Book Alert - Fall 2019

At NASSAM 2019, the main banquet had a guest speaker. Stan Kaminski provided us with the history of the Wilmington, DE Assembly Plant, the place where our Solstice’s and Sky’s were built. Stan worked at the plant for 30+ years, and retired in 2003. He came back to work at the plant as a contractor in 2005 overseeing the bumpers of the cars. Stan was the only manager-type person to span the complete production run. He created many many many pages of notes while he was at the plant. Those notes have been converted into a book! The book will be available for sale in the fall of 2019.

( The brick shown in this photo has been discussed in other threads on the forum. )

I understood that after the first announcement that it was finished almost 2 years ago getting proof copies and checking everything was a TON of work and took much longer than anticipated.

Can't wait to order a couple of signed copies !
