Having grown up and lived my entire life nearby (from 3/4 mile to about 8 miles), it seems like a part of me is gone.
Ford B-24 bombers, Kaiser-Frazer automobiles and the C-119 "flying boxcar" and then GM Hydra-Matic/GM Powertrain, automatic transmissions. I did a lot of exploring of some of the "dark holes" that had not seen the light of day since the 1940's.
I toured the plant when it was Kaiser-Frazer. I never imagined that my life would take me back there and end my working career there.
I drive by from time to time to watch the new development of the "American Center for Mobility" test facility. There is now a complete highway system with both vehicle bridges and a vehicle tunnel. All access is controlled and skirted with privacy fencing.
Anyone who has worked there in the past will be surprised by the dramatic changes.
