Ultimate Factories

Anybody see this show? Two episodes are excellent, The BMW Z4 factory and the Corvette ZR-1 factory. How can we get the Camaro plant to be one of these episodes?

Saw the Z06, must have missed the ZR1, but there's also a Ferrari one.

I've seen the Corvette one many times, as well as the other episodes.

However, they are not making new shows currently.

All Corvettes are made at Bowling Green Kentucky.

Yeah but the show showed how the frame was made at a seperate place and shipped and then assembled and everything, it was really interesting.

Yes, Bowling Green, KY.

There's only one episode from the Corvette plant - on the Z06.

Yea I think it's just they had 2 diff shows.

600 people got chopped from the factory but she's back in action. Just at a slower rate and the price is going up.

Every GM enthusiast should head over to Bowling Green at least once in their lifetime. Great experience.
