Inside the Ford Factory.

Our guest will be Mike Martin, Team Lead, Finish Assembly Line with Ford Motor Company.

We found out that the people who work this assembly line listens to Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio. Mike called us to say how much they enjoy the show and then we started talking about all things Ford and car shows in Michigan. It was such a great conversation that we decided to have him on the radio.

We are going to ask him how things are going and what’s the word about reports of inventory stacking up because of a Micro Chip problem. What’s it like work on the line in an automotive line and who gets to test drive the cars and trucks.

Mike is a young gun car nut and we would like to know what the car show scene is like in the Detroit area. We’ve heard of the famous Woodward Dream Cruise.. Where, for one day only, over 10 thousand cars run up and down a 9 mile stretch of Woodward Boulevard. And we’ve heard of another cool show called the Crusin’ Hines show.  They refer to it as the mini–Woodward Dream Cruise.

We appreciate all those on Mike’s Assembly line. Thanks for listening.
