Personally, I don't think anyone at the Oshawa plant owes me anything. The way I look at it.... I'm lucky to have a great job that enables me to buy a car made by people that appreciate their job as much as I do mine. Let's face it, we are connected. Not just because of our new Camaros. It's because no matter what kind of job we have there is someone that depends upon us to do it with pride and passion. And in turn we depend upon others to do theirs.

Appreciation and heartfelt thanks to the folks at Oshawa, you rock!

Sounds like fun, but since I'm stuck in 1100 hell doesn't look like I'll have my car by then either. Of course if you guys could pull some strings and get her built and ready for delivery I'd be happy to fly up, join in the celebration and drive her home over the week-end. Deal? :-)

That's quite nice of you Hylton to arrange something like this. Maybe I'll have my Camaro by then, and take my first road trip to Canada.

It's been a long time for me to see the inside of an auto factory, but years ago they used to have the openhouses for Oldsmobile here.

I would love to go but I don't have a passport! As a family we travel the US in our motorhome and we have been to many state and national parks, so we never had the need for a passport. I doubt I could get one that quick. I would love to write a letter and send a donation!

I totally agree, and super60 has gotten numerous alcolades, from me via PM's, about what he's doing and the ENTIRE CAMARO TEAM!

I'm more than likely going to attend, once I confirm my schedule at work.

Hylton,
Great idea! I'm sure it takes a great deal to put something together like this. I would love to attend but it would be helpful to firm up a date in order to make plans. Do you have an idea when you may be able to publish a firm date?? Thanks!!

There are no plans to visit the assembly plant and it is generally off limits to the public.

You are in Chicago. That is one of the cities that does passport processing. I think if anyone could do it that quick, you could do it.

I might be able to- just gotta wait to see if another friend of mine can go or not; as you know, multiple adult seating in the Camaro is slightly lacking... He won't know until Friday afternoon if he can get off work. I have to drive by Toronto to get to Oshawa anyways, so if my passenger seat is open, you're welcome to it. Mapquest and Google both route me north of the city- staying on the 401E. Where exactly are you. PM me the info.

My kids got theirs earlier this year, non-expedited in about 5 weeks. I would GUESS if you pay the expedite fee, probably 2-3 weeks.
