There must have been something going on at Norwood during April as far as how many cars were built per day. I just came across a 69 pace car with an 04C build and a VIN of 628591. My pace car is a 04C with a VIN of 636285. That means that at least 7,694 Camaros were built during 04C, the third week of April. Also, I am sure that there are earlier and later VIN's with an 04C which would increase the third week of April's production. With a 5 day work week and two shifts totaling 16 hours per day, based on the VIN's I have, then GM made over 1,540 cars per day for 04C. That's almost 100 cars per hour. If you look at CRG's break down of production figures, they show the first VIN of April as 623588. That means that GM built less than 5,000 cars for the first two weeks of April, 04A and 04B. CRG shows an ending VIN for April of 637106. That means, if you assume my car was the last one built in 04C, which I bet it was not, than GM made at most, only 821 cars for 04D and 04E. April 30th was a Wednesday, so there were 8 weekdays during 04D and 04E, which would mean GM only made about 100 cars per day for the last two weeks of April yet for the third week of April, 04C, they built about 100 cars per hour. Something doesn't make sense.
Is there any mistake with my math or was GM really messed up? Is it possible they could go from building 100 cars per hour in 04C and then drop to about 6 cars per hour the following week?
