Factory #40/bldg 16

This was my department in factory #40 in 1972 and then again in 1982. This view is facing (north) on the first floor of factory #40 at the north end. The view below would be the same spot as this photo after the creation of Buick City.

This view showing the drive train A.G.V.’s (automated guided vehicle) is facing (north) at the north-end first floor. The worker lowering the drive-train into place is Steven Davis. The light in the distance is from one of the truck dock doors. In 1972 this area was used for the engine line and coil spring and rear axle storage, the rail dock would have been off to the right but was filled in for Buick City. My department in 72-73 was at the left beyond the pillars. The racks extending over the yellow line at the right midway north was not correct but we did not have much space for storing parts. These racks contained the rotor Assembly’s. I always hated working in this area. It was like playing a game. “Seeing if you could get in and out with parts before an A.G.V. would hit you”.
