    Default Hamtramck possibly resuming Volt production early

    I have heard Hamtramck will be restarting a week earlier than planned. Lets see if this holds true. If so, this is awesome news! One more nail in the naysayers coffin!

    It wouldn't surprise me. Yes that would be great but the start-stop nature of the production leaves much to be desired.

    They recently proved they could paid (not sure if finish) 1000+ Volts a week (per ZNS - Ziv's Numbering System).

    Over a 40-week year, that is still 40,000 Volts + Amperas. Quite good for this "EV thing that won't pan out, Obama car, junk American car" and all the other craziness you hear on the public forums and message areas after an EV story hits. Which is quite a few lately - Motley Fool keeps publishing strange stories - one day positive about EV, one day negative.

    Here's hoping for a 2000 US-delivery March. And at least 150-200 in Canada.

    heh heh heh.

    Do whatever it takes to keep your name in the news.

    Yep, maybe a bit schizophrenic per DonC, but if they get a 'good' headline out of it.....

    Maybe a few days off keeps the workers in a good attitude?

    I'm certain this will happen, I predict it will be at most 3 weeks down time instead of 5 weeks with this months inventory barley increasing, sale will show to be near 3K this month, no doubt about it, leaving them with with barley one month supply in inventory ... I've been tracking daily and we are not even up 300 cars even though the factory has produced over 6000 Volts in the last 6 weeks, they are selling at near the production rate of over 1000 week .. good news for the Volt faithful

    Recently cancelled my motley fool email subscription of several years because of that. You cannot rely on ANY organization for investment grade advice when they jump on the political bandwagon.

    The lead story on this morning's TV news was...

    Gas prices surge above $4 mark around Capital Region

    You might do a double take when you drive past the gas stations on your way to work this morning.
    A number of stations have posted big increases in prices.
    The cost of a gallon has surged past the $4 barrier, to $4.10 and beyond.
    On average, we're now paying $3.97 a gallon.
    Locally, according to the CBS6 Gas Gauge, you can spend as much as $4.15 a gallon for regular. If you use premium, you could be looking at prices closer to $4.40.
    Only GM could make the Volt.
