Default 1992 first shipment - photo from the archive

this photo was given to me by someone that worked there back in 1991. This is the first shipment build team with the first shipments of 1992 Bonnevilles, Wentzville Assembly, not sure but I think May, 1991.



If there'* any forum members who worked at Wentzville at that time, or know someone that did, I would sure like to hear from you, thanks, Mike

Hahahha wind noise and water in the passenger compartment. FAIL.

That was a nice video. I kinda wish all car makers would film one car from start to finish at the plant. Kinda like watching the birth of your car.
