If not for what sounded like someone snoring, I would have watched the whole thing.

I had a friend who got a job there when he came back from Vietnam.  He was either high or drunk everyday.  The stories he told me about that place - wow.  I never bought a car manufactured there. 

Always felt bad for him - never got the help he needed.  God rest his soul.

Yes about Baltimore Plant, Rich is a wealth of information. Has the coolest tools that were hand made in many cases that were used on the assembly line. I spend hours talking to him at each Maryland Chevelle show

After 6 visits to the dealer to fix leaks from the T-Tops on Sandy's 1979 Trans Am, the car was brought into the executive garage.  An inspector from water test pulled out a small probe from his shirt pocket and poked at the T-Top seals.  Sandy didn't think that this would stop the leaks as the dealer had even replaced the T-Tops, but it worked!  Sandy was the admin for the Plant Manager, Andy Anderson, which probably helped getting the problem corrected.
