Automotive news indicates only 229 Solsti were produced this week. This is down from 319 units produced last week. I would imagine this might be a result of all of the rework that line workers were doing to previously produced cars. Perhaps GMLineDog can confirm this.

Sounds likely, I guess we'll have to wait for the official word though.

At that rate they will be hard pressed to get 20,000 built for the 2006 model year. Next weeks production will probably be down too because of the holiday.

From Pontiac HQ. "I have a new list this afternoon and still no VIN# yet. They are up to 820 in production. Next week should be it". The VIN she refers to is mine.

Actually another 229 built with what they had made already sounds like about exactly 1000 cars give or take some canucks. :D

Maybe they're haulting between EOP and the rest of the cars to go over the process to make sure it's working ok. Or they all took an early holiday. :D

Guys be careful asking LineDog specifics about production. He can get in trouble for posting details on the web.

Umm, he doesn't have to answer :D
No, I agree, because sometimes when we are asked questions we answer without giving it the proper consideration that we should. And he has been such a good contributor here that we don't want to get him into any trouble!

I don't think the Plant ran production on Friday as GM gets a 4 day weekend this weekend. That might just be for Canada though.

Was wondering why he hasn't been heard from! Too quiet without his usual contributions.
Maybe he said too much already?
