OK I'll bite.
I heard that rumour back in 94 when I was looking to transfer from the dying Trenton plant. A buddy who had transfered to Saturn told me they were going to start building Corvettes in Spring Hill the next year.
Now in that vein (Moving production from BG to Spring Hill) I could see them moving the Caddy to free up space for the Blue Devil production. I can't see Gm moving from the BG location to Spring Hill its not that much newer facility.
"its not that much newer facility"
But it's much larger and it is curently being completly gutted of all tooling for the new product to be built in Spring Hill. I've been told that there will be an additional "future" product to be produced in Spring Hill also.
BTW: it's not Saturn. It hasn't been a Saturn plant for about 2 years now. It's Spring Hill Assembly.
I saw somewhere that when the UAW vote did not go his way on a 4 10 hour day work week a PO'ed Will Cokesely told the employees that the C7 will be built in Spring Hill. The sticking point was that a 5th day could be mandatory instead of voluntary like it is now.
I can remember back in the 90's when GM pushed the UAW & workers to work 4-10's so i guess GM brought it on them selfs. As for the move to Spring hill they all have the right to work where the product is built just like when everyone moved from St Louis to BG.
If Corvette production is to be moved, why not move it to Oshawa and build it along side the new Camaro?
I haven't really looked into the new Camaro but I expect that the new Z28 will share Corvette engines as in the past. Is there more shared Corvette technology in the new Camaro?
Admittedly, it would be a bit odd to build America's sports car in Canada.
