Went 2 FORD Factory

Today i got the chance to visit the Ford Factory, in Broadmeadows.

And wat an experience i got to tour one of the main buildings where they were building the new fords, where in one day they can make up too 600!! Got to see all the robots in action as well as some workers on the lines.
Then got to see the new cars having the final test, then getting to see a whole parking lot full of brand new shiny cars.

and at the end of the day i won a ford shirt, pen and poster :) and got to make matthew aka qwikcorty really jealous

Sounds like you had fun!

I reckon they should have been giving away free sample engines though :)

hehe, "Sir/Madam, was that the XR6T Shirt you were after? Or the XR6 Tshirt?"

Re: Went 2 FORD Factory

I think a club activity of touring the assembly lines would be awesome. Could teach some of our less Car educated members stuff about how there car works.
