OK Here we go.. We have a free event planned at the legacy GM Norwood Parts warehouse on August 9th.

This is a joint micro event planned by the UAW 674 and GM in conjunction with an open house event where you will be able to display your car, tour the GM facility, meet current employees of GM and meet retired Norwood workers.

Cars attending (that I schedule) will get a preferential display area. This is an outdoor event so plan accordingly for the weather.

Some Background: The GM Parts warehouse was located at the Norwood plant until 1965 when it and its employees were relocated to another nearby location along with the Norwood Zone office which then became the Cincinnati Zone office.

If you would like to participate post up and I will get you the info.  Grin

Thanks festival, that sounds like a neat way to spend a day. I will not be able to attend, but I look forward to seeing some cool pics to feel like I was there. Thanks for heading this up.

Phil I had a great time last year talking with the retired workers, many interesting stories, and they seemed to like my partial completed car. I would enjoy coming back if possible. George

I would too enjoy coming.  Not sure if I would bring anything.  But definitely love to come and meet everyone; see and hear the stories.

Planning for the August event is suspended at this time due to the untimely passing of UAW 674 president David Harris. David worked the lines at Norwood as a UAW member and later as a supervisor for GM. After the closure in 1987 David continued working through his retirement ultimately running for and being elected the president of the active UAW 674 while technically still in retirement.

A car hobbyist had no better friend than David.

Always quick with a smile, words of encouragement and ready to help car owners meet the people who built the cars of NORWOOD.
