CAMARO FACTS

After an 18-hour assembly per car, a new Camaro rolls off the assembly line almost every minute! Go behind the scenes with us and discover what really goes into designing a 2010 Camaro.

There are 734 robots doing the nearly 5,000 spot welds needed to create the body shell for each Camaro Coupe.

The Camaro’s outer body side panel is transformed through the strikes by four die sets, with the initial forming press generating nearly 1,400 tons of force at a speed of seven body sides per minute.

The Oshawa Car Paint Shop is a new, 1.3-million-square-foot facility.

This new paint shop was built in 2007 and is capable of delivering 150 painted vehicles per hour.

In order to get to the paint shop the Camaro body has to be transported on a bridge over a city street where it is painted and then shipped back across the bridge to the trim area for final detailing.

After eight hours in the body shop and five more hours in the paint shop, the Camaro body shell makes its way across a two-level bridge to the general assembly area.

It takes approximately 18 hours to build a Camaro.

One Camaro rolls off the assembly line approximately every minute.

This new paint shop was built in 2007 and is capable of delivering 150 painted vehicles per hour.

The Oshawa GM plant also produces the Impala in the same factory facility. The total plant size is 8.57 million square feet.

It took a $740-million-dollar investment to convert the Oshawa Car plant into a state of the art flexible manufacturing facility, producing the Chevrolet Camaro as its first product.

The Oshawa GM plant first opened in 1953.

Currently there are 3,743 employees in the plant (3,415 hourly pay and 328 salary.)

The Camaro engine is produced at a different plant and has to be shipped approximately 2 hours to the assembly line where it finally meets the Camaro.

It takes 8 months after ordering to receive a brand new 2010 Camaro.

All of the 2010 Camaros produced today have owners.

When this was first mentioned here a couple of weeks ago, I set the Tivo for a "season pass". So far I've seen the Lamborghini, Corvette Z06 and Rolls Royce ones. All very interesting!

Perhaps some good samaritan will copy it to you tube. I just googled "Nat Geo Factories" and saw that the Ferarri episode is there in multiple parts. Don't despair "prima" Donna, don't despair!
