Don't know. Gotta see if it's for sure we'll have it again to get that figured. It'll be after noon, we know that much.

At the end of the month I get to go to the New York International Auto Show and attempt to win a new Jeep Wrangler Islander. Free trip and all that there and back.

Alright guys, we're back on again. And anyone wanting to go is gonna have to e-mail me contact info (cell phone at the least)

Chris:

I wanted to let you know that your tour request for May 14 has been confirmed. That said, please understand that production schedules change weekly and are out of my control, so there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your group until we're a couple of weeks out.

We would ask that you limit the size of your group to no more than 20. You should plan on sending me a confirmed list of participants with their contact information (including cell phones) by April 30.

We will provide information to you as we get closer about where your group should park and meet. Please plan on having the group assembled by 9 a.m. Those not with the group by 9 a.m. will not be admitted into the plant.

We typically don't allow cameras into our facilities, however I'm asking for an exception to this rule for your group. Until I have official approval, you should plan on no cameras or camera phones being allowed into the plant.

We are looking forward to hosting your group. We will be in touch again as we get closer to the date.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
So we ARE confirmed, the date may get moved a few weeks out depending if there's no/low production that week. (After all, she wants us to actually be there when there IS production going on).

So please locate my e-mail in my profile (fhajad@gmail.com), as I don't have a real account here, so PMs would get cluttered way too fast.

I'll let everyone know when the magic # 20 gets hit.

It's not. Just make sure whoever e-mails to give me your contact info (Cell and whatnot), Chrysler wants it for the list of people.

Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that I ask for.

There still is Junior. I got your e-mail as well. I just got home from the Jeep contest in NYC (I got to meet the Jeep CEO, head of PR and a few others, they were all pretty cool.)

I mentioned it in passing to the PR guy. Telling him how in one week I got tour approval, that contest, and a job. So I was on a good streak.

If you want to see how your Jeep is made, jump on this opportunity. Public tours are unheard of nowadays. I haven't seen one come through since the 80's.

I'll also add that upper management in the plant is aware of your tour and are expecting you. So, you can be sure that your contact in PR has passed on the info to the plant.

If you're still there when second shift starts on the Wrangler line, stop by the flat top and say "hi". I'll be doing the electrical test.

Back when I was heavily into Panther based Fords (Crown Vic's & Grand Marquis's), Ford did 'STAP' every year. It took place at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant (thus the name) in Ont. They'd run several groups of 60 people through a factory tour, and it was a big of an event for Ford as it was for the owners. They loved having 100+ cars return home for the event.

Granted, that was afew years ago, and now that STAP is closing, I'm sure that has changed.
