    We thank “Joe K” for his recent visit to the Plant, specifically his drive around the back side of the facility (which is accessible/allowed). It is always nice to see more customer cars that have been finished.

    Any idea how the quality hold/check works on these initial cars? It appears they are all covered in shrink wrap for shipping?

            I am even more excited when I can see actual cars in their lot there. That's FANTASTIC!

            Being the pessimist that I am, I'm not holding out a lot of hope for that 'second' shift going into action as if someone just 'pressed a button'. There are just sooo many moving pieces. The first being the BIG issue of workers from the plants that GM announced were closing, actually moving to the Bowling Green area. Then there's the issue of new hires and training of everybody. Couple that with integrating them into the workforce there and then getting a whole cohesive team together to deliver the product quality that's expected. That's a really BIG DEAL! (Almost frightening when you think of the complexity of the product coming down the line.)

            Like all of you, I sure hope the line start up is smooth and flawless and the QC serves to validate all of managements efforts. In the mean time, I'm counting down the days until I get that call from Shane at the Museum. Then we'll deal with the most important QC..... the road trip back home to Texas, hopefully with the top down!

              Has anyone counted those yet ? 😂 My eyes aren’t what they used to be. I’ve read 444 in 4 days. Where are the trucks ? Oh forgot these are on Q hold I’m assuming. Any thoughts on the Q hold subject ? Like how many cars might be included ? How long might it take ? Will late February or March production avoid the hold ?

                  As you probably know, the production line is full of C8s in various states of completion, when 2nd shift starts. The line does stop for the shift change, just to make sure all stations are staffed as well as turnover between both shifts, shift manager turnovers and any necessary pre-production meetings. The second shift are not all new staff, some first shift staff have "migrated" to second shift, some temporarily. The second shift will certainly start off at a careful pace, and conduct similar daily status reviews on quality and production specification reviews and decide daily on production line pace. Certainly both shifts will produce the same high quality cars, and within a week or two, both shifts should be producing at a similar pace.

                      Does it a bit odd that if there were a quality issue and the had to do work on the cars, the cover might need to come off.

                      Hopefully, that means they don’t anticipate any issues!!!

                        Ralph, They can be removed quite easily and put back on. I'm sure they don't want the cars to deteriorate while they sit there for however long they need to. Hopefully they aren't there all that long.

                            That was a slightly misleading sentence. There weren't 444 produced in 4 days. There were 444 scheduled to be built and the current stats for those cars were given in that thread.
                            The picture I posted from Friday seems to be easier to guess the numbers. I guessed about 400, but that might also include some CTF vehicles as well.

                              This is how they did it last generation, and as capevettes noted they do that to protect them for can you imagine that if was even 1/8” of an inch of snow, with some C8 customers knowing their care is completed, “what do you mean you are storing mine outside in the snow unprotected?”

                              Hopefully as this QCH progresses, all or almost all that are sitting there now, wrapped and protected, have as their very next step having their door zipper opened so the transporter driver could get into it, then load that next car on the transporter on its way to its next or final delivery point.
