Oshawa (Impala line) slowed down for extra week

"General Motors Corp. is shutting down production for an extra week this spring at its car plant in Oshawa, Ont., and cutting 2,000 jobs at two other factories in the United States as the automaker scrambles to reduce output to respond to slowing demand."

"GM will idle the Oshawa car plant for one week starting Monday March 30, company spokesperson Susan Waun said. The factory builds Chevrolet Impala cars as well as the next-generation Camaro model."

I hope not, but reality is if, money is not being spent in other areas then you wonder what production cycles will be like moving into the 2Q?

One thing I do not like to see are plants idled then see a start stop sequence. That is a forecast of what’s to be. It may not happen at all and it could be extended.

Buyers are still holding onto their money, and not spending. I was in a meeting today with 50+ people and the general consensus is, any stimulus monies receive by these individuals would go to pay bills. In a sense, the bailout is just paying bills and merely a fiscal tourniquet.

Good news I guess but I would rather not see the Impala affected.

GM to Idle Oshawa an extra week...

WTF? Another delay...

General Motors Corp. is shutting down production for an extra week this spring at its car plant in Oshawa, Ont., and cutting 2,000 jobs at two other factories in the United States as the automaker scrambles to reduce output to respond to slowing demand.

GM will idle the Oshawa car plant for one week starting Monday, March 30, company spokesperson Susan Waun said. The factory builds Chevrolet Impala cars as well as the next-generation Camaro model.

Current management has to go. I'm not that busy- I'll go run Oshawa for them for a while...

un-cool as that is, it's better for the company than having around a thousand more cars just sitting on lots not getting sold

I believe Camaro Scotty was saying something along those lines yesterday like Jimmy said above.
