cyrusapollo said:Hey, 07 Shelby!
Just curious, how many have you got out yet? Arent you guys shutting down soon for a couple weeks? Any major production problems or are they ticking along like clockwork?
07 SHELBY said:We are building approximately 3 per hour or 24 per shift x 2 shifts = 48 per day.None are out the door.
Yes starting the weekend before the 4th of July.
We are low on shaker 1000's,dooh did I say that.No we have plenty of shaker 1000's.Last time I looked there were 10 Shelby's out of 24 that had shaker 1000's for the shift.
We have a few logistical problems,but were plugging away.Nothing major.
I don't think this is correct....the 12th - 17th characters portion. VINs are assigned prior to production, so they cannot represent the order they come off the line. Many others who work in the plant say that we have not yet found a logical sequence to these numbers.busababy said:Well here goes, don't hold this against me if I am off a little, like the fine print always reads "Your mileage may Vary "
