Buick City Training Program.

This shows my one time committee man Harold Blakley as the union rep. and Wayne Elowsky as the Buick City rep. Harold played drums in a long time country band from the Flint area. I once bought his Public address system that he used to mic. his drums for all those years. I just recently sold it to my son in-law. Wayne was one of my first supervisors when I joined the materials group in 1975. He is mentioned elsewhere in this blog. This training took place in several Flint area schools and Buick City over the summer of 1985.

I posted a story on this same thing being done at Buick’s paint shop factory #11 located on the third floor of factory #04. I love coincidence because I just got this article out of Hemmings Muscle Machines May 2014 issue and am posting it exactly six years later to the day.  Link: for the original story from April 2, 2008 at lower left. Open images in a new tab and enlarge for reading.
