Plant Production Schedule

What is the normal production schedule at the Oshawa plant? Do they run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except for maintenance shutdowns?

Also, how much of this time is being devoted to the ZL1?

Mike--could you possibly enlighten us on this?

I believe they are running two shifts, six days a week ... And I think the Z will be blended in with the rest of the builds.

If the plant is closed for the next to weeks, does that mean no orders will be picked up in those 2 weeks??

Maybe the plant is not closed per se, but going thru a re-tooling to accommodate ....... something special

(and, no, I doubt it has anything to do with an LS9)

The plant is closed for the week of the 6th and then again on the week of the 27th. I don't know about the orders being picked up.

Hey Dave you think we will move on the 13th? And maybe be built the following week? My dealer said it will be built the last week of this month before the closing so we will see
