No wonder why their products had issues, they had gremlins in their factories.

That's sitting on top of a V8 on the rollers.

That's because it's not on the right spot in the assembly process. They reserved the duct tape for the electrical.

Rear bumper aligned to AMC factory specs - Check.
Trash cans er... parts bins in proper locations - Check.
Dope smokin' hippies installing drivetrain - Check.

All looks normal here.

You all are overlooking the happy customer and his "old lady" on the right, overseeing the entire build of their new dream machine.



ROFL, this is the best thread I've seen in a while. Keep them coming guys.

six guys working, two people supervising. Is it any wonder they went under?
Nice head gear Leroy.
I like the plywood floor. I see they spared no expense.

Is this assembly line conform to the ISO 9001 quality standard ? :D

BTW according to wikipedia, in 1986 a great state-of-the-art robotics (http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/../../wiki/Industrial_robot)-based assembly facility was opened by AMC as Bramalea assembly in Brampton Canada, less than one year before the sell of AMC to Chrysler...:(
The factory was ranked tops in Chrysler's 1988 quality audit of the cars produced in each of automaker's plants

I do have to say that by what I expect the UAW standards to be today that 3 working to each supervisor is probably a lot. :banghead:
