I could possibly due the following week. August 3rd through the 8th.

Though my Fiero is ... eh, it's no 10.

I'd make the trip over for that, if it was on a Sunday that I'm not on-call. 27th is currently good for me (though schedules change during summer).

Well my car will be done I'm itching for a road trip! Maybe the previous owner would be willing to go with me. He worked at the plant.

I'm good for the 27th. I can't commit to other dates without knowing what they are, but can try.

I wish I still lived in the Midwest. This sounds like it will be an interesting event.

I guess no news is bad news.

I am guessing that the 27th is a bust. I can't promise that date is going to be good for me or not any longer since there has not been anything solid set yet.

Maybe I will just pick a date and go by myself and hope I can find and convince someone to let me in for a couple of photos.

I've already blocked the whole day off, and had pre-arranged with my wife that I'd be gone. If plant #17 doesn't happen, I'd still be up for a meet & greet, and possibly a short cruise.

So where is this place? From some google-fu, it seems to be "888 Baldwin Ave, Pontiac, MI, USA"?

I want to thank Ron for setting up the visit to Plant #17. It was great meeting him and his grandson!
We are parked on what used to be the plant floor of Plant #17. Kind of felt like we were walking on hollowed ground.

Left to right, it's my son's 86 2M6, Ron's Pace Car, my Formula.

I did make it, but I missed you guys.

After making my way through construction & the border crossing:

* My US Sim card didn't work, and thus losing my nav directions when I rebooted my phone
* AND the cached copy of this forum page
* Luckily, I did print directions as a backup. Of course, I left them on the printer
* Stopping for directions, and folks not knowing what I'm talking about or where I'm going. I'm pretty sure one clerk didn't know where he actually was.
* Buying the only map in the convenience store
* It's a US atlas. It could get me to L.A., but doesn't have much for local roads.
* Finally finding Baldwin
* Accidentally finding Auburn Hills

Then FINALLY finding the empty lot that looked like what I saw on Street View. Unfortunately, it was already 4:45, and I didn't see any Fieros. I parked up the road, and was somewhat hot and pissed off at that point (I left at 12:00, and don't have A/C), so it's probably better I didn't meet anybody

I had no phone/data, no way of looking to see if anybody was still around, so I said "**** it", turned around, and went back home. I had my own personal thunder cloud over me the entire way. I'm not even joking. The rain started almost as soon as I found the empty lot at 4;45, and the weather radar had the clouds following me all the way up the 401.

Anyway, I just got home now.

Looking forward to next time!
