What I find most interesting about the assembly process is how the chassis is prefab'd sepparate from the body, and then the two are joined together as sepparate but full assemblies near the end.

Indeed, i should get someone in the plant to sneak in some Magnaflow exhaust and kooks headers onto the line, just for mine! I wish!

Holy cow the guys working on the line at gm are old. It looks soo strange to me as they look like my dad working on that line. At the car plant i work at most of the guys on the line are in there 20's. Once u hit your 30's your considered a senior citizen. Cool video btw thank you...

Had that Powerball Ticket came in that Wednesday I would have given Rick a run for that first Cammy and I would have had lots more toys on it too, lol.


Nice Video though Thanks

Excellent video and thank you for sharing. It is nice to visualize some of the steps our cars go through to get built and would love to see more if anyone comes across other videos.
