Factory #44 Buick City

This view shows the remodeling going on during 1985 getting ready to become Buick City. At the left you see body receiving has been mostly removed but the rest stayed to become a truck dock. When this building was first built it was for paint on the second floor and the engine dress on the first floor, also follow up had all it's offices located in a large mezzanine structure. Follow up was for tracking parts. Before Buick City the tire and wheel room was located north of #44 with the rail line extending through to #44 for offloading engines and transmissions. I remember one afternoon when some fault with the engineering on the engine line caused the whole assembly line to drop two feet, there were no casualties. One worker did die in an accident here during Buick City remodeling.
