Trip to Fairfax

August 18, 2011
Ever wonder how cars are built and manufactured? If you’re one of those curious types who like to know the “how” behind every creation, pay attention! I followed my dad to the Fairfax Plant last week, and I experienced first-hand the building process for the Chevy Malibu. Super cool! A little history for you: The General Motors Fairfax Assembly Plant is just down the street at Fairfax Trafficway, Kansas City, Kansas. This specific plant has been open since 1987 and currently produces two vehicles: the Chevrolet Malibu and the Buick LaCrosse. The operation runs 24 hours a day for 5 days straight and produces 1,300 cars a day! 1,300 cars day! Did you catch that? Check out a little sneak peek inside the GM Fairfax Assembly Plant … (on the down low) [youtube][/youtube] Just a heads up! September 23 from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., the plant is open to the public … free of charge! More info to come.
