PostSubject: GM history only I would buy   Thu Mar 13, 2014 10:47 pm

I found these General Motors security officer uniform shirts a couple weeks ago. I noticed the patches illustrated the outline of the state of Massachusetts with a minute man or a rendition of Paul Revere in the foreground. I contacted our resident historian (Matt Trakker) and we connected the dots from there. I did a lot of reading, but they came from the Framingham plant that was closed in 1989 (used up until 93/94 by GM for there lease program cars). It's still owned by the auction house that bought the building 20 years ago. "The largest indoor auction in the world" they boast with a capacity of 10,000 cars and 3,000 people. Here's the wiki link and some pics. Tho it's not directly B body related, I thought I'd share an interesting bit of "hometown" history.

Very cool. Is the framingham plant the one you can see when you're on the train going to Boston from Worcester?

Also. Not sure if it was a GM plant but I was told the place my former company bought in Norton was an old GM plant too. The place is MASSIVE too.

Not sure about either. Where in Norton? Miles standish park?

I also picked this one up from the old GM Fisher Guide Division Plant Security in Anderson Indiana. Apparently manufacturing headlights and taillights for GM. A quote from the article - "This all came to an abrupt halt on Dec. 7, 1941, when Japanese planes launched the attack on Pearl Harbor. All over America, factories converted their normal production to the war effort. Guide churned out weapons, nosecones for aircraft and shell casings."
