norwood built cars on display, for the retirees to enjoy and reminice over. Phil Borris worked his butt off to put this whole thing together, and I was very honored to be part of it. The reason I posted this thread in this section, is we always talk about what is correct, or what is not, and how certain things were done during the manufacturing process, and sometimes we remark about quality control back in the day. We forget about the HUMAN factor. The folks I talked with were VERY proud of the product they built, and were always consious about quality control. The average job was given 50 seconds to complete, they built roughly 50-55 cars an hour in 1970. Simply stated, they did the very best they could do in the time they had to do it in. I thanked several of the retirees for the fine product that they built for us, and one gentleman stopped me, and then thanked me,saying that he was so happy that there was so much interest in the product he had a hand in building. That some how it was his legacy. There was no juging, just display cars, but it was one of the best events I have ever been to. People make the differance. Thanks Phil!!!
