Thankfully we're reading a post about changes and not closure. :patriot:
I agree with you Madam. Ford has been doing the 10 hour four day week. Hopefully they will keep heading in the change direction and get their company back.:patriot:

Yes, I'm glad to hear that they will still be working.
The on again off again schedule will make it tough for people to tour the plant during their visit to BG or if they are doing the museum delivery of their new car.

A four day schedule was discussed for many years at the plant. I am assuming that the union and membership finally agreed to do it.

We are touring the plant in September. I received notice that the morning tour will be changed from 0900 to 0830 and had to reconfirm. I am glad that they are still giving tours as this will be our first trip to Bowling Green and I am really looking forward to taking the tour and visiting the museum.

The tour is great and you will like the Museum as well; a very nice addition just opened this year. Too bad you won't be able to see XLR's being made anymore--last one rolled off the line April 30th. :ugh::ugh:

Enjoy your trip!!

I have been through this plant three times and every time its more exciting and interesting. While your there pick out your corvette and when you return home order it its a life changing event and a legenary, beauitful, fantastic fun car.:blinzel:
