Pontiac Power site indicates "X" for Kansas City assembly plant. Let me see, if I can now just determine which Pontiac models were produced there in 1976?

Eyupper, I passed by the Harrison Radiator plant in Lockport numerous times on my way to "work" in Middleport. Also familiar w/ Tonawanda engine plant as I also "worked" in that area near Niagara Mohawk power plant.

I remember, by the time I passed Gas(port)--I was nearing my Middleport destination. I was doing project work for FMC Ag Chemicals plant there--very close to school as I remember. I also recall some nice lunches there @ "Basket Factory" & "Apple-something" east of M'port, along 31.
