    My name is Peter Torres and I'm a retiree from Chicago Assembly Plant (1976-2007) I live about 10 south of the plant. The president of the local UAW 551 is a friend of mine . His name is Chris Pena. The phone number to the union hall is 773-646-1472 I also know Dawn Diggs she is the quality control rep, her phone number is 773-646-7125 I would be more than happy to help with organizing the tour.( running of the Bulls in Chicago, SHO time in Chicago, back home for the SHO)I'm really looking forward to the convection. The plant should be up and running since vacation shut down is usually the first two weeks of July. It's really amazing watching the cars being assembled. A completed cars rolls off the line every 68-71 seconds. Bring comfortable shoes it's a really big plant! I can send you my e-mail in a pm if you like. By the way the Autobahn race track in Joliet, IL is really nice. Bring a picnic basket, folding chairs and make a day of it! Hope I can help. P.S. Are we going to be able to drive are cars on the track? I would really love driving my 2013 SHO and my 1997 SVT Cobra convertible on the track. Looking forward to seeing everyone in July. :- ) Your gonna love Chicago, it's one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Everyone should make some time to drive Lake Shore Drive. Start south from Solider field and go north. The lake will be on your right and the city on your left. It's really amazing at night. If you have time on Monday take the Chicago river boat Architectural River Cruise. One of my favorite things to take my out of town friends on.

    Thanks so much. Salivating to come to Chicago to hang out, to visit the plant and to give the SHO a hernia with very nice people.
